Michigan’s Blue Ice Is Absolutely Breathtaking!

If you live near the Straits of Mackinac which are located between Michigan’s Lower and Upper Peninsula, then you can see a natural phenomenon occurring there that doesn’t happen every day. When the conditions are right, the ice turns a beautiful shade of blue, which attracts visitors from all over to marvel at it. Some people may gather to stare at the icy creation, but most come from miles away to photograph the natural wonder. Both amateur and professional photographers alike find the massive, blue chunks of ice to be both inspiring and naturally artistic. What’s with the blue ice? Ice only appears blue when it is sufficiently consolidated so that air bubbles do not… Posted by Apostle Islands National Lakeshore on Monday, January 15, 2018 Tori Burley, a photographer from Mackinaw ...

Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean Just Received a Major Change

The next time you go on the classic Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disney World Orlando, you just might be doing a double-take during one scene in particular. That’s because the famous “redhead auction scene” that takes place about mid-way through the ride has received some modern upgrades, and we’re not just talking about mechanical, either. For years, people have complained that the wench auction was rather distasteful in a modern world where women are rapidly becoming more appreciated and more valued. In accordance with the feelings of their park guests, Disney Imagineers decided to spruce up this scene a bit. Rather than remove it altogether, though, Disney made the alterations while still retaining the scene’s original tone and essence. It’s still an auction, and you can still...

Man Risks His Life Rescuing a Trapped Owl

A Daring Attempt Source 1 He inched his way closer and closer to the great bird of prey as it raised its head back, ready to strike anything that reached towards it. The owl had become entwined in some fishing line, and it assumed that the man was here to take advantage of some helpless prey. Rescuing this bird would prove most difficult, and even potentially dangerous if he wasn’t careful…. Comments

The Challenging Training Process That Every Delta Flight Attendant Must Go Through

Delta Air Lines has always been considered among the more respectable airlines, and for good reason. They’ve built themselves on almost 90 years of high quality air travel, but that passenger comfort largely stems from the flight staff. Though it seems like a simple job — hand out pretzels and drinks and recite that safety procedure at the beginning of every flight — the Delta flight attendant position is anything but that, and is perhaps one of the most competitive jobs that exist. “I am told it’s harder to get invited to the Delta Flight Attendant training center than to get into Harvard University,” said Danny Elkins, a Delta employee since 1991, and he’s pretty spot on with that assessment. In 2016, only one percent of the 150,000 applicants were invited to partake in the training prog...

150 Georgians Used a Cave To Wait Out a Tornado

Earlier last week, many parts of Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia were swept by some heavy storms, which were marked by gale-force winds and baseball-sized hail. When one small town called Cave Spring located 70 miles northeast of Atlanta heard of tornado warnings in their area, they immediately knew where to go. 150 people retreated to the town’s claim to fame — a natural limestone cave which is a fairly popular tourist destination for its stalagmite formations and “Devil’s Stool” rock. As the people took shelter inside the cave to protect themselves from the tornado, some took photos and shared them. Source 1 Source 2 Many people in the south saw heavy damage from the storms, which ruined many homes and took away power for thousands of other houses. Fortunately for the people of Cave Spri...

Some American Exchange Students In Italy Cooked Pasta Without Water And Ended Up Starting A Fire

An American in Paris is a classic movie and beloved Broadway musical that has delighted audiences for years. However, it doesn’t look like an Italian version will be happening any time soon, especially after this most recent incident involving three American students who are currently living in Florence, Italy. The 20-year-old girls purchased pasta from a nearby market with the intention of making it for dinner. Things went slightly awry when they placed the pasta (sans water) into a pot and turn the stovetop on. Suffice to say, the dry noodles quickly caught fire, prompting the girls to immediately call for the help of local firefighters. They arrived armed with the missing ingredient and ready to save the day. Thankfully, no one was harmed and the only minor damage was to some, “kitchen ...

Countless Cacti Are Being Stolen From Arizona’s National Park So The Rest Are Being Microchipped For Protection

There’s a reason why national parks are so treasured and protected. With so much urban development occurring and expanding wherever land is available, it’s important to preserve these areas that are part of our nation’s history in addition to being home to fragile ecosystems and rare botanical specimens. As a result, it’s illegal to steal from or vandalize any national park, but visitors to the Saguaro National Park in Arizona don’t seem to care much for adhering to the law. The Saguaros cactus, what the park is named after and famous for, has the ability to grow over 40 feet tall and live for more than 200 years. Recently, it’s been the main source of vandalism at the park as they can be sold for as much as $100 per foot. Kevin Dahl, a program manager for the National Park Conservation As...

This 23-year-old Is Trying To Be The Fastest and Youngest Person to Travel to Every Country

23-year-old Taylor Demonbreun recently graduated from Vanderbilt University with degrees in economics and public policy. After studying abroad for one of those semesters, Demonbreun realized that becoming an investment banker wasn’t her life goal any more. As a result, she spent her last semester at school planning an epic world tour which would start right after graduation.

Fancy A Visit To The World’s Happiest Country?

According to the 2018 World Happiness Report, Finland is officially the happiest country in the world. Last year’s first place winner, Norway, came in second place this year, with Denmark, Iceland, and Switzerland close behind. The report is done by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network for the United Nations. This year, it was released on March 14, just in time for World Happiness Day on March 20. Each country is ranked on six different variables: income, trust, freedom, life expectancy, social support, and generosity. The report’s co-editor John Helliwell, a professor emeritus of economics at the University of British Columbia said, “The top five countries all have almost equally high values for the six factors found to support happiness, and four of these countries — Denmark, Sw...

These Epic Parenting Fails Are So Bad You Can’t Help But Love Them

Toddler Tape Source 1 This is what happens when dads get overwhelmed…they resort to duct tape. Who knows what this poor child did to deserve such a punishment, but someone should let this dad know about playpens or cribs as a better (and much less sticky) alternative. Comments
