Jason Dmitri was culling lion fish, little creatures destructive to the coral reef, when he was attacked by a Caribbean reef shark. He was about 21 metres underwater (70 feet) and he managed to fend off the shark using his spear. The shark isn’t big by shark standards, but still it must have been a frightening experience.

This outdoor cinema was built in the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt by a wealthy Frenchman who decided it would be the perfect location something out of the ordinary.

For four years in Iraq, Air Force Technical Sergeant David Simpson served alongside a German Shepherd named Robbie. When Simpson retired last year for medical reasons, the service dog was still working, and the two parted ways.

The Lion Monument, or the Lion of Lucerne, is a sculpture in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris, France. Mark Twain praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.”
