Most Dangerous Bridge in the World

Don't look down! But also notice how this guy pauses in the most dangerous spot and takes a sweeping look around with his camera. Oh... my... God... By the way, this is the Musou Tsuribashi bridge in Japan, more info.


The bridge at Aiguille du Midi at the Mont Blanc mountain is also pretty scary, though in a different way:

Do you see it in the photo below? If not, click to enlarge:

One Horse Power

A worthy addition to our "Strange Vehicles" series is this van with literally one horse power. Kurtsystems made it as an equine training system:

A mile-long street art creation at the Sacred Week in Honduras

During the Semana Santa (Sacred Week) in Honduras people decorate the path of the procession and create literally miles-long piece of art on the pavement... see more pictures here:

For another incredibly painstaking decoration, see Creation and Destruction of Sand Mandalas by the Buddhist monks in Tibet.


Tulip Fields Aerials

Spring hesitates to come to Calgary, so I am compelled to post these aerial shots of tulip fields in Netherlands:

Huge Railroad Guns from Russia

Railway heavy cannon (used with armored trains) on display in Sevastopol, Ukraine, and another one, TM-180, left in a rusted condition on a track in Russian forest:

Another fascinating lizard is a Thorny Devil

Continuing the theme of our popular article about Komodo Dragons, here is a Thorny Devil, also known in Australia as the Moloch.

They absorb moisture through their skins. Fascinating to watch. The thorny devil actually moves the moisture around the outside of their body and direct it into their mouths. Essentially they drink by standing in a puddle - see video here.

Love the R1200C on the side of the Smart 4/2

To those saying the girl Jpop group is singing in Korean:

Kpop is a huge hit right now in Japan. Bands like Shoujo Jidai and such are incredibly popular. So I'd wager that if the group isn't AKB48, there is a huge chance that it's one of about 4 or 5 South Korean pop groups enjoying massive success right now.
