Troll A is the tallest structure ever moved by mankind.

The Troll A platform has an overall height of 472 metres (1,549 ft) and weighs 683,600 tons (1.2 million tons with ballast).

Phajaan – “Crushing” an elephant’s spirit

The Phajaan process originated in hill tribe communities in India and South East Asia, located in areas where elephants naturally occur. The ‘ceremony’ of Phajaan is said to have originated from the belief that the tribe’s shaman can separate the spirit of an elephant from it’s body, in effect driving the willful and wild spirit out of an elephant and leaving it under the control of it’s handlers, or mahouts.

In reality, however, the Phajaan has nothing to do with the seperation of spirit, and everything to do with torturing an elephant until it is so fearful of it’s human captors that it will do anything to avoid being hurt again.

Here are the images of the training of wild elephants that are caught for the tourist trade.
