Cool Things Spotted in Clouds

Carl Sagan once hypothesized that as a survival technique, human beings are "hard-wired" from birth to identify the human face. This allows people to use only minimal details to recognize faces from a distance and in poor visibility but can also lead them to interpret random images or patterns of light and shade as being faces. This is particularly true with the clouds we see in the sky, and these five images are perfect examples. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.

Power Bed Risers with built-in USB ports and outlets might sound simple, but it's borderline genius in that many rooms lack extra power outlets for their gadgets. Sure, this accessory raises the bed 7-inches, but also eliminates the need to climb behind the bed every time you need to plug something in by moving the outlet from behind the bed to the foot of the bed of your choosing.

When viewed from the perfect angles, these anamorphic - distorted unless viewed from certain vantage points - sand drawings come to life in a 3D-like way. These drawings were created by New Zealand-based artist and musician Jamie Harkins. He says, "We've seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it's always been geometric, flat shapes, like a pattern, so we thought we'd get into the whole 3D thing. And I kind of like the fact that it disappears at the end of the day when the tide comes in. It makes it impermanent." Click here to view the first image in this week's funny internet trolls gallery.
