  • The amazing thing about sports is the ability to push yourself to another level every time you perform. Records keep getting broken year after year, new tricks appear out of nowhere: fans are still glued to their screen year after year and are amazed by what they see. Here is a collection of some amazing feats and tricks in various sports and activities that are truly amazing each one on their own.

    I know it's been a while since I've posted. But I bring you some hilarious stuff. Apparently Jim Carrey has fallen in love with the red headed hotty known as Emma Stone. In a video that he posted on his video blog (vlog??), he confesses his love to her and envisions a life in which they would have chubby freckled kids.

    Check out the video on his website since I can't embed it in here and lemme know what you think of his confession.

    Most people have played a variety of sports throughout their lifetime. Some were competitive like football, basketball, volleyball or even handball. Some were for fun like dodgeball and beach volleyball or even beach football. One thing is sure, there is always a way to twist every sport and make it extreme and somehow more fun. Here are a few of those.

    1. Trampoline Dodgeball

    2. Soap Football (amateur video)

    3. Sepak Takraw (Foot-Volley Asian style)


    Ramadan is known in Egypt for it's all around spirit. You have series going on all day, new talk shows, and best of all the great commercials. You've seen the new Nokia ads in an earlier post, and I will keep posting the good ones as I see them. The brilliance and humorous nature of these commercials are unmatched.

    Here we have a male undergarments commercial. They compare underwear in general to your friends, with some you like some you need to change, some who stick to you, some who support you and solve your problems.

    Enjoy!

    Probably some of the most prestigious things to own when you have a lot of money include a large collection of cars, a private airplane or two, many houses scattered over many continents and some exotic pets. But today, the competition and bragging rights lies into who has the best yacht? Roman Abramovich can probably boast as to have one of the biggest yacht collections, including possibly the largest private yacht ever ($1.2 Billion) , can be seen here. But come on, that's just too much! Doesn't he get lost and lonely in that humongous ship? Rumours are he even installed a so-called anti-photo shield for his privacy. Well, good for him, But I personally didn't like his yacht. So i went on a small search to find what I thought was a better yacht, and I found it.


    The Wally Hermes Yacht, aka WHY, is just a beauty. For a modest fee of $150 Million (in comparison to Abramovich's yacht) you get this piece of art. It's fancy, it's moder, it's unique. Oh ya, and it comes in 2 sizes!


    I am currently accepting partners and donations in order to reach the $150 Million. For more information on this sexy thing, check their website here.

    I'm pretty sure you've teared up a few times while watching commercials on TV. Don't deny it, we all have seen that one commercial that made us weep like a little baby. But I think I've found one that'll make you wale, whimper, and bawl your eyes out!

    Check out this ad for TVC, a thai life insurance company, called the science of love. So emotionally touching that it deserves an oscar.

    Now excuse me as I wipe away my tears...sniff!

    Ramadan in Egypt is always awaited for many things: decorations in the street, lots and lots of yummy food, mosalsalat addiction and finally Advertisements! This series of Nokia ads promoting the "new" dual- sim card fone attempt to connect the regular workers with the advancing social media... For an added bonus, wait for the last line: "Nokia, connecting beoble!"

    "Hashtag beid, Hashtag Beid!"


    "Warda wala alb??"








    If your into weird things, then you most definitely have tried some exotic foods in your lifetime. However, have you ever tried a dish that comes with a dancing squid?

    Mind you the squid is already dead and not alive, yet when his cells are mixed with the soy sauce, a form of reaction happens that causes his muscles to jerk; just like when your leg kicks up during a reflex test.

    Nevertheless, would you still eat it after it has danced for you beyond the grave?

    Ladies! Have you ever thought of joining the army? Well now's your chance.

    Vladimir Putin, Russia's ex-president and current prime minister, is recruiting. If you are smart, beautiful, and don't mind parading around in a bikini  and wash cars in a cheap attempt to garner votes for your political idol, then you're perfect for the job. Apply within!

    Check out this reportage about Putin's Army and their car wash. The awkward ending is more than justification for watching it!

    Also check out after wards the ad for Vladimir's army of vixen's.




    Everyone probably heard about the attacks in Norway in a Camp through a bomb and a firearm rampage. One must think what will happen to the man who did all this? Well, apparently the sentence for murder in Norway is 21 years. Fine no problem, it should be life for the number of lives he took, but I'll let this slide. What's outrageous though is the prisons they have! People would usually pay to stay in a place like this! As the presenter said, dorms aren't as spacious and studios aren't always as advanced! Talk about this being a punishment and a place where a person is supposed to reconsider what he did!

    This Acapella group decided to dedicate an entire medley to the music they listened to during their youth/university years. They put together a collection of songs that most of us remember and love. For added fun, wach the bearded guy in the middle at the bottom. Specifically, watch how he cant snap his fingers.

    We've all heard the stereotype that women are bad drivers. Hell, I've even heard some people praise Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving and claim that it was the best move the country has made. And while there may be some studies that claim that women may be more accident prone than men on the road, concrete evidence has yet to be found, until now!

    A woman has recently been found guilty of the most expensive car crash ever recorded causing an estimated $1,125,000 in damages. Yes you read right, that's one million one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars. What did she crash into you ask? 5 of the most expensive cars found on this earth. And where? Right in the middle of Place du Casino in Monaco; talk about being embarrassed.

    She was apparently trying to navigate her way through a tight opening when she scratched her first victim a Mercedes S-Class ($125,000). Panicking, she then followed to ram into a Ferrari F-430 ($235,000). An Aston Martin Rapide ($250,000) and a Porsche Carrera 911 ($135,000) were part of the collateral damage.

    Finally, to add insult to injury, the driver was driving a Bentley Azure ($410,000), which needs it's bumpers and left side door replaced, and on top of that she was a BLONDE!

    Good luck shaking this one off ladies!

    A friend of mine has been involved in a few bands making their original tracks and I have to admit their coming up with great acoustic tunes! This is the first track of a new band called Free Electron and it's quite a catchy song! Visit their Facebook page if you like it.. (here)

    Sometimes some goals struck as so hard that they are talked about for a long time after the game. And once the talk calms, all it takes is one person mentioning it, "do you remember Rooney's overhead kick?" and the rest of the room just smiles "ohh yeaaahh". Well these goals are usually transformed into different artistic forms.. Here's one of them.


    Ever wondered about the true story behind Batman's origins and his efforts to rid the world of evil? Well look no further!

    It is one thing to take a car and tweak it to perform a little better, but it's a completely whole new world when you take the latter and tinker around with it to blow your mind.

    That is exactly what Mercedes plans to do with its all new 2012 C-Class Coupe. Being the only car in its class to get the Black Series treatment, this baby sure does pack a nice punch with the knock-out made possible by having the car's weight reduced by 44 pounds, its exterior uniquely modified, and its interior equipped with race inspired bucket seats.

    Moreover, under the hood, this baby will sport a 6.2L V8 engine giving you 510hp at the beck and call of your lucky toes that'll allow you to intimidate the most bravest of passengers.

    As for price, nothing is set in stone, but since it is a Black Series it is expected to cost a bit more than its C63 AMG sibling. But until they get their pricing ducks in a row and have this monster terrorizing your streets next January, you can check out her pics after the break.
    Millionaires are in a constant battle to see who can outdo the other: have the biggest house, have the biggest yacht, have most cars, most planes, the only of a kind and so on. However, when you already done most of the list above, you need something new and unique to leave a mark behind, literally.

    Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family has done so much. He has over 200 cars stored in a pyramid as a public museum at the Emirates National Auto Museum (Link), which by itself is crazy given the abnormality of the cars in there. (A more detailed post about this will follow shortly.) However, more recently, he decided to do more. Here I present to you Futaisi Island which he inherited from his father, in red next to Abu Dhabi.



    If you zoom in closer, you notice that there is something different about this island.



    No this is not an image alteration done on photoshop.



    He had his name "carved" (if one can call such an enormous project carved) into the island. And this picture is oriented to the north. Yes, he even did it upside down!



    These letters are around 1km high and so deep you can see a waterway formed in the first 3 letters! This can now be seen from space it seems, or more realistically on Google Earth and by planes.

    This 90's game show called "Hollywood Squares" was famous for having many famous actors and comedians as part of it. Concept is easy: you have 9 celebraties each sitting in a square, and 2 contestants have to play X O. You choose a square, the celebrity answers a question and you either agree or disagree with the answer given. If you are right, you get the square.

    In this episode, Gilbert Gottfried, one of the funniest people to be a regular on this show, is the last available square. The person who gets this right wins (5squares vs 4 squares). And this happens, perhaps one of the funniest moments on any TV game show ever!

    Some illusions require you to look elsewhere to miss the trick. This person simply plays with the vision with some very well designed illusion tricks!

    This is just insane! I'm working on finding out who this person is and why the hell I've never heard of him before. For now check him out mashing up 39 songs live!

    Here is last sunday's episode of Top Gear. In it, they pit the Mclaren MP4-12C against the Ferrari 458 Italia.
    While Jeremy Clarkson does come up with a few good points about how the Ferrari is a little more fun to drive, the Mclaren MP4-12C turns all that into non-sense once you push her on the track.

     Josefine Oqvist - Sweden

    Well if you haven't noticed, the Women's FIFA world cup is going on right now and I don't blame you for not knowing since it isn't as publicized as its male dominated version (you know, the one that happened last year). Nonetheless, it still is an exiting event, not to mention that it is one of the few sports that has some of the best looking women in the business. And trust me it'll get a lot more views now that some female footballers started swapping jerseys with others. Leave it to Sweden's Josefine Oqvist to take this to the next level!

    So here's your reward for being a loyal fan of the game, and further proof that the women of FIFA are some of the best out there.

    Good luck girls and go Germany and Sweden!

    Check out the video of the jersey swap and then check out some pictures of the players after the break.


    Kisses are used for making up and making love. But did you know that they can also be used for making art?

    Natalie Irish, Houston Texas' self proclaimed artistic prodigy, has perfected a method that allows her to paint portraits through the sole use of her lips. She achieves her inspiring works of art by kissing the canvas and varying the pressure of her lips creating the sublte nuances needed to create her large paintings.

    While the process may seem like it is painstaking, the outcome is greatly satisfying.

    So check out this video of her painting a portrait of Marilyn Monroe. And check out her website at natalieirish.com for more of her work.

    Now kiss me!

    You read write, it's Porsche Cajun, and it's gonna be as seasoned as they come.

    Although not as spicy as its more popular and larger sibling the Cayenne, the Cajun aims to deliver the same punch in a smaller, more agile, package.

    It will be borrowing many elements from its cousins in the VW family, notably the Q5, as Porsche will be using Audi’s Q5 chassis and 3.0L V6 and 2.0L TFSI V4 engines to power the Cajun with 300bhp and 250bhp respectively. Moreover, a 3.6L V6 turbocharged engine pumping out 350bhp and 3.0L V6 TDI diesel engine will also be offered down the line.

    The car looks like a Porsche and most definitely will run like one. It will come in a 5 door configuration, but talks of it being offered in a 3 door configuration are also out there.

    This car also opens a whole new segment for Porsche pushing families that loved the Cayenne but wanted something smaller to continue considering Porsche for their cross-over SUV purchases. Furthermore, it they do produce a 3 door model, Porsche will be going head to head with the only other luxury 3 door cross-over SUV out there: the Land Rover Evoque.

    I for one am looking forward to this car.

    This may be one of the most awesome short movies I've seen in a while. Watch as the plot thickens!

    Ever wonder why you are never satisfied with what you've got?

    And whenever you do get that thing you've always wanted, you find that the gaping hole of need in your heart is ever growing.

    Remember when a house with a 2 door garage was the ultimate dream? When all you wanted was to have kids, a VW Jetta, and build that backyard pool.

    Yet now a VW Jetta won't do, and that house with the 2 door garage is deemed as a consequence of failure. Since our conception of perfection, or rather our aspirations, have been morphed by the thing we worship the most these days: Our TVs. More accurately, by the programming rubbish that is fed to us through them on a daily basis.

    Therefore, check out this highly engaging, entertaining, and educational clip as it punches away at TV and how it has ruined our aspirations.

    Enjoy!

    A long time ago, there was a circuit called the Migla Millia. On it cars raced day and night. Fast they were and quickly they swerved around every corner of its gravel track. Yet one car held and still holds the highest average speed record for that track (166 Km/h) and it is the famed 328 by BMW.

    This year marks the 75th anniversary since the 328 rolled out of the BMW factory walls. In homage to this great automobile, BMW has designed the 328 Hommage: a concept car celebrating the acclaimed history of the 328.

    It is powered by a 3.0L six cylinder engine. While this is all we know of the insides of the 328, its exterior design reveals to us the beauty and vision of BMW's design house.

    It's been 50 years since Aston Martin and Zagato, an Italian design house, teamed up together to give us the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato. And now, in honor of their 50th anniversary they present the world with the Aston Martin V12 Zagato displayed at last week's Concorso d'Elegenza Villa d'Este.

    It is an astonishing automobile with a design that stays true to its 1960s predecessor. The body was hand made since it was not possible to build it using machines with each aluminum sheet designed seperately and then molded together to form the panel. The wing alone is made up of seven pieces.

    Underneath its beautiful exterior. the Zagato maintains the Aston Martin's V12 6.0L Engine churning out 500 bhp and 420lb/ft of torque.

    Check this wonder out and it's predecessor in the pictures to follow.

    Cookies by Douglas Adams (author: "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy")
    This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person was me. I had gone to catch a train. This was April 1976, in Cambridge, U.K. I was a bit early for the train. I'd gotten the time of the train wrong.
    I went to get myself a newspaper to do the crossword, and a cup of coffee and a packet of cookies. I went and sat at a table.
    I want you to picture the scene. It's very important that you get this very clear in your mind.
    Here's the table, newspaper, cup of coffee, packet of cookies. There's a guy sitting opposite me, perfectly ordinary-looking guy wearing a business suit, carrying a briefcase.
    It didn't look like he was going to do anything weird. What he did was this: he suddenly leaned across, picked up the packet of cookies, tore it open, took one out, and ate it.
    Now this, I have to say, is the sort of thing the British are very bad at dealing with. There's nothing in our background, upbringing, or education that teaches you how to deal with someone who in broad daylight has just stolen your cookies.
    You know what would happen if this had been South Central Los Angeles. There would have very quickly been gunfire, helicopters coming in, CNN, you know. . . But in the end, I did what any red-blooded Englishman would do: I ignored it. And I stared at the newspaper, took a sip of coffee, tried to do a clue in the newspaper, couldn't do anything, and thought, what am I going to do?
    In the end I thought, nothing for it, I'll just have to go for it, and I tried very hard not to notice the fact that the packet was already mysteriously opened. I took out a cookie for myself. I thought, that settled him. But it hadn't because a moment or two later he did it again. He took another cookie.
    Having not mentioned it the first time, it was somehow even harder to raise the subject the second time around. "Excuse me, I couldn't help but notice . . ." I mean, it doesn't really work.
    We went through the whole packet like this. When I say the whole packet, I mean there were only about eight cookies, but it felt like a lifetime. He took one, I took one, he took one, I took one. Finally, when we got to the end, he stood up and walked away.
    Well, we exchanged meaningful looks, then he walked away, and I breathed a sigh of relief and sat back. A moment or two later the train was coming in, so I tossed back the rest of my coffee, stood up, picked up the newspaper, and underneath the newspaper were my cookies.
    The thing I like particularly about this story is the sensation that somewhere in England there has been wandering around for the last quarter-century a perfectly ordinary guy who's had the same exact story, only he doesn't have the punch line.
    (Excerpted from "The Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time" by Douglas Adams)
    Well apparently this has been a growing concern in the United States and has therefore led to the Center for Disease Control to come up with the following:
    Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse

    The following was originally posted on CDC Public Health Matters Blog on May 16th, 2011 by Ali S. Khan.
    There are all kinds of emergencies out there that we can prepare for. Take a zombie apocalypse for example. That’s right, I said z-o-m-b-i-e a-p-o-c-a-l-y-p-s-e. You may laugh now, but when it happens you’ll be happy you read this, and hey, maybe you’ll even learn a thing or two about how to prepare for a real emergency.

    A Brief History of Zombies
    We’ve all seen at least one movie about flesh-eating zombies taking over (my personal favorite is Resident Evil), but where do zombies come from and why do they love eating brains so much? The word zombie comes from Haitian and New Orleans voodoo origins. Although its meaning has changed slightly over the years, it refers to a human corpse mysteriously reanimated to serve the undead. Through ancient voodoo and folk-lore traditions, shows like the Walking Dead were born.

    In movies, shows, and literature, zombies are often depicted as being created by an infectious virus, which is passed on via bites and contact with bodily fluids. Harvard psychiatrist Steven Schoolman wrote a (fictional) medical paper on the zombies presented in Night of the Living Dead and refers to the condition as Ataxic Neurodegenerative Satiety Deficiency Syndrome caused by an infectious agent. The Zombie Survival Guide identifies the cause of zombies as a virus called solanum. Other zombie origins shown in films include radiation from a destroyed NASA Venus probe (as in Night of the Living Dead), as well as mutations of existing conditions such asprionsmad-cow diseasemeasles and rabies.
    The rise of zombies in pop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse could happen. In such a scenario zombies would take over entire countries, roaming city streets eating anything living that got in their way. The proliferation of this idea has led many people to wonder “How do I prepare for a zombie apocalypse?”
    Well, we’re here to answer that question for you, and hopefully share a few tips about preparing for real emergencies too!

    I am not a touchscreen user myself, but I have experienced frustration whenever I had the opportunity to use one. The keys are too small, clicking two letters at once, getting the wrong key to ultimately have a word unrelated to the intended one. As the web has proven, Auto correct is a complete failure that attempts to go around the problem without solving it.

    One main idea come to mind to this innovative group of people: The original keyboard was invented to accommodate two hands. What if a new keyboard is needed for touchscreen devices with enough space to barely fit a single finger? And so was born The 8pen. It uses a constant touch of the surface using a single finger, with continuous motion to choose letters. This may sound hard at first, but once you watch the preview, you quickly see that it's very easy to pick up. My favorite part is the fact that you can have predetermined sentences saved as easy to input symbols on the screen.

    If any of you gets the opportunity to try it out, do let me know what your first impression was and if you've gotten used to it.

    What a fitting subject for the blog's 100th post.

    I would like to present to you Alaa Wardi, he is a Jordanian musician that lives in Riyadh.

    He has been uploading videos of his music to his Youtube channel and is gaining some traction, as he is quickly becoming one of the top followed artists on Youtube in the Middle-East.

    His style will strike you as foreign at first, but you'll soon feel a sense of familiarity once you soak in his wonderful Arabic lyrics.  Moreover, the harmonies he pulls off in his all vocal songs (i.e. all instruments are replicated by him) will leave you feeling all warm and cozy on the inside.

    So check him out and support him in every way you can, since such a talent needs to be fostered rather allowed to fade into the blackholes of our minds.

    Enjoy his wonderful song and check out his youtube channel ==> Here

    How stupid can a cat get?? Sorry all cat lovers out there, you might find this cute, I just laugh at this...

    All the organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was the one in charge.

    "I should be in charge," said the brain , "because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen."

    "I should be in charge," said the blood , "because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you'd all waste away."

    "I should be in charge," said the stomach," Because I process food and give all of you energy."

    "I should be in charge," said the legs , "because I carry the body wherever it needs to go."

    "I should be in charge," said the eyes, "because I allow the body to see where it goes."

    "I should be in charge," said the rectum , "because I'm responsible for waste removal."

    All the other body parts laughed at the rectum and insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight.

    Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, the legs got wobbly, the eyes got watery, and the blood was toxic. They all decided that the rectum should be the boss
    .......


    The Moral of the story? Even though the others do all the work...


    The asshole is usually in charge


    He single handedly toppled the dance world with his peculiar style that was based on africanism, dancehall, and just good ol' love. Now he takes it one step further with his new single "Far L'amore" which literally means making love and is a remix of an old classic by Italian sex symbol Rafaella Carra. So just sit back, enjoy, and tap your feet to this celebration of sex.



    I'm sorry, but I just can't get enough of this duo. Also, this video was too cute not to post!

    Watch Alexa as she sings Home once again with her dad at a local radio station all the while eating a whole orange.

    Warning: You may fall even more in love with this little bundle of joy!

    But wait, before we hand it to you, are you a man or woman?

    I wonder if the new BB goes well with my bra?
    We all knew that this was going to happen soon.

    With its market share waining and constantly threatened by the other fruity named phone (Apple) and the friendly green robot (Android), Blackberry needs to up its game as to not loose more ground to these heavyweight and still growing contenders.

    Its last attempt at saving grace was, how should I put this, a mild flop, with the Torch (9800) barely lighting the way to success and Cristal popping in the champagne room. While the use of Blackberry's OS6 on the Torch was a good move forward for the company, its lack of coherent user friendliness and potent apps gave the phone a hard time when competing against Apple's iPhone 4 and Android phones. Couple the latter with an under-performing processor that was struggling to run all the bells and whistles of the system and you were in for a lackluster experience characterized by frequent freezes and slow execution.

    Nevertheless, it looks like blackberry learnt its lesson and is now coming in swinging ... hard!

    Four new phones have been leaked over the past couple of weeks with the news saying that Rim will be launching the Bold Touch (9900), the Torch 2 (9810), the Storm 3 (9860), and the Curve Touch (no model number yet) soon. And boy do they all look promising.

    As you can tell by their names, all these phones will be touch enabled and will look to utilize OS6's full tactile potential. Moreover, they also come with the upgraded Blackberry OS (OS6.1) which offers better features and performance and is claimed by the company as a giant leap forward when compared to its predecessor; with the experience said to be amplified through the use of more powerful processors (i.e. most of the above mentioned phones will have 1.2Ghz Qualcomm chips).

    Moreover, they all look fascinating with clean cut lines, mouth watering screen resolutions, and the steel/leather combo that Blackberry has come to be known for. However, as promising and pretty as they may be, only time will tell if these new phones and their new configurations and features will catapult Blackberry back to being the drug of choice when looking for a connection high.

    Following the break are some specs, pictures, and videos of the newly leaked phones.

    Every year it comes and it goes and every year I get all exited like a little school girl who just got a pony for her B-day!

    Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, the Jordan Rally is upon us once again.

    As the forth stage in the World Rally Championship (WRC), the only one located in the Middle-East, and the third stage of the Middle-East Rally Champion (MERC), the Jordan Rally offers its participants a chance to challenge their skills on its hard and highly technical all gravel tracks all the while attracting drivers the world over such as France's Sebastien Ogier (a returning participant and last year's WRC Jordan Rally winner).

    Jorge Navarez and his adorable daughter are back with a great cover of What's up (what's going on) by the 4 non blondes.

    They already stole my heart in there last duet (found here) and now i just wanna go a hug the cuteness out of that little girl cause I can't take it anymore. She reminds of that little adorable child in Despicable Me. You know the one that goes "it's so fluffy I'm gonna dieeeee!". Anyways, a very nice and a very uplifting video. So great to see such a connection between a father and his daughter.

    Check it out!

    Today is the launch of Lebron James' first episode of his animated cartoon, "The LeBrons". The story revolves four different characters who live together, each one portraying a side of Lebron himself. You find Kid, Athlete, Business and Wise which will together manage a situation each in his own way. In a way, this show describes the life of this superstar and the different traits in his personality, and he made sure it was representative of him by setting it up in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. Is this just a marketing tool for Lebron to up his fame and increase his wealth? Or is this really a educational, yet fun, series that could benefit many kids?

    Update: The Lebrons has been blocked in Canada.

    What would your last words be if you were about to be executed? What would you think of? What would you say? Does it even matter? Does it even count? Is your voice the last thing you want to hear? Is there anyway to turn this around? Can you change your executor's mind with those words? Maybe? Maybe not? After all you've got nothing and everything to lose...

    A guy used his nerdy genius to transmit a simple video playing on an iphone to any screen of his choice in the middle of Times Square. Imagine this app's potential for all the evil villains out there whom are hell bent on world domination. You're all one step closer guys!




    Today, take an hour to thank mother earth for all that she has given you.

    Happy Earth Hour!



    What do you do when you have a sick ride and even sicker driving skills? You street race of course! And if the cops ever bother you, just do doughnuts around them all the while insinuating a significant disdain for the law (in other words a big F YOU!). Wouldn't that be the life.

    Yet, apparently that's exactly what some courageous driver from somewhere in East Asia did. 

    But let's be honest, these cops were a little to optimistic to think that they could catch up to him in their modest rides..


    I have recently discovered a new documentary series produced by BBC one entitled "Human Planet" and it is truly a compilation of the most amazing and breath-taking scenes I have ever witnessed.

    Divided by theme into 8 episodes, the show takes us on a voyage to discover the different ways humans have adapted to survive in different living environments. It kicks off with an underwater episode that pushes the limits of the human body allowing us to enjoy the fruits of a world we were not meant to live in. Following it is a survival episode in the desert which lacks the one thing that was previously an obstacle. And goes on with mountains, forests, rivers, grasslands, arctic and finally cities.
    He could be anywhere? In your driveway... On your balcony... Behind you at a McDonald's... That sweet old lady at the bookstore... or maybe that little girl scout that was trying to sell you the best cookies of your life, since they will be your last!

    Be afraid! Be very afraid!

    Now Dance!


    So I've been reading articles and watching videos about weight loss and one thing stood out: the information they give is usually incomplete. Everytime they claim something, they often don't bother to explain the fact and only prefer to just plainly state it. Therefore, if you don't understand why having a big breakfast is more important than skipping it or having a small one, why then should you to stick with it just cause they say it is? Every day you might read about which food you should eat or which workout routine would work best but loosing weight is a slow and extremely hard process. So you might ask what does work? and why? This article is for all of you people whom are sick of your little bellies and big tummies. Join me as I explore the science behind all the facts and find out why some food are better than others, why others make you fuller for longer, and how you can burn calories while sleeping.
