“……an origami paper boat is folded on the river bank, then sailed away……”

Over two days in early November, German artist Frank Bölter staged two touching performances of World’s End . The performances, in which the public helped Frank fold and launch a paper boat, before he sailed away in it, grabbed the imagination of London and the rest of the world where it was picked up by the media from Canada to China.

Nature can be gentle, gracious and tender, but there are times when nature decides to show us its other face which is..not so gentle, but rather furious and rough. These photos magnificently display this face of mother nature, which is a face of dangerous beauty. Enjoy these photos with storms, hurricanes and other fantastic displays of mother nature’s wrath and beauty.

The Most Scariest Airports In World

Flying may be one of the safest methods of transportation but it doesn’t always look that way, especially when flying in and out of certain airports. These 10 air travel destinations challenge the skill of pilots, the structure of aircraft, and the underwear of passengers.

Tioman Island Airport, Tioman Island, Malaysia

You may not have heard of Tioman Island (known locally as Gunung Daik Bercabang Tiga) but likely you’ve seen it on TV or at a movie theater: “Bali Hai” in the 1956 film South Pacific was actually Tioman Island. This beautiful tropic isle lies off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia, due east of Kuala Lumpur and roughly north-northeast of Singapore.

Berjaya Air operates 2- and 4-engine turboprop planes capable – barely – of negotiating the single 3,254ft (992m) runway at Tioman Island Airport. Pilots must first set their planes on a heading directly into a mountain range, with the pilot then performing a 90 degree turn to line up the runway. Late touchdowns are ill-advised as overshooting the runway means plunging off a sheer cliff.

Princess Juliana International Airport, St. Maarten

Originally constructed as a military airport during World War II, Princess Juliana International Airport today serves as the main hub for the smaller island destinations of the Caribbean. Takeoffs from the airport require quick reflexes as a sharp turn must be made immediately after becoming airborne, so as not to slam into the mountains.

The Sharpie Lamborghini Gallardo

The car was actually done in sharpie markers on the paint and then finished with a clear coat for protection. It took about 2 weeks total. Prestige (Lamborghini Miami) definitely shocked a lot of people when this car was first seen in California during the Concorso Italiano/Pebble Beach week. It attracted attention everywhere it went. Its design is a collaboration of artist Jona Cerwinske and Auto SuperShield
