So much power. This is oddly satisfying to watch. With a bite force of 8,100 newtons it's really no wonder that hippos can absolutely crush watermelons.

Mind-Bending Images That Aren't Photoshopped (75 Images)

These images seem too perfect, too well timed, or too logically impossible to have been done without Photoshop. Some of them have just one out of place thing like a remote control or a bowl that is at such an awkward angle that it just looks like it was digitally inserted. Perspective is a weird beast, and can be used to make mind bending images. Seriously, weird perspective can throttle your mind.

Creative Tumblr Thread Imagines Earth As Space Australia from Alien Perspective

It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
