The Greatest Soccer Own Goal Ever Scored?

Posted By Ben Goulding, 24 March, 2010 | permalink


(Youtube Link)

When Hadjuk Split played arch-rivals Lokomotiva at the weekend, there was a lot at stake. They were in a tussle for the Europa League spots in the Croatian league. It was a shame therefore, when Hadjuk Split midfielder Goran Rubil scored what was probably the greatest goal of his career… into his own net. His mistake cost them the game which they ended up losing 2-1.

Whoops! Obama’s Talking

Posted By Ben Goulding, 23 March, 2010 | permalink


(Youtube Link)

I hate it when I’m lost in a building and I accidently walk into a room I shouldn’t have. It’s usually followed by silence and a room full of people staring at you. Well that’s what this guy did – the only difference is he had 30 million people staring at him when he stumbled in on Obama’s healthcare speech.

Top 7 Fun But Pointless iPhone Apps

Posted By Ben Goulding, 22 March, 2010 | permalink

iPhone apps are great. Like they say, “there’s an app for just about anything”. Well that’s very true, but sometimes application developers come up with some really stupid ideas. Here are 7 of the best pointless iPhone apps that we still love to download.

#1 – iSnort


(Youtube Link)

Okay kids, this app is not cool but at least it’s better than doing the real thing. iSnort makes it appear that you are cutting up coke and snorting it. The makers say “Go on.. give it a toot… it’s virtually addictive”. Alternatively you could do something more useful and sensible with your £5, like throw it down the drain.

Top 5 Unluckiest People Who Ever Lived

Posted By Ben Goulding, 15 March, 2010 | permalink

#1 – Jason and Jenny Cairns-Lawrence

They have been caught up in three separate terrorist attacks during their vacations.

Jason and Jenny Cairns-Lawrence, from England, were in New York during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Having experienced such a tragic event, they never imagined that they would ever be caught up in another terrorist attack in their lives, but four years later they were.

Jason and Jenny happened to be in London during the worst terrorist attack, the country had ever seen. A series of bombings took place, targeting the underground and overground transport systems, killing 52 people.

By now, Mr and Mrs Cairns-Lawrence could class themselves as the unluckiest tourists in the world, but just three years later, they would be in the wrong place at the wrong time once again.

In 2008, the couple took a vacation to the exotic Indian city of Mumbai. They couldn’t believe it when they were faced with yet another terrorist attack. This time there were more than ten coordinated shooting and bombing attacks across, killing at least 173 people and wounding at least 308.

Jason and Jenny weren’t injured in any of the attacks, so there is a case to say that they are the luckiest couple that ever lived, but I sure hope they warn us about the next time they go traveling.

Woman Calls Cops On Herself For Drink Driving

Posted By Ben Goulding, 3 November, 2009 | permalink

Mary StreyMary Strey is a very honest woman … or maybe just an extremely drunk one. She called police in Clark County, Wisconsin to let them know that she was driving whilst intoxicated.

“Somebody’s really drunk driving down Granton Road,” she told the 911 dispatcher.

The dispatcher asked if Strey was behind the drunk driver, to which she replied “No, I am them.”

The dispatcher asked, “Okay, so you’re calling to report you’re driving drunk?”

“Yes,” Strey said.

The dispatcher told Strey to pull her vehicle over, and she complied. She waited for a deputy to arrive with her hazard lights flashing. According to the police report, Strey failed field sobriety tests, and a preliminary breath test showed she had a blood alcohol content of .19, more than twice the legal limit to drive.

She’s due in court in December, facing charges of first offense operating under the influence.
