trolling your own footy team! who said the germans don't have a sense of humour...

Last March, fans of German football club FC Magdeburg helped their players find the goal during the match against Berliner AK ’07 by pointing giant arrows towards the net. This happened after Magdeburg remained scoreless for five consecutive matches.

Gabby Douglas’s Beam Performance Gives Us The Defining Photo Of The London Olympics Erik Malinowski "I'm just not certain how sports photography gets any better than this. Greg Bull of the Associated Press deserves every Sports Photo of the Year Award coming his way in a few months' time. Gabby Douglas gave a historic performance today in the women's gymnastics all-around, and this is a photo worthy of that accomplishment." AP photo by Gregory Bull

hey did ya miss world middle finger day? me too...

World Middle Finger Day on August 1 What a wonderful freedom we have: the freedom to object. Protests brought down the iron curtain. Protests brought about the Arab Spring. Technology has enabled us. We share our annoyance and our outrage with everybody, everywhere. It is an effective vehicle for change. Locally and globally. It's a freedom we should cherish. That's why we are initiating World Middle Finger Day, using as our symbol the universal gesture for discontent, for protest. Let us celebrate this freedom: whatever it is, big or small, on August 1, give'em the finger. No Hate-policy: We distance our efforts from any such behavior and will eliminate any comment or contribution which we deem to be hate-mongering. Monies from sales will go to a fund to support peaceful protesters. Spread the word and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see the unique ways people all over give the middle finger. Also have a look at our official anthem, the World Middle Finger Song, on youtube.

Earth Time Lapse from richardwaghorn on Vimeo.

Earth Time Lapse by richardwaghorn A time lapse journey round the Earth, first during the day and then through the night - day time passes over Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and California / Mexico, and night time passes over the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, the USA, Canada and the Atlantic Ocean. Several night sequences feature the fabulous Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) and watch out for the Milky Way, and thunderstorms at night over mid-West USA. Photograph sequences were taken by the crews of Expedition 30 and Expedition 31 on board the International Space Station (ISS) between December 2011 and June 2012.
