Roads and highways can often make good makeshift or temporary landing strips. While the practice is not common, armed forces still do train for the exercise. The video here shows a F-18 Hornet taking off from a highway outside Joroinen in Sweden.

You probably have seen Thor: The Dark World by now, which makes it ripe to be presented in the form of the honest trailers we all so love and admire. “Get ready to revisit Thor: The Dark World! Prepare for another perfectly passable Thor movie while we all wait for The Avengers 2.”

This reminds me of the old joke. What did one fish in a tank say to the other? How do we drive this thing?
Well that might exactly be what fish in the ‘Fish on Wheels’ might be talking about. When the fish in this tank moves, a top mounted webcam captures its movement and relays it to the arduino controlled carriage that drives in the direction of the fish’s movements. We’re guessing it would be quite some fun to see the direction the fish takes when left in the open.
Baby Kayden experiences rain for the first time. Its priceless!
