Alnwick Gardens $7 Million Dollar Tree House

When you’re royalty, money is truly no object and this $7 million dollar tree house proves it. Located adjacent to Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England, Alnwick Gardens has been the site for its Duke and Duchesses relaxation since the 1700s. Over the years it began to fall into disrepair. This changed in 1997 when Duchess Jane Percy began revitalizing the grounds. Among the improvements was beyond any child’s wildest dreams. The Gardens now boast perhaps the most impressive, out of this world tree house which even features its own restaurant and bar. But it is not just a playground for the nobles, visitors are welcome to eat, drink, or meander around its deck, watch a movie in the cinema, or participate in one of the many yearly activities that are open to visitors. No word on the maximum capacity for sleepovers.

10 Daredevils Who Aren’t Afraid of Heights. Or Dying, Apparently.

Our natural instincts are a good thing.

Look Out For These Deadly Fish the Next Time You Soak Your Feet

Planning a summer trip to the ocean soon? Well, be careful where you step! One of these five deadly fish might be waiting in the the water for you!


Though extremely dangerous if not prepared by a well-trained chef, the pufferfish is considered a delicacy in many regions. But be warned, one mistake in preparation can send one into a coma or even death. Its deadly tetrodotoxin causes numbness in the mouth and lips, vomiting or paralysis. It is typically found in the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States.

Watch your step the next time you soak your feet. The stonefish, named because of its ability to camouflage itself on the sea floor, where unwitting bathers become subject to severe pain. Sticking to freshwater, or even the beach isn’t fool proof however – stonefish are sometimes found in river beds and can live up to 24 hours without oxygen.

Some species of this typically Indo-Pacific venomous fish have begun making their way to the Caribbean and United States east coast. Efforts have been made to control, or even eradicate, the lionfish in these areas but officials are not confident this will happen. Avoid reefs and corals for the time being as this is one of their preferred habitats.

Like the stonefish, a large part of the stingray’s danger lies in its ability to conceal itself on the ocean floor. Most attacks are very painful but normally not life threatening. They are found in all types of aquatic environments throughout the world.

Boxfish (trunkfish)

These species are closely related to the pufferfish, though are less dangerous. They are normally found in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. When threatened, the boxfish excretes toxic mucus to ward off any nearby predators.
