But, I’d rather you don’t miss out on the fun. The entire venue has sun decks, day beds, and hanging chairs where you could relax while listening to good music and enjoying the view of the Vanua Malolo on Ro-Ro Reef. Both local and international DJs play at Cloud 9 every weekend.

The Unsolved Mystery Of The Devil’s Kettle Waterfalls in Minnesota

It seems that whatever is thrown into the kettle vanishes into the abyss forever.

“All drains lead to the ocean.” I remember that Gill’s line from Finding Nemo very well. It came to my mind when I heard about the Devil’s Kettle Waterfalls in Minnesota. Of course, Brule is not a drain and Lake Superior is (yes) a lake.

I thought that by reminding myself that all rivers eventually flow into a larger body of water, I'd stop thinking about the mystery that envelopes the kettle.

But, I'm wrong.

Sørvágsvatn: A Lake Above the Ocean

It’s the biggest lake in the Faroes Island, and it’s above the North Atlantic Ocean.

Between Iceland and Norway lies the biggest lake of the Faroe Islands--- Lake Sørvágsvatn or Leitisvatn, a 6-kilometer-long body of water located on the island of Vágar.

At first glance, the calm lake appears as if it is sitting hundreds of feet high above the ocean. But, this is just an optical illusion.

The camera’s position and the angle of the shot made it look like the lake and the cliff are of the same level.

Watch Two Jetpack-Wearing Daredevils Fly Past a Jumbo Jet

Would you like to fly like a bird, next to an enormous airplane?

Flying on a jetpack all over the beautiful Dubai is already awesome on its own. But flying on a jetpack over Dubai for a flying stunt alongside an enormous A380, that is legendary.

For some of us, flying is only possible with the aid of air transportation such as planes and choppers. But for Yves Rossi and Vince Reffet, flying using only their jetpacks is very possible. And not only were these two gentlemen able to fly as free as a bird; they get to perform an aerial stunt alongside the biggest airplane in the world, the enormous passenger airplane A380 from Fly Emirates Airline.

The stunt was a part of the airline's campaign in collaboration with the Jetman (an organization of Jetpack flyers and stuntsmen) with the theme, "unguarded ambition and the vision to push boundaries beyond the unthinkable". And true enough, detailed planning and envisioning the ambitious project took three months. The plane pilot together with the Jetman participants needed to perfectly choreograph their movements down to the very last millimeter of execution, as one single mistake can be costly to the the Jetman pilots. The team even had to secure a limited airspace and do the stunt at 6:30 am where air traffic is at a minimum.
