    In a bid to deter rivals from stealing the affections of his pretty girlfriend, a Chinese man actually spent two years fattening her up! You Pan, from southern China’s Guangdong Province, started dating Yan Tai a couple of years ago. She weighed only 98 pounds at the time and was quite attractive, a fact that made You Pan afraid other suitors might steal her away. Worried that he might lose her, the man masterminded a diabolical plan to make her unattractive to other men. Over the course of two years, You Pan made sure that Yan Tai got plenty to eat – he treated her to big…

    When Pakistani photographer Atif Saeed set out for a drive through a safari park in Lahore in 2012, little did he know that he would end up risking his life for what is possibly the best photograph of his career – a close-up shot of a charging lion! It all started during the drive, when Saeed spotted a lion a short distance away. “It as an adult male lion, and what I liked most about him was the beautiful, dark hair on his neck,” the 38-year-old later recalled. He got out of the car, left the door open, and crouched in the grass to take pictures with his 500mm telephoto lens. He did…

    Lots of people love cats, but how many would actually want to smell like one? Well, as it turns out, there’s a small army of cat-lovers out there who love the smell of cat paws. So much so that they’re willing to spend money on this Japanese hand cream that promises to lend them the irresistible whiff of feline paws. The cream is the brainchild of Japanese online retailer Felissimo. The company claims that the unusual idea came about during a brainstorming session, when an employee suggested a cream that leaves the skin as soft and squeezable as a cat’s paw.

    When a woman from Nanjing, China, read that chewing gum could help her lose weight, she decided to give the technique a try. Unfortunately, she seems to have taken it a bit too far. After incessantly chewing gum every single day for the past six months, the technique backfired on her – not only did she fail to lose weight, her jaw actually bulked up from all the exercise! The woman, who is going by the pseudonym Gao, said that it all started when she and her friends read an article about the benefits of chewing gum. The report reasoned that chewing gum burns up to 60 calories per hour,…

    16 Apr 2015 | 7:03 am
    The ‘Black Pearl’ is a one-of-a-kind steam-powered motorcycle created by Dutch bike builder René van Tuil, of Revatu Customs. Looking like the love child of a chopper and an old steam engine, the unique vehicle can make any diehard steampunk fan simply drool just looking at it. Although named after Jack Sparrow’s notoriously fast ship, van Tuil’s amazing creation is anything but fast. Powered by a functioning steam engine, with a rear wheel driven by a large crankshaft, the unique motorcycle can reach an unimpressive top speed of just eight kilometers per hour. That…

Watch this video for full instructions: ShareShare These little blasters can be used indoors or out, it’s best to take them outside for the full flight, inside they tend to ping off the walls and leave marks on the carpet.

    We’re getting rather used to revelations about sharp practice in the banking sector. The row about HSBC’s tax services to rich clients has raised, yet again, crucial questions about the business culture which allows such scandals to emerge. One common idea is that those involved have lost their “moral compass” and succumbed to the imperative of pure greed as they employ subterfuge to do things which end up doing harm to the general public. There is a problem with these approaches. Those who use the “greed-hypothesis” tend not to define what they mean by “greed”, as distinct…

Don’t hang clothes over radiators. It might make them dry quicker but it makes the radiator work harder and so use more energy. 2. Turn the thermostat down by one degree. This is a message that keeps rearing its head in a money and heating advice context; some experts believe that you won’t feel the difference and that the ideal temperature to set a thermostat at is between 18°C…

    The source or headwaters of a river, defined as the furthest place in that river from its estuary or confluence with another river, is an elusive concept. On a colloquial basis, some define the source of a river at the drainage basin from which water runs year-around, such as a lake. Sometimes another river may flow into the lake, in which case the source of the other river is taken as the source of both rivers, as in the case of the river Nile. At other times, the confluence of two or more rivers where the river’s name is first used is taken as the source, as in the case of the river…

    Geysers are a rare phenomenon because they require a specific set of conditions to occur. Generally geysers can be found near active volcanic areas where there is an abundant source of subterranean heat. Underground water or surface water percolating down comes in contact with hot rocks and expands into steam that forces boiling water out of the surface through a vent, and a geyser is said to have born. Human activities have also given birth to a number of geysers. Usually an oil drilling company or someone who’s looking for water would accidentally poke a hole through a chamber of…

I discovered how the ancient Egyptians and builders in Peru, Yucatan and Asia, with simple tools, have lifted stones weighing tons “… and his castle (built out of coral rock in blocks of up to 30 tons) is irrefutable proof.

The island is based on piles of stones, that had to be carried there by the local fishermen in their boats. Between 1765 and 1767 it was turned into a military fortress by William, Count of Schaumburg-Lippe. His vision was an impenetrable getaway in his own land. In 1772, the first German submarine, Steinhuder Hecht, was constructed on the island. Wilhelmstein today is a museum and a popular tourist destination Steinhuder Meer. For more information…

    Located near Olduvai Gorge lies the spectacular, yet mysterious, ash dunes of Shifting Sands. Formed from volcanic ash, these crescent-shaped dunes are a rare phenomenon, and are technically referred to as barkan. These dunes are formed when there’s ample dust on the ground and a unidirectional wind to create the moving effect. The volcanic ash (or dust) collects around a rock, and continually gathers until it forms what appears to be a small sand dune. This process is continuous, and as it progresses the unidirectional wind causes the dune to move. In the case of these Shifting Sands,…

    18 Apr 2015 | 12:44 pm

  • 3 Odd Homes Built out of Spite

    12 Apr 2015 | 6:31 pm
    We have all been witness to or at least heard of feuding neighbors. Two men screaming at each other from their lawns about a tree that straddles both properties. One man wants to cut it down because it attracts ants. The other man doesn't want the tree cut as it provides ample shade to his home. Land surveyors are called out, property maps are spread across the kitchen table. It’s amazing how such small things can bring out the absolute worst in people. What happens when you take your feuding to the next level? What happens when your neighbor, your city, or anyone pisses you off and you…

    18 Apr 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Evil can be defined as the intent to violate all or some rules, laws and procedures. It is also a deliberate wrongdoing, designed to hurt others. In his book, In Beyond Good and Evil, Friedrich Nietzsche argues that the natural functional non-good has socially transformed into the religious concept of evil. Ayn Rand, on the other hand, believed that reason is man’s means of survival. Anything that tries to destroy or negate a man from living a proper life is evil. This article examines 10 evil children as they are portrayed in popular culture. Let’s take a look at the role models our…
