Thinking outside the box
 
Now I've (not) seen everything - an invisible cycling helmet 
Really hope these 2 become millionaires off the back of it.

Goat tree
 
Found mostly in Morocco, tree climbing goats love the olive-like fruit of the Argan tree.
Farmers have followed the goats from tree to tree for hundreds of years, collecting the indigestible nuts that the goats excrete, to make oil. 
A bit of a shitty story, but I know you G+ sciencey types can handle it :-)

I've knocked this one off the list already ;-)
 
Preikestolen or Prekestolen, also known by the English translations of Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local nameHyvlatonnå (“the carpenter-plane’s blade”), is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, in Forsand,Ryfylke, Norway. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet), almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway.
The tourism at the site has been increasing, around 2012, the plateau was each year visited by between 150,000 and 200,000 people[1] who took the 3.8 km (2.4 mi.) hike to Preikestolen, making it one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in Norway.

#ScienceSunday  

The Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan

This is one of the best speeches ever given. It speaks to importance of understanding, communication, and tolerance, and how important it is that we work towards cross cultural understanding, scientific knowledge, and peace. If you like it and its message, reshare. 



Edit: I posted this before the recent shooting at the Sikh  #Templeshooting  in Wisconsin today- it was sheer coincidence, but it highlights the point.

"Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light."
