After Happily Ever After

You know how it goes with a Disney movie, the damsel in distress needs a proverbial(and sometimes literal) knight in shining armour to save her. The two fall in love and they live happily ever after, right? Have you ever wondered what happens after happily ever after?

I happened to stumble onto this YouTube video, by a user who goes by the name of “Paint” . In his video he focuses on the story after the happily ever after for Pocahontas, Ariel, Belle and Jasmine.

This video thoroughly made my morning, check it out here:

NASCAR Driver Jeff Gordon Pranks Car Salesman

If you’re a car salesman and you have someone showing interest in a car you know they will love and you can make some great cash on the deal, you’re obviously going to be willing to take the car out for a test drive with the prospective client. If  you are such a car salesman, remember to buckle up whenever going out for a test drive, because you never know when you might be caught out like this guy, when NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon pranks a car salesman.

When Jeff, disguised with some nerd looking glasses, a Pepsi-can mounted hidden camera, makeup and a fake beard suggested to “Buckle up”, he clearly meant it! The unsuspecting salesman, eager to make a deal on the Camaro to a gent who currently drives a ‘minivan’, casually started with his sales pitch as “Mike” pulled out of the parking lo...

Friday Stress Test

Want a quick Friday stress test? I am not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate. You have to read the rest of the article first, before looking at the picture.

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. Don’t look yet! You need to know the background first.  This picture of the 2 identical dolphins was used in at St. Mary’s Hospital, in London, in case study on stress levels.

Now you can look…

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water.

These dolphins are identical.

In the case study done at the St. Mary’s hospital, the closely monitored scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins.

This research has shown that the more differences a person finds between...

As you may or may not know, 5Gum delivers the longest lasting flavour and a unique taste experience with their gum with flavours like Turbulence’s mouthwatering watermelon, Electro’s tingling spearmint and Cobalt’s cooling peppermint… But that’s not what I wanted to tell you. I have something a bit better…

Let’s make Local Lekker Again this week on #AfricaBBC

With all the negativity surrounding our incredible country, I think it’s time to start turning around this negativity and start focusing on the good. I dare not even mention “O” word whose surname rhymes with Pretorius… And don’t even get me started on those police officers who dragged the Mozambican taxi driver behind their car.

Rather, I think it’s time we start looking at the good we can find in, not just South Africa, but on the African continent… The vast variety of landscapes and cultures, food and all that other good stuff we can find. On that note, I think you might dig this video… But before the video, here’s a little background info:

The #AfricaBBC series is drawing near to its conclusion, with only two regions remaining to be showcased on BBC Knowledge, DStv Channel 184...
