No matter how much they fight over religion ,geographical boundaries and other pity cheap subjects, human beings will still survive and flourish. Thats the power of COURAGE.
Homely brat training. But that kid just blew my mind . Isnt she the most awesome thing since God farted* ?
*It was yet another boring day in heaven .God and his buddy Jake where having this little game of ping pong or something,when God felt like farting and he went "i can haz farts".He farted and thus the universe was created. Although Family Guy never mentioned this, God is said to have sued his Cabbage suppliers for not printing a warning on the package in BIG BOLD letters.
Heard at CNN:
On average 4,000 people die a year on Mumbai’s railways, crushed under trains, electrocuted by overhead power lines or killed as they lean from jam-packed carriages to gasp for air. It is perhaps the world’s deadliest commute.
Fatal accidents are so common that stations stock sheets to cover corpses.
Authorities say the ongoing network upgrade will improve matters, but commuters are sceptical.
“Plans are always made, but nothing really happens,” said Bidisha Mukherjee, a young commuter. “If they want to do something, it had better be quick.
Thanks to the average Indian's patience.They got "independence" in 1947.They are still hoping for the goodtimes that may come tomorrow .

Amazing viral campaign video.[Dont know what they sell though ]
Not sure if this is a staged performance, but if its real, even if its your sister, just call the cops and throw her up in jail.
Being an actor is bad thing. Being an actor in asia can be even harder. This is Choi Min Sik eating live octopus for the movie Oldboy.
And here is the final clip:
Is this practiced in real life ? Yes!They do this in Korea. Here is a clip from the legendary "Travellers" show:

The following video may be slightly disturbing to some of our readers. But this is a reality and is a case of medical condition known as harlequin ichthyosis [also, ichthyosis congenita or keratosis diffusa fetalis]
a skin disease, is the most severe form of congenital ichthyosis, characterized by a thickening of the keratin layer in fetal human skin. In sufferers of the disease, the skin contains massive, diamond-shaped scales. In addition, the eyes, ears, mouth, and other appendages may be abnormally contracted. The scaly keratin greatly limits the child's movement. Because the skin is cracked where normal skin would fold, it is easily pregnable by bacteria and other contaminants, resulting in serious risk of fatal infection.
Sufferers are known as harlequin fetuses, harlequin babies, or harlequins.

Damien Hirst, former BritArt bad boy whose works infuriate and inspire in equal measure, did it again on Friday with a diamond-encrusted platinum cast of a human skull priced at a cool $98 million.
The skull, cast from a 35-year-old 18th-century European male, is coated with 8,601 diamonds, including a large pink diamond worth more than $8 million in the center of its forehead.
Hirst, who has a preoccupation with blood and death and whose works range from diced and pickled quadrupeds to bloody depictions of birth, said he was inspired by similarly bejeweled Aztec skulls. While the skull is platinum and the diamonds flawless — and ethically sourced, Hirst stressed — the teeth are real.

16 people died in a snowstorm while gathering“Himalayan Viagra” [ yarshagumba ]. The fungal substance which is found in meadows above 11,500ft has been highly valued as a health tonic and aphrodisiac in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and can fetch up to $3,000 a kilogram – a small fortune in impoverished Nepal.
Yarshagumba.Sadhus hugging women, totally erect...not anymore.
The villagers had ventured into the remote mountainous district 240km (150 miles) northwest of Kathmandu to collect yarshagumba (cordyceps sinensis).

A brilliant signage from picketing seniors, who did not pass Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills exam.
“We know we’re not going to get our diplomas, but we just want to walk across the stage,” Crystal Martinez, one of the dozen protesters said. “That’s all we ask for right now.”
No, we are not spelling police. In fact this blog has several grammatical and spelling mistakes in it [all published on purpose!! ;) ] .But this one is CLASSIC.

If you have a 19 year old father and a 20 yr old mother, what do you expect? You are expected to expect them doing stupid things on you!See what happened in the Cowboy state:
Texas: A woman blames the devil and not her husband for severely burning their infant daughter after the 2-month-old was put in a microwave, a Houston television station reported.
Eva Marie Mauldin said Satan compelled her 19-year-old husband, Joshua Royce Mauldin, to microwave their daughter May 10 because the devil disapproved of Joshua’s efforts to become a preacher.
“Satan saw my husband as a threat. Satan attacked him because he saw (Joshua) as a threat,” Eva Mauldin told Houston television station KHOU-TV.
A Galveston County grand jury indicted Joshua Mauldin last week on child injury charges after hearing evidence that he placed his daughter in a motel microwave for 10 to 20 seconds.
The infant, Ana Marie, remains hospitalized. She suffered burns on the left side of her face and to her left hand, police said.
Eva Marie Mauldin, the girl’s 20-year-old mother, told the television station that her husband is “not the monster people are making him out to be.”
“That was not my husband; my husband is a wonderful father,” she said. “Satan was working through his weaknesses.”
People of African and European ancestry have predominantly wet earwax. Asians, Inuit and Native North Americans have predominantly dry earwax, as they have a gene that prevents cerumen from mixing with their earwax.
Researchers identified a gene that alters the shape of a channel that controls the flow of molecules that directly affect earwax type. They found that many East Asians have a mutation in this gene that prevents cerumen, the molecule that makes earwax wet, from entering the mix.
Scientists believe that the mutation reached high frequencies in Northeast Eurasia and, following a population increase, expanded over the rest of the continent. Today distribution of the gene is highest in North China and Korea
Okay, yet another Why article for WineJuice readers.
What make birds sing together? Why do they do that? Here is the reason from Science News:
Over several decades, scientists have offered at least a dozen explanations for the purpose of avian duets. The theories have focused on the forest, the pair, or conflicts of interest between individual birds.
The abundance of duetting in the tropics inspired some of the early explanations. Scientists in the 1970s noted that dense tropical vegetation would make sound especially important for mates identifying each other or keeping in contact. Recently, theorists have suggested that tropical birds duet to stay in sync reproductively, despite limited seasonal cues such as changes in day length.
Other scientists have stressed the partnership. For example, in the 1980s, the "coyness hypothesis" proposed that birds that consummated their pairing only after the arduous job of learning to duet would have a stronger bond that would discourage extra-pair adventuring.
Yet other theorists have suggested that duetting enables a bird to judge its mate's commitment to the partnership. Discouraging interlopers has been a popular theme, both in duetting to defend a territory and duetting to drive away a potential mate stealer...
The current generation of duetting studies often compares his-and-her agendas. One possible agenda is the male's clear interest in fathering the female's chicks. He may be chiming in to the female's song as a musical claim to paternity.

United States of America is ranked #37 in The World Health Organization's ranking of the world's health systems.The following incident ,as reported by LA Times explains why we are far behind Chile, Morocoo and others.
In the emergency room at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital, Edith Isabel Rodriguez was seen as a complainer.
“Thanks a lot, officers,” an emergency room nurse told Los Angeles County police who brought in Rodriguez early May 9 after finding her in front of the Willowbrook hospital yelling for help. “This is her third time here.”
The 43-year-old mother of three had been released from the emergency room hours earlier, her third visit in three days for abdominal pain. She’d been given prescription medication and a doctor’s appointment.
Turning to Rodriguez, the nurse said, “You have already been seen, and there is nothing we can do,” according to a report by the county office of public safety, which provides security at the hospital.
Edith Isabel Rodriguez
Arriving to find Rodriguez on the floor, her boyfriend unsuccessfully tried to enlist help from the medical staff and county police — even a 911 dispatcher, who balked at sending rescuers to a hospital.
Alerted to the “disturbance” in the lobby, police stepped in — by running Rodriguez’s record. They found an outstanding warrant and prepared to take her to jail. She died before she could be put into a squad car.

The American Life Project has found that adult Americans are broadly divided into three groups: 31 percent are rabid users of technology, 20 percent are moderate users, and the remaining 49% demonstrate little or no usage of the Internet or cell phones.
When asked if they felt overloaded by the volume of information available or the means to access it, 27 percent of all respondents said they did, but 67 percent said they like having so much information available.
Classification goes like this:
“Elite Tech Users,” representing 31% of adults surveyed, have the most information technology tools, use the Internet and cell phones heavily and frequently, and (to varying degrees) are engaged with user-generated content. This group is almost evenly split into four smaller groups:
- “Omnivores,” who fully embrace technology and express themselves creatively through blogs and personal Web pages;
- “Connectors,” who see the Internet and cell phones as communications tools;
- “Productivity enhancers,” who consider technology as largely ways to better keep up with their jobs and daily lives; and
- “Lackluster veterans,” those who use technology frequently but aren’t thrilled by it.

As events unfold,Mumbai police suspect that the sensational murder of 24-year-old TCS employee Koushambi Layek may actually have been a suicide attempt that went wrong!.
Cops in India are probing to see if the girl and her boyfriend, Manish Thakur, 28, had entered into such a pact and if Thakur developed cold feet at the last moment, after Koushambi Layek had been shot, either by herself or by him. Police also want to examine if she committed suicide in Thakur's absence. Usually a gunshot to head is depicted in movies as a very uneventful and less scary incident,which leaves a little "cute" hole on victim's head. But in reality , the bullet would burst open the skull , exposing brain matter, and in some case, even squash the eyes.A scene like that, with an open squashed head with brain matter and blood scattered everywhere,is more than enough to take the sh*t out of any normal living soul. Chances are that , the guy got scared and changed his mind seeing the gore and ran away.This is further supported by the following findings:
Thakur left all his personal belongings and ID proof at the Sun & Sheel hotel ,Mumbai where Koushambi's body was found on Monday afternoon.
“Generally in a murder case, the culprit tries to destroy evidence. In this case, however, everything was left behind. This is puzzling. When we interrogate Thakur, we'll try to address this question,” additional police commissioner Bipin Bihari told .
The autopsy report suggested Koushambi Layek was killed on Sunday night.Manish Thakur left the hotel room a couple of hours later, and till almost 15 hours after the murder, the hotel staff had no clue about the killing. If Thakur had planned the murder, he had ample time at his disposal to destroy evidence inside the room. But he did not do that, cops said.
“We are treating the case as one of murder, but we need to get answers to all these questions,” Bihari said.
The suicide theory has also gained weight because of information given by Layek's family, police said. Layek's family members were supposed to reach Mumbai on May 19 to take her back to their home in Dumka in Jharkhand since they had shortlisted some marriage proposals for her and wanted her to choose a groom soon.
Koushambi's cousin Kaushik Layek said that when the family members spoke to her about this on Sunday over the phone, she sounded depressed.
“She sounded very low and said she was tired of life,” the cousin said.
However, another question that is baffling the cops is that if it was indeed suicide, why did she get two bullet wounds instead of one?
The autopsy report has said Layek died of haemorrage due to two bullets from a prohibited bore firearm (a firearm that cannot be used to common people and is only available to police and the armed forces).
Police sources said there was no way Layek could have had access to a prohibited bore weapon unless Thakur had smuggled his service revolver from Goa, where he was undergoing training.
It is thus clear the weapon was brought by Thakur, police said.
A team of Mumbai police that reached Goa on Wednesday is expected to bring Thakur back to Mumbai today and produce him in a court. Naval spokesperson from Kochi, Manohar Nambiar, told Mumbai Mirror that Thakur has been handed over to Mumbai police.
