  • 4th of July, Then and Now (Infographic)

    This summer, the United States celebrates a big birthday – 237! To commemorate this milestone, CheapOair has put together an Infographic that brings us back to colonial times, and gives us a little deeper dive into the logistics of Independence Day. We took an in-depth look at population trends, first and foremost. Since the signing of the Declaration of Independence the United States has seen a population increase of 12,548%! That’s over 52% per year. Ever wonder how long it would take to get to our top destinations in 1776? The predominant mode of transportation back in the day was horse and buggy. At an average speed of 8-10 miles per hour, a 3 hour flight from NYC to Fort Lauderdale turns into an excruciating 13 days. Forget about that 5 hour flight to Vegas – you’d be in that buggy for 26 days! Almost a month! Let’s not forget about price, though. An average ticket to San Francisco today will set you back about $500. However, in 1776, you’d be spending a mere $17.25. Can you really put a price on convenience, though? Well maybe you can. In 2012, over $200 million worth of fireworks were imported from China more »

  • Colorizing History [43 Photos]

    When looking back at history we only have a view of how things were in black and white, until now.

The following collection in fascinating but please keep in mind that many of these photos depict scenes of war and they could be considered a bit graphic but that is part of history so view at your own discretion.

  • Nike’s Kevin Durant KD VI Shoe is About to Invade Street Ball Courts Everywhere

    KD VI, Kevin Durant’s sixth signature shoe. Designed for Durant’s evolved style of play, the shoe’s striking silhouette combines with technical innovations to complement Durant’s controlled footwork. Prepare for every little twerp at the park to have a pair of these on just in time for summer. Braking your ankles left and right, dribbling circles around you, then through your legs, but your too winded to care. It’s all good, my Fila Grant Hill 2′s have survived this long, I don’t need new shoes to make me feel younger. I need my youth back to make me feel younger. I digress, The KD VI is a simple, lighter than lightweight shoe designed out of simplicity with thoughts of a modern wristwatch in mind. “When Kevin and I first discussed his sixth shoe we wanted to create a simplified design that was bold, beautiful and told a story,” said Leo Chang, Nike Basketball Footwear Design Director. The first colorway derives from that of Durant’s home town Seat Pleasant Activity Center, his home away from home. The rec center’s trademark teal and yellow colors were the inspiration for the release of the shoe.

  • The Most Dangerous Job in The World Will Have You On The Edge of Your Seat

    If you’re afraid of heights in any way, this video is definitely not for you. The job of a radio antenna technician is scarier than you think. Mostly because its a free climb. That’s right, because of the strenuous climb, OSHA rules allow for this, which means it’s actually safer for the climber to climb freely, rather than stop every few feet and readjust his harness. The climb is 1768 feet up. That’s higher than the Empire State Building and as you’ll see in the video, as the heights climb the method of climbing gets more dangerous. My hands are still sweaty.

  • 100 Years of Change: 1913 – 2013 (infographic)

    People are constantly comparing today with the days of old. How much things used to cost. How much simpler everything was back then.

  • Adidas Springblade

    Running will never… look the same. A shoe six years in the making and is suppose to deliver one of the highest energy returns to your body, in turn making you jump 30 feet in the air.

  • The Counsellor (Trailer)

    Ok, we’ll be honest. We’ve played this video a few times now and still have no idea what it’s about. Friendship? murder? Cheetahs? It doesn’t matter. The cast includes Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem. Not enough? The screenplay is written by Cormac McCarthy and Directed by Ridley Scott. Still not enough? Our office rumor mill thinks it’s the pre-prequel to Aliens or the Sequel to Gladiator. Our office rumor mill has some imagination.

  • Paris Like You’ve Never Seen It Before [Timelapse Video]

    Paris is often called “La Ville-Lumière”or the “The City of Light,” a name it owes first to its fame as a center of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment, and later to its early adoption of street lighting. A Russian videographer named Kirill Neiezhmakov produced this incredible timelapse that gives us a tour of Paris like we’ve never seen it before. There are few cities in the world more impressive looking than Paris at night so once you’re done with the video check out Paris at Night [40 High Quality Photos].

It is basically the complete opposite of the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling race. The sprint took a grueling seven minutes to complete and Planica offered the steepest slope in the race’s history.
