The world ended here.

I saw this today and I just had to share it.  I copied this post from: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/03/end-of-the-world-cinema/  It is pretty strange to think this has just been sitting there in the desert all these years!  Makes ya wonder what will be left sitting like this, when man finally destroys the planet.  At any rate, enjoy, please leave a comment and rate the post 🙂

Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.

Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater that was never used. You can still see it on Google Maps.

For generations camels have been helping man to do much more than cross a desert.  They have been pack animal, guides,escorts and field hand.  They also produce one of the most nutritious milk on the planet!  Camels are one of the most diverse and adaptable animals, they can live absolutely anywhere from the Sahara Desert to the Himalayan mountains!
