    Nestled at the foot of two lofty mountain ridges, connected by a low-lying area where two inlets meet, Klaksvik is the second-largest city in the Faroe Islands and an important fishing harbour. The city is located in the island of Borðoy, in a well sheltered bay surrounded by dramatic high mountains with some of the highest peaks in Faroe islands.

    Shah-e-Cheragh is a funerary monument and mosque located in the city of Shiraz, in Iran, where lies the tomb of Amir Ahmad and his brother Mir Muhammad, sons of the seventh Imam and brothers of Imam Reza. Amir Ahmad and Mir Muhammad were hunted down and killed by the caliphate on this site in AD 835 during the Abbasid persecution of the Shi'ite sect. The brothers' tombs, originally only simple mausoleums, became celebrated pilgrimage destinations in the 14th century when the pious and art-loving Queen Tashi Khatun erected a mosque and theological school by the tombs.

  • Top Ten Saddest Robot Deaths

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Robots in cinema are awesome. Since most of us were children, we always wanted a cool, nice, tough robot to be our friend, and it never seems to happen. But that is the beauty of the magic of film. In film, robots can be awesome and friendly and cute. The other problem with cinema is that they love to kill things off in the end. It is like a painful lesson of life, squeezed into 90 minutes. Everything you ever love will die. Yet I digress, lest I depress myself and you even more than this list might.I figure now would be the best time to embrace the idea of "good robots", as it seems that our…

    Remember the research we posted that proved that Kansas is indeed flatter than a pancake? Geographers Jerome Dobson and Joshua Campbell took exception to the methods used in that study, and indeed it is a case of comparing apples and oranges. Still, the two things being compared came straight from the old adage. Dobson and Campbell did their own research into the matter.For their study, The Flatness of U.S. States, the pair developed a measure of human-scale perception of flatness by creating an algorithm that approximated what a person of average height would see if they were standing in a…

He studiously avoids eye contact, for he must give the appearance of disinterest if he is to close the distance without arousing suspicion. It's clearly working.Note the Dr. Seuss quote on the wall.

    In his wonderfully eerie photo series “By the Silent Line,” French photographer Pierre Folk documents the Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture (Little Belt Railway), an abandoned railway in Paris. Work began on the 19-mile circular system in 1852, and it was originally built to link competing Paris railways and to provide ready access to the city’s 19th century defensive wall. The system was partially abandoned in 1934. Some lines have been repurposed for the city’s modern transit system, but much of the system is slowly going back to nature. photos by Pierre Folk via…

The magic wands which pass unseen give color to the world around us. And…

Early in the evening of 31 January 1953, the weather in northern Europe was damp, chilly, and blustery.

He’d married a young woman from a local aristocratic family and now the couple had two children and a third on the way. But news from France eventually brought word of Godin’s father’s death, meaning that there was an inheritance to sort out. It was time to return.

The ordinarily gentle horse-drawn traffic of the up-and-coming metropolis seemed a bit more dense than usual, and as the morning progressed the avenues and boulevards became increasingly crowded. At 9:00 AM, almost as if on cue, thousands of doors on thousands of buildings burst open to vomit humans, furniture, and other sundries out into the bright morning sun. Within moments the streets of New York were a jangling amorphous pandemonium. English author Frances Trollope happened to be in New York City to witness this…

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:10 am
    A comic strip artist will end up drawing the same characters so many thousands of times, that you’d figure they could draw them with their eyes closed. But could they really? In 1947, Life magazine decided to find out by challenging 10 contemporary comic strip artists to do just that – draw their characters with their eyes closed. The results, needless to say, are hilarious. Most of the artists were remarkably successful at re-creating individual features of their characters, but they put them all in the wrong places, like a Picasso painting or a botched Mr. Potatohead toy.

    Like many girls her age, 25-year-old Lauren Adkins has a huge crush on vampire Edward Cullen from the Twilight movies, played by Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson. But Lauren has taken her infatuation to a whole new level – she actually got married to a life-size cardboard cut-out of her perfect man. She lives with the cut-out, goes on dates with it, and pretty much considers it her partner for life. Lauren, from Las Vegas, said that she’s been obsessed with romantic fairytale endings ever since she was a little girl. “When I was a child, I watched the Disney versions of Snow…
  • Mysterious Motorcyclist Hunts Drivers Who Litter, Throws Trash Back in Their Cars

    A Russian biker has taken it upon herself to teach people not to litter while driving. And her methods are quite extreme – she follows the offenders on her motorcycle, picks up their trash, and throws it right back into their cars! The mysterious crusader recently uploaded a video of herself in action, which she recorded using a GoPro camera attached to her helmet. The video is so hilarious that I’m not surprised it hit 10 million views in just three days. The two-minute clip starts off with the woman’s motorcycle parked on the sidewalk, behind a bright red car. The car driver is…
  • Jon Barnes’ Ultimate Taxi Takes You on a Ride Unlike Any Other

    Jon Barnes’ ‘Ultimate Taxi’ is probably the closest that the muggle world will ever get to the Knight Bus in Harry Potter’s magical universe. Barnes has managed to completely transform a plain old checkered taxi cab into an experience of a lifetime – it’s a delightful explosion of light and sound rolled into one single ride. Jon started working on the remarkable taxi in 1983, and it’s seen several transformations since then. In it’s present form it incorporates lasers, synthesizers and an internet-connected computer. “The taxi ride is a 45-minute musical, magical…

    ‘Netropolitan’ is a new social networking website that caters exclusively to the ultra-rich. Described as ‘the online country club for people with more money than time’, the website costs a whopping $9,000 to join. And that’s just the initiation fee; there’s also an annual membership fee of $3,000. That sounds like an exorbitant amount, considering the fact that popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter are free of charge. The whole thing almost sounds like a prank, but Netropolitan founder James Touchi-Peters assures us that the service is quite real. “This is 100…

    A man from China’s Sichuan Province wants a mother so badly that he’s offering one million yuan (a little over US$160,000) to any woman willing to take on the role. Kuan-Yin Tsui, who is in his 30s, has become an internet sensation in China, following his bizarre proposition. Eye-witnesses say that he was actually seated at Fanghu Park with a bowl of banknotes in front of him, in the hopes of finding a mother. Behind him was a red lantern with his phone number plastered on it, and a large poster that displayed his terms – he wanted his would-be mother to be a woman who was at least…

    It is morally wrong to describe a whole group of people as "incarnations of evil". Unless we’re talking about property landlords, since that's a scientifically proven fact. I've had landlords SO SCARY that the supreme rulers of Hades, Beelzebub and Moloch, would run away screaming, which is exactly what I do when I see my landlord approaching, tentacles dragging behind him. I once managed to get a two-month delay in paying a particularly terrifying landlord by sending him an unsigned cheque. When he got round to asking why it was unsigned, I told him I had…

    If they invited me on one of those radio shows where you choose your top 10 music tracks, I would choose the national anthem 10 times, so that everyone in the country would have to stand up for an hour. The fact that I would find this incredibly enjoyable is conclusive proof of Original Sin and the fact that humanity is deeply evil at heart. Or at least I am. Life can be hard for people with a naughty streak. Like that American guy who got "devil horns" implanted in his forehead because he thought it looked cool. Everything was fine until his recent court case where he had to beg…

It had once contained some sort of giant TV, so was big enough for me, a pillow, the newspaper, and some kids. But I leapt out in excitement after I read an article in the paper which said radioactive wild boars, contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, had been discovered in European forests. THE STORY OF THE YEAR! Yet the report infuriatingly failed to answer the obvious question: what super-powers would you get if such a…

    At one time, I changed my Facebook name to NO ONE ON EARTH, so that every time I pressed the “Like” button, my friends got a notification saying “NO ONE ON EARTH likes your post”. Mwah ha ha ha. Yes, I am a total wacko and it was a horrible message to send. But it made everyone laugh. Often a statement and the medium in which it is sent deliver opposite messages. There have been a spate of these in the news recently. For example, I was intrigued to read that a farmer in the US drove his tractor around a field to make a huge love heart for his beloved wife.

    Shah-e-Cheragh is a funerary monument and mosque located in the city of Shiraz, in Iran, where lies the tomb of Amir Ahmad and his brother Mir Muhammad, sons of the seventh Imam and brothers of Imam Reza. Amir Ahmad and Mir Muhammad were hunted down and killed by the caliphate on this site in AD 835 during the Abbasid persecution of the Shi'ite sect. The brothers' tombs, originally only simple mausoleums, became celebrated pilgrimage destinations in the 14th century when the pious and art-loving Queen Tashi Khatun erected a mosque and theological school by the tombs.

Another, slightly smaller, Lake Neale is located adjacent to the northwest. Both lakes lie on the Amadeus Basin that was filled with sediments eroded from the nearby mountains more than 500 million years ago. Because of the aridity, the lakes are inundated only during periods of heavy rain. For the most part, Lake Amadeus remains dry and coated with a thick crust of brilliant white salt.
