By the way, you knew that I had such a fine rumor that they could hear the steps of a person for several kilometers? And they hate foxes! Scientists argue that this is due to the fact that the foxes love to steal someone else’s prey. So if the lynx notices next to the fox, then after successful hunting is specially waiting for it. If the cheating is trying to make prey, trot attacks. At the same time, she never eats a dead fox, but just leaves her on the spot. Maybe.
There are women in our selets
Admire the selection of photos of women of the Soviet era. These pictures were made in the 1950s, and the girls were imprinted not only during skiing, but also at work. Traditional profession, the ladies are not always "female" – there is, for example, a portal and tower crane machinist, combiner and shutterman of the ship. By the way, many of these pictures are the works of photographers of the legendary magazine "Spark" Mikhail Savina and Fritlanda seeds. For their lives, they made thousands of frames to capture everyday Soviet life. Earlier, "my planet" talked about cases when women choose unusual profession for their sex – for example, became a toroidor or samurai.
There are only two places in the world, where the sun is not sitting on the horizon for many days, but only revolves around it. This is the South and North Pole. It is on the southern pole of scientists who took off a unique video. In total, the shooting lasted five days, and then the resulting video accelerated from 120 hours to two minutes. The fact is that due to the tilt of the planet’s axis, only one sunset and one sunrise can be observed in this place of the globe. After the sun goes out (a polar day begins), it will only circle across the sky and rise above until the middle of the summer, and then start slowly go back to the horizon. So, if you like to watch long sunsets and sunrises, you should surely visit this place! See also the photo project on "My Planet" dedicated to the conquest of the Southern Pole in 1910-1913.
