Dog Fart What a lady. To my own amazement, I was able to capture a video of my 7-month-old white German Shepherd Dog, Lucy, experiencing one of her many, MANY farts that day. I was laughing SO hard (as you can hear in the video) that I decided to share it on Facebook. It got a few likes and some great comments so I decided to post it on youtube.

The darkest building in the world Asif Khan has unveiled a pavilion at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games in South Korea, described as the "darkest building on earth". The British architect spray-painted the 10-metre-high temporary structure with Vantablack VBx2, a substance that absorbs over 99 per cent of light. Vantablack VBx2, is a sprayable version of Vantablack pigment, which British artist Anish Kapoor controversially acquired exclusive rights for in 2016. Rods tipped with tiny white lights protrude from the "super-black" parabolic curves of all four sides of the pavilion, giving the impression of stars suspended against the darkness of space. Speaking to Dezeen, Khan – who describes himself as a "closet astronaut" – said he "wanted to create the impression of a window cut into space". "It's a preoccupation of mine, trying to create experiences to better understand where we are now as humans, placing ourselves in the big picture," said Khan.
