The Anti-Gravity Man

Johan Lorbeer is a German street performer. He became famous in the past few years because of his "Still-Life" Performances, which took place in the public area. His installations includes "Proletarian Mural" and "Tarzan", which are famous in Germany. Several of these performances feature Lorbeer in an apparently impossible position.

On May 14, 2008, an Azande high court accused Lorbeer of practicing witchcraft. The basis of this accusation is a recently published metareview, which compiled and analyzed the data concerning rates of impotence among his male (and German female) audiences. Thus, he has cancelled his plans to perform his "Thinker" pose while perched atop a pregnant white rhino.

Although this trick seems genuine, it is not magic. He manages these positions by hiding his actual arm under his clothing and the 'arm' that is seen sticking to the wall is a support bar.

Here’s a little clue on the trick; His arm is the supporting bar, and his real arm is hide inside his cloth.


Barack Obama Loosens White House Dress Code

Just over a week into his new digs, and Barack Obama is already shaking things up in the White House. He's changing up the dress code and having a small shindig for Congressional machers.

President Obama in a meeting last week in the Oval Office, where his predecessor required a coat and tie at all times.

He's ditched the jacket-and-tie-only rule for the Oval Office that his predecessor George W. Bush mandated , while also instituting a weekend business casual dress code for the White House staff. Time to open up that L.L. Bean catalog, Obama staffers, and pick out your perfect Saturday khakis.

Obama has also using the space to entertain a little. On Wednesday evening he held a cocktail gathering for some House and Senate movers and shakers of both parties he'll desperately need in the coming months was reportedly a success. According to Slate, he's part of a long tradition of presidents who gets things done by unhitching a notch or two in the evening hours :

" Harry Truman favored bourbon and branch water. (As vice president, Truman had just arrived to have a bourbon with House Speaker Sam Rayburn when he got the call that FDR had died.) When he was president, LBJ came to the Capitol on several occasions for an after-work drink with Senate Republican leader Everett Dirksen. [...] FDR won the presidency on a platform of ending Prohibition. Every evening, including during the war, Roosevelt mixed drinks in the Oval Office from behind his desk, before him a tray equipped with whatever he needed for the martinis or old fashioneds he was mixing. "

While it may be traditional, Obama is now taking some lumps for sipping libations while the economy burns. News that wagyu beef was served at the cocktail party has raced around the conservative blogosphere today, raising questions of why the president would serve something that can cost up to $100 per serving when hundred of thousands are losing their jobs. Typical is this comment from ThatSamIam at Michelle Malkin's blog :

" Anyone surprised? Of course they will spend big on everything. That’s what socialist progressive liberals do because they consider our money their money. "

If the Obama White House is going to be a more casual affair, could we suggest maybe something a bit more low-key for the next shindig? Some deviled eggs and one of the Safeway vegetable plates, perhaps.

Extreme Viking Festival In Shetland

The Largs Viking Festival started in the 1980s, as a small-scale celebration of the Battle of Largs. The Battle is also commemorated by the monument popularly known as The Pencil.

You cannot miss the importance of Vikings to Largs - with a number of references to Vikings around the town - including street names, the amusement arcade and the Viking who stands outside the Main Street chippie. There is also more serious commemoration such as the Vikingar, which is an interactive exhibit with storytellers telling Viking tales and myths and the yearly Håkon Håkonsson Lecture.

There was also the mysterious painting of the Battle of unknown origin done on the wall of what used to be the Victoria Hotel. Rediscovered some ten years ago sadly it has disappeared once more, since the Victoria Hotel is now no more and even the business which replaced it now lies derelict.

Originally, only a few Viking re-enactors were involved and the organisers attracted some of Largs homegrown talent – such as Benny Gallagher of Gallagher and Lyle, who is still going strong.

Over the years it has grown in size and in importance and so has the entertainment – in past years involving RAF displays over Largs Bay, longships and funfairs and every year a Viking Village is now built on the promenade.

Of course, the best-loved part is the finale on the second Saturday night where a large number of Viking re-enactors take to the field in front of the Pencil and recreate the Battle of Largs in all its splendour, followed by a ceremonial boat-burning and a firework display.

Almost 1,000 Vikings arrived in Shetland to celebrate the islands' Nordic heritage. The guizers, known as the Jarl Squad, came by boat...

...and other, less traditional, modes of transport .

Up Helly Aa festival saw the Vikings march through the Lerwick city streets...

...and quench their mighty Viking thirsts at inns .

The annual event, widely regarded as Europe's biggest and best fire festival, continued as a torchlight procession when night fell .

Tourism chiefs in Shetland estimated a crowd size of 5,000 onlookers as the procession made its way...

...culminating in a 30-foot longboat being set alight .

The festival began in the 19th Century and is descended from the ancient festival of Yule, which the Vikings held to celebrate the rebirth of the sun .

Although it originated as a Norse pagan festival it was then adopted by Christians to celebrate the end of the Christian Holy period with feasting and bonfires ..

Top 10 Biggest Computer Viruses Ever

Jerusalem (1987) ... one of the earliest and most successful viruses activated each year on Friday the 13th — either displaying a message or deleting any programs that ran on the day. The virus, dubbed Jerusalem, installed itself in the target computer's memory when an infected file was opened.

Early versions of Jerusalem — one instance of which was found in a military office in Israel — repeatedly infected files until the computer became overwhelmed by their size. It remained active throughout the 1990s, infecting many computers in enterprises and government offices and becoming a popular template for future viruses due to its simple code.

Stoned (1987) ... old viruses never die — that was the warning from anti-virus experts after the Stoned virus resurfaced in 2007, a full 13 years after it was written. The Stoned — or Marijuana — virus became widespread in the early 1990s. It was the most successful virus in terms of number of infections, infiltrating hard drives and the boot sector of floppy disks.

The most common effect of Stoned was to display a message on the screen when the computer started up that read: "Your PC is now stoned. Legalise marijuana." There are more than 90 variants of the virus — and last year it resurfaced to infect a number of laptops running Microsoft Windows after anti-virus programs detected the virus but failed to remove it.

Tequila (1991) ... one of the first widespread viruses to use stealth techniques in order to avoid detection, Tequila was particularly dangerous as it couldn't be removed from the infected computer's memory.

Tequila infected computers by writing an unencrypted copy of itself to sectors of the system hard disk and modifying the master boot record. It used a scrambling method to avoid disassembly, changing itself from one infection to the next.

Michelangelo (1991) ... the Michelangelo virus sparked a media frenzy in 1992, one year after its discovery. After spreading quietly for months, the virus activated on March 6, 1991 — the birth date of its namesake — destroying data on tens of thousands of computers by overwriting parts of the hard disk with random data.

In the weeks before March 6, 1992, the Michelangelo virus became a major news event with constant warnings about its destructive potential. The media coverage descended into hysteria with predictions Michelangelo would wipe out millions of computers. However when March 6 finally arrived only around 10,000 computers were infected, and anti-virus companies were accused of creating hype about the virus to increase sales.

ILOVEYOU (2000) ... as the internet became more popular virus creators turned to programs such as worms — pieces of malicious code that, unlike viruses, are not attached to a "host" file and can reproduce themselves.

The most destructive worm of all time was ILOVEYOU, also known as LoveLetter, which spread by email and disguised itself as a romantic message to the recipient. If opened, it would send itself to everyone in the user's address book, clogging email systems around the world.

ILOVEYOU reached up to 45 million people in one day, causing more than $5 billion of damage with large corporations including the Pentagon and British Parliament forced to shut down their email systems.

Monopoly (2000) ... working in a similar way to ILOVEYOU, the Monopoly worm sent itself by email boasting "proof" that Microsoft boss Bill Gates was guilty of monopoly. At the time, Microsoft was immersed in a legal battle over its attempts to bundle Internet Explorer with its Windows operating system which led to accusations of abusing monopoly power.

The worm was delivered through an attachment called "Monopoly.vbs" that, when opened, displayed an humorous image of Bill Gates on a Monopoly game board. It then attempted to mass-mail itself to all of the user's Outlook contacts.

AnnaKournikova (2001) ... more a nuisance than a threat, this worm masqueraded as a picture of tennis star Anna Kournikova and relied on the public's fondness for the blonde pin-up in order to spread itself.

AnnaKournikova was short-lived and spread via Outlook email with the subject line "Here you have, ;o)", with an attachment called AnnaKournikova.jpg.vbs. Once opened, the worm copied itself to the Windows directory and sent the file to all contacts in the user's Outlook address book.

AnnaKournikova scourged numerous Australian Federal Government Departments and large companies, with some receiving thousands of emails per hour. The worm's creator said he wanted to pay homage to Anna Kournikova as she "deserves some attention". He succeeded spectacularly.

Nimda (2001) ... before Nimda, worms were spread simply by copying or emailing themselves. Nimda used this method but also moved via server-to-server web traffic, infecting shared network hard drives and downloading itself to users who were browsing websites hosted on infected servers.

The result was hundreds of thousands of infections on servers and home computers and a slowdown in internet traffic as Nimda searched for vulnerable servers to attack. Some media reports suggested there may be a link between the virus and Al-Qaeda, as the worm was released in September 2001 — though this was proven to be false .

Sasser (2004) ... a German teenager boasted about becoming the hero of his class after writing the potent Sasser worm that could spread without user intervention. Sasser exploited a operating system flaw, prompting some computers using Windows XP and Windows 2000 systems to continually crash and reboot. However it was easily stopped by a well-configured firewall or by Windows Update downloads.

Sasser caused disruption worldwide, halting Australia's Railcorp trains as operators couldn't communicate with signalmen and forcing the cancellation of 40 Delta Air Lines trans-Atlantic flights. Over 400 post office branches in Taiwan had to revert to using pen and paper after more than a thousand of its machines were hit by the virus.

Storm (2007) ... the worst virus to hit computers in recent times, Storm is classed as a "superworm". It has become well-known for the way it constantly morphs into new forms and finds ways to exploit people's weaknesses. In 2007 it infected thousands of computers by masquerading as an email about a weather disaster, and then mutated and spread with another fake attachment infecting 10 million computers.

Storm continues to infect unsuspecting users today, with subject lines focusing on a range of topics from Facebook to love interests. Recent versions can disguise themselves from virus scans and even shut down security programs. A warning has been issued about emails claiming the Beijing Olympics will be delayed or cancelled due to earthquake damage, which appear to contain a link to a video but in fact are the Storm worm in disguise.
