The man who gave up money and lives in a cave in Utah

A while ago, we were telling you about the Iranian man who lives alone in the desert and hasn’t washed in 60 years; today’s story is similar, but very different. New footage has revealed insight into the life of Daniel Suelo – the man who has chosen to live without money for the past 12 years […]

The mind-blowing microphotography of Daniel Stupin

Daniel Stupin is a a PhD student in the University of Queensland and my research is in the field of marine biology. But he’s also a nature photographer and videographer and his work is amazing.

Bing images: the January edition

I don’t really use Bing all that often, but I think that they do some things significantly better than the competition. However, I don’t want to get into a discussion about search engines and all that, that’s not what this is about. When I was using Bing, I noticed that they add an awesome image […]

Everything you wanted to know about homeopathy but never asked

Last week we wrote an article about an Australian research which concluded that homeopathy is nothing more than a placebo. I’ve received a myriad of emails, ranging from skeptical to downright violent (which was somewhat disturbing), all of which were accusing us of spreading false science and not understanding just how good homeopathy actually is.

Amazing aerial photography is beautiful and useful

He crisscrosses the skies of Germany, capturing images of farms, cities, industrial sites – whatever he discovers and looks interesting to him.

Remarkably bizarre deep sea creatures – not a freak show

OK, I know, there’s a lot of articles on the Internet along these lines – “The most bizarre ocean creatures“, “Deep sea monsters“, etc – I don’t like those articles. These creatures are not monsters, they are not freaks – they are remarkably adapted to an extremely unfriendly environment, with immense pressure, low temperatures and […]

While documenting leopard seals in Antarctica for a 2006 National Geographic magazine story, photographer Paul Nicklen had a truly fantastic experience, which he documents in the video below. Seriously, watch the video – it will blow your mind! Make no mistake – leopard seals are remarkable predators! They’re pretty much on top of the food […]

Rare portraits of Roald Amundsen

Roald Engelbregt Gravning Amundsen – a famous Norwegian explorer, the first man to ever reach the South Pole. He used the skills he learned Netsilik people about Arctic survival skills, using sled dogs for transportation of goods and wearing animal skins in lieu of heavy, woolen parkas, which could not deter cold when wet (see below). In 1903, Amundsen led […]

Country maps made from traditional foods

Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves, use regional foods to create physical maps of countries and continents around the world. This doesn’t mean that the food originally came from that country, just that it is heavily incorporated in the country’s diet. Exploring new places through the food you eat is often a portal to the cultural […]
