Woman SURFING almost SWALLOWED by WHALE (Video)



Yesterday, I stumbled upon this amazing footage on a woman surfing off Santa Cruz, California who narrowly escapes from a humpback whale over the weekend. Two hefty Humpback whales fly out of the water right in front of them, and it was all caught on tape by Barb Roettger.






The video has gone viral across the internet and television today as it has already more than 3.1 million viewers as of this posting.

According to the video post, Roettger says:

“A woman floating on a surfboard near Santa Cruz, California almost ended up on the lunch menu for a humpback whale over the weekend. Barb Roettger had her camera rolling as two hefty whales popped out of the calm waters not far from the unsuspecting surfer and a pair of kayakers.

A pod of humpback whales has been hanging out off the Santa Cruz coast, noshing on anchovies that flock to the area to feed on plankton. The woman found herself in the middle of a feeding frenzy called lunge feeding, which occurs when whales herd anchovies and shoot straight up out of the water with their mouth wide open to catch the fish.

The whales have had quite a few dangerous close encounters with humans and boats in recent months. Whale watchers are warned to stay at least 100 yards away from the feeding area. Roettger says she has now gained a greater respect for whales, their feeding patterns and will now only spectate from the decidedly safer dry land.”

Want to KNOW if your CRUSH or someone LIKES YOU?



I was browsing the pages of psychologytoday.com when I stumbled upon this very interesting article about how to know if your crush or someone likes you.





According to Psychology studies, there’s an easy way to find out if someone you're attracted to likes you or not, whether someone is your friend or foe, or whether your employees respect you.

Try to make them laugh!

When someone laughs at your jokes or makes them laugh easily, the more likely it is that they like you. If it doesn't, the answer is likely no. Hmm, sounds interesting to me. They say that people initiate humor to gauge the reaction in a new social circle, in the same way you dip a toe in the water before going for a swim.

They theorized also that humor may serve many functions as it indicates interest towards among potential or ongoing mates, friends, and allies, or among family members.

A Love STORY: Couple married for 72 years die HOLDING HANDS!



A devoted Iowa couple married for 72 years died holding hands in the hospital last week, exactly one hour apart, a tale that will warm your hearts.







True love lasted until the very end, the 90-year-old Norma and 94-year-old Gordon Yeager laid eyes on each other in high school all those years ago. Then, they were married on May 26, 1939, the very day Norma graduated from high school. The couple had four children.

The lasting love story came to sad end when the couple was hospitalized after they met a car accident just outside of Marshalltown, Iowa. Both were placed on the same room in the Intensive Care Unit, where they reportedly held hands most of the time in adjacent beds.

The Yeagers finally died one hour apart, still in holding hands surrounded by their family. Gordon stopped breathing at 3:38pm but amazingly his heart monitor continued to register heartbeats. The hospital nurse was quoted as saying that the heart monitor of Gordon continued to beep because they're holding hands, and it was Norma's heart beat going through them. Her heart was beating through him and picking it up. Then Norma passed away one hour later-- exactly 4:38 p.m.

This is a very inspiring story of unending, extraordinary love. A nature of marriage where as a rule is a lifelong union between a man and a woman.

A MILLION dollar CHINESE Luxury BOAT SINKS Immediately after LAUNCH (Video)



A video circulating on the internet revealed a classic launching of Chinese luxury boat that fails to afloat.





During its unveiling ceremony on September 29th, the vessel SS Jiugang was launched to sea amid much fanfare located at the section of the Yellow River situated at Shenchuan in Lanzhou. But in a horrifying turn of events for the manufacturers, a highly anticipated luxury boat being built by Lanzou City of Gansu province was sunk immediately after the vessel was launched. Luckily, there were no people on board the riverboat, reportedly cost over 17 million RMB (over US$2.5Million) - an expensive sinker.

A translated statement originally reported on Chinese news site iFeng, said that due to improper handling from the builders who mistakenly estimated the water level causing the water level to exceed the limit.

The boat supposedly become the Lanzhou’s largest, most luxurious boat upon completion, with a total length of 32.4 meters, top speed of 22km per hour and a passenger capacity of 80 people.

According to the reports, the boat apparently sat half submerged in the water for a number of days before it was finally grounded. The vessel was not a total loss as Lanzhou City Ministry of Transportation officials pulled the boat ashore and brought it in for repair for a second launching to be held again next month.

Today marks the 39th anniversary of the DECLARATION of MARTIAL LAW (Video)


It's been 39 years (September 21, 1972) since former president and dictator Ferdinand Marcos signed Proclamation No. 1081, placing the entire Philippines under Martial Law and came into force on September 22, 1972, at 9:00 am. The declaration announced on national TV on September 23rd suspending the civil rights and imposed military authority in the country.




Much to the surprise of everyone, the military arrested opposition figures, journalists, student and labor activists, and criminal elements. Without warning, the mass media were brought under tight control. Private armies connected with prominent politicians and other figures were broken up. Pres. Marcos defended the declaration stressing the need for extra powers to dealt with "a conspiracy to overthrow the government" allegedly caused by communists.

Under the president's command, domestic air flights were grounded, campuses were closed and overseas telephone operators refused to accept incoming calls. Initial public reaction to martial law was mostly favourable and accepted the measures calmly for they had been widely anticipated.

On January 17, 1981, three days before the inauguration of President Reagan and one month before the Philippine visit of Pope John Paul II, Pres. Marcos announced the lifting of martial law.

Woman GIVES BIRTH on PAL Flight from Manila to US


A woman named Aida Alamillo flying on a Philippine Airlines PR Flight 104 (Boeing 747) Tuesday (Manila time) went into labor and gave birth to an apparently healthy baby boy at about 30,000 feet above the ground with the assistance from three nurses on board and cabin crew members led by flight steward Francis Lloyd Lobo.




A PAL press release posted on their website said that the passenger, who delivered pre-term at 35 weeks, was aided in doing deep-breathing and relaxation exercises, as a prelude to the birth of her child. Passengers cheered as the baby boy described in the Flight Incident Report (FIR) as having "good skin color" filled the cabin with his cries. The mother was described to have had "minimal pain".

PAL says the plane landed without incident at San Francisco and mother and baby were taken to the Mills Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame. An ambulance and a team of paramedics were alerted prior to the plane's landing.

The PAL flight departed Manila at 10:24PM and arrived San Francisco 7:27PM. Actual time of birth was at 3: 25PM (US time)



Cambodian BOY SUCKS MILKS directly from COW after parents leave


Breast milk іѕ best fοr babies. But, is suckling directly from a cow dangerous to the boy’s health? Well, read the article and let me know your opinion.



Tha Sophat, the 20-month old boy from a Koak Roka Village Siem Reap province, Cambodia, has lived partly on milk he suckles directly from a cow after his parents left him in the care of his grandparents to look for work in Thailand. He started suckling the cow in July after he watched a calf nursing from its mother, and began to imitate the same thing, feeding direcly from the cow each day.

The Cambodian grandfather said the cow didn’t seem to mind the boy suckling but what worried him most is his grandson's health if he continues. He initially prevented the boy from suckling thе cow but his grandson protested it loudly and he gave up. Although, the boy's health seems fine as he is still strong and he doesn't have diarrhea. However, his neighbours are not happy about the nursing and asked the grandfather not to allow the boy to suckle again from the cow.



The Man Who Predicted 9/11 Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Center!


Cyril Richard "Rick" Rescorla has anticipated the potential for an airborne suicide attack on the twin towers and implemented his own designed evacuation procedures that are credited with saving many lives.

On September 11, 2001, Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and two of the planes were flown into the towers of the World Trade Center, a third plane hit the Pentagon and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. The attacks resulted into extensive death and destruction where over 3,000 people have been killed.



After the planes hit the towers, Morgan Stanley security chief Rick Rescorla put into effect plans that he had developed years before. He ignored speaker announcements in the building to remain inside and began the orderly evacuation of Morgan Stanley's employees on 20 floors of WTC 2, and in WTC 5. Despite fears that the building would collapse, Rick returned to the building again, reminded everyone to "be proud to be an American," and sang "God Bless America" to help evacuees stay calm as they left the building. At 10.05am, the south tower collapsed and Rick lost his life.

Amazing!! Cellphone survives 25 meters drop makes Guinness Book of Records (Video)


Rugged phone Sonim XP3300 Force is officially the World's Toughest Phone, securing its entry into the Guinness World Records. Though the specs is not that impressive but it's something worth checking out.

The device survived an extreme drop test from 25 metres onto concrete without operational damage. Previously it has been tested and dragged behind boats and quad bikes, driven over by cars, immersed in ice and concrete, sandblasted and submerged, and still it works. Whew, imagine dropping you smartphones at shoulder level, I'm pretty sure screen shatters everywhere.

Bob Plaschke, CEO, Sonim Technologies commented: “We wanted to stamp Sonim’s name on the World Record, confirming that the Sonim XP3300 Force is the toughest phone in the world. Most mobile phones are drop-tested to a metre, which just isn’t enough in extreme environments such as construction sites, oil rigs or in the forest.”

Very Strange!! This Week's World Earthquakes all near or on 37th Latitude


image credit: http://earthquake.usgs.gov
Have you noticed that a bunch of medium to large scale earthquakes this week all in the same place on or near 37th Latitude? The just recent Colorado earthquake, the Virginia one, Greece last week, Oklahoma today, another in Afghanistan, Japan quake today, and the latest in Central California @ Mammoth Lakes - all at 37th latitude.

One of the godlikeproductions forum comments said that maybe the earth's "wobble bulge" is beginning to bulge on the 37th Latitude due to pole stress and magnetic upheaval.
