Model of Herod's Temple by Alec Garrard. Alec Garrard, an 80-year-old retired farmer from Norfolk, England, has spent the last thirty years working on a 1:100 scale model of Herod’s Biblical Temple.

Model of Herod's Temple by Alec Garrard

Mr. Garrard has liked creating models all his life, but as he was getting older, he began thinking about a single big project that would see him through to the end of his life. Having always been interested in architecture and religion, the retired farmer thought to combine his two passions and create a unique scale model of Herod’s Temple. He had seen one or two other models of the structure during Biblical exhibitions, but he didn’t find them accurate enough, and he knew he could do better. The expert model-maker started working on the project when he was in his 40′s. Geoff Robinson Photography According to historical experts, the model created by Garrard is the world’s most accurate representation of how Herod’s Temple must have looked like before the Romans destroyed it 2,000 years ago.

Stop Alien Abductions. Hay-on-Wye - The Town of Books. Home to the largest secondhand bookstore in the world, Hay-on-Wye is more than just a little town on the border between England and Wales, it’s book heaven on Earth.

Hay-on-Wye - The Town of Books

The history of Hay-on-Wye as the “town of books” began on Fools’ Day of 1977, when during a bold publicity stunt, bibliophile Richard Booth announced the independence of Hay-on-Wye as a kingdom of books, with him as the monarch. Ambassadors were sent to the International Court of Justice, in Hague, and a rowing gunboat started patrolling on the river Wye. Since then, he managed to establish a healthy tourism industry based on books, and thousands of visitors come to Hay-on-Wye every year, to look for whatever books they need.

It is also denied by many researchers studying German saucers. The problem is that in the years immediately following the Second World War the earth's skies suddenly began to be populated by flying craft which did some remarkable things. They flew at unheard of speeds. The press and popular culture attributed these unusual craft to an extraterrestrial source. It seems only proper to begin searching for an explanation for field propulsion saucers with the very sources which we now know built conventional flying saucers, the Germans of the Third Reich.

Thirty-two years later we certainly know that some of these weapons did exist. F.B.I. report. German Eye Witnesses Dr. Happy Saint Math Tricks Day 2011.

Meltdown at Google Earth: New 3D function goes awry as bridges flop like Salvador Dali paintings.

Meltdown at Google Earth: New 3D function goes awry as bridges flop like Salvador Dali paintings

But these pictures are not the work of a Surrealist - they are what happened when Google tried to tinker with its images of Earth. Technicians have added elevation to the Google Earth tool but due to glitches the change had a bizarre effect on some of the world’s most famous roads and bridges. Big dipper: This stretch of California's coast road at Big Sur appears to have lost all its strength in the Google Earth image The 746ft tall Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has been made as thin as paper and stuck to the surface of the water beneath it.

In other cases, bridges no longer go over ravines - instead they roll down the sides and go along the bottom before coming back up the other cliff face. The images were created when Google tried to extrapolate 2D images on to a 3D landscape but did not get it quite right. Big dipper: The Fred G. FOTOS CURIOSAS DE COMIDA.
