275x250.jpgToy Story has been named as the movie which most likely to make men blubber after it topped a list of the top 10 films which make grown men cry.

A survey of male movie fans found the animated Pixar classic - which tells the story of a jealous cowboy toy - often makes men cry.

It was followed in the list by tear-prompters by Forrest Gump and Return of the Jedi, which ends with the heroic Luke Skywalker finally defeating the evil Empire.

Other movies which make men cry include ET, Jerry McGuire, Titanic and the Shawshank Redemption.

Bizarrely the Jennifer Aniston film Marley And Me was also on the list… presumably because men weep at being forced to watch such a more movie.

275x250.jpgAfter using 9,852 slices of toast to create a portrait of her mother-in-law for a 50th birthday present, Laura Hadland is at it again.

This time as a 'present' for her movie fan husband, artist Laura has created a Avatar Navi mosaic -- using 4,000 blu-ray discs.

Over several hours the discs of varying colours were placed on the floor to form the face of a Navi alien from the James Cameron blockbuster.

Laura then revealed the image to her husband, and as we haven't been told how impressed he was with it we're guessing it didn't go too well.

Actually, if you know Laura and have got a birthday coming up soon, you might want to ask her for a gift voucher… before she goes and buys 8,654 slices of bacon.

275x250.jpg A US woman has become an internet hit after solving a puzzle on the Wheel of Fortune TV show... despite just one letter being revealed.

Caitlin Burke, 26, was appearing on the popular show when she was presented with a 27-letter prize puzzle, knowing only that one letter wan an "L".

But much to the shock of the host, she said she was going to take a guess… and then he was left flabbergasted when she got it right.

Burke had said she'd got a good feeling when she made the guess "I've Got A Good Feeling About This!" and  she was right to, she won a trip to the Caribbean and $9000.

275x250.jpg This video shows is what it's like to ride Formula Rossa, the world's new fastest roller-coaster which reaches 240kmph. Guess what, it's fast, very fast.

The attraction, which will open shortly at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, was designed to replicate the sensation of driving a Formula 1 car.

Riders are forced to wear goggles to protect their eyes as they are propelled around the twists, turns, ups and downs of the track.

Thrill seekers will accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in just two seconds and experience  a force of 1.7 G's… and instantly have about as much chance of winning the F1 championship this year as Jenson Button.

TV news broadcasts are normally slick, uber-professional affairs… but not always, as this blunder-filled minute of disastrous television proves.

The clip from Channel 10 in San Diego has become an online hit for packing so many gaffes into a short space during a live broadcast.

The 11am newscast begins with a shot of a weather-girl caught unaware, before panning to hosts who promptly bungle their lines as the introduce a news item.

After cutting to the outside link, there's an uncomfortably long pause before the reporter starts talking and the cameraman seems to get distracted by a pensioner on a mobility scooter.

In fact it's all so blunderful, we can't help but question whether it's fake… though we really hope it's not, because it almost makes us look competent.
