Ah, the feelgood music of our grandparents. Too few of these kind of songs today, originally by Joni Mitchell but I grew up with this version

You can explore each site using Street View, and watch related videos or browse photos and 3D models for more information.

Start exploring the World Wonders Project now: goo.gl/gK74h and share your favorite places you’ve visited using the hashtag #worldwonders.

Hver segir að skák sé ekki spennandi!
 
I haven't played chess in a while now, but if you know the rules to the game you owe it to yourself to watch this 1994 Smirin vs Anand blitz masterpiece.

No joke, I was getting physically anxious for a while there (you'll understand when you get see it). And I may or may not have fist pumped at the end. Watch and see.

(Muppets + Popcorn) = [Sheer Awesomeness!]

I've shared clips of the The Muppets before.

I've shared the Popcorn song before.

Now, thanks to +Michael Andersson, I bring you the perfect combination of the two!

Not only is it St. George's Day, it's also the 30th anniversary of the ZX Spectrum, an 8-bit personal computer released in the U.K. in 1982. Geeks that we are, the doodle team decided to create a doodle to mark both occasions. You can see it below (and on google.co.uk for a few more hours).

The ZX Spectrum used only a 15-color palette, with no more than two colors (or any light/dark hue pairs) in any 8-pixel square, so our 256x192-pixel doodle adheres to those constraints. How do we know for sure? A UX designer working with the doodles team wrote a program to validate that the doodle was complying with the rules. It took a surprising 29 revisions to get it right!

Ever just wanted to get away from it all?!

This Icelandic home owner seems to have taken ‘getting away from it’ to a whole other level!

Entering the Enchanted Realm by Christian Klepp

This image is from the 12 day winter tour around Iceland. Entering the deep blue of this 50 m (164 ft) long, 10 m (33 ft) wide and 1.8 m (6 ft) high ice cave on the frozen lagoon of the Svinafellsjokull glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland caused an awe-inspiring atmosphere. This up to 1000 years old snow has metamorphosed into highly pressurized glacier ice that contains almost no air bubbles. Thus it absorbs the visible light despite the scattered shortest blue fraction, giving it its distinct deep blue waved appearance. This cavity in the glacier ice formed as a result of a glacial mill, or moulin. Rain and meltwater on the glacier surface is channeled into streams that enter the glacier at crevices. The waterfall melts a hole into the glacier while the ponded water drains towards lower elevations by forming long ice caves with an outlet at the terminus of the glacier. The fine grained sediments in the water along with wind blown sediments cause the frozen meltwater stream to appear in a muddy colour while the top of the cave exhibits the deep blue colour. Due to the fast movement of the glacier of about 1 m per day over uneven terrain this ice cave cracked up at its end into a deep vertical crevice, called cerrac. This causes the indirect daylight to enter the ice cave from both ends resulting in homogeneous lighting of the ice tunnel.
