Worldwide Places Hit by the Blue Screen Of Death
The Blue Screen of Death has visited most of us more than just a few times. As we use our computers for office, gaming, or regular daily use, the infamous Microsoft error pops up and frustrates us again and again. This error has many different faces and falls under various categories but the outcome is the sameâ€¦anger, denial, and cursing. This recurring incident happens to beginner, intermediate, and expert tech users. We cannot avoid the BSOD and it has become an unwanted guest in our computer. These are worldwide places that were hit by the Blue Screen Of Death visiting our daily lives in public areas, which most of us depend upon. Some of the following are services, some are leisure activities, but all are really annoying.
1. The Paris in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas strip is a major tourist attraction, and the lights, noise and money rolling through keeps people coming. It is unfortunate that the Blue Screen Of Death had to appear in the Paris in Vegas bringing some bystanders down and making people blue.
â€˜What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegasâ€™? Not when the BSOD is involved.
2. Microsoft Error invades Piccadilly Circus
London may be a city that is innovative, continually growing and a major center of the world, but even they had to suffer and be humiliated by a Windows Error.
Rosso caught this one in Piccadilly Circus, and although this particular error is not a classic BSOD, it is a major malfunction nonetheless and deserves a top spot.
3.Video Games Arcade
So here you are walking into an arcade to replace the regular computer screen, office work and are simply looking forward to some senseless arcade spending. You come across a Fast and the Furious Arcade Game that probably charges more than a quarter to play, but something has gone array. It seems it has fallen ill thanks to a certain Operating System, and revoked your driving privileges. You will just have to pick a different game, for this one is here no more. Oh wait, lib_rachel has noticed that the next game has also fallen to the hands of the enemy.
4. Fidelity Investments
If you have invested with Fidelity Investments and then saw a Bluish glow smiling at you outside their building, would you worry about your money?
It may not be their fault, but it is still scary that your money is placed and plagued by the same errors.
Whether you are traveling with your own computer, using an Internet Cafe at the airport, or simply killing time before your flight, would you be worried if you saw the arrival or departure screen has fallen to a display as famous as presented? It may be just one computer, one screen, or just a few seconds, but it may disturb more than a few wondering if it will also hit the big birds in the sky. The third image is the cherry on top. It seems that no airports can get away from the BSOD.
I have been through Prague and also Heathrow on some occasions; usually on a transfer flight. Both are busy airports and are full with travelers looking to get from point A to point B and so on.
The first image may not be the from the New York Subway, but it is a subway hit by an unfortunate decoration that works beautifully with the public transportation lighting below the ground. The trains may try to go fast and leave this embarrassment behind, unfortunately, it was caught on camera, presenting the additional victims.
7. 2008 Beijing Olympics
It has been four years since the previous Summer Olympics, and Beijing has offered a beautiful opening ceremony as we have grown to expect. The only catch is the blue screen of death striking the birdâ€™s nest during this particular Beijing Olympics opening ceremony.
Moreover, this incident occurred during the torch lighting, so there is a major shock value involved, granting extra downtime, frustration, and disappointment.
8. The Big Apple New York
Moreover, if you wanted to get away and use the subways, PoitNarf has noticed that you would have encountered the same crash when getting a Metro Card.
9. Fast Food Restaurants
Can we ever get away from this SOB BSOD?
Even the huge corporation of McDonaldâ€™s cannot deny the power of the Blue.
With all the health issues that surround McDonaldâ€™s food, would you consider this display beneficial for the individual by denying them their order?
10. Gas Stations
How are we supposed to get around without the gas for our cars? Is every single machine using a Windows Operating System as its foundation? iJustine has made sure to get a record of a Windows failure when attempting to get some fuel, and benrodian was also unable to fill up the tank.
With the the high prices of gas, could it possible be that the BSOD actually saved us money?
11. ATM and Parking
As expected, the Blue Screen of Death keeps infecting things that we have become dependent on besides our personal computers. Based on james73_2007, you wouldnâ€™t be able to use the ATM at your local mall and once you decide to leave, paying for parking was difficult for elzapp. a Catch 22: you cannot take out cash at the mall for shopping and cannot leave the parking place to go home.
12. Microsoft Corporationâ€¦
It is pretty hilarious and fulfilling to see the Blue Screen Of Death bite the hand that feeds it. Dear olâ€™ Bill Gates and Microsoft cannot deny the power of the Blue just like all of us. The video presented shows it flat out during a Windows 98 conference with Bill Gates dumbfounded and perhaps a little afraid that the student became stronger then its maker. Do you feel bad for Bill or does a certain satisfaction creep up? Oh the sweet taste of revenge!
Cricket Jokes and Jibes
Sad as it may be the scandals affecting our sport connected to the world of betting have added richly to the lexicon of jokes available over the years. And, as with many such cases when it comes to humor, the fact that they deal with a delicate subject makes them funnier.
Here’s one to get you in the mood; The Pakistani team have issued a statement expressing their shock at the alleged involvement of three Pakistani players in match-fixing. They’ve promised to clean up their act before the 2-1 series defeat to the West Indies next summer.
Or how about the Pakistani international cricketer who refused to take a bribe? And his name? Why itâ€™s â€œAsifâ€ of course!
OK, weâ€™ll go easy on Pakistan now as all that scandal is well and truly behind them and itâ€™s not as if betting on cricket canâ€™t liven up the otherwise dullest of test matches now is it? You can bet on just about anything these days â€“ and with Betfair cricket becomes more exciting â€“ particularly for the real aficionados of the game who understand its subtleties. Thatâ€™s because Betfair is an exchange so you can accept bets as well as make them â€“ acting as the bookmaker as it were. In these cases, someone who really deeply understands the swings of fortune that can occur in a test match can back and lay with Betfair, gradually building their stake up regardless of the outcome if theyâ€™re shrewd enough.
And if bribery really is rife within cricket â€“ then spare a thought for the poor England Twenty20 team Captain Stuart Broad who said after the teamâ€™s poor showing in Bangladesh; â€œI just donâ€™t get it, it was an important game for us so I bribed the umpire, but we still lost!â€
â€œItâ€™s awful isn’t itâ€ said Pakistanâ€™s Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez, â€œit’s getting so bad that you just donâ€™t know who you can trust these days!â€
And finally, while weâ€™re on the subject of unpredictable matches; I’ve been teaching a few hobbits how to play cricket. Bilbo’s not bad at catching, but he can’t really Frodoâ€¦.groan!
Clown Is in Town
Clown Is in Town
Clowns are comical performers, stereotypically characterized by their grotesque appearances: colored wigs, stylistic makeup, outlandish costumes, unusually large footwear, red-nose, etc., who entertain spectators by acting in a hilarious fashion. The types of their acts varies greatly. Although some find clowns to be scary, their intended purpose is to entertain people, especially young children. Peter Berger writes that “It seems plausible that folly and fools, like religion and magic, meet some deeply rooted needs in human society.” For this reason, clowning is often considered an important part of training as a physical performance discipline, partly because tricky subject matter can be dealt with, but also because it requires a high level of risk and play in the performer.
Clowning was developed from a broad tradition of historical performances, and it is difficult to point out a singular tradition or even a few different ones as being the primary precursors to clowns. However there are a few past prominent forms of entertainment contemporarily linked to clowning as its possible antecedents.
Examples of historical, “clown-like” comedic performers have been the pantomimus in ancient Greece, the Lazzi of Commedia dell’Arte, bouffons, court jesters, as well as the French mime tradition. On top of this there are many non-European clowning traditions (including clown-like figures in Japanese Kabuki theatre) to consider which may or may not have influenced what we now think of as a clown.
A whiteface character does not always wear the classic whiteface makeup. Additionally, a character can wear traditional whiteface makeup and be an auguste.
Classic appearance. Traditionally, the whiteface clown uses “clown white” makeup to cover his or her entire face and neck with none of the underlying flesh color showing. In the European whiteface makeup, the ears are painted red. Features, in red and black, are delicate. He or she is traditionally costumed far more extravagantly than the other two clown types, sometimes wearing the ruffled collar and pointed hat which typify the stereotypical “clown suit”.

Transport or transportation is the movement of people and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles, and operations.
Transport infrastructure consists of the fixed installations necessary for transport, and may be roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and pipelines, and terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehouses, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fueling docks and fuel stations), and seaports. Terminals may be used both for interchange of passengers and cargo and for maintenance.
Vehicles traveling on these networks may include automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, trucks, people, helicopters, and aircraft. Operations deal with the way the vehicles are operated, and the procedures set for this purpose including financing, legalities and policies. In the transport industry, operations and ownership of infrastructure can be either public or private, depending on the country and mode.
Passenger transport may be public, where operators provide scheduled services, or private. Freight transport has become focused on containerization, although bulk transport is used for large volumes of durable items. Transport plays an important part in economic growth and globalization, but most types cause air pollution and use large amounts of land. While it is heavily subsidized by governments, good planning of transport is essential to make traffic flow, and restrain urban sprawl.
Bring out the baby in you
Bring out the baby in you
These new set of t-shirts are a part of an ad campaign by Evian. These t-shirts have gained humongous success and have left an impact on people. The ads have been shot by renowned photographer Nathanial Goldberg. The significance of the campaign is to encourage people to bring out the child within themselves.

The t-shirts have been printed in a wide range to cover people of all skins. The ad has been shot using fair skinned and dark skinned people to promote harmony among all cultures and races.

The 10 Most Ridiculous Rapper Chains
The 10 Most Ridiculous Rapper Chains
Rappers love their jewelry. Some rappers don’t even have their own homes but as long as the ice is right, it’s all gravy like Fat Joe’s dinner table. I’ve seen some cool rapper chains…but I’ve also seen a lot of terrible ones. More often than not rappers seem to buy chains for reaction rather than thinking “is this something I’ll actually wear a week from now?” Here are the 10 most ridiculous rapper chains.
10. YUNG BERG
Berg’s chain wasn’t the worst looking one around, but I just don’t understand why this guy hasÂ a Transformers symbol around his neck? Was he in the movie? I used to like to watch The Flintstones but I also have a grip on reality and don’t need an iced out Barney. If you love a certain cartoon tell people on Facebook…not your neck.
9. YUNG JOC
Yung Joc’s chain says “Hustlenomics.” It could also seriously injure a baby. The worst thing about this chain is just how big and terrible it looks…kinda just like a hunk of metal hanging off his neck. The person wearing it doesn’t help the situation either. The “H” is for horrible.
8. GUCCI MANE
Cowabullshit. Why would a grown ass man want this chain? Isn’t your chain supposed to impress women? Imagine screwin’ a chick with Bart Simpson hangin’ on her titties? Yeah sure Bart’s happy but you look like a tool.
7. GHOSTFACE KILLAH
Yes Ghostface used to wear a dinner plate around his neck…he also used to wear a gigantic eagle on his arm. And while the plate does look ridiculous, it also opened the door for everyone to rock chains. Hit your mom’s china cabinet, get some rope and your in business. Even little Ghostface rocked it:
6. VERBAL FROM THE TERIYAKI BOYZ
“Ya colors too bright.” Not too sure what to say about this one. It looks like someone shitted out coloured diamonds and this is what happened. It’s not that surprising since the guy is wearing 3-D glasses. I’d need to be in a drug induced coma to wear this.
5. RICK ROSS
Unless you ARE Jesus Christ, don’t do this. The worst part is that some people probably mistake it for Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince wearing sunglasses. The question remains: Are those sunglasses iced out Ricky is rockin’ real or fake?
4. BUSTA RHYMES
If you are gonna drop serious dollars on a chain, make sure it doesn’t look like it was a 2 for 1 special at the flea market. This shit is just ugly. The “Map Of New York City” portion on top looks like it would break off mad easy and the colours give New York City a sort of Fruity Pebbles vibe. I hope Busta kept the receipt.
* NOTE – T-Pain started off as a rapper and still raps. He counts.
According to T-Pain on Twitter, this chain cost him $410,000. I’m pretty sure there are kids in Ethiopia right now playing darts with a picture of Teddy P. I get the joke. It’s a big ass chain and it says “Big Ass Chain.” Hilarious. You know what else is funny? How dumb it looks.
2. SEAN KINGSTON
There are so many things to dislike about Sean Kingston that it makes it challenging to just focus on the chain. That being said, I’m gonna do my best. First of all why? Does anyone look at this and go “yo Sean that is dope man.” He’s lucky those crayons don’t come out the box ’cause if he wore this around me I’d go straight colouring book status on his eyes.
1. SKOOL BOY
I don’t know who Skool Boy is but I do know he has the most ridiculous chain I’ve ever seen. Look, I love chicken wings but you don’t see me with an iced out 10 piece around my neck do you? I’d imagine even the person he bought this from looked at him like “n*gga is you crazy?” It has gotta be rough when your chain has more buzz than you.
