    The Lake Monsters of America
    Gear  |  Pic  
    Look at all the lake monsters on this map! The full map at Atlas Obscura has a legend of its own, to explain the different types of monsters. There are serpents (like Nessie), giant fish monsters, monstrous turtles, and even a cephalopod or two...
    "A 1923 eyewitness account of the monster of Alkali Lake in Nebraska reported that the single-horned alligator-esque creature let out a "dreadful roar" from the water. Described as 40 feet long with a horn like a rhinoceros, as well as an atrocious smell that is near fatal in itself, it's apparently a very hungry creature and devours anything in its path. Mostly this has been livestock. Sightings peaked in the 1920s, but have since faded, so perhaps Alkali Lake, now called Walgren Lake, is free from its fearsome, smelly unicorn beast."

    The time-lapse was created by photographer Sungjin Ahn over one year.
    "The overall goal of this time lapse is to provide the beauty of Joshua trees that only live in the U.S. I thought it would be amazing If I can collect all the footages of Joshua trees with different weather condition like snowing , different type of clouds, sun, moon ,milky way,and meteor shower.
    Joshua trees only live in western Arizona, southeastern California, southern Nevada, and southwestern Utah, which means that we can’t see this trees in different countries but only in America."

On the land he built a small cabin using materials from the land and milling trees by hand. When his wife passed away, Jack effectively left "society" and moved to the cabin full time.

    RadiationProof Underwear Released in Japan
    Gear  |  Other  
    Made by Japan's swimwear company Yamamoto Corporation. Yamamoto says it differs from traditional radiation protective clothing. The first layer of protection is a pair of lead-lined underwear that keeps harmful gamma rays away from your abdomen and lower spine, where it could do irreparable harm. A beta-ray shielding suit should then be worn over the gamma ray crotch guard to ward of the beta rays. The shielding suit is effective as its seams are completely fused, keeping the radiation out and keeping its wearer safe. Yamamoto Corporation is slated to begin selling its radiation shielding garments later this month. The drysuit(a sort of wetsuit) will run you $1,072, while the lead-lined underwear will cost an additional $825. Extremely expensive!

    Wet Dog by French photographer Sophie Gamand.
    "Wet Dog is a series on dogs being washed during their grooming sessions. The way the water plays with their hair in a very painterly manner, and their facial expressions as the water is poured on them creates striking portraits that resemble famous humans or important characters. The dogs become timeless sculptures. Wet Dog is part of a project about grooming and the way we alter our dogs’ appearance to fit standards of hygiene and beauty."
