Camels are known for being able to last for weeks without water. The store a large amount of the water in their hump and are able to walk around in the desert without any water and survive. They sure are persevering animals. But, there is another animal on the planet that survives even longer than the camel. Sorry camels, you are defeated by the tallest animal of the world, the giraffe. They can be without water longer than the camels thanks to their diet. To be more precise, the acacia leaves, their favorite food, is the secret behind their win against the camel. The leaves contain a lot of water and as the giraffe can eat more than 34 kg of food each day, their water intake is very high.
Sweden is cold, especially during the winter. There is a lot of snow and ice and the temperature goes many degrees below zero. Many people run away from it, travel to warmer climate or stay where they are. In Jukasjärvi, a small little town located in Lapland, only 200 kilometers from the Arctic Circle, the snow, ice and cold is exactly what attracts people from all over the world.
The Icehotel was inspired by Japanese ice sculptors who in 1989 visited Jukasjärvi and created an exhibition of ice sculptures. One year after the artist Jannot Derid was invited to hold a vernissage which was placed in a specially created igloo located by the Torne river. The vernissage had many visitors and due to the fully booked hotel in the city, the visitors requested for permission to sleep in the exhibition area. In that point, Ice hotel was created.
The Ice Hotel is a staggering 5500 square meters and created only by using ice and snow. Every year the design of the hotel is changed and rebuilt all over again from scratch. A total of approximately 1000 tons of ice is used. The hotel is constructed in 5 steps and the first part is ready the first weekend of December and the complete hotel in January. In addition to having room for over 100 guests, the hotel also incorporates a church and a bar as well.
It is always fun to scare someone, any way that you do it, the reaction and especially face expression of the person should end up on a big poster in the living room. But, you should be careful and remember that one day it might be your turn.
Well, this might not be the best way to hit back but everyone reacts different to fear, right?
Challenges are always fun, especially when other people are doing the work and you are the one laughing. This video demonstrates what is called the “cinnamon challenge”.
