Deadly Spider Egg Sacs Whats Inside Is Amazing & SCARY

Lets cut open 4 deadly Redback spider egg sacs! These spider eggs are from the second spider infestation I have had. The deadly Redback spider is a close relative to the Black Widow. These spiders lay multiple egg sacs and there can be hundreds of baby spiders in each egg sac. This time around the spider egg sacs have not been drowned in water, so the results are totally different. Quite amazing to see whats cut free from the spider eggs, arguable my best ever surprise egg video on YouTube. My garage will never be the same and the children loved the apple pie.

HUMAN FLYING DRONE

Casey Neistat didn’t have time to feel scared when he strapped himself to the drone that was about to fly him off the side of a cliff in Finland.

“I was directing eight camera people,” said the 35-year-old YouTube star, whose holiday-themed video of the feat went viral this week. “There were so many responsibilities on set, and there’s so much to think about just from, like, a pragmatic perspective when you’re actually being flown by one of these things, that there wasn’t enough room for that kind of emotion.”

It also helped that Neistat had “absolute trust” in the man operating the drone not to fly him into a tree as he snowboarded behind it, merely holding a line.

Welcome to Europe’s first undersea sculpture museum

Jason deCaires Taylor is descending fast. Below, he just submerged these sculptures in what will become Europe’s first underwater museum, Museo Atlantico, in Lanzarote. 15 metres under the surface of the sea, a bunch of figures, unmistakably human, are static. It is spookily still but for the schools of fish weaving through this newly arrived sunken society.

Convenient only to snorkelers, divers and sea life, the museum uses human sculptures as a way to create awareness about the loss of ecosystems and the risks the ocean is currently facing. His main aims is for the sculptures to increase the “marine biomass” by acting as a breeding site for local species in the area. Check this out! #jasondecairestaylor #underwatermuseum

Amazing Glowing Beach Maldives

Holidaymakers in destinations like the Maldives are sometimes treated to a natural phenomenon that turns the night-time ocean into a field of glowing stars. As waves break on the sandy shore or bare feet step into wet sand a bright green-blue glow appears. This magical effect is caused by bioluminescent plankton that often appears in warm coastal waters.

According to WIKIPEDIA: 

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is a form of chemiluminescence. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria and terrestrial invertebrates such as fireflies. In some animals, the light is produced by symbiotic organisms such as Vibrio bacteria.

Mark Zuckerberg 2016 The Lifestyles Of Young Billionaire Entrepreneurs

Mark Zuckerberg 2016 - The Lifestyles Of Young Billionaire Entrepreneurs

Zuckerberg, 29, and currently worth $19bn, according to Forbes, drives an Acura TSX and a Honda Fit, which cost about $30,000 and $18,000, respectively.

His Acura TSX, is an entry level luxury sedan which uses a 2.4 litre in-line 4 cylinder engine. It can churn out 201 hp and 172 lb-ft torque and has a 5 -speed automatic transmission, which comes with steering-wheel paddle shifters for optional manual shifting. The car is quite packed with luxury features like leather interior, automatic climate control, a seven-speaker sound system, Satellite Radio, Bluetooth and HandsFreeLink.

Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 in White Plains, New York, to Edward Zuckerberg, a dentist, and Karen (née Kempner), a psychiatrist. Even though, he was raised Jewish, Zuckerberg had since described himself as an atheist. As a junior student, Zuckerberg won prizes in science (mathematics, astronomy and physics) and classical studies. While most of his mates were busy playing games as young students, Zuckerberg was creating them.

In his early teens he created a music player named Synapse -- as a school project -- with help from a friend, which used artificial intelligence to understand one's taste in music and created a playlist accordingly. Software bigwigs like Microsoft and AOL tried to buy it and even recruit Mark. But he refused both. Instead, he went to Harvard in 2002.

On February 4, 2004, with the help of his room mates, Dutsin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, and using the finance provided by another friend, Eduardo Saverin, he launched what was then called, The Facebook. It was an instant hit, and soon made Mark the next big thing.








Immortal Species

They say the only certain things in life are death and taxes. This isn’t necessarily true. Ageing, and by extension death, is caused at the most fundamental level by cells within our bodies losing the ability to repair themselves. This problem however is not present in all species. There are organisms living right now on this planet that don’t play by the same rules that we do, and are effectively immortal.






Biggest Airport in the World Ever Built

With airports getting bigger and better all the time, this brand new transport hub is set to beat them all.

Set to handle 90 million passengers a year, the airport will be more than simply a place to fly from.

With half an acre if space planned for tax-free shopping, travellers will be able to shop ’till they drop.



Megastructures - MRT Malaysia Urban Diggers

The "MRT" will not only significantly increase the current inadequate rail network but will also serve to integrate the existing rail networks and alleviate the severe traffic congestion in the Greater KL metropolitan area. The proposal was announced in June 2010 and was approved by the government of Malaysia in December 2010. Construction of the first line commenced in July 2011. The project also represents one of the economic entry point projects identified for the Klang Valley "National Key Economic Area" under the Economic Transformation Programme by the Malaysian government.



10 out-of-this-world facts about space and about us

Here are 10 out-of-this-world facts about space and about us.

We have eight planets in our Solar System. However, outside of our Solar System there are thousands of other planets. The extra-solar planets or exo-planets are in orbit around another star. So far we have almost 1800 confirmed new worlds, with another 3000 awaiting confirmation. Astronomers are looking to a star’s goldilocks zone for planets that may be habitable, just like the Earth. The majority of planets discovered so far are hot gas giant planets.

Sea Monster in Alaska CAUGHT on Video by U S Government ?

While most people have to go searching for the Loch Ness Monster, a vacationer was fortunate enough to be gazing at the Loch … when Nessie simply popped her head out of the water … at least that’s the story we heard. A 28-year-old woman was on the balcony of her holiday home at Loch Ness when she saw a mysterious ripple on the surface, followed by a ‘blue thing’ swimming across. She grabbed her phone and managed to snap a few pictures … but when she tried to zoom in, the object disappeared. The woman claimed it’s not often one sees a monster while on holiday … but did she really see one?

Vengeance of Giant Python

Vengeance of Giant Python. Florida’s Everglades National Park is one of the last great wildlife refuges in the U.S., home to numerous endangered animals and plants, as well as alligators. But the park has become a dumping ground for a variety of non-native species, including what may be tens of thousands of Burmese pythons. Some were intentionally released by pet owners, others were set free when hurricanes hit Florida’s animal warehouses. Pythons have moved into their new home with a vengeance, thriving in the protected wilderness and disrupting its delicate ecosystem. Follow scientists and snake hunters as they study the problem and try to find solutions to the growing crisis.



Iguana chased by snakes


For racer snakes, the emergence of marine iguana hatchlings is a feeding bonanza.

As the newborn iguanas emerged from under the sand dozens of the deadly predators slithered after them.
