Endless fun when you get yourself good at this..
Look at what you can make..
Expand the image. I saw many of these scams when I lived in Thailand – and it was happening all over the place..
If this is for real this makes me very sad about the state of affairs in the US..
“This test is designed for those aged 50 to 70. It consists of four parts and it will take approximately 15 minutes to complete/”
As featured in the New York Times some time ago. You would have thought that most street names were just arbitrarily and randomly chosen according to some sort of slightly distinctive feature on them.
According to this article there’s a lot more to it than that..
Apologies to the Old Trafford crew – I couldn’t think of a better example road to google for for this pic
You can buy certain domain names from the big providers now for a couple of quid in some cases, but did you know that certain domain names can cost into the multimillions for a single domain name.
This pages lists what you’re likely to pay for some of the big hitter domains. Clicking through each link goes to the associated press story behind the sale.
Bear in mind though that this list is just the ones we know about – 90% of sales (especially the expensive ones) go unreported and there will have been prices in the billions for the best ones..

Really? omfg god knows how many mouthfuls of seawater I’ve swallowed playing in the sea when I was a kid. This might have something to do with my current condition.
Seems reminiscent of many developing countries today even. (6 pages of these)

“Photographer Levi Bettweiser is the man behind the Rescued Film Project, an effort to find and rescue old and undeveloped rolls of film from the far corners of the world.
He recently came across one of his biggest finds so far: 31
undeveloped rolls of film shot by a single soldier during World War II.”
These new inventions will be appearing on a High St near you in the next couple of years probably…
This puts our short little lives in a bit of perspective.
“In this series of 36 images from the past, you’ll be as confounded as
your astounded. You might even find some shocking. In truth there are
many scenes captured here that we genuinely have no real explanation for
– their existence and creation only known to the photographer &
most dramatic and surprising development of 2014 was
not the scene that won, although that was
awe-inspiring, but the scene it beat out. Suppose
you knew a couple of years ago that Scarlett
Johansson would do a completely nude role with
several minutes of naked running time and no body
doubles, no bad lighting, no CGI, and no other film
tricks designed to obscure her private parts. What
odds would you have given that such a scene would be
chosen as the best and most popular of the year?
Astronomical, right? How could anything beat that?
Well, something did. The gorgeous Alexandra
Daddario, possessing a haunting pair of eyes and a
flawlessly sexy body, took off her clothing and
exposed every square inch of that flesh in an
episode of True Detective. In the process, she
managed to relegate the voluptuous Johansson to
second place. Bravo, Alexandra! But where can you go

I’m not really into religion in a big way but I got into the Thai version of Buddhism during my prolonged stay there. However my philosophy is more along the lines of the New Age movement’s ideology..not that anyone reading this could care less anyway..:-D
The (many) TV series of the same name got me fascinated in this subject. There’s just too many ‘coincidences’ and unexplained structures and stories in ancient texts like the Old Testament, Talmud, Koran etc for there not to be something to all this. World governments don’t think we’re ready to hear the truth – they deny it all to avoid a wide-scale change in peoples’ outlook’s on life and subsequent possible revolutions that could result from that.
Not that I’m really bothered anyway unless I happen to come face-to-face with an ET it doesn’t really occupy my thoughts too much,..
“Great athletes of the world have one thing that the others don’t: consistency. They are ready to perform at a world class level nearly every single time they play their game and that’s what makes them special. But in order to maintain such a high level, one must have some mental buffs as well. For some it’s faith, but sometimes even just faith alone is not enough, so superstition comes along. In big chunks too.”
Tiger Woods : Tiger has hit headlines for his off-course, erm,
activities more than on-course in recent years. As a result, his
tradition of wearing red on the final day of every tournament doesn’t
quite have the same impact it once had.
