Surfing the net i found another new and crazy invention:the electric cigarette. This cigarette gives a nicotine hit while still managing to avoid the smoking ban.
The small white stick, which looks just like a proper cigarette, contains a chamber that vapourises pure liquid nicotine into a puff of steam.
Smokers can inhale the vapours as they would a cigarette smoke and still get the buzz - without taking in any harmful substances.


Nicotine is its only ingredient, unlike tobacco alternatives which contain over 4,000 chemicals and tar.
The electric cigarette is battery powered, has a glowing red tip and tastes like the real thing. Makers claim it can be used inside pubs and restaurants despite the national smoking ban as it has no flame and does not produce smoke.
They also say the cigarette cannot cause lung cancer as it only contains nicotine.
The stick, called Gamucci Micro Electronic Cigarette, uses small cartridges which are filled with the liquid substance.



It is rechargeable so it can be used over and over again.If you smoke, this may be a very good solution to quit smoking for good!

Thanks to novel games i found a similar game to the Japanese Iq hiring test. You need to transport all missionaries and cannibals to the other side of the river, and you have to notice that if there are more cannibals than missionaries on one side, the cannibals will eat them. Enjoy this really funny game: The Cannibals and Missionaries Flash Game

Obviously, construction technologies are advancing extremely quickly. Couple that with multi-billionaires / deep-pocketed companies trying to outdo each other in the quest for the next standout design and you have a near-future filled with mile-high skyscrapers and buildings that no longer look like buildings. Below are 9 strange and unique structures which have either been approved or are in the final stages of approval. some have already been partially constructed.Welcome to the future landscape.
1.Aqua Tower, Chicago


From a distance this skyscraper, to be completed in 2009 in Chicago , will seem quite traditional. It'll only be when you get close and look up that you can appreciate the ripple/jelly effect created by variously sized balconies from top to bottom.



2.The phenomenal Chicago Spire, when completed in 2010, will be the world's tallest residential building and the tallest building of any kind in the western world. Seemingly modeled on the image of a giant drill poking through the ground, the 609m structure will dominate the Chicago’s skyline.



3. CCTV Headquarters, China
At a modest 234m the CCTV building isn't going to stand out from a distance, however the design and shape is a crowd stopper to say the least and will be another incredible addition to Beijing 's skyline in time for the 2008 Olympics. The shape, described as a 'z criss-cross' results in a very high, seemingly unsupported corner at the front. let's hope there's a glass floor up there.



4. Regatta Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia
Taking on a nautical theme, the developers say the 10 smaller towers represent sailing boats whilst the larger building is 'the lighthouse'. It's the lighthouse that steals the show for me, possibly the most incredible looking structure I've seen for a long time. If it ends up looking anything close to these pictures I'll be impressed.




5.Residence Antilia, India
Construction has begun on Residence Antilia despite opposition from those who see it as an 'excessive' design in a city where more than 65% of the population live in slums. Politics aside and after you recover from the initial shock of seeing a skyscraper that resembles an Ikea cd rack, the building actually looks like it may succeed as a stunning, unique, green piece of architecture.


6.Russia Tower,Russia
Topped with an Observation Deck over the city of Moscow , Russia Tower will become the tallest building in Europe when completed in 2012 and twice the height of the Eiffel tower. Construction has already started on this angular beast which was designed by Foster & Partners, also responsible for the Gherkin and Spaceport America , currently in development.



7.Penang Global City Centre, Malaysia
Following months of speculation and sturdy opposition, this humungous project is in the final stages of approval and apparently construction will start very soon. Even so, due to the size of the plan it will take at least 15 years to complete. resembling a sci-fi city, the area will be crowned by 2 x 200m towers and completely transform the small island of Penang.



8.Gazprom Headquarters, Russia
This gigantic, 300m tall glass flame of a building will house the Gazprom Headquarters in St. Petersburg , dwarfing all structures in its vicinity. it will apparently change color up to 10 times per day depending on the position of the sun. The building has already been nicknamed 'corn on the cob' by unhappy locals.



9.Burj Dubai, Dubai
This is the big one. when completed next year it will be the tallest man-made structure in the world and the tallest building by a long shot with a predicted height of 818m. Note: currently the tallest building on earth, excluding an antenna, is Taipei 101 in Taiwan which stands at 509m. The photo below is the building's current state: the skyscrapers below the Burj Dubai used to look tall.

Placed at the lobby of the Radisson SAS Hotel in Berlin, the 25 meters high AquaDom is the largest cylindrical aquarium ever built. Filled with about 900,000 liters of seawater, it contains some 2600 fish of 56 species.


Combined with a vast amount of sandblasted glass, the giant AquaDom gives a transparent-like feeling to the lobby. Guests and visitors are able to travel through the aquarium in a glass-enclosed elevator to reach a sightseeing point and restaurant under the glass roof. Two full-time divers are responsible for the care and feeding of the fish and maintenance of the aquarium.



Some of the interior rooms and suites look out over the aquarium, offering "ocean views" of the AquaDom.





The construction

The AquaDom was opened in December 2003. It cost about 12.8 million euros. The acrylic glass cylinder was constructed by the U.S. company Reynolds Polymer Technology. The outside cylinder was manufactured on-site from four pieces; the inside cylinder for the elevator was delivered in one piece. The Aquadom is the largest acrylic glass cylinder in the world, with a diameter of over 11 meters, built on a 9 meters tall concrete foundation.


Victoria falls in Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, Africa, you can find the magnificent Victoria Falls at a height of 128 m. The location is known as "The Devil's Swimming Pool". During the months of September and December, people can swim as close as possible to the edge of the falls without falling over! These falls are becoming well known amongst the "radical tourist" industry as more and more people search for the ultimate experience.I'm kind of afraind of heights,but would you dare to do what these people are doing?





After reading this maybe you'll think twice before taking or buying a new plastic bag.Data released by the United States Environmental Protection Agency shows that somewhere between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year.Less than 1% of bags are recycled. It cost more to recycle a bag than to produce a new one ($4,000 to process and recycle 1 ton of plastic bags, which can then be sold on the commodities market for $32).
A study in 2004 showed oceangoing vessels together dumped 8 million pounds of plastic annually. The real reason that the world's landfills weren't overflowing with plastic was because most of it ended up in an ocean-fill.


Some information
-Plastic bags have been found floating north of the Arctic Circle near Spitzbergen, and as far south as the Falkland Islands
-Plastic bags account for over 10 percent of the debris washed up on the U.S. coastline
-Plastic bags photodegrade:over time they break down into smaller, more toxic petro-polymers
As a consequence microscopic particles can enter the food chain, nearly 200 different species of sea life including whales, dolphins, seals and turtles die due to plastic bags.They die after ingesting plastic bags which they mistake for food






If we use a cloth bag,we can save 6 bags a week, that's 24 bags a month, that's 288 bags a year -> 22,176 bags in an average life time.


If just 1 out of 5 people in our country did this we would save 1,330,560,000,000 bags over our life time.

Bangladesh has banned plastic bags.
China has banned free plastic bags.
Ireland took the lead in Europe, taxing plastic bags in 2002 and have now reduced plastic bag consumption by 90%.
Israel, Canada, western India, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Taiwan, and Singapore have also banned or are moving toward banning the plastic bag



On March 27th 2007, San Francisco becomes first U.S. city to ban plastic bags
www.npr.org (National Public Radio)

Plastic shopping bags are made from polyethylene: a thermoplastic made from oil
Reducing plastic bags will decrease foreign oil dependency.

China will save 37 million barrels of oil each year due to their ban of free plastic bags.

Extreme kayaking

If you want to control your adrenaline rush you should try the extreme kayaking. As you see is very dangerous, but it gives you an amazing sensation.v Enjoy!




This airport is really special. Because the original runway was so short (1400m), so it had to be extended. The runway extension won the iabse ‘outstanding structures award’ and rightly so: due to an obvious lack of land, engineers have supported the extension on 180 pillars, each 70m high. See that under the runway now is a pretty nice parking lot.




On top of Burj Dubai

Here is a picture on top of the Burj Dubai Tower, the tallest building on Earth ever constructed.
Ps: look there, some workers doing their thing!
