Panamera from hell

As you all know Edo Competition is a marketing company, witch projected this tuned Panamera .
They claimed that the motive for this car was the HELL so they naime'd it Panamera from hell.
This is a Porsche Panamera S called Hellboy.the modification is made from the outside as you see the agressive  green line, bumpers and rest of the body work...but the real modification is "under the hood"

Maybe the green line on the brakes and bumpers isn't the best Representative of HELL, but the rest of the elements definitely are aggressive .The bodykit is made from Carbonfiber,including the  front and back bumper, door's spoiler and side thresholds.

The low profile  chrome rims are done with 5 spoke and 21 inch wide. The suspension is fully hydraulic, so you can change the height of the vehicle for 40 mm.

Finally the characteristics:
the Edo altered the exhaust system and reprogrammed the central electronic unit (ECU).
The result is increased power from 400 hp to 465 hp and torque increase from 500 to 550 Nm
From place to hundred Edo Competition Hellboy arrives in just 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 305 km / h .What is there else to say...just look at the photos and enjoy..

Where would you go?

This post will be about your dream home....my family is preparing a big move from the apartment where I am living now.. And we are considering about buying our own house.. All of this reminded me of the time when I was 8 years old, it was a similar situation, I was very devastated about moving out...
I had a strong connection with my old place... But my father kept on telling me that we are going to have the best house in the world with pool's and playgrounds and all of that stuff... Well now 12 years later It's not quite pools and playgrounds :) but it's ok...And as I was saying this all situation made me think, that everyone should have their DREAM HOUSE.... 
Here are some nice choices so you decide...

1.Manhattan apartment
All of us watched popular 90' shows as "Seinfield" and "Friends" and the newer ones as "How i met your mother".....They all have one thing in common "Manhattan suite". So my first choice for those who love all the daily action and all the tension, this is the perfect choice! 

2.Jersey apartment 
The quite opposite from Manhattan,and more of my kind of choice, is a Jersey apartment...
It's a more calm place with friendly people and not that much of tense as the Man. 
As the matter of fact Jersey would be my first choice If I could choose.....I would love to have an apartment in the Jersey downtown ..

3.Maldives Beach house
The Maldives is one of the most exotic and unique holiday destinations in the world, with stunning coral islands, endless turquoise waters and white powdery beaches. A house In this paradise would make your live spin around... 

4.Colorado mountain house
What is the place if you just want to run away from all of  the city tension and loudness...The mountain of course.Colorado has a great selection of beautiful apartments and houses.. Maybe this is more like a grandparents choice but still It would be great to try something different at least for a while.

top tv shows in hollywood

Today my review is going to be about the biggest tv shows in Hollywood
I must say that my favorite movie genre is Comedy...but today I am doing some else genres review also...
So lets beggin ...

1. Entourage

On the first place of my Tv Show  list is surely Entourage...
short storyline (I recommend this show to everyone)

 In this sitcom, the suddenly risen film star Vince Chase, a 'jeune premier' of humble origins, learns the ropes of the business and the the high-profile world of the wealthy happy few in and around Hollywood. but not alone: he brings from his native New York his best friends and brother...so the story goes on, you can see and laugh to the Queens boys as they try to fit in the Hollywood fame and glory.

2.How I met your mother

 Everybody already heard for Barney Stinson and his famous quotes...The story starts in the year 2005, when then twenty-seven year old architect Ted was spurred on to want to get married after lawyer Marshall Eriksen and kindergarten teacher Lily Aldrin, his best friends from their college days at Wesleyan and Marshall who was his roommate at the time, got engaged after nine years of dating each other. Ted believed that his life mate was going to be news reporter and aspiring news anchor Robin Scherbatsky, who, despite having had a romantic relationship with her after this time, ended up being who the kids know as their "Aunt" Robin.

3.The Sopranos

And for the end one show that literally everyone seen and loved "The Sopranos"...An innovative look at the life of fictional Mafia Capo Tony Soprano, this serial is presented largely first person, but additional perspective is conveyed by the intimate conversations Tony has with his psychotherapist. We see Tony at work, at home, and in therapy. Moments of black comedy intersperse this aggressive, adult drama, with adult language, and extreme violence

much more than a car ride...

Some people use there cars just to fill there basic need's..driving to the market, driving to the mall, driving your kids to guitar lessons, or basketball trainings...
this post isn't going to be anything similar to this... as the matter of fact this review is going to bee the total opposite from usual  car purpose...
The fact is that your car can be so much more than a daily transport vehicle... 
Few days ago (for the first time in my life) I experienced CAR DRIFTING ..and man It felt great!!!
I never had such a adrenaline shock in my life... My friend that work's on a racing track hooked me up with a term and a sweet ride (he gave me his BMW)...I can surely say that that was the highlight in my driving career ...
My suggestion to you all that never tried this...is GET IN YOUR RIDE AND GO FOR IT...you wont regret it for sure!!!

the most EXPENSIVE cars in the world!!!

Here are the 10 most expensive production cars on the market; I will not include concept cars.
So enjoy :)

1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports $2,400,000. This is by far the most expensive street legal car available on the market today (the base Veyron costs $1,700,000). It is the fastest accelerating car reaching 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. It is also the fastest street legal car when tested again on July 10, 2010 with the 2010 Super Sport Version reaching a top speed of 267 mph. When competing against the Bugatti Veyron, you better be prepared!

Bugatti Veyron: Most Expensive Car in The World

2. Pagani Zonda Clinque Roadster $1,850,000. One of the most exotic cars out there is one of the most expensive. It can go from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph
 the third place is a tie!!
3. Lamborghini Reventon $1,600,000. The most powerful and the most expensive Lamborghini ever built is the third on the list. It takes 3.3 seconds to reach 60 mph and it has a top speed of 211 mph. Its rarity (limited to 20) and slick design are the reasons why it is so expensive and costly to own.

Lamborghini Reventon side view

3. Koenigsegg Agera R $1,600,000. The Agera R can burn 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 260 mph. It has the parts to reach 270 mph, but the supercar is electronically capped at 235 mph. With the completion of certain paperwork, the company will unlock the speed limit for one occasion. 

4. McLaren F1 $970,000. In 1994, the McLaren F1 was the fastest and most expensive car. Even though it was built 15 years ago, it has an unbelievable  top speed of 240 mph and reaching 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Even today, the McLaren F1 is still top on the list and outperforms many other supercars.

McLaren F1 Orange with doors open

5. Ferrari Enzo $670,000. The most popular supercar ever built. The Enzo has a top speed of 217 mph and reaching 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. Only 400 units were produced and it is currently being sold for over 
$1,000,000 at auctions.

What is it with woman and DIET !?

Seriously! What is the thing with women and diet's...
I have a girlfriend for a few years now...and from the day I met her she is always doing these stupid diet's and it's really starting to pis me off! I wouldnt say one word to her if she was some chubby pig, But she really isn't!!! I think that this is slowly becoming a bad habit...now I will try to present to you how is it to live with a "Diet maniac" I'll describe some of her diets!!!
She's been on a diet for like years as I said. 
She progresses from one diet to another.
Working a diet for a while, Then she announces the discovery of the next 'better diet' (lol there are all the same)
Like there's the Weigh Down diet
This is a diet where you can eat what you want, but only when your hungry.
Sounds good doesn't it?
The catch is 'Weigh Down' has redefine what hungry is. 
And it's not the 'I feel hungry' you and I know.
Weigh Down's hungry happens hours later. 
Your not allowed to eat until your stomach is growling. 
And that happens like once in a day....ONCE A DAY! 
But that's not where the fun ends on 'Weigh Down'  
I've been starving myself for like 36 hrs. waiting for my stomach to growl.
And I'm thinking, when I do get to eat I'm gonna make it count.
But just as I'm gonna dig in my girlfriend says 
"Honey, you know your only supposed to eat until your satisfied right?" 
I say with a huge hungry smile on.. "YEAHHHH".
My smile goes south as I find out those Weigh Down nazis have redefined what full is too.
Weigh Down's full is called 'Satisfied' 
And Satisfied isn't the full you and I know. 
It's just after your tummy stops feeling "Weigh Down" hungry. 
And that was halfway through what I intended to eat.
"That's it?!" I say. "Yes dear now your Satisfied" (look of dismay)
You notice by now that I'm on this diet, right? 
That's because I inevitably find myself on some of these diets with her. 
I don't want to be on a diet but she wants me to join her in it. 
I think she wants company or something. 
Someone to mown with when the going gets tuff. 
"Dear! Is there any chocolate hidden somewhere?" 
(she'll call out to me in one of her weak moments) 
You see she's thinking if I were on the program with her, 
I'd have her back in this battle and together we would defeat the enemy. 
Yes, the dreaded three headed Fat Demon. 
He's the one responsible for planting evil yummy thoughts in her mind. 
Yummy suggestions that lead to reminiscent rememberings of palate pleasing orgies. 
Like the Chocolate fudge binge last Tuesday evening that left her shaking on the floor with a guilty Monalisa smile on her face. 
If I were dieting with her this might not have happened. 
I would have jumped to her side when Fat Demon showed up and together, 
Like Skinny Samurais, we would have protected each other. 
Back to back with swords drawn we would've slain Fat Demon and cut off his three heads. Sending fatty goo spewing all over us and the room. 
Then we'd do our victory dance like two mud wrestling hotties covered with......
.......................... KhmMM :)
Sorry.... what was I talking about again? OH yeah diets...
My point is if you really need to go on a diet...don't do it on your hand.
First thing you got to do is consult some doctor or nutritionist and than decide...
Cheeeeers ...

Unlucky Millionares (the biggest lottery bankrupt's ever)

How many of you ever had a dream about winning on a lottery!? You probably think that those few millions would solve all of your problems.... here are few interesting cases that could change your mind about that.
Here are some confession from those that Had It All and managed to touch the bottom.
If you win the lottery, make sure to get a financial advisor and be smart about your winnings. Winning the lottery can be exciting and fun and can change your life for the better, as long as you handle it well!

1. Evelyn  Marie Adams
Evelyn Marie Adams hit the jackpot not once, but twice, buying both winning tickets at the 7-11 store her husband owned in New Jersey, a total winning of $5.4 million in 1985 and 1986. At the time Adams won, she was required to take winnings as an annuity paid out over 20 years. While the winnings were taxed at 50 percent, the government initially took only 20 percent, surprising her later with a tax bill for the remaining 30%. Like many lottery winners, Adams had to sell off her annuity to pay her taxes and her debts. She spent some money on travel, visiting South America, Hawaii and Disney World, and ignored the seven marriage proposals she got. But she did follow some bad advice; she was told to become a professional gambler so she could use her gambling losses to offset her winnings at tax time. Adams says she spent so much money gambling that she actually lost more than she won. Today, Adams lives in a trailer park and works in an upscale food services company. She does still play the lottery, but only in affordable amounts now and then.

2. William “Bud” Post III
In 1988, William “Bud” Post III,  won $16.2 million in lottery winnings but it only brought him debt, despair and heartache, causing his death of respiratory failure Jan. 15 at a Pittsburgh area hospital. His problems included a brother who tried to hire a contract murderer to kill him and his sixth wife; a landlady who forced him to give her one-third of the jackpot; and a conviction on an assault charge, after Mr. Post fired a shotgun at a man trying to collect a debt at his deteriorating dream house in northwestern Pennsylvania. He went bankrupt, came out of it with $1 million free and clear and spent most of that windfall, too.

3. Suzanne Mullins
In 1993, Suzanne Mullins won $4.2 million in the Virginia lottery. Now she’s deeply in debt to a company that lent her money using the winnings as collateral. She borrowed $197,746.15 from this company, but eventually stopped making payments on the loan. She blamed the debt on the lengthy illness of her uninsured son-in-law, who needed $1 million for medical bills. Needless to say, her lottery win did not end in happiness.

4. Ken Proxmire
Ken Proxmire was a machinist when he won $1 million in the Michigan lottery. He moved to California and went into the car business with his brothers. Within five years, he had filed for bankruptcy.  “He was just a poor boy who got lucky and wanted to take care of everybody,” explains Ken’s son Rick. “It was a hell of a good ride for three or four years, but now he lives more simply. There’s no more talk of owning a helicopter or riding in limos. We’re just everyday folk. Dad’s now back to work as a machinist,” says his son.

5. Willie Hurt
In 1989, Willie Hurt of Lansing, Mich., won $3.1 million. Only two years later he was broke and charged with murder after spending his fortune on a divorce and crack cocaine.

6. Janite Lee
In 1993, Janite lee of Missouri won $18 million. Lee was generous to a variety of causes, including various political organizations, education programs and the community services. According to published reports, eight years after winning, Lee had filed for bankruptcy with only $700 left.

7. Southeastern Family
In the early 1990s, a Southeastern family won $4.2 million. In almost no time at almost all of their winnings were spent on a huge house, cars, and various requests from family members. They bought a huge house and succumbed to repeated family requests for help in paying off debts. Eleven years after winning, the couple got divorced, the house was sold and what was left of their lottery winnings had to be split.

8. Kenneth and Connie Parker
When Kenneth Parker’s wife cashed a $25 million lottery ticket in winter of 2002, he thought they would have a new life. Now it seems they will — but not together. A few months later, he said his wife turned cold, kicked him out of the condo they had bought, and told him she was keeping all the money. Kenneth, however, took his anger and filed—in court, seeking both a divorce and what he feels is his share of the cash.

9. Jeffrey Dampier
Jeffrey Dampier won a $20 million jackpot and was then kidnapped and murdered by his own sister-in-law who hoped to inherit the winnings. Victoria Jackson and Nathaniel Jackson faced charges of first-degree murder, armed kidnapping and armed carjacking. Authorities say they invited Dampier to their apartment July 25, 2005, then tied his wrists together and ordered him into his van at gunpoint. Victoria Jackson killed Dampier with a shot to the head, according to records.

10. Jack Whittaker
Jack Whittaker is a businessman who became famous when he won US$315 million in the Powerball multi state lottery. At the time it was the largest jackpot ever won by a single winning ticket in the history of American lottery. He has garnered even more publicity since his win due to several well-publicized brushes with the law as well as personal tragedies.  Though he began with intentions to do good with his winnings, his world quickly fell apart with the death of his granddaughter Brandi from a drug overdose which was funded by her allowance from Whittaker and the breakup of his marriage. Whittaker did give money to churches and to people who were in need but was soon bombarded with lawsuits, thievery and greed. He turned to drinking as he watched what he called the “powerball curse” destroy his life.

CRAZY WORLD did you know!?

Hello my readers...in the last few days I had all kind of interesting articles....thank you all for participating... and commenting my posts.
Today I'm going with a bit different topic... I will write about fascinating fact's all over the world..
I'm sure that you'll find something interesting in these articles so enjoy!!!


Bird that barks instead of sings

The Antpitta avis canis Ridgley is a bird that looks like a stuffed duck on stilts and barks like a dog. The bird was discovered by ornithologist Robert S. Ridgley in the Andes in Ecuador in June 1998. Thirty of these long-legged, black-and-white barking birds were found. It apparently had gone undetected because it lives in remote parts and, of course, doesn’t sing. The size of a duck, it is one of the largest birds discovered in the 20th Century.
Antpitta photo: (c) Academy of Natural Sciences

There also are dogs that do not bark! The basenji, smallish dog with a silky copper coat, does not bark. Instead, it yodels when it get excited. Wild dogs like the African Wild Dog also do not bark


Cow burps and global warming

Cows and global warming
With all its grazing and many stomachs, it is no wonder that cows are one of the main contributors to the hole in the ozone layer. Apart from CFC, the biggest culprit is hydrocarbon emissions from cars and cows. Yes, cows! Cows release some 100 million tons of hydrocarbon annually – by releasing gas. To give you an idea of how much gas a cow emits: if the gas of 10 cows could be captured, it would provide heating for a small house for a year.
But unlike what you think, cows release hydrocarbon mostly by burping.


 Cow cartoon 

If blood is red, why are veins blue?
Blood is bright red in its oxygenated form and a dark red in deoxygenated form. In simpler terms, it is bright red when it leaves the lungs full of oxygen and dark red when it returns to the lungs for a refill. Veins appear blue because light penetrating the skin is absorbed and reflected in high energy wavelengths back to the eye. Higher energy wavelengths are blue.

Why is blue for boys and pink for girls?
In ancient times, it was believed that certain colors could combat the evil spirits that lingered over nurseries. Because blue was associated with the heavenly spirits, boys were clothed in that color, boys then being considered the most valuable resource to parents. Although baby girls did not have a color associated with them, they were mostly clothed in black. It was only in the Middle Ages when pink became associated with baby girls.

Why do onions make you cry?
Onions, like other plants, are made of cells. The cells are divided into two sections separated by a membrane. One side of the membrane contains an enzyme which helps chemical processes occur in your body. The other side of the membrane contains molecules that contain sulfur. When you cut an onion, the contents on each side of the membrane mix and cause a chemical reaction. This reaction produces molecules such as ethylsufine which make your eyes water.
To prevent crying when you cut an onion, cut it under a running tap of cold water. The sulfur compounds dissolve in water and are rinsed down the sink before they reach your eyes. You can also put the onion in the freezer for ten minutes before you cut it. Cold temperatures slow down the reaction between the enzyme and the sulfur compounds so fewer of the burning molecules will reach your eyes.

hope you enjoy :)
