The estimated age of this tree is around 2,300-2,700 years old. It has survived multiple fires, climate change and – thankfully – the modern-day man. With an estimated weight of about 1,385 tons, 274.9 ft. (83.8 m) height and 36.5 ft. (11.1 m) diameter (at base), this is the fastest growing living thing on this planet!

Even though there are many other trees that are taller and wider at their base, they are no match to the infamous General Sherman tree. This tree outranks anything living on this planet by its sheer volume (excluding branches) and is considered to be the largest living organism on this planet. The estimated age of this tree is around 2,300-2,700 years old. It has survived multiple fires, climate change and – thankfully – the modern-day man. It is located in Sequoia National Park, CA.

Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway... An 8.3-kilometer (5.2 mi) long section of County Road 64 is built on several small islands and skerries, which are connected by several causeways, viaducts and eight bridges—the most prominent being Storseisundet Bridge. (picture) Which is built high enough for the waves to crash through. Wow!
Storseisundet bridge, the longest of 8 bridges that make up the Atlanterhavsveien "The Atlantic Road' in Norway. Pic by Ken McVay (wired2cash, flickr)...We drove our Motorhome over this amazing bridge and Atlantic Highway. The waves were not this high that day, but the feeling of adventure was still high!
The Atlantic Road in Norway. Built high enough for the waves to crash through. I'm scared of bridges in the first place and you think I would drive over that? Hahah.

NOT World's Biggest Dog - Thanks to some clever Photoshop manipulation, the dog pictured above (which is actually a Neapolitan mastiff as near as I can tell, not an English mastiff as claimed) looks roughly twice its natural size. It's an obvious hoax. also see http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/hercules.asp

Castle House Island in Dublin, Ireland - gotta see this place! #travel
This is not in Ireland, Dublin. Actually it doesn't exist as one. The rock is in Thailand and the castle is only a portion of Lichtenstein Castle (which is in Germany). There is a claim on the Internet along with the claim that "Castle House Island" is a real place in Dublin, Ireland. It's actually "James Bond Island" in Khao Phing Kan, Thailand. The castle was placed on the photo using Photoshop. So moral of the day, don't believe everything you see on the internet ;)
Dublin, Ireland... Castle house Island. I need to visit this place.
Awesome place in Ireland. HAHAHA i have seen this in another picture and it said "the best zombie Apocalypes hide out ever!!"

Amazing Tree House in Papua New Guinea -- Doesn't it remind you of Tarzan? :D
Tree house via bon exposé
A Korowai treehouse, West Papua New Guinea, Indonesia. The Korowai are a nomadic forest people who live in tree houses, constructed close to 100 feet up in the jungle. The Korowai houses, well above flood-water levels, is to disrupt rival clans from capturing people (especially women and children) for slavery or cannibalism. The height and girth of the common ironwood stilts also serves to protect the house from arson attacks in which huts are set alight and the inhabitants smoked out.
Treehouse Papua New Guinea / The Korowai tribe which counts about 3000 people is one of the weirdest tribes in the world. They live in southeastern Papua/New Guinea and their culture still remains isolated from the modern civilization. As most of tribes, they have many weird customs and some of them consider cannibalism, too.

Jules Undersea Lodge - Key Largo, Florida Jules Undersea Lodge is 21 feet under the ocean's surface, and you'll enter the lodge through an opening in the hotel floor. Originally an underwater research laboratory, the lodge rests in a mangrove lagoon, which serves as a natural nursery for reef fish like parrotfish, snapper, tropical angelfish, oysters, and anemones. http://www.soflosocial.com/ #florida #sofla #soflo #soflosocial #keys #keywest #keylargo #floridakeys #soflokeys
I <3 this Idea of an underwater Hotel. The Poseidon Undersea Resort in Fiji offers a double bed and huge windows of acrylic plastic which fade into the ceiling allowing stunning views of the crystal clear blue water and the inhabitants of the ocean which can be fed directly from the rooms with a special remote control. All guests can use a submarine or a special tunnel from the beach to get into the resort’s restaurant, bar or spa. Sounds Nice!

Yes, the picture is real. Believe it or not, the man in the lighthouse was not killed. He was awaiting rescue via helicopter. That was the only reason he opened the door. Taken by Jean Guichard during a storm in 1989 off the coast of Brittany France,
La Jument lighthouse in the storm, France (photo: Jean Guichard) http://www.alphapix.com/lighthouses.shtml
The man in the doorway is dwarfed by the wave crashing onto this lighthouse.
The light house in La Jument, Brittany, France. One lighthouse keeper got the shock of his life waiting for a rescue helicopter during a fierce storm in 1989. On hearing the sound of an approaching helicopter, he went outside, ready to be picked up. Only it wasn’t his rescue ‘copter but photographer Jean Guichard’s. Guichard was out to get shots of the picturesque lighthouse in the storm when he captured the lighthouse keeper as well in a photograph that went around the world. NOT photoshopped.
Here comes the water. All I knew and all I believed are crumbling images that no longer comfort me. I scramble to reach higher ground, some order and sanity, or something to comfort me. So I take what is mine,and hold what is mine, suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine. Soon the water will come and claim what is mine. I must leave it behind, and climb to a new place now. This ground is not the rock I thought it to be. Thought I was high, and free. I thought I was there divine destiny. I was wrong. This changes everything. The water is rising up on me. Thought the sun would come deliver me, but the truth has come to punish me instead. The ground is breaking down right under me. Cleanse and purge me in the water.

lightning power of mother nature
One lightning bolt and one 65-foot sycamore tree make a convincing argument against taking refuge under branches during a thunderstorm. Considered by experts one of the best pictures ever made of a lightning strike, the image at left was taken in 1984 by Johnny Autery of Dixons Mills, Alabama, from his pickup truck(National Geographic July, 1993).

Faith perfectly illustrated. This farmer knows the strength of his walls. Our faith is based on what we know of who God is and what He promises, not hopes or guesses. I John 5:14,15 "And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, we know that we have the petitions we desired of Him." To know God is to know His will.
