Raw Story:

President Barack Obama ordered General Ray Odierno to shave Stephen Colbert’s head during the first of four shows in Iraq.

This was pretty funny…

Night sky of Timelapse

This video is very short, but absolutely fascinating.

The music is Chopin Piano Concerto no. 1, 2nd Movement. It ends too soon, but I liked watching it anyway.
Being able to look into the night sky makes you suddenly realize how very small and insignificant we really are in the big picture…

Under the video by 46°Project it says “In Japan of The Utsukusi ga hara”. I looked it up. I think this is where the video was shot:

The Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen Highlands area is located at the center of Nagano, in the north section of Yatsugatake Chushin Kogen Quasi-National Park. It is a flat tableland of a lava plateau that extends along the highlands at an altitude of 2,000 meters, above Matsumoto City, Ueda City, and Nagawa Town.

The view from Ogato, the highest spot in the Utsukushi-ga-hara-kogen Highlands, is magnificent. You can enjoy its 360 degree panoramic view and look out upon the Northern, Central and Southern Japan Alps, as well as the Yatsugatake Mountains, Mt. Fuji and Mt. Asama-yama.
