Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, recently survived a
moose attack by feigning death, "just like you learn at level 30 in World of Warcraft."
In WoW, "feign death" is a skill acquired by hunters at
level 30 that allows them to take a page from the possum playbook,
collapse to the ground, and convince their enemies -- who lose all

shouting at the gigantic creature to ward it away from his sister,
Olsen dropped to the ground, and presumably his lifebar plummeted to
Rob Dunn at GAS has "a sure-fire way to find all the differences in 'spot the
difference' picture puzzles in a matter of seconds" as long as you can cross your eyes. First, set the pictures side by side. Then:
Stare at the pictures, begin to cross your eyes.
You should see a third image appear between the two pictures.
Focus on the middle picture, adjusting the tilt of your head so both pictures line up exactly.
Once you’ve focused on the image, all the differences should look “luminescent”.
This is a very cool idea for kids: take pictures of them lying down doing crazy stunts. If you were a good photoshopper, you could make great backgrounds. The kids could make their own adventure books starring themselves. Simple, yet awesome -- a real why-didn't-I think-of-that moment for me.
