There is nothing better than a photo that was timed perfectly that you simply did not expect to get. There are plenty of times when the perfect photo just falls into your lap and here are a few different instances where the perfectly timed photo just happened.
This photo shows a cargo ship just moments before it topples over. You can see the containers overbalancing the boat as makes a turn. The boat is clearly going to topple over, it is just a matter of time.
Here we see a pilot eject himself just seconds before his plane is engulfed in flames. The plane goes up in flames as it scrapes the ground in a crash landing and the ejector seat propels the pilot clear of the wreckage.
Here we see a woman that is seconds away from being brushed up against by an alligator. The woman seems completely oblivious to the gator that is lurking just inches from her legs.
Whale of a Ride
This photo shows a whale shark trying to filter in plankton while an unsuspecting diver swims just on the other side of the huge mouth. Hopefully the diver got out of the way before disaster struck.
Here we see a driver that has been thrown clear of the wreckage of his go cart. The driver is clearly as confused about what happened as we are and the other drivers seem just as concerned.
Here we see an air boat that is about to topple over into what might be gator infested waters. The boat is in the everglades it appears and the people on board are certainly taken aback by what is going down.
This is a crash that the spectators never saw coming. Here we see a race car that has flipped and crashed and is nearly in the laps of the people watching the race. I’m sure that they didn’t sit so close to the track the next race they went to.
Here we see a beautiful model with what appears to be a huge python. While we are sure the snake is trained to interact with people, that does not make it any less intimidating and any less terrifying.
The clowns are coming
Here we see a pastry delivery man about to run into two scary looking clowns. For those that are afraid of clowns, this is surely a nightmare come true.
Here we see a young man on his bike about to crash into a lake or a body of water while two women watch. They appear to be having a great time but I’m sure that the young man on the bike was not prepared when he finally hit that water.
Watch Out for That Pole
We can all appreciate a beautiful woman but some people take it a step too far. Here we see a man looking at an attractive woman as she walks by and he nearly runs into a pole doing so. He isn’t watching where he is going and he is about to pay the price.
Battle of the Birds
Birds are adorable, they also fight quite a bit. Here we see a bird mid fight as it pushes the other bird off its perch so it can have all the food without anyone to bother him. He really seems determined to have all the food to himself on this bird feeder.
Here we see a bride on her wedding day, too bad no one told her that the angle made it look like she was more of a mythical beast than a beautiful blushing bride.
Walking on Sunshine
Here we see a skydiver doing what most people only wish they could. It looks like he is walking on clouds when he is really just free falling.
Look Out Behind You
Here we see a hunter with his fresh kill as well as a mountain lion waiting for him to leave so it can eat the elk. This is a truly scary situation as an adult mountain lion could very easily kill this man with very little effort and we doubt that the camera man would be able to react before it was too late.
A Jump Too Far
Here we see a rider that has jumped a bit too far off of her horse. She seems to have gone a bit too far forward and her horse is having a tough time catching up. We all know how this one ends but this photo is certainly priceless.
Your Scope is a Bit Too Close
Anyone that knows anything about guns knows that a gun this size is going to have quite a bit of kick. This means that the gun is going to kick back after it is fired and will likely black her eye, if not black it, at the very least hurt is very badly.
This fish made its film debut just as this diver was posing for a shot. The fish seemed to know just when the camera was going to go off and it even seems like it was smiling for the photo.
Here we see a cat that is either training for an event or simply trying to win at the hardest game of hide and seek ever. This cat really seems dedicated to the craft and the dog has no idea what is going on.
New Meaning to Pop A Wheelie
Here we see that there is a new meaning to pop a wheelie as this dirt bike rider literally popped off his wheel while riding. His bike is going to hit the ground hard when it finally comes down.
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
