Top 10 best cruise group shore excursions

Passengers of a cruise ship might be happy with seeing the great views, playing at onboard casinos, or pigging out on the buffet but there is a growing trend today as cruise lines organize exciting, extreme, and even outrageous group shore excursions.
Shore excursions are where people can enjoy the wow factor of their cruise and connect with new friends. Below are some of the most adrenaline crazy group shore excursions that we know of.

Riding a Harley in Alaska and the Caribbean

Cruisers who want to feel the wind against their faces while sightseeing can zoom on the road riding cool Harleys in Ketchikan, Alaska and in the Caribbean. You will need a motorcycle permit but you can also go with a licensed rider if you want to watch the Cozumel sunsets or go to the lush Tongass forest. A gang leader in a black leather jacket with tattoos all over will lead your group. Okay, it will be a local tour guide.

Holland America, Princess, and Carnival are some of the best cruise lines which can set you up with Harley shore excursions in Cozumel and Nassau all year round or in Ketchikan during summer. Fares may range from $190 to around $369.

Top Ten Facts About Human Eyes

Top Ten Facts About Human Eyes

Eyes are organs that detect light, and convert it to electro-chemical impulses in neurons. The eye is not properly a sphere, rather it is a fused two-piece unit. Complex eyes can distinguish shapes and colors. The approximate field of view of a human eye is 95° out, 75° down, 60° in, 60° up. About 12–15° temporal and 1.5° below the horizontal is the optic nerve or blind spot which is roughly 7.5° high and 5.5° wide.

Trading Cards you won’t Believe Exist

When we say “trading cards” what springs immediately to your mind? Bubble gum? Childhood?
Collectible? All of the above?

Well, if you grew up in the United States in the last 40 years, you probably answered all of the above. Trading cards have been, some say, around for 150 years, ever since some enterprising tobacco producers thought of printing collectible images on the inserts in their pouches. Since that time, trading cards have seen their popularity wax and wane quite often. They have also seen their content vary all over the map, including some rather… bizarre entries, which we would like to share with you.

If you didn’t grow up more than 15 or so years ago, uummm, you might ask your Dad if he still has his old cards, but frankly, if he had any on this list he probably won’t have kept them, or at least won’t show them. Unless of course he really wants to have to calm you back to sleep after horrific nightmares, in which case keep reading!

Dinosaurs Attack!


Topps, 1988.

If we’re gonna start anywhere on this list, this is the one that is gonna give you the best idea of why this list exists. In 1988, trading cards were still riding a periodic wave of popularity, and as such, companies such as Topps (longtime leader in the card market) were looking around for just about anything they could print and package. Taking at least some measure of inspiration from the classic card series Mars Attacks! (which we will get to a bit later) they trotted this rather bizarre series on an unsuspecting world.

It’s not that the cards themselves are all that offensive. Well, they are explicit, but in an almost cartoony way. Certainly they are not inherently worse than many of the films that by that time were quite commonplace, such as “Friday the 13”, “Nightmare on Elm Street”, or other slasher favorites. HOWEVER, those movies were pretty strictly policed as to who got to see them. These cards were primarily marketed to kids, either at newsstands and candy stores, or in the then fairly new comic book specialty shops. Parents who might have casually glanced at the pictures on the covers of the packs likely as not took them for educational cards, or at least nothing worse than reruns of “Land of the Lost”. Few, if any, parents would have ventured so far as to examine the cards themselves. One wonders what the reactions would have been. But judge for yourself:

Seven of the Biggest Beasts of All Time

We all know about the size of dinosaurs, of course, but how about a rodent the size of a bull, a sea scorpion bigger than a man, a frog as large as a beach ball, a penguin the size of a small adult human, a 1,000-pound ground-sloth-like marsupial, and a shark that may have grown longer than 50 feet and weighed up to 30 times more than the largest modern great white?

All these titans existed, although not in the same place or period.


1. Biggest Snake Fossil Found in Colombia Coal Mine

The biggest snake that ever lived (that we know about) was a massive anaconda-like beast that slithered through steamy tropical rainforests about 60 million years ago feasting on primitive crocodiles, National Geographic News reported today.

"Fossils discovered in northeastern Colombia's Cerrejon coal mine indicate the reptile was at least 42 feet (13 meters) long and weighed 2,500 pounds (1,135 kilograms)," contributor John Roach reported.

The snake would have kil*ed its prey by slow suffocation -- wrapping around it and squeezing, just like a modern python or boa. Only this snake was twice the size of today's largest constrictors.

Humans would stand no chance against one of these giant snakes, said Hans-Dieter Sues, paleontologist and associate director for research and collections at the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. "Given the sheer size, the sheer cross section of that snake, it would be probably like one of those devices they use to crush old cars in a junkyard."

Whistle While You Work: How to Be Content in Your Job

Jobs are a sad fact of life in our world. People have to work in order to earn money that they use to live and buy things which in turn helps other people make their own money to live their lives. It is a viscous cycle, but every adult or even fiscally minded teenager knows the necessity of jobs to attain financial independence or at least a sense of that type of security. However, the world is full of jobs that people do not want to do but must be done in order to have the world be the way we want it. Also, some jobs are just not the ideal choice for certain people if they do not fit their skills, personal preferences, or any other million reasons why someone would not want a job. What happens though when you need the money of a job but are not too fond of the work, workplace, or coworkers? There are a few techniques though that you can utilize which can ease the symptoms of job discontentment until you find your dream job—whatever occupation or calling that ultimate goal might be.

It Is YOUR Choice!

It sounds cliché but the fact remains firm that it is true. A huge portion of attitude (particularly when pertaining to happiness) is influenced by your own approach to the situation. Basically, feelings about a certain thing or situation act as self fulfilling prophecies for the majority of people. However, to add another cliché to the mix—it is the simplest things that are the hardest. It is difficult to focus on being happy when the things that make you happy are few and far between at your job. All you have to do though is keep your eyes on the prize—the mental prize. Find a single thing about your job that you do enjoy and try to specialize in it. Make sure to do that aspect of your job everyday and try to become perfect at it so that when others need that particular job done they come to you, allowing you to spend more of your workday doing something that does not make you want to jump off the building.

5 Little Known Facts About World War II

The history of World War II is well documented and much more is known about this conflict than any other in history due to the amount of surviving documents and, of course, living testimony. However with such a wealth of information, many of the interesting events and facts about the war are all but forgotten, here are a few examples.

1. Secret Messages from the BBC

The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) was the most listened to radio station in the world during the war. The news in particular had a reputation for its honesty about world events and millions of people throughout Nazi occupied Europe tuned in at great risk to themselves.

At the beginning of certain programs, the BBC would put in what were known as ‘message personnels’, which were coded messages to resistance groups throughout Europe. To most listeners, the messages meant nothing but to the informed few, they could mean anything from ‘blow up a section of railway line’ at a given point, to ‘a new SOE agent will arrive shortly’.

The most awaited secret message by the BBC came with the approach of D-Day and was from the first two lines of a Paul Verlaine couplet. “The long sobs of the violins of Autumn” was the first and told resistance groups to prepare, soon after, the second, “Soothes my heart with a monotonous languor”, told all resistance groups in France that the time to fight had come.
