Incredible Bravery of Acid Attack Victim


Incredible Bravery of Acid Attack Victim



Patricia Lefranc was left horrifically disfigured after her jilted lover sprayed sulphuric acid on her face. The 48-year-old lady spent three months in a coma. She lost the sight of one eye, became partially deaf, and had to endure 86 surgical operations. Two years have passed since the attack; still the acid continues to erode her skin and eat away her nose. Being mocked by her son’s school friends, being stared at in the street, being cited as example to unyielding girls by threatening lovers..., the horror and shame of it haunts her in myriad forms. 'Remes has ruined my life as a woman. I am determined to look him in the eye and show the jury what he has done to me. I would also appeal to his wife. She paints me as a manipulator who hooked her husband. I think that's an insult - a dagger in my back. 'Richard Remes, the accused, has apologized for the attack; but he denies that he intended to murder or even maim her, confessing that he did not realize that the acid would have such horrible consequences. The story goes that Ms. Lefranc was a janitor in the apartments where the accused Mr. Remes had been living with his wife and children. There he fell into an affair with her, and when she wanted to close it after two years, showered the attack.

She was approximately 12 years old at the time. She made it on the cover of National Geographic next year, and her identity was discovered in 1992.

Snake massage.. Wonna try it..

Snake massage.. Wonna try it..

An Israeli health and beauty spa is offering a creepy new service for its customers - Snake Massage. For just $80 you can have large slithering reptiles such as California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes, wriggle down your back and up your spine and across your face. If you dont freak out, it can be soothing experience, as the spa owner Ada Barak will tell you.

 Barak figured out several years ago that heavy king and corn snakes produce a relaxing kneading sensation. She says that once people get over any initial misgivings, they find physical contact with the snakes to be stress relieving.

"Some people said that holding the snakes made them feel better, relaxed," she said "One old lady said it was soothing, like a cold compress."

The size of the snakes depends on the type of massage - the larger ones are said to alleviate deeper muscle tensions and the smaller ones create a 'fluttering' effect. All are the snakes used are non-venomous. 

Oh! What a relief.

Inside a Wave: Mind-blowing Photography

Inside a Wave: Mind-blowing Photography


These are some mindblowing photos from inside a wave called shore break art photographs. Getting inside, over and under 30-40 foot waves is no small feat, especially with bulky camera equipment, and a goal of finding that perfect angle and lighting condition that makes a perfect shot. 


"The Shorebreak Art of Clark Little" is nothing short of epic.

Supersized woman meets her significant other 

The woman who is bidding to be the fattest in the world arranges a marriage of convenience.
Supersized mother of two children and a model for SSBBW (supersized big beautiful women) websites Susanne Evan, 33, has once claimed that she has a goal to become the fattest woman in the history. It seems now that she is about to reach her aim very quickly, because Evan, who presently weighs a bit more than 342 kg (756 lb.) has recently revealed that she is engaged to marry a chef. Susanne’s fiancé Parker Clack loves cooking for her and the woman says that their marriage was arranged in heaven.  
The couple has met over the Internet and now lives together with the woman’s two teenage sons at Susanne’s house in Arizona. On her way to the desired 729 kg (1610 lb.) of body weight Ms. Evan disregards the warnings of the medical experts, who provide examples of people dying of morbid obesity.

Longest Wedding Dress Train

Longest Wedding Dress Train


A hot air balloon floated over downtown Bucharest on Tuesday carrying a model wearing what is now regarded as the world's longest bridal train. The nearly 3km ivory train on the model's wedding gown billowed out over a main boulevard in Romania's capital.

The Guinness Book of World Records has recognised the 2.75km item on the silk and lace gown as the longest train, beating the previous record (2488m) held by a Dutch designer. But pedestrians didn't seem to make much of Tuesday's (local time) media event, which was organised by the artifact's creators: the Andree Salon fashion house and the 
organizers of this year's biannual Wedding Fair in Bucharest.

A few bystanders looked up at the balloon, but many others ignored it. The train, which used 4.7km of material and took 100 days to create, was crafted by a team of 10 seamstresses, said salon spokeswoman Lavinia Lascae. The lace was imported from France, while taffeta and other fabrics were purchased from Italy, costing a total of 24,000 lei ($US7364.48), she added.

Beating a Dutch designer to the record had an added dimension for Romanians, as many are still angry after the Netherlands opposed its entry into the European Union's visa-free travel zone. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte recently demanded that Romania and Bulgaria do more to reform their justice systems and combat corruption and organized crime before he would support integration.If the Netherlands does not allow us into Europe, we'll take them out of the world records book," said Alin Caraman, an organizer of the Wedding Fair.

Woman and Horse Trapped in Mud

Woman and Horse Trapped in Mud

This was the terrifying moment a brave young mother battled to keep her beloved horse calm as sea water closed in on the animal after he became trapped in mud 'like quicksand'.Exhausted and mud-splattered, Nicole Graham clung to her trapped horse Astro for three hours keeping his head high in a race against the tide.The 78-stone show horse had sunk into quagmire-like mud and was facing the prospect of drowning as the water rose around them.

Miss Graham had been out on an afternoon ride with her daughter along the coast near Geelong, south of Melbourne, when 18-year-old Astro suddenly sank into the mud.Before she could shout a warning, the smaller horse her daughter Paris was riding was also partially swallowed up by the mud.After dragging herself through the mire, Miss Graham helped her daughter and the other horse on to firmer ground.However, Astro was stuck fast and her efforts to pull him free only resulted in herself sinking deeper into the quagmire.

A local helicopter was put on standby as a last resort at pulling Astro from the mud.
The combined rescue effort paid off. With minutes to spare before the water reached him, Astro - who had been sedated by vet Stacey Sullivan - was dragged from the mud with the aid of the farmer’s tractor.

‘It was a race against the tide and fortunately we won,’ said Lieut Buckle, who praised everyone efforts, including those of Miss Sullivan whose work in sedating Astro made it easier to pull him free.Miss Sullivan said Astro was dehydrated but had coped well.‘A lot of horses don’t make it and I think without the owner there the chance of survival would have been a lot lower,’ she said.

Fire Waterfall at Yosemite

Fire Waterfall at Yosemite


This park was gazetted as a national park in 1890. It is world famous for its rugged terrain, waterfall and century-old pine trees. It covers 1200 sq km and the "fire" waterfall of El Capitan is one of the most spectacular of all scenery.

The spectacular view of the waterfall is created bythe reflection of sunlight hitting the falling water at a specific angle. This are sight can only be seen at a 2-week period towards the end of February. To photograph this rare event, photographers would often have to wait and endure years of patience in order to capture them. The reason is because its appearance depend on a few natural phenomenons occurring at the same time and luck.

1st, Is the formation of the waterfall - The water is formed by the melting of snow and ice at the top of the mountain. It melts between the month of December and January and by the end of February there might not have much snow left to melt.

2nd, is the specific angle of the sun ray hitting the falling water - The sun's position must be exactly at a particular spot in the sky. This occur only in the month of February and at the short hours of dusk. If it is a day full of clouds or something blocking the sun, you can only take pictures of your own sorry faces on the waterfall. It coincides with the fact that the weather in the National Park at that time of the year is often volatile and unpredictable. It compounds to the difficulty of getting these pictures.



The Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former an island. The builders dug the canal through the Isthmus at sea level; no locks are employed. It is 6.4 kilometres (4.0 mi) in length and only 21.3 metres (70 ft) wide at its base, making it unpassable for most modern ships. It now has little economic importance. 

The canal was mooted in classical times and an abortive effort was made to build it in the 1st century AD. Construction finally got underway in 1881 but was hampered by geological and financial problems that bankrupted the original builders. It was completed in 1893, but due to the canal's narrowness, navigational problems and periodic closures to repair landslips from its steep walls, it failed to attract the level of traffic anticipated by its operators. It is now used mainly for tourist traffic.

Bin Laden was not buried at sea, but flown to the U.S. for cremation!


The fate of Osama bin Laden's remains have been called into question after emails leaked from an intelligence analysis firm say the body of the terror leader was actually sent to the U.S. for cremation. 
According to the emails, the Al Qaeda boss was shot and killed during the famous Navy SEAL Team Six raid on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was transported back to the U.S. and cremated. The emails were allegedly obtained by the hacker group Anonymous from Stratfor, an organisation dealing with analysis of intelligence and geopolitical analysis.
It's also known as the 'Shadow CIA'. After bin Laden was killed in the famous raid in Pakistan on May 2 2011, the Obama administration said his body was buried at sea off the USS Carl Vinson - in accordance with Islamic tradition.
But in a particular set of emails given to WikiLeaks, the firm’s vice president for intelligence, Fred Burton, says he doubts the official White House version of what happened to bin Laden's body.
