Twin sisters are born and are completely different races.
21-year-old Kylie Hodgson of Nottingham, England, is half-black, half-white. So's her partner, 19-year-old Remi Horder. Back in 2006, they conceived twins. And when the twin girls were born, one was black... and one was white. Remee is blonde and white; Kian is black.
Since both Kylie and Remi are mixed race, when the two eggs were concei
ved, the one that became Remee inherited all of the white genes from the family, and Kian inherited all of the black genes.
The odds of this happening are at least a million to one.
The Longest Truck in the World !!
It is called "Road Train" ..
A road train or roadtrain is a trucking concept used in remote areas of Argentina, Australia, Mexico, the United States and Canada to move freight efficiently. The term "road train" is most often used in Australia. In the U.S. and Canada the terms "triples," "turnpike doubles" and "Rocky Mountain doubles" are commonly used for longer
combination vehicles (LCVs). A road train consists of a relatively conventional tractor unit, but instead of pulling one trailer or semi-trailer, a road train pulls two or more of them.
On February 18, 2006, an Australian built Mack truck with 112 semi-trailers, 1,300 t (1,279 long tons; 1,433 short tons) and 1,474.3 metres (4,836 ft 11 in) long, pulled the load 100 metres (328 feet) to recapture the record for the longest road train (multiple loaded trailers) ever pulled with a single prime mover. It was on the main road of Clifton, Queensland, that 70-year-old John Atkinson claimed a new record, pulled by a tri-drive Mack Titan
ROAD OF DEATH, BOLIVIA: The North Yungas Road is a 43-mile road connecting La Paz and Coroico deep into the Bolivian Andes. The road is name by the locals 'El Camino de la Muerte' or the Road of Death and it was named the world’s most dangerous road in 1995. The road, famous for its extreme danger has a single lane width with terrifyingly drop offs, tight hairpins, narrow passages and almost no guardrails at all. The fog and rain can make visibility poor and the road surface muddy which adds even more dancer to any journey on this road. On average, there is a fatal accident every couple of weeks on this road and it is estimated that 200 to 300 travelers are killer per year on this treacherous road. Today however, the Youngas road has less traffic and it used mostly by travelers who want to feel its thrill.
The Bering Strait Bridge
A bridge planned to connect Russia and Alaska. OFF Architecture won the 2nd Prize in the Professional Category at the 2009 Bering Strait Project competition with their grandiose and green bridge-tunnel combo. The design would greatly reduce circulation between the Arctic and North Pacific Oceans, thus cooling the former and mitigating the effects of global warming. Or so they say.
In late 2011 the Russian government approved the construction of the US$65 billion Siberia-Alaska rail and tunnel across the Bering Strait.
