Longest Place Name in the World

"Taumata whakatangihanga koauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu" is the Māori name for a hill, 305 metres (1,001 ft) high in New Zealand. It has gained a measure of fame as it is the longest place-name found in any English-speaking country.

The name on the sign that marks the hill is "Taumata whakatangihanga koauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu", which translates roughly as The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who travelled about, played his nose flute to his loved one. At 85 letters, it has been listed in the Guinness World Records as one of the longest place names in the world.

It’s shortened to "Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu" (57 letters) in the New Zealand Geographic Placenames Database, and often shortened even further to “Taumata”, for ease of conversation by the locals.

Amazing art on eggshells by Artist Franc Grom

Creating a work of art is such a delicate process it can feel as if every step is like walking on eggshells. Imagine how intense the process would be if eggs were literally your canvas. Franc Grom crafts beautiful, lacelike sculptures into egg shells, inspired by traditional Slovenian design. Each egg contains 2,500 to 17,000 tiny holes.

Grom starts his process by poking holes in the top and bottom of the shell and blowing out the liquid. He then creates the designs for his eggs by freehand, using only his imagination and a tiny electric drill. Grom's attention to detail accentuates the eggshell's delicate nature, creating fragile vessels that light up from within. 

Car tire's dumped on the Ocean Floor

Approximately two million old car tires are on the ocean floor off Fort Lauderdale in the US, dumped in the 1970s with the intent of creating an artificial reef. The tires are now scouring the ocean floor and wedging against the natural reef, killing coral.

There are no really historical records of the volume and type of material that was spilled in the oceans before the establishment of an anti-dumping law. However, it is estimated that in 1968, 38 million tons of excavated material, 4.5 million tons of industrial waste, 4.5 million sewage sludge, 100 million tons of petroleum-based product (plastic), 2 to 4 tonnes of chemical waste, more than 1 million tons of heavy metals were released into the ocean.The U.S. archive shows that between 1946 and 1970 over 55,000 containers of radioactive waste were disposed in 3 sites of dumping of the Pacific Ocean. In addition, 34,000 tons of radioactive wastes were disposed in 3 sites of dumping of the U.S. east coast between 1951 and 1962. No law on dumping radioactive waste has been put into force before 1972. No one has bothered to remove the waste.
