Russian Artist Draws Sarcastic Comics That You’ll Need To See Twice To Understand

http://bit.ly/2eOJGQ4

“We live in pretty weird times, don’t you think?

Oh daily life, you’re so funny! Well,
funny if you’re a creator of wry comics like Anton Gudim. Boy, he sure
gives the ol’ mundane a run for its money! Poking fun at everything from
#FollowMe to Instagram to loneliness and YouTube culture, Gudim is
totally on top.

The world has never been more connected
than it is today, yet so many people suffer from loneliness and acute
depression. The rapid technological growth provides us with new gadgets
to simplify our lives, but, in fact, just makes us more miserable and
incapable.

That’s why sometimes it’s really healthy
to take a step back and reevaluate our everyday existence and we
think these illustrations can be more than helpful in such iteration
process.”

Japanese Artist “Hirotoshi Ito’s” Creates Incredible Stone Sculptures That Defy The Laws Of Physics

http://bit.ly/2eudOlr

“Normally, we come across stones and see them as nothing but gray,
lifeless and dull objects. Sculptor Hirotoshi Ito sees it differently.
He takes otherwise ordinary stones, and infuses them with personality
and life using his experience with metalworking. Suddenly, the stones
come to life with zippers with teeth, seashells or the clasps of a coin
purse.”

Glowing Blue Bicycle Path Does Not Lead to a Wizard, is Entirely Charged by the Sun

http://bit.ly/2eGKQN9

“Situated near Lidzbark Warminski in Poland, this glowing blue bicycle
path is illuminated by phosphor, a synthetic material that lights up
after being charged by sunlight. That’s right, it can emit light for
10-hours after it collects the energy that enables it to glow at night.
While the luminophore particles in the bike lane material can emit a
variety of colors, the designers chose blue since it seamlessly blended
in with the surrounding landscape”

“Chirkei hydro power plant is situated on the Sulak river of Dagestan. It
is the largest HPP in the North Caucasus, the highest arch dam of
Russia. And probably it is also one of the most beautiful dams in the
country.
Its construction began in 1964 and finished in 1978. The main structure
of the HPP is the dam, of course, the beautiful arch 232,5 meters (763
ft) high and 338 meters (1109 ft) long. The width of the dam is from six
(only six!) (19.7 ft) to thirty meters (98.4 ft)!”

What Have Our Russian Fellows Done On the Moon?

http://bit.ly/2eNk2xE

“Russian mind has been haunted by the Moon in all times. Last century it
was one of the most significant Soviet missions – to reach the natural
satellite of the Earth and explore it. And the country succeeded.”

But we never got to hear about all this in our mainstream news media, whether that was the old Soviet/West cold war official policies at the time or maybe the US government didn’t want the NASA countries populations to know that the Soviet scientists were just as advanced as theirs…if we could just put politics aside for a minute and put all our thinking resources together we could maybe then concentrate on fixing the big problems that our advanced technology has been creating for our planet – together..?

Newly Discovered Reef Is More Than 7 Times the Size of New York City

“..The reef has shocked and amazed its discoverers with its immensity.
Robin Beaman, a research fellow at James Cook University, explains,
“We’ve known about these geological structures in the northern Great
Barrier Reef since the 1970s and 80s, but never before has the true
nature of their shape, size and vast scale been revealed.” Beaman and
the rest of the team were able to reveal the watery wonder using
high-resolution seafloor data from a LiDAR-equipped aircraft belonging
to the Royal Australian Navy…”

Hidden Rainbow Hair Is The New Trend In London

http://bit.ly/2d9QnKl

“Want to do something crazy with your hair, but don’t want to get the weird looks on the street? Then Not Another Salon has a rather secretive solution for you.

The hairdressing salon posted a picture of a rainbow hairstyle on Instagram with the caption “Hidden rainbows are all the London rage right now. By Carla [Rinaldi],” which turned viral with over 12,000 likes so far.

The
idea is that the hair looks completely normal and ordinary until you
lift it and uncover a rainbow hidden within. Take a look.”

This article was posted a month ago so it may well now not be the new trend in London, but if it isn’t they’re gonna have a hard time thinking up something better than this..

Street Artist Makes The Trolleybus Disappear

http://bit.ly/2dyTXP6

“4th annual Vilnius Street Art
festival is hitting the capital of Lithuania, and with it comes an
awesome variety of artworks by street artists from around the globe.
One, in particular, has caught our attention, which utilizes the city’s
famous public transport – the trolleybuses.

Liudas
Parulskis was invited to leave a mark in his hometown and collaborating
with the festival organizers and Studio Vieta he came up with an idea
to make the trolleybuses disappear into the cityscape of Vilnius.

A Vanishing Trolleybus project
aims to break the normality and surprise the audience by offering an
unexpected point of view to the reality. It just disappears by
camouflaging itself into the landscape.”
