2011 Volcanic Activity In Stunning Pictures

Out of an estimated 1,500 active volcanoes around the world, 50 or so erupt every year, spewing steam, ash, toxic gases, and lava. In 2011, active volcanoes included Chile's Puyehue, Japan's Shinmoedake, Indonesia's Lokon, Iceland's Grímsvötn, Italy's Etna, and recently Nyamulagira in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Hawaii, Kilauea continues to send lava flowing toward the sea, and the ocean floor has been erupting near the Canary Islands.

Collected below are scenes from the wide variety of volcanic activity on Earth over the past year.

Internet Fandom Statistic

Twilight has fans more than population of Malaysia? I don't want to live on this planet anymore. Sigh...

If you wonder what is fandom - Fandom is the community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc. Fanfiction writers, artists, poets, and cosplayers are all members of that fandom. Fandoms often consist of message boards, livejournal communities, and people. Example - The Harry Potter fandom has some of the most diverse fans, from eight year olds to thirty somethings.

North Korea Mourns Kim Jong Il Death

North Koreans have shown extraordinary displays of grief in the days since the death of their leader Kim Jong Il on December 17th. Dec 28, 2011 marked the start of a two day funeral ceremony, as thousands of North Koreans lined the snowy streets of Pyongyang to witness the procession of vehicles as it made its way to Kumsusan Memorial Palace. 

Official North Korean news sources have been declaring Kim Jong Un the "great successor," but questions about the transition and future governance of the volatile, secretive state continue to make foreign governments wary. South Korean intelligence recently indicated that North Korea has tightened security in cities, put troops on alert and won loyalty pledges from top generals after Kim's death as it consolidates power behind the anointed heir. 

Collected here are images, most of them official North Korean releases, of the public mourning in North Korea.

Alice In Cool Waterland

What if Alice, after falling and falling inside the Rabbit hole, ended straight to the ocean? And what if the ocean surrounded a small island in the Bahamas? Although it may seem confusing, Elena Kalis imagined an underwater version of the classic Alice in Wonderland tale, only that this time it's Alice in… Waterland! 

Elena Kalis is a visual artist that was born in Russia and is specialized in underwater photography. She has been living for the last ten years in the Bahamas and for the new version of the story she chose her daughter as the perfect model. The results are some really fascinating photos that not only transmit all the surrealism and imagination of the original story, but take it a step forward. 

Between a mermaid and a survivor of a shipwreck, caught between fantasy and reality, the new Alice looks more beautiful than ever.

Celebrities That Look Hotter With Age

As the time goes by these few celebrities looks better than when they started acting. When it comes to celebrities you would never think that the older they get the better they look. However, these pictures of some of the biggest stars prove that age has been very kind to them. Seems like the time can't hurt them.

Inside The New Adidas HQ In Germany

Designers of the German architectural studio Kinzo completed work on the design of the new headquarters of the brand Adidas, based in Hertsogenaurahe, Germany. The 1,700 staff members moved into an amazing new work space that features intertwining glass walkways made to mimic the laces of a sneaker. Berlin design company Kinzo set out to create something that would reflect adidas inside and out.

The “Teamplayer” space is at the heart of the new design, supporting desktops, storage and creating a multifunctional room that looks like it’s zoned into honeycombs. In other words, the Kinzo design team have created a space within a space. It lets separate teams have a specific section, but not be completely cut off from the other groups working inside the “Teamplayer.”

The entire furniture system is designed specifically to meet the needs of the team, and work together as a system, rather than functioning as just individual pieces. German furniture specialist Planmöbel partnered with Kinzo to create environmentally friendly, functional furniture sealed with a monolithic surface and a powder-coated finish.

Super conducive environment. No reason for lack of productivity.

This Is Completely Insane Dude

While some people would find it unbearable to go anywhere near the edge of a cliff, these Chinese workers are building a 3ft-wide road made of wooden planks on the face of a mountain that's thousands of feet high. Once finished, it is hoped sightseers will flock to here to edge along and admire the views.

The 'road' - the width of a dinner table - they're assembling is on Shifou Mountain in Hunan Province and stands vertical at 90 degrees without any slopes or alcoves. What's more, these workers from China's eastern Jiangxi Province toil away on it with what appear to be few if any safety measures.

I always admire the Chinese, they can built anything out of nothing.

Weird World Sex Record

From an 82-year-old prostitute to a 500 people orgy and the world's gang bang record, meet some of the weirdest sex world records you may not see in the Guinness Book.

World's Largest Penis – 13.5 in

The official rank of the largest penis belongs to a man measured and documented by Dr. Robert Dickinson in the earlier part of the twentieth century. This record-holding penis was 13.5 inches (34 cm) in length and 6.25 inches (16 cm) in circumference. But the living owner of the world's biggest human penis is Jonah Falcon. Falcon's 13-5 inch member has been measured for a TV special, making him one of the few guys who can back up his bodily boasts.

Inside Emirates Airbus A380 - 5 Star Flight

The Airbus A380 is a true wonder of modern engineering. It is the largest airliner ever made, with a carrying capability of up to 853 passengers. Being 50% wider than the Boeing 747, it's closest competitor, the Airbus A380 has truly surpassed all previous achievements of plane construction and interior design.

A380's level of comfort (well, at least for business-class passengers) is remarkable. The entire upper-deck is dedicated for premium passengers. All seats can be transformed into full-sized beds (190 cm in length) with a pillow and a mattress. Each passenger has his own mini-bar and a full-sized, bartender-serviced bar is available at the rear of the plane. And on top of all, there are two shower cabins available during flight.

Business and economy class passengers access the plane through different jet bridges and stay on separate floors during the entire flight.

On 1st January 2012, next week, Emirates will fly Airbus A380 from KL to Dubai and will be the first commercial A380 flight out of Malaysia. Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 is expected to arrive in second quarter of 2012. Looking forward for that also...

Biggest Movie Flops Of 2011

Many Hollywood studios will be all too happy to forget 2011, which witnessed a troubling dip in moviegoing for much of the year at the domestic box office. There were several high-profile flops that lost tens of millions, including "Mars Needs Moms" and "Cowboys & Aliens."

Studios split grosses with theater owners, so even if a movie makes as much as its production budget, its still in trouble, not to mention marketing costs. And, after several record-breaking years, the domestic box revenues are running 4 percent behind 2010 levels. 

Here's a glance at the movies largely rejected by audiences.

Mars Needs Moms - Studio: Disney - Release Date: March 11, 2011 - Budget: $150 million - Worldwide Gross: $39 million

Sucker Punch - Studio: Warner Bros. - Stars: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens - Release Date: March 25, 2011 - Budget: $82 million - Worldwide gross: $89.8 million

iPhone Girls

Product promotion has taken a new dimension with Apple introducing iPhone for the mass. No doubt the fine communication device has already become a highlight product amongst one and all. The product's branding managers should however, gain cues from the enticing image series. The point and shoot feature of iPhone 4 is pretty unique and there certainly could be more takers if iPhone is promoted in the manner as depicted. 

However, there might be surge of such mirror point and shoot images on the Facebook profile pages too. The way it is depicted in the image might just make it a prime gadget among youth.
