Back in January 2010, I posted Warner Amazon Expedition 2010: In Search of Yacumama. I received the following update correspondence yesterday:
5 Largest Helicopters
It was 1860 when first time the word helicopter was used by a French inventor, who came up with a small, steamed powered model. After 17 years, in 1877, first unmanned helicopter rose to the height of 43 feet triggering the start of an amazing journey of helicopter development.
Here is the list of world’s largest helicopters
Mil V-12 was the largest helicopter the world has ever seen. Soviet Union developed this giant machine in 1960s and only two prototypes were produced before the project was trashed for being too big to be used in practical situation.
6 Coolest Locks Ever
Keep “unwanted customers” from running your bar dry. Just enter a three-pin combination, then turn the top clockwise until the lock expands and is tight. Re-enter the combination and turn counter-clockwise to release. Keep the kids and help from helping themselves.link
Another Tank from the Lake
Yet another tank was recently extracted from one of the lakes near St. Petersburg. There are plenty of tanks left since WW2, each year a few of them are being pulled out by different enthusiasts. This one is particular by it’s model “BT” which was translated as “Quick Moving Tank”. It had very narrow tracks so it had to move only on good roads, and the tracks could be completely removed so that it could roll on the rubber coated inner wheels on the good surfaces when army had to relocate quickly and there were good roads available.

There are really some places where death is illegal
Prohibition of death is a political social phenomenon and taboo in which a law is passed stating that it is illegal to die, usually specifically in a certain political division or in a specific building.
The earliest case of prohibition of death occurred in the 5th century BC, in the Greek island of Delos; dying on Delos was prohibited on religious grounds.
Today, in most cases, the phenomenon has occurred as a satirical protest to the posture of the governments of not approving the expansion of municipal cemeteries with no more space for additional corpses. In Spain one town has prohibited death, in France there have been several settlements which have had death prohibited, whilst in a town—Biritiba Mirim—in Brazil, an attempt to prohibit is currently taking place.
Additionally, there is a traditional prohibition on recording deaths in royal palaces in the United Kingdom, for rather different reasons.
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.
