Really last PS here!!!

You know - I have thought about it many fact (about this theory of tamed stingrays) and that can be truth.
Mind - how much the amount of alligators attacks on humans increased in the 2000s? Why? Because they are fed by humans. This way they lose fear and respect for humans and want to eat them too! :(
Animals that can be tamed (like cats/ dogs/ dolphins/stingrays(?!) mostly like humans cause they cannot exist without human help/they receive food from humans.
Many stingrays that live in the open too. When people snorkel they feed them. Thus they are good for people.

But some don't know they can get some food from humans. Like the one that killed Irving. Maybe that's the right explanation? Or maybe not?

:roll:

You know - I have thought about it many times .

last, last, last video...

Postby LadyMacbeth » Sun May 06, 2007 10:26 pm

This is really really last video today. But I must put it here.

Watch and LISTEN TO IT (this man came back into water again!!! I cannot believe it!!! )

Shark bit off a leg

Well... some animals feel strong, are wild and eat meat - they always will be hunting for people like sharks, mostly alligators (don't feed them I beg you).
But many have natural fear against humans. Lets hope each wild animal we are meeting belongs to the second category.

Ups... I have to admit that after watching these all videos today tomorrow I will be screaming even at the sight of ...domestic cat.

:(

Read me soon :)

Hello dear Reader :)

well... it happened somewhere in the ocean.... in the very, very deep ocean. The diver was both fortunate (he survived) and misfortunate (he lost part of leg).

The most beautiful film (choosing among the films about alligators and sharks I put here) in my opinion is the movie with a wild fish (a huge shark) jumping out of the ocean to catch his prey. The movie was done from a ship-deck, from some distance and presents perfectly the majesty and glory of the ocean and the shark. What for to come nearer? :roll:

And here is another video - very funny - about dangerous anakonda. I like this video very much :)

Wild anakonda swallows little boy

See me soon :)

Today I have decided to change the object of my interests...sooo... I want to show you some plants that like meat (YES - MEAT). At the stage of evlotion the plants are too little to catch people inside but one day - who knows? When they will like eating meat more and more and there will be enough meat for them in the swamps who knows how big they can grow? :roll: :roll: :roll: Maybe the little today plants will grow as big as dinosaurs? :roll: :roll: :roll: How do you think?

All in all we are somewhere in south-eastern part of US - in swamps of Carolina state...

David Attenbourough Plats that eat meat

How do you like this story?

Hello :)
Today I am in California. I have found a really beautiful video about climbing the world highest tree.
The tree lies somewhere in one of Redwood State Parks on Californian coast (that lie nearby Redwood National Park there).

I like the video very much :)

I like when the man is speaking that plants are living organisms the same way animals are.

Sometimes I can see many trees that have been devastated. Don't harm the nature, please! Don't harm the trees, plants. They also suffer when you kill them and they die slowly because of hurt bark..

Climbing the world highest tree

See one another in California :)

PS. I hope you enjoy the video the same way I enjoy watching it :)

Hello :)
Today I want to show you a very good movie about Yellowstone National Park and its attractions.
It is really a great video.
The Yellostone is the oldest National Park in the world - as you can hear in the video below :)

Following the idea established in Yellowstone there soon followed parks in other nations. In Australia, the Royal National Park was established just south of Sydney in 1879. In Canada, Banff National Park (then known as Rocky Mountain National Park) became its first national park in 1885. New Zealand had its first national park in 1887. In Europe the first national parks were a set of nine parks in Sweden in 1909. Europe has 359 national parks at the moment.

OKI - now time for a link:
Yellowstone National Park

How was the idea of National Parks born?
Read below:

In 1810 the English poet William Wordsworth described the Lake District (rural area in north-west England) as a "sort of national property in which every man has a right and interest who has an eye to perceive and a heart to enjoy". The painter George Catlin, in his travels though the American West, wrote in 1832 that the Native Americans in the United States might be preserved: by some great protecting policy of government . . . in a magnificent park . . . A nation's park, containing man and beast, in all the wild and freshness of their nature's beauty!. Similar ideas were expressed in other countries – In Sweden, for instance, Baron Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld made such a proposition in 1880. The Scottish-American naturalist John Muir was to prove inspirational in the foundation of national parks, anticipating many ideas of conservationism, environmentalism, and the animal rights movement.

See you soon :)

PS. Ups... I forgot to add Yellowstone was set up in 1872.

And here some more things about it like :

The old faithful

mud volcanoes in Yellowstone National Park

While watching the movie about mud volcanoes you can read what are they and that their smell is really nasty ! So probably we all should be happy watching them on-line...
Soon - Europe again :)

Hi :)

Today I have wanted to write to you more about Australia but I think it is immpossible for some time :(. There are so many National Parks in Australia that probably any reasonable map of them doesn't exist at all! Who can count them all? I don't know :(.
I wanted to find some more things about eucalyptus forests there but it is so damn hard! Few things about I found.
So I have decided to make a break for a moment. More - soon.

In the meantime listen some info about Paris :) I mean - we are comming back to the REAL civilisation :)


Paris - travel guide

You can practise your English travelling virtually :). Good luck! :)

LM

PS. It wasn't easy to find this video about Paris. When you try to find something in this subject on youtube.com you can see pictures of Paris...Hilton first! :(

See you later :)

Hello :)

Today we are visiting Vienna - a beautiful European capital.

And here is the link I want to post here:

Vienna

The guy who speaks about Vienna is bit crazy and sometimes uses awful vocabulary :(. His Eglish isn't perfect but there are few things about Vienna on youtube.com. And no things in English I could find apart from this piece...

All the best :)

Hello last time today... well, English of the guy on the video above isn't perfect the same way as mine isn't ... thus now something completely different :)

I found some videos on-line about Polish (Silesian) Beskidy mountains. They aren't too high so great for starting skiers.
All in all I think I should mention them here too!
So 21 seconds in Beskidy in winter!!!

See you soon - next post will about Canada... I haven't been there yet...and you? :roll:

Hello :)

I have written that next time I will present some Canadian nature but I am still not ready.

In the meantime I have discovered another terrible video that is about one big orca attacking a woman.
I understand - wild sharks but wild orcas? :(
I have always liked watching trained orcas and you?
But after this video many of my views have been changed :( Probably only dolphins can be trustworthy... :roll:

Orca attacks a woman

Is it often when trained orcas attack?
In wikiepdia I read :Captive Orcas have occasionally acted aggressively towards themselves, other Orcas, or humans, which critics say is a result of stress. Nothing about fatal attacks on human beings but who knows what can happen in future? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Don't stress orcas too much, please (and not only orcas)! :roll:

Hi everyone who cares :)

I really wanted to post here bit more about Canada (first) and Austrialia (next) but I am still not ready. So busy days I have ... :(

So today I am going to Himalaya mountains. There are so many videos on Mount Everest on-line - some of better, others of worse quality and the one beneath isn't the worst at all. The sound is clear enough to be understood thus you can have next nice on-line English lesson :) Next travels soon :)

Climbing Mount Everest

I would like to know all proverbs connected with Himalaya mountains. If you know some - write, please :)

Hello :)

The video today will be rather short. I want to show you some sands of Sahara desert. It must be really great experience to see a desert, to walk a desert - a sand sea. I hope to see Sahara desert one day :)

Well... the video below has got only few words. Few words and lots of sand... :)

Enjoy watching :)

Hi :)

Some hours ago I was travelling across Sahara desert when, suddenly, I noticed something...green. At first I thought it was OASIS. But no!!! There were some aliens!!! Soon after I met a huge flying saucer. Russian businessmen invited me to come inside.
We took off and went... to the moon.

So I am on the moon now! :)

Here is a movie about first travel to the moon:

Landing on the Moon 1969

Our pictures will be ready soon :)
I hope you are as happy as I am :)
See you soon :)
