Dutch pranksters display IKEA art in museum, fooling everyone
Art is all about context...
A team of Dutch pranksters took a cheap, mass-produced print from IKEA and displayed it in a fancy art museum, telling patrons that it was by the artist Ike Andrews (get it?). The trick fooled everyone from young punks to experienced museum-goers, one of whom described the piece as "a depiction of chaos inside [the artist's] mind." Another found the level of detail to be "unbelievable." (Mashable)

Honeyflow on tap It's the beekeepers dream...
Turn a tap and watch as pure, fresh, clean honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar.  No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment and the bees are hardly even disturbed.

Amazing skills and beautiful nature.
 
Amazing mountain biking feat!

For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.

Exploring Biblical Jordan
David Nunn explores all of Jordan's Biblical sites and recalls events which occurred on them. 
Follow the adventures of Lot, as he fled from Sodom and was sheltered in a cave; Jacob, as he wrestled with God by the river Jabbock; and Moses, as he led the great Exodus northwards from Aqaba. There's Mount Hor, where Aaron died and was buried; the plains of Moab, where Moses gave his final instructions and blessing; Beth Peor, where he pleaded to be allowed to enter the Promised Land.

The Dutch now have a wholly solar-paneled cycle path connecting two suburbs in Amsterdam – the first of its kind in the world. The SolaRoad will convert the sun’s energy into electricity for the grid.
