World Wildlife Fund (#WWF) recently created this campaign reminding us of endangered wildlife. More specifically – Pandas. Can you spot the hidden panda bear somewhere inside this photo? I presume it shouldn’t be too hard. Even though the photo has obviously been manipulated to some extent, this doesn’t affect the quality of it.
I have to say I’m still under shock after reading what happened in Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut (USA). My heart is broken, and I can’t seem to understand how such horrible things are even possible. What is happening with our species?!

They remind us that we tend to take things sitting under the horizon line for granted when looking at landscapes. The Welsh […]

Essentially, it is the result of our minds taking a random image or sound and turning it in to something more significant. Some scientists, like Carl Sagan, speculate that this message is hard-wired into our […]
Perhaps you already encountered this photo before, as it became viral across the interwebs in the past few weeks. Can you explain why does the shadow of this volcano look like a triangle?
