I H8 Justin Bieber!

Justin Bieber 
 MAN do i HATE this guy...what a douche bag!

I saw this article on BBC News top 10 and it actually made my day!

During one of his concerts in Dubai, some random person appears out of nowhere and tackles the shit out of bieber; knocking over the piano...i sure hope nothing happened to that piano ;)

Unfortunately i cannot embed the video on this blog because youtube has removed the function...propably to preserve his "Image"...yeah right!

Anywho, you can follow the hyperlink further down on the article; OR you can just search it on youtube yourself.

From the BBC:

A member of the audience at Justin Bieber's stage show in Dubai tackled the singer from behind while he was performing at a grand piano.

Bieber managed to free himself and ran to the side of the stage while security guards grabbed the intruder, who managed to knock the piano over and onto its side.

The singer later retweeted descriptions of the "mayhem".

He later tweeted: "Dubai. Nothing stops the show. 2 more to go."

Footage on YouTube shows Bieber carried on performing while security guards removed the fan and picked up the piano.

He is in the middle of a world tour called Believe which began last September and includes about 100 dates.

'Wasn't a prank'
Reports said that the globally successful 19-year-old took a three-minute break after the on-stage fracas before returning to sing Boyfriend and then Baby.

His guitarist and musical director Dan Kanter later tweeted: "It wasn't a prank. Someone ran on stage during Believe and the piano got knocked off its platform. Everyone is fine. No need to worry!"

Bieber has not been short of headlines recently. Last month he provoked fierce online criticism with his message in a guestbook at the Anne Frank Museum, saying he hoped the Holocaust victim would have been a fan.

The Canadian pop idol wrote: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

The museum defended the star but added his comment "wasn't very sensible".

Easter holidays with a twist!

Dear Infinity readers,

I would like to wish you all a happy Easter holiday! I hope your weekends are filled with lots of fun, good food and most of all; great company! 

However i would also like to open your eyes to some of the beautiful customs that take place around Greece, on these holy days.

In this instance i will talk a little bit about the Rocket-War that takes place on the Island of Chios; in the small town of Vrontados because i want to show the world just how crazy us Chiotes/Xiotes can get hehe (and for some guerilla marketing for the island)

Rouketopolemos (Greek Рουκετοπόλεμος, literally Rocket-War) is the name of a local traditional event held annually at Easter in the town of Vrontados (Βροντάδος) on the Greek island of Chios. As a variation of the Greek habit of throwing fireworks during the celebration of the service at midnight before Easter Sunday, two rival church congregations in the town perform a "Rocket War" by firing tens of thousands of home-made rockets across town, with the objective of hitting the bell tower of the church of the other side. The rockets are wooden sticks loaded with an explosive mixture containing gunpowder and launched from grooved platforms.

The two rival parishes are St. Mark's 

 and Panaghia Erythiani ("Red Madonna")

The respective churches built on two hilltops about 400 meters away from each other. Direct hits on each belfry are supposedly counted on the next day to determine the winner, but each parish invariably claims victory over the other.

The result of this apparent disagreement is that both parishes agree to settle the score next year, and the rivalry is thus perpetuated. The church buildings themselves and the nearby buildings have to be extensively boarded up and protected with metal sheets and mesh for the occasion. 

Several Vrontadites regularly express their dismay at the explosive nature of the custom, but it is a source of significant tourist revenue for the area.

The origin of this event is unclear, but local tradition holds that it goes back to the Ottoman era. 

According to local lore it was earlier performed with real cannons, until Ottoman authorities prohibited their use in 1889. (YIKES! Getting loose with cannons huh?)

My expirience from this event when i have participated is very intense. I remember vividly being situated between both churches and looking up into the sky and seeing thousands of golden flares shooting accross the sky. IT WAS UNREAL! and FUCKING TERRIFYING! and very cool at the same time. A once in a lifetime expirience.

Sooo, if next year your planning on doing a little something more "explosive" then make sure to check out the beautiful island of Chio and this unique event!

Thank you and enjoy your Easter holidays!

Put this up on 720 HD And prepare to have your mind blown!


One of the quirkier innovations Gizmag has clapped eyes on at this year's CES, the HAPIfork is an electronic eating utensil that monitors the extent and rate of your eating. The HAPIfork was originally developed for clinical use to encourage slower eating, with the aim of combating weight gain from hurried eating that some research suggests doesn't give the body the time it needs to feel full from more moderate food intake. Additionally, HAPILABS claims that its HAPIfork will reduce digestive problems and gastric reflux associated with rapid ingestion.

In essence this is a fork with an engorged handle, containing a host of electronics, including a Micro US connector, capacitive detection, a vibration pack, two LEDs, all of which are powered by a 3.7 V lithium polymer battery. Together these make a fork that times not only how long it takes you to eat a meal, and, by knowing when the fork is lifted to the mouth, the rate at which food is eaten. Apparently an LED will blink at you disparagingly if the HAPIfork thinks you're eating too fast.

Soup eaters take note: when demonstrated at CES, Gizmag saw the HAPIfork also fitted with a spoon attachment, so upon its release the HAPIfork my prove more versatile than the name implies.
The HAPIfork will also talk to the HAPILABS Suite, an online dashboard and mobile app that logs data pertaining to meals, sleep and exercise and reports data over time in the form of stats and graphs. Apparently one call also share "HAPImoments," or pictures and videos to you and me, bringing social networking features to the Suite (albeit with an awful awful awful name).

While I quite like the idea of a "smart fork" that can quietly monitor my eating habits and, through accompanying software, show my data in, er, easy to digest form, I'm less keen on the idea of uppity cutlery telling me what to do. The benefits of eating slower won't be news to anyone that keeps an eye on the health and science press, or to anyone that has tried it for themselves. Having an LED indicator flash at you to tell you to slow down suggests this device could actually reinforce mentally-disengaged, eating in front of the TV, say. But perhaps I'm a luddite uncomfortable with outsourcing self-restraint to a piece of garish plastic (though the black and white options are fine, in fairness).

The Verge reports that a USB version of the HAPIfork will launch in Q2 of this year for US$99.99. A Bluetooth-equipped edition which can be paired with a mobile device is apparently set for Q3.

Flying cars were always a pie-in-the-sky proposition, but hologram calls and many other bold tech ideas have hit snags.

1. Hologram calls

The hope: Soon we'll be chatting with our friends in life-size, 3-D, holographic form -- beamed right into our living rooms! Even cell phones will pop out little avatar versions of the person at the other end of the line.

The reality: Video chat services like Skype and Apple's (AAPL) FaceTime are something of a replacement for, er, face time. But hologram calls remain relegated to sci-fi movies and experimental labs.

What's the deal? Until very recently, the technology required to create hologram calls was overly complicated and expensive. 3-D was still a pipe dream. Videos were too large to transmit quickly.

Now, all of those technologies exist in our living rooms -- and researchers are harnessing those advances in order to develop hologram technology. It's still experimental and expensive, and most consumer Internet speeds are still too slow to make 3-D videos stream reliably. But the tech is getting close.

The Human Media Lab at Canada's Queen's University is working on holographic chat called "TeleHuman," which uses Microsoft (MSFT) Kinect sensors, a 3-D projector, and cylindrical displays. RGBD Toolkit, which is backed by Carnegie Mellon, works with Kinect-DSLR camera combinations.

2. Cryonics and zombies

The hope: Why be dead forever, when we can just freeze our bodies and reanimate decades later when someone figures out how to revive us?

The reality: The Cryonics Institute and Alcor Life Extension Foundation have already cryo-preserved hundreds of people. But no human "patient" has yet been brought back to life.

What's the deal? The prospect of cryo-preservation has been around since 1962, when Robert Ettinger published a book called "The Prospect of Immortality." It's been popularized in movies like "Vanilla Sky", and the body of baseball great Ted Williams was frozen in 2002.

According to the Cryonics Institute, the process involves "cooling legally-dead people to liquid nitrogen temperature where physical decay essentially stops, in the hope that future technologically advanced scientific procedures will someday be able to revive them." No cryopreserved mammal has been revived, but insects (and something called "vinegar eels") have come back to life. A few types of human tissue, cells, and organs have also been "revived."

But Williams may have to wait a while to swing the bat again. Robert Freitas, senior research fellow at the Institute for Molecular Manufacturing, predicts the first human reanimation won't happen until around 2040 or 2050.

3. Spam-free inboxes

The hope: "Two years from now, spam will be solved," Bill Gates proclaimed in 2004.

The reality: Er, not so much. According to Gates' own Microsoft, spam accounted for an astounding 97% of all email sent in 2008. The anti-spam technology has improved somewhat, but progress is slow: 71% of last month's email was spam, says Kaspersky Labs.

What's the deal? As spam-blocking technology becomes more advanced, so do the spammers.

"These days, spam is moving into a realm of truly professional development," said Christopher Budd, threats communications manager at Trend Micro (TMICY). "Some spammers are even hiring editors to make sure their English is good."

Budd pointed out that any security system has limits. Spammers are cooking up increasingly more technical ways to infiltrate victims' computers, and spam-blocking technology has to catch up.

So a completely spam-less world will likely never come to pass -- and you should still delete that email from the prince of Nigeria.

4. Robots to do our bidding

The hope: I really don't feel like doing the dishes. Can't someone make a robot to do this stuff?

The reality: You still have to do the dishes.

What's the deal? Scientists have made major advances over the past decade in robotics and artificial intelligence, but you'll be waiting a long time for affordable, autonomous robots that can do your chores.

Measuring the progress of robot development depends on your definition of "robot." IBM's (IBM) Watson supercomputer is one of the most famous examples of machine intelligence: It battled humans on "Jeopardy," learned Urban Dictionary slang, and is being used to help physicians diagnose ailments. But "he" won't do your laundry.

Annual tech shows routinely showcase humanoid robots. However, most are early prototypes that can walk around and dance -- but not learn. Honda (HMC) unveiled its ASIMO robot in 2000. Newer versions can kick a soccer ball or step aside when a human walks in its path. But ASIMO doesn't really have real-world applications yet.

Buy yourself a Roomba in the meantime.

5. Cord-cutting

The hope: Thanks to Netflix (NFLX), Hulu, Amazon (AMZN) Prime, and other streaming services, no one will need to shell out $100 a month for cable.

The reality: The streaming-video space is now choked with competitors, and they're falling all over each other to sign exclusive contracts. So no provider offers all (or even most) TV shows and movies. According to the most recent data available from Nielsen, more than 58 million households still have a pay-TV subscription.

What's the deal? Pay-TV's biggest advantage is that streaming services can't offer shows as quickly as cable. Forget about live events like sports.

Still, some services aren't content to merely stream older, licensed content. Netflix is now churning out several original series, including the Kevin Spacey vehicle "House of Cards." Amazon Studios greenlighted six original pilots in December and has added a handful more since then.

Meanwhile, even sports and other live events are slowly trickling out of the cable realm. lets users stream baseball games for $20 a month, and the NFL offers a variety of streaming and audio-only options.

6. Connected home

The hope: Sensors, wireless connections and special routers can create a Jetsons-esque connected home. Your fridge and cabinet will "talk" to each other and let you know that if you pick up some chocolate, you'll have all of the ingredients for a killer devil's food cake.

The reality: The components necessary for a connected home are finally cheap enough to make this a reality. AT&T (T) and Sony (SNE) have already shown off lots of cool home-control technology -- but each company's platform is incompatible with the others.

What's the deal? Each connected-home system works differently, and the platforms don't talk to each other. So consumers either have to stick to one platform, or shell out for extra equipment to bridge the gap. That severely limits consumer choice.

Still, connected-home demos are finally catching up to the Jetsons fantasy. AT&T's home security platform, expected to roll out nationwide this year, lets customers control door locks, lights, ovens, and thermostats using a smartphone or tablet. Intel (INTC) has a similar experimental platform that links household gadgets through machine-to-machine connections.

Mainstream adoption is likely still a few years away though. Earlier this month, Microsoft posted a connected-home "conceptual" video of technology the company says could be 5-10 years down the road.

Worst attempt at parallel parking! And you thought Greece was bad...

This video is 14 minutes long, and it shows the worst attempt at a parallel parking by a woman in Belfast!

It even garnered enough attention for it to be placed on BBC New's top 10!

Whats even funnier i think are the reactions and the commentary by the lads recording the whole thing...

This is unbelievable...they even offered to help but no cigar!

From the BBC:

A video of an unfortunate woman trying to park her car in a Belfast street has become an internet sensation.
It shows a female driver taking about 30 minutes and several attempts to reverse her car into a space between two vehicles on Fitzroy Avenue in the Holyland area.

The hapless attempt at parallel parking was captured on a mobile phone, after a group of students from a nearby house saw the scene unfold.

They uploaded the footage to Youtube, named it The World's Worst Attempt at Parallel Parking, Enjoy, and it has now been viewed more than 700,000 times.

A blow-by-blow commentary was given by Ciaran Doherty and Ciaran Shannon and their friends, which undoubtedly helped the footage go viral.

Ciaran told the BBC: "One of the boys in the house was looking out the window having a wee bit of fresh air and saw it. The next thing we were all at the window and looking out.

"We were looking at it for a good 15 minutes before we started videoing it. I offered to park the car for her. I can't believe she couldn't get it in. It could easily have fitted a big people carrier in that space."

The students' comments on the video include: "What is she doing, like?" and "this has been going on for 20 minutes".

BBC Newsline's Tara Mills challenged one of the students, Ciaran, to parallel park 

They cheer when the woman appears to be mastering the task in hand, shouting such encouragement as "go on get her in, go on ye girl ye".

But then the students fall about laughing as the woman appears to be carrying out a three-point turn instead of parking.

They shout "women drivers" and "man she's nuts, she's turning too early" and "ah no, she's coming back out".
At one stage the commentary is reminiscent of a reality TV show, as one of the students shouts: "Day five".

After 30 minutes, when the car is finally parked, the watching students whoop with delight and give the poor woman a round of applause.

The other Ciaran said: "We found it quite funny. It was crazy. The space is big enough for the car to fit in.
"I drive myself and have had plenty of problems trying to park cars. That was an exception."

Ciaran Shannon initially put up the footage on his Facebook page but never imagined that it would have such a huge response.

"It was only a joke between my friends on Facebook, the next morning there were 30,000 views," he said.

The boys admit they were perhaps a little unkind to the woman but would love to track her down.

"We've been trying to find her. We've been up and down the streets, but no such luck yet," said Ciaran.

His friend told the BBC: "We want to see her view of the story. We would like to meet her and just talk to her."

If they ever find her, perhaps she would tell them that true grit and determination pay off in the end. As any woman knows!

Snoop Lion?!

Snoop Dogg evolves into Snoop Lion, claims he is Bob Marley reincarnated (VIDEO)

Rastafarian priests gave Snoop Dogg the new identity Snoop Lion during his spiritual awakening, as the music icon records first reggae album.

“Reincarnated,” a documentary, follows Snoop Dogg as he journeys to Jamaica to record an album with Diplo.

“Reincarnated,” a documentary, follows Snoop Dogg as he journeys to Jamaica to record an album with Diplo.

Snoop went to Jamaica a Dogg but returned a Lion after a religious and artistic awakening.
Rastafarian priests bestowed the new moniker Snoop Lion upon the music icon when he visited Jamaica in search of "a new path."

"I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' And he looked me in my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light; you are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there," he explained at a press conference.
Born Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr., Lion has always felt a special connection with Jamaica's most celebrated music legend, according to "I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated," Lion said. "I feel I have always been a Rastafari. I just didn't have my third eye open, but it's wide open right now."

This spiritual development has revived Lion's artistic energy. After years in the music industry, rap started to stale for the 40-year-old music icon. Ever since he appeared on the scene with "Doggystyle" in the early 1990s, Snoop has been a prominent player in west coast hip-hop. But Lion welcomes musical change and growth.

While in Jamaica, Snoop finds himself embraced by the Jamaican people, and is positively impacted by Rastafarian culture.

"I've been on the top ever since I've been in it," he explained. "I got rap songs that will never die. And that ain't with no disrespect but I'm tired of rap."

While in the studio, he distanced himself from his musical past by referring to Snoop Dogg in the third person. "F*** Snoop Dogg. Don't think about none of the s*** he rapped about: hustling and making money and drug-dealing and shooting. All that s***'ll be out of here," he said to his collaborators in the studio.

Snoop Dogg says he was “born again” during his visit to Jamaica in February, changed his name to Snoop Lion and is ready to make music that his “kids and grandparents can listen to.” The artist known for gangster rap is releasing a reggae album called “Reincarnated” in the fall.

With reggae, Lion has the chance to create music that all ages can enjoy - from children to his grandparents, who might not have been able to enjoy his harder-edged rap catalogue.

"I'm a wise man in the music industry," he said. "Not that I'll never do rap again because I'm always gonna do what I love, but right now I'm Snoop Lion and I'm having fun with this reggae movement so hopefully you guys will enjoy it as well."

Vice Films - in association with Snoopadelic Films - will release a documentary about the artist's transformation from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 7.
Snoop Lion's first single is "La La La."
