Holy Cow!

Is it a bird? is it a plane? no its just a run of the mill sky diving cow! I read this amazing story recently about a cow plummeted about 200ft from the sky and landed on the bonnet of a couples minivan as they were driving down the road.

Charles Everson, Jr and his wife Linda were driving back from a church service near Manson, in Washington state, when the cow incident occurred. As they drove beneath a cliff, The cow toppled over the edge, plunged 200ft, and smashed into the bonnet of their minivan.
Everson told local newspaper The Wenatchee World: 'It was “bam”- you just saw something come down and hit the hood.'
'I'm like, “I don't believe this, I don't believe this, I don't believe this,”' he added.
The 600lb cow, who was put down at the scene, was identified as Michelle the Cow, a cow owned by Rockin A Rodeo Bulls. Michelle the cow had been at a breeding facility, but had escaped – only for her dreams of freedom to end up nose-diving off a cliff and being dashed on a minivan.
Michelle's owner, Rena Albertson, paid tribute to Michelle: 'She is very missed and I have yet to figure out how to tell our children what happened to her.'

It's amazing that the couple both were ok now they have such good story to tell however it was a very sad day for the cow, maybe we are going to need to start strapping parachute's on them.

Would You Indulge In The World's Most Expensive Desserts?

If you've got both expensive taste and a sweet tooth then you may want to add at a least a few, if not all, of the world's most expensive desserts to your wish list of things to try. The list topper (and therefore THE most expensive dessert in the world) is The Fortress Aquamarine from Wine3 at The Fortress in Galle, Sri Lanka. The focus of the sweet treat is an 80-carat aquamarine gem resting on a specially shaped sliver of fine chocolate representative of the company's logo. It's a gorgeous looking dessert, but not many have any idea if it tastes equally as good since priced at $14,500 After you have gobbled the dessert, you can put the gemstone in your pocket. Till now, has yet to sell their first one.

I am a passionate dessert ~lover, I love tiramisu and blackforest cake. I sure splurge to one thing, for once besides food, bags, shoes, dresess but I am not totally sure why anyone would pay $14,500 on a single dessert. Personally I can't figure out why it would be worth it,
ridiculously expensive, love dessert, but this is ridiculous. gosh I don't have money to throw away in the first place I mean it looks beautiful and I like surprises (an 80carat aquamarine is Quite the surprise) but it's too much. Like others said, just because you have the money doesn't mean you should spend it like a crazy person. Have some self control. I wonder what the quality of the aquamarine is. I know they scratch pretty easily, so if it's in with food, that might be kinda weird. It better be PERFECT for that price.These are all very pretty works of art that I would never spend money on even if I had that to throw away. Its dessert! you eat it and it goes down the toilet eventually (sorry for the less then pretty vision). I wonder if they even taste good.

Anyways, I was watching the t.v a few days ago, and it said :“$25K - Cost of Serendipity 3’s “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate,” a blend of 28 cocoas infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold that will be unveiled today by Guinness World Records officials as the “Most Expensive Dessert in the World.” Served in a goblet lined with edible gold, the dessert is eaten with a solid 18-karat gold spoon encrusted with diamonds.

You've been X'ed:

I always love to watch Jamie Kennedy Show,Jk, is a pretty funny guy and a good character comedian the video below is a funny experiment that he did,
He is pranking (X'ing) some wine testers who think they are meeting a business man who is going to open wine shops in the same way that Starbucks have with there coffee shops,
however they then tell the wine testers that he has just had a jaw operation and has his jaw wired open but is still going to join them tasting the wine :-)

I couldn't stop laughing when he spills it all over himself, and spits it on the woman next to him, I think he acts at being drunk very well, I LOVED when he stared at them.. and started screaming, There was also a very funny episode when he X'ed a boy band saying he was replacing one of the members of there band, but I can't find that Video at the moment if I do I will post it soon.

Windows on our tables? Microsofts new Milan PC

Years ago if someone said the word 'Windows' most of us would have thought they were talking about those things on our houses that let us look outside, but nowadays we are just as likely to think of Microsoft's PC operating system,
maybe in years to come when we say 'table' is going to mean a lot more then the place we put our coffee cup's, recently Microsoft unveiled it's Microsoft surface tabletop 'Milan' computer.

it's a bit like those old space invaders tables that you found in some bar's but a million times more clever, it's a table top PC that will be able to do all the things that you are doing with yours at the moment and more, firstly you can throw the mouse and keyboard out of the Microsoft 'windows' you will be able to use yours hands to to do all of the things that want to do,
say you want to upload some pictures to you PC simply place a wifi compatible camera on the screen and the picture will appear on the screen imsently then using your hands you can more re-size it and put it in any folder you like, and in the same way in the future surfing the web will possible in just the same way,
and one of the greatest advantages of this technologies plus more than one person can use it a time, which could totally change the way we use our PC's forever,

it will however be a while before most of our are able to get one of these to play with in our home's it's going to be the business world that first has access like T-mobile who are going to use the new PC systems to help sell there phones you will be able to get information about the phones and more more just by putting the phone on the table,
at first the price tag is going to be quite large as in around $10.000 dollars but as this technology gets mass produced it the price tag should fall to price that hopefully won't be much more than a top of the range standard PC is.
it might be quite a while we see one with coffee cup rings and dinner plates on.
