The World s 18 Strangest Pools Intercontinental Hotel Hong Kong The Intercontinental Hotel in Hong Kong has lavish amenities and the skyline to back it up. And the cherry on top is a set of three pools that sit atop its third-floor spa deck, overlooking Victoria Harbor. With the three pools set to different temperatures—cold, warm and hot—visitors can choose the water that’s just right as they enjoy the closeup view of the Hong Kong skyline. Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa Grindavik, Iceland Blue Lagoon is one of the most famous spots on an island known for its gorgeous and mystical geothermal features.

Golden Nugget Las Vegas, Nevada The Golden Nugget casino’s pool may take top honors as the scariest of the strange pools; it gives you the feeling of swimming with the sharks, without actually swimming next to them.

DaylightMap DaylightMap shows the pattern of night and day on a Google map, for any area of the Earth, for any date and time. The night-side satellite view includes city lights as seen from orbit. It also allows you to select up to ten locations on the map; in addition to seeing at a glance whether it's daytime there, you can show their local time, sunrise and and sunset times, and length of day. This particular DaylightMap is highlighting times for . More Information Mobile phones running the Android operating system - the Droid, Galaxy, Nexus, Xperia, and more - can now have DaylightMap on board. There's also a near-real-time view of global cloud cover available, updated every hour from weather satellite imagery. In addition, I've packaged the DaylightMap + Clouds functionality as an iGoogle Theme , meaning you can now wrap your whole Google home page in a DaylightMap. Or, in the best mashup tradition, you can put DaylightMap and Clouds on your own website if you'd like.

Math for the Fast Lane This is why math is taught in school. I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive onto the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and "flipped" the woman off. "Man, that guy is stupid," I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner whenever a female does anything to me in traffic, and here's why.......... I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper to bumper, figure I pass at least another 4000 cars. Statistically, half of these are driven by females. That's 18,000 women drivers! According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all females have seriously considered suicide or homicide. And 34% describe men as their biggest problem. According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry weapons, and this number is increasing. Flip one off?
