When someone was sentenced for execution in the not too
distant past, being left to hang from a rope until dead was always the most
popular method. It provided an easy to observe spectacle without being
blatantly gruesome or cruel since the victim would generally be required to
wear a type of cloth bag over their heads to keep the spectators from watching
the terrified faces made in the man or woman’s last moments. However, even though
this aspect of the event was denied to onlookers, they could still get an
entertaining kick from watching a supposed bad guy either have his neck broken
from the initial drop or be strangled to death. It comes as a shock then that
one man made this very common execution method almost impossible.
Nowadays, it’s not enough for instruments to just fulfill
the function they were originally designed for. As people become more stylish
as well as competitive, they need their furniture to be distinctive to match
their lifestyle. For this very reason, the following classy desk lamps have
been created. Read on to know more.
Since 1997, Jay Shafer of the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company
has been living in homes smaller than most people’s closets. Though tiny, these
cozy, cabin-esque home designs somehow fit everything you need inside them: a
workspace, bedroom, bathroom (with toilet and shower) and living space. Some
designs include a porch so the homeowner can sit out and enjoy the open spaces.
An asteroid the size of football field will buzz past Earth
on 15th February, near our dear planet. It will not hit our Earth, but if the
case was something like this to happen, what would it look? An impact like this
would leave such a big crater, size of Washington. Scientist are pretty sure, that something like this would
happen, because a similar size asteroid made impact with Earth in 1908. A
meteorite weighing 100 million pounds entered the Earth’s atmosphere over
Tunguska in Siberia, burning up the sky and releasing the same amount of energy
which would possess 185 nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima.
Flowers are reproductive portion of any flowering plant (i.e
angiosperm family). Flowers present a multitude of combinations of colour,

A number of animals have evolved aerial locomotion, either
by flight or by gliding. Flight has evolved at least four times, in the
insects, birds, pterosaurs and bats, while gliding has evolved mostly among
rainforest animals, especially in Asia’s
rainforests where the trees are tall and widely spaced. Here is our list of top
10 most unusual flying and gliding animal creatures:
Airplane food has a reputation for being boring, even
disgusting. In fact, an entire website is devoted to posting passengers' images
of airline food -- the good, the bad and the downright ugly. These real-life
photos prove that Beef Stroganoff with roasted vegetables may sound scrumptious
on the menu, but when the flight attendant hands you some congealed beef
substitute with limp broccoli, your appetite vanishes as quickly as your
excitement for the plane ride. After all, one of the ways you can avoid
mile-high boredom (aside from reading and watching films) is to eat. If the
food is inedible, then your airplane experience is tainted.
Still, not all airlines skimp on the quality of their grub.
Some are true epicureans, offering passengers not only a choice chicken or
beef, but also gluten-free options, fine champagne and food presentations so
beautiful you could cry. And thanks to AirTrax, an organization that monitors
airline satisfaction, we can pinpoint the airlines that serve the best food.
For its 2011 Passenger's Choice Awards, AirTrax surveyed more than 18.8 million
people about their experiences on more than 200 airlines. We used AirTrax's
findings (and a few other sources) to come up with these superlatives for the
world's most delicious airline food. If you're already spending hundreds -
even thousands - on an expensive plane ticket, you might as well book a flight
on an airline that serves the best food.
Have you ever been
so hungry you’d eat just about anything? You look in the fridge and search
through your kitchen cupboards for something to fill that groaning hole in your
stomach. Gathering together all the edible items you then set about mixing them
into a bizarre, otherwise unthinkable concoction and, to your surprise, you
like it. You wonder why nobody has ever thought of mixing powdered egg, banana
yogurt and paprika before. That’s probably how cannibalism was invented hundreds
of thousands of years ago. Although there was probably much more slicing and
dicing involved. That’s right,
cannibalism is as old as mankind and we certainly weren’t the first to come up
with the idea. Animals have been eating members of their own species since the
dawn of time and think nothing of it. To them it’s perfectly natural. Many
species of arachnid, for example, instinctively begin to chow down on their
mothers as soon as they are born and some mammals have been known to do the
same thing. In fact, in some cases mammalian mothers will eat their own
offspring if they feel the conditions needed to rear offspring have not been
met. Ever seen a hamster do this? It’s pretty disturbing.
With the influx of Technology in almost every sphere of our
lives, most of us claim to be tech-savvy. We text message in the blink of an
eye, use Bluetooth while driving, and debug programs in a jiffy. However, many
of us may not have a clear concept about each and every ‘bit and byte’ of the
