Weirdest Lock

Anyone worries about the security of traditional locks, might want to look into this one. Simply put, the key required to open it isn't just a straight, flat piece of metal, but rather a watch strap-inspired flexible chain that's contained in a hard slip-casing for insertion into the winding snake-like lock.

Bead Kitchen

This is not a fake image or painting, but rather a real kitchen created by artist Liza Lou. She spent 5-years building this life-sized kitchen and backyard using lots of tiny glass beads. These brightly colored glass beads are known as "seed beads" and often used for making jewelry. These "seed beads" cover the food, the water in the sink, the furniture and fixtures, and all 250,000 blades of grass in the backyard. No machines were used, just her hands and a pair of tweezers to place each one in the right place. Continue reading for more images and information.

Hate Mondays

While Mondays are usually sluggish for many people at work, there are others who definitely need a week-long vacation away from the office. For example, this person decided to create a box illusion that looks normal from the front, but when you walk around the back, you'll see that all of them have been stitched together to create a makeshift sleeping place of sorts.

Airline Meal

Not everyone can afford a $20,000 suite when they fly, but these photographers wanted to show that things aren't so bad in economy and / or business classes. On a related note, the first airline meals were served by Handley Page Transport, an airline company founded in 1919, to serve the London-Paris route in October of that year. Passengers could choose from a selection of sandwiches and fruit. Now, as you can obviously tell from the Air France economy class meal above, things have changed quite a bit.

Boeing X-37B

Nobody, not even internet users, know what the Air Force's X-37B secret unmanned spacecraft was working on (or watching) for the past two years. It landed at 9:24am local time on October 17, 2014 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, according to the Air Force's 30th Space Wing. What we do know is that its size doesn't allow for much more than avionics equipment, fuel for the thrusters, and a mysterious cavity about the size of a truck bed that could that could possibly contain sensors, experiments, hardware, or even a bomb.

Past Technology

If someone asked us what we think the year 2100 is going to be like, it'd probably be filled with holodecks, flying cars, and other crazy things. Between the years of 1899 and 1900, Hildebrands - a German chocolate company - created a series of postcards called "Life in the Year 2000." As you can see, these postcards showed all kinds of crazy concepts about what people thought the year 2000 was going to be like. Continue reading to see them all.

Titanic Disaster

The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of April 15, 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. It was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast with Thomas Andrews as her naval architect. Andrews was among those lost in the sinking. On her maiden voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny demotivational poster gallery.
