Isn't This Cool? (Thursday Thirteen #11)


Photobucket


Now over where I live is summer and it is pretty hot. Where some of you live, maybe summer too. Those of you who love the beach might love this too. So to those who love the beach, this is all for you.

1) Here's a nice piece of engineering and construction and the locale is JAPAN.
2) Here's the exterior shot of the building. Note the surrounding area . . . mountains, sea shore, golf course, residential area.
3)

4) What do you think is inside this building?
5)

6) It's the O C E A N D O M E

7) The roof is retractable.

8) The SURF'S UP . . .rain or shine!
9)

10) When the roof is closed, you still get blue sky and puffy white clouds.....
11) Imagine a beach where the sky is always blue, it's never too hot or cold, the water isn't filled with salt and pollution, and the surf is always perfect - welcome to Ocean Dome, the world's only indoor beach.

12) Ocean Dome has its own flame-spitting volcano, crushed white marble "sand", and it also boasts the world's largest retractable roof, providing a permanently blue sky.

13) Temperature, wind and humidity are closely controlled to provide an ultra-safe "sea-side" experience. Every hour, the volcano erupts and the hi-tech wave machines start up, starting a few minutes of sanitized surfing.

Entrance cost is US $50 per person, which seems especially expensive given that there is a free, natural beach only 300 meters away.

Monday Manic #8


Photobucket


Today's Theme "One Thousand (1000)" can really mean so many things. It can mean money, number of objects, number of a house, number of a street. You can go on and on without end. Here's my share for this theme

  • 1000 (one thousand) is the natural number following 999 and preceding 1001. The letter A does not appear in the English spelling of any positive integer lower than "one thousand".
  • In mathematics, the decimal representation for one thousand is: 1,000 — a one followed by three zeroes, in the general notation ; 1 × 103 — in engineering notation, which for this number coincides with ; 1 × 103 exactly — in scientific normalized exponential notation ;
  • In time, a millennium has 1000 years. The year 1000 is the last year of the first millennium AD.
  • In popular culture - In art, 1000 paintings has been a popular internet art project by Swiss artist Sala. In music, Thousand is a 1993 techno single by Moby.
  • A grand is a slang term in English for one thousand units of a given currency. Several grand can be shortened to G's.
