Peshawar Student Saved by Faulty Alarm Clock

All the ninth graders were killed that fateful day on Tuesday, when the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan opened fire at the Peshawar Army Public School in Pakistan. All but one – 15 year-old Dawood Ibrahim.

The Express Tribune reported, because of a family wedding the night before and an alarm clock that remained silent, he was able to escape the tragedy.

Escaping such tragedy is one thing but dealing with it afterwards is another. Dawood lost not one, two or even three of his closest friends, but six. As a result, he is immensely traumatized and is said to be rendered speechless.

“He is in judo and is a tough child but he is showing no emotion at all right now. He just attended funerals the entire day. No one from his class survived. Every single one of them was killed,” Dawood’s elder brother Sufyan Ibrahim told The Express Tribune.

“Dawood isn’t talking to anyone; he isn’t talking at all,” his brother said.

We can’t even begin to imagine what this poor child must be going through. One minute having fun, the next, learning the fate of his closest friends. Our prayers are with him, his family, and the families related to this terrible incident.

Update: December 15, 2015

On 02 December, 2015 Pakistan hung four militants involved in the Peshawar massacre.

This was the deadliest terrorist attack ever to occur in Pakistan, surpassing the 2007 Karachi bombing.

Meet Abbas Alizada aka “Afghan Bruce Lee” (10 Photos + Video)

Wow. Bruce Lee's doppelganger for sure!

“I want to be a champion in my country and a Hollywood star,” says Abbas Alizada as he’s swirling nunchakus at Kabul’s desolate Darulaman Palace, a place where he trains twice a week. He is one of ten kids in his family and he bears an uncanny resemblance to the late martial arts legend, Bruce Lee. Thanks to the internet and TV, and his recent success at a martial arts tournament in Kabul, (all which were practically unheard of until the toppling of the Taliban after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks), Alizada is rapidly gaining fame.

“The only news that comes from Afghanistan is about war. . . . I am happy that my story is a positive one,” Alizada said.


Abbas Alizada, who calls himself the Afghan Bruce Lee, poses during a media event in Kabul December 9, 2014. From the ruins of an iconic bombed-out palace above Kabul, the young Afghan man bearing a striking resemblance to kung fu legend Bruce Lee is high-kicking his way to Internet fame, aiming to show another side to his war-weary nation.

NEPAL: The Gadhimai Festival (Warning: Graphic Images)

Warning: Graphic Images

We came upon this 'disturbing', centuries-old tradition which thankfully, only occurs every 5 years, the Gadhimai Festival - the world's biggest animal sacrifice where animals including water buffaloes, pigs, goats, chicken, pigeons and even rats, are all sacrificed as part of this Hindu festival, with the hopes that the sacrifices will lead to the fulfillment of wishes by the goddess.

Male domestic Asian water buffaloes (locally called "PaaDa") are the preferred species to offer to the goddess.

This festival occurs in, of all places, Nepal - the birth place of Buddha - known for his teaching of non-violence to the world.

The festival is a month-long and began this year on November 28, 2014 and ends November 29, 2014 (hence, how we discovered this viral story.)

The ritual began at dawn with a ceremonial "pancha bali" or the sacrifice of five animals, comprising a rat, a goat, a rooster, a pig and a pigeon. It is estimated that 300,000 - 500,000 animals were killed during the period of sacrifice in 2009 while 5 million people visited Gadhimai during the festival.

Unsurprisingly, the festival has garnered numerous protests by animal rights activists and the likes. In 2009 activists made several attempts to stop the ritual, including Brigitte Bardot and Maneka Gandhi, who wrote to the Nepalese government asking them to stop the killings. A government official commented that they would not "interfere in the centuries-old tradition of the Madheshi people."

Dogs Killed in Front of Animal Activist By Dog-meat Traders (Warning: Graphic Images)

Warning: Graphic Images

Everyone turns away or do nothing whenever stories like these are published about dog meat trading. We are guilty of it also. Maybe it’s because we can’t handle the flagrant and shocking disregard for the well being of these animals and the torture these dogs are put through everyday – all in the name of  ‘tradition’ – dog meat delicacies.

Did you know – the dogs are put through such torture because according to Soi Dog’s website, “when they are in pain, their bodies release adrenaline that softens their meat.”

People, these are not chickens, or cows. These are dogs. Man’s best friend. Dogs who wait patiently for their masters to return home after a long day at work. Dogs who will lay by your grave site in mourning. Dogs who will love you unconditionally. You hear the stories all the time:

  • There’s Ciccio, the 12-year-old German shepherd in Italy who used to attend the church of his master every day and stood at the altar in hopes of her return. “Maria of the fields” – died suddenly in November 2012, and when the church bell would toll, Ciccio would show up and wait at the altar at the same church his master attended every day for years, when she was alive. Would a cow do that?
  • Or Hawkeye the chocolate Lab. Back in 2011, Navy SEAL Jon Tumilson died in a helicopter crash that killed 38 American servicemen. At the funeral with 1,5oo in attendance, one sight caught all their eyes – Hawkeye – his dog, who refused to leave his side:  According to observers the Labrador “dropped to the ground and gave a sigh” and remained at the foot of the casket for the duration of the funeral.
The only way to capture your attention to this appalling tradition, is through graphic images and stories like the one you’re about to read. Help us to help them, the Soi Dog Foundation, and put an end to dog torture by going to their website and signing the petition and/or sharing it on social sites and more like we have done.

We’ve all seen what human babies look like in the womb, well, most of us anyways but have you ever wondered what animals looked like in the womb?

The  amazing embryonic images of unborn animals are said not to be exactly real but rather were created for a National Geographic documentary combining the use of dimensional ultrasound scans, tiny cameras and computer graphics.

1. Dolphin

Baby dolphins are born with whiskers on their upper jaw, this calf will be in its mothers womb for up to 12 months and will spend months, even years, swimming close to mum before becoming independent.

Another “Victim” of Synthol (16 Photos)



So you want bigger muscles you say? Don’t want to gain it the hard and old fashion way of prolong and dedicated workouts – with good protein shakes? Maybe you’d rather take some of that Synthol, the “site enhancement oil” which some bodybuilders use to mimic the appearance of developed muscle where it may otherwise be disproportionate or lagging, also known as “fluffing”.

Well, if you do, be prepared to look like this Iraqi body builder who is said to use both Synthol AND steroids!

25 Amazing Coloured Images of World War II

Remarkable coloured images from World War II to mark its 75th anniversary.

This day in history, September 1st, marks many events. The start of World War II was one of the most defining of the 20th century and although coloured photography was almost unheard of at the time, a small series were captured between 1939 and 1945 which offered an alternatively amazing perspective of the conflict such as the first image below of the first United States infantryment approaching Omaha Beach in France, as part of the D-Day landings.

teeth after a six-hour operation
Talk about a mouthful! This poor 17-year-old who suffered from a rare condition had to have 232 teeth extracted after complaining of severe pain.  The family initially feared he was suffering from cancer so they brought him to the JJ Hospital in Mumbai.

After more than six hours later, he is left with 28 teeth. This was such an amazing ordeal that the doctors had decided to forward the case to the Guinness World Record for the most number of teeth extracted from an individual! No kiddin’.

Ashiq Gavai, the boy with this rare condition, lives in a village in Buldhana district in Amravati region and about a year-and-a-half ago, his family noticed swelling in his lower jaw but the doctors there couldn’t identify the problem.

37 Celebrities With Their Past Doppelganger

You’ve seen our World Cup Look-Alikes, now check out these celebrities with their doppelganger from the past.




Doppelganger is always a fascinating subject. It makes you wonder if there is a parallel universe and if time travel is really real and even more scary yet intriguing – who was or is your doppelganger. Doppelganger are said to be either the spiritual doubles of a person or their downright evil twin. And they don’t have to be of the same sex either as you’ll see in a few of the photos.

The Doppelganger comes from the German word Doppel (double) and Gänger (walker) . The singular and plural forms are the same but English folks tend to add the ‘s’ on the end to show the plural form.

Some of these photos we’ve seen many times viralling around the web while others are new to us. We often wonder what these celebrities thought of their past doppelganger. Can they see what we see in their past look-alikes? Either way, check out these 37 remarkable celebrity doppelgangers.


1. Peter Dinklage… and Diego Velazquez’s “Portrait of Sebastián de Morra”




2. Jennifer Lawerence… and her Egyptian twin-actress Zubaida Tharwat

Check out these 15 World Cup doppelgangers.  The last one was our favourite!

Another Beauty of a Fan Spotted in Stands – A True Successor to Larissa Riquelme? (8 Photos)


We don’t know how they missed this one but this fan, wearing the German flag and ‘with deep cleavage’ was spotted at the Maracanã Stadium in Brazil and now photos of her are going viral.

And as for those of you who don’t know who Larissa Riquelme is:

A famous model and actress in Paraguay, Riquelme rose to international prominence during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. A supporter of both the Paraguay national football team and the club Cerro Porteño, she was first pictured in international media celebrating a goal during the game between Paraguay and Slovakia with her Nokia mobile phone between her breasts and she was wearing a t-shirt with Paraguay’s colors (as part of a promotion for a mobile phone company). Riquelme is the face of the deodorant brand Axein Paraguay and at a later Paraguay game in the World Cup she was also seen with the word “Axe” written on her chest as advertising for the deodorant brand.

Hey! We don’t get it. Dutch, German… where are all the Brazilian beauties?? Or is this one a Brazilian in disguise?

Koko Responds to a Sad Movie

A blast from the past! We love those old virals that are worthy of some re-recognition like this one involving Koko the gorilla....  

Koko watches intently a DVD movie on her TV that she has seen several times before. It is called Tea with Mussolini. When it comes to a sad part, where the boy has to say goodbye to all of his relatives and waves goodbye on the train, Koko turns away from the TV. She then proceeds to sign: "Frown, sad, cry, bad, trouble, mother and Koko-love." Her eyes also look very watery. (Gorillas cry too.)

Lesson: There is mounting scientific evidence that great apes can feel empathy for others. This example points to the possibility that gorillas, in particular, may also be able to empathize with fictional human characters portrayed by actors—or at least be moved by them
