Rarest Orchid

Flowers are beautiful. They come in a huge array of colors and are known to brighten anyone’s day. Every girls loves receiving flowers on special occasions. You may want to consider this one to tell her I love you.

Orchids are not cheap, depending on which one you get the price range is huge, however, I never though I would find one that is at a price tag of $200,000. In 2005 a group of Chinese scientists did agricultural research to grow a very rare unique species of this beautiful flower. Not only is this flower expensive because it was man made, but also because it takes about four or five years to bloom.

p/s : Do any readers out there knew the species of orchid shown in the picture above?

He Continued Fighting WWII

Hiroo Onoda, a Japanese soldier who continued fighting World War II a full 29 years after the Japanese surrendered, because he didn’t know the war was over.

Hiroo Onoda is a Japanese citizen that originally worked at a Chinese trading company. When he was 20 years old, he was called to join the Japanese army. He promptly quit his job and headed off to training in Japan. At a certain point in his training, he was chosen to be trained at Nakano School as an Imperial Army Intelligence Officer. In this specialized military intelligence training, he was specifically taught methods of gathering intelligence and how to conduct guerrilla warfare. He was being groomed to go in behind enemy lines and be left with small pockets of soldiers to make life miserable for Japan’s enemies and gather intelligence in the process.

World Record Fire Breathing Artists

Fire breathing is the act of creating a fireball by breathing a fine mist of fuel over an open flame. Proper technique and the correct fuel create the illusion of danger to enhance the novelty of fire breathing, while reducing the risk to health and safety. When using the correct fuel, it will only light when sprayed into a fine mist increasing the surface area of the fuel so that the fuel/oxygen/heat ratio is balanced enough to cause combustion.

Stupid And Funny Boat Names

I think that a boat, however small or scruffy, should sport a dignified name. “Stars and Stripes” is a good name for an America’s Cup defender. But some of the names people saddle a poor defenseless boat with are beyond belief. Not to mention funny as hell! Besides, when you’re sinking and want the Coast Guard to come quickly, you don’t want to have to spell “Sea Weedy Pie” over the radio. In doing a bit of digging around, I found some other dumb names for a boat. Hope you have lots of fun with this.

Fish Parasite

4.3 centimeters crustacean enters the body through the gills of fish and bites into the tongue. Over time, the tongue dies out due to lack of blood, and parasite replaces it with its body. Fish can use the parasite as a common tongue with no apparently harm to itself, except for loss of tongue. This is the only known case in which the parasite replaces the body with all its features.
