Stunning Photos of Aurora Borealis

Imagine you are standing at a field at some remote location, when suddenly, the skies light up with moving green, twirling into shapes, a beautiful light that encompasses the whole sky above you. The Aurora Borealis is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. That is the technical explanation, anyway. But to us humans, it's just one of the most beautiful things we can ever get lucky enough to see.

How Guys select a Girl ............

A man is dating three women and wants to decide which to marry.

He decides to give them a test. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

The first does a total makeover. She goes to a fancy beauty salon, gets her hair done, purchases new make-up and buys several new outfits, and dresses up very nicely for the man.

She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

The man is impressed.

In the year 3000.
