imgfave - amazing and inspiring images Run For Your Lives - 5K Zombie Obstacle Race If you’re a big fan of zombie movies and video games, and always wanted to experience a zombie apocalypse in real life, this is your big chance. Run For Your Lives is a unique 5k obstacle course race where contenders have to get passed man-made and natural obstacles while chased by brain-eating zombies. This sounds like one of my biggest nightmares, and after seeing the presentation video, I’m definitely not signing up. The people behind the Run For Your Lives race wanted to reassure participants the zombies are all fed before the race and trained to go only after the health flags, so no direct physical contact between zombies and humans will be allowed. Run For Your Lives will be held this October, in Baltimore, and if it proves successful you might see it in other parts of the country, as well. via Geekologie Reddit Stumble

Artist Captures The Ruins Of Stars Wars There's something captivating about the futuristic structures that provide the backdrops for George Lucas's iconic Star Wars series. Like the plot's settings, the buildings and locations seen in the movies look like they are from a completely different galaxy. While that galaxy is repeatedly described as "far, far away," who knew that these buildings, such as Luke Skywalker's home, could be found here on Earth? When shooting for the original Star Wars trilogy finished, Lucas and his crew left the dome shell of Skywalker's abode to decay in its desert setting, the mysterious location only known to a few people. Add To Collection Save this image to a collection No More Stars (Star Wars) Photographed in two series, No More Stars (Star Wars) and EVERY WORLD’S A STAGE, the images take on an appearance of decaying archaeological ruins.
