THE LAKE THAT TURNS ANIMALS INTO STATUE-LIKE CREATURES

THE LAKE THAT TURNS ANIMALS THAT TOUCH IT INTO STATUE-LIKE CREATURES (NO, REALLY)



They look like dusty statues, but the photographs of animals — mostly birds — taken by photographer Nick Brandt were once vibrant, living creatures.
Their fatal mistake? Taking a dip in Lake Natron.
Lake Natron, located in Tanzania, on the Kenyan border has a concentration of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate, in addition to magnesite deposits, that result in this deadly phenomenon. According to New Scientist, these compounds are present in the lake due to a nearby volcano dumping ash.
“I unexpectedly found the creatures — all manner of birds and bats — washed up along the shoreline of Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania. No one knows for certain exactly how they die, but it appears that the extreme reflective nature of the lake’s surface confuses them, and like birds crashing into plate glass windows, they crash into the lake,” Brandt wrote in his photo book "Across the Ravaged Land," according to Discover Magazine.

Scorned Husband in Jealous Spray

 photo paintrevenge_zpsbb1bbaa4.jpg

A FURIOUS husband has taken public revenge on his wife's admirer in an unlikely place -- his rival's garage door.
A Reddit user with the screen name igotskraped posted a photo of a garage attached to a house in Illinois, tagged with a very clear message in red spray paint: "Don't e-mail my wife!!!!"
The scorned spouse added on the smaller side entrance: "Stop now".
The images were shared a month ago. There has been no update on this very public love triangle.
