''Electric Shock Prank'' (WATCH VIDEO)

The Man Who Claimed To Have Had No Food Or Drink For 70 Years.

Prahlad Jani was held in isolation in a hospital in Ahmedabad, Gurjarat, where he was closely monitored by India's defence research organization, who believe he may have a genuine quality which could help save lives.

He spent six days without food or water under strict observation and doctors say his body did not show any adverse effects from hunger or dehydration.

Mr Jani, who claims to have left home aged seven and lived as a wandering sadhu or holy man in Rajasthan, is regarded as a 'breatharian' who can live on a 'spiritual life-force' alone. He believes he is sustained by a goddess who pours an 'elixir' through a hole in his palate. His claims have been supported by an Indian doctor who specializes in studies of people who claim supernatural abilities, but he has also been dismissed by others as a "village fraud."

See Photo: The Loneliest Whale In The World.

In 2004, The New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem:

She isn’t like any other baleen whale. Unlike all other whales, she doesn’t have friends. She doesn’t have a family. She doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. She doesn’t have a lover. She never had one. Her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. But her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. It is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz. You see, that’s precisely the problem. No other whales can hear her. Every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. Each cry ignored. And, with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by.

Kobe Bryant’s Wife, Vanessa, Drops Divorce

According to TMZ, Vanessa — through her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser – filed to end her marriage in December, 2011.  Several months later … Kobe — in an attempt to win her back — deeded over his interest in their 3 Newport Beach mansions.
Since she filed, Vanessa and Kobe were on-again, off-again like high school students.
But in the last month … they got very tight.  A turning point seemed to be the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert at Madison Square Garden in NYC, when the two left arm-in-arm.  They spent New Year’s Eve together, were spotted at lunch and have pretty much been inseparable.
There have been reports that Kobe is getting back with Vanessa because it’s cheaper to keep her … but that’s just not true.  Fact is … we’ve checked property records and Vanessa still owns 2 of the Newport Beach mansions — she just sold the third for $3.2 mil.  We don’t know for sure, but it seems like Kobe may have signed a post-nup, giving Vanessa more financial leverage in the relationship.
So now, Kobe, Vanessa and the 2 kids are one big happy family again.

Janet Jackson’s Billionaire Fiance Rips Up Prenup And Gurantees Her $500 Million If They Divorce

MICHAEL JACKSON’S sister Janet did not put off her New Year’s Eve wedding because of cold feet but because of cold cash, a friend has revealed.
The singer was due to marry Arab ­multi-billionaire Wissam Al Mana but their lawyers could not organise the prenuptial agreement in time. This is no small matter as twice-­married Janet has amassed a fortune of £93.5million from 10 hit albums and six major tours while Wissam is one of the richest investors in the Middle East where he represents such fashion and style icons as Hermes and Sonia Rykiel. He is also a major shareholder in Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Dubai, Doha, Bahrain and Kuwait.

20 Year-Old Woman Stuck In Toddler’s Body

Another oddity, well medical oddity! Has caused a 20 year-old lady not to develop physically and mentally, leaving her a “toddler”

Brooke Greenberg is a 20year-old lady but after a glance at her, you need nobody to tell you “she’s a toddler”. She was born in 1993, yet somehow both her mind and her body failed in developing beyond infancy.

In other words: physically and mentally speaking, her age is somewhere between one and three years. As her father, Howard Greenberg, put it, “From age one to four, Brooke changed. She got a little bit bigger. But age four, four to five, she stopped.”

Doctors explain that, for the time being, they are busy trying to pin down the genetic mutation responsible for Brooke’s being a 20-year-old toddler.

Obama Administration Revokes Lucky Igbinedon’s Visa

The embattled former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, may no longer enter the US, according to sources in Washington, DC.

A source revealed that the American consular authorities had written to Mr. Igbinedion to tell him that he was no longer welcome in the US.

Another source indicated that the former governor, who has been convicted for corrupt practices shortly after his governorship term, had multiple entry visas to the US. However, he has received a letter revoking his visa.

Mr. Igbinedion was a two-term governor in Edo State where he looted the treasury mindlessly, according to documents gathered by the EFCC.

According to Sahara Reporters, the US government is currently reviewing the files of some of Nigeria’s current and former government officials and will deny them visas once they are considered undesirable on account of their engagement in corruption.

With widespread rumours that Ghanaian star actress, Jackie Appiah has finally divorced her husband, and she would certainly be free to move on with another man.

Could Nigerian actor and activist Michael Bobby Obodo be the new man in her life, as the pair have been spotted together several times in Accra in the past few weeks?

Nigerian woman dies twice. Buried in Nigeria, resurfaces in Benin Republic dies again.

Her story reads like a thriller: the type only a great novelist could spin. However, the somewhat grace-to-grass context and the many twists and turns of her life’s tale could make some of the classic tragedies spun by dramatist extraordinaire Sophocles of ancient Greece appear less calamitous.
First she died in Nigeria, was properly buried and forgotten, then suddenly she appeared in Benin Republic with a new life. Now she’s dead again. And then the real dead end.

To be candid, ruminating on this woman’s chequered sojourn on earth invoked Figure it out for yourself, the title of one of scores of crime thrillers by James Hardley Chase; for, at the end of series of fragmetary sequences; you are still left wondering, if you got this one right.

The Man Without A Heart.

Doctors from the Texas Heart Institute have successfully replaced a patient’s heart with a device that keeps the blood flowing, thereby allowing him to live without a detectable heartbeat or even a pulse. Here’s how it works:

The turbine-like device, that are simple whirling rotors, developed by the doctors does not beat like a heart, rather provides a ‘continuous... flow’ like a garden hose.

Craig Lewis was a 55-year-old, dying from amyloidosis, which causes a build-up of abnormal proteins. The proteins clog the organs so much that they stop working, according to NPR.

Police Finds Alligator Guarding Marijuana In Bedroom

Strange things happen everyday. This time, officers performing a routine probation check on a northern California man yesterday were shocked to find that he had some 34 pounds of marijuana in his rented house.
But they were more startled to discover the animal guarding it – a five-foot alligator named Mr Teeth.

Deputies stopped by Mayar’s two-story rental home in Castro Valley on Wednesday afternoon to perform a probation compliance check.
Alameda County Sgt. J.D. Nelson said that while inspecting the house, officers discovered 34 pounds of dried, processed marijuana in Mayar’s bedroom.
Next to the pot was a Plexiglas tank containing the alligator. Sgt Nelson said that the massive reptile was likely used as a deterrent for would-be marijuana thieves.

The sheriff’s department called in backup from the Fish and Game department. The sergeant said that stumbling upon an alligator was highly unusual. ‘We come across guard dogs like pit bulls quite frequently, but a guard alligator is very unusual,’ he said. KTVU notes that the married father-of-two has several dogs, including a pit bull, in his rental house.
Mayar purchased Mr Teeth in 1996 to ‘commemorate the death of rapper Tupac Shakur,’ Sgt Nelson said.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Assif Mayar, 32, and took his illegal pet to the Oakland Zoo.

“I’m Next Lagos State Governor” — Ganiyu Solomon

The Senate Minority Whip, Senator Ganiyu Olanrewaju Solomon, Thursday said he would be the next governor of Lagos State, come 2015.
Speaking on one-on-one, an interactive programme on the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), Solomon who represents Lagos West Senatorial district, said with his experience and developmental vision nursed over the years for the state, he was more than prepared to take the state further.
This sort of declaration,  would be the first time that any intending governorship aspirant in the state, irrespective of political party would come out to indicate interest in Lagos governorship race in the countdown to 2015. Others who had been previously quoted as nursing similar ambition have had cause to deny the attribution for one political reason or the other.

Hands-On With The Lockitron, The Easiest Way To Control Your House’s Locks With A Smartphone (video)

Lockitron’s Cameron Robertson stopped by our CES booth for a little demo. It doesn’t take much to demo the Lockitron. It’s a little wireless device that slips onto a deadbolt and can be controlled by a smartphone. Put it on your house. Put it on a rental property. Put it on your cat. To be honest, the story of Lockitron is much more interesting than the Lockitron itself. The Lockitron is the company’s second project, and they intended to turn to Kickstarter to fund it. But as Robertson explains in the video, that wasn’t going to stop the YC alums. They made their own crowdfunding platform and surpassed their required goal within 24 hours. It’s clear that people love the Lockitron.

Charles Osborne - The Story Of A Man Who Had Hiccups For 68 Years.

Charles Osborne (1894-1991) had the hiccups non-stop for approximately 68 years, from 1922 to June 5th, 1990. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, this is the longest bout of the hiccups ever recorded.

His hiccups first started in 1922 while weighing a hog for slaughter. As he says, “I was hanging a 350 pound hog for butchering. I picked it up and then I fell down. I felt nothing, but the doctor said later that I busted a blood vessel the size of a pin in my brain.” The result being that he damaged a small part of his brain that inhibits the hiccup response, according to Dr. Terence Anthoney who treated Osborne later in life.

In the beginning, Osborne’s hiccups occurred at a rate of around 40 times per minute on average. Throughout his life, this gradually slowed to about 20 hiccups per minute until they finally stopped mysteriously about one year before his death in 1991. It is estimated that he hiccuped over 430 million times in his lifetime!

The Story Of A Chinese Couple Who Lived In Seclusion For 50 Years To Be Able To Live Together.

Over 50 years ago, a 19-year-old man named Liu fell in love with an 29-year-old widow named Xu. Because of the age difference they were not able to be together so they fled up a mountain and lived life out of a cave. There was no electricity or water in the cave, but the two made it livable.

Nollywood Actor Ibrahim Chatta's Wife Cries Out - He Has Abandoned Me And Our Son

Report reaching us indicate that the wife of Ibrahim Chatta has cried out that he abandoned her and their only son. If that is true, that's not good at all.
That the Nollywood actor, Ibrahim Chatta is a famous actor cannot be contested. He has been making relevance in the Yoruba genre of the movie industry for a decade or more now .

If you recall that we served you a story of how he hooked a Senator’s daughter, Salamat Mohammed in a traditional/Islamic wedding last December 30th, 2012, as you are reading this, the wedding is said to be creating hullaballoo in his household. How? Well, a source hinted us that not many people know that the popular actor was or (is it is self?) married to a lady in Ilorin also and they both have a son named, Malik.
A reliable source told that the son actually has been abandoned with his mother by Ibraham Chatta for months. Though, Islamically, he’s said to have the right to marry as many wives as possible as long as he has the wherewithal to take care of them all, Ibrahim has, however, left his responsibility to marry another wife who is a daughter of Alhaji Mohammed Shaaba Lafiagi, the Senator representing Kwara North Senatorial District.

Sources said the wife has been crying her heart out that her husband abandoned them because of his greed for a Senator’s daughter. All effort to reach Ibrahim on this story was aborted but as soon as we hear his own side of the story, we shall bring it to your notice as soon as possible.

The Story Of The Strangest Couple In History - Al And Jeanie Tomaini

Al (Aurelio) Tomaini was born in 1912 in New Jersey as one of seven children. By the age of twelve he towered over his father – a stout man who stood over six feet in height. Al had an overactive pituitary gland and he eventually stood over seven feet in height. To earn a career in sideshow, Al claimed a height of 8’4” and billed himself as ‘The Tallest Man in the World’. No one seemed to mind Al’s embellishment, due mostly to the fact that Al was an incredibly genuine and nice guy. He was shy, gentle and sweet inside and out – from the top of his towering head to the bottom of his size 27 shoes. During the Great Lakes Exposition in 1936, one special young lady took a particular interest in the gentle giant with the coy smile.

Her name was Jeanie (Berniece Evelyn Smith) and she was born on August 23rd in 1916 in Blufton, Indiana with twisted arms and without legs. She ‘stood’ just over two feet in height but, in personality, Jeanie was a giant in her own right. Jeanie had been performing in exhibitions since the age of three and was known for her acrobatic dexterity and the nimble way she ran about on her mildly deformed hands. Originally exhibited by her biological mother, Jeanie had been under the abusive care of an adoptive mother since 1931. The pretty but resilient 19 year old endured the psychological abuse with little hope of escape but, when the sincere flames of romance sparked between her and Al Tomaini, she found a gargantuan protector who would forever lift her out of harm’s way.
