What happens when an airplane hits a bird

Poor birdie. If you ever wondered what would happen if an airplane and a bird hit each other head on, here it is. It doesn’t end up exactly how you think it would. Well, it kind of does as in the bird loses but it is a little surprising in how high and straight the bird bounces in the air after hitting the nose of the jet. Poor birdie.

Video: Flyover drone footage of Auschwitz concentration camp is haunting

The BBC flew a drone over the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp today to show off what it looks like and it's absolutely haunting. Over a million people died in this concentration camp from 1940 to 1945. It's been 70 years since the Soviets liberated the camp and it's still so tragic to see.

Video: The terrible video game of life is showing off on social media

A man returns to Chernobyl after leaving decades ago

This is the music video for It's Alright, by Fractures, filmed in location in Chernobyl, Ukraine, right after the Maidan revolution that shook that country. It's not as visually or musically powerful as Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky, but I like the overall tone.

Portraits of abandoned dogs before being put down at a shelter

Portraits of abandoned dogs before being put down at a shelter

Taiwanese photographer Yun-Fei Tou created these portraits of abandoned dogs minutes before being euthanized to "arouse people's awareness of animals rights." What really fucks me up is to look into their eyes knowing they didn't know what was coming up next. A stark reminder of our responsibility towards these beings.
