When a pigeon flies, you can hear it sloppily slap its wings as it makes its way through the air. When a peregrine falcon flies, the flight is powerful and beautiful but you can still hear the movement. When a barn owl flies? Complete silence. It’s amazing to see. BBC Earth set up microphones along the flight path of the birds to let us hear the difference.Read more...

I laughed. Pretty hard, actually. Right when the fluffy cloud that is cotton candy started oozing sweet sugary alien blood, I laughed hard. It’s so ridiculous and it disappears so quickly and breaks down in such a balletic way that I can’t even think about turning my head away. In fact, I don’t want to even blink.

The Soviet Union. The USSR. The Iron Curtain. The Eastern Bloc. Lenin. Stalin. The Communist Party. The KGB. The Cold War. And awesomely designed bus stops? Apparently and bizarrely and awesomely, that’s one of the legacies of the Soviet Union. Photographer Christopher Herwig’s excellent photo book Soviet Bus Stops documents the design of local bus stops across the former USSR and they’re all so impressively weird and crazy and out of place that it doesn’t really make any sense.
