The clever Dave Hax demonstrates how to burn a wax candle underwater in his most recent video tutorial. This can be done by simply putting the candle into a large bowl, filling the bowl with water until it’s almost to the top of the candle, and then lighting the wick. As the candle burns from the inside, the wax on the outside will not melt due to the water keeping it cooled off.
Photographer Jose Antonio Hervás captured a beautiful composite image of a lightning storm against a backdrop of the recent “Super Blood Moon” lunar eclipse. Hervás combined more than 200 photos to create the final image which captured the eclipse over several hours from the island of Ibiza, Spain.

Rylai is a beautiful 5-month old domestic red fox with white fur who makes for a very lively companion for her family, which includes two dogs and her loving human. While life can be interesting with this adorable vulpine youngster, Rylai’s human also posted a comprehensive FAQ about the realities of caring for a domestic fox, including a bit less social time.
Rylai can’t be left alone for long periods of time. I don’t leave for long dinners, movies, or anything that takes over 2 hours and even that is a stretch. Before I go anywhere, I need to make sure that she’s getting ready for a nap so that she’ll sleep soundly in her secure kennel while I am gone.
