It’s true that these combinations may never happen for real but anything is on the cards – look at Virgin Inc now – that started with a vinyl music record shop iirc ?
Now it owns an airline, runs half of the countriy’s trains, they are a bank and a big internet access player and lord knows what else that I don’t know about..
“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
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
a more than likely everyday snapshot for some – somewhere..
“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
“This gambling hall wasn’t taking any chances.
An employee of the Spielothek casino in Halberstadt, Germany, heard
ticking and humming noises from a men’s bathroom trash bin Tuesday and
called police, the Local in Germany reported…”
“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”
“In some countries where it is illegal to broadcast or have pornography, hotels are exempt in order to accommodate the “needs” of their foreign clients.”
“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
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)!”
“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..?
ah well, so life goes on..

“There is a deadly animal hiding in this photograph of sand. Believe it or not! You will shock after seeing this.”
Note to self: Must be aware of walking around in the desert from now on…
Well I think yes angles do make a difference, but maybe a bit of make-up and / or photoshop can also make a big difference lol
“..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…”
LOL – Many of these even I’ve not seen before (I don’t think) – there’s at least one for everyone’s different senses of humour 🙂
