A rare Pink Hippo, Death Rays from a Vegas hotel, & The Daily Page

  • Print
You've heard of seeing pink elephants, but what about pink hippos? Wildlife photographers caught photos of a rare pink hippo in Kenya.
 
 
 
CATCHING SOME DEATH RAYS!
The "death ray." It sounds like something a superhero would shoot out of his eyes. But really, it's something that occurs at a Las Vegas hotel and has visitors burning up. The concave design of the Vdara Hotel creates a concentrated beam of sunlight when the sun hits it at just the right angle. Problem is, that super-hot beam strikes right at the pool area - cooking guests like ants under a magnifying glass. Chicago attorney Bill Pintas learned this firsthand when he was lounging poolside recently. He felt extreme heat on his head and smelled his hair burning. He ran for cover and when he returned later, he saw the plastic bag next to him had melted! Now that's a hot Vegas vacation!
