Public Beheading in Medina, Saudi Arabia

Crouched on his knees and blindfolded, Abdul Hamid Bin Hussain Bin Moustafa al-Fakki was executed in Medina, in the west of the country, as dozens looked on last month. The chilling and grainy footage shows the executioner lining his sword up on the back of Abdul Hamid's neck, before one swift, clean stroke decapitates him.

All Seniors Aren't Senile

You have to learn from the masters. An elderly, white-haired man walked into a jewellery store one Friday evening with a beautiful young blonde at his side. He told the jeweller he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.

All Seniors Aren't Senile

The jeweller looked through his stock and brought out a £5,000 ring. The old man said, "No, I'd like to see something more special. "At that statement, the jeweller went to his special stock and brought another ring over. "Here's a stunning ring at only £40,000," he said. The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, "We'll take it. "The jeweller asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, "Bycheque. I know you need to make sure my cheque clears so I'll write it now, and you can call the bank on Monday morning to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up on Monday afternoon," he said.

On Monday morning, the jeweller 'phoned the old man and said "Sir, there's no money in that account." "I know," said the old man, "but let me tell you about my weekend!" All Seniors Aren't Senile!

Cyclops Shark

Not only the baby shark is albino, it also has one eye. A fisherman has discovered what appears to be a shark with a single eye in the centre of its face. The odd albino ‘cyclops’ fetus was cut from the belly of a pregnant bull shark caught in the Gulf of California this summer.

Shark researchers who have examined the creature say it is genuine, although it is unlikely it would have survived after birth.

The shark’s condition is known as cyclopia, and is a rare congenital disorder characterised by the failure of the front portion of the brain to properly divide the orbits of the eye into two cavities. Cyclopia occurs within the spectrum of brain and face oddity or defects known as holoprosencephaly, which in severe cases can result in miscarriage or stillbirth.

Fish Foot Pedicures Not Safe

Fish foot pedicures may be a popular treatment but it is also not safe. Fish foot spa pedicures could spread diseases such as HIV and hepatitis C, health experts have warned.

Fish Foot Pedicures Not Safe

UK Health Protection Agency has discovered that fish tank water contains micro-organisms and believes problems could arise from bacteria being transmitted by the pedicure’s Garra Rufa fish, from the spa water itself or from one customer to another if the water is not changed.

If a user is infected with a blood-borne virus like HIV or hepatitis and bleeds in the water, there is a risk the diseases could be passed on.
According to the agency’s guidance, the risk is ‘extremely low’ but it ‘cannot be completely excluded’.

Patrick Mallucci Perfect Boob Specification

How perfect is a pair of boob? Patrick Mallucci, a plastic surgeon has the answer and he has identified four key features during a three-month study. First, the part of the boob lying below the nipple was ten per cent fuller than that above it — like those of Page 3 Hollie and model Kelly Brook.

Patrick Mallucci Perfect Boob Specification

The amount of breast above the “nipple meridian” is 45% and the part below 55%. This is the so-called 45:55 ration. The upper pole should be straight or concave. The lower pole should display a tight convex fullness. Nipples should point up at an angle of 20 degrees.


"The more breasts deviate from these measures the less attractive they are regardless of size." His findings were published in the International Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. Doctors can now use them to ensure perfect boob jobs.

Dan Wheldon died in a Indycar crash

Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died Sunday after his car became ensnared in a fiery 15-car pileup, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch fence just outside turn 2 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The 33-year-old Dan Wheldon was a two-time Indy winner, including this year's race.

Who wrote the Bible

Who wrote the first Bible? Precisely who wrote the Bible has been debated for centuries – but now scientists have devised a computer program that sheds much more light on the sources of the various religious texts within it.

Israeli computer scientists and Bible scholars have written an algorithm that analyses the writing styles found within various sections.

While it can’t pinpoint an individual author, the program has been able to determine when a passage has been written by more than one person and can detect the point at which a new author has taken over.

Who wrote the Bible

For instance, many believe that the Torah, the first five books of the Bible, was written by one person – Moses

Origins of the Bible

The Bible comes in two sections - the Old Testament and the New Testament.
The majority of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew, with some in Aramaic, and the New Testament was written in Greek.

The earliest Old Testament texts can be found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. They were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in caves near the Dead Sea, and date from 200 BC to 70 AD. They contain large portions of the Old Testament, but it is not known who was responsible for writing them.

The New Testament dates from 45 to 95 AD and some of it can be traced back to authors claiming to be eyewitnesses to Biblical events, such as Paul the Apostle.
The world had to wait until 1456 for the first printed Bible, produced in Latin by the German Johannes Gutenberg.

Previously, Bibles were hand-written on papyrus, parchment or paper.

3 Dimensional Photo Form - Human Face Photocopier

Here's a new terminology. It's called 3DPF or 3 Dimensional Photo Form. A simple term would be human face photocopier. Plucky Japanese start-up Real-f offers you the chance to 'see yourself' as never before. For a fee, Real-f takes digital stills of your face, then moulds them over a 3D model to create a hard vinyl chloride 'face'. The resulting model is called a 3DPF - 3 Dimensional Photo Form. If a face isn't quite enough, then you can opt for a full head and shoulders.

3DPF

Getting a duplicate copy of your face sound creepy to me.

Eye of Horus for Naomi Campbell

It appears that Naomi Campbell's billionaire beau Vladislav Doronin has reportedly offered to build his sweetheart a 25-bedroom luxury island house in the shape of the Eye of Horus as her 41st birthday present. The one-of-a-kind pad designed by architect Luis de Garrido would apparently be built on the island of Sedir off Turkey.

Plans of the building reportedly show that the 'eyeliner' portions of the property consist of solar panels to power Naomi's home.
