Trolling -- level cloud!

I never knew trolling is the cause of rain. Well, you live and learn, even from trolls.

Ah! One good thing about hangover!

At least she has found a way to make good use of his sleeping (hangover?) dad. After all, he could well do with some added colours to match his underwear.

Unbelievable: bird imitates the sound of chainsaws, car alarm, and camera shutter

David Attenborough comes across an amazing lyre bird, which mimics the calls of other birds as well as  the sounds of various man made noises in the forest including camera shutters, car alarms, and chainsaws.

The video is a taken from The Life of Birds. Indeed, this clever bird is one of the most impressive and funny creatures in nature.


How sharp is your brain? 10 brainteaser questions for you

Are you mentally sharp? Here are ten brainteaser questions for you to test your mental acuity. You can also have the answers at the end, but no peeking at the answers now! Promise?

1. Johnny’s mother had three children. The first child was named April. The second child was named May. What was the third child’s name?

2. A clerk at a butcher shop stands five feet ten inches tall and wears size 13 sneakers. What does he weigh?

3. Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?

4. How much dirt is there in a hole that measures two feet by three feet by four feet?

5. What word in the English language is always spelled incorrectly?

6. Billie was born on December 28th, yet her birthday always falls in the summer. How is this possible?

7. In British Columbia you cannot take a picture of a man with a wooden leg. Why not?

8. If you were running a race and you passed the person in 2nd place, what place would you be in now?

9. Which is correct to say, “The yolk of the egg is white” or “The yolk of the egg are white?”

10. A farmer has five haystacks in one field and four haystacks in another. How many haystacks would he have if he combined them all in one field?


1. Johnny.
2. Meat.
3. Mt. Everest. It just wasn’t discovered yet.
4. There is no dirt in a hole.
5. Incorrectly (except when it is spelled incorrecktly).
6. Billie lives in the southern hemisphere.
7. You can’t take a picture with a wooden leg. You need a camera (or iPad or cell phone) to take a picture.
8. You would be in 2nd place. You passed the person in second place, not first.
9. Neither. Egg yolks are yellow.
10. One. If he combines all his haystacks, they all become one big stack.

Interesting trick: Are you left-eyed or right-eyed?

Yes, it's true: we all have a dominant eye. Now, whether you are a photographer or not it is good to find which eye is the dominant one, that is the eye we prefer to see with or we use it as the main channel of seeing. Educational and amusing at the same time.

There are two ways to do this.

1. Extend your arms straight out and form a triangle with your hands. Looking through the triangle with both eyes open, frame something nearby (like a doorknob) and place it in the centre of the triangle. Then close your eyes one at a time without moving the triangle — your dominant eye is the one that placed the object in the centre. The eye which doesn't see the object in the centre is not your dominant eye.

2. Make a hole with your hands while your arms are stretched in front of you. Place an object in the middle of the hole and now move your hands slowly towards your face. Soon you will find that the hole you made is in front of your dominant eye.
