A pig dives into water in Ningxiang county, Hunan province, on November 15, 2012. Villager Huang Demin drives his pigs to dive into the water from a 3-meter-high platform at least once a day, believing that the diving exercises would improve the quality and taste of the meat. He would later sell the meat of his pigs at three times higher than market prices, local media reported.

That’s bullsh*t — “He was buried at sea according to Muslim tradition.” I’ve got many Muslim friends where I live in Michigan. When I go to a Muslim funeral in Detroit, we don’t hop in a chopper after the ceremony and drop the body into Lake Erie. We’re so worried about upsetting the Muslim world. We just shot him in the f**king head, do you think they care how we conduct the funeral?

"The Akademik Fyodorov is a Russian research ship that’s been to both the North Pole, and to Antarctica. This time-lapse video packs an entire 201-day Antarctic expedition into 10 minutes, starting in Cape Town, South Africa, and traveling around the coastline of the Frozen Continent. What happens? There’s a lot of ice breaking—during which the Akademik Fyodorov seems to beach itself like a whale before backing up and ramming the ice again—and a lot of loading and unloading of cargo. It looks like the boat’s mission was to resupply several inland research stations. At one point, a helicopter unloads the coffin of a man who died in a fire at one of those stations. The Akademik Fyodorov shipped his body back home. There are frolicking penguins, the construction of an entire airplane, and (at about 7:19) the construction on an on-deck swimming pool, which is quickly filled with frolicking Russians."

"From June to November 1969 the American Falls were dewatered. This action cut back the normal flow of 60,000 gallons a second to almost nothing. Most of the diverted water was either sent over the Horseshoe Falls or diverted to the Robert Moses generating plant’s upriver intakes. The action enabled Canadian and US power companies and the US Army Corps of Engineers to do on-the-spot inspections and aerial photographs of the river bed’s rock formation. This was all part of a plan to reduce erosion to the Falls."

"A 3-year-old toy poodle Mizuho sits in "Dog Wash Machine," for shampooing at a pet shop named Pet World Joyful Honda in Tokyo, Japan, Tuesday, March 16, 2010. Inside the closed machine, a dog receives a service that includes tear-free shampoo, rinsing and blow dry in the 30-minute course."
When is the human wash machine coming? The animal trials seem to be successful.
