10 Surprising Things Found Inside Computers

In 2002, technician Brian Fox, from Brisbane, Australia, was called to a job site which was a gardening/grass-growing farm in the general area of Boonah, where the office area had some small holes in the walls, and sometimes had vermin in the office area. The office people called him one day because their computer wasn't working when it was turned on. They had heard a hissing noise when they turned it on, and he came to site. He first put his hand around the back of the computer to ‘feel' whether the cords were all in place, then he spun the computer around to find the snake! The snake is a baby red-belly black snake, which is highly deadly (when alive). It apparently crawled into the computer seeking the warmth of the computer fan after it was turned off for the day, and got electrocuted on the power source on the way out.

"The frog was significantly bigger than any of the openings in the case, so we don't know how it got in," said Richard Boyle from Sneakers Computers in Courtenay, British Columbia.

Maybe this is how the Dinosaurs died.

This russian PC modder turned his PC into a Living room! It comes with a three-seater sofa, an armchair, a pot plant, a and little lamp that plugs into one of the PC's power circuits. The bottle of Coca Cola and a copy of the New York Times paper adds the extra touch. The furniture is so intricate, the maker must have had the patience of a saint.

Found at a school.

This machine was definitely used for web surfing.

King of the Hill.

On closer inspection, turned out to be roasted ants.

A PC recovered from the Titanic?.

No ants here. The cockroaches ate them.

It's Not Meant to Be Done Like That

The 14 Best Things to Eat After a Workout

1.Egg. Protein and carbs are the two keys to a good post-workout meal. Eggs have the former covered. At just 70 calories each, eggs pack 6.3 grams of protein and are one of the few foods that naturally contain vitamin D. Also, don’t let the Rocky movies fool you; raw eggs have no advantages over cooked ones. In fact, cooking eggs allows your body to absorb almost twice the amount of protein.

2.Quinoa. For your dose of carbs, brown rice is fine, but it can’t compete with all the vitamins and nutrients found in quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”). It also contains far more protein and fiber than brown rice, and requires less time to prepare.

3.Orange Juice. Instead of a Gatorade, grab a glass of OJ. In addition to vitamin C, you’ll also get significantly more potassium than you would from popular sports drinks, which are generally intended for use during extended exercise, not after. Potassium is an important electrolyte that helps the body restore its fluid levels. Orange juice also works well for protein shakes.

4.Kefir. Kefir, a fermented milk drink made from probiotic bacteria, has been growing in popularity, and rightfully so. Just one cup of kefir contains 11–14 grams of “complete proteins,” which don’t occur naturally in the body. Dairy proteins are especially helpful for maintaining lean muscle mass and speeding up weight loss. While its tangy flavor may take some getting used to, it mixes well with fruit, cereal and whey protein.

5.Bananas. Bananas are high in the “good” kinds of carbs you need after a workout. These fast-acting carbs will help restore your body’s levels of glycogen, which helps rebuild damaged muscles. And they provide lots of wonderful potassium.

6.Salmon. Not only will you get a large dose of protein, but the anti-inflammatory omega-3’s found in salmon will help rebuild your muscles and increase performance.

7.Blueberries. These little guys give your body a huge antioxidant boost. In fact, studies show that blueberries can triple your rate of recovery after intense workouts.

8.Whole-Grain Pita and Hummus. This is a great meat-free option that’s also very easy to prepare. Made from chickpeas, hummus contains both protein and carbs, and the slow-release carbs from the pita will keep energy levels up after a tough workout.

9.Dried Fruit and Nuts. If you’re crunched for time, a handful or two of this snack delivers a quick protein and carbs fix. Soy nuts are especially helpful for building muscle; a half cup contains 34 grams of protein.

10.Pineapple. Pineapples contain bromelain, a natural anti-inflammatory that’s been proven to heal bruises, sprains, and swelling. They’re also high in vitamin C, a key component in repairing tissue.

11.Sweet Potatoes. Along with a healthy dose of carbs, sweet potatoes contain a variety of vitamins and nutrients, particularly vitamins B6, C, D, magnesium, and potassium.

12.Kiwi. Kiwis pack huge amounts of vitamin C and potassium into a tiny serving. They’re also an excellent source of antioxidants, which help combat muscle soreness. Bonus tip: Don’t throw out the skin; it’s full of even more nutrients.

13.Water. This one may seem obvious, but failure to hydrate properly is a common exercising mistake. To feel great and stay energized, you should replace every pound lost during a workout with 2–3 glasses of water.

14.Most Important: Eat SOMETHING. Your body uses a lot of energy during a workout. If you don’t replenish it within an hour or two after finishing, your muscles won’t properly recover, and all your hard work could go to waste. Even a small fistful of food within 15 minutes of working out goes a long way.

7 Coolest Tents Ever

1.Cliff Cabana Suspended Tent. The Black Diamond Suspended Cliff Cabana Tent was created specifically for climbers, but could easily be used as an adult version treehouse out in the wilderness during our next camping trip, or even in the backyard if space permits.

2.VW Camper Van Tents. Today’s modern hippie might find it difficult to procure a 1965 Volkswagen Camper Van, the iconic mode of transport for the flower power movement of the 60′s. But since they’ll probably spend most of their time just sleeping in it anyways given the cost of gas these days, this is a more practical alternative. Designed to look like a perfect 1:1 scale replica of their 1965 Camper Van, this tent is officially licensed by Volkswagen and comes in your choice of red, yellow or blue. Inside it comfortably sleeps 4 people and is divided down the middle allowing couples to have a little privacy while they’re not making war, and the design even means it’s tall enough to allow people to stand up inside.

3.Sydney Opera House-Inspired Luxury Camper. Folding into a low, sleek tow-behind package, the Opera Camper is like a pop-up luxury suite you can take with you anywhere. Elegant features include a teak veranda, two electrically-adjustable beds that can be combined to make for a larger single sleeping surface, a boiler for hot-water in the compact kitchen, a top-loading fridge with 36L of storage, a ceramic toilet, LED lighting, and a corian fountain with pull-out faucet head that doubles as an outdoor shower.

4.Inflatable Igloo Tent. For those who like to sleep under the stars but would rather not be exposed to everything that Mother Nature might throw at them, here's the BubbleTree.

5.The Car Tent. The Car Tent provides a longer-term solution to those mentioned above and is also highly portable and versatile in its applications. Sure, it doesn’t look much like a car, but it isn’t supposed to: instead, it mimics a car cover which is far more plausible so long as it doesn’t get rear-ended.

6.Orange Solar Tent. This ain’t no Boy Scout tent: the Orange Solar Concept Tent packs photovoltaic fabric, RFID-activated lighting, underfloor heating, a Wi-Fi touchscreen and induction charger.

7.I-gloobox Tent For Homeless People. Bulgarian designer Georgi Djongarski makes an unique tent for homeless people. Called I-gloobox, It is made of thick fabric, which is connected together with a band attached to the aluminum of folding. I-gloobox is effective to ward off the cold during winter, and easy to maintenance. Each pocket contains a sufficient property for the needs of these vagabonds.
