A 10-ton meteor streaked at supersonic speed over Russia’s Ural Mountains on Friday, setting off blasts that injured hundreds of people possibly upwards to over a thousand. Many locals feared they were being bombed. Watch this first video below. I would think the exact same thing. The explosion shakes the ground. You can hear glass shattering all around the man taking the video. Car alarms go off all around. Then you see the people in the street panicking and running for cover. More…
On 13 January 2012 at about 9:45 pm, in calm seas and overcast weather, under command of Captain Francesco Schettino, Costa Concordia struck a rock in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the eastern shore of Isola del Giglio, off the western coast of Italy about 100 km (62 mi) northwest of Rome. Of the 3,229 passengers and 1,023 crew known to have been aboard, 30 bodies have been located, and two more passengers are missing and presumed dead. More…
This image below was loaded on to NYPD’s Facebook page recently from a photo taken in early November, and it has now gone viral. I just heard about it on the news this morning, but you may have already hear the story and seen the image. Regardless, it’s worth sharing.
Larry DePrimo, from the NYPD, saw a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk without shoes, nor socks, and apparently had blisters on his feet. DePrimo stopped and talked with the man for a while. In doing so, he found out the stranger wore a size 12, so the officer went into a nearby Sketchers shoe store and bought a pair of $100 boots for a little over $75, after the store gave a discount, as well as thermal socks.
I was planning on working on one of my sites today, but never got around to it because I was checking out some awesome programs and apps I found on the internet. It all started out when I was checking the “Clicks” on my stat page. I watch all stats like a hawk and I want, and like, to know what links or images people are clicking on.
You may have already heard and used this online program I found, but it’s new to me and good enough to share. What that gophoto link took me to is an online program that is phenomenal!!! But let me back up just a bit.
If you haven’t seen the image created several weeks (months?) ago of Senator Rick Santorum which is a composite of gay pornographic photos, you can click here to go to one of my previous posts to view it. This was created due to Santorum’s homophobic and completely ignorant comment that gay sex will eventually lead to beastiality. That statement also brought about the website SpreadingSantorum.com which defines santorum as:
Okay, I admit. This isn’t an actual award but rather an impromptu kudos to some postings which truly had me Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off. So, to the authors listed below, there is no “passing this on by choosing 108.36 others, as well as including a picture of yourself attempting a scene out of JackAss: The Movie.”
Thank you everyone who has a hand in creating the laughter. Here on some excerpts, so please click the link to check out the rest of the post as well as their site. More…
Once again, Occupy Albuquerque marches on in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street. On Saturday, the group started from the home base of Coyote Camp and marched to downtown Albuquerque. Many banks were visited, but the final spot of protest before the return home was at the intersection of 4th and Central – the heart of downtown Albuquerque.
Al Jazeera: Abdul Hakim Belhaj, a NTC military chief, has confirmed that Muammar Gaddafi has died of his wounds after being captured near Sirte.
Today was a most phenomenal day! I arrived early at Coyote Camp and shortly before the scheduled noon protest at Wells-Fargo in Nob Hill, we gathered together to march as one to the meeting point. There were approximately 75 of us leaving from Coyote Camp. When the rest of the protest came into view, it was a glorious site… hundreds and hundreds had already gathered! It is difficult to estimate the size of a crowd constantly in motion, but I would estimate there were upwards to 800 people at peak time. All ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, etc. You name it, they were there! A perfect representation of the people today within the 99 percent.
A river in southern Chile has overflowed is banks, after it was blocked by volcanic ash and mounting debris. The area around the Nilahu river has been evacuated as a result.
The raised water levels follow the eruption of a volcano in the city of Puyehue on Saturday, which sent a huge ash cloud across nearby towns and all the way to Buenos Aires, the capital of neighbouring Argentina.
The ash has also damaged swathes of crops and killed many fish.
