Malaysia has a very strong economy. Sadly, the same cannot be said about the countries zoos where animals are kept in tiny, often dirty enclosures, with little to no attention and care. One of the animals that has gained attention in these zoos is Shirley the Orangutan, who has somehow picked up a nasty nicotine addiction.
Imagining what the future holds can be interesting, and has mesmerized humans ever since we’ve had the ability to think. We may have no idea on how events will look like nearly a decade into the future and it seems rather impossible to even predict the gadgets and technology that will be available that time. Well, that ain’t going to stop us from trying though. These renderings are a take by designer Tommaso Gecchelin on what Apple MacBooks may look like in 2020, and what technology and features they might have to offer.

Bored by painting people’s houses in pastel colors, Robert Burns of East Sussex, UK decided his own place could get a life. With that in mind, the man set off on a mission to recreate the Sistine Chapel in every room of his house, probably laying claim to Michelangelo’s fame. This masterpiece Sistine Chapel home took eight years to complete, and interestingly enough, Burns has never seen the original Sistine Chapel in all its glory. Unable to afford a trip to Italy, the man relied on pictures in coffee table books to get hold of the effect and dimensions to work on the striking piece. He did make a few changes though, like having Russell Brand with a crown of thorns depicted as Jesus.
