Scared of heights? Cant swim? You might wanna skip staying at this hotel.
The Marina Bay Sands in Singapore is the world’s most expensive hotel and features the world’s largest outdoor pool on its 55th floor.
The infinity pool on the roof is in the ‘SkyPark’ which spans the three towers of the hotel. The platform itself is longer than the Eiffel tower laid down!
Infinity pools give the effect that the water extends to the horizon. In reality, the water spills over the edge into a catchment below, and is then pumped back into the pool. The pools have two circulation systems. The first functions like that of a regular pool, filtering and heating the water in the main pool. The second filters the water in the catch basin and returns it to the upper pool.
In Southern California, authorities were led to a discovery of $45 million worth of drugs in the back of a tractor-trailer, from a strong smell of marijuana! Police pulled the truck over on Wednesday morning, then opened the trailer after finding problems with the paperwork. What they disovered is what you can see in the picture below.
The “overwhelming odor” coming from the trailer equaled 20 tons of narcotics stashed in pallets. They found 38,000 pounds of marijuana, 2,700 pounds of cocaine and 67 pounds of methamphetamine. Sheriff Rod Hoops said Friday night the seizure was one of the largest in the county’s history. The driver of the truck, a 32 year old man named Fernando Luevano, was charged with possession, transportation and sale of narcotics.

A yawn may signal that a person wants to have sex, among other things.
Yesterday, at the International Conference on Yawning, scientists presented the latest theory on yawning. The new revelation is based on reports from sexologists that many of their patients yawn during sex and foreplay.
Yawning, which the average adult does five to 10 times a day, can also signal that one is tired (which you no doubt already knew) or under stress. As of now, scientists have no ability to distinguish a “let’s get it on” yawn from an “I want to catch some sleep” yawn.
Nevertheless, we’ve used this new information to reevaluate every date we’ve ever been on. It turns out we may have been much more interesting than we initially thought.

A 10.3 magnitude earthquake destroys the city and shatters your life as an ordinary citizen. As the rescue mysteriously fails to arrive, you are trapped in an environmental and social chaos that gets worse by the hour. Your only way out is to set up a massive refugee camp to hopefully attract rescue’s attention. You will need to find resources and organize survivors to create your headquarters. In the midst of Chicago’s ruins, you’ll have to both preserve and sacrifice in order to survive during 7 days. Rescue, heal, protect, kill, ambush or steal. But first, try staying alive. It could happen to you, so ask yourself: what would you do?
The city is falling apart all around you! Survive the earthquake and its aftershocks, the collapsing buildings and the devastating rifts in this never before seen hostile environment.
Make your way through social chaos. Evolve among other survivors in an urban jungle where there are no more rules and where violent groups dictate their law.
Learn to survive. Use tactics, diversion and discretion to survive against the odds.
Rescue or hunt. In this new era where everyone is for himself and where water is gold, hunt for precious resources, save people in distress and restore order to unify survivors in one base camp.
