There are many not so secret bunkers scattered around the United States that will be used in event of war or other disasters, and the most famous of which, is the Cheyenne Mountain Complex (above). This military installation and nuclear bunker is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, which hosts the activities of several tenant units. The complex was built under 2,000 feet (610 m) of granite on 2 hectares (5 acres). Fifteen three-story buildings are protected from movement by an earthquake or explosion by a system of giant springs that the buildings sit on and flexible pipe connectors to limit the operational effect of movement. The bunker is built to deflect a 30 megaton nuclear explosion as close as 2 kilometers (1.2 mi). Within a mountain tunnel are sets of 25-ton blast doors and another for the civil engineering department. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Unlike other amphibious vehicles, the Hobbycar B612, first introduced at the 1992 Paris Motor Show, is a mid-engined, jet-drive, forward-control four-seater, designed to look like a pick-up. You steer on dry land using a steering wheel, but in water, control is by joystick. Its Peugeot diesel engine is transversely-mounted amidships, and powers both the terrestrial four-wheel drive system, as well as the twin 150 kg-thrust hydrojets. All production models also have an electrically-retractable windshield, and the Citroen-sourced hydro-pneumatic suspension allows a range of height-adjustability. Unfortunately, only 52 B612s were built in the few years of production. Click here to vew the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Night Sky Petunias may look digitally altered at first glance, but they're actually real flowers by German breeder Selecta One. What's even cooler is that each petunia is unique because the density and size of the white sports depend on several factors, like temperature and light. Warm weather ensures a predominantly purple flower, while cooler temperatures bring out the whiteness in the petals. Get it here now.

Too much of a good thing can turn out to be bad, but apparently, this wasn't the case for Anthony Howard-Crow, a 32-year-old stunt dieter from Loveland, Colorado. He consumed only ice cream for 100 consecutive days, drank a small protein shake, alcohol, and managed to lose 32-pounds. "The whole point of these demonstrations is to show you - basically prove, in the best way I can - that you can eat anything you want and still lose weight," said Anthony.

Del Monte Fresh Produce spent the past decade working on a pink pineapple, and they've finally received FDA approval to sell them in the United States. They're currently being grown in Costa Rica and Hawaii, thanks to scientists who figured out how to genetically engineer the variety to produce lower levels of an enzyme present in conventional pineapple that converts the pink pigment lycopene to the yellow pigment beta carotene.

The world's first naturally fluorescent frog has been discovered in Argentina by scientists at the Bernardino Rivadaiva Natural Sciences Museum. They made the discovery while studying the metabolic origin of pigments in a tree-frog species common to South America.
