The Contrast of the Dueling Worlds is Truly Shocking

Sometimes we are truly woefully unaware of how fortunate we are to have the family we do, the life we lead, and the ability to drive forward toward our goals. Our safety, our well being, is rarely a pressing concern in our day to day lives. Yet millions of people around the world are currently in unimaginable situations, simply trying to survive. 

Turkish artist Ugur Gallenkus decided to take this duality and make it into an expression of art. Some of the images are not easy viewing so be aware before looking at the list. But it is a beautiful and painful reminder that the life we lead is not the status quo, and sometimes it is good to acknowledge our own fortunes.

Ugur himself is not even a career artist. The viral image of the Syrian boy face down in the sand shocked the white-collar worker into action. Using online courses in digital design and photography, he taught himself the skills he needed in order to create this expression of dueling worlds come together as one. The once business school graduate became a office worker by day and artist by night. Even until today, he still works at his day job while creating these stunning scenes.

Turkish white-collar worker turned photographer Uğur Gallenkuş captured the stark differences between Western life and the struggles of people in war zones around the world. The cover image is a school boy transposed over a picture of a child soldier capturing the two conflicting worlds perfectly

Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

I mean, just look at this nonsense.

I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.
