A black swan feeds its fish friends every day to the amazement of passers by. He picks up the feed & takes it to the mouths of the waiting fish, "They became close friends after 3 years of playing together," say staff at Safari Park. "Every time I come to feed the swan, all the fish follow him to the bank, with mouths open & he takes the food & puts some into each of the hungry mouths .When everyone has eaten enough, the swan goes back in the water & plays with his fish friends again."
Arachnodactyly (“spider fingers”) or achromachia, is a condition in which the fingers are abnormally long and slender in comparison to the palm of the hand. It can be present at birth or develop in later life. It is also seen in some cases that all or a few fingers can be bent backwards of 180 degrees.
"Edward Mordrake was a 19th century English nobleman who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23 by poisoning himself because he could no longer stand having to live with the face on the back of his head."
Tim Walker is one of my favorites. He can do no wrong.
Japanese Light Truck. The final effect is so blindingly brilliant that they are not road legal with their lights on.
There apparently exists a subculture in Japan known as Dekotora which involves decorating a big rig cab (tractor trailer cab) to insane lengths with lights, chrome add-ons, and much more. The result is a truck that looks like something out of Transformers. They aren’t particularly good looking but the dedication to the craft is what surprises me the most here. These things are all out to one-up each other in terms of on-vehicle bling — wider, lower, higher, brighter…you get the idea.

Gaz guzzler: The Japanese 'light trucks' can cost up to 100,000 pounds to decorate and are powered by special generators. Love this
