The Underwater Painter!

It is usually a hobby which takes patience, care, and for the artist to be at their most comfortable so they can create true masterpieces. But while most painters insist that ‘you can’t rush art’, time is of the essence for these unusual artists, who paint unique pieces as underwater divers 64ft beneath the surface. The group of underwater divers from the Ukraine complete their series of drawings after plunging to the depths of the Black Sea. Although some watercolours take hours to finish, the scuba-trained artists are painting against the clock, as their diving equipment only allows them to draw for 40 minutes at a time. And time is not the only issue the artists have to deal with, as their watery surroundings change the color of their paints mid-piece.” w/ photos + video

Breakfast Egg Rolls

“I started off with three egg roll wrappers and filled them each with some scrambled eggs, shredded Cheddar cheese, some chopped up maple syrup flavored breakfast sausages and some diced red and green bell peppers. After that I wrapped each one up nice and tight and tossed them into my deep fryer. After about five minutes in 375 degree oil my egg rolls were golden brown and ready to eat! The breakfast egg rolls ended up tasting great and in the future I’d love to try experimenting with different fillings.” w/ photos

Why Fingernails Down A Blackboard Sound Awful

“Listening to the noise of fingernails down a blackboard is near-intolerable for many people. Now researchers have analyzed why it is we find the sound so awful. The researchers, from Cologne and Vienna, found that our ears may actually amplify the screeching sound. Our ears are ‘built’ to hear sounds at that frequency because it’s similar to human speech. The researchers used a test where some listeners thought they were listening to ‘difficult’ experimental music, and others were told they were listening to various horrible sounds. Nails on a blackboard ranked above sounds such as a fork scraping on a plate and squeaking polystyrene… But why… It’s time to find out.” w/ photos
