A Singapore woman discovered the hard way that snakes can be a real pain in the butt especially when said snakes are residing in your toilet bowl.

Hot Air Horror Kills 18 As Balloon Explodes 1000 Feet Above Valley

Horror in the sky as a hot air balloon carrying dozens of people suddenly caught fire and exploded today. The accident occurred 1000 feet above Luxor, Egypt, Valley of the Kings, killing at least 18 people including several foreign tourists. Witnesses said they saw the balloon crash into a sugar cane field after hearing a loud explosion.

balloon accident The launch site shortly before the balloon explosion.

“Eight people jumped and they were like balls of fire, some were alive when they landed, but then died on the ground,” one witness said.

“Then the balloon went up and down again and swept along, then a second explosion occurred when another gas canister exploded.”

Eighteen people died and three were injured, according to the Ministry of Health.

A victim of a balloon accident is seen in a body bag.

The local balloon operators’ spokesman and General Mamdough Khaled, Luxor Governate’s director of security, said only two people survived.

The victims reportedly include nine from Hong Kong, four from Japan, two from France, two from Britain, and two who haven’t yet been identified.

This isn’t the first crash at the Luxor launching site, according to NBC News. Sixteen tourists were injured in 2009 and seven in 2010 when their balloons hit transmission towers.

The governor of Luxor has ordered a ban on hot air balloon flights following the accident.


Jackie Chan Joins Anti American Club

I’ve always pictured Jackie Chan has a cheery kinda chap, but as it turns out the Rush-Hour star is quite the political slash actor type, which by the way, you guys should know by now I absolutely hate.


The ever trusty Washington Post reports on our comedian friend from the east,

Americans know Jackie Chan best for his cheery, acrobatic performances in action movies such as “Rumble in the Bronx” and “Rush Hour,” made successful by his amazing martial artistry and self-effacing comedy. Chinese know Chan, a Hong Kong native, for largely the same reasons. But they also know him for something most Americans might find surprising: He is passionately political, a staunch defender of the Chinese Communist Party and harsh critic of anyone he sees as opposing Beijing. Today, that includes the United States.

I guess it’s okay these days for actors to come to America from other countries while trashing US in some political way. Is it just me or is that wrong?

Now take a peek at what Chan said in the entire interview! Including calling America
the most corrupt country in the world.” Absolutely shocking.

Host: America.

Chan: The most corrupt in the world.

Host: Really?

Chan: Of course. Where does this Great Breakdown [financial crisis] come from? It started exactly from the world, the United States. When I was interviewed in the U.S., people asked me, I said the same thing. I said now that China has become strong, everyone is making an issue of China. If our own countrymen don’t support our country, who will support our country? We know our country has many problems. We [can] talk about it when the door is closed. To outsiders, [we should say] “our country is the best.”

Host: So he can’t get enough of his more than 20 ambassador titles. I think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should ask him to be the ambassador to the United States.

Chan: Seriously, I am always like, when the door is closed, “Our country is like this and this. Who and who is not good.” But outside, “Our country is the best, like so and so, is the best.” You cannot say our country has problems [when you are outside], like “Yes, our country is bad.”

This interview is probably not so surprising to Chinese viewers. Chan has been stirring controversy for a few years now for criticizing Taiwan and Hong Kong as models of what can go wrong when you have “too much freedom.” He once said, in defending China’s censorship of his films, “Chinese people need to be controlled, otherwise they will do whatever they want.” So, in some ways, it was probably only a matter of time until he set his sights on the United States. Given that he called Taiwanese democracy “the biggest joke in the world,” it’s surprising his criticism of the U.S., which is commonly viewed as either Taipei’s sponsor or its puppet-master, wasn’t harsher.

I’ll be right back, I think I have a few movies in my Netflix queue to remove…

OctoMom’s Virgin Air Nightmare, Charges Filed

OctoMom is saying a Virgin America flight turned into a nightmare when the cabin crew purposely picked on them.

Apparently, Octo and her posse were forced to change seats, never given their beverages and even overheard the crew laughing at them! Also Octo was kicked out of the bathroom, in mid dump, by a flight attendant for no apparent reason.

Octo confronted the flight attendants, according to TMZ, and claim one of the female stewardess quipped, “I know who you guys are!”

Octo was so devastated over the incident, she filed a report with the airline against the crew. She told TMZ, “I was shocked to say the least how poorly they treated me on the plane. I would never book a flight on Virgin America again.”

Honestly, can you really blame the crew? Serving that brood must be more than a hand full!

Humanoid Robot to Appear on Super Bowl Pre-Game

r2 150x200 Humanoid Robot to Appear on Super Bowl Pre Game

A NASA & G.E. built humanoid robot is going to make a special guest appearance on the Super Bowl XLV pre-game show today. This robot is going to be a future astronaut’s assistant who will be onboard the International Space Station.

R2 is going to appear with Howie Long on the show. R2 isn’t going to do anything sports related- the current prototype consists of only a head, torso, two arms and two five-fingered hands. The government doesn’t want to scare you with the ‘other’ robots they have in secret, which in fact can throw a football and run faster than you, a human. You can only see this guy for now.

Megan Fox Loses Sexy Points Quick

Fabulous writer, Leigh Scott, at Breitbart’s Big Hollywood, made a not-so-nice assessment about Megan Fox today. He reveals a side about Megan that isn’t sexy like her photos in Maxim. As they say when a bad mouth ruins a pretty girl, “Stay quiet and look pretty.”

Megan Fox recently stated that her solution to a real life evil Transformer invasion would be to negotiate and ask,“instead of the entire planet, can you just take out all of the white trash, hillbilly, anti-gay, super bible-beating people in Middle America?”


Another Megan Fox quote:

“I don’t want to have to go on talk shows and pull out every single S.A.T. word I’ve ever learned, to prove, like, ˜Take me seriously, I am intelligent, I can speak.’ I don’t want to have to do that. I resent having to prove that I’m not a retard.”

Another Megan Fox quote:

“Women are expected to be conformist automatons in L.A. but in Britain you can be more yourself and people will take you on face value.”

Leigh Scott then puts his 2 cents in about about Megan’s choice of words:

“Far be it from me to point out that the base audience for “Transformers” is young males in Middle America, the same men that Fox condemns to a robot apocalypse.  I doubt the bi-coastal elites from Beverly Hills to the Upper West Side will be waiting in line for the midnight showing of Michael Bay’s latest opus.  Alienating your core audience is never a good idea.  Perhaps Ms. Fox holds an associate’s degree from the Timothy Geithner School of Business Management.”

“Fox asserts that she is “not a retard” and that she bucks the system by not being a “conformist.”  Is it bad for me to call foul on both points?”

“When you feel compelled to tell the world how smart you are, how intellectual your positions are, how deep your education runs, the sad truth is that you probably aren’t that bright.”

“Megan Fox is a panderer.  She trashes Middle America to the British Press.  She wears “Star Wars” T-shirts to make Fan Boys drool, then calls those Fan Boys “retards” to the hipsters in Silver Lake.  She talks up her intelligence and non-conformity¦. by making stupid, conformist statements.”

Response to Megan’s statement about being a “conformist automaton” in LA:

“Lauren Bacall made this observation about Hollywood: “When I first went into pictures, women absolutely ran the show. Bette Davis practically owned Warner Brothers.”  Bacall doesn’t know many of the stars of today. “They’re all too self-involved, y’know? And they’re so unaware of what goes on anywhere else.”

“Hmmmm¦is there any way that we can draw a parallel between the rise of “correct” thought in Hollywood as evidenced by self-absorbed automatons like Megan Fox and the observation that Hollywood used to be BETTER for women?  Is it, perhaps, that whiny divas who parrot talking points to look cool, who lack independent thought and rely on their good looks instead of honing their craft, have made Hollywood WORSE for women?  That may be a stretch.  Maybe I need some self-professed smart person to help me make that argument.”
