Smile you’re on ele-vision: How a camera attached to an elephant’s trunk captured amazing jungle views: “He fixed webcams to four elephants.

A Drug Deal Caught From Every Angle: “For the “streetview” feature of Google Maps, the search engine’s agents tour around city neighborhoods in a discreet van.

I think I posted this before, but if not, here is a paper version of the Enigma machine.
Hiker never gave up fight, Hilton said: “Both were with their dogs when they met near the Appalachian Trail in Union County on New Year’s Day.
