Roomba - Is It Worth the Money?


Well according to this article the Roomba is a kind of totally automatic vacuum cleaner, navigates its own way round your house looking for dirt and dust and then takes itself back top its charging station when it's about to run out of juice..

Also according to this article if you have never heard of this thing you must have been living under a rock for the past 10 years which is when the first version came onto the market - well I'd never seen anything like this until today myself - I must try and get out more! :p

"A new perceived threat followed World War II and the Cold War. A fear of getting hit by the nuclear "big one" became a way of life for Americans and other countries all over the world. School drills telling kids to hide under desks didn't quell the nerves of some families. With paranoia lurking everywhere, underground shelters began to pop up across the globe.

Author and photographer Richard Ross sought these shelters out during his travels and documented them for his project, "Waiting for the End of the World." These impressive structures transformed over the years into tourist attractions, comfortable living spaces, and even a night club. They look a lot better than you'd expect from places where people would wait out the end of the world.."


Kelvedon Hatch in Essex, England

lol - a photoshop job surely?

"The trend is typically that no billionaire seems to be fulfilled until they've purchased their own superyacht. Actually, it has been discovered that the everyday billionaire invests roughly $22 million on their yachts, according to Wealth-X and UBS Global Billionaire Census from a November report.
Wealth-X's newest study rates the priciest deluxe asset purchases of all time, and it's likely not surprising that 8 of the top 10 investments are put into yachts."

Why is it nearly all of these are owned by Russians? I thought all the big yachts were in Southampton :p

Serene, $330 million - This 440-foot Italian-designed yacht belongs to the Russian vodka distributor (Yuri Scheffler, and it comes with turquoise neon lights which present it with a nighttime glow. Altogether is has 48,000 square feet - 7 decks - of covered space, which incorporates outdoor and indoor pools, 12 staterooms as well as a screening room outdoors. It was purchased by Scheffler in 2011.

Some Amazingly Coloured Animals


"All the makeup in all the Sephoras in all the world still couldn't hold a candle to the natural beauty these stunning animals were born with. I'd be jealous, but I doubt I could pull off these shades anyway.Some of them use their vibrant colors to ward off predators while others are just plain pretty for no reason at all. One thing is for certain, though. Nature can be a bright and beautiful place"


There are more than 100 different poison dart frog species all with bright colors to warn predators of their toxicity.

"When this homeless man in Spain was graciously given a makeover by a local salon, he also got a new lease on life. With the help of some scissors, hair dye, and a spiffy new outfit, Jose Antonio went from scruffy street dweller to classy hipster, and could hardly recognise himself afterwards.

Jose, known affectionately as Josete by locals in his native Palma, spent 25 years living on the street. Salva Garcia, owner of La Salvajeria hair salon, invited Jose to come and get cleaned up. When they uncovered the mirror to show him his freshly trimmed beard and lush brown hair, he began to sob. "My God... Is this me?" He exclaims in a video of the transformation produced by the salon.

Brimming with joy, Jose hit the town. Locals who were used to his former appearance gasped in shock, shouting compliments from afar. La Salvajeria has since revealed to Spanish TV stations that Jose is now receiving financial assistance from an unnamed company and is off the streets. "It wasn't just a change of look. It changed my life," he told reporters."


from this... this..


"On August 31, 2004 at 5:00 am a beaten naked  man was found unconscious behind the dumpster of a Burger King. The man had no driver's license, wallet or any other identification.After waking up at the hospital from being unconscious, the hospital staff asked for his name. All he could remember was his first name "Benjaman" with two a's. He could not remember his last name or social security number. The last name Kyle was his placeholder name provided at the hospital. Benjaman suffered from cataracts on both eyes which he was able to operate 9 months after a charity raised the money. Upon seeing himself in the mirror, he was surprised to see he was 20 years older he thought he was..."

"While Ray Villafane is best known for his expertise in the art of food carving, he is also recognized for his magnificent, remarkably realistic sand sculptures. Using just sand and water, the artist sculpts incredibly detailed figures that tower above him as he works. Funny-faced people, nativity scenes, and hellish creatures from Dante'sInferno appear so lifelike that it's hard to believe they were formed from humble grains of sand.

Villafane only began sand sculpting in 2008 after accepting a challenge in Jesolo, Italy. Despite not having any experience working with the medium, he wowed viewers with his exceptional craft, and since then has received invitations from all over the world to take on new sand sculpting projects."
