White House Panoramic Tours

Ha! Das wollte ich schon immer wissen: Wie sieht es im Weissen Haus aus!

There are 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, and 6 levels in the Residence. There are also 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 8 staircases, and 3 elevators.

At various times in history, the White House has been known as the "President's Palace," the "President's House," and the "Executive Mansion." President Theodore Roosevelt officially gave the White House its current name in 1901.

With five full-time chefs, the White House kitchen is able to serve dinner to as many as 140 guests and hors d'oeuvres to more than 1,000.

Infrared Camera Image Gallery

Thermal infrared imagers are detector and lens combinations that give a visual representation of infrared energy emitted by all objects. In other words thermal imagers let you "see" heat. Depending on the sophistication of your system thermography is capable of providing very detailed images of situations invisible to the naked eye.

Haunted Paper Toys

image

Here you'll find a variety of rather unusual paper toys, all free for you to print out and enjoy. The toys include a hearse playset, coffin gift boxes (with occupants), a little cemetery, several unusual board games, a gloomy little haunted house, a rusty old-style robot, and quite a few other dark delights. So pick out some toys, print out the pattern pages, and with a few common supplies like scissors and glue you're ready to create all these strange little curiosities. I hope you'll enjoy them all.

Eigentlich mag ich solche "Free Image Hosting"-Seiten nicht, weil man nie weiss, wie lange sie erreichbar sind - aber diesmal mache ich eine Ausnahme, denn diese Eisskulpuren sind wirklich einfach nur sch�n.
