The language only three men speak - BBC News

A dying language...
Badeshi is an almost extinct Indo-Iranian language spoken in Pakistan. In 2014 "Ethnologue, Languages of the World" stated Badeshi had not been spoken for at least three generations but in 2018 the BBC found three men who could still speak the language.

Badeshi used to be the common languages of a small mountain village in northern Pakistan - now there are only three people left who can speak it.

NASA Examines Technology To Fold Aircraft Wings In Flight

Fascinating stuff...

NASA conducts a flight test series to investigate the ability of an innovative technology to fold the outer portions of wings in flight as part of the Spanwise Adaptive Wing project, or SAW. Flight tests took place at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center in California, using an autonomous subscale UAV called Prototype Technology-Evaluation Research Aircraft, or PTERA, provided by Area-I.

NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland developed the alloy material, and worked with Boeing Research & Technology to integrate the material into an actuator. The alloy is triggered by temperature to move the outer portions of wings up or down in flight.

The ability to fold wings to the ideal position of various flight conditions may produce several aerodynamic benefits for both subsonic and supersonic aircraft.

Teen Spends $1500 A Month To Become Barbie | HOOKED ON THE LOOK

And yet another Barbie wannabe. This is what NOT to do young girls...

EIGHTEEN-year-old 'human doll' spends $1,500 each month to realise her dream of being the ultimate real-life Barbie. At the age of 16, Gabriela Jirackova, from Prague, Czech Republic, started amping up her normal beauty regime with long blonde hair extensions, massive eyelashes, permanent make-up and lip fillers. The teen, who owns 300 Barbie dolls, recently underwent her first surgical procedure, at a cost of $4,500, to take her natural C cup size breasts to a G cup. And Gabriela already has plans for more cosmetic work, including butt implants, rib removals and even bigger breast implants to help her perfect her ‘living doll’ look.

‘Hulk’ Brothers Risk Death By Injecting Muscle-Building Chemicals | HOOKED ON THE LOOK

They seem like really nice guys so for their sake, we hope they have this under control because at some point, you have to know when enough is enough...

BROTHERS Tony ‘Hulk’ Geraldo and Alvaro ‘Conan’ Pereira, have both injected dangerous chemicals to make them look HUGE. As well as using extreme lengths to bulk up to a combined weight of 241kg, the brothers from Rio, Brazil, attend the same gym everyday and work out together for hours to improve their definition. Tony, 49, and Alvaro, 50, claim there was a time when they were ‘addicted to getting big’ but now believe they have it under control. Alvaro had been injecting his biceps and legs with a supplement - called Potenay B12 - on and off since he was 15 years old. Tony followed in his older brother’s footsteps. Taking their doctors advice, the brothers claim to have recently stopped injecting for health reasons and because their skin cannot stretch anymore.

Time Traveler From 2030 LIE DETECTOR Test

This time traveller from the year 2030 claims, among other things, that Donald Trump gets re-elected in 2020. He can't give you any evidence on anything, of course, seeing it will cause a paradox and all but the video has been going viral with over 420K views. 
We'll just file this one under 'Entertainment'...

What do you think? Is Noah a real time traveler from the future?

A MUM and former U.S. Navy veteran wears a corset 23 hours a day to maintain her tiny 18 inch waist.

Dancing on Ice! See skaters glide around magnificent Lake Baikal

Wow. So clear. It's considered the deepest lake in the world, and these skaters have captured video footage of their daring dance on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal, Siberia...
Skaters glided gracefully across the frozen surface of the world’s deepest lake, Lake Baikal, as seen in footage captured earlier this month.
Lake Baikal’s thick layer of ice is believed to be able to sustain even a 15-tonne car moving across it. In winter, the frozen Baikal is near transparent, allowing daring visitors to see through the trapped bubbles and all the way to the bottom of the lake.
The world’s largest freshwater lake is usually covered with ice for around five months of the year after it freezes in mid-winter.
