Silliest toy ever?
Did you ever play with Silly Putty when you were a kid? Did you know it’s been around for 70 years? Did you know it was accidentally invented during World War II? Well you do now! James Wright accidentally invented this silly substance in an attempt to make cheap rubber for the United States of America during the Second World War. However, when it was rejected by American army bosses, he found it to be an amusing toy for children and marketed it as Silly Putty.
The art of balancing stones
"The very first time I tried balancing stones was back in 2010. I saw some stone sculptures in a park, when an old, wise man told me that it was a symbol for the balance of nature. I liked that idea, and after that I started making easy stone sculptures. After a while, I started experimenting with balance and I tried to make stone sculptures that had such small balance points so that it almost would look impossible."

Swimming mantis shrimp
This mantis shrimp was filmed while free diving in Lahami Bay in the southernmost part of Egypt. It's the largest species of mantis shrimp in the world. You don't see them too often, and even less often when they're swimming in the ocean.
