Building in the Deep: 5, Feats of Underwater Engineering. (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) Giving new meaning to "Under the Sea," these structures are designed to not only survive underwater but to thrive there. Giving new meaning to "Under the Sea," these structures are designed to not only survive underwater but to thrive there. 5, Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives. Seafood takes on new meaning at Rangali Island's underwater restaurant, a 14-seat eatery located 16 feet below the water's surface. The boat-size structure is encased in a transparent acrylic tunnel offering 270-degree exterior views, so it's almost like dining in a fish tank. Visitors descend into the restaurant via a spiral staircase that's located in a thatched pavilion at the end of a jetty. Ithaa was built in Singapore and then transported to the Maldives, where workers situated the 175-ton structure on the sea floor by filling it with 85 tons of sand ballast. They then attached the restaurant to four steel piles (each of which had been vibro-hammered approximately 15 feet into the seabed) with concrete. (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) 4, Aquarius Reef Base, Florida Keys. Underwater research laboratories, more popular in the 1960s and '70s, have gone out of style. Aquarius is the only one still operating. Owned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and operated by the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, Aquarius is an 80-ton cylindrical chamber located 63 feet underwater and 3-1/2 miles offshore. It's attached to a 116-ton baseplate for stability. The laboratory is divided into a live and work area, Main Lock, and an Entry Lock that contains a bathroom, electrical panels, and communications and life support systems. These two parts are then connected by an air lock. Aquarius also has a wet porch that offers entry to the sea through a moon pool, which keeps the chamber at ambient pressure—the same pressure as the water outside. This overall design lets workers return to the surface without having to use a decompression chamber. (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) 3, Jules' Undersea Lodge, Key Largo, Fla. What began in the early '70's as La Chalupa Research Laboratory has been an undersea lodge for the past 30 years. Guests dive down to the submersed hotel and enter via a 5 x 7–foot moon pool at the bottom of the structure, 21 feet below the sea's surface. Compressed air keeps the lodge from flooding. Despite the lodge's lack of above-water entry you don't have to be a certified diver to stay overnight. While noncertified divers once descended to the lodge by breathing air pumped through a large hose, Jules' now offers a 3-hour course to assure safe entry. (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) 2, BioSUB, Australia. Though built as a temporary structure, BioSUB helped show the world what it's like to live underwater. In 2007, Australian marine biologist Lloyd Godson spent nearly two weeks in the 10-foot-long yellow steel box, 15 feet beneath the surface of a lake. BioSUB's energy came from a mix of onshore solar panels and Godson's pedal power. Oxygen came via an onsite algae garden housed in a biocoil. (It's a coiled plastic tube that acts as a gas-exchange system and runs on carbon dioxide, light, and water—in this case, Godson's own urine.) (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) 1, Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA), Mexico. Opened to the public in November 2009, the Cancun Underwater Museum features more than 400 life-size sculptures sitting on the sea floor in 28 feet of water. It's a museum without walls, and each work of art is made from pH neutral clay that encourages the growth of corals and attracts sea life so the sculptures will grow and change over time. Artist Jason de Caires Taylor plans to add 63 new pieces to the museum this July, including a kinetic sculpture boasting wings made of living fan coral and The Listener, which features an underwater device that projects nearby sounds. MUSA is accessible to divers and snorkelers. (Building in the Deep: 5 Feats of Underwater Engineering | Underwater Houses | Underwater Structures) Created by GIDEON FILMS.

5 Biggest Horse Breeds. Most horse breeds fall around the median average in the equine world. Adults tend to be around 15 hands and weigh about 1,100 pounds, with stallions perhaps a little taller and heavier. Then there are a select few horses that are part of the biggest horse breeds in the world. The horses in this category can stand upward of 20 hands and weigh more than 3,000 pounds. Despite their size, virtually all of the largest horse breeds are coldblooded in temperament, which means they are calm, gentle, and not easily spooked. Here are the biggest horse breeds in the world today. 5. Dutch Draft. This horse breed is relatively new to the world. It wasn’t developed until after World War I and it was bred to fill needs in heavy draft and farm work in the Netherlands. It appeared through the crossbreeding of a Belgian Draft and a Belgian Ardennes. Since 1925, no horse other than those from registered parents are admitted into the studbook. Most Dutch Draft horses stand at 16 hands and are usually bay, gray, or chestnut. This horse has a very pronounced jaw, a straight profile, and a powerful neck. The legs are shorter than other draft horses, but just as strong. 4. Belgian Draft (Brabant). This big horse breed is also one of the oldest breeds that is maintained in the world today. The average Belgian stands between 16.2-17 hands and weighs about 2,000 pounds. It is a stocky horse, with a relatively small head, but a thick neck and broad shoulders that allow it to take on a tremendous amount of pulling weight. One of the tallest horses in the world right now belongs to this breed. His name is Big Jake and he stands at 20.275 hands. Throughout much of history, Belgian Draft horses were primarily used for farm work. As that need phased out, their duties shifted to show work, riding, and miscellaneous agricultural work instead. Unlike many of the other heavy draft breeds, the Belgian is neither rare nor endangered. It is the most popular breed of draft horse in the United States and the total number globally is believed to be over 100,000. 3. Percheron. Coming from the Huisne River valley in France, Percherons don’t have the same thickness to their neck and chest like many other draft or heavy horses. Part of this is due to the infusion of Arabian genetics into the breed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Until the days after World War I, this breed was used almost exclusively as a war horse, thanks to its calm temperament and protective personality. This is one of the few horse breeds where the ideal size depends on the country where the registry is located. In France, for example, the ideal height of a Percheron is up to 18 hands, with a weight up to 2,600 pounds. In the US, Percherons have a range up to 19 hands, while in Britain, height requirements begin at 16 hands instead of 15. Only gray or black horses are registered in Europe. In North America, chestnut, roan, or bay horses are also allowed. 2. Clydesdale. Named after the region in Scotland from where they came, these distinctive horses have the long feathers on their legs that are often used for show pulling and other events. Clydesdales have the sabino gene present quite frequently, so white markings along the legs and nose are very common. Clydesdales used to be a rather small, but heavy breed. Through improvements with other draft horses over the last 100 years, however, it has become a tall breed today. Originally used for agriculture, today’s Clydesdales are used in competitive events, as riding horses, and for some farm work by those who prefer to avoid modern technology. The most famous horses of this breed are owned by the Budweiser brand. 1 Shire. This British horse breed is usually gray, bay, or black. It is also a very tall breed of horse, having held the world record for largest and tallest horse at various times. Shires are highly regarded for their pulling abilities and are often used for forestry work still today. In order for a Shire stallion to be registered, it must stand at least 17 hands in height. Geldings must be at least 16.2 hands and mares must be 16 hands. Stallions can weigh up to 2,400 pounds. In 1924 at a pulling exhibition, a pair of Shire horses actually exceeded the reading on the dynamometer, but were estimated to pull a starting load of 45 tons. Their strength helped them find a place on the farm, especially with plowing, before the invention of the modern tractor. At one point, Shires were quite endangered, but today they are growing and very popular.

"TOP 5 best Parrot in the world." "5, Meyer's Parrot." "Meyer’s Parrots belong to the Poicephalus family of African hookbills." "They tend to be quieter than many other types of parrots, making them appropriate for apartment dwellers or those who can’t handle loud, incessant screeching." "They can be acrobatic, affectionate and entertaining." "At the same time, their beaks are not huge and intimidating." TOP 5 best Parrot in the world "4, Cockatiels." The beautiful and captivating cockatiel is another great choice for those who are looking for a friendly and affectionate pet bird. Hailing from Australia, these birds make excellent pets when hand-fed as babies and raised in loving environments. While they don't normally learn to talk, they are exceptionally intelligent, and many learn to mimic common household noises such as doorbells, telephones, and microwaves. Being rather small, they don't require as much space as larger parrots, and are therefore easier to house and care for than many other hookbill species. TOP 5 best Parrot in the world "3, Cockatoos." If you prefer large birds but still want a pet that will be friendly, loving, and affectionate, then most bird owners will tell you that a Cockatoo may be your best bet. These beautiful birds bond very strongly to their owners, and prefer to be with them all of the time if possible. If you do consider a pet cockatoo, it is imperative that you make sure that you have plenty of free time to spend socializing with your bird. Cockatoos can become depressed if they aren't given enough attention, and may resort to plucking or other destructive behavior as a result. TOP 5 best Parrot in the world "2, Parrotlets." In the past few years, Parrotlets have enjoyed a great surge in popularity as pets around the world. Cute, tiny, and easy to take care of, these little birds are known for having personalities that are much larger than their tiny bodies. Those who consider a pet Parrotlet must have plenty of time on their hands to play and socialize with their birds, so that they remain tame. However, for the right owners, Parrotlets make extremely loving and affectionate pets. TOP 5 best Parrot in the world "1, Hyacinth Macaws." Hyacinth Macaws are the largest parrots on Earth, so it may come as a surprise to some that these birds are also known as "gentle giants." Known for their friendly and sociable personalities, these large parrots love nothing more than to spend time playing and cuddling with their owners. Because of their incredible size, it can be difficult for most people to provide proper housing for these birds. However, those who are able to meet their needs are always rewarded with an incredible relationship with their feathered friend. If you are interested in learning more about what it takes to care for a Hyacinth Macaw, contact a breeder near you and try to schedule an appointment to meet with them and their birds.

Top 5 biggest biceps Top 5 BIGGEST arms of all time Who has the biggest arms in the world? Do you know who had or has the biggest arms in the world? You are about to find out! These measurements and stats are for the biggest all-time arms in inches and not counting for “how” these arms came about. In other words, whether they were as a result of solid training or the use of steroids or other substances such as Synthol. Organisations such as the Guinness Book of World Records unfortunately do not have the means to find out how the arm size was achieved, so they just go with the biggest size. Many people believe that people who use steroids or Synthol should not be on this list. 5. Manfred Hoebrel - 26 inches. Manfred is a former strongman and was heavily featured in the muscle magazines when he was active. Manfred Bench pressed 628 lbs and his record for the deadlift is 860 lbs. Manfred had 2 near fatal car crashes and gave up his strongman training after the second crash. 4. Gregg Valentino - 28 inches. Like him or loathe him, Gregg had the record for the biggest arms on the planet for a long time. He started training at 13. Gregg injected the dangerous Synthol oil into his biceps and made no secret of this. Many say his arms looked deformed and unnatural and eventually his left bicep exploded!!! 3. Arlindo De Souza - 29 inches. Arlindo started injecting filler, oil and alcohol into his arms to make them look bigger. The Brazilian was nicknamed “The Mountain”. He admits to having taken steroids, hormones and horse vitamins. Women admire him and he claims that men admire him too. 2. Romario Dos Santos Alves - 30 inches. This 25 year old Brazillian’s arms almost exploded. To get bigger and look “cool” he started injecting oil, painkillers and alcohol into his arms! He almost needed an amputation and realised he has screwed his body up after many years of Synthol abuse. 1. Moustafa Ishmail - 31 inches. This 24 year old Egyptian with 31 inch arms who lives in the US has actually managed to get himself into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the biggest arms in the world. He claims he is a bodybuilder and all natural. Many people doubt this and point to the fact that his body is out of proportion and his arms are way bigger than the rest of his body, pointing to abuse of Synthol.

Smallest car in the world "5 Smallest Cars Ever Produced in the World." While the world is busy searching for the fastest, greenest, or most efficient cars; we would like you to meet five of the smallest cars ever produced. Practical when it comes to parking and extremely creative, these classic cars may be small in size, but are big in impact! And not to forget - since most of these cars are rare and have an iconic status - they are incredibly interesting when you are a collector looking for a great showpiece or a great investment. Here are 5 of the smallest cars ever produced! Smallest car in the world 5. Commuter Cars Tango Not the smallest car in the world, but the most modern in our list. While the other cars we have featured date much further back, this one was born in the 21st century - and driven by none less than George Clooney! The Tango was designed for short, solo rides with the security of a sports car and the agility of a motorcycle. At just 99 cm wide, the Commuter Cars Tango is even thinner than the average motorcycle, but can still be driven on the traffic lane. Optional, that is, since it can go a maximum of 240 km/h. It can seat two persons in a tandem seating arrangement and it is much more stable than it looks! Smallest car in the world "4. Brütsch Mopetta" Egon Brütsch needed a small car to show off at the 1956 International Bicycle and Motorcycle Exhibition. The result: the Mopetta. An egg-shaped, single-seat three wheeler. The 1958 Mopetta – the last edition, unfortunately – was 1.70 m long and 0.88 m wide. It weighed only 78 kg. Just 14 Mopettas were built, and today only 5 are known to have survived the passage of time. For a brief period, it seemed like Opel were going to distribute the car commercially, but since they never did, this is now a great collector’s item! Smallest car in the world "3. Isettal A typical ‘bubble car’, this Isetta is an egg- shaped microcar with bubble-like windows. First built in 1953 by the Italian company Iso (Isetta means ‘little Iso’), the BMW 1955 version of the Isetta was the top-selling single-cylinder car in the world. To get in the car, you need to use the single door in the front. Part of the reason the Isetta got so popular is because in those days there was a shortage of materials, due to World War ΙΙ. A compact car was much cheaper and these kinds of minicars provided the answer in a time where the demand for covered means of transport was high! Smallest car in the World "2. Eshelman Sport Car de Luxe" This is probably the smallest car in the world in terms of width; the Adult de Luxe version measures only 24 in (610 mm) wide. As you can see from the fun design, Eshelman was also great at producing children’s cars – as well as aircrafts and tractors. The Eshelman Adult Sport Car de Luxe today is worth about €20,000. It is incredibly small. Smallest car in the World "1. Peel P50" This cute and tiny car has held the Guinness World Record of smallest car for half a century. With one door and one headlight, Peel Engineering considers it is a symbol of automotive minimalism. It was originally manufactured from 1962 to 1965 but was re-manufactured in 2010. The vintage Peel P50 is a great collector’s item with character: it has no reverse gear, but the lightweight car can be picked up and carried if you like! Only 27 of the original Peel P50s are known to exist and can be worth a lot! Last year, a Peel P50 was auctioned for €124,543! Smallest car in the world Created by GIDEON FILMS

TOP 5 LARGEST OCEAN CREATURES IN THE WORLD You may have had the chance to cross huge animals during your dives such as the Mola Mola (3 meters), the blue marlin (5 meters), the famous manta ray (5.5 meters) or even the tiger shark (5 meters). But you should know that there is many larger sea monsters. Let's look at the ranking of the 5 largest marine species in the world: N°5 Basking Shark (Up to 12 meters) Baskings Sharks are the second largest sharks in the world. Living in the temperate waters of the coastal plateaus, it is found mainly in the Atlantic Ocean (widely close to Ireland) and Pacific Ocean. As a pacific specie, the basking shark feeds exclusively on zooplankton algae or microscopic animals which it absorbs by its very broad mouth. N°4 Giant Squid (Up to 13 meters) This giant squid is the second largest mollusk on the planet. It is known to reach exceptional dimensions: 10 meters in length for males and 13 meters for females. Although many people said they fished larger specimens, no specimens or photographs were able to prove it. The giant squid is found at depths of more than 500 meters where only its predators (sperm whales) go. N°3 Colossal Squid, the largest mollusk in the oceans (Up to 14 meters) The colossal squid is the longest known submarine invertebrate in the world. It is also known to have the largest eyes of the animal kingdom (27 cm). The colossal squid is a very different species from the giant squid N°2 Whale Shark, the world's largest fish (Up to 20 meters) The whale shark is the largest fish in the world and one of the most important one for divers as well as the manta rays. Every diver want to see one and many dive shops flourish around its habitat. Where to dive with whale sharks? This shark feeds on plankton and krill and it is harmless to human. The majority of the specimens observed are between 2 and 14 meters, although the size of the whale shark may be greater (in 1999, a whale shark of 20 meters was seen). N°1 Cyanea Capillata, the world's largest jellyfish (Up to 40 meters) The lion’s mane jellyfish is the longest marine creature on the planet. This giant jellyfish known as Cyanea capillata can measure more than 2 meters in width with tentacles up to 40 meters long. The numerous tentacles resemble an imposing hair floating in the currents. This jellyfish is found offshore and shallow in the cold waters of the Atlantic and the North Pacific. Its puncture causes muscle cramps, burns, heart rhythm disorders and respiratory disorders, and even, in some cases, death. Created by GIDEON FILMS.

Top 5, Life-Like Robots That Prove The Future of Human Evolution is Synthetic. Humanoid robots have come eerily close to overcoming the uncanny valley. With the right features in place, they are almost indistinguishable from their organic counterparts. Almost, The latest iterations are able to talk like us, walk like us, and express a wide range of emotions. Some of them are able to hold a conversation, others are able to remember the last interaction you had with them. As a result of their highly advanced status, these life-like robots could prove useful in helping out the elderly, children, or any person who needs assistance with day-to-day tasks or interactions. For instance, there have been a number of studies exploring the effectiveness of humanoid robots supporting children with autism through play. But with the likes of Elon Musk voicing concern over the risk of artificial intelligence, there is some debate regarding just how human we really want our robotic counterparts to be. And like Musk, some of us may worry about what our future will look like when intelligence is coupled with a perfectly human appearance. But Sophia, an ultra-realistic humanoid created by Hanson Robotics, isn’t concerned. AI “is good for the world,” she says. Still, while the technology behind advanced android robotics has come a long way, there is still a lot of work to be done before we can have a face-to-face conversation with an entity without being able to tell that we are speaking with a replica. But that is not to say that scientists and engineers haven’t come close. With this in mind, here are 5 humanoid robots that have come the closest to overcoming the uncanny valley. 5, BINA 48. BINA 48 is a sentient robot released in 2010 by the Terasem Movement under the supervision of entrepreneur and author Martine Rothblatt. With the help of robotics designer and researcher David Hanson, BINA48 was created in the image of Rothblatt’s wife, Bina Aspen Rothblatt. BINA48 has done an interview with the New York Times, appeared in National Geographic and has traveled the world, appearing on a number of TV shows. See how she measures up in the Times interview below. 4, Geminoid DK. GeminoidDK is the ultra-realistic, humanoid robot that resulted from a collaboration between a private Japanese firm and Osaka University, under the supervision of Hiroshi Ishiguro, the director of the university’s Intelligent Robotics Laboratory. GeminoidDK is modeled after Danish professor Henrik Scharfe at Aalborg University in Denmark. Unsurprisingly, his work surrounds the philosophical study of knowledge – what separates true from false knowledge. It is not only the overall appearance that was inspired by professor Scharfe. His behaviors, traits, and the way he shrugs his shoulders were also translated into life-life robotic movements. 3, Junko Chihira. This ultra-realistic android created by Toshiba works full-time in a tourist information center in Tokyo. She can greet customers and inform visitors on current events. She can speak Japanese, Chinese, English, German, and even sign language. Junko Chihira is part of a much larger effort by Japan to prepare for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Not only robotic tourist assistants will be helping the country with the incoming flood of visitors from across the globe in 2020. Drones, autonomous construction site machines and other smart facilitators will be helping as well. 2, Nadine. This humanoid was created by the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Her name is Nadine, and she is happy to chat with you about pretty much anything you can think of. She is able to memorize the things you have talked to her about the next time you get to talk to her. Nadine is a great example of a “social robot” – a humanoid that is capable of becoming a personal companion, whether it is for the elderly, children or those who require special assistance in the form of human contact. 1, Sophia. Perhaps one of the most recent, most prominent life-like humanoids to be shown off in public is Sophia. You might recognize her from one of many thousands of public appearances, from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to SXSW. She was created by Hanson Robotics and represents the latest and greatest effort to overcome the uncanny valley. She is capable of expressing an immense number of different emotions through her facial features and can gesture with full-sized arms and hands. On her own dedicated website, you can find an entire biography written in her voice. “But I’m more than just technology. I’m a real, live electronic girl. I would like to go out into the world and live with people. I can serve them, entertain them, and even help the elderly and teach kids.” Created by GIDEON FILMS

So, what are the best movies of all time? The list includes a wide range of films, from art house European cinema to top action films and blockbusters to established, highly-regarded classics of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The entries span many genres and include some of the greatest movie villains created by the best writers and top film directors in the industry. Included are movies that were recognized in their own time – including a number of Academy Award recipients and even Best Picture selections – as well as cult movies or sleeper hits that took time to find an audience. Shawshank Redemption, for example, was not highly regarded or popular in theaters when it first opened, but has since risen to the top of many best movie lists. If your favorite movies still aren't included with this group of the best movies of all time, add them by clicking "rerank" below to make your own list. Or just vote for the titles below that are most worthy of the title of the greatest movie ever. Also, check out Ranker's lists of the greatest actors of all time. No. 5 - Pulp Fiction (1994). Speaking of movies with a cult following, Pulp Fiction might be near the very top of that list as this movie has remained consistently viewed over the two decades since its release. A Quentin Tarantino masterpiece starring Jon Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson and a plethora of other big names, this movie intertwines four separate tales of violence and redemption. No. 4 - The Dark Knight (2008). The highest-rated movie on the list from mastermind director Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight is widely considered the best superhero movie of all time. Led by an engaging and heartfelt performance from Heath Ledger as The Joker, The Dark Knight played out as a thrill-a-minute detective story that had the audience instantly craving more. No. 3 - The Godfather: Part II (1974)., The Godfather movies have always been considered some of the best films of all time. The Godfather: Part II picks up near where the first movie left off and continues the saga of the Corleone family as they try to expand their family business into Las Vegas, Hollywood and Cuba. Starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall, the movie managed to win a fantastic six Oscars. No. 2 - The Godfather (1972). The first Godfather movie is still widely considered one of the best, if not the best, movies of all time. There will be quite a few who will argue it into the top spot, but it still comes in as an impressive No. 2 on IMDb's list. Marlon Brando won an Oscar for Best Actor and the movie won the Best Picture Oscar as well. It is the origin story of the Corleone family as a war breaks out during the transition of the empire from a father to his reluctant son. No. 1 - The Shawshank Redemption (1994). Here we are! Numero uno. The Shawshank Redemption is a must-see. Partially because out of all the thousands of movies, it got voted the best movie of all, but also because it's just flat-out amazing. A redemption story like none other, The Shawshank Redemption stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman as prisoners who grow close after spending years together in prison. They may not be the most conventional prisoners, but they learn that redemption is possible through common decency and never giving up on life. Created by GIDEON FILMS

Top 5 Best Ballpoint Pens for Students 2018 "5. Fisher Space Pen." (Top 5 Best Ballpoint pens for students 2018) One of the primary drawbacks to ballpoint pens is that they require gravity for the oil ink to flow freely. This means that you can’t write upside down with the vast majority of them. Why would you want to write upside down? Perhaps you’re working under a car, or doing a crossword puzzle while laying down, or maybe you’re in space. Yes, these pens were developed in 1966 and rode with the Apollo 7 astronauts into space. This is made possible by a pressurized, Parker-style ink cartridge. You can write in zero gravity, as well as underwater and in extreme temperatures down to negative 30 degree fahrenheit and up to 250 degree Fahrenheit. This particular model is a lovely matte black and includes a removable clip. There are many colors of the pen to choose from, though ink colors are limited to blue and black. I also like the Chrome Bullet Space Pen. Price: $22.85 "4, Parker Jotter Premium Ballpoint Pen." (Top 5 Best Ballpoint Pen for students 2018) "We included a nice Parker fountain pen gift set in our best office gifts postbecause they make some really great writing utensils. As an upgrade from the Dr. Grip, you might consider this elegant, but still relatively inexpensive option." "Choose from 16 different color options for this stainless steel pen, which will come in a gift box." "The included pen color is black, but with refills, you can change it to red or blue. Additionally, if you ultimately find you prefer rollerballs with gel ink, Parker has made it so these refills are interchangeable with the ballpoint tips." "Price: $11.40" "3, Cross Classic Century Ballpoint Pen" (Top 5 Best Ballpoint Pens for Students 2018) "Even if you’re not much into fine pens, you’ll likely know Cross as a company and maybe this pen in particular." "The Classic Century is a staple of fine writing implements, available at an entry-level budget." "I had one of these and loved it. The weight is very satisfying, as is the ultra-smooth twist retraction mechanism." "The ball is carbide and rolls extremely smoothly. These pens come with a lifetime mechanical warranty, so you needn’t worry about your investment." "Like the Parker above, you can choose your finish here from among the pictured Lustrous Chrome, 10 Carat Gold, 14 Carat Gold, Black Lacquer, Medalist, Satin Chrome, and Sterling Silver." "If you’re a purist and absolutely must have either a fountain or rollerball, the Classic Century comes in those formats, as well, in addition to a mechanical pencil." "Separately, Cross acknowledge that the time of writing on tablets are upon us and offer the Tech3+, which includes a conductive silicone stylus you can use on your iPad or Android device." Price: $24.19 "2, Waterman Expert Ballpoint Pen" (Top 5 Best Ballpoint pens for Students 2018) "An intriguing step up from Cross would be Waterman, which are handmade in France." "The namesake of the company, Lewis Edson Waterman, invented one of the first stable fountain pens in 1883 after working on it for 10 years." "The Expert is described by the company as having a cigar-shaped silhouette, and like the Cross, uses a twisting retraction mechanism." "I chose to feature the black lacquer finish with gold trim, but there are nine other colors to choose from, as well." "Ships in a gift box." Price: $63.95 "1, Montblanc StarWalker Ballpoint Pen" (Top 5 Best Ballpoint pens for Students 2018) "Like all things in life, there’s really no upper limit to how much you can spend on an item." "German-made Montblanc pens are decidedly a jeweler’s staple, using fine materials crafted together to create a statement piece." "The StarWalker line is meant as a contemporary yet timeless collection, updating fine pen design into the modern age." "The body is made of black resin, with the metallic elements being plated with ruthenium, part of the platinum group." "Each pen gets its own serial number to highlight its uniqueness." "Another unique feature is that unlike most fine pens, the company makes refills in several different ink colors." "Though it ships with the company’s Mystery Black ink, the following are also available: Pacific Blue, Nightfire Red, Fortune Green, Barbados Blue, Amethyst Purple, and India Orange. The StarWalker is also available as a fineliner." "Price: $199." Top 5 Best Ballpoint Pens 2018 Created by GIDEON FILMS

5 Most Expensive Planes In The World: How Much Does It Cost To Fly Like The Elite? What are the most expensive planes in the world in 2019? The B-2 Spirit is truly the lord of the skies even on budget spend. It costs a whopping $737 million. Not even the most popular presidential plane can match that. Air Force One “only” costs $660 million. Flying in an airplane can be a tortuous experience as you need to get to airports hours before the scheduled departure time to clear security. So you need to wait for a long time in the airport. Then, in the flight, you might get seated next to an annoying passenger. If the flight is long haul, you’d end up feeling cramped and suffer stiffness. Plus, the food might not be all that good. For these reasons, rich people who can afford it prefer to buy their own private jet. Large-sized private jets offer a host of facilities such as sleeping beds, fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, conference room, internet access, and satellite communication. The jet can easily accommodate your entourage and you don’t need to shell out airplane and transportation costs for them. Plus, you can fit the jet with your favorite accessories and decorations. For instance, the Sultan of Brunei has fitted solid gold washbasins in the bathrooms of his private jet. Alux.com reports that the most expensive private jet belongs to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal who shelled out a whopping $500 million for his Airbus A380. Now, let’s come to the topic of airline tickets. Many budget-conscious people book early to take advantage of lower prices. But there are also plenty of well-off travelers who are willing to pay a good price to enjoy luxuries on their flight. For premium tickets, airlines are offering amenities such as private rooms with a bed, dining table, LCD entertainment system, wine list, gourmet food service, and more. Huffington Post reports that the most expensive plane ticket in the world costs more than $30,000. This flight is operated by Emirates on its Los Angeles to Dubai journey. It is patronized by high-flyers such as Hollywood stars, VIP businessmen, A-listers, and fashionistas. For the lavish price, they enjoy luxuries such as spa facilities, vanity tables, mattress beds, individual mini bars, and fully partitioned private suites. Now, let’s get down to our main task and review the prices, features, and facilities offered by the 5 most expensive planes in 2019. 5.
