Images Hidden in Famous Logos
You’ve seen these famous logos countless times on billboards, passing by on trucks, and at the grocery store, but there is more to them than meets the eye. If you take a closer look, you will find that these recognized logos have hidden images and messages. Check out these inventive designs that cleverly use white space and optical illusions to display subliminal messages.

FedEx
  This logo appears to be very simple, but if you look at the white space between the "E" and "x" in “Ex," you'll find it is more complex than you thought. Can you spot the arrow?

Suspect no match for wrestling sisters

Suspect no match for wrestling sisters

An alleged hit-and-run driver proved to be no match for a pair of wrestling sisters who used their grappling skills to score a roadside takedown.
Brittany and Brienna Delgado, members of the Oklahoma City University wrestling team, then held the suspect with wrestling techniques until police arrived.
"My sister and I are very proficient wrestlers and also played football in high school, so we know about tackling," Brittany Delgado (right) told The Oklahoman.
The sisters were driving with their grandmother Saturday night when there was a collision with another car. The other driver got out of his car and started running away. Both Delgados pursued him with Brienna in the lead.
"When I was chasing him I was still yelling, 'You need to come back,'" Brienna told The Oklahoman. “I wasn't wearing the proper footwear. I got a little road rash when I tackled him."
 Brienna said the man had his hands beneath him when she tackled him. Then, in case he had a weapon, she concentrated on securing his hands and brought them behind his back with a wrestling move (hammerlock or chicken wing, depending on your terminology or interpretation).

Man Bathes With Rattlesnakes

Man Bathes With Rattlesnakes

The tiny Coryell County town of Oglesby is known for its rattlesnakes and this weekend, 3,000 people piled around a snake pit to see a world record shattered.

KCEN was there to meet the “Snake Man” before his slithery bath.
In the snake pit, Heart of Texas Snake Handlers President Jackie Bibby is a star. “Having been bit numerous times,” he says, “I do know and understand the effect of a rattlesnake bite.”
Bibby is from Rising Star, Texas and is at the 42nd annual “Rattlesnake Round-up” to increase his own star power. “I’ll be trying to get in the bathtub with more than 120 rattlesnakes.”
Yep…a snake bath with at least 121 rattlers to break a Guinness Book world record. “Once I get the record in the can,” he says, “after that the rest is gonna be icing on the cake.”
The snakes thrown in the tub are not trained and tamed. They are Central Texas rattlers, through and through. Oglesby Lion’s Club President Duane Heiner says, “We have snake handlers and snake hunters that go out throughout the county, throughout various counties. They go round up a bunch of rattlesnakes and bring them in.”

With a crowd gathered around and some excited “Snake Man” fans, Bibby broke the world record, sitting in the tub with 123 snakes.
While the risk of these slitherers is extreme, it is one Bibby says he lives for. “You’re never more alive than when you’re near death,” he says.
Wonder what is done with all of these rattlesnakes after the round-up? Many snake hunters sell the meat to a buyer, who then sells it to Asian countries where the meat is considered a delicacy.

Kardashian's wedding details surface

 

Kim Kardashian is the type of woman who wears Christian Louboutin heels and a full face of makeup for a trip to the store, so you know a special occasion like her wedding to NBA player Kris Humphries on Saturday, August 20, is going to be an event to remember. "Access Hollywood" reports that in Montecito, California, where the ceremony will be taking place, the not-so-secret nuptials are being referred to as "Project W." Still, in an attempt to protect Kim and Kris' privacy, the wedding planner sent out requests to nearby residents asking them to cover up their address numbers.

Ironically, no one has leaked as many details as the bride-to-be herself, with the help of her Twitter account and blog, plus indirectly through tons of paparazzi shots that show her looking fab while running pre-wedding errands. Kim, 30, has let everything slip from her wedding dress designer to the scent she'll wear as she weds Kris, 26. Here's a recap of what we know about the big day:

The Invitation
Forget about simple stationery! Kim had her invitations designed by Lehr & Black, the go-to peeps for celebrity unions. The company has also created wedding invites for Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Fergie and Josh Duhamel, and Kim's sister Khloe and Lamar Odom. People reports the fancy-schmancy black-and-white invitation arrived in its own box covered with -- get this -- jet black hematite crystals. It also specified that guests were to "wear black or white" to the black-tie affair.

Mind-boggling illusion of light and shade

Mind-boggling illusion of light and shade

Don't believe everything you see. Take this insane optical illusion, which uses light and shadow to transform a gray square into a white square right before your eyes:

It's a pretty impressive effect -- but it's not entirely new. The Checker Shadow illusion was published back in 1995 by MIT professor Edward H. Adelson, though optical illusion guru 'brusspup' really gives it new life by bringing it off the page and into the real world.

Biggest A-list celeb homes for sale

Biggest A-list celeb homes for sale 
From Harrison Ford to Sean “Diddy” Combs to the late Elizabeth Taylor, there are true mega-star homes on the market right now, and these incredible properties reflect the success of their owners. You can own a piece of A-list real estate as long as you're able to pay the price.
Interestingly, when it comes to the most famous celebrities, real estate may be one of the few non-inflated things you can buy. You can buy a mid-1970s Rolex Submariner 55XX series for under $5000, but the same watch, except that it was worn by actor Steve McQueen, went for over a quarter of a million dollars.


Likewise, JFK’s cigar humidor fetched more than half a million dollars at auction, and it takes up about a square foot of real estate. So in a world obsessed with celebrity, where provenance can increase values hundreds or thousands of times, celebrity homes, which get only slightly inflated by their history, might seem like a bargain in comparison. Of course, when you go to sell, you’ll find the same lack of celebrity appreciation disappointing, but in the meantime, at least you can throw great parties in a mansion where one of the most famous people on the planet once threw parties.
Celebrity homes are on the market all the time, with plenty to choose from, and compared to the recent rash of high eight and even nine-digit billionaire homes, they can be surprisingly affordable, even for the true A-Listers. Of course, some are plenty expensive.
Here is a look at some of the homes of the ultra-famous currently on the market according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com:

Harrison Ford
Price: $16,000,000
Location: New York, NY

Invisible man disappears in supermarket

An artist best-known as the real-life invisible man has painted himself again for a new photograph collection – this time against a supermarket shelf.

Chinese-born Liu Bolin has mastered the art of camouflaging himself against a variety of backdrops and taking photos of the impressive results.

The talented 38-year-old has travelled far and wide disguising himself across many surroundings, including a London phone box, a pile of bricks, the Beijing Olympic stadium, a Venetian canal and a graffiti-covered wall.
 A supermarket shelf may have been an odd choice of installation for the fine arts graduate, but he appears to blend naturally into the colourful stocked-up shelf of soda bottles and Pepsi cans.

Rebecca Black Pulled From School Due To Bullying

 It's hardly shocking news that some on the Internet hate Rebecca Black. With her "Friday" video getting well over a hundred million hits on YouTube, it's no surprise she has a few in-person haters, too. Unfortunately, among them are some of Black's schoolmates. Their taunting has finally resulted in Black being pulled from school.

Black's mother has decided to home school the 14-year-old from now on, a new decision which also allows more time to focus on her daughter's career. But the teen seems zen about her alarming circumstances. The online anti-Rebecca comments became so violent at one point the FBI became involved when Black started receiving death threats. But now that the bullying has branched off the internet and into her real life, Black has been forced to act.
