This kid is unbelievable and only 2 years old. But forget the age, have you ever seen anyone do anything like this?
The Internet provides the fastest means of relaying information to mass amounts of people in little time at all. Because of this, it can be all too easy to fall for a hoax posted on the web. Pranks have been around for thousands of years, but have gone viral over the past couple of decades. While you might laugh hysterically or shake your head in despair, here are the top ten hoaxes of all time that stemmed from the Internet.
1. Using An Onion To Charge Your IPod
It may be hard to believe now, but a video went viral that made it believable that you can charge an iPod with the electrolytes of an onion. The media covered this story extensively, which had countless people attempting to plug their electronics into onions.
2. Lonelygirl15 Family Cult
Lonelygirl15’s YouTube channel initially concerned the trials and tribulations of a teenage girl. Shortly thereafter, she began talking about a family cult that kept her confined to her house. It generated tons of interest until the elaborate story was debunked a few months later.
3. Bill Gates Giving Away Money
It was believed that the wealthy Bill Gates was giving away money to anyone that forwarded a chain mail letter about Microsoft’s email tracking. Though it began in 1997 and has been debunked, it still circulates through emails to this day.
4. Monstrous Iraq Camel Spiders
An email showing pictures and describing spiders of 10 inch length that could run up to 25 miles per hour and jump multiple feet in the air surfaced in 2004 encouraging people to sympathize with our soldiers in Iraq. While the photo is real, it was simply taken at an angle that boasts the size of the spider.
5. Bigfoot Found
What looked like Bigfoot in a cooler turned out to be just a costume that cost one man $50,000. Two men posted a photo of supposed Bigfoot that went viral with Internet media. They now face charges for selling the fake body.
6. Drunken Web Surfing
Congress was under fire for allegedly wanting to pass a bill that banned drunken web surfing. This believable hoax garnered so much attention that Senator Kennedy addressed and denied the issue.
7. Hercules Dog
In 2007, a picture of a monster dog surfaced. In the photo he is near a horse and is close to the same size. The photo and description visited many inboxes, but later deemed a hoax.
8. 3 Waterspouts
The National Weather Service debunked a picture of three waterspouts approaching a container ship in 2002. While it is a nifty looking photograph, it came from Photoshop and is not real.
9. Derbyshire Fairy
A man produced a fake corpse that he claimed was a fairy. He put it on eBay in hopes of selling this unique creature. Though over 20,000 people visited in one day, he eventually admitted it was just a hoax.
10. Google TV
Rumors have been circulating GoogleTV since 2007, which made it easy to believe that Mark Erickson found the way into the company’s beta version of it. UPDATE: The good news is it seems it may be becoming a reality.
Internet hoaxes are fairly common because of the speed that information spreads online. If you were interested reading about these top pranks, then you should search for others as there are hundreds more available to entertain.
It’s called gutter oil. It’s a manufactured cooking oil made from old scraps of animal fat and, get this, raw sewage. It is collected in nasty barrels and sent to various street food vendors and restaurants in China. Experts estimate that a whopping 10% of all cooking oil is “gutter oil.”

There is very little that causes more arguments on a team then two people fighting over which role they want to play before a round begins. This is a problem that a lot of League of Legends players have complained about, with people sniping preferred positions or refusing to play if they didn’t get their way.
League of Legends developers are looking into a new game selection option on the beta servers to see if they can put an end to some of these problems, once and for all. The new Team Builder set will allow players to select specific rolls, positions or champions before they join a team so they will only be matched with teams where their preferences will fit.
Beta Testing on the Servers
The Team Builder program will be live from March 3-7 through the EUNE and RU servers and will stay open on the beta testing servers for these regions for 48 hours.
• The official announcements post on the League of Legends page outlines specifically when this beta test will be scheduled for each region.
• Once the Team Builder beta goes live it will be running alongside the normal draft pick for unranked games in Summoner’s Rift. This will be a separate cue so only those using the Team Builder can be matched within this option.
• As a way to keep people from abusing this option, players that reject a lot of games can be penalized by losing their Team Builder access or being given a longer cool-down. A specific number of game rejections that would get punished haven’t been listed.
When you are using the Team Builder you won’t be able to pick more than one role which can limit your ability to be flexible if you are having trouble finding a team. But picking specific roles that you can follow might offer ELO boosting services an additional edge for players.
Are you the head of a company? Do you have an office set up for your workers? Do you have printers, scanners, copy machines, and other office devices set up all over the place? If so, you’re burning both time and money. What sense does it make to have your staff going all over the place to get one task done after the other? How much of their time every day is spent simply walking around the main floor? Poor planning is usually the first step towards a businesses downfall. Maybe it’s time to take a hard look at how you’re running things.
It is time you managed print services for your company and hire a professional in the printing field. They have seen these bad habits all over in their years of operation and are experts when it comes to centralizing your company’s print equipment. Every work space should have a singular room dedicated solely to hosting all of your equipment. What this does is give everyone a destination for all their needs. No matter if they have to print, copy, fax, scan, or whatever else, your workers know where to go. This helps cut down on aimlessly wandering around, trying to figure out what’s where, and if what they need is even working. So, right there, one problem down, one to go.
Use www.cartridgesupplier.com for your printing needs.
Centralizing your equipment also saves the company money. When everything is in the same place, it’s easier to keep tabs on the functional state of it all. How often have you seen a broken printer sitting on someone’s desk for years, for no other reason than no one knows it’s broken in the first place?
With an equipment room, problems are instantly noticeable, and repairs can happen as soon as they’re reported. On top of that, outdated models are easy to spot, helping you phase them out in exchange for more recent, capable versions. If you’re spending more of your time fixing something than using it, that’s only costing you money at the end of the day.
Sure, there’s a lot to deal with when you’re in charge. It’s not easy having to run a company, handle the marketing and promotion, make sure your employees are well taken care of, keep on top of the bills and the taxes, and everything else that comes with the position. So, why make your job harder than you need to? Assessing your printing needs could be a first step in eliminating waste. Your company should be running at peak efficiency at all times. Anything less, and your wallet’s going to feel it.
Home schooled children are not only taught by their parents, but by online classes as well. As their teacher, you the parent can enjoy the freedom of online schooling as an aid to assist in your daily lessons. This allows your child access to literally the knowledge of the entire world, thanks to the internet. That’s one huge advantage they have to kids in public school.
Sometimes, kids work better individually than in big groups. If yours is one of them, than having a one on one teaching experience is going to help ensure that nothing goes over their heads. Also, if they are confused, they’re less likely to feel embarrassed about asking you to repeat it. You want your kid to feel comfortable and relaxed when learning- not paranoid and on edge, warranted or not.
No one knows your child better than you do. This allows you to craft a more tailored experience for them than a teacher (or series of teachers) would be able to on their own. You know their strengths, as well as their weaknesses, and can create a learning environment that plays to both, helping them in one regard, and bolstering the other.
Schools are loud. They’re busy. It can be hard to focus, let alone think and form cohesive thoughts, ideas, and questions. Home schooling allows for a more peaceful environment- one that your child is familiar with, as well. With less distractions, your kid will be able to learn and comprehend faster than they would be able to in a huge setting like a school. And isn’t that what it all comes down to? Shouldn’t your kid be able to focus properly?
By knowing all these things about your child, you will know when to push them to try harder, and when to ease off. A teacher dealing with thirty to forty kids in a single class can’t always keep each and every one of their personalities straight in their heads, and this can lead to not everyone getting equal or proper treatment.

Here’s the real question. Why are you trying to make an indoor room look like the outdoors, when you can simply take the room outside? No, I’m not nuts. (Well, maybe a little.) It’s being done in homes all over the world… even the ones that don’t necessarily have perfect weather all year round. That’s why it’s so important that you not skimp when it comes to the quality and design of your outdoor room décor, appliances and accessories. Mother Nature can be a real… um, witch when it comes to the longevity of outdoor furnishings.
The days when a room consisted of four walls and a roof are merely a page in history. These days a room can be made of nothing more than a two-sided tent, an overhang, or an awning and all of the accessories and/or appliances that would normally have been contained in the same room, albeit indoors. This trend has taken a firm hold and shows no signs of waning in the near future. Particularly when you consider how some of the outdoor room furnishings are built to last.

These rooms can include garden rooms, kitchens, dining areas and entertainment centers! Can you enclose your ‘outdoor room’? Of course you can. By using more windows than walls, and maybe even a skylight, you can create the perfect Florida room that will truly have that outdoor feel to it.
First, decide which of the above mentioned rooms you want to create. That will determine what you need in the way of furnishings, appliances and accessories. If you simply want a nice area in which to relax, kick back and enjoy the outdoors consider this:
? A grill (good old fashioned charcoal or clean burning propane… it doesn’t matter). Consider putting some sort of fireproof shelter of sorts over your grill for inclement weather.
? A sturdy, well made, long lasting dining set and extra chairs. Teak is the best material for outdoor use but cedar is a close second. Just don’t skimp here – you want to use that furniture for a long time.
? A fire pit. The perfect way to wrap up your day – seated around a nice warm fire.
Think about adding some outdoor heaters so that you can extend your outdoor party season just that much longer. Done right, your outdoor room can function very nearly year round.

In one of Woody Allen’s movies, his character was introduced to a woman who just turned 83. He told her that she didn’t look a day over 82. Obviously, it was a great punch line, but we all fear that truth: that we look our age or close to it. In itself, looking our age is really not a bad thing, especially if we are lucky enough to make it to our eighties; but our society seems to frown on not appearing fit, youthful and younger looking than we are.
The older generation has always been shunned, in one way or another, even if people are nice about it. The younger generation wants to take its place in the work force and who can blame them for being in a hurry. The over forty crowd wanted the same thing when they were young too.
A lot of people today, however, are getting fit and maintaining their health for different reasons other than bowing to the pressure of our social order. They see the reality and the opportunity of actually living longer lives. And they want that longer life to be healthy.
Health experts also strongly suggest that you get plenty of fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Fruit and vegetables can do wonders for your body. They give you more energy, make your skin look younger and generally give you a vibrancy that you may not have seen in yourself for years.
If, for some reason, you can’t get fresh veggies and fruit, there are many supplements, especially goji berry that are exceptionally full of nutrients, which will enrich your life. These are readily available and contain many of the benefits that a fresh fruit or vegetable salad has, and there are no dishes to wash.
The most common advice that medical and fitness experts give to people who want to become healthier is to exercise and eat healthy. Many doctors recommend just getting out of the house and walking several times a week. That’s easy enough if you truly want to change your health for the better. One woman started walking a half-mile a day and then gradually built it up to one and a half miles a day in a few weeks. Her blood pressure went down, along with her weight, and she began to sleep better by using a sleep aid. Imagine, just by walking!
