It Was Once The Scene Of An Unimaginable, Bloody Battle. But Wait Til You See It Now.

Culture
June 6 will mark the seventy year anniversary of D-Day, when the Allied soldiers landed on the beaches of Normandy. That operation turned the tide against the Axis powers in World War II. Today, those beaches that were ravaged by war and such a crucial point in the battle are being used by tourists as a place to soak up the sun. They are such beautiful places, it’s hard to imagine what they looked liked on D-Day. This gallery by photographer Chris Helgren compares what those beaches looked like on that fateful day in history and what they look like today. The stark difference is shocking.The 2nd Battalion US Army Rangers marching through Weymouth, who needed to capture Pointe du Hoc. Chris Helgren / ReutersTou...

These sculptures are amazing. Seriously. Most of them don't even look like they're made of wood, but they all are. The creator behind these sculptures is American artist, Dan Webb.

Think vegetables are boring? That they're always the same? Well you're wrong and these vegetables are (living) proof. At some point growing up, they had a dream. A dream where they wouldn't look like just any other radish, potato, or other vegetable. They wanted to be unique (and maybe avoid our dinner tables), and their dreams came true.1.

Just like great literature, tattoos last forever. So, it's only natural that many ink-enthusiasts gravitate to their favorite authors when considering what they'd like to brand their body with for the rest of their life.  Even for the less-avid readers out there, all the best books tend find a way into our lives and make an impact at exactly the moment we need them the most. From childhood heroes to adulthood epiphanies, you probably know that incredible feeling of connecting to the words on a page.

Tattoos aren't something that people should take lightly (but unfortunately do). That's because tattoos are, basically, permanent. Unless you want to pay hundreds of dollars to get them removed, the ink you had injected into your skin is there for good. Ever get a tattoo, but regretted it after a few years?  These people certainly did. Whether it be the name of a former lover, or just a really awfully drawn tattoo, check out how these people corrected their less than stellar tattoos. Some of these cover-ups would take serious talent.That's much more impressive.I think that did her more justice.Well, that's a fancy dinosaur!She looks like a million bucks!Forget about Isaac, it's all about the
