Magnataur Alpha (artist: Alex Horley) #CENARIUS #CHILDREN #WEEKEND Magnataur are massive creatures that live in Northrend. They have the torso of a giant attached to the body of a mammoth; like the centaur and Keepers of the Grove, they are relatives of the demigod Cenarius. They are notoriously long-lived, though lacking in patience, and are rumored to engage in cannibalism when food is scarce. They are vicious, brutal, and uncaring; only the strongest and meanest survive. Despite their hostility towards all other races, they have become strangely tolerant of the arctic kobolds, who follow the magnataurs for safety and mutual benefit during hunts. #hearthstone #heroesofwarcraft #warcraft #warcraftart #artwork #interestingfacts #lore
DID YOU KNOW? Grapes consist of about 80% of water, which makes them a low-calorie food. Grapes help to minimize the risk of heart attacks because they increase the levels of nitric acid in the blood which prevents blood clots and can also be used to help cure asthma, indigestion, migraine, kidnеy disease and fatigue.⠀ ⠀ #rosehipvital #keepdoingthethingsyoulove #fruit #didyouknow #eatclean #funfacts #fitfam #health #wellbeing #grapes #interestingfacts

Our destination this week is Turkey. Before renting an apartment or house, you should know that rents vary strongly depending on the location and facilities. Especially in larger cities, rents can be rather high for expats. The average rent for a 4-bedroom apartment in Ankara, for instance, ranges from around 1,200 TRY to 2,000 TRY and more, but Istanbul can easily be much more expensive. Most apartments in Turkey come with a living room, three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Generally speaking, these are unfurnished. Furnished rooms are rather simple with only basic equipment and furniture included. As a foreigner, you may be asked to pay your rent in USD or EUR. Advance payments of 6 to 12 months’ rent are normal.   #Googlife #letsgo #startup #nature #travelling #travel #seetheworld #travellife #people #interestingfacts #solotravel #trip #visiting #aroundtheworld #business #stpetersburg #Kazan #Russia #Moscow #Tukkey #Russiangirl

📚Интересные факты😲 ☑️В корейском языке, как и в казахском, глагол в предложении, всегда на последнем месте. ☑️В корейском языке есть буква "иын" - ㅇ . Она выполняет роль согласной, или как дополнение к гласным. В роли дополнения у неё нету никакого звука, но когда она в роли согласной, то она звучит как наша ң. То есть ㅇ=ң😉 Оказывается наши языки чем то похожи😄 #kazakhculture #koreanculture #kazakhstan #korea #southkorea #koreandance #kazakhdance #qpop #kpop #한국어 #한글 #interestingfacts #ninetyone #renzo #blackdial

Apatite- the “cheater stone”?!😯This gemstone was rarely found in jewellery stores and more valued among gemstones collectors. However it has become more popular in the past few years because in its unusual blue- green colour. The name 'apatite' was derived from a Greek word meaning 'cheat'. It was given its name because mineralogist often mistaken apatite with other gemstones that are often more valuable. As a result, apatite became unfairly labeled as the 'deceitful stone’. Did you know, that apatite is composed of calcium phosphate, which is the same material that makes up teeth and bones? 🙃 I think it’ s a beautiful “cheater” gem 💖and combined with sterling silver can make a very interesting jewellery piece🤗☀️ #gems #apatite #jewellerymaking #chainearrings #fashionjewellery #gemstonejewellery #becreative #gemstonestories #interestingfacts #gemstonemyths #trendyjewellery #interesting jewellery #gemstonelovers #giftforher #whattowear #fashion #creativeideas #etsyseller
On this particular dark and rainy Sunday in Charlotte, I thought I'd share an interesting fact about NY Real Estate. #InterestingFacts #RealEstate #Homes #DarkandRainy #HomesbySamuel
Это ОРИГИНАЛ фотографии, сделанный poдителями @daria_nenartovich . Явный силуэт человека, практически его профиля лица. Никакого фотошопа/обработки. Обратите внимание как чётко выражены его губы, глаза, нос и даже брови, не говоря о форме лица и цвете/оттенке облаков. И как после такого можно не верить в чудеса и, к примеру, в то, что люди "на том свете" не обретают новую жизнь или не следят за нами? Честно говоря, было бы интересно узнать ваше мнение, мнение каждого, кто увидел эту фотографию....возможно найдутся те, кто не увидел здесь абсолютно никакого силуэта...правда, очень интересно. Это первая фотография, от которой я жду действительно комментария каждого из вас...до жути интересно кто что думает, и кто что видит... Czy ktoś zauważył twarze człowieka na tym zdjęciu? Ciekawie poczytać komentarze każdego z Was!!!! #foto📸 #fotoes #interesting #interestingfacts #peoples #people #hello #cześć #ważne #komentarze #pilnie #comments💬 #opinie

Grove Tender (artist: Chris Rahn) #CENARIUS #CHILDREN #WEEKEND Dryads are the daughters of Cenarius. They have the torso of a female night elf and the lower body of a fawn. Like the keepers of the grove, dryads prefer peace but use violence when needed. They are curious, but only a few leave the forests. #hearthstone #heroesofwarcraft #warcraft #warcraftart #hs #artwork #lore #interestingfacts

Jude Law and Ed Harris were cast largely on the expressiveness of their eyes. They were frequently called to convey emotion without saying a word◆Most of the characters in the film are based on real people. Nikita Khrushchev (played by Bob Hoskins) was a political commissar in the Red Army who popularized and promoted Vassili◆This film is depicted as a love story between Vasily Zaitsev (Jude Law) and Tania Chernova (Rachel Weisz). The real Vasily claimed to never have had any relationship with anyone during the war◆ In the large battle scenes, it was deemed too dangerous with so many extras in a confined space to set off explosions by remote. Stuntmen were mixed in with the extras to set off the explosions by stepping on pressure plates. The large set of Stalingrad was built from scratch in Germany◆Major Konig is seen wearing gloves with the index finger and thumb on its right hand removed. This was quite common for snipers in cold conditions as it helped prevent frostbite in the hand, while allowing them to make delicate changes to their weapon and ensuring a smooth trigger squeeze◆"Enemy at the Gate" was the call for resistance in 1941 when the Nazis besieged Leningrad (now St. Petersburg, Russia). Leningrad resistance stopped the Nazis. The words "Enemy at the Gate" became a call for anti-Nazi resistance everywhere. Same words are used in the 1973 book (Enemy at the Gate: The Battle for Stalingrad) by William Craig, which also documents the real-life war exploits of Vasily Zaitsev◆Read the comments for the rest of the trivia #EnemyAtTheGates #JeanJacquesAnnaud #WilliamCraig #JudeLaw #JosephFiennes #RachelWeisz #BobHoskins #EdHarris #RonPerlman #EnemyAtTheGate #Stalingrad #Trivia #FilmTrivia #MovieTrivia #FilmFact #FilmFacts #MovieFact #MovieFacts #Fact #Facts #TheMoreYouKnow #DidYouKnow #InterestingFact #InterestingFacts #Cinephile #FilmBuff #MovieBuff #WorldWarII #WarMovie #WarFilm

I remember this happening the my first year in college (whether hot or cold water froze faster). After a half hour debate the class was nearly unanimous supporting my logic!

In Greek mythology, the titan Prometheus famously gave the human race the gift of fire and the skill of metalwork. Zeus punished him for this action by ensuring that an eagle would eat his liver as he was helplessly chained to a rock. His liver would grow back to be eaten again the next day over and over again. In some stories, Prometheus is freed at last by the hero Hercules. Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) talks about Prometheus in a deleted scene from the 2012 sci-fi film Prometheus. ☆ ☆ #Trivia #FilmTrivia #MovieTrivia #FilmFact #FilmFacts #MovieFact #MovieFacts #Fact #Facts #TheMoreYouKnow #DidYouKnow #InterestingFact #InterestingFacts #Prometheus #Prometheus2 #PrometheusMovie #SirRidleyScott #RidleyScott #Mythology #Cinephile #SpaceOpera #ScienceFiction #PrometheusEngineer #SciFiMovie #SciFiFilm #SciFi #ScienceFictionMovie #AlienCovenant #GreekMythology
Mel Gibson has a reputation for being a prankster on set. In the 2006 film Apocalypto, he added Waldo in a single frame during the mass grave scene. You would have to pause it at just the right time or watch it in slow motion to see it ☆ The picture at the bottom right of Mel with a cigar in his mouth flashes during the trailer of Apocalypto- but again, you'd have to either pause it or play it in slow motion to see it during the trailer ☆ #JaguarPaw #Waldo #WheresWaldo #MelGibson #Apocalypto #RaoulTrujillo #MesoAmerica #Mayan #MayanCivilization #Peten #Yucatan #Uxmal #CostumeDesign #CostumeDrama #PeriodPiece #PeriodDrama #Trivia #FilmTrivia #MovieTrivia #FilmFact #FilmFacts #MovieFact #MovieFacts #Fact #Facts #TheMoreYouKnow #DidYouKnow #InterestingFact #InterestingFacts #Cinephile
Berlin Cathedral is magnificent! And slightly creepy with nearly 100 coffins in the Hohenzollern crypt.

The genesis of Indiana Jones came while Steven Spielberg was making a sand castle in Hawaii. He expressed to George Lucas that he always wanted to direct a James Bond film, to which Lucas replied " I have a much better idea - an adventure movie called Raiders of the Lost Ark"●Water hoses were cut & painted to get the appearance of more snakes when Indiana falls in the snake pit. Looking closely, you can tell which are the real snakes and which are not. Many of the snakes are also legless lizards (look for the earholes which snakes do not have)●To achieve the sound of thousands of snakes slithering, sound designer (Ben Burtt) stuck his fingers into a cheese casserole. This was augmented by applying wet sponges to the rubber on a skateboard●A sheet of glass separated Harrison Ford and the arched cobra when he falls in. The snake actually did spray venom onto the glass●The giant boulder that chases after Indiana Jones at the start of the film was made of fiberglass. The sound of the boulder is a Honda Civic driving on a gravel embankment●This was Alfred Molina's big screen debut. His first scene on his first day of filming involved being covered with tarantulas●Costume designer (Deborah Nadoolman) aged Indiana's hat by grabbing and twisting it. Then she and Harrison Ford both sat on it●Read the comments for the rest of the trivia #Trivia #FilmTrivia #MovieTrivia #FilmFact #FilmFacts #MovieFact #MovieFacts #Fact #Facts #TheMoreYouKnow #DidYouKnow #InterestingFact #InterestingFacts #IndianaJones #Spielberg #RaidersOfTheLostArk #StevenSpielberg #GeorgeLucas #HarrisonFord #AlfredMolina #KiranShah #HenryJonesJr #IndyJones #KarenAllen #JohnRhysDavies #DenholmElliott #JohnWilliams #MarionRavenwood #MarcusBrody #MovieBuff
Польза и вред стакана воды, выпитого утром натощак🌊 Каждное утро я выпиваю стакан воды. Почему? Все очень просто. После длительного ночного сна наш организм нуждается в пополнении потерянной влаги, и чтобы восполнить эту нехватку и улучшить состояние здоровья, следует выпить натощак стакан чистой воды, которая принесет немалую пользу. 🔹Подготовит ЖКТ к работе, но чтобы «запустить» процесс пищеварения, лучше всего натощак выпивать стакан теплой воды, т.к. холодная вода может оказать раздражающее воздействие на слизистую желудка. 🔹Выводит шлаки и токсины, накопившиеся в организме за время ночного сна. 🔹Наладит работу нервной системы и поможет противостоять стрессам. 🔹Если вы страдаете от изжоги, то стакан воды с утра натощак поможет вам избавиться от этой проблемы. 🔹Разжижает кровь. 🔹Активизирует процессы обмена веществ. 🔹Помогает взбодриться и заряжает энергией. 🔹Предупреждает развитие артрита. 🔹Способствует укреплению суставов и хрящей. Укрепляет иммунную систему. 🔹Если же вы выпьете утром натощак стакан горячей воды, то организм очистится от слизи, а клетки насытятся кислородом и полезными элементами. Если же говорить о вреде, то его здесь совсем вообще нет!

Первый номер журнала #Vogue увидел свет в Америке в 1892 году. В момент своего появления Vogue был еженедельником, ориентированным на нью-йоркскую элиту. Журнал рассказывал о событиях светской жизни, новостях, выставках и, конечно же, о моде. В нем даже печатались литературные очерки, но этот жанр в журнале не прижился. Кроме того, в журнале печатались качественные иллюстрации и эскизы одежды. В @leninka_official мы смогли найти журнал Vogue уже на 70 лет моложе первого издания, но все же за 55 лет он сильно изменился. Мода стала привилегированной темой журнала. В 1932 году Vogue впервые разместил на обложке цветную фотографию, и с этого момента журнал демонстрирует не только эволюцию моды, но и эволюцию фотографии. Каждый новый фотограф Vogue – это такая же отдельная страница истории, как и новый редактор Vogue. Все они привносили что-то совершенно новое и становились законодателями стиля в определенный период. История журнала Vogue – это история смены целых эпох в мире моды. До 1960-х годов главной героиней Vogue была женщина 30-35 лет, так как считалось, что только к этому моменту женщина способна выработать свой индивидуальный стиль. Однако, все резко изменилось в 60-ые годы, когда на страницы хлынул культ молодости. В 70-ые годы журнал начинает выпускаться раз в месяц, и меняется его целевая аудитория. Теперь он ориентирован на самостоятельных женщин, успешно делающих карьеру. 1990-ые годы стали настоящей эпохой супермоделей, временем, когда модель стала играть особую роль. В этот период огромную популярность обрели Синди Кроуфорд, Наоми Кемпбелл и другие. В России Vogue начал выпускаться с 1998 года. #ЭтоНеСтыдноНеЗнать #журнал #история #историяжурнала #историческиефакты #факты #интересныефакты #этоинтересно #VogueMagazine #VogueHistory #magazine #magazinehistory #facts #interestingfacts
Director, Antoine Fuqua wanted to film in Africa but the film was green lit right after 911. Most people didn't feel safe venturing out into the world. Fuqua found Hawaii to be a place where everyone felt safe enough to film●The refugees in this film were real refugees living in the United States. On the DVD special features, most of them gave personal testimonials about their tribulations during the conflicts they were stuck in during the 90's. Many broke down in tears retelling the stories of how some of their family members were murdered right in front of their eyes◆The actors who portrayed SEALs underwent a two-week boot camp. During principal photography, they had to address and refer to each other by their character's name, even off camera to improve interaction●Antoine Fuqua appears briefly as the rebel smoking a cigarette in the village battle scene◆Bruce Willis said in an interview he feels that the world has not yet turned its hope towards Africa. Although they were filming in Hawaii, while doing his research he went on to say in areas where it's literally about "who has the guns" there is no hope for somebody to safely raise their family. If the people try to protest, the gorillas/rebels were sent in to cut off their hands, arms, or jaws to set an example. While filming, the inter-religious violence in Nigeria (which can be traced back to 1953) mirrored the subject matter of the movie●Read the comments for the rest of the trivia #Trivia #FilmTrivia #MovieTrivia #FilmFact #FilmFacts #MovieFact #MovieFacts #Fact #Facts #TheMoreYouKnow #DidYouKnow #InterestingFact #InterestingFacts #TearsOfTheSun #AntoineFuqua #BruceWillis #MonicaBellucci #ColeHauser #EamonnWalker #JohnnyMessner #NickChinlund #AkosuaBusia #SammiRotibi #PeterMensah #FionnulaFlanagan #JimmyJeanLouis #HansZimmer #SammiRotibi #TomSkerritt #MalickBowens #AllisonDean
