Nuclear Testing Sites Around the World and Their Dangers

North Korea has announced their 3rd nuclear test which is aimed at the United States. Yea this seems like pretty serious news, but our leaders don’t seem too concerned. I’m pretty sure that if North Korea ever tried to send a nuke our way, we would immediately shoot it out of the sky and send 20 of them back in their direction. I’m not an expert on this stuff, but I don’t see North Korea attempting to blow us up any time soon. They know how terrible that decision would turn out for them.

But to hear that our enemy is testing their nuclear weapons could be very scary to some people and that is very understandable. Countries have been testing nuclear weapons since the 1940s, and no one has yet to attempt a nuclear strike anywhere remotely close to us. People should be more concerned about the environmental/health problems caused by the testing rather than actually getting bombed.

The Root of The Solution

Bridge building is an arduous endeavor, one which takes a toll on both people and our planet.  Electricity is used, pollutants are emitted and bodies are broken down by manual labor.  But what if a bridge could be grown? What if a bridge could breath?

Real Life Zombies: The Walking Dead of Toraja

“Real zombies? no way..”

That is exactly what I said when I first was introduced to the walking dead people of Toraja, Indonesia.

Certain Villagers in Toraja have the ability to raise the dead with a specific ritual that they use during the funeral process. I know this sounds crazy, but it has been a part of their culture for thousands of years.

Strange Place: A Beautifully Fake Beach in Japan

Seagaia Ocean Dome is the largest artificial beach in the world.

It is a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort in Mayazaki, Japan. The artificial beach is about 300 meters long and 100 meters wide, allowing an estimated 10,000 tourists to fit comfortably in it all at once.

One of the main attractions is its fake flame-spitting volcano, which becomes active every 15 minutes and spits fire every hour. This helps make the artificial waves more powerful for the surfers’ that visit the beach. Obviously, the sand is artificial along with the palm trees, and the retractable roof (largest in the world) has a permanent blue sky. This allows people to go to the beach even on the ugliest days.

These pictures will make any viewer want to visit:
