Shahrukh khan's part time income.

Ever wondered how Shahrukh paid a tax of Rs 27 Crore last year by starring in just two movies. Well it is to nobody’s surprise that brand Shahrukh is the hottest thing in the Indian advertising industry.

A Fish with a Transparent Head.

  Macropinna macrostoma (common name “barreleyes”) can rotate its eyes to a vertical position; because its head is transparent, it can then see predators or prey above itself without moving its body!

Compact Amusement Park.

Japan is, of course, famous for its efficient use of space, but it never ceases to amaze me how much entertainment the tiny Tokyo Dome City Attractions (formerly Korakuen) manages to crowd into such a tiny plot of land. It’s got a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, drop tower, water ride, and much, much more. Admission is free.

How things work in the Gulf…

DUBAI SYSTEM:

You have two cows. You create a website for them and advertise them in all magazines. You create a Cow City or Milk Town for them. You sell off their milk before the cows have even been milked to both legitimate and shady investors who hope to sell the non-existent milk for a 100% profit in two years time. You bring Tiger Woods to milk the cows first to attract attention.

QATAR SYSTEM:

You have two cows. They’ve been sitting there for decades and no one realizes that cows can produce milk. You see what Dubai is doing; you go crazy and start milking the heck out of the cows in the shortest time possible. Then you realize no one wanted the milk in the first place.

A temple has been built by monks in northeast Thailand who used over a million recycled beer bottles to make the walls and roof.

Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew, also known as Wat Lan Kuad or ‘the Temple of a Million Bottles’, is in Sisaket province near the Cambodian border, 400 miles from the capital Bangkok.

The Buddhist monks began collecting bottles in 1984 and they collected so many that they decided to use them as a building material.
