Best Construction “Innovations” Ever

We all fell foul of construction calamities at some point so we don’t think these people should feel too bad about these:

Caution: Watch Out For Hazards

When we were kids it was all about making sure our constructions looked as good as possible and if we didn’t we could just take it to pieces and start all over again.

Even if it was a minor detail like our friend’s construction looked so much better than ours, nothing was too much effort to make sure ours was the ultimate build.  Sadly, as we got older our quest for perfection started to fade.

As adults the main goal is pretty much to get the thing finished and move on, we all know there is more to life than work – like doing things we enjoy for instance.

Unusual Russian Facts: The Best Place To Be

It’s no secret Russia is the largest country in the world or that it has 11 different time zones. It has a diverse landscape that range from tundra and forests to subtropical beaches. So we made it our mission to show you what it’s like to live in this vast nation!

Russia once had a Beard Tax

This fact is a bit historical, but it’s still pretty weird! A few centuries ago, in 1698, Emperor Peter I implemented a beard tax in Russia in an attempt to enforce a ban on the long and hairy facial hair that many sported.

Men would have to pay a tax in order to sport a beard, and if they couldn’t pay, the Russian police would forcibly and publicly shave all of the men’s beards. The reasoning behind this? The Emperor wanted Russia’s men to look more like Western European models.

Take the flight with us, there’s more:

Marvel and DC Characters in Real Life

Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds has had his misses, but he also had his hit in 2016.  He bombed miserably with The Green Lantern as well as his first Deadpool attempt in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Deadpool made up for all that, becoming the highest- grossing rated R movie ever.  Guardians of the Galaxy was funny, but Deadpool raised the bar.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

While Green Lantern was a box office flop, Ryan Reynolds can be thankful for the movie for one reason; meeting Blake Lively on set.  In 2012, the couple married and currently, have two daughters.  Blake Lively has also gone on to some box-office smashes like Café Society and The Age of Adaline.

Scandals Of The Discovery Channel Network

When we think of the Discovery Channel, we think of a great resource for learning new things about nature, cultures, and the world in general. However, like many things these days it seems it has become polluted. These days many of the shows are shrouded in scandal. From verging on plain dangerous to reality shows that are riddled with convicted criminals, the channel has taken a dark turn.

The channel is owned by Discover Communications which also owns Animal Planet and TLC, but it seems with Discovery Channel something has gone very wrong. Take a look at this list where we discover some of the worst scandals in of the TV network that will make you disgusted and discover how people have made millions off their disgusting habits.

Why Man vs. Wild’s Bear Grylls Was Fired

Remember Grylls, the guy that would do literally anything including drinking his own pee for survival. He was fired from the channel that made him a household name thanks to not putting in the work required outside Man vs Wild and made it very clear he wouldn’t work with the network for future endeavors.

Discover Communications did not allow him to tick with the show that shot him to fame citing that his conduct was unbecoming. Although Man Vs Wild ran for 6 seasons with high ratings it was canceled due to personal problems and contract issues.

The Alaskan Bush People Aren’t Even Alaskan

When you advertise yourself as a Reality Show there is a general expectation from the viewers that at least most of the content is based on truth, but when it came to The Alaskan Bush People no one could figure out what was real and what based on lies. Down to the very name of the show- turns out the supposed ‘Alaskan Bush’ people aren’t even Alaskan and lives 10 miles outside of the town!

Several cast members claimed they were born and raised in the wild, though it soon came to light that many were living in Texas and Colorado! Furthermore, family members Billy, Bear, Bam, Noah, Matthew, and Gabriel were given citations due to false claims they made on their hunting and fishing licenses regarding their residency.

Alaskan Bush People Pleaded Guilty To Fraud

But as everyone knows, lies eventually come back to haunt you and that is exactly what happened here. After lying about being raised in Alaska they dug themselves into a deep hole which got them in some legal trouble. In 2015, the Brown family finally confessed they did not live in Alaska but only said so to collect government checks.  Billy and Joshua Brown pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree Unsworn Falsification which means they wrote an official statement which they knew was untrue.

And it turns out their lies were for financial gain. The state has an Alaskan Permanent Fund Division that offers full-time residents thousands of dollars to remain in the state.  Billy Brown confessed that he collected $7,956 from the state and Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown said he collected $1,174.  As you can imagine, it didn’t take long for them to be found guilty and each of them was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

No Luck No Glory

Another reality show brought forward by the station only to be proved majority fake is American Pickers. This series s follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz around as they explore the country hoping to find discarded treasures of value. The show focuses on the weird and wonderful ways they come across these treasures. While the items they found are undeniably valuable, they way they come across them is vastly different to how it is presented on screen.

How it actually works was revealed to be a whole lot less interesting. Producers are sent collector items which they access and decide what to send on to the show, only then to Fritz and Wolfe ‘examine’ them for the viewers proving that there is no such thing as a ‘lucky find’ when it comes to this show,

Pre-Selected

It would make sense that since Pawn Stars and American Pickers are on the same network their rules of conduct would be similar. While Rick Harrison seems to have the people and resources to examine everything, it was revealed that here too it is the producers that examine the artifacts!

While viewers are certainly unaware that an expert is brought in ahead of time to examine artifacts, they also have no idea that these ‘experts’ are the producers and by no means Harrison.

Find out how these shows fake what really happens:

Using Drones To Fight Malaria!

As one of the most terrifying and prominent illnesses found in Malawi, finding a solution to Malaria has been hard work. It’s a common challenge all across Africa, but it has become a major problem for Malawi in particular. Finding ways to combat the spread of malaria has been fruitless in the past, with containment the best available option – until now.

Thanks to the development and easy set-up of drone technology, they are now a prominent part of the solution to help fight back against malaria. With most of the ability to fight malaria on the ground being nothing more than good men and women using buckets and spades to get the cures and solutions they need, drone tech offers a more high-end option.

Towns like Kasungu, the town that sits at the base of the Kasungu Mountain, is a rampant part of the malaria issue. It’s also one of the first towns to take part in the Unicef drone testing program. Working alongside the Malawi government, an 80km-wide area was set up to help flying and testing out drones to help the locals fight back against the illness.

These drones are used to drop off key supplies to areas that might be hard or otherwise impossible to reach with the right tools. It also helps with scouting, making it easier to pinpoint areas where outbreaks are highest. Most importantly, though, this is helping Malawi residents learn how to build and then pilot a drone so that the good work can be continued outside of this particular area.

Indeed, with a quarter of Malawian children under the age of five suffering from malaria, it’s vital that we act quickly to help minimize the damage and limit the spread of the illness. However, elimination of malaria is still a long, long way away.

How can drones help?

Part of the problem with the spread of malaria comes from the complicated process of the Anopheles mosquito. They take a blood meal from a human or an animal, and then search for water to help lay the eggs. When they find these little ponds, pools, and lakes – common during November-April – then malaria outbreaks will swell and grow.

The aim is to try and reduce the mosquito breeding levels and to also help make sure that both dry and wet season can see reduced numbers. The aim of the drones is to help reduce the time that it takes to find mosquito breeding points and also to find mosquito larvae. This is a time-consuming task to do by hand, and the hope is that the drones can speed up this essential part of the process.

The idea, then, is to help improve analysis speed and simplicity to help find out where mosquitos are most commonly congregating and breeding. The more that can be done to control this, the better the hope is that a long-term solution can and will be found to help curb the development and rapid transmission of malaria across the board.

Discovery Channel Network Stories

The Discovery Channel has been around for a very long time and used to be a great resource for learning new things from around the world.  Sadly, all that’s going on now, are stories about casts and members of the channel that are quite scandalous. The network has reality shows literally riddled with convicted criminals – some of whom are pedophiles and felons.

Discovery Found Out

Not only does Discovery Communications own this channel, but they also own Animal Planet and TLC.  It seems the Discovery Channel has sunk to an all-time low with reality shows that are misleading and quite honestly disgusting.  Take a look at some of the worst scandals in Discovery’s history and how people on these shows were able to make money off their really nasty habits.

Not in the wild

One of the biggest criticisms was that Grylls never stayed in the wild while making the episodes, as he led us to believe. On many occasions when the camera stopped rolling Grylls would get comfy in resorts and 5-star hotels.
