On Tuesday, the Magic Mike hunk celebrated his 36th birthday where he enjoyed several days in the woods with wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum!
But what do you get the guy that has everything?!
Instead of a fancy schmancy gift, the Step Up actress gave her man a lovely rescue horse named Cajun!
According to the sexy leading man :

The world’s first recorded image of what a dolphin sees underwater is here, and it’s astounding.
Dolphins and other mammals like bats use a form of communication and sight called echolocation, bouncing sound waves off objects to locate them, while also generating an image of the object off which the sound waves are bounced. Dolphin communication has long been a subject of study for scientists, especially in the US and the UK, and now, scientists have been able to render a 3D image of a submerged diver based entirely on one dolphin’s echolocation ability. The image is amazing.
This is how dolphins “see with sound”:
Here’s how they did it.
Jack Kassewitz of SpeakDolphin.com used an imaging system called Cymascope, developed by John Stuart Reid, which makes it possible to record and isolate the echolocation sounds dolphins make. It creates 2D images of the sounds, and then a computer program converts these 2D images into 3D.
“We’ve been working on dolphin communication for more than a decade,” wrote Kassewitz. “When we discovered that dolphins not exposed to the echolocation experiment could identify objects from recorded dolphin sounds with 92% accuracy, we began to look for a way for to see what was in those sounds.”
A dolphin named Amaya was an instrumental part of the experiment. She directed her sonar beams to a submerged diver, while a hydrophone recorded the echoes. Jim McDonough, the diver, was unable to use a breathing apparatus while swimming, because there were fears that the bubbles would warp the recording. While Amaya “scanned” the diver with her high-frequency beams, the Cymascope imprinted sonic vibrations.
The experiment was also conducted with Amaya “scanning” a flowerpot, a cube, and a plastic “+” symbol, but it’s the image of the diver that is truly breathtaking.
Kassewitz said of the experiment:
“We were thrilled by the first successful print of a cube by the brilliant team at 3D Systems. But seeing the 3D print of a human being left us all speechless. For the first time ever, we may be holding in our hands a glimpse into what cetaceans see with sound. Nearly every experiment is bringing us more images with more detail.”
Pretty extraordinary. These new developments will help scientists gain deeper insight into how underwater creatures use echolocation, and even if they are sharing their “sono-pictorial” language with other species.

It’s the dream of everyone rummaging through their impossibly cluttered attics: find a rare piece of memorabilia you were going to throw away, discover it’s priceless, and become a millionaire.
One collector in Fresno, California wasn’t exactly going through his own junk; rather, he paid $2 for a tintype photograph in a junk shop auction that turned out to be a rare photo of Billy the Kid and his gang, The Regulators, playing a leisurely game of croquet. Oh, and the photo could be worth up to $5 million.
The photo was authenticated earlier this month by a numismatics firm called Kagin’s, Inc. The 4×5 inch photo shows the infamous Billy the Kid in the summer of 1878, and it was possibly taken at a wedding.
This photo is so valuable because there is only one other known photo of the famous outlaw. That photo was taken in 1880 in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, and sold for $2.3 million at auction in 2010. Could the new photograph really be worth more than double that amount?
Billy the Kid is a fixture in Western frontier folklore. His real name was Henry McCarty, but he went by aliases William H. Bonney and Billy the Kid. He was a famous thief and gunfighter, and was captured and sentenced to death, only to escape after killing two guards.
Supposedly, Billy the Kid killed 21 men: one for each year of his life. He was finally captured and killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett at Fort Sumner in 1881.
According to the numismatics firm, it took over a year to analyze the data provided in the photo, to make sure that the photograph was authentic beyond the shadow of a doubt. David McCarthy, Kagin’s senior numismatist, said:
“When we first saw the photograph, we were understandably skeptical – an original Billy the Kid photo is the Holy Grail of Western Americana. We had to be certain that we could answer and verify where, when, how and why this photograph was taken. Simple resemblance is not enough in a case like this – a team of experts had to be assembled to address each and every detail in the photo to insure that nothing was out of place. After more than a year of methodical study including my own inspection of the site, there is now overwhelming evidence of the image’s authenticity.”
The acquisition and authentication of the tintype is so important, it’s been called ” the single most compelling piece of Western Americana that we have ever seen.”
If you want to learn more about this historical photo, its acquisition, and the road to its authentication, a two-hour documentary will air this Sunday, October 18th, on the National Geographic Channel. Kevin Costner will narrate the documentary, which will cover Western Americana enthusiast Randy Guijarro’s journey to authenticate the tintype. It will also provide a historical context of the day the photo was taken, interviews with experts, antique photography, and vintage croquet sets.
“I love handling great treasure finds!” said Dr. Donald Kagin, president of Kagin’s, Inc. “This iconic, [...]

The couple that breaks body parts together… STAYS TOGETHER?!
On the way to the hospital, the former soap opera's husband Mark Consuelos found the situation to be HIGHlarious and recorded her suffering on video!
Not cool, dude!

We're sure Jack Antonoff wouldn't oppose you going out to dinner like that, Lena Dunham!
The Girls actress showed off her seXXXy figure in some barely there attire -- literally. Like, she just straight up wore some lingerie, took a picture, and posted it to Instagram on Monday evening!
Mz. Dunham apparently loved her lingerie outfit so much, she was willing to wear just that to dinner!
She wrote after posting the photo:
"Love my @lonelylingerie and I think I will wear it to dinner with some boots & a smile because we are all very lucky to be free"
The last part of her caption sounds like a subtle ode to Memorial Day.
We are lucky to be free thanks to all the soldiers to put their life on the line for the country!
Lena just wants to exercise her freedom by wearing whatever the hell she wants to dinner!

zOMG! Where did Kevin Bacon go??
The actor is always shaking up his look to fit his next movie, but he's changed WAY more than six degrees for his latest role!
And we don't even know what it is!
The actor shared the pic (above) of himself in heavy prosthetics on his Instagram, writing simply:
"Greetings from the UK!"
But WOW that is some movie makeup magic!
