The Beer Engine


It’s called The Beer Engine. The Hogs Back Brewery in Tongham, Surrey, UK commissioned this custom motorcycle. As you can see, the sidecar is a beer keg, spigot and all. The gear shift lever is a beer engine pull. The owners use the motorcycle to draw the attention of crowds at festivals and other public events.

Huskies on Frozen Lake

In autumn 2014, photographer Fox Grom captured gorgeously ethereal images of his two beautiful huskies named Alaska and Blizzard as they wandered across a frozen lake in Northern Russia minutes after a rain shower. The effect of the rainfall on the ice made it appear as if the majestic canines were walking on water that reflected their images perfectly. Grom told the Daily Mail that he always takes pictures of his dogs when they go walking.

I always take pictures of my dogs whilst walking them but on this occasion there was an extraordinary phenomenon. The ice was already very thick when it rained heavily making for a spectacular scene.

American Falls Frozen

The arctic blast that’s kept much of the northeastern United States buried under snow and ice this winter has caused its share of troubles, but it’s also prompted some incredible natural scenery, such as this view of Niagara Falls partially frozen.

It’s not unusual for portions of Niagara’s American Falls to freeze during the cold winters here at the border between New York and Ontario. In 1909, 1936, 1939, and 1949, the American Falls froze over almost completely, with the running water reduced to a trickle. But it was the March 29, 1848 ice jam on Lake Erie that brought all three of Niagara’s falls (American Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls) to a strange, silent stop.

Niagara’s winter conditions became more newsworthy this year when two ice climbers used the opportunity to set world records: On January 27, Will Gadd and Sarah Hueniken became the first man and woman to climb the frozen falls. They scaled a wall of ice on the left side of Horseshoe Falls, the largest of Niagara’s three falls.

RIP HP Lovecraft

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937) was an American author of fantasy, horror and science fiction. Although Lovecraft’s readership was limited during his life, his works sustain cult popularity and influence. He created the Cthulhu Mythos as well as the famed Necronomicon. His profound cosmic pessimism underlies all his works.
