Merchandise Monday #55

A party of Dwarves stopped by in the garden on their way to the Lonely Mountain. My mom used to have mini garden gnomes and plastic frogs in and around the garden, but I think time and the elements got to them. I think my strong Dwarves will fare better:

Modern Flower Child

When art meets nature… We are left with the most amazing jewellery crafted by Modern Flower Child.

Bracelet

All items are hand-made. Every piece of jewellery is unique since no two flowers/natural items will ever look the same or set the same when left to harden in the resin:

I really want a bark or fern item, it preserves the natural beauty perfectly, and hopefully indefinitely. If you wish to get your hands on this cool jewellery, you can make a fashion statement by buying some at Modern Flower Child.

Brave Surfers

Who doesn’t love a day at the beach? I love swimming and sunshine, but the ocean houses some weird and dangerous creatures. Here are some terrifying creatures known to have attacked (and possibly killed) people in the water:

1. Box Jellyfish:

There are many sub-species of this jellyfish. Some are so small (pinkie sized) and colourless that they can be difficult to detect. You can die in 3 minutes from it’s sting. It induces paralysis and heart failure. Australia, the Philippines and Hawaii are just some locations where they float:

2. Sharks:

The Tiger shark and Great White probably top this group. Great White’s can be found in cold or temperate waters, and the Tiger shark in temperate or tropical waters. Surfers are often mistaken to be seals; and are therefore attacked:

3. Stonefish:

You cant tread water forever; and when you put your feet down there may be a surprise waiting for you. The Stonefish is a master of camouflage; and can mostly be found in Pacific waters. It carries a neurotoxin in its dorsal fins:

I have been stung by ordinary blue-bottles and jellyfish along the Durban coast in South Africa. It did burn for a few hours and left red raised line marks for a few days. Anyone else been attacked/ bitten by a creature?

Superimpose Saturday #12

Japan has designed an underwater city! Over-population will be a problem in the near future; and if we can no longer build up; then we must build under:

Would you be concerned living in a city under the sea? I would love to visit an under-water city, but with Japan being in the earthquake/tsunami zone; i’m not sure that my stay would be permanent:

Inner Atrium and Promenade

I’m sure the above design was inspired by some of our favorite fantasy/sci-fi water cities. Here are my top 3:

1. Rapture:

Thank you Andrew Ryan for this architectural masterpiece:

2. Otoh Gunga:

On the planet of Naboo the Gungans have some sophisticated bubble buildings:

This magical kingdom can be found beneath the Atlantic Ocean. You’d need gills to live there, but hey πŸ™‚

A New View of the Sun

I am one of those silly people who sometimes looks at the Sun. I know it’s bad; i don’t stare for long. It just has to do with my fixation of space. Here are some new beautiful images of our Sun taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory:

Evil Mario

Check out evil Mario kicking this turtle in the head! Sure; if the turtle was a Koopa then we’d let this one slide, but this turtle is not a Koopa Troop:

Has evil Mario gone mad? Perhaps he doesn’t want to take any chances. I guess this turtle is trying to escape – Mario is probably trying to keep him safe in the enclosure. Here is a link to a Mario YouTube video; where i successfully avoid a Koopa turtle; just to walk off a cliff: Mario Koopa

Speaking of being evil; my computer is holding me under duress and is asking me to ‘kill’ things:
