Everest. It doesn't look all that high right?

What a career. Vettori's change over the years.

French guys see how many people they can cram in a car. Not sure what else there is to say about this... Well done them anyway.

"While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed. It showed me that even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn't the end of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges." - Edmund Hillary

The future is now?

Another example of Apple leading the way into the future... Or jumping the gun and putting new tech into it's products before we need it. Depends on your point of view.

SXSW is a collection of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that happens yearly in Austin, Texas. This year they have a new gimmick. Rescue dogs for dying phone batteries...

Architecture of the future? It looks pretty amazing anyway.

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Corporate quiz. The humble pub quiz has become big business apparently.

Trivia of the future? Quiz on your phone of course.

"My idea of relaxation is not lying down by a beach. I have to move around, do stuff. Though I'm a massive quiz show person." - Daniel Radcliffe
