I do not know about anyone else but I, for one, love nature. No, no — I don’t like delving in nature (e.g. camping? yeah right) but I do enjoy the natural beauty of nature (see what I did there?). The following photo is one such example; check it out:[...]Read More »
Volcano eruptions are not very fun for the people who live nearby — having to evacuate, property damage (destruction), death in some cases, etc. However, volcano eruptions from space look, to put it simply, awesome.

As I am sure many dotTechies already know, NASA has terminated its Space Shuttle program in favor of helping fostering the commercial (private) sector fill the gap… and so NASA can save money (which hopefully will be put towards other cutting-edge research).
The following photo is a long-exposure taken of [...]Read More »
I am very much a left-brained person, meaning I lack creativity. Sometimes I wish I was more right-brained so I could come up with awesome projects like the following.
The following is a long-exposure photo of a man who “ran around a cemetery like a ghost covered by a sheet [...]Read More »
How many dotTechies have lived, or live, in an area that receives regular snow? If you have, or do, then you probably have played in the snow… including pelting others (friends, family, neighbors, the ice cream truck, etc.) with snowballs.

Dubai is known in some circle as the Las Vegas of the Middle East. Why? I am not completely sure but probably because of how many tourists visit the city every year. It definitely isn’t because of similar terrain.
In any case, we have shared photos of Dubai in the [...]Read More »
‘Clouded leopards’ look awesome, regardless of if you like big cats or not [Amazing Photo of the Day]
In the past I have been (playfully) accused of being overly obsessive with big cats. I denied it and, to prove my innocence, I stopped posting about big cats for a while. You know, like five days. Maybe.
Oh screw it. I’m lying. I didn’t actually purposefully stop posting about [...]Read More »
Maybe I am the oddball here (okay, I am most definitely the oddball here) but I never, ever learned how to build a snowman. To this day I don’t know how to build a snowman. And it isn’t because I have never lived in places where it snows. I just [...]Read More »

Okay, before I share today’s find with you, let me say that, when I first came across this, I was astonished and swore it was some sort of photoshopped trick. However, the Pacific barreleye fish is real and it really has a transparent head. Here is how National Geographic describes [...]Read More »

Aside from French kissing, french fries, and french toast (which, by the way, the latter two are not French), what are the French known for? *Controls urge to make racist (?)
