Emirates A380 airbus images

Some people fly, and some people fly with style. Of course style means money but anyway, all of us which fly with low cost can at least take a peek in one of the most luxury airplanes. Its name is A380 airbus and company is of course Emirates. Airbus A380 is a double deck jet airliner and it is currently the largest passenger airliner in the world, and the ones that fly for Emirates are most luxurious in the world. So take a peek into A380.

Image of Airbus A380 in all of its glory. Four engines, and two decks. Some airports have needed to readjust their terminals to accommodate this plane. No wonder why.

Distaff images

What is distaff!? Distaff is a shaped staff used as a tool in spinning. In hand-spinning process it is a part which holds raw material like wool from which person who do the job, usually women, draws the threads. Distaff can be combined with a spindle which is been rotated by fingers, or it can be used with spinning wheel, which is kind of easier way of spinning fibres. Anyway here are ten pictures of distaffs which will make you more familiar to the subject... of spinning.

Images of lightning

Lightning is an atmospheric electrostatic discharge which usually comes with a loud noise called thunder. Lightning usually occurs during thunderstorms and it is impressive thing to see but not to feel. Lightning can be positively and negatively charged and it can carry electric current of 30.000 to 300.000 amperes, so try to avoid one if you see it somewhere near. Some people survived lightning strike, even few of them, but I would not advice you to take a chance. Nikola Tesla succeed to generate artificial lightning in 1900 using "Tesla coil". He was master of lightnings. I will present some images of him in one of my next posts, but for now lets stick to lightnings. So here are they, 10 pictures of lightnings just for you.
Starting with black and white version of lightning photo. This looks like picture from the past.
