This is unbelievable and I would not have believed it if it was not sourced in #Guinness. That was one very busy couple in the bedroom. 67 of the 69 children born were said to have survived infancy. There are some small villages who have less people. 👫👪👬👭👯
By his first wife:
4 x 4 = 16
7 x 3 = 21
16 x 2 = 32
27 births 69 children
By his second wife:
6 x 2 = 12
2 x 3 = 6 ---------
8 births 18 children

PEACHES WITH PANTIES:
I'll say what we have all been thinking: a fuzzy peach remarkably resembles a derriere. Recently, fruit vendors in China decided to capitalize on the anatomical similarity for a holiday.
The peaches are being sold in celebration of the Qixi Festival, which is a romantic holiday comparable to Valentine’s Day. #madeinchina #creative #peach #panties #fruit
If you were walking through a field during the winter and happened upon a beautiful clearing, full of dazzlingly white blooms, you would probably think they were late-blooming flowers. Upon closer inspection, though, you'll realize that maybe they aren't flowers at all. A frost flower is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance. If you come across one – be careful! Rather than attempt to pick it up, if you have a camera or a phone with you take a picture instead. Frost flowers are incredibly delicate and will more often than not shatter when touched. More beautiful pictures of these flowers can be seen here - http://www.kuriositas.com/2012/12/frost-flowers-natures-exquisite-ice.html?m=1 #frost #flowers #pretty #beautiful #interesting #unusual #coolstuff #ice #white #plant #winter #autumn #gorgeous #phenomenon #notwhatyouthink #nature
I would love to have a chandelier like this hanging above my dining room table. Talk about a conversation piece. This piece is called "Porca Miseria! Chandelier." It's made of broken plates, bowls, cups, vases, forks, and spoons. Only 10 of these lamps are produced annually, as four builders must work on each one for almost 5 days, carefully breaking plates with a hammer or dropping them on the floor to determine the arrangement of the final design. The title, a common Italian interjection similar to “damn,” expressing irritation, surprise, annoyance, or incredulity, evokes both the frustration of breaking a dish and the release that comes from breaking many of them. #italian #dishes #porcelain #art #decor #vent #chandelier #dining
During the raining season, water turn this Bolivian salt flat into the world's largest mirror. It's been called "the border between heaven and earth". The mirages from the sky's reflection create a sense of infinity or walking among clouds. You can only get to this location via hot air balloon. #wow #beautiful #incredible #amazing #clouds #earth #water #mirror #nature #bucketlist #placestosee #bolivia
You thought you left behind popularity contests when you graduated high school, right? Think again. The World's Most Exclusive Website lets you "in" to their virtual club on levels based on your number of followers on Twitter.
I didn't even get through the front door because I don't have a verified account. "Verified Twitter accounts are reserved for the famous or otherwise socially significant," the site informed me, and redirected me to a "less discriminating" site - Olive Garden.
To get past the first page, you need to have a verified account, obviously. The second page requires 5,000 followers. It also tells you who else has been able to access that level so far, so you can compare your popularity. You know, just for that added kick in the gut. ("What do you mean @xyz has more followers than me?")
Door three requires 25,000 followers. You're stopped at Door four unless 100,000 people care about your Tweets. The fifth entrance means you need to have half a million followers to proceed through. The secret entrance of door six must have made Ryan Seacrest (who posted photos of his progress) really excited that he has more than a million people hanging on his every Tweet.
But the stone door frame on the seventh page is where he got stopped for lacking the required five million followers. If you're not a celebrity, don't worry.... apparently the terribly exclusive site is also terribly easy to hack. You can view every room (even the ones no one has accessed yet) without so much as ever Tweeting a single character. I have a feeling that the "easy to hack" part was deliberate, too. Why design all those levels if no one will see them? This way, they get even more publicity. #crazy #whatwillpeoplethinkofnext #twitter #coolstuff #interesting #socialmedia #exclusive
If you thought that riding a swing is for kids, think again. Here is the wildest swing in the world. A single swing that will hang you over the edge of the world. This swing has no safety measures and is called the ‘Swing at the End of the World’. Deep in the Ecuadorian wilderness is a seismic monitoring station known as Casa del Arbol or "The Treehouse" because it is simply a small house built in a tree used for observing Mt. Tungurahua, the active volcano in the near distance. While the simple wooden room is a sight to behold, the real attraction is the crude swing hanging from one of the tree's skinny branches. With no harness, net, or any other safety feature the swing (itself nothing more than a thick stick suspended by two ropes) arcs riders out into the void over the canyon. #placestosee #amazingplaces #laststop #swing #treehouse #Eucador #awesome #photooftheday #picoftheday #noway #nope #risk #lastride
Rainbow Grapes!!! It is not a hybrid or any species of grapes. They get their colors during a process called veraison that occurs when they start making sugar and are known for their incredibly delicious flavour. #rainbow #sweet #grapes #sugar #fruit #delicious #juicy #hiddentreasures #ripe #tasty #wine
Too cute! Fresh out of the water, the newborn pup rolls itself in sand to protect itself from the blazing sun wearing the natural world equivalent of SPF 50 #sunscreen. #seal #beach #sunbathing #sand #babyseal #sealion #pup
Well my Friday is over. Been stuck on this bridge for almost an hour. It's so bad that people have now turned off their car and just standing in the middle-of-the-road or on the side talking. #traffic #friday #ugh #ineedadrink
Well you all have seen my Granddaughter Rylee grow up from the few pictures I have posted. This little girl is the love of my life next to her mother. She is so happy, well-adjusted and smart. She truly needs to be on the big screen because she is hilarious and so personable #yayababy #rylee #granddaughter #babypicoftheday #toddler #curlyhair #photooftheday #kidstar #babygirls #mommysbaby #besthair #beach #sand #cutepicoftheday #cutekids #caliliving
Homemade ice pack- 1 part alcohol to 3 parts of water. It gets really cold but never hardens so you're able to bend it. Add food coloring to make them more fun. If it's going to be for a child/teen then please make sure you monitor the bag at all times since it contains alcohol or better yet there is a recipe online for ice cream packs.
Substitute the alcohol and use salt. It will make a slushy mix that stays soft.👍 Make it with 3 parts of lemonade and one part of vodka, you can drink it afterwards. 😜
Other important points to keep in mind: ✅Don't use high percentage alcohol. ✅Food coloring in the mix helps to identify what is in the bag so there are no mistakes with identifying the contents. ✅Don't over fill and always, always double bag because the mix can eat thru some thinner bags.
✅Make SURE you don't put it on bare skin... It gets cold enough to cause damage to the skin. ✅You should put one bag in another with opposite ends meeting just in case of a leak! ✅Always use a thin cloth barrier between the ice pack and skin to keep it from freezing the skin and causing damage.
✅Add a wee bit more alcohol to make it softer. Use the green rubbing alcohol because it smells good.
The #Lamborghini #Aventador is one of the world’s fastest #supercars. It is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine which gives a 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217mph. The customised car has scissor doors and a glow-in-the-dark paint job that makes it look like something out of the film #Tron. Its owner is 24-year-old Nasser Al-Thani, a member of Qatar's ruling family. #caroftheday #coolpicoftheday #cars #needforspeed #lifestylesoftherichandfamous
Bioluminescent Plankton in Jervis Bay. #sand #beach #plankton #ocean #night #bioluminescence #water #dinoflagellates #glow #waves #marine #sea
Bioluminescent plankton wash up on a beach in Jervis Bay (Australia). Bioluminescence is used by living things to hunt prey, defend against predators, find mates, and execute other vital activities. It is truly a surreal and breathtakingly beautiful experience. The real biology to explain the bioluminescence is a chemical reaction called chemiluminescence where a creature produces light within their bodies. Certain types of chemicals react to produce energy which excites other particles through vibration generating light which causes the glow. The group of chemicals involved to make plankton glow are broadly termed luciferins. The light is produced by a series of oxidation reactions set off by a catalyst called luciferase. This condition documented by scientists as "Milky Seas Effect" is extremely rare and has been observed only 235 times since 1915.

Although you can live without a cellphone, it has become a basic part of today’s society. If you want to stand out in a crowd, you either have to spend a couple bucks on the hottest new ring tones or spend $1,300,000 on your phone. The Diamond Crypto Smartphone comes complete with a platinum body with 50 diamonds in it, 10 of which are a rare blue diamond. The navigation key and logo are made of 18 carat rose gold and it is capable of e-mail, internet, WAP, JAVA support, SMS, MMS and has a media player. #cellphone #phoneporn #picoftheday #photooftheday #diamonds #smartphone #blingedout #bluediamonds #18carat #expensive #filthyrich #wasteful
People used to think that almost nothing lived in the dark #ocean depths. There's little or no light and it's really cold. But now we know that over ninety percent of all #marine animals live in the deep sea! Many of these animals are #bioluminescent — they produce their own light. Flashlight Fish not only carry their own light, but they can turn it on and off at will. That's because they have a special flap of muscle that can be raised and lowered like a window shade to cover the pockets of glowing bacteria beneath their eyes. Small prey are attracted to this pale green glow. The light also helps #flashlight #fish see and catch their prey. If spotted by a predator, flashlight fish can quickly "turn off": their lights or use a flash-and-run technique in which they shine their lights and then swim away while their enemy figures out what just happened.
Enough already 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😩I hate the "business" part of the NFL. These are tough decisions that hurt but the Saints had to make the moves. Nowadays, it's not about love or adoration. It's about cap space and results. #backtobusinessbaby #saintsfan #whodat4life #saintsnation #neworleanssaints #byebye
Psychotria Elata or Hooker’s Lips: The Most Kissable Plant
These gorgeous pair of red, luscious lips belong to a plant known as Psychotria elata, a tropical tree found in the rain forests of Central and South American countries like Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama and Ecuador. Affectionately, Psychotria elata is called Hooker’s Lips or the Hot Lips Plants. The plant has apparently evolved into its current shape to attract pollinators including hummingbirds and butterflies. According to Oddity Central, the bracts are only kissable for a short while, before they spread open to reveal the plant’s flowers. #amusingplanet.com #nature #lips #redlips #plantlife #plants #hooker #flowers #kissable #lucious
