It's a morphed image of the two celebrities

I was watching "Eye of the Beholder" and did not realise that it was Ashley Judd and not Angelina Jolie who was starring in the movie until I saw her name rolling in the credits!! The resemblance is uncanny!!!

Don't you think Angelina Jolie looks like a young Ashley Judd?

Amazing Street Vendor Creates Caramel Dragon Lollipop

OMG! You really gotta watch this wow-worthy video. This has to be the coolest 'lollipop' I've ever seen.
With nothing more than just a wok of melted malt sugar and a ladle, this street vendor in China draws an incredibly detailed paper-thin dragon which he then scrapes out and mounts on a stick!

Notice the spinner with the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. The candy maker will create the animal where it lands.

W/W - Mother-in-law's Tongue


This weird plant is called Mother-in-law's tongue because of its sharp tips which are usually covered in egg shells, a common sight in many Malaysian gardens. I have often wondered about the significance of this practice but was told that it's merely for decorative purposes.
Interestingly, while googling for more info on this plant, I learned that there is also a pasta that shares the same amusing name - Lingue di Suocera which translates as Mother-in-law's tongue because of its long, twisted and sharp edges.

Bill Taylor - Whiteboard Artist


Aspiring cartoonist Bill Taylor from Durham, North Carolina uses the whiteboard in his office as a canvas to express his artistic abilities. A data manager by day, Taylor spends 2 to 5 minutes each day to complete his masterpieces that include the works of artists like Monet, Banksy, Van Gogh, etc

Each piece takes an average of about 6 weeks or more to complete

He gets a lot of people who come by just to see the progress or see what the next choice is. Says Taylor, "I do my daily chunk on it in the time it takes most people to get a cup of coffee from the break room."

Each finished piece is left for a couple of days before he erases it!
