That's Peter Freuchen and his wife Dagmar Freuchen-Gale, in a photo taken by Irving Penn. Freuchen is a top candidate for the Most Interesting Man in the World. Standing six feet seven inches, Freuchen was an arctic explorer, journalist, author, and anthropologist.

He participated in several arctic journeys (including a 1000-mile dogsled trip across Greenland), starred in an Oscar-winning film, wrote more than a dozen books (novels and nonfiction, including his Famous Book of the Eskimos), had a peg leg (he lost his leg to frostbite in 1926; he amputated his gangrenous toes himself), was involved in the Danish resistance against Germany, was imprisoned and sentenced to death by the Nazis before escaping to Sweden, studied to be a doctor at university, his first wife was Inuit and his second was a Danish margarine heiress, became friends with Jean Harlow and Mae West, once escaped from a blizzard shelter by cutting his way out of it with a knife fashioned from his own feces, and, last but certainly not least, won $64,000 on The $64,000 Question. 
His third wife, Dagmar Freuchen-Gale, was no slouch either. She was a teacher, artist, editor, expert on world cuisine, and a top fashion illustrator for Vogue Magazine.

World's Best Chess Player Beats Bill Gates

What do you think happened when Bill Gates challenged the greatest chess player in the world to a match? He was embarrassingly defeated. Magnus Carlsen, 22, beat the founder of Microsoft in just over one minute of playing. Watch Carlsen's eyes as he continually stares at the chess board as though he has every move figured out almost before Gates even makes it.




RECAP: "What do you think happened when Bill Gates challenged the greatest chess player in the world to a match?" 
 
He probably lost and then drove home to his billion dollar mansion and took a bath in 200-year old champagne while johnny chessmatch went back to a studio apartment and practiced chess by himself all night with the smell of kraft dinner permeating from a hotplate.

Time To Think of a New Name.

Breathtaking Lunar Panorama



It's been more than 40 years since anyones actually stood on the moon, but thanks to the Chinese space agency and the magic of the internet, you can be virtually transported to Earths natural satellite.

This interactive panorama uses images from the Change 3 lunar lander, which touched down on the moon in December. It was assembled by photographer Andrew Bodrov of Estonia (check out the fullscreen view for the Apollo astronaut effect). You can pan and zoom over the gray landscape, spotting craters and even our blue and green home planet hanging in the sky.


Change 3 is the first probe to soft land on the moon since Russias Luna 24 touched down in 1976. The lander includes scientific instruments, cameras, and a tiny rover named Yutu after the mythical pet rabbit of Change, the goddess of the moon. The conspiracy theorists wondering why there arent any stars in the panorama should read up on how cameras and lighting work.

Have you ever seen a Raccoon Dog?


The Raccoon Dog, or Tanuki, is indigenous to East Asia and is closely related to the raccoon, thus its similar appearance. It is a very strong climber and can often be found in trees... but the most interesting fact about the Tanuki is that it has magical powers.
