  • 5 Things That Are Ridiculously EXPENSIVE in other countries!!

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    Would you pay $9.83 for latte?  Well, according to Buzzfeed.com, that's how much it costs at Starbucks in Oslo, Norway, which is the highest in the world.  Check out five more things that are supposedly crazy expensive in other countries.

     

     

    1.  The iPhone 5.  In the U.S., it's $649 without renewing your contract.  The most expensive place to buy one is Russia, where it costs $3,755.

     

     

    2.  A Big Mac.  Venezuela has the most expensive Big Macs, at $9.08.  In Hong Kong, you can get one for $2.19.  But Hong Kong more than makes up for it with gas, which costs $8.59 a gallon.

     

     

    3.  A Movie Ticket.  In Tokyo, one ticket runs you about $18.  The cheapest is in South Africa, where they cost around $5.

     

     

    4.  Cars.  If you buy a new one in Singapore, you can expect to spend a small fortune.  For example, a brand new Volkswagen Golf costs a little over $110,000.  In the U.S., you're more likely to see a sticker price of around $23,000.

     

     

    5.  Cigarettes.  People in Melbourne, Australia supposedly pay around $17 for a pack of Marlboros.  As opposed to the Philippines, where the average price is $1.10.

  • A Quick Simple Trick To Instantly Become More Charismatic..

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    I'm not sure this actually works...but I might have to try it...

     

    Here's a completely random trick you can use to make yourself more CHARISMATIC next time you're meeting new people or giving a presentation.

     

     

    According to an author and Harvard and MIT lecturer named Olivia Fox Cabane, you INSTANTLY make yourself more charismatic by THINKING ABOUT YOUR TOES.

     

     

    Here's why.  If you focus on the physical sensation you're feeling in your toes, it makes your brain "sweep" your body from head to toe.

     

     

    In the process, it makes your whole body alert, which makes you more physically present . . . and that translates into more powerful, authentic, and confident body language.

    'Lost' actress Tania Raymonde to play defendant, Jodi Arias in a new lifetime movie about that whole thing.  If you’re unfamiliar she is the girl who viciously murdered her Ex-Boyfriend in the summer of 2008….something like 27 stab wounds, he was also shot in the head and had a slit throat…..but it was all self defense according to her!  Trial started Jan 2nd this year and is about to end with a verdict soon.

     

    The Kim K and Kris Humphries divorce may be settled….tomorrow…let’s hope.  He’s losing the battle and wants 7 million.  He won’t get it, but he may get something from her just to end it quickly out of convenience.

     

    Pamela Anderson says she's toning down her look.  So we can all take her seriously again as an actress like we did back in . . . um . . . never.

     

    Bradley Cooper reportedly lives with his mother.  His female fans think it cute.  Oh sure, HE does it and it's cute . . . but other guys that live with mom until their 40 are losers.  Whatever.

  • WHOA! A beverage that tastes like the milk at the bottom of your cereal bowl?

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    One of the highlights of eating really sugary cereal is drinking the milk that's left in the bowl.  Because all that sugar soaks in, and turns it into some kind of impossibly delicious super-milk.  What could be a better beverage idea than this?  And why did it take so long for someone to come up with it?

    Well . . . a company is FINALLY selling milk that tastes like the milk from the bottom of a cereal bowl.

    The company is called Cow Wow, and their "cereal milk" is just about to roll out nationwide.

    The milk comes in two flavors.  We haven't tried them, but from the packaging we're guessing they're modeled after the milk left behind by Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles.

    They have two more flavors coming out later this year.  And based on the packaging for those, we're guessing they're designed to taste like Lucky Charms, and the HOLY GRAIL of cereal milk flavors . . . Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

    The milk comes in eight-and-a-half-ounce packages, and they have about 175 calories each.

  • What CAN'T the iPhone do?

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    I mean, I've heard people say that iPhones these days can do anything, but that's just usually something people say.  Right?  Sure, you can deposit a check into your bank account, get directions to virtually anywhere in the world or spend mindless hours playing games on your phone.  But now you can now control your prosthetic hands with them.

    In 2008, 29-year-old Jason Koger was riding his four wheeler when he hit a downed power line.  He was in a coma for three days . . . and when he woke up, both of his hands had been amputated.  (They don't say where the accident happened.)

    He's been using a variety of prosthetic hands for the last five years . . . but each one has a different grip and very limited movement.  Jason said it's like having to use one tool from his toolbox at a time.

    But a company in England solved that problem, and Jason just became the first person in the WORLD to get two bionic hands that can be controlled by his iPhone.    

    The hands are the closest thing to a real human hand . . . each of the fingers move independently, and his thumb can rotate fully, just like an actual thumb. 

    Basically, he can use his prosthetic fingers to work the iPhone, and there's a special app that lets him choose from 24 different grips that are programmed in.

  • Green Bank West Virginia, the town dedicated to living pre-wireless technology

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    Are you sick of being accessible 24/7?  Do you ever feel like you just want to get away from it all?  Well, there's a town for that.

    A remote West Virginia town with no cell service, Wi-Fi hotspots, or TV has become a haven for people who say that wireless technology is making them sick.

    Dozens of so-called “Wi-Fi refugees” suffering from a controversial malady called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) have moved to Green Bank, West Virginia, where cell phone and Wi-Fi signals are banned. An estimated five percent of Americans claim to have EHS, a condition not recognized by the scientific community.

    Green Bank is located in the US National Radio Quiet Zone, a 13,000-square mile area where electromagnetic radiation on the radio spectrum—such as radio and TV broadcasts, Wi-Fi networks, and signals from cell phones, Bluetooth and other high-tech electronic devices—are outlawed, to prevent transmissions from interfering with a local radio telescope and a nearby military radio installation.

  • Want to Know the Odds of Being Pulled Over . . . or Getting a Ticket Once You Do Get Pulled Over?

    Posted by Tommy Fox

    I have stumbled upon the results of a study that figured out that your odds of getting pulled over, getting a ticket or getting in an accident.

    Here we go…

    Your odds of being pulled over in a year are about an 8.7% chance.

    The probabilities of getting a ticket when a cop DOES pull you over are about a 56% chance… in other words, it’s worse than a coin flip.

    Finally your likelihood of getting into a car accident on a 1,000 –mile trip is about a 0.3% chance of happening.

    Pat Summerall -- a staple on CBS and Fox Sports who famously called NFL games with John Madden for decades -- is dead at 82

     

    So a Bill is on its way to legislation to combat CELEBRITY SWATTING PRANKS!!  It actually passed it’s first hurdle and basically it enforces steep jail time and fines combined for committing the crime.  Recent victims include, Bieber, Seacrest, Rihanna, Tom Cruise…..

     

    Miley Cyrus smoking a blunt on video in a club.  I’m not encouraging the behavior, but I don’t understand why it’s a big deal when people like Snoop and Rihanna brag about it, but when she or Bieber do it, it’s a major ordeal?!!  Let’s remember, she’s no longer Hannah Montana!!

     

    Kendall Jenner says she wants to be a Victoria's Secret model.  A member of the Kardashian family taking off her clothes in an effort to get famous?   Yeah, right!
