they did what?: November 2010 Archives

A little dancer has become a big hit on the internet after a video of him strutting his stuff was uploaded to YouTube.

During the dance, Angelo Baligad - known as Lil Demon - spins on his head, somersaults and supports his body weight with a single hand.

Now seen seen by more than 450,000 people, the clip was shot during a dance off contest in Hawaii where the pint-sized kid took on someone twice his size.

His rival Joshua Lee 'Milky' Ayers had pulled out some of his best moves but was left shocked when Lil Demon began performing in front of fans.

Then Ayers had to pull out his best ever performance… making out he wasn't embarrassed by getting owned by child. 

A video of an audience member vomiting into a plastic bag during the recording of a Spanish TV show has become an online hit.

Despite being filmed over a year ago the clip, from 'Know How To Live' has recently shot to internet fame.

The 42 second video shows a presenter talking to camera about how to achieve healthy skin as the audience member vomits into a clear plastic bag.

It's only when other members of the audience start waving their arms and calling for help that the camera zooms in to a point the puking can't be seen.

We can sympathise with the vomiter… watching This Morning leave us feeling in much the same way.

Most shoplifters try to discretely slip products into their pocket or bag… but not this one she had a more blatant approach.

Police in Ohio say Nakita Norman was arrested after being caught on CCTV cameras stuffing two fur coats in her trousers.

After casually walking around the store Norman removed the security tags from two coats while another man and woman distracted staff.

Then she opened her coat, lowered her trousers and proceeded to stuff the bulky fur coats - valued at £3,200 - into the legs.

Amazingly the 44-year-old was able to leave the store unnoticed… even though she had suddenly developed a slightly funny walk.

A footballer has been dubbed the 'Cannibal of Ajax' after being caught on camera biting the neck of a rival player.

Ajax and Uruguay ace Luis Suarez was playing in the match recent against PSV Eindhoven when a confrontation happened.

But rather than being part of the usual footballer slap and exaggerated fall, the striker opted for an altogether more vampiric approach.

Unseen by the referee he leaned forward and sunk his teeth into the neck of PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal.

Suarez was not punished during the game but has since been suspended for two games… and team-mates have started hanging garlic in the dressing room.

We once threw a ball of paper into a bin from eight metres away, bouncing it off two surfaces... unfortunately there was no-one else there to see it.

Luckily for this Japanese teenager -- who was recently equally in the zone while playing a basketball arcade game -- no moment now goes unrecorded for YouTube posterity.

As such she's become an online sensation after a video of her shooting an amazing series of consecutive baskets on the game was uploaded to the internet.

In the 70 second clip, the girl can be seen stepping up to the machine, grabbing the orange balls as soon as they're released.

She then proceeds to notch up 256 points by hurling them at the basket with the sort of speed and accuracy normally reserved for NBA players… and even then only the good ones.

275x250.jpg It was one small step for spud, one giant leap for spudkind. A potato has been dressed as Santa and launched to the edge of space. As you do.

The bizarre space mission was organised by a primary school in Devon with kids dressing the spud with a white beard and red hat.

It was then placed in a pop bottle 'rocket' christened Spudnik2 and attached to an extra large helium balloon and launched from a local car-park.

Also fitted with camera and a GPS system Spudnik then rose 17 miles up before the balloon burst and everything fell back to earth. Luckily no-one was injured the space potato -- that would be embarrassing.

It's good to keep an eye on world politics… if only so you can have a laugh when otherwise calm politicians resort to fisticuffs, just like this MP in Argentina.

During a recent budget debate in Argentina’s parliament MP Graciela Camano flipped out at a rival MP, Carlos Kunkel.

But she didn't limit her attack to a verbal assault, after standing beside him and shouting for several seconds, she then slapped him around the face.

It's said Camano had lost her rag after Kunkel made aspersions about her private life, rather than it being a policy-based disagreement.

Whatever happened, all we know is that Kunkel didn't retaliate… and this sort of thing could certainly liven up Westminster. 

275x250.jpgA brave/stupid kite surfer has used the recent high winds to perform a series of dangerous tricks -- including jumping over Brighton pier.

Lewis Crathern, the former British kitesurfing champion, made the death-defying leap by using the gales and choppy waves to launch himself into the air.

He then manipulated his kite to carry him over the iconic landmark, before landing safely on the other side.

Speaking of the stunt the 26-year-old said: "You only get one try. If you don't get it right you could die."

Which just goes to show he must have balls of steel -- in fact we're surprised he didn't catch them on the top of the pier.


275x250.jpg A group of British space fans have successfully launched a paper plane into space and captured some amazing images in the process.

The trio of amateur space enthusiasts created an impressive paper aircraft with a 3ft wingspan and launched it using a helium balloon.

A small onboard camera then took a series of photos as it soared to 23 miles (90,000ft) above the earth and the balloon burst due to air pressure.

The plane then glided back down from the edge of sapce landing 100 miles from where it had been launched… and to think the best I've ever made have only gone eight metres.

275x250.jpg A 69-year-old granny who became a hit in European nightclubs thanks to her DJing skills has now performed her first gig in the US.

Ruth Flowers, also known as 'Mamy Rock', now looks set to become a star in the US after playing to a crowd of over 3,000 adoring fans.

The OAP DJ says she first caught the DJ bug at a birthday disco for her grandson five years ago, and has been playing gigs across Europe ever since.

Flowers enjoys mixing techno with the likes of the Rolling Stones… and she must be the only DJ who can call them a nice bunch of young lads.

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.

A pillow fight recently broke out on US flight with dozens of passengers hurling their complimentary pillows at each other.

Luckily this video doesn't end with an armed air marshal standing up, but rather a bunch of frequent fliers having fun at 36,000ft.

The impromptu pillow throwing took place on Continental Flight CO1905 from Phoenix Airport to Washington State as an air stewardess handed them out.

Members of the influential FlyerTalkers frequent fliers forum started throwing the soft missiles up and down the aisle at each other and the stewardess.

One commenter said after the incident: "Pillow fights are more fun at 36,000 feet!" -- they made no comment about anything else.

275x250.jpgSure you can get bored on the drive to work, but it's dangerous to use your mobile at the same time… let alone also reading a book and Kindle.

A motorist in the US had been filmed driving at 60mph while reading a book, answering his mobile phone and fiddling with a Kindle.

In the video the cameraman can be heard commenting that the man is reading a book -- which he has lodged between the steering wheel and dash -- while driving.

Then, as they film him, he pulls out a Kindle eBook reader… quickly followed by a mobile phone. Causing them to burst out with laughter.

All of this means the driver must be the world's best multitasker or very stupid. Or quite possibly both.

275x250.jpg A German artist yesterday set sail on the Thames, in an origami paper boat which he'd folded on the river bank.

Frank Bölter had created the boat -- named To The World's End -- with the help of members of the public as part of the Drift10 art exhibition.

After carefully folding the giant sheets of paper, which were reinforced with lightweight metal poles he jumped in and sailed in the Canary Wharf docks.

It's not known exactly how long he lasted, but he expected to sail for long enough to warrant taking a newspaper… unless he planned to use that as an emergency escape vessel.

A footballer was booed by fans after picked up a pitch-invading duck and callously hurling it over the advertising boards.

The bizarre incident happened during a Belgian First Division match when Zulte-Waregem's Mahamadou Habib Habibou spotted the stray bird.

After a goal-keeper tried and failed to contain the duck, Habibou ran into action chasing the bird briefly, before grabbing it by the neck.

But while fans had cheered the chase, they soon turned on Habibou -- when the player hurled the duck over advertising hoarding and into the ground.

While the duck appeared to waddle off uninjured the footballer has been dubbed the "Cat bin lady" of Belgian football. 

275x250.jpgA police marksman is being investigated after allegedly inserting song lyrics into evidence at the inquest of a lawyer who was shot dead.

The officer, known only as AZ8, had given evidence into the death of Mark Saunders, who was shot by police marksmen following an armed stand-off in London.

But while a jury recently ruled Saunders had been killed lawfully, the Metropolitan police firearms officer is now at the centre of a investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

It is alleged that, while giving evidence under oath, he deliberately inserted song titles into his verbal testimony.

He has currently been removed from operational firearms duty… at which point he probably started humming Put Your Gun Away by Ms. Dynamite.
