Vantablack Is The Darkest Material Known To Man, And It’s Pretty Trippy

Blog
What some people don't realize is just how amazing the breakthroughs of modern technology really are. This could have something to do with the fact that many groundbreaking inventions and discoveries seem too far-fetched to be real.An excellent example of this phenomenon is known as Vantablack, and it's listed by The Guinness Book of World Records as being the world's darkest substance. This is Vantablack in all its glory. When it was introduced, the company that manufactured it from tiny carbon nanotubes reported that Vantablack can absorb up to 99.96 percent of the light that contacts the material. Wikipedia I know that sounds fantastical, but after seeing a few videos of Vantablack in action, I definitely believe those claims. The ma...
7 Lesser-Known Serial Killers We Should All Learn More About

7 Lesser-Known Serial Killers We Should All Learn More About

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Like many people, I have always been deeply fascinated by serial killers. Before you take that the wrong way, let me explain. I don't mean to say that I idolize serial killers or condone their actions in any way. The heinous crimes they commit disgust me as much as the next person. However, I do think there is a lot to gain by studying the darkest side of humanity. Taking another human's life is the most unnatural thing a person can do, yet it comes as second nature to serial killers. Why? The answer is unclear, but must lie somewhere in the lives and minds of the murderers themselves. Killers like Jack the Ripper, Ed Gein, and Jeffrey Dahmer have been discussed for year...

For many artists, the process of creating a piece is even more important than the finished product. While that may seem strange to the average observer, anyone with a background in art can tell you that watching a piece come to life is often more fulfilling than seeing the culmination of their efforts.That's why it's a privilege to see art in action. One illustrator named Jake Lockett recently created an incredibly intricate woodland scene, and he was kind enough to let us watch it evolve into something extraordinary. It all starts with a sketch.

The Zodiac Killer is at the center of one of the most famous unsolved serial killing cases of all time. In taunting letters to newspapers, the Zodiac Killer claimed he had taken 37 victims, but throughout the 50 years of investigation, police have only been able to identify seven with more suspected. He operated in the late 1960s and early 1970s and he sent cryptograms along with his notes, only one of which has ever been cracked.The whole case is shrouded in mystery and there are all kinds of conspiracy theories out there about who the killer was and how he could be caught even today.

This Poor Fish Managed To Survive For 6 Months With Only Half Its Body

Fish are a lot more resilient than you might think. Of course, the resiliency of fish isn't something most people think about anyway...at least not until they're confronted by a fish that literally survived being cut in half for more than six months. Yes, I know that sounds insane, but it's exactly what happened to this poor fish in Thailand. In the video below, you can see the fish still bobbing around like nothing's wrong. It's equal parts heartbreaking and fascinating. (source: matichon tv)That poor fish. I'm not sure why they didn't just put it out of its misery. I can't imagine that life is very much fun for a fish missing half of its torso.Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/half-fish/

Fact: The Bible is best-selling book of all time. It's also probably the most hotly debated book ever. It has changed the lives of so many people and continues to shape the world in ways that we can't even fathom.

Of course, her original chick will always be missed, but sometimes a distraction is exactly what a kid needs to get over a broken heart.
