The bridge hangs 180 meters above ground, and actually sways with the wind, as if the glass bottom wasn’t terrifying enough.

A giant red leech hunts down a 70cm long blue worm and sucks it down like spaghetti. Paul Williams, the documentary’s director, said the footage confirmed “the predatory behavior of a rarely-seen and unidentified species for the first time,” the Daily Telegraph reported. Ecologist Alim Bium told the U.K. publication that very little is known about the giant red leech, which in this case measured 50…

    We recently sponsored the slightly-awkwardly-named-but-totally-worthwhile Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta, and so naturally the topic of email came up (surprise!), especially in relation to testing email forms with different email accounts. It can be a real pain to create yet another email address for your site, and so we all have only a few addresses to go around. Right? Wrong! If you have a gmail account – and who doesn’t? – you effectively have an infinite number of email addresses. And I was surprised how few of the experienced bloggers and content marketers I met…

The net effect is that although FeedBlitz is up and your feeds are being served, some subscribers are being sent to the wrong servers, and getting errors as a result.

Thankfully, the developer in question was kind enough to throw us a link about why that file was needed for Flash, and a few minutes later we had everything we needed to know. Thanks, Chad!

  • New: RSS Image Enclosures Now Visible

    13 Aug 2014 | 6:58 am
    A funny (peculiar, not haha) thing about major media site RSS feeds is that not only are the feeds often little more than a plain text (and so kinda boring) sentence, but also that their RSS feeds tend to include thumbnail images as enclosures. Enclosures are the part of a feed typically used for podcast media files, and the problem with stashing an image as an enclosure is that most people won’t see it, since the picture isn’t part of the main content. As a result, the feed and downstream feed usage (e.g. email subscriptions) are much less engaging for us carbon based life…

    Sue in Northbrook, Illinois says that some 10 months after tricking her 6-year-old daughter with Jimmy Kimmel’s “I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy” challenge, little Mia remembered the prank and, with a renewed sense of outrage, stormed off to express her anger in note form. Mia’s mom notes that she’s normally referred to as “Mommy” by her daughter (and by her friends as “Sue”), so she knew she was in trouble when she saw this missive addressed to “Susan.” related: The Parent Tax

    Science doesn’t believe in astral travel, and tries to give an empirical explanation for Déjà Vu. For example, we have the Dual Processing Theory, which says our memory uses two systems: one that retrieves the information and another one of familiarity (it indicates whether we have seen, heard, smelled, etc., something), so the déjà vu would happen when the second is active, but not the first. However, recent studies achieved to recreate it in a lab and they found out where it starts. I have already been here… So far, the unpredictable and fleeting nature of this phenomenon…

    Meet Leanne, a 40-year-old Australian website designer who loves dressing up like a horse. She goes by the name ‘Shyanne’ in her pony get-up, which includes a saddle, bridle and bit. Once the transformation is complete, she likes to trot about and pull her friend Grace behind her in a custom-made trap. Each of her ensembles costs anywhere between £5,000 and £10,000 (that’s $8,000 to $16,000). “Once the bit’s in, the tongue is out so you’re not speaking,” she explained. “If you drool while wearing a bit, you’ve got to be wearing the wrong-size bit.” As bizarre as it…
  • Artist Draws Detailed Portraits Using Only a Typewriter

    Sumitra
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:59 am
    While most graphic designers use high-tech software to create images, Álvaro Franca has chosen to return to the basics. Using a vintage typewriter, he creates incredibly detailed portraits of his favorite authors. Franca begins the process by creating a reference image on his computer. This allows him to plan out the areas of light and dark shading on the portrait. Once the reference is ready, he uses it as a guide and proceeds to choose the letters and the number of strikes he needs to achieve the desired level of darkness. Read More

  • Is The Chupacabra Real?

    Admin
    29 Sep 2014 | 9:51 am
    Is the Chupacabra real? The video below explains the possible species connections the Chupacabra could have. For example, is it a rat/kangaroo mix? Or what? Is the Chupacabra a new species all together? Is it a cross between two species?Many of the sightings that are hyped in the media are always proven false. That doesn't mean the Chupacabra isn't real. Nature can do weird things, and the idea of strange mutations isn't a crazy one. Until caught, the Chupacabra will remain reclusive, and mythological. The truth is out there.

    Researchers from a remote part of Siberia claim to have recorded real sounds from hell. They drilled a hole roughly 14 kilometers deep into earth's crust. The researchers noted an unusual amount of heat coming from the hole. After dropping ultra-sensitive microphones into the hole--to measure the earth's movements--they discovered strange feedback coming into the mics. The video below is a sample of what they recorded. It's the real sounds of hell. Maybe...If you get scared easily, don't watch the video. I warned you.'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much…

    Brr-brr-brr! Scientists have discovered a way to make the body of mice burn calories as if they were exposed to the freezing cold. A potential future treatment for obesity in humans!White fat to brown fat Humans are born with a decent amount of brown fat. Brown fat is the fat best used for insulation from the cold. White fat stores energy, while brown fat is the energy burner--which comes in really handy when you want to lose some weight. Sadly, as we humans get older, brown fat seems to disappear.

    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…

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…

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.

    Brooklyn-based artist Clement Valla scours Google Earth looking for anomalies. They aren’t visible right away, but when the viewpoint is in just the right position, the program shows warped linear figures such as roads and bridges as if they’re melting over the landscape. But they are not glitches or errors in the algorithm, but are the absolute logical result of the system. This is why Valla is so fascinated with them. 3D images like those in Google Earth are generated through a process called texture mapping, where the flat satellite image of the earth is applied over the 3D terrain,…
