Layers of lenticular clouds... Too beautiful to be true? You bet.

Lens-shaped, or lenticular, clouds are created by what's known as "orographic lift," as air moves in a wave-like motion over a land mass. They're often so unusual and symmetrically shaped that people can mistake them for UFOs.

But there's a photo making its way around the Net (top image) with a series of layered lenticular clouds over Mt. Fujiyama that looks too unusual to be true. And, according to NewsObserver, it is. Someone reportedly got creative with Photoshop, taking what was already an amazing (bottom image, apparently public-domain) shot, and took it a little over the top. Sure, lenticular clouds near Mt. Fuji can come in layers ( http://goo.gl/gYfVMi ); it's this one that NewsObserver says is faked.

So what did we learn? Nature is plenty cool enough on its own - and you should always check out the sources of pictures and images you see to make sure they're factual. As the second President of the U.S., John Adams, once said, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”

(FYI, here's a NOAA schematic showing how lenticular clouds appear. http://goo.gl/ZLql13 )

CubeStormer II

Is a robot which set a Guinness World Record of 5.270 s for the fastest robot solving a Rubik's Cube on 11th Nov 2011 .The CubeStormer II is built from four Lego Mindstorm NXT kits, which are controlled by a custom-made Android app running on a Samsung Galaxy S II. The bot takes a photo of each side, then computes the most efficient way to rotate to the parts so that each side shows just one colour. The project was commissioned by ARM Holdings and designed and built by Mike Dobson and David Gilday.The official human fastest time is 5.66 s

天下無敵的「大同電鍋」故障了!!! 家裡的電鍋前幾天故障了,雖然電源燈有亮,但是卻無法加熱煮飯。 想說既然電源燈還有亮,也用了才3年多,上網查看看怎麼修好了。 通常大同電鍋故障的狀況有三: 1、
