Dirt Poster National Geographic photographer’s unbelievable encounter with vicious predator in Antarctica (VIDEO) by Dan Havlik posted Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 5:29 PM EDT We've posted quite a few amazing underwater photography videos here before but this story might be the most unbelievable yet. In the clip (embedded below), National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen talks about his encounter with one of Antartica's most vicious predators, the Leopard Seal. On assignment in the antarctic to photograph the Leopard Seal in its native environment, Nicklen spots a behemoth Leopard seal, which his guide says is the biggest he's ever seen. With Nicklen's hands shaking so badly he can barely hold onto his underwater rig, the seal puts its huge mouth over his entire camera and starts making "threat displays." But what happens next is what's most amazing and surprising. Check it out below.

17 Apart: How To: DIY Stump Table You guys, we made a table from a slice of tree stump, no joke! We mentioned tackling a DIY project we were pretty excited about weekend before last — well we finally got it finished and this is it. Here's the whole (very long) story of how this all came about and step by step instructions of exactly how it went down in the event you want to tackle making one of your own! We started out with a stump — obviously. What's funny about how this all came about is in how we actually found and brought the stump home. It just sat there day after day and about 2 weeks after she began seeing it she started telling me each evening how she wanted me to go get it so we could make something out of it. The stump was heavy as all get out but I was able to get it in the front seat of the car safely, buckle her in and bring her back home (please don't ask me why my shorts are riding up so high in this photo, maybe the most embarrassing shot of me on the blog to date): I sanded and sanded: What's that?

Two Cuts Transform Old Wine Bottles Into 3 Useful Objects If you are an eco-minded person, the joy of drinking wine is effectively cancelled out when you look at the pile of wasted bottles that are left over. Barcelona-based studio Lucirmás has come up with an innovative way to upcycle empty wine bottles with no waste. The Pure-Bottle is a three-part set of objects made from a single wine bottle. With two strategic cuts, one bottle becomes a spoon, a lantern and a drinking glass. The glass is sandblasted to remove any sharp edges, leaving surprisingly elegant objects that would be equally at home in a four-star restaurant or at your breakfast table. Enterprising DIYers with the right equipment could easily replicate these objects at home. Beautiful/Decay Artist & Design Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them.

A dream treehouse · Sheepy Me I've always wanted a treehouse when I was a child but living in a city made it a little difficult. Instead, we would built forts, tents or just crawl under the bed to play. It's weird right now but back then we really loved having those hideouts where nobody could find us. We could stay there for as long as we wanted. Telling horror stories and feeling like these were the safest places to be. But what happens if you're an adult and still dream of a treehouse? I did a little web research for treehouses all over the world and oh my what I found. Safe Arbor in Switzerland. Trillium. The enchanted forest. A modern, pitched roof treehouse. A treehouse morning. A dream treehouse. Those are just a few of many treehouses.
