The Beauty of Hawaiian Waves
Each wave is a work of art, varying in shape and color. The breath-taking images show the split-second in which each one breaks and crashes on to the sand, and are the work of two keen photographers who wish to remind people just how beautiful Mother Nature can be.
Photographers and friends Nick Selway, 29, and CJ Kale, 36, position themselves in the magnificent Hawaiian water - and then wait for the waves to crash into their heads.

This is awesome
It’s obviously Batman.

Batman will always win.
This is especially hilarious to me, and will likely be funny to anyone who watched me debate this very question with John Rogers and Yuri Lowenthal.
Manos: The Hands of Fate is one of the worst movies of all time, but it’s probably the best movie ever made on a bet by a fertilizer salesman. Most people know it because it was rightfully skewered by Mystery Science Theater 3000. Well, puppeteer extraordinaire Rachel Jackson has taken an absolutely dire movie and turned it into an amazing musical puppet show called Manos: The Hands of Felt. Here is her explanation as to how it happened:
It started as a joke. Late in November of 2010, I was riffing on the topic of “puppetizing” various existing shows. I looked down, saw my copy of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 The Essentials and blurted “MANOS - The Hands of FELT”!
I had no idea what I had started.
The next day, I got a vision of The Master as a ping pong eyed, Muppet-style puppet. Then I realized the wife fight could mash-up with The Ballroom sketch from The Muppet Show in a ridiculously satisfying way. Basically the idea took hold of my brain and refused to let go.
Talking to my bandmate Michael about the project, he pointed out that I was going on just as much about the story behind MANOS - The Hands of Fate as I was about the movie itself. Maybe I should try to work some of that into the story, instead of just doing a straight-up puppet adaptation.
It has already had a run in Seattle and we were lucky enough to catch it so we can attest to its awesomeness, but what about the rest of the world? How will you see Manos: The Hands of Felt?
Well, Rachel has started a Kickstarter to release a DVD of the show.
We are asking you to pledge for selfish reasons. We want to own that DVD! For just $5 you’ll get a digital download and for $30 a DVD of your very own.
A dirty thunderstorm (also, Volcanic lightning) is a weather phenomenon that occurs when lightning is produced in a volcanic plume. A study in the journal Science indicated that electrical charges are generated when rock fragments, ash, and ice particles in a volcanic plume collide and produce static charges, just as ice particles collide in regular thunderstorms.
Bad ass, Nature. Bad ass.
