Watch the World's First Floating Wind Farm Ride the Waves | National Geographic

Fifteen miles off Scotland's North Sea coast is a new wind farm, with the world's first floating turbines.
It took years for the Norwegian company Statoil to design, build, and finally move the five towers. Each stands 500 feet above the water, with another 250 feet below. It's an expensive project, made possible by the participation of Scotland's government as part of the U.K.'s renewable energy goals. But the payoff could be big, too. A floating wind farm can operate in much deeper water than traditional wind farms. Since a great deal of the Earth's available wind power is far out at sea, being able to locate far from shore opens up a valuable—and clean—energy source.

Super Mario Theme - played by Four calculators

We never knew calculators could be used for playing music, but these ones, made in China and bought on Amazon, apparently do! The calculators don't have every tone but we'd say the Super Mario Theme played on them turned out pretty good!

The uploader, from Japan, created a video explaining more about these interesting calculators in the second video below.

Lunch Atop A Skyscraper: The Story Behind The 1932 Photo | 100 Photos | TIME

No harnesses no nothin'! Just another day in the park for these guys. Fascinating...
We don't know their names, nor the photographer who immortalized them, but these men lunching 800 feet up show the daredevil spirit behind Manhattan's vertical expansion.



Check out this dude playing a continuous solo on a weird instrument they call a triple-neck bass. And if that wasn't crazy enough, check out the second video of him going to the opposite extreme with a 15-string bass guitar!...

Playing a Trriple Neck Bass Guitar... 6 strings in total, but on three necks... One neck is fretless.. This is one of the craziest instruments ever!



Playing a 15 Strings Bass Solo... that's way too big..
The first 5 strings are just too low... You just cant play any clear note... lol

Amazing talent!...

When struggling with artistic vision, Fukahori's pet goldfish became his inspiration and ever since his passion and lifelong theme. His unique style of painting uses acrylic on clear resin which is poured into containers, resulting in a three-dimensional appearance and lifelike vitality.

This video gives you a glimpse of his amazing painting process.

U.S.P.S Postman Delivers Mail Santa Rosa Fires Drone Video By Douglas Thron October 10, 2017

So surreal...
Professional drone pilot and photographer Douglas Thron shows a United States Postal Service mail truck making deliveries in Santa Rosa’s fire-ravaged Coffey Park neighborhood.
Thron says while he was at the scene shooting aerial footage for NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday, he spotted the truck driving around the neighborhood.
“It was a trippy thing — he was actually delivering the mail,” he said. 
“I was shocked to see him because most of the roads were blocked-off, but he obviously had access.” - Mercury News

The USPS San Francisco District Manager Noemi Luna has issued a statement to clarify that the mail carrier in the footage was honoring a request by customers who would be returning for personal items. Read more: mercurynews

Unbelievable fire devastation never seen anything like it before.

Why can't we fly a plane into space ?

We kind of know why but this video explains it superbly!

Why can’t we fly a plane into space, what stops it from just flying higher and higher until we are in space?
Well, there several issues but assuming we are in something like a normal jet airliner, then one of the main problems is the air, or lack of it as we get closer to space.

NRA - Sunday with Lubach (+NRA: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver )

"Dear fellow Europeans, a devastating humanitarian crisis is threatening a small country on the coast of North America - the United States of America." They're talking about the NRA, but not the one you're thinking of. Check out this Dutch news satire program hosted by comic Arjen Lubach on an illness called the NRA...

There's something going on in the world. A situation we cannot ignore any longer and we need to address it. Say nay to NRA (nonsensical rifle addiction).

Unbelieveable AIRBUS A380 HARD CROSSWIND LANDING during a STORM at Düsseldorf - 4K

The video has been viewed over 1.2M times already in just over a day...

I have filmed a few thousand crosswind landings at several airports in Europe within the past years, but this Airbus A380 crosswind landing was extremly hard and extraordinary. At first it looked like a pretty normal crosswind approach but after touchdown the pilots tried to align with the runway which looked pretty incredible. I have never seen such a tremendous reaction of an airplane after a touchdown. You can see that the pilots tried to align with the runway by using the tail rudder and luckily it worked out.
This video shows the incredible skills of the pilots. Even after an unexpected wind gust after touchdown they managed to re-align with the runway. Incredible job by the pilots !!
