Today I found out there was actually a replica of the Spear of Longinus as seen on the cult anime series, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Spear of Longinus, if you don’t already know, is one of the many biblical references in the series. It appeared in the original series several times, including what-I-thought was the most breathtaking moment when Eva Unit 00 piloted by Rei hurled the Spear of Longinus like a javelin into the Earth’s orbit, killing the Angel loitering in the orbit.

This is, folks. Another year is drawing to a close, fast, and with it, we usher in a New Year. Man, is it me of did a year just went by in a snap? As always, sending off an old year and welcoming a new year calls for a reflection. A reflection of what we have achieved and what plan to achieve in a brand new year. Well, about latter… we rather not talk about it because, we don’t think we have achieved anything. Google constant change in search algorithms in 2018 have put us down quite a bit, but moving forward, we are looking to refreshing the site, hopefully with aesthetic that will be more pleasing to most readers’ eyes and an UI that will be more intuitive. Hopefully. Continue reading Mikeshouts Wishes Everyone A Fabulous And Happy 2019!
Attempts to cross the vast expanse of oceans, traveling from one continent to another, using anything other than commercial means are not new, but an attempt on a vessel with zero propulsion? Well, that is new (and crazy, if I might add). Regardless of the lunacy, such is what French gramp, 71-year-old Jean-Jaques Savin, is currently doing. And I can tell you this: if we were to post about this a month late, it’d still be news because, current. Continue reading 71-Year-Old French Is Crossing Atlantic In A Barrel-Like Vessel
In Japan, people auctioned tuna which you probably already know, but I bet you do not know that Japanese ornamental fishes, specifically Japanese Koi, are being auctioned too and one such auction yielded a record transaction for a prized specimen of a recognizable breed. At the Sakai Fish Farm Auction, which took place on October 4th, 2018, a female Koi named S Legend was auctioned off for a whopping 203-freaking-million Yen (about US$1.8 million!). Continue reading Someone Bought A Japanese Koi For A Mind-blowing $1.8M!
Underground electric garages are cool. It makes you feel a little James Bond–ish while having an extra parking space in a space starved compound, but that is until this happen. What you see here was a freak accident where an underground electric garage went berserk and crushed the roof of a Jeep park atop. Apparently, there was a flood below ground, shorting out the control unit which then triggered the lifting with the Jeep still up top. No thanks to the thoughtful overhang there, the roof of that lovely Jeep Wrangler was completely destroyed. Continue reading Electric Garage Malfunctioned, Crushes Jeep Wrangler
If you’re running your own business, promoting it is vital if you want to attract new clients. There are many different ways this can be done, but picking the right one can be a challenge.

Time flies. A blink of an eye, we are counting down to yet another new year. Man, didn’t we just did that not too long ago? No?Hmmm. In 24 hours (or less, depending on where on Earth you are), it will be Christmas and with it, means the year is drawing to close, like super fast. It was quite a year for us. The traffic did finally see some promising result and hopefully, with your help, we will get back to where we once were. Fingers crossed (dang it. it’s hard to type with fingers crossed, btw). That’s our only wish for 2019 (in addition to having unlimited wishes). Continue reading Mikeshouts Wish Everyone A Merry Christmas And A Happy 2019!
I am sure we are all familiar with Home Alone (Fox, 1990), the Christmas comedy blockbuster that propelled the then 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin into super stardom. The film details how the young protagonist, Kevin McCallister, got on with day-to-day life when his parents accidentally left him alone at home and how he handled burglars hellbent in entering his home. Continue reading How Home Alone Would Have Been If Kevin Had Google Assistant
Russia is not particularly known for technological advancement, but apparently, one reporter from Russian state TV did not get that memo and got really pumped, praising a robot that appeared at a Russian state-sponsored event. The reporter commented that “(Robot Boris) has already learned to dance and he’s not that bad.” Sure, it was convincing as hell, but there is just one problem here: Boris turned out to be a man in a robot suit.Continue reading Russia’s Supposed Advanced Robot Turns Out To Be A Man In Robot Suit
What a strange modern day tale we have here. We just read that during Samsung launch event for Galaxy A8s in China, the South Korea handset maker also announced that it is partnering with streetwear label Supreme in future products. Apparently, even the executives of the fashion label were present, on stage. But here’s the twist: none of the executives were actually from Supreme NY; they were from the other Supreme.
