Simpson's Glue Thingy!!

A blob of dried glue bearing a vague resemblance to Homer Simpson has attracted astonishing bids of almost €175,000.




London-based seller Christopher Herbert didn't know if the bizarre item would attract any interest when he put it on eBay.



Putting it up for sale out of fun, he set a starting price of just €1.20 - but bidding quickly rocketed with the auction not due to close on Monday.


After finding the item whilst clearing out his stationery cupboard, Mr Herbert listed the object after his girlfriend noticed it shared some of Homer's distinctive features.



In his listing, Mr Herbert describes the peculiar item as the "missing piece" in any Simpsons fan's collection and states its origins as "made naturally by an overflowing tube of Uhu glue!"


"I'm absolutely amazed and very very pleased and happy and wondering what to spend the money on."

Honestly?.....I wouldn't pay €1 for it! Would You?

Is this not the coolest thing Ever!!


A boxer dog puppy being greeted a herd of inquisitive cows has gone viral, notching up nearly 700,000 hits.




It shows the pup, Lucy, approaching the cows during a walk.


Instead of running away, the cows gather around six-month-old Lucy for a closer look - and a good sniff.



It was first posted more than a year ago but has now become an 'overnight' sensation after being featured on a US TV show.

Katy Perry/Kings of Leon

Remember this guy? He's on the blog below from last year, doing an amazing cover of Rihanna's we found love. I was just floating around youtube and found this exellent version of Katy Perry the one that got away/ Kings of Leon - use somebody.

Wouldn't You be MORTO!!!!

A cricket landed on the court at the Australian Open while Cedrik-Marcel Stebe was playing Lleyton Hewitt. A poor ball girl was given the task to get rid of it and she appeared to try and shoo it away before picking it up and then seeing the slow mo replays on the screen.

The Whole laughed at her :)

Obama Gives Us a few bars!!!

Toilet Games

Sega unveils the Toylet, a games console powered by the user's urine, for use in Japanese bars.




The games are 'Mannekin Pis' - simply measures how hard you can pee.



Then there is 'Graffiti Eraser' - lets you remove paint by pointing a hose in different directions.



Or perhaps 'The Northern Wind, The Sun and Me' - where you play as the wind trying to blow a girl's skirt up, and the harder you pee, the harder the wind blows.



Finally, the very odd 'Battle! Milk From Nose' is a multiplayer game where you compete against the person who last used the urinal. The strength of your urine streams are compared, and translated into milk spraying out of your nose. If your stream is stronger, your milk-stream knocks your opponent out of the ring.

Shameless, Shameless Plug on TV!!!

Coolest Idea EVER!!!

It might not be the best device for button-bashing -- but this is officially the world's largest video-game controller.




The record-breaking device -- revealed at London’s Liverpool St station to launch the Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition -- measures 30 times the size of a standard NES controller.



It was created by British Engineering student Ben Allen, who studies at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and took five months to make at an estimated cost of €5,000



Commuters even got to have a go on the 366 cm x 159 cm x 51 cm joypad which weighs 18 stone, but it took more than their thumbs… it requires at least two gamers to press the buttons by jumping on them.
 
And here it is:

Brave Dog rescue!!

A very sad story about a brave dog!! Now its not what you think! The Dog ends up fine thankfully. However, a few days after this video was taken, it turns out that Barney's (the dog) owner had been hit by a car and died :(

Fair play to the fisherman for helping the dog though!

Andrew. :)


Indestructable iPad

Here's a great way to advertise the iPad! From a drop of over 100,000 feet it still WORKS!!!!

In fact in this video there appears to be no damage whatsoever!

This guy clearly is being paid too much money to say he can afford to attempt this :)

Knickerslessness!!!!


My favourtie story of the day :).

A Brazilian councillor has proposed a law to force superstitious brides to wear knickers at the altar.




Ozias Zizi claims a growing number of women in his home town of Vila Velha are turning up to church with nothing on underneath their wedding dresses.



He says the brides believe it will make their marriages last longer.


The Brazilian Repulican Party politician claims his new law, which would also put a lower limit on brides' necklines, will save clergymen from embarrassment.



He said: "There are a lot of women who believe that if they get married without wearing knickers this helps secure their nuptials for longer.



"The person, in fact, can get married in whichever way they like, but the moment they enter a place of worship they must show some respect. And without knickers just won't do."



But a local pastor, who conducts weddings in the town, branded the bill as "ridiculous".



Enoch de Castro said: "It would be an absurd thing to try to have to police something like this, to find out whether a bride is wearing knickers or not."

Let It Be by JB

I can't believe my 1st post in 2012 is going to be about Justin Bieber but I have to hand it to the guy this was very good.

New Years Eve at Time Square New York. The Bieb plays a great version on piano of the Beatles - Let it Be and was joined Carlos Santana on stage.

It wasn't a bad version and it will make the young wans aware of the Beatles' music.

Have a listen for yourself! :)

Andrew.
