…The Pocket Shark will kill you?

Pocket Shark

The Pocket Shark is as much a self-defense weapon as it is a pen!

Designed to be “the biggest, baddest permanent marker around”, it’s made from glass-reinforced plastic, and features walls that are four times thicker than similar markers.

What this means is that it’s designed for impact, and in an emergency can become an efficient Yawara stick for driving off an attacker. Plus, the screw-top cap won’t pop off like other caps in the heat of battle.

It’s definitely more than just a regular pen, but then again, who wants just a regular pen anyways?

…The clouds glow at night under airplanes?

Glowing Night Video

On a recent flight from Amsterdam to San Francisco, Flickr user Ettubrute noticed that the night lights from the cities were flowing beneath the clouds and making them glow in a spectacular and ethereal way: “It was really seeing the impact of urban environments from a different perspective.”

To capture and share this experience, he set up an improvised stabilizer mound out of bags, pillows and blankets for the camera to sit on, and took about three hours of photographs that he condensed into about a minute of time lapse video.
