Preserved in Amber

|
http://www.ambericawest.com/better.html

Amber is fossilized tree resin which has been appreciated for its colour and natural beauty since Neolithic times.

This page looks at some examples of how wildlife has become trapped inside amber deposits and subsequently preserved. You can buy the specimens if you like but I have to say - they ain't cheap!

Embrace Life-Altering Concepts

|
http://snipurl.com/23gtdjc

"Do you have one life lesson or philosophy that has changed the course of your life?

Sometimes you can read something or have a life experience that hits you over the head with its brilliance and perfection. A huge mind shift takes place, and your life is forever altered for the better."

I can say that books tend to do this to me - it happened in the early 90's when I first read Whitley Strieber's 'Communion' and then again about 10 years ago when I read Michael Drosnin's 'The Bible Code'...your head just explodes with all the possibilities of things that we don't fully accept due to not understanding them

http://gawker.com/Reply-girls/

"Weird Internets is a series in which we spotlight and explore funny, bizarre, or otherwise interesting corners of the internet. Today, we talk to Alejandra Gaitan, whose cleavage-baring videos as "TheReplyGirl" have turned her into one of YouTube's most hated personalities."

Read the article linked to above before watching this video! Otherwise it will not make sense..

Wood Chip Artwork

|
http://snipurl.com/23c104h

Incredible wooden chip artwork by Sergey Bobkov. This is like the scale models of ships in bottles made with matchsticks and that kind of thing.

I am afraid even if I was skilled enough to reproduce this kind of art I just wouldn't have the patience..

How To Have Lucid Dreams

|
http://snipurl.com/23bgq4l

"Learning to have lucid dreams... Fun. Intensive. Frustrating. Euphoric. Bizarre. Yet ultimately, conscious dreaming can be a very rewarding and life-changing experience.

Being able to lucid dream is like any other skill. There is no magic secret to behold. But there are a number of tried-and-tested methods that you can learn and develop."
