Pissing Lenin Statue Erected In Poland

A pissing Lenin statue in Nowa Huta, Poland.
"A statue of Vladimir Lenin has returned to a Polish town which was constructed by the communists in the hope of it becoming a proletarian bastion. But instead of striking a dramatic pose designed to inspire revolution, the new Lenin statue in Nowa Huta comes bright green in colour, and depicts the revolutionary leader relieving himself, with a water feature providing the necessary effects.
Poland’s post-war communist government built the industrial town of Nowa Huta as a socialist tonic to subdue the intellectual influence of the nearby city of Krakow, and it once boasted a huge statue of the Russian leader striding down a main boulevard. To the government’s dismay, however, rather than becoming a shining example of one-party progress, Nova Huta’s workers resisted attempts to make them die-hard socialists, with some even trying to blow up the original Lenin statue in 1979."

After touring a museum, what do you think is the best gift shop souvenir to commemorate your visit? A post card? A magnet? Now the public can buy various kinds of authentic handcrafted Viking ships online through the Viking Ship Museum's webshop. Part of the facility features a workshop where modern day craftsmen use authentic ancient tools and techniques to build copies of Viking boats. The boat pictured above is actually partly made using authentic Viking tools, but modern equipment as well, so that it can be more easily mass-produced. As a result, the Trýbekkur, as it's called, will only cost you just north of $24,500.
"The Viking Ship Museum is much more than just a museum - it's a working, living museum, where craftsmen, using authentic tools, have re-discovered the ancient skills of how the Vikings built these ultimate war machines."

Gear  |  News
Apple today unveiled iOS 8, the new version of the mobile software, iOS 8, boasts a new way for users to interact with notifications — text messages, calendar updates or Facebook posts — without launching individual apps. A new e-mail feature allows users to set aside the message they're writing with a downward swipe to retrieve information from another document. The new iCloud Drive feature syncs all Mac folders across every Mac, iPhone or Windows PC that a user owns. That feature is like cloud storage service Dropbox. And a new "handoff" feature allows Mac users to place and receive calls and texts via their Mac, even to non-iPhone users. Apple also unveiled HomeKit, a new platform that would enable people to control all the items in their homes with the iPad or iPhone. That means iOS 8 will let people manage their lights, cameras, door locks, switches, plugs, thermostats and other connected devices.

Dubai Police Will Use Google Glass

Gear  |  News
Police in Dubai have begun using Google Glass as part of an effort to crack down on traffic violations. This week traffic officers are testing the wearable devices, and they intend to use the wearable gadget to identify wanted vehicles and also to issue fines to motorists. The Dubai Police developed two custom applications: one to capture and upload photos of traffic violators, and another to identify wanted cars based on licensed plate numbers.
"If it passes our testing criteria as well as we see that it is a useful device, then we might decide to launch it and buy more of it," Al Razooqi said. Using the apps developed by his unit, police can capture and upload photos to the department's database by tapping the side of the headset, and can capture license numbers simply by looking at a car's plates. These numbers will be automatically cross-referenced against a central database to flag any wanted cars.

Japanese drink manufacturer Otsuka plans to send a can of powdered energy drink to the moon's surface in October, 2015.
"Japanese beverage maker Otsuka is sending a 1 kilogram titanium can filled with powdered sports drink and children's dreams to the moon. The specially designed canister, which contains a shipment of Otsuka's Pocari Sweat powder, will mark a disturbing new frontier for humanity: the first commercial product delivered to another world for marketing purposes.
The canister will be carried to the lunar surface aboard the first planned private moon-landing mission, set to take place in October 2015. Otsuka says it hopes that the stunt will inspire young people to become astronauts, so they can travel the 380,000 kilometers (236,121 miles) to our closest celestial neighbor, crack open the can, and consume the powder inside.
The capsule will be conveyed to the moon by the Falcon 9 rocket. The Falcon 9, designed to be a potentially reusable means of space travel by Elon Musk's SpaceX, has already made three successful supply runs to the International Space Station, but the planned mission in October 2015 would be the first time one of its rockets has successfully provided propulsion to the moon."
