Ngoc: three decades without sleepSixty-four-year-old Thai Ngoc, known as Hai Ngoc, said he could not sleep at night after getting a fever in 1973, and has counted infinite numbers of sheep during more than 11,700 consecutive sleepless nights. "I don't know whether the insomnia has impacted my health or not. But I'm still healthy and can farm normally like others," Ngoc said. Proving his health, the elderly resident of Que Trung commune, Que Son district said he can carry two 50kg bags of fertilizer down 4km of road to return home every day. His wife said, "My husband used to sleep well, but these days, even liquor cannot put him down." She said when Ngoc went to Da Nang for a medical examination, doctors gave him a clean bill of health, except a minor decline in liver function. Ngoc currently lives on his 5ha farm at the foot of a mountain busy with farming and taking care of pigs and chickens all day. His six children live at their house in Que Trung. Ngoc often does extra farm work or guards his farm at night to prevent theft, saying he used three months of sleepless nights to dig two large ponds to raise fish.
Bhagat: had his twin brother on his stomachSanju Bhagat's stomach was once so swollen he looked nine months pregnant and could barely breathe. iving in the city of Nagpur, India, Bhagat said he'd felt self-conscious his whole life about his big belly. But one night in June 1999, his problem erupted into something much larger than cosmetic worry. Mehta said that he can usually spot a tumor just after he begins an operation. But while operating on Bhagat, Mehta saw something he had never encountered. As he cut deeper into Bhagat's stomach, gallons of fluid spilled out — and then something extraordinary happened. "First, one limb came out, then another limb came out. Then some part of genitalia, then some part of hair, some limbs, jaws, limbs, hair." At first glance, it may look as if Bhagat had given birth. Actually, Mehta had removed the mutated body of Bhagat's twin brother from his stomach. Bhagat, they discovered, had one of the world's most bizarre medical conditions — fetus in fetu. It is an extremely rare abnormality that occurs when a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. The trapped fetus can survive as a parasite even past birth by forming an umbilical cordlike structure that leaches its twin's blood supply until it grows so large that it starts to harm the host, at which point doctors usually intervene.
Yokoi: spent 28 years hidden after WWIIShoichi Yokoi was a soldier, conscripted into the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and sent to Guam shortly thereafter. In 1944, as American forces reconquered the island, Yokoi went into hiding. On January 24, 1972, Yokoi was discovered in a remote section of Guam by two of the island's inhabitants. For 28 years he had been hiding in an underground jungle cave, fearing to come out of hiding even after finding leaflets declaring that World War II had ended. "It is with much embarrassment that I have returned alive," he said upon his return to Japan, carrying his rusted rifle at his side.
Mehran: lives at the Airport since 1988Mehran Karimi Nasseri, also known as Sir, Alfred Mehran (yes, including the comma), is an Iranian refugee who has been living in the departure lounge of Terminal One in Charles de Gaulle Airport since August 8, 1988. After he was later imprisoned, tortured and expelled from his country, he applied for asylum in many European countries without luck. When he decided to go to the United Kingdom, he claimed that he was mugged, and his shoulder bag stolen while waiting at the RER platform to go to Charles de Gaulle Airport to take a flight to Heathrow. Nasseri managed to board the plane, but when he arrived at Heathrow without the necessary documentation, Heathrow officials sent him back to Charles de Gaulle. Nasseri was unable to prove his identity or his refugee status to the French officials and so he was moved to the Zone d'attente (waiting zone), a holding area for travellers without papers. Nasseri was reportedly the inspiration behind the 2004 movie The Terminal. Unlike Tom Hanks' character in the movie, and since at least 1994, Nasseri does not live in the duty-free transit area but simply in the departure hall, in the circular boutiques and restaurants passage on the lowest floor. He can at least theoretically leave the terminal at any moment, although, since everyone knows him, his departure might not remain unnoticed. He does not seem to speak with anyone normally. With his cart and bags, he almost looks like a traveler, so people either do not notice him or ignore him as if he were a homeless person.
Mitsuo: a japanese Jesus ChristMatayoshi Mitsuo is an eccentric Japanese politician with the conviction that he is the God and Christ.According to his program, he will do the Last Judgement as the Christ but the way to do this is totally within the current political system and its legitimacy. His first step as the Savior is to be appointed the prime minister of Japan. Then he will reform Japanese society and then the United Nations should offer him the honor of its General Secretary. Then Matayoshi Jesus will reign over the whole world with two legitimate authorities, not only religious but also political.
Bihari: most officially dead personLal Bihari (born 1961) is a farmer from Uttar Pradesh, India who was officially dead from 1976 to 1994. He founded Mritak Sangh or the Association of the Dead in Uttar Pradesh, India. He fought Indian government bureaucracy for 18 years to prove that he is alive. When Lal Bihari tried to apply for a bank loan in 1976, he found out that he was officially dead. His uncle had bribed a government official to register him as dead so he would get the ownership of Bihari's land. Bihari discovered at least 100 other people in a similar situation, being officially dead. He formed Mritak Sangh in the Azamgarh district. He and many other members were in danger of being killed by those who had appropriated their property. Nowadays the association has over 20,000 members all over India. By 2004 they had managed to declare four of their members alive. In 2004 he ran for a seat in the parliament of Lal Ganj.
Icke: our salvation from Reptilian HumanoidsDavid Icke, is a former professional football player, BBC television sports presenter, and British Green Party national spokesperson. Since 1990, he has been what he calls a "full-time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world.": reptilians. He dresses only in turquoise and sustains that the world was ruled by a secret group called "The Elite": a race of reptilian humanoids, known in ancient times as the Babylonian Brotherhood, and that many prominent people are descended from them, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, and Kris Kristofferson. He believes that descendants of the reptiles engage in child molestation and Satanism. He is the author of 15 books explaining his views. After a five-hour speech to students, he received a standing ovation at the University of Toronto in 1999.
Bawden: the self-elected Pope Michael I, from KansasDavid Allen Bawden (born 1959), is an American citizen who was elected "Pope Michael I" by a group of six Conclavist or post-Sedevacantist Catholics, arguing that the elections of the last 6 popes were invalid because they are all modernists. Sedevacantists argue that if the College of Cardinals will not or cannot elect a valid pope, ordinary Catholics can do so, under the principle of "Epikeia" (Equity). Acting on the basis of this, David Bawden was elected Pope by six people on 1990 (including himself and his parents). He is still on the job to this day.
Nakamatsu: photographed and analyzed every meal for 34 yearsYoshiro Nakamatsu (born June 26, 1928), a.k.a. Dr. NakaMats, is the Japanese inventor claiming to hold the world record for number of inventions with over 3,000, including the floppy disk and "PyonPyon" spring shoes. He has being photographing and retrospectively analyzing every meal he has consumed during a period of 34 years (and counting). The goal of Nakamatsu is to live over 140 years old.
Lotito: mister eat-it-allMichel Lotito (born June 15, 1950) is a French entertainer. Lotito, who was born in Grenoble, is famous as the consumer of undigestables, and is known as Monsieur Mangetout (Mister Eat-it-all). Lotito's performances are the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and so on in items such as bicycles, televisions, a Cessna 150, and smaller items which are disassembled, cut-up and swallowed. The aircraft took roughly two years to be 'eaten' from 1978 to 1980. He began eating unusual material while a child and has been performing publicly since 1966. Lotito does not often suffer from ill-effects due to his diet, even after the consumption of materials usually considered poisonous. When performing he consumes around a kilogram of material daily, preceding it with mineral oil and drinking considerable quantities of water during the 'meal'. He apparently possesses a stomach and intestine with walls of twice the expected thickness, and his digestive acids are, allegedly, unusually powerful, allowing him to digest a certain portion of his metallic meals.
Strange humming sounds that seem to emanate from the earth near the town of Dulce have added to speculations of an underground facility, as have the presence of military helicopters that have been spotted around the area.An author with the nom de plume of Branton claims to have interviewed former workers at the base who said: "[There] are experiments done on fish, seals, birds and mice that are vastly altered from their original forms. There are multi-armed and multi-legged humans and several cages of humanoid bat-like creatures up to seven feet tall. The aliens have taught the humans a lot about genetics, things both useful and dangerous." The U.S. government denies the base’s existence, but that doesn’t stop the speculation
In September 1931, the Irvings started hearing strange scratching noises coming from their farmhouse’s attic. Soon the scratching became more like a baby ‘gurgling’. The gurgling then evolved to ‘resemble a baby learning to talk and shortly after to mimic certain words that the ‘animal’ seemingly picked up from the Irving family’. If that wasn’t weird enough it described itself as a “an extra, extra clever mongoose,” an “earthbound spirit” and “a ghost in the form of a weasel.” It could even sing.
The case was investigated by Harry Price, but aside from a few grainy photographs of a strange animal roaming the fields outside the house, nothing substantial was ever recorded.
Upon examination, the object – which resembled a hammer head – was found to be encased in a one millimeter thick layer of oxide which suggests that it is some 300-400 years old. A second, Swiss investigation confirmed the results of the first examination. Furthermore, as it was found with mastodon remains it could even be as much as 20,000 years old.
Aluminum is abundant in the earth’s crust but it is always combined with other minerals and the wedge predates the technology used to extract it. An aeronautical engineer suggested that the wedge is similar to the foot of landing gear used on spacecraft. The scientific community believes ‘the wedge was made on earth and its purpose is not yet identified’. Unfortunately, the Aluminum Wedge of Aiud is currently locked away in a secret location; however, some photographs of the curious, unexplained object do exist online.
George MacKenzie (1638–1691), Lord Advocate of Scotland, was a merciless persecutor of the Presbyterian Covenanters in life, and now it seems that he (or something else) has returned from parts unknown to take up residence in his tomb and continue his nefarious deeds.
In 1998, a vagrant broke into his tomb and fell through a rotten lower floor into a plague pit filled with skeletons. Since then, there have been over 450 reports of strange incidents, from people having lost consciousness to inexplicable fires breaking out and an unusually high number of dead animals having been found around the tomb. Visitors have had their fingers broken, hair pulled and been punched or kicked by an invisible assailant. Unexplained bruises, scratches and burns, skin gouges, nausea and numbness are all commonly reported.
The physical signs of attack often go unnoticed until people arrive home and relax or return to their hotels for the night. Witnesses have even reported activity following them home. Whatever lurks within the Black Mausoleum, it is certainly active.
The SS Ourang Medan
It was picked up by nearby ships and listening posts, who identified the vessel as the Dutch freighter SS Ourang Medan and located it within the Strait of Malacca that separates Indonesia from Malaysia. The nearest merchant ship, The Silver Star, raced to her aid. The Silver Star was soon alongside the Dutch ship and their boarding party found a macabre sight: every member of the crew lay dead, their corpses scattered on the decks. More than this, their eyes were still open and expressions of sheer terror were etched on their features. The Silver Star’s party found the radio operator dead too, his hand still on the Morse sending key, eyes wide open and teeth bared. There were no sign of wounds or injuries on any of the bodies.
The decision was made to tow the mysterious ship back to port, but before they could get underway, smoke began emanating from the decks below. The boarding party hurriedly returned to their ship and barely had time to cut the tow lines before the SS Ourang Medan exploded and swiftly sank.
It has been claimed that clouds of noxious natural gases could have bubbled up from fissures in the seabed and engulfed the ship; even aliens and ghosts have been cited as possible explanations for the Ourang Medan’s macabre and mysterious demise. To this day, the exact fate of her crew remains an impenetrable mystery.
But Why Do We Cheat?
Ever since Moses came down from the mountain and perhaps before, tails of extra marital affairs have existed. From the being of time till the end we will be here.When most of us made our promises to be faithful we were serious and we had every intention of keeping our word. But Sometimes we cheat because our sex life sucks or the passion we once had has faded. We feel lonely, we want something new and exciting and to see if we can get away with it. We have an emotional void, a specific gene that makes us geared towards cheating and sometimes we cheat just because we can!
Is It Human Nature To Cheat?
Our Human behavior is not always governed by the vows that were taken and the promises that were made. Human behavior is a product of our innate human nature, our individual experience and environment. Today there are over 4000 distinct mammal species alive on earth and only 3% of them are monogamous. According to Stephen T. Emlen, an expert on evolutionary behavior, monogamy is rare. He describes a great difference between social, genetic and sexual monogamy. Some scientist believe that monogamy, especially sexual monogamy is not natural to human species. If that is true why do some marriages last forever? Is love enough to make us monogamous?
Would you leave your dog alone with a steak? Of course not but you can’t hate the dog for doing what is in its nature, or can you?
The Truth About Why We Cheat
In most cases we cheat to fill an emotional void. We feel connected to our lover in ways that we are not connected to our partner and sex is just an added bonus.
- 75% of men and 65% of women admit to having sex with people they work with
- 68 % of women say they would have an affair if they knew the would never get caught
- 74% of men say they would have an affair if they knew the would never get caught
- 2 years is the average length of an affair
- 60% of men are unfaithful
- 40% of all men have 1 to 2 copies of the specific gene that makes them geared toward cheating
- 12% of cheating men said their mistress was more physically attractive then their wife.
- 66% of cheating men report feeling guilty during the affair
- 81% of women admit they routinely flirt with the opposite sex
No one is 100% sure of why we cheat or if we will stop but here are a few ways to spot.
Signs That We Are Cheating
10.) We stop confiding in you and stop seeking advice from you.
9.) We join the gym, go on a diet, try to improve our appearance.
8.) We start deleting all incoming emails when we used to let them accumulate
7.) We suddenly want more sex, more often.
6.) We seem less comfortable around you.
5.) We are emotionally disconnected.
4.) We appear to be confused and worried most of the time.
3.) We compensate our guilt by saying I love you more often.
2.) We are not so needy of your attention.

Bayi pengsan ditumbuk ibu
KAJANG: Seorang kanak-kanak lelaki berusia setahun lebam di seluruh muka dan berkemungkinan buta mata kanan akibat ditumbuk ibu kandungnya yang di Bandar Sungai Long, di sini, kelmarin.
Dalam kejadian kira-kira jam 9 pagi itu, mangsa dihantar ke Pusat Perubatan Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (PPUKM) untuk rawatan selepas tidak sedarkan diri.
Pemangku Ketua Polis Kajang, Superintendan Azman Ayob berkata, mangsa, Yong Kar Sheng turut cedera di kepala serta patah tulang pelipis sebelah kanan akibat dibelasah ibunya.

4 mayat wanita rentung ditemui
GUATEMALA CITY: Empat mayat wanita yang rentung, termasuk satu yang dimakan anjing, ditemui di pinggir barat ibu negara Guatemala.
Pembunuhan wanita semakin menjadi-jadi di negara itu di mana ia meningkat sekali ganda sejak 2003.
“Kami menemui mayat tiga wanita yang rentung, termasuk satu yang sebahagiannya dimakan oleh anjing,” kata jurucakap sukarelawan bomba, Mario Cruz kepada wartawan, semalam, sehari selepas satu mayat, juga rentung, ditemui di kawasan sama.
Semua mayat itu ditemui dalam beg plastik yang ditinggalkan di sebatang jalan raya di El Cammpanero, 17 kilometer ke barat Guatemala City.
Setakat ini, belum ada mangsa yang dikenalpasti.

Salam perkenalan dari saya buat anda yang ingin mengubah kehidupan ke tahap yang lebih baik demi perjalanan masa hadapan yang jauh untuk kita semua.
Kenapa dengan lirik lagu ‘cinta sempurna’ yang ditulis oleh penyanyi berbakat Negara kita iaitu Yuna atau nama sebenarnya Yunalis Zarai. Sebenarnya kerna penghayatan yang tinggi dari penyanyi ini yang membuat aku kagum dan kekuatan dalam menempuh dugaan semasa yang kadang-kala menguji kekuatan diri kita.
Nama saya Ryees S.Alexander. Seorang pegawai di salah satu syarikat minyak terbesar di Negara kita. Adakah saya berbangga berkerja disana? Ya pada mulanya…..saudara-mara terutama ibubapaku amat bangga apatah lagi dengan kawan-kawan ku. Namun lama-kelamaan, apa yang indah dan gah itu tidak menjanjikan kebahagian untukku….apatah lagi untuk simpanan dimasa tua….Aku mula mempertikaikan diri.
“Cukupkah simpanan kalau-kalau belaku sesuatu padaku?”
“Cukupkah untuk aku pergi melancong ke luar Negara seperti orang lain?”
“Cukupkah makan minum dan pembelanjaan aku yang lain?”
“Cukupkah duit untuk beli rumah yang kian hari makin mahal?”
Dan paling penting…….
“Cukupkah duit untuk aku tampung kedua-dua ibubapaku sekiranya cuma aku tempat bertuduh kelak?”
Dari mana tiba-tiba aku terfikir sebergini?
Bukannya tamakkan duit yang bertimbun-timbun tetapi apabila dugaan yang menguji kesabaran dan ikatan kekeluargaan…..aku hampir tersungkur…menangis namun cuma itu saja yang aku ada….bukan penyelesaian…..bukannya duit datang sendiri…namun jika berusaha dan kekuatan diri menahan nafsu bebelanja sakan.
Dari situ aku cuba mencari perbagai cara untuk menambahkan kewangan diri….dari bekerja secara part time membantu sahabat yang membuka perniagaan kecil-kecilan sehinggakan tubuh ini berkata “CUKUP!” untuk hari ini.
Ya…duit adalah segalanya…namun jangan sampai memakan diri…kenapa aku mencari duit?
~ tidak ingin melihat kedua ibubapaku susah di usia tua.
~ aku ingin menyambung pembelajaran ke tahap yang lebih tinggi.
~ untuk masa hadapan yang terjamin.
Tak salah mencuba dan gagal....aku pernah terjatuh teruk, namun jika kesabaran mengatasi segala rintangan....kita semua bakal tersenyum di masa hadapan

first day of 2011.....
