Cop hastles kid for parking in a commuter parking lot
I expect this to be a fairly controvercial video, so I will explain a little before hand. Why this kid has a security cam in his car I have no idea, and we are really never certain if the guy talking to him is REALLY a cop, You never actually see the cop, just hear him. If he isn't a cop, he's sure a good actor. But anyway, if this actually happend this kid has a hell of a lawsuit on his hands. he could sue the cop that arrested him AND the one that allowed the other cop to do it. Maybe even the whole darned force. Anyway, I'm going to leave a comment box below this video for you all to comment on. I would love to hear what you think of it, and if anyone can tell me what that infernal clicking noise in the background is? I almost wish I had an audio editing tool to take that noise out of the equasion. You'd probably hear alot more of the conversation, but even with the distracting clicking noise you can definately tell what the cop is saying when he is near the camera. I think the BIGGEST mistake the KID made was telling the cop the camera was in the car. LOL! Notice how the cop manipulates the situation so he can get the cam? He didn't seem to have ANY interest in the car untill the kid mentioned the tape, anyway...check it out! you will be amazed and shocked at this cop's behavior!

Hidden Airplane Factory (Makes you wonder what else they're hiding. hmmm....)
During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from a Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting and fake buildings to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.
Flying saucers go into production!
A "flying saucer" that glides three metres above the ground and carries two people has gone into commercial production. The M200G volantor: yours for under £45,000 US company Moller International has begun to manufacture parts for its Jetsons-like personal flying pod, the M200G Volantor.
The M200G is the size of a small car and is designed to take off and land vertically.
Company founder Dr Paul Moller calls the craft "the ultimate off-road vehicle" as it is able to travel over any surface.
"It's not a hovercraft, although its operation is just as easy," said the aeronautical engineering boffin.
"You can speed over rocks, swampland, fences, or log-infested waterways with ease because you're not limited by the surface."
The craft was inspired by The Jetsons The flying saucer is designed to fly at an altitude of up to three metres, where it benefits from extra lift created by a cushion of air - known as ground effect.
This allows the M200G to glide over terrain at 50mph, powered by eight of the company's Rotapower rotary engines.
Moller International has not arranged for training or licensing requirements to operate the vehicle.
But it is prepared to offer demonstration sessions at its California base once the vehicle is ready for market.
The company has said the price for its M200G could start as low as £44,340 depending on the number ordered.
Tree man 'who grew roots' may be cured
An Indonesian fisherman who feared that he would be killed by tree-like growths covering his body has been given hope of recovery by an American doctor - and Vitamin A.
Dede, now 35, baffled medical experts when warty "roots" began growing out of his arms and feet after he cut his knee in a teenage accident.
The welts spread across his body unchecked and soon he was left unable to carry out everyday household tasks.
Sacked from his job and deserted by his wife, Dede has been raising his two children - now in their late teens - in poverty, resigned to the fact that local doctors had no cure for his condition.
To make ends meet he even joined a local "freak show", parading in front of a paying audience alongside victims of other peculiar diseases.
Although supported by his extended family, he was often a target of abuse and ridicule in his rural fishing village.
But now an American dermatology expert who flew out to Dede's home village south of the capital Jakarta claims to have identified his condition, and proposed a treatment that could transform his life.
After testing samples of the lesions and Dede's blood, Dr Anthony Gaspari of the University of Maryland concluded that his affliction is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a fairly common infection that usually causes small warts to develop on sufferers.
Dede's problem is that he has a rare genetic fault that impedes his immune system, meaning his body is unable to contain the warts.
The virus was therefore able to "hijack the cellular machinery of his skin cells", ordering them to produce massive amounts of the substance that caused the tree-like growths known as "cutaneous horns" on his hands and feet.
Dede's counts of a key type of white blood cell are so low that Dr Gaspari initially suspected he may have the Aids virus.
But tests showed he did not, and it became clear that Dede's immune condition was something far rarer and more mysterious.
Warts aside, he had enjoyed remarkable good health throughout his life - which would not be expected of someone with a suppressed immune system - and neither his parents nor his siblings have shown signs of developing lesions.
"The likelihood of having his deficiency is less than one in a million," Dr Gaspari told the Telegraph.
Dr Gaspari, who became involved in the case through a Discovery Channel documentary, believes that Dede's condition can be largely cleared up by a daily doses of a synthetic form of Vitamin A, which has been shown to arrest the growth of warts in severe cases of HPV.
"He won't have a perfectly normal body but the warts should reduce in size to the point where he could use his hands," Dr Gaspari said.
"Over the course of three to six months the warts should be come smaller and fewer in number. He will be living a more normal life."
The most resilient warts could then be frozen off and the growths on his hands and feet surgically removed.
Dr Gaspari hopes to get the necessary drugs free of charge from pharmaceutical firms. They would then be administered by Indonesian doctors under his supervision.
Still intrigued by the origins of Dede's peculiar immune condition, the doctor would like to fly him to the United States for further examination, but fears the financial and bureaucratic barriers would prove too difficult to overcome.
"I would like to bring him to the US to run tests on where his immune condition has come from, but I would need funding and to get him a visa as well as someone to cover the costs of the tests," he said.
"I've never seen anything like this in my entire career."
"Half Man Half Tree", part of the "My Shocking Story" series, will be shown on the Discovery Channel at 9pm on Nov 15.
Miricle Mule birth
High up on the Mesa, in the Grand Valley town of Collbran, a tiny four legged wonder sticks close to its mothers side. It is the latest addition to the ranch owned by Larry and Laura Amos. But this is a once-in-a-million, genetically impossible occurrence of a mule giving birth.
The mother of this beauty, is named Kate. She is a mule. Mules are a hybrid of two species, a female horse and a male donkey. Breeding the two results in a species with 63 chromosomes. A horse has 64, a donkey has 62. A mule can't reproduce because you need an even number of chromosomes to divide into pairs.
This little wonder came into the world in late April to the shock of the Amos family. Doting mother Kate has no idea what she has accomplished.
According to the magazine, "Mules and More", it is theoretically impossible for mules to be sires or dams. Mule fertility is so rare that the Romans had a saying, "Cum mula peperit" meaning "when a mule foals," or in modern terms, "when hell freezes over."
A full article on the baby is linked to this story from the "Mules and More" web site. It explains, the baby would not technically be a mule (half horse and half donkey) since it would have to be either one-third horse and two-thirds donkey, or two-thirds horse and one-third donkey.
Larry and Laura Amos own Winterhawk Outfitters in Collbran. They guide elk hunters, take pack trips, and fishing trips to remote lakes and streams in the Flat Tops Wilderness. They have taught American soldiers the fine art of mule packing for use in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Cruise ship built from home!
Cruise Ship Built at Home
Francois Zanella, a 58 year old former mine worker has built a cruise ship at his home in Morsbach, Moselle in North-Eastern part of France.
He started building his ship on August 10th, 1994. By that time, he had already spent more than 3,500 hours designing in excruciating detail all the components of the ship. It took him 11 long years to build the ship, a process that was completed on June 23, 2005. On that day his ship started sailing from port Sarreguemines.
Francois built his ship based on the model of Royal Caribbean's 1992 cruise ship Majesty of the Seas, but on a smaller scale. Because of that, he also named his ship Majesty of the Seas. Building this ship was a dream come true for Francois, a dream for which he happily spent 25,000 hours of his life.
He also became quite famous in France because of this project. One of the main TV channels in the country - France 3 - created a special program named Thalassa which followed his work during the construction process. He received considerable amount of fan mail because of that.
Currently Francois is enjoying the fruits of his labor by traveling around the world in his own cruise ship - Majesty of the Seas.
Below listed from top to bottom are the pictures of this amazing ship.
First is the ship and where it was built
The second shows how it was transported to the sea.

Cow being abducted by aliens???
I'm not sure if this is for real or what. It looks pretty real, but the seemingly increasing need by the general public for this kind of thing to be real makes me wonder if someone didn't just get a little creative with a video editing tool. But what ever it's origins, it IS pretty cool.

world's biggest dog a fake, though believable
As much as I wanted to believe this picture when I first saw it, it is an obvious all be it a very WELL DONE fake. if you save this picture to file and zoom in on the man's waist you will see an obvious slip with the blend tool. there is a chunk taken from his side and the left side of the dog's head you can see a slight blurred edge where the editor tried to blend the grass after adding the dog. but the chunk out of the guys hip really proves it more than anything. However if you look at the next picture it is a different setting same breed of dog. known as the mastiff. there are different breeds of these dogs, but they all get quite large ranging anywhere from 180 in the smaller breeds to 230+ lbs. the next picture is a very real picture as that there are way too many back ground shadows and angles to be able to blend without it being painfully obvious. you can tell this next picture is real because the image if you zoom in all the way there is no light ring around the dog commonly found in a resizing attempt . the edge of the dog's image when zoomed in is nice and crisp and clear and there are no signs of a blending tool in or around the image of the dog. so you decide? I think this next picture really COULD be the world's biggest dog though. however it is not confirmed. in fact I have no idea who this woman is or the name of her dog, you can tell it is a real dog. you decide. Feel free to comment on what YOU think. Just e-mail me with your thoughts and I will (with your permission of course) post them here on my site.
one big dog!
this picture found on one of my favorite sites for funny pics and weird oddities it a very real pic. and leads me to believe that although the picture above is a fake, that this breed of dog sure has the ability to take such a record if you happen to come across one that has that muscle disease that makes the muscles bulge to abnormal proportions. I can't remember the name of the disease off hand, but I'm sure some doctor will eventually send me an e-mail and inform me of the name of it. but those of you who have heard of it, think about if you find a dog of this breed with that problem? I bet it could easily get to the world's biggest dog category. and I believe that muscle disease can be found in other species as well if I'm not mistaken...including humans. I saw a picture of a pit-bull that had it and it was astoundingly huge. Pitt-bulls on average weigh around 85 lbs. The mastiff's average weight is roughly 190-220lbs. the pitt- bull looked close to the size of this dog, maybe an inch or two smaller but with amazing muscle definition. I wish now I had captured the image of that pitt (maybe some thoughtful reader who might have seen the image as well might send it my way...who knows. lol) but until then I guess you'll just have to take my word for it. but just imagine for a second how big a dog like THIS with that disease. LMAO! it would be the size of a grizzly bear. lol
Well...it just so happened I ran across a similar photograph as the one I described. It's a different pitt-bull but the same disease.
Wendy, the double muscled Pitt-Bull
This is wendy, the dog with a genetic muscle defect which makes it grow
"double muscled" she weighs 2x as much as she should, and
probably the only dog with her own 24 pack instead of a six pack. and
also the just an example of the pitt-bull with the muscle disease I was
talking about in the previous post. Now you can get a better idea and
quite an interesting mental immage of what a dog like the one above
would look like with this disease. YIKES! wouldn't want to make him
angry. "Mr. McGee...Don't make me angry...you wouldn't like me when I'm
man with the world's largest hand get's surgery
THE man with the largest hand in the world will be looking forward to a normal life after undergoing radical plastic surgery at Shanghai No. 9 People's Hospital.
Liu Hua, a 24-year-old Jiangsu Province native, was born with a left thumb, index and middle finger much larger than normal.
Liu was suffering from a rare disease called macrodactyly, a birth defect in which toes or fingers are abnormally large.
The cause of the disease is unknown but bone and soft tissue grows at an extraordinary rate.
Liu's three fingers and arm grew dramatically as he grew older and this had a serious affect on his life and his ability to work.
When Liu was hospitalized in Shanghai last month, his left thumb measured 26 centimeters, his index finger was 30cm and his middle finger 15cm. The overall weight of his left arm was about 10 kilograms.
"It was the biggest hand in the world," said Chen Zuliang, a hospital official. "Liu's fingers stopped growing in recent years so plastic surgery was at last possible to correct the malformation."
On July 20 surgeons began a seven-hour operation to reduce the size of Liu's fingers and thumb. Doctors removed 5.1kg of flesh and bone in the procedure.
"This was the first stage. The patient will regain the use of most of his left hand after rehabilitation," Chen said. "A second operation is scheduled in six months to reshape his left arm and shoulder."
