Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based illustrator Tang Yau Hoong has just released a brand new series where he pairs one of his illustrations with a famous quote. A few years ago, we discovered Hoong and we quickly became fans after we saw his ability to cleverly incorporate negative space into many of his works. As he told us then, "I enjoy making illusion art because it has the ability to mislead us. We rely on sight in our lives and yet it is so fragile that we could easily be deceived by what we see."
It's a matter of importance to me that you be lucid and aware of what your able to be since I was able to see the lack of limits I've been infinite and this is indiscriminate it isn't narcissistic, arson isn't always meant to be destructive, it's an art form
We've all dreamed of having superpowers at some point (today), but the majority of us have to accept the sobering reality that preternatural abilities simply aren't possible. That is, except for some rare cases of real, actual people with bona fide powers that defy explanation (and in some cases practical application). For instance ... #6. Ma Xiangang Is Impervious to Electric Shock Ma Xiangang is a man capable of something not many others are or would have a practical reason to be -- he can touch live wires filled with scrotum-popcorning electricity and feel no pain whatsoever.
Spectacular work, Gav! One of my favorites. I think Tim was a convenient scapegoat for a lot of people. Particularly the type of people who false flagged their way into an illegal war and slaughtered innocent civilians. The reason those in authority marginalized and disparaged the man wasn’t just about “turning people on” to psychedelic drugs, it was about encouraging people to question their worldview/cultural conditioning, empowering them to deconstruct false belief systems and think for themselves, and – along the way – promoting some of the most powerful tools possible to do so. Here’s what George Carlin said about his experience with psychedelics:

By: Ladan Lashkari A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds: "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think... "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too.
Imagine for a second that the world you live in is magic. Not your hocus-pocus, wave-your-wand-magic, but magic like the coffee tables you sit at beat with the hearts of the trees they were made from. That the coffee and beer in your mouths is feeding you life straight off the tongues of the plants they were made from.

Perhaps the most notorious suppressed invention is the General Motors EV1, subject of the 2006 documentary, Who Killed the Electric Car? The EV1 was the world's first mass-produced electric car, with 800 of them up for lease from GM in the late '90s. GM ended the EV1 line in 1999, stating that consumers weren't happy with the limited driving range of the car's batteries, making it unprofitable to continue production. Many skeptics, however, believe GM killed the EV1 under pressure from oil companies, who stand to lose the most if high-efficiency vehicles conquer the market.
