No one should be immune from criticism. Not even the great masters of the art world–they’re humans just like the rest of us. So please indulge us while we take a look at lauded works of genius created by artists far, far more talented than we are, and laugh at them.

When mother nature is mad this is what it looks like. I can totally relate to how the old Vikings had a God (Thor) for this incredible phenomenon. Yet again, the photographer Mike Hollingshead (who runs the extremeinstability.com website) provides us with insane photographs.
From the discharge of atmospheric electricity (lightning), a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 220,000 km/h (140,000 mph), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F).
How lightning initially forms is still a matter of debate. Scientists have studied root causes ranging from atmospheric perturbations (wind, humidity, friction, and atmospheric pressure) to the impact of solar wind and accumulation of charged solar particles.
The irrational fear of lightning (and thunder) is astraphobia.

Recently in Moscow special pathe for the blind began to appear almost everywhere on the sidewalks, in front of the crossroads, in the yards, etc. All this is supposedly dictated by concern for the partially sighted or blind people (at least in the world these paths are made specifically for this). But there is one significant difference. In our country tese paths are more like mokery. This is how they look in Tokyo, 2008 and in Moscow, 2011.Read more: Special Paths For The Blind And Visually Impaired (20 pics)
