Want to see your future? Throw out the tea leaves and your crystal ball and go get your legs waxed.

Then send the used wax strips to this ‘fortune teller’ who has been promoting her hairy business in Brooklyn.

Psychic Kat Thek has been asking superstitious New Yorkers to send her images of their used strips, as she believe she can read their fortune from them.

Megan McIntyre, beauty editor at Refinery29 thought she would put Kat Thek to the test, and actually sent in images of some used wax strips (not hers though).

Kat told Megan the first thing she looks for in the strips was the ‘north hair’, before looking for the longest and shortest hairs snared on the strip.

Climate change shock as NASA says the Antarctic is GAINING ice, not losing it

| blog, L&B World, News | November 3, 2015

PLEASE NOTE ISSUED UNDER EMBARGO - NO USE BEFORE 19.00PM BST A glacier system on Livingstone Island located near the Antarctic Peninsula, discharging ice into the ocean. See SWNS story SWICE; Experts have discovered an ice region in Antarctica is melting so rapidly it is affecting the Earth's GRAVITATIONAL FIELD. Global warming has altered the wind direction resulting in different current patterns in the sea - shifting warmer waters towards the ice. Up until 2009 the glaciers in the Southern Antarctic Peninsula showed no sign of change, but new research has revealed ice is melting at an alarming rate. Multiple glaciers, some up to 750km in length, have suddenly started to shed ice into the ocean at a nearly constant rate of about… <a href=Read the full story

These breaking wave clouds were seen over Colorado

We know it looks like a Photoshop job, but it isn’t.

These clouds resembling breaking waves are a Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, caused when two layers of air lying close to each other move at different speeds.

In this case, the top layer is moving faster than the bottom layer, which causes a strain produced by pressure in its structure.The slower air is pushed down, the faster air begins to roll over the top and a wave shape repeatedly forms until the system normalises itself.

When a cloud is caught between the two layers, the result is these breaking wave clouds, seen at the Breckenridge Resort in Colorado.

An iPhone 6S copy is on sale for £22 in China

£22 iPhone copy

If you shelled out £539 for the new iPhone 6S, you might feel a little dismayed to learn that people in China are walking around with something that looks exactly the same. Except they only paid £22 for it.

Of course, it isn’t the same thing.

Though it resembles the iPhone in look and feel, the similarities end there.

The Chinese version, made by the Fruit Company (that’s really their name), is nowhere near as powerful as the real 6S and runs a modified Android operating system, not iOS.
