There was a look in the birds' eyes that Mr. Hitchcock found unsettling, and as Alfred reached for the intercom to summon his nurse a wild eyed crow started pecking at his face...Celebrate Hollywood's master of suspense with this Bird Attack by Fathi, it's a great way to show…

    3 Jun 2015 | 7:16 am
    Humans are naturally born nurturing to animals. This is why a lot of us keep pets in our homes and love them as if they were our own children. In rare cases though, loving our pets too much can put our lives at risk. Such is the case of a woman who claims her cat licked her eye causing it to go blind. A woman named Janese Walters in Omaha, Nebraska told a news station how she discovered she had gone blind in her left eye after allegedly being licked by her cat. Janese told a reporter that when she woke up on the morning of Thanksgiving, she found out she couldn’t see out of her left eye.

    Have you ever seen something that just makes you go…”huh??” Of course you have and you probably love it, otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Well, I ran across something the other day that made me do just that. It took me a moment to figure out what was wrong with today’s photo illusion. It actually isn’t that difficult to spot, though, and when you do see it, it’ll blow your mind a little. So, can you see what’s wrong with this photo illusion right away?

That’s right, there’s not just one July full moon, but there are two this month! The second July full moon, known as a blue moon, will take place on July 31st. Did you know that the July full moon is also called the thunder moon, due to the increased thunderstorm activity during the month?

    I love summertime! I usually like to take advantage of warm and sunny summer days and take the kids for a walk. Yesterday was one of the rare sunny days we’ve had in this otherwise wet and disgusting summer, so I did just that yesterday. The kids and I went for a walk in the local park. We even got a chance to see a few little critters! First, we saw a swan… Ooh… Or was that a squirrel?? What do you think? Is it a swan or squirrel? It’s a pretty ambiguous image, and it could actually be either a swan or squirrel, depending on how you look at it. The first animal that…

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

    It was early in the morning on the 1st of May 1832 in New York City. 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 9:00am, 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 peculiar…

  • Animals Leave Their Skeletons Behind In Stunning Dark Drawings By Paul Jackson

    5 Jul 2015 | 1:54 am
    Paul Jackson, a British artist based in Toronto, creates stunningly detailed and dark pen-and-pencil drawings of various animals with their skeletons and sometimes organs lifting out of their bodies. By treating them with respect, the pictures of their insides look more like mystical anatomy lessons than roadkill. Jackson started drawing when he was 5 and always thought that this was what he’d do for the rest of his life. Though he toured with a band for 8 years, it seems like this just might end up being true! More info: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Cartel (h/t: demilked)

The young artist is able to paint incredibly detailed portraits on the palm of his left hand, before stamping it on a paper canvas to create a permanent imprint of the artwork. Powell calls the process ‘hand-stamping’; it’s a tricky technique because not only does he use the irregular surface of his palm to create detailed works of art, he also needs to work fast to complete the portrait before the paint dries, for a clear imprint. The end result,…

  • Generating Magic cards using deep, recursive neural networks

    11 Jun 2015 | 4:28 am
    Ein Benutzer des Magic: The Gathering Forums MTG Salvation kam im Rahmen seiner Forschungen an Neuronalen Netzwerken auf die Idee, ein Netzwerk mit den Daten der bisher existierenden Karten zu trainieren, so dass es daraus neue Magic Karten generiert. I saw a fun article about training a neural network on arbitrary data to generate novel sequences. For example, you force the network to read Shakespeare over and over and eventually it can write its own texts in the style of Shakespeare. I saw that and thought: hey, why not Magic cards instead of Shakespeare? So I downloaded the source code…

    During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet.

Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery…

    The Curious Diary of Mr Jam

  • 5 stories of people suing themselves

    Mr Jam
    29 Jun 2015 | 7:38 pm
    I’M ALWAYS DISAPPOINTED when I see a moving train approaching a tunnel and there aren’t two men fighting on top. I think I’m starting to lose my faith in the movie industry. But talking of fighting, this writer has been advised to take out a massive lawsuit against a VILE INDIVIDUAL who has fouled up my whole life. I refer of course to myself. Suing yourself is all the rage these days, I hear from a reader who works as a paralegal (“lawyer who leaps from planes”). He told me that last year in the US state of Minnesota, a government van crashed into a parked car owned by one Megan…

    Made an important discovery. There is no masculine way to carry a giant teddy bear and a Disney Princess helium balloon back from a funfair. Never mind. My ego should recover in three to four months with sufficient stroking. And now to the news. The biggest consumer of alcohol on the planet is an Asian, a science report said. That headline made me think they’d located a gentleman I shall refer to only as Uncle E. When I was growing up, his daily beer intake matched everyone else’s daily oxygen intake, the only difference being that humans can survive several minutes without oxygen. When…

    ALL adults have a vital duty to tell young people about The Olden Days (a phrase which covers the period from the early Triassic era to about 2008). “In the past, people would go A WHOLE DAY WITHOUT TAKING A SINGLE PICTURE OF ANYTHING,” I declared. My Facebooking Snapchatting children were stunned. “So how did you have fun, Dad?” one asked. “We would look at clouds and see if we could find animal shapes,” I told them. Yes, life was thrilling then. They have no idea. But now family life is upside down! In my house, the only people who can open child-proof packaging are the…

    Disaster! I’ve been doing my new calorie-counting app wrong. I got a new high score every day.  Then the wife tells me that the whole point is to get low scores.  “So how do you win?” I asked.  She said: “You don’t. People just do it for a few months and then give up.” !!!!! What’s the point? Grrrrrr.  Whoever designed this app knows NOTHING about how male brains work.  We need bigger to mean better, which, if you think about it, makes evolutionary sense, right?  It runs deep. If you ask a guy whether he would rather die of old age or be vaporized by a volley of a 100…

    A NEW ISLAND appeared off the coast of Japan and scientists are watching it to see evolution at work. So I was told.  I was a bit dubious. Doesn't evolution take a while?  The reader who sent me the report, Sunita Chau, admitted that the only biological entity on the island of Nishinoshima so far was bird poop. I suppose one CAN imagine bird poop evolving into extremely primitive live forms such as bacteria, single-celled micro-organisms, and Fox News viewers, for example.  She said she reckoned that nationalist politicians in some countries probably shared 99 percent of their DNA…

    Mr. President,In this time of economic hardship, many American people cannot see even the slightest glimmer of hope. The price of food, gasoline, utilities, and living in general, all continue to increase, yet the paycheck of the Middle and Lower Class remains the same. An entire generation is paying into a Social Security system from which they will likely never see a dime, while another generation is benefiting from this should-be travesty.

    Of all the hoaxes that ever were, I've never wished so deeply that this was one of them.http://www.robinwilliams.com/I've wondered for a while now which celebrity I was sincerely attached to would pass away in my lifetime first. Philip Seymour Hoffman was halfway there. His acting was thoroughly impressive. I'd enjoyed his reemergence into my line of sight with The Hunger Games. Twister, in which he played the outlandish "Dusty" has always been one of my guilty pleasures. If I had a dime for every time I've watched that movie, I'd be retired, which would be slightly embarrassing, but it…

    Amusing Planet

  • The Sacred Mani Stones of Buddhists

    4 Jul 2015 | 8:45 am
    There is a particular six-syllable Sanskrit mantra or hymn that’s very sacred among Buddhist. It’s recited as om mani padme hum, which loosely translates to "Behold! The jewel in the lotus", an invocation to the four-armed bodhisattva (an enlightened being ) Avalokiteshvara, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. But its true meaning goes far beyond that. The mantra cannot be translated into a simple phrase or even a few sentences because it contains the essence of the entire teaching of Buddha. Recitation of this mantra along with prayer beads is therefore, and quite…
  • St John's Eve Bonfire in Alesund

    3 Jul 2015 | 10:57 pm
    The Feast Day of Saint John the Baptist is celebrated all over Europe and parts of the United States and Canada. The Christian holy day was fixed at 24 June, because the Gospel of Luke states that John was born six months before Jesus or Christmas eve, but in most countries festivities are mostly held the night before, on St. John's Eve. Because the Feast of St. John coincides with the June solstice, also known as Midsummer, the celebrations are also referred to as the Midsummer’s Festival. Saint John's Eve is traditionally celebrated with bonfires. In many countries, bonfires are…
  • The Giant Sun Mirrors of Rjukan

    3 Jul 2015 | 3:22 am
    Rjukan is a small industrial town in the municipality of Telemark, in Norway, that lies at the bottom of a deep valley at the foot of the mighty Gaustatoppen mountain. The steep slopes of the surrounding mountains completely block out the sun for half the year, leaving this thriving community of 3,400 in permanent shadow from September to March. But since 2013, the town’s residents has been basking under a tiny patch of sunlight that falls right over the market square. This light is reflected from three large heliostatic mirrors called “Solspeil” installed on the mountainside about 450…
  • Bous a la Mar: The Spanish Festival of Chasing Bulls to The Sea

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:42 am
    All throughout the year, but particularly during local festivals, a number of bull-related sports and events take place all over Spain. While the festivities vary, the bull-related events most invariably involve thrill seekers throwing themselves in front of a herd of bulls while the agitated animals chase them through the streets. The most famous of these events is the “Running of the Bulls” that takes place during the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona. In the seaside town of Denia in the province of Alicante, 600 km south of Pamplona, a different type of bull running takes place —…

    2 Jul 2015 | 12:27 am
    Koyashskoye is a salt lake located on the coast of the Kerch Peninsula in Crimea, and separated from the Black Sea by a strip of land. Like many salt lakes around the world, the waters of Koyashskoye has an impressive pink hue, due to the presence of a microscopic algae that thrive in the saline water. The lake is not large — about 4 kilometers long and 2 kilometers wide, and quite shallow with an average depth of just one meter. Because of its shallowness, countless tiny, rocky islands dot the lake’s surface. When the water evaporates, the salt in the lake crystallizes around these rocks…

    Photographer Oskar Zapirain captures eerie forests blanketed in thick fog, blurred light descending on green trees creating shade that blends in with the land covered in moss. Zapirain has been drawn to this landscape for years because of the unique light as well as the way it lures in the viewer into a mystical atmosphere. The forest is located near the town of Oiartzun in Basque Country, Northern Spain. This particular forest is rare because of the regions charcoal production history.

  • Deadvlei – Dreamlike Forest Landscape in Namibia

    14 May 2015 | 9:56 am
    DeadVlei or Dead Vlei (dead marsh) is an otherworldly landscape which is a sun-blackened dead forest in a dried oasis surrounded by rust-orange giant sand dunes. The claypan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. However, the climate changed and the sand dunes encroached on the pan, blocking the river from reaching the area. The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, however they have not decomposed due to the dry climate. It is a very surreal place which is why it was used as a psychic […]

    The gold rush in the Yukon late 19th century drew thousands of adventurers in the northern United States and Canada. The rough terrain required the construction of a railroad – a narrow gauge railway with a 914mm gauge. Between 1898 and 1900, the railway line was driven through the mountains under the most difficult conditions, an average of 2,000 workers per day were used. The White Pass and Yukon Route with a track width of 914mm is really a route of superlatives and leads from Skagway, Alaska to Whitehorse the capital of Yukon. The highlight of the WP & YR […]
