Optical Illusions

I used to get tons of forward emails from some friends sharing interesting optical illusions figures in it. Although, I personally dont see a practical use for it, i find most optical illusions very entertaining and mind-blowing, in a way. Some of these optical illusions are so complex and hard to comprehend that they sometimes twist my brain out trying to figure them out: how did that happen or is it really possible!

There are several types of optical illusions out there that been circulating in the internet. At Dynamic Optical Illusions page they provide some great collections of optical illusions.

Under The Sea Living Things

We live in a planet that has diversed living things all around us. We all share the same earth with several different types of animals. But if you come to think of it, majority of earth surface is a body of water, and only very few have the resoruces and the chance to explore deep under the sea. Thanks to new high technology and state-of-the-art equipments, we can now see what the sea explorers see below the ocean. We are all familiar with some types of fishes, but we barely scratch the surface when it comes to knowing all the different types of creatures living underneath the ocean and what these creatures looks like. To see some of the great findings that some deep sea explorers have seen, checkout Explore The Abyss website.

Unique Tree Arts

Many of us probably heard about Bonsai plants, a very popular way of re-shaping and training trees and let the plants grow in miniature versions. Bonsai plants were known to be originally popularized in Japanese cultures and now its been practice in different parts of the world specially to gardeners and planters.

Not until today, I never heard of anyone who does re-shaping and training of trees as they grow, and trained such trees to achieve certain figures like the form of a chair, a structure of a man or woman, etc. Can you imagine a tree that is alive that have trunks and braches shape like a chair or a person? Imagine no more, check out PookTre Garden where they have wide variety of amazing collection of living trees that are currently growing in all shapes and sizes!
