Coca-Cola, the great producer of carbonated soft drinks simply known as Coke.
Yet what actually goes into Coke has always been a mystery. Until now:
Former Playboy Playmate Hiromi Oshima recently posed for some cool Oscar tribute posters with Playboy.
The first is for the classic Black Belt Jones (1974)
Original poster from 1974 that Hiromi Oshima’s poster was based on:
Here is the (boring by comparison) original.
Does these skis look great or what? Seems that Audi is going to start production of a carbon fiber ski later this year, possibly in some sort of partnership with Head. Supposed to be both light weight and strong; all ski enthusiasts will be waiting eagerly for this one by Audi.
Don’t know anything about the price yet though. Read full article here: The Audi Carbon Ski Concept
A woman playing golf at her Playstation was shocked to se her “self” tee off TOPLESS in a Tiger Woods golf game.
Jo Eley had “spent ages” creating an avatar to make it resemble herself using face-mapping technology. But when she started playing, her avatar was topless and, wearing only white hotpants.
Eley, who will turn 27 shortly, said she believed a programmer put the hidden strip in as a prank after Tiger Woods famous screw around with pornstars that was covered broadly in the media. Jo, the mother of one likes to play the Tiger Woods PGA 11 golf game with her partner Nathan Oliver, where they live in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, UK.
She told a tabloid: “We couldn’t stop laughing. Now I can’t get rid of it. It could have been worse, she looks quite good and has bigger boobs than me.”
PG Electronic Arts responded by saing: “We have extensively investigated and have determined that this situation is not possible through a retail copy of the game. The player model is clearly modified as a result of hacking.”
It is not know if Tiger Woods have shown any interest in switching to Playstation golf following these topless news.
Darco Sangermano, 28, was hit by a stray bullet in front of his shocked girlfriend as they celebrated New Year’s Eve and he was immediately rushed to hospital.
While there and amazingly still conscious, labourer Darco sneezed out the .22 calibre bullet and told doctors that, apart from a strong headache, he felt no other pain.
The bullet entered the right side of his head, went through the muscle, broke the temporal bone, passed behind his eye through the socket, hit a bone in his nose and then lodged in his nostril before being sneezed out.
The incident happened in the southern city of Naples, which has a reputation for lively end-of-year celebrations involving revellers firing live ammunition.
Mr Sangermano was one of three people hit by bullets during festivities and one person was also killed after being hit by a stray round as he watched fireworks with his family in a suburb on the outskirts of the city.
After a check up, Mr Sangermano was discharged from hospital and allowed to return home to Turin with his girlfriend, where his doctor recommended surgery to check the wound.
Professor Sid Berrone carried out a “tidy up operation”, at Turin’s Molinette hospital, on his nose to remove the bone fragments. Mr Sangermano was then discharged.
Professor Berrone said:”He was a very lucky man, he could have been easily killed.
“The bullet went through his temple, behind his eye, entered the nasal cavity and then became lodged in his nostril before he sneezed it out. Amazing.
“He needed surgery just to clean up the wound and get rid of the bone fragments, but other than that he was fine and we expect him to make a full recovery, he won’t even lose the sight of his eye”
Give it to useless media to milk Michael Douglas for his fight against cancer. Shameless shit!
Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary tried to take the papers to the TV news reporter in today’s press conference in Oslo, Norway.
The company is being sharply criticized for its poor working conditions, including from an anonymous Rygge-employee who stands out in Moss Avis today – several trade unions are even boycotting the company.
NRK Østfold reporter Lars Håkon Pedersen experienced it all up close.
NRK’s reporter showed Michael O `Leary an employment contract that she wanted him to comment on. She tried to view a page that did not show the name of the contract owner. O `Leary took the contract out of her hands and tried to look at it,” says Pedersen.
The reporter was able to pull the document back again, so that O `Leary could not see who owned the contract.
What he saw was that it was not an employment contract, but a training contract for six months, “said Pedersen.
The incident happened at a press conference where Ryanair stated that they will have a fourth based plane in place at Moss Airport Rygge in March-April next year.
Conditions resembeling slave labor in Ryanair
The same day that Ryanair held the press conference, an employee spoke out about what he calls slave-like working conditions. The person who spoke to Moss Avis will remain anonymous. “Ryanair is firing people on the day over smaller issues than this. None of us are allowed to speak with the press,” said the employee, which tells of an hourly wage of 16 euros for the time the plane is in the air.
Ryanair again rejects all criticism
All Ryanair staff can theoretically join a union, but it is true that we do not negotiate with unions. We are instead in a dialogue with representatives of our own employees, “said McNamara to Moss Avis.
He denies that the employees will only get paid for the time they are in the air, and that one gets fired for getting too late, if it is not repeated after the warnings.
The mystery “cigar guy” who upstaged Tiger Woods at the Ryder Cup and became an internet sensation is a city analyst from south London called Rupesh Shingadia, it has been disclosed.
The 30-year-old, from Wallington, near Croydon, said he was amazed at the response his stunt had attracted around the world after he became an internet sensation.
Mr Shingadia, an investment analyst at Threadneedle Asset Management, caught the public’s imagination after appearing in the background in one of the most memorable sports photographs of recent times.
It captures the moment a split second before the world No 1 sent a ball smashing into the lens of a Mail on Sunday photographer at Celtic Manor in south Wales last week.
But the presence of a man in an orange wig and Groucho Marx-style moustache, standing nonchalantly while chomping on a cigar in the background soon attracted more attention than the main subject of the extraordinary shot.
The image was soon photoshopped in into pictures of the most dramatic moments of world sport and film posters to feature him.
He confirmed at the weekend that the costume was a light-hearted tribute to Miguel Angel Jimenez, the Spanish golfer, as an unusual way to show his support for the European team.
In a posting on his Facebook page, he wrote: “Thank you everyone for your support and kind words! I cannot believe the responses I’ve got in the past few days!”
He also added the image as his profile picture.
Mr Shingadia, who is single and lives with his parents, said he was embarrassed by the attention but pleased it he had made people laugh.
He told the Mail on Sunday: “I’ve never done anything like this before, I’m just an ordinary guy who loves golf and follows Arsenal.
“If I had known the incredible reaction it would produce, the way that Cigar Guy has snowballed, I would probably never have put on my costume.”
Europe’s golfers regained in thrilling fashion last Monday, defeating the United States by the narrowest of margins.
Colin Montgomerie, the captain, celebrated victory draped in the blue and yellow European flag and with chants of “Europe, Europe, Europe” echoing around the course.
Following a determined fightback by the Americans, it came down to an Ulsterman, Graeme McDowell, to carry Europe over the line, sealing a 14.5 to 13.5-point victory on the 17th hole of the final singles game.
Europe has now won four out of the last five Ryder Cups, but who the fuck cares.
When Tiger Woods duffed a shot at the Ryder Cup, the ball zipped directly toward photographer Mark Pain of the Daily Mail. Pain managed to snap an incredible picture, but his good timing isn’t getting nearly as much attention as a bystander in a funny-looking mustache and wig. Yes, that’s all it takes now to become a celebrity.
The “Cigar Guy” has quickly become the new Chuck Norris, inspiring amateur Photoshop junkies everywhere. The Daily Mail says he dressed in tribute to Spanish golfer Miguel Angel Jimenez, but who knew Cigar Guy also appeared in Donnie Darko? Or knocked out Sonny Liston? Or watched Jack Ruby shoot Lee Harvey Oswald? Got an idea of your own? The website knowyourmeme.com posted a Cigar Guy template.
But who is he? Time pleads on its Newsfeed blog for the man behind the mustache to identify himself. That would probably be pointless, because he’ll never be known by anything but Cigar Guy for the rest of his life. Or at least for the rest of the month, and then a new funny-looking bystander will dominate the Internets.
Interview with photographer Mark Pain:
Harry Smith: Instead of [the golf ball] going high up into the air and over your head, what happened?
Mark Pain: Normally — 99 times out of 100, or for Tiger 99,000 times out of 100,000 — he would just chip that to within two or three inches of the hole. When we’re working with Tiger we’ve never had any problems getting that near to him because we know that it’s never going to be an issue.
But all the grass had been trampled by the spectators and he just seemed to catch it really wrong, and it just dinked out to his right and it just headed straight towards me, hit my camera and then hit me, and then landed at my feet. And Tiger’s face — he almost couldn’t believe it. He couldn’t believe he played such a bad shot, really.
Smith: Did Tiger or his caddie say anything to you like, “You’re really too close, you need to move back a little bit”?
Pain: They did … and then we all moved back. Tiger’s caddie Steve [Williams], he’s got a reputation for being very very strict with us photographers … but no, we were all in a perfect position, and the marshalls had agreed where we were. … There was a very wide angle for him to play a shot into towards the green.
Smith: Was it just instinct that made you click the shot?
Pain: It’s pretty much instinct. … You totally focusing on Tiger’s expression because once the ball goes past you there are still moments there to capture. He can throw his club away, celebrate, do whatever he does.
Smith: And the camera’s okay?
Pain: Camera’s fine. It’s a Nikon D3S, it’s taken a bit of a knock here but it’s absolutely perfect. … And it’s only a month old.
