Well, what can we say? He’s not only well ENDOWED with height, but he also is a basketball player. Being so tall, what else do you expect him to be? Yao Ming was a Chinese basketball player who played for the CBA under the Shanghai Sharks team and the NBA under the Houston Rockets.
Today, the 7’6” ex-player is a Chinese basketball executive. His height made him the tallest active player in the NBA during his final season. He broke a lot of records as he was the only player outside the US who led the NBA in All-Star votes. It’s definitely a name to remember and definitely a photo to preserve.
When it comes to art, there are no rules, and if an artist wants to use childhood symbols, let it be. Well, an artist decided to create a giant rubber ducky and set it free in a river. Whoever that artist is, please tell him that he's just brilliant! My childhood would have been so much more fun if he had created this earlier.
Kidding aside, this rubber ducky floated around the Victoria Harbor of Hong Kong to signal the Rubber Duck Tour Exhibition 2013. A Dutch artist named Florentijn Hofman created it. His art revolved around contemporary inflatable art that aims to amplify the healing and relaxing power of bath buddies.

Talk About On Cue!
Every time we look at this photo, we are still amazed and can't get enough. Unless you can do a decent pirouette, you apparently can't sit or jump with these synchronized ballerinas. Ballet is a classical dance that originated in the 15th century during the Italian Renaissance. It has, later on, evolved into a concert dance by the French and Russians and, today still fascinates audiences around the world with remarkable shows.
This highly technical form of dance has become widespread since then, and it developed a French-based vocabulary. Today, there are ballet schools all over the globe and astonishing ballerinas to admire.
Grace Under Pressure
Despite the heavy rains, this pool still managed to look "Instagram" ready. If you think that this is an impossible sight, well, that's where you're wrong. Let's break it down, shall we? The heavy, continuous rain caused the flood that you see here. The water had reached quite a height, but it didn't get inside the edges of the pool.
There weren't any strong winds, that's why the pool didn't get any debris that's big enough to be seen at a distance from where they took this photo. The water remained clear due to the chlorine. What a series of fortunate events!
