Fantastic Natural Phenomena....!!!!

The classical natural wonders are huge and hard to miss - vast canyons, giant mountains and the like Many of the most fantastic natural phenomena, however, are also least easy to spot. Some are incredibly rare while others are located in hard-to-reach parts of the planet. From moving rocks to mammatus clouds and red tides to fire rainbows, here are seven of the most spectacular phenomenal wonders of the natural world.

1) Sailing Stones

The mysterious moving stones of the packed-mud desert of Death Valley have been a center of scientific controversy for decades. Rocks weighing up to hundreds of pounds have been known to move up to hundreds of yards at a time. Some scientists have proposed that a combination of strong winds and surface ice account for these movements. However, this theory does not explain evidence of different rocks starting side by side and moving at different rates and in disparate directions. Moreover, the physics calculations do not fully support this theory as wind speeds of hundreds of miles per hour would be needed to move some of the stones.

2) Columnar Basalt

When a thick lava flow cools it contracts vertically but cracks perpendicular to its directional flow with remarkable geometric regularity - in most cases forming a regular grid of remarkable hexagonal extrusions that almost appear to be made by man. One of the most famous such examples is the Giant's Causeway on the coast of Ireland (shown above) though the largest and most widely recognized would be Devil's Tower in Wyoming .. Basalt also forms different but equally fascinating ways when eruptions are exposed to air or water.

3) Blue Holes

Blue holes are giant and sudden drops in underwater elevation that get their name from the dark and foreboding blue tone they exhibit when viewed from above in relationship to surrounding waters. They can be hundreds of feet deep and while divers are able to explore some of them they are largely devoid of oxygen that would support sea life due to poor water circulation - leaving them eerily empty. Some blue holes, however, contain ancient fossil remains that have been discovered, preserved in their depths.

4) Red Tides

Red tides are also known as algal blooms - sudden influxes of massive amounts of colored single-cell algae that can convert entire areas of an ocean or beach into a blood red color. While some of these can be relatively harmless, others can be harbingers of deadly toxins that cause the deaths of fish, birds and marine mammals. In some cases, even humans have been harmed by red tides though no human exposure are known to have been fatal. While they can be fatal, the constituent phytoplankton in ride tides are not harmful in small numbers.

5) Ice Circles

While many see these apparently perfect ice circles as worthy of conspiracy theorizing, scientists generally accept that they are formed by eddies in the water that spin a sizable piece of ice in a circular motion. As a result of this rotation, other pieces of ice and flotsam wear relatively evenly at the edges of the ice until it slowly forms into an essentially ideal circle. Ice circles have been seen with diameters of over 500 feet and can also at times be found in clusters and groups at different sizes as shown above.

6) Mammatus Clouds

True to their ominous appearance, mammatus clouds are often harbingers of a coming storm or other extreme weather system. Typically composed primarily of ice, they can extend for hundreds of miles in each direction and individual formations can remain visibly static for ten to fifteen minutes at a time. While they may appear foreboding they are merely the messengers - appearing around, before or even after severe weather.

7) Fire Rainbows

A circumhorizontal fire rainbow arc occurs at a rare confluence of right time and right place for the sun and certain clouds. Crystals within the clouds refract light into the various visible waves of the spectrum but only if they are arrayed correctly relative to the ground below. Due to the rarity with which all of these events happen in conjunction with one another, there are relatively few remarkable photos of this phenomena.

Punjabi ABC...

This one's not just for Punjabis but for all those who have faced

A is for Aiscreame

B is for Backside
, and it has nothing to do with your butt. It is an
instruction to go to the rear of a building, or block, or shop or

C is for Cloney
and its not a process for replicating sheep, nor is its
first name George. It is merely an area where people live e.g.. 'Defence Cloney'.

D is for the proverbial 'Dangar da Puttar'.

E is for Expanditure
, the spending of money

F is for Fackade
, and even though it sounds like a bad word it is
actually just the front of a building (with backside being the back, of course).

G is for Gaddi
, and the way a Punjabi can pilot his gaddi puts any F1
driver to shame. (If the Grand Prix does come to Delhi there's no way Hamilton ,
Alonso or Kimi can overtake Balvinder, Jasvinder or Sukhvinder's taxi.)

H is for 'Ho Jayega Ji'
, and the moment you hear that you have to be
careful because you can be reasonably sure it's not going to happen..

I is for Intzaar
, and to know more about it see P.

J is for Jutt
, which every Punjabi seems to be.

K is for Khanna, Khurana
, etc, the Punjabi equivalent of the Joneses
(e.g.'Keeping up with the Khuranas ji').

L is for Loin
, the king of the jungle.

M is for 'Mrooti'
, the car that an entire generation of Punjabis were in
love with.

N is for 'No Problem Ji
.' To find out how that works see H.

O is for Oye
, which can be surprise (Oyye!), a greeting
(Oyy!), anger (OYY!) or pain (Oy oy oy...)..

P is for Punj Mint
, and no matter how near (1 km) or far
(100 km) a Punjabi is from you he always says he'll reach you in punj
mint (5 minutes...).

Q is for Queue
, a word completely untranslateable into Punjabi.

R is for Riks
, and a Punjabi is always prepared to take one
(risk), even if the odds are against him.

S is for Sweetie,Sunny, Simmi and Sonu
,who seem to own half the cars
in Delhi . (The other half by their Pappas - like 'Sweetie de Pappa di Gaddi')

T is for the official bird of Punjab : Tandoori Chickun

is for when you lose your sex appeal and become 'Uncul-ji'.

V is for VIP phone numbers
@ Rs 15 lakh and counting..

W is for Whan
, as in 'Whan are you coming, ji?'

X is for the many X-rated
words that flow freely in Punjabi

Y is for 'You nonsanse'
, when anger replaces vocabulary in a shouting

Z is for Zindgi
which every Punjabi knows how to live to the fullest.
