The tip of the iceberg

Everyone knows the expression “the tip of the iceberg”, meaning that a problem is often much bigger than it first seems . (compared with floating icebergs that have a significant proportion of their mass below the surface of the water)

Welcome to the world’s biggest indoor beach resort

Welcome to the world’s biggest indoor beach resort.
It’s called SeaGaia Ocean Dome, it’s located in Japan (duh), and it’s absolutely huge.

With 300m in length, 100m in width, it’s listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s largest indoor water park.
The temperature is 30°C, non-stop the entire year (the roof can open and close).
The resort has even added huge fake paintings of a beach with blue sky, to give people more of an illusion that they are actually on a real beach.

We have compiled some more photos for you to enjoy. (more…)

The Queen Mary 2 and it’s captain

The Queen Mary 2 still remains, to this day, the largest ocean liner ever built.
She used to also own the title of largest passenger ship ever, with a gross tonnage of 148,528.
In dimensions the ship is 345m(1,132 ft) long,  49m(161 ft) wide and 72m(236.2 ft) high.

Those numbers don’t really give you an accurate image of how big that actually is…
Luckily this picture does.
It’s the Queen Mary 2 and her captain standing on the bulbous bow.

Webfind of the day:

This website is really entertaining if you’re bored and have some time to kill.
Basically the website is a collection of e-mails that the website owner (Mike) has sent to people who posted classified ads. Mike then starts emailing them with only one goal in mind: To confuse, mess with and p*ss off the people who posted the ad.

I gotta hand it to the guy, he does an amazing job at this.
Just look at a part from his latest email:
