Welcome to the Friendship Forum


In the Friendship Forum you can make friends and take part in discussions about a wide variety of subjects. We invite you to know us.




We sit and we type, and we stare at our screens

We all have to wonder, what this possibly means.


With our mouse we roam, through the rooms in a maze

Looking for something or someone, as we sit in a daze.


We chat with each other, we type all our woes

Small groups we do form, and gang up on our foes.


We wait for somebody, to type out our name

We want recognition, but it is always the same.


We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes flirt

In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.


We do form friendships - but - why we don't know

But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.

Why is it on screen, we can be so bold

Telling our secrets, that have never been told.


Why is it we share, the thoughts in our mind

With those we can't see, as though we were blind.


The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell.

We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.


We can't tell real people, but tell someone we must

So we turn to the 'puter, and to those we can trust.


Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains

They are Friends Without Faces, and odd little names.

At some point or another, we've all watched "Ocean's Eleven" and thought about how we might pull off the ultimate casino heist, or have marveled at the sheer genius of the minds of "The Italian Job". But behind the glitz and glamour in innumerable Hollywood adaptations, there really are dastardly and daring thieves who have managed to pull off some of the most baffling and brilliant heists, and the Antwerp Diamond Heist is no exception. With meticulous planning and a plot that rivals the biggest blockbusters, a gang of thieves walked straight out of a vault with the largest diamond haul in history.

Often dubbed the heist of the century, the Antwerp Diamond Theft took place on an ordinary weekend in February 2003. Stretching across three blocks with impeccable security, the Antwerp Diamond Center received 80% of the world's diamond transactions. With hundreds of millions of dollars stuffed in vaults and safety deposit boxes well below the ground, it was an ostensibly impossible target. Even the mafia were said to have turned the job down because of the water-tight security.

But on Valentine's Day weekend, a gang called The School of Turin managed to baffle the entire building when they made off with over 100 million dollars. After all, the pillaged diamond vault was located two floors below the ground with heat sensors, infrared lasers, magnetic fields, alarms, motion sensors and a foot thick steel door protected by a lock with 100 million possible combinations; not to mention the patrolling security guards.

So how did they do it? Mastermind Leonardo Notarbartolo had rented a cheap office in the diamond center two years before the robbery, giving him credibility and 24-hour access to the lock boxes. Notarbartolo would obsess over his blueprinting, planning routes in, employee schedules, and security layouts among other things.

The thieves outsmarted every security measure with stunningly simple solutions. Light, heat and motion sensors were tackled with hairspray, electrical tape and even a styrofoam box on a broom handle. The magnetic alarm had also been disabled days before by one of the robbers who posed as a workman.

As for the thick steel door? A matter of luck. Someone had forgotten to scramble the code when they went home for the weekend, so the thieves were able to stroll into the vault with incredible ease. The gang even had the sense to steal the security footage before they left. It was nearly the perfect heist, but a couple of schoolboy mistakes rendered the troupe ripe for arrest. Leaving the crime scene in a state of chaos, Notarbartolo dumped bin bags with security footage, spare jewels, half drunk champagne bottles and their tools in a patch of forest off the E19 motorway.

Unfortunately for them, a caretaker stumbled across the bin bags by accident and turned the lot over to the police. Notarbartolo's half eaten salami sandwich had enough DNA evidence on it to tie him to the robbery, and the champagne bottles gave police three more perpetrators. What really baffled the crime's followers was why Notarbartolo had discarded the evidence so haphazardly.

Since 2003, others have tried to recreate the heist to no avail. Some of the School of Turin even managed to get away unidentified. To this day, the loot has never been recovered and probably never will be.

Last year, the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University published its Top 10 New Species of 2013, which included a number of amazing finds from more than 140 nominated species. Plant life was represented by the Chondrocladia lyra, also known as the lyre sponge or harp sponge due to its resemblance to the musical instruments. It was discovered off the California coast in 2012 by Welton L. Lee, Henry M Reiswig, William C. Austin, and Lonny Lundsten from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

Nestled three thousand light years away in the cosmos is the Cat's Eye Nebula, or NGC 6543. The nebula was first discovered by William Herschel in 1786, and given its strange structure and properties remains one of the most curious nebulae known to humankind.

When people think of carnivorous plants, Venus flytraps are usually what first come to mind. The Venus flytrap (scientific name Dionae muscipula) is known for its hinged, leafy "jaw" that snaps together to trap and consume unsuspecting insects. When an insect, beetle or frog touches two or more of the plant's "hairs",  the flytrap quickly hinges shut, trapping and then slowly digesting the organism.

Venus flytraps are one of the few plants that can perform rapid movements. Once the flytrap has fully digested an insect, it opens up its jaws up once more, ready for the next meal. To prevent the flytrap from wasting energy on trapping inanimate objects (like raindrops), the carnivorous plants will only close after two or more hairs are touched within 20 seconds after the first movement.

Check out this video of the Venus flytrap's impressive hunting skills:
