It’s been almost a year since John Chen was appointed to save Blackberry and it’s clear that his grand plan has, at least, stopped the company losing money hand over fist. In the Canadian outfit’s latest three month report, it reveals that losses have been trimmed from$4.4 billion last year to a much more manageable $148 million.

You walk outside your front door to take a closer look and immediately your skeleton jumps out of your skin from the most disturbing sight you’ve ever seen! Spiders!

Well, naturally spiders aren’t the biggest fans of detrimental water levels either so they took to the hills. Millions of spiders had to migrate to higher ground to escape the flooding. This caused an extreme population of the evil little creatures to congregate in one small area. Take a look at these horrifying images that are causing nightmares around the world. This is why you want to stay far away from Australia. Check out these unbelievable photos: Read more [+]
