Book Forest

Photo credit: Inhabitat

Why just chop up or burn fallen tree trunks, when you could turn them into something useful for all to enjoy. This "Book Forest" is located in Prenzlauer Berg, directly in front of a dessert cafe. It's from fallen trees cut at varying heights and bolted together to create a faux tree cluster of sorts. Visitors can open the plastic flaps to browse the books, or to add their own. Inhabitat visited this book exchange and found that the titles ranged from popular novels to history books, DIYs, and children's books.

Morgan Freeman Lookalike

No, this isn't Morgan Freeman, just a security guard in Venezuela. On a somewhat related note, did you know that Morgan Freeman earned a private pilot's license at age 65? He owns or has owned at least three private aircraft and he is certified to fly all of them. Or, that he fell asleep on-air during his live interview for the promotions of his film "Now You See Me" and when asked he gave a wry reason: "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page." Continue reading for more.

Imgur user "slothslothsloth" was looking for a quiet place to study inside his school's graduate library, but he stumbled upon a wall of boxes. As he took a closer look, all of them were labeled "Captured German Records". So, he did what many would do, pull a box out to see what exactly was inside. Turns out they are all microreel films from 1934, and part of The National Archives of the United States. Continue reading to see what ensued.

Etihad The Residence

We've featured Etihad's The Residence before, but now the airline has released several new images, along with a video, that takes you inside the $20,000 (one way) luxury penthouse in the sky, aboard its Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 aircraft. Once you step into the cabin, you're greeted with a 125-square-foot, three-room private suite, which comes complete with a Savoy-trained personal butler. Peter Baumgartner, Chief Commercial Officer of the United Arab Emirates' national airline, says: "For a three-room cabin, it's not overpriced. Effectively it's four times the price of a first class ticket, so that's double if you're traveling in a couple." Continue reading for a video, more images and additional information.

World's Deepest Fish

A new record has been set for the deepest fish ever seen in the world, captured at an incredible depth of 26,722 feet (8,145 meters) in the Mariana Trench. The snailfish isn't like the creepy creatures you've seen before, with the dark eyes and giant teeth, but they do have large heads, small eyes, and are normally slightly larger than a human hand in length. Dr Alan Jamieson, from Aberdeen University said: "This really deep fish did not look like anything we had seen before, nor does it look like anything we know of. It is unbelievably fragile, with large wing-like fins and a head resembling a cartoon dog." Continue reading for the video and more information.

How to Meet Women on the Subway

Any kind of book / magazine / etc. can provide hours of entertainment, but sometimes, what you read in public might come back to haunt you later online. For example, this person is reading How to Meet Women on the Subway (it's a real book), and ironically enough, he just so happens to be riding on one. Now the question to ask would probably be if he put any of the techniques he learned into action immediately after setting the book down. That is just one of the many people who were photographed reading strange things at the unintentionally perfect time. Continue reading to see more.
