Shanghai Then & Now

Excuse my ignorance, but when I glanced at this before and after photo of Shanghai, I thought it was 1900 and 2010. No! It’s 1990 and 2010! What a difference twenty years makes. I find it astonishing how a landscape can change so much when you see the similar skylines of New York and London change with (relatively) no difference over five years, or even ten years – bar 9/11 changing lower Manhattan. I travelled to Hong Kong in 2007 and was astonished at the land reclamation they had achieved in a few decades. The world is changing far more quickly than many of us realise. Maps are being redrawn and entire cities/countries are changing. What an amazing feat of engineering! Hopefully natural will not admonish to this achievement in physical versus natural beauty.

More EPIC Fails

A compilation of some of 2010’s most EPIC failures. Some are stupid but others are the work of fate in a genius way. There’s a lot of idiots in this video and some clips look terrifying but for the most part it should provide you a few laughs. The lorry and the motorway bridge walkway is horrendous but I still get a laugh out of the girls doing ‘sexy time’ on the make shift stripper poles. Enjoy here.

Film 2010

2010 has been a pretty damn good year for the movies. Inception was my standout favourite, but there were a hell of a lot of others that might have slipped your mind or passed you by completely. Watch this wee YouTube clip for a round-up of the year in 6 minutes and 3 seconds.
