A select group of Guanche women at the Canary Island of Tenerife who sacrificed themselves by jumping from a towering cliff into the sea. This act was meant to propitiate the sea-god and prevent him from sinking their island, as long ago happened to an ancestral kingdom. The ritual deaths of these virgins was an apparent recollection of and response to the destruction of Atlantis, which occurred approximately 600 miles north of Tenerife. Harimagadas translates from Old High German as “Holy Maidens”.

The thickness of the ice at the North Pole obviously varies. What it can be said though is that it has been measured to a depth of 1.6 kilometers (about 1 mile).
Here’s an image of a one dollar bill we got in the e-mail from one of our readers. This image of an obviously fake (but funny) one dollar bill is related to the continuing fall of the US dollar weight on the markets.Have a laugh!

A cat will rub her head or the side of her chin against your leg or any object, furniture, or wall to deposit her scent on them as part of her territorial marking. She uses her glands on her forehead and around his mouth and chin. These glands produce chemicals called pheromones, which she transfers by rubbing against objects.If you see a cat sniffing intensly then she is trying to determine if the scent was produce by another feline or animal and if she needs to watch out if that animal might still be around.So if she is marking her territory on your leg…does that mean she thinks she owns you?P.S. Sometimes they rub against something just to scratch the side of their chin or to groom or get rid of falling hair.
The Sasquatch is a hairy wild man or animal said to inhabit remote forested places like the interior of British Columbia. It is all just a myth, similar to the Big Foot.

If you are seeing this lady spinning clockwise, then it means you are using the right side of the brain. If you are seeing her spinning counter-clockwise, then you are using the left side of the brain.
Some people are able to see her spinning in both directions, but most of them see her rotating only in one. If you can see her spin in one directions and then make her spin in the other, then you are a part of a handful of people.Even if it might not seem so, both directions can be seen. Apparently, this fact has been proved at the Yale University, USA, after 5 years of studying the human brain and its functions. Supposedly only 14% of the US population can see her spinning in both directions.Note: I saw her go counter-clockwise, but then if I only looked at her feet, she started to spin clockwise. It took a bit longer afterwards to make her go counter-clockwise again. I have noticed that the illusion is caused by the perception of the viewer as he or she interprets the ambiguous frames where the spinning dancer’s body (legs and arms) cross over each other.Don’t forget to share your experience with us and tell us which way you saw her go.Need help to see her go the other way? Check out the help lady spin post.
I am sure you have heard about the SECRET. Using this secret can give you everything you want in your life. It can provide you more money, a better house, a better business, a better family life or that special someone that you are searching for. The idea behind the SECRET is the universal principle “law of attraction”. You attract what you think of and what you want. If you are broke right now is because you are thinking about it, you are letting your worries get to you. Isn’t it true that when you wake up on the “wrong side of the bed” everything seems to be going bad for you that day? That is because bad things attract other bad things. If you are in a bad relationship, it is because of your thinking, if you are having a bad job it is also because of your thinking. Now you need to learn how to make this law of attraction work out for you. You can find out how to get everything you want in life by clicking the link belowhttp://www.prosperable.comCreate the life you always wanted!
I bet most of you haven’t heard of the Southern Ocean. Well, that’s another name for what you might know as the Antarctic Ocean. Until 8 years ago, the Antarctic Ocean was considered to be a part of the other main oceans, as it was actually formed from parts of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. In the year 2000, however, it was officially named the Southern Ocean.
If you love pranks, then here’s how you can wake up somebody: by making loud noises. If you see someone lying around your house in a deep, peaceful sleep just grab something noisy and use it to wake them up.Watch this video compilation on how some people pulled this prank:
There are SIX time zones in Canada, at the usual one-hour intervals, except for Newfoundland Time which is thirty minutes ahead of Atlantic Time (I’ve always wondered how can you live in a place that is only 30 minutes ahead or behind others – the calculations could get confusing).The Newfoundland Time is not used in Labrador, only on the island of Newfoundland. Except for Saskatchewan, which is always on Standard Time, all areas of Canada observe Daylight Saving Time, moving clocks ahead by one hour for the summer.
The Mackenzie River is the second longest river in North America. The first longest is the well known Mississippi River.
Apparently the competition for state schools (at least the acceptable ones) is very high in Spain.So what does have to do with the kids’ parents?Well, if a kid is living with a single parent he/she gets more points on the school’s application. That is why some parents are faking their divorces in order to increase the chances for their kid’s admission.Imagine that! Parents are actually divorcing (even if they still love each other) and one of them is even moving out of the house. All this for their kid. Would you divorce in order to help your kid like that?

I think you all remember the illusion with the girl spinning counter clockwise or clockwise. Most of the readers were able to see her spin in both directions. Lots of methods were being shared, but still there were a couple that were unable to see her go both ways.Well, if you can’t see her spin the other way, then these two images will help you.Helpful lines were added to these images in order get rid of the illusion and only see her spin one way or another. Therefore, if you can only see her spin clockwise, look at the counter clockwise picture and after 5 seconds look at the original. You will now see her spin ccw.Here you can see the original lady spin illusion.1. Lady spins Clockwise: (See the original lady spin illusion)2. Lady spins Counter clockwise: (See the original lady spin illusion)Let me know if this helped.
Yesterday morning we received this link from one of our readers. It brought us the image you see on the left hand side. It’s a sort of a google map that you can pan and zoom that is initially concentrated on an empty field. A few seconds later, the crop circles appear. We really appreciate the thought and the time he put into this and we want to thank him.We took a look at the website this image is hosted on and we found out that anyone can create their own personalized crop circles. Just fill in the text, choose the symbols and in a couple of easy steps you will have a cool link to send to your friends.Watch out for the flying saucer.P.S. Thank you Benjamin.
A jinni is a spirit in the Arabic and Muslim demonology. It is capable of assuming human or animal form and exercising supernatural influence over people for good or ill. The jinn (which is the plural for jinni) were popular in the Middle Eastern literature, as in the stories in “A Thousand and One Nights”. This is from where Disney probably got their inspiration when they created the famous cartoon, Aladdin.Note: The jinn make many appearances in the Koran.
I’m sure everyone heard of the dÃ©jÃ vu, many of us even experienced it. Well, jamais vu is the contrary of dÃ©jÃ vu. In jamais vu, an experience feels like it’s the first time, even though the experience is a familiar one. Jamais vu occurs in certain types of amnesia and epilepsy.

Check out this kid. It’s simply amazing. Have you seen anyone skate as low as that? This short clip culminates with her clearing a height of 30 cm (11.8 in) for a whooping 60 m (236.2 in). You have to see it to believe it.
