How Many of Me?


"There are 311,950,054 people in the United States of America. If everyone in the U.S. lined up single file, the line would stretch around the Earth almost 7 times. That's a lot of people.

Best Drunken Yoga Poses

Sure you may not remember what happened after that 9th beer but if you’ve woken up with body aches chances are you’ve burned most of those calories while performing drunken yoga. Here’s the top 10 best drunken yoga poses, which may help explain your raging glute ache you woke up with."

World's Largest 3D Painting


"An artist has created the world's largest 3D picture in a square in front of a shopping mall in Chongqing, China. The 3D picture, entitled 'Lion Door Valley', measures 23.3 metres wide and 32.3 metres long, while the wall it utilizes is 6.09 metres high. After being certified by Guinness World Record officials, it was named the largest 3D painting in the world. The huge image was painstakingly created by Qi Xinghua, a master from the China Central Academy of Fine Arts, who said it took him a month to complete. The painting is so lifelike that passers-by say they feel dizzy while standing on the 'ropes' in the picture, which are strung across a huge 'hole'."
