This reminds me of when i was visiting the Colca Canyon in Peru, our coach driver executed a 3 point turn on a narrow mountain road similar to the one below, at one point, as i was sat at the back, i was looking out of the window and the 1000 ft drop directly beneath me, as the rear axle sat about 10ft back from the rear of the coach.
I just read an article about the messaging app 'Signal' and i cant believe the boss of the companies name is Moxie Marlinspike, someone tell me this is made up!
When my friend and I visited Ireland, we decided on our first day to drive around the the Dingle Peninsula rather than the recommended - and larger - Ring of Kerry due to the weather. Part of the trip was much like the roads in these pictures. At one point we approached a huge rent in the side of the mountain, as if Godzilla had scraped his claw against it. As we drove closer we saw that water was trickling down this opening, across the VERY narrow road - making it look weak and fragmented where the water flowed through cracks - and down on the other side. We crept over the cracked road and continued on our way, assuming this was fairly recent damage that needed to be addressed. A week later, discussing the incident with our b&b hostess in Cork, she said it was always like that, and she once had to back up at that point because a bus was coming the other way.This reminds me of when i was visiting the Colca Canyon in Peru, our coach driver executed a 3 point turn on a narrow mountain road similar to the one below, at one point, as i was sat at the back, i was looking out of the window and the 1000 ft drop directly beneath me, as the rear axle sat about 10ft back from the rear of the coach.

One New Hampshire family’s gender reveal party was such a blast that it rattled towns, set off reports of an earthquake, and could be heard from across the state line ...
Police in Kingston, a town not far from the Massachusetts border, received reports of a loud explosion Tuesday evening. They responded to Torromeo quarry where they found people who acknowledged holding a gender reveal party with explosives.
The source was Tannerite — 80 pounds (36 kilograms) of it, police said. The family thought the quarry would be the safest spot to blow up the explosive, which is typically sold over the counter as a target for firearms practice ...
Nearby residents said the blast rocked their homes. Some reported property damage ...
“We heard this god-awful blast,” Sara Taglieri, who lives in a home that abuts the quarry, told the television station. “It knocked pictures off our walls ... I’m all up for silliness and what not, but that was extreme.”
Taglieri’s husband, Matt, told the TV station that neighbors reported cracks in the foundation of their homes.
No injuries were reported, police said. ...
Here's a gender reveal blast that didn't kill anyone (for once ... ), but rattled multiple towns and caused property damage at a distance.
That is a serious amount of explosive. Highly irresponsible.UPDATE: Kingston police say approx. 80 pounds of Tannerite were used at that gender reveal party that caused a massive explosion that shook homes for miles. Man who detonated it has turned himself in to police and is cooperating. Police haven’t decided on charges. @UnionLeader
I had to look this up. So you have a party to celebrate the sex of your unborn child (although presumably it will still have one even if you don’t have a party) and you try and kill as many people as possible???? Or have I misunderstood?That is a serious amount of explosive. Highly irresponsible.
At one point a storm blew the Aman off its anchorage and it drifted five miles eventually running aground near the shoreline.
Desperate for supplies, Mohammed said he was then able to swim ashore every few days, buy food and recharge his phone.
The nightmare began in 2017 when the Aman was stopped at the Egyptian port of Adabiya due to its expired certificates and safety equipment.
But the ship's Lebanese contractors failed to pay for fuel and its owners in Bahrain were in financial difficulty so it was held indefinitely.
With the captain already ashore and the other crewmates quickly leaving, a local court declared Mohammed, the ship's chief officer, its legal guardian.
He says he was never told what the order meant and only discovered months later that he would be forced to stay on board while it moored near the southern entrance of the Suez Canal.
Mohammed is set to finally reunite with his family after flying to his home in Syria on Friday. He is determined to return to the job he loves and harbours a dream of one day becoming a captain.
“I am a chief mate and I was one step away from being a captain,” he said.
Some would say ‘every time he opens his mouth’.The tech world is going W T F .
