How about the image of the mile high tennis match pictured below? Real or fake?

Andre Agassi and Roger Federer
Now this one definitely looks fake right? Actually.. no it is real! In February 2005 as a publicity stunt Andre Agassi and Roger Federer played a friendly match  on a helipad of  Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai that was converted to a tennis court for this occasion.

As Andre Agassi said of the experience of playing tennis on a platform several hundred feet in the air:

This was an absolutely amazing experience. When you first get over how high you are and start playing it’s an absolute joy and it was a great time. I had no issues with the height as long as I didn’t have to bungee jump off the side.

Origins:   The above-displayed photograph and accompanying information were taken from a 3 February 2006 New York Post article. The critter pictured is Herman, a German Giant hare belonging to German breeder Hans Wagner. The extraordinarily large hare weighs 17 lbs., measures 17 inches high on all fours, and stands over three feet tall on his hind legs.

According to the Post article:

To find out how unusual Wagner’s wabbit is, The Post contacted Six Bells Rabbitry in Arvada, Colo.”That’s a huge animal. That’s amazing,” said breeder Michelle Jones. “In the States, it’s hard to get them past 12 to 15 pounds.”How did German Giant get so big?”I don’t feed him an unusual diet,” said Wagner. “He goes through more than his brothers and sisters, but he eats the same food mix. His favorite food is actually lettuce. He can never get enough of it.”Herr Hare is unusual in another way, he noted. “Unlike some other rabbits I’ve had, he’s really a gentle character — a gentle giant.”
