This Guy Found A Real Message In A Bottle. You Need To Read Its Story. (6pics)

Finding a message in a bottle is always an interesting plot point in movies. What’s inside? Will the glass vessel contain a treasure map? Will there be a cry for help from a stranded castaway possibly? Could it be a message meant for a lover lost at sea?
Anymore, these kinds of things are rare in our world. Now, all of the blank pages on the
map are all filled in. Sending messages is as easy as punching in what you want to say
and hitting send. These friends found an ACTUAL message in a bottle in 2014 and
what it said? It was beautiful.

This bottle washed on the beach while
some friends were soaking in the sun.

They tried opening it but it was tightly sealed.

Inside was a rolled up piece of paper that was sealed with tape.

They unrolled it and read.

They resealed the bottle using a hairband,
and sent it back from whence it came, the sea that Mel so loved.

Now, Mel’s bottle is back on its journey across the ocean. I wonder where the bottle
will appear next? If you’re curious to know too, help out and let your friends know by giving
this a share on Facebook. Who knows, maybe they too will hold Mel’s letter in their hands. [via]

A Brave Shark Steals A Fish From An Excited Fisherman

It was just a routine kayak fishing adventure for Isaac Brumaghim, until the craziest thing happened to the Hawaiian local. This was going to be a fishing trip he’d never forget.

After reeling in a catch, he was surprised by a visitor… one with a fin and lots of sharp teeth. A shark jumped right out of the water behind him and snatched his catch right off the hook. Understandably, he was quite shaken after the incident and couldn’t do much more than laugh nervously as the adrenalin rushed through his system.

At the end there he had the same fear wiggle I get coming up the last few steps from a dark basement. I understand your pain Isaac.

This Camera Of A Soldier That Died In A 1944 Battle Was Just Found. Wait Til You See What Was On It.

Captain Mark D. Anderson of the United States Navy and historian Jean Muller were searching for artifacts from The Battle of the Bulge in the mountainsides of Luxembourg when their metal detector alerted them to something just under their feet. Below Anderson and Muller was a foxhole that was dug during the crucial World War II battle and in it they found the belongings of an American soldier, Technician Fifth Grade Louis J. Archambeau. Among the things that Archambeau, who died in the battle, left behind was a camera with an undeveloped roll of film in it. Anderson and Muller developed the film and, after spending 70 years in a foxhole, a dead soldier’s photographs were finally brought to life.

This is T/5 Louis J. Archambeau’s World War II experience, told by his very own photos.

The Battle of the Bulge resulted in more American casualties than any other battle in World War II. Spanning December 16, 1944 to January 25, 1945, roughly 19,000 American soldiers lost their lives.
It’s amazing that after 70 years in a foxhole, the priceless roll of film kept the pictures and those moments captured by Louis J. Archambeau are finally brought to life.

Take A Guess What’s Inside This Rock Structure. You’ll Probably Be Wrong… It’s That Awesome.

The architects at Ensamble Studio are the bright minds behind this unique
vacation home in Spain. … but not the only minds. They created this tiny home to be rustic,
but modern, from the ground up. It was important to choose the right location,
building materials and hay for this project.
That’s right. Hay. The hay was for Paulina the cow,
an incredibly important collaborator for this architectural achievement.

Hay bales were stacked together and then covered in concrete.

architectural 1

The mass was buried in soil and allowed to harden.

architectural 2

Once cured, the shape was exhumed and sliced open.

architectural 3

That’s when Paulina the cow’s natural talents really shone.

architectural 4

Paulina was then allowed to eat away at all of the hay on the inside of the structure.

architectural 5

It took her about a year to clear out the hay.

architectural 6

The resulting space was incredibly unique and cozy.

architectural 7

It was definitely worth the wait.

architectural 8

Who knew that bovines could have such a good eye for architecture?

It Seems Like An Ordinary Cabinet In A Room. But Open It Up And… YES! Absolutely Brilliant.

Every so often I stumble upon pictures that make me question the quality of my upbringing. Something that just really makes me want to be 10 all over again, when the world was so full of magic and wonder.
That’s exactly what happened when I saw what was hiding inside this somewhat ordinary looking wardrobe:

 

That’s a facncy looking wardrobe. I wonder what secrets it holds, if any.

wardrobe1

Wait, that looks oddly familiar. Just missing some old musty fur coats…

wardrobe2

Yep! That is a hidden playroom painted to look like Narnia. All built by one man for his 9 year old daughter. Best father ever!

wardrobe3

That is the single greatest playroom I’ve ever seen. I’m in my 30s and I want that room.
What a lucky kid.
