There's no forgetting where you are when you visit this climbing wall—because the place name is spelt out in giant letter along its 40-meter length.
Here's a fun little Google Maps easter egg: ask for directions from Snowdon to the Brecon Beacons in Wales, and it'll estimate travel time by car, bus, foot, plane, bicycle, or... dragon! The journey takes 21 minutes by the country's national emblem apparently, compared to 3 hours 20 minutes by car. [The Next Web]
Marijuna farmers tried it with bears, and now a parks and recreation department in Wales wants to do it with bees: critters as cheap security.
Remember that time you carried that box home and it was like sooo heavy? Yeah, shut up. The quarry where some of Stonehenge's original rocks came from has been discovered, and the people of 5,000 years ago dragged them 160 miles.
