Believe it or not, this ring is actually made from dinosaur bone, meteorite and gold, a very unusual blend of unique materials. According to its designer, we’re talking about genuine dinosaur leg bone. A certificate of authenticity is provided when you purchase it. The space rock material comes from the Gibeon meteorite, a rock that measured about 13 feet by 13 feet by 5 feet thick and weighed at least 26 tons when it plunged to Earth. No matter how you look at it, this ring is an incredible creation.

True Sportsmanship…

Game between Al Nahdha and Al Ittihad on Thursday reaffirms the notion of sportsmanship.

Al Nahdha’s goalkeeper Taisir Al Antaif was about to make a clearance early in the second half with the scores still at 2-2 – but noticed that his shoelace had come undone, and was clearly nervous about his boot coming off as he kicked.

The opposing striker bearing down on him, a Brazilian by the name of Jobson, noticed what was going on – but instead of trying to take advantage, he ran up to his opponent and tied his shoelace for him.

The referee, however, penalised the keeper for taking too long with his clearance.

He awarded an indirect free kick inside the area, and the home side lined up, clearly fearing the worst as Al Ittihad’s strike force discussed their attacking options.

But in one of the most subtle and greatest insults given to a match official, Al Ittihad did the decent thing and merely passed the ball safely off the pitch. Even the supporters cheered at the gesture.

When he wrote about the experience, Ben said, “Many people have asked me how I felt while doing that photo session. What I want them to know is that this isn’t a story about grief and loss and hurt. Yes, I’ve gone through those emotions and still do but that’s not what I want people to see in these photos. This is a story about love.”

As they went through the house, Olivia stopped to play with a curling iron that had belonged to her mother. A similar photo of her mom Ali getting ready with a curling iron on her wedding day is on the left.

“The memories of Ali don’t live in that house,” Ben wrote of his late wife. “They live with us, in our hearts.”

Ben learned how to play his and Ali’s wedding song, Stevie Wonder’s “I Believe (When I Fall In Love With You It Will Be Forever),” on the ukulele. Now he plays it for his daughter.

“Our lives will continue down a curvy and uncertain path, but Olivia and I will be able to look at these photos and know that for a short time there was a place where I was the luckiest man in the world, even if just for a little while,” wrote Ben.

This 144-Year-Old Wisteria In Japan Looks Like A Pink Sky

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

These stunning photographs, which look like a glorious late evening sky with dashes of pink and purple, are actually pictures of Japan’s largest wisteria plant.
This glorious plant, located in Ashikaga Flower Park in Japan, is certainly not the largest in the world, but it still comes in at an impressive 1,990 square meters and dates back to around 1870 (the largest in the world right now, at about 4,000 square meters, is the wisteria vine in Sierra Madre, California). Because its vines have the potential to get very heavy, this plant’s entire structure is held up on steel supports, allowing visitors to walk below its canopy and bask in the pink and purple light cast by its beautiful hanging blossoms.

A Goat Rescued From An Animal Hoarder Refuses To Eat For Six Days Until His Best Friend Is Safe With Him

Friday, July 19th, 2013

One day, a 10-yr old goat named Mr. G arrived to Animal Place’s Rescue Ranch adoption center. For a decade he lived with a burro on the property of an animal hoarder.
The goat and Jellybean the burro were adopted separately by two different animal sanctuaries.

Mr. G refused to eat. He spent his days lying in a corner of his stall, barely lifting his head. After health exams revealed nothing physically, it became evident Mr. G was in mourning, assuming his friend Jellybean had disappeared forever. He was inconsolable. After six days of starving himself, they decided to bring Jellybean to the same sanctuary. Here’s their reaction when they’re finally together:
