Iron Men on Iron mountain

This is the most meglicous dirtbike event on earth!
The toughest motorcycle Offroad race winner crowned:

The perfect sensation - privateer rider Teddy Blazusiak (POL) wins the Red Bull Hare Scramble 2007 for KTM!10.06.2007. What made it amazing was that he won a wild card place in the start and decided to ride using a borrowed bike!
This was the line up for the start after 2 days of eliminating events! That must have been Megalicious Mayhem when they pulled away! I would really like to attend one day. Not as competitor mind you, my old bones would never make it! but I see the beer tent was a popular place as well.

Radical Mobility...

These guys are doing outstanding work and making the life of the spinally disabled so much richer, I can think of no greater job satisfaction than seeing the smile on the faces of their customers. Go Martin Brown of Radical Mobility!
By the way he designed the company website using his mouth! That shows Megalicous determination.

Buffalo 5 Lions 1 Crocs 0, WWE Smackdown Kruger style.

This is Megalicious Buffalo Mayhem... they are not called one of the Big Five for nothing...
I scored the Lions one point for a good chase and splash... after that it goes south for them. The Crocs came in for a nip but got nothing out of the fray although one of the lions almost ended up in the drink and may well have become dinner. The Buffalo should also get more points for style, especially the throws, but that would hurt the pride's feelings too much...

Honda powered barstool...

to go with your Jet powered beer cooler!

Another Megalicously crafted peice of engineering fun!
It was up for sale on EBay and seems like it was actually bought... maybe Jay Leno added it to his collection of Wicked Wheels! I bet it would look grand beside the Y2K!

Death by Cricket! Eish!

I was looking at Cricket injuries and the last one stuck me as being rather relevant what with the Bob Woolmer murder investigation. Cricket can get downright megalicously deadly!

"In extremely rare cases death can result from being struck by a cricketball on the chest. The phenomenon, called commotion cordis, causes the heart to stop beating."
Condolences to his family and the cricketing fraternity for the loss of a great coach and cricketer.
By the way, don't try using this title for a book, it has already been used albeit unpublished. The astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle(1915-2001) wrote a book with the title "Death by Cricket", it is in the St John's College Library, Cambridge University.

Knutt a good idea

you Goretard idiots!
"Frank Albrecht, an animal rights campaigner, had started the debate in the mass-circulation Bild newspaper by declaring the zoo was violating animal protection legislation by keeping him alive."
What an asshatt! Clearly he has no idea that polar bears are pretty solitary critters in the wild. What I would like is to but a grown up Knut and Mr Albrecht in a cage for a day... maybe the esteemed Mr Albrecht will be willing to sacrifice himself to help the bear survive and teach him the finer points of hunting in the process.

Did these tech guys never watch Terminator?

"The British military is set to take one of its most significant steps into the digital age with the launch of the first Skynet 5 satellite."

This is serious folks! The end is nigh! What with Korea debating robot rights and now this! Thank goodness Arnie is Governor of California... now if only he could become president then he can fight this evil danger posed by Skynet.
"Every piece of satellite bandwidth is valuable and the military is always hungry for more
Bill Sweetman, Jane's Information Group"
Note the word "hungry"! or am I just paranoid here?

Croc's and now sharks! Phillip Kerkhof from Louth Bay on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula is the talk of the town, after wrestling the bronze whaler shark up onto a jetty but he had better beware... in Afrikaans and Dutch his surname means Cemetary!

I have fun living like a bird...

but almost freezing to death was not part of the plan! Champion German paraglider Ewa Wisnierska said Friday she did not believe she would survive when she was lifted higher than Mount Everest by a thunderstorm in eastern Australia. Glad you made it Ewa! That must have been the most Megalicious paraglide ever!

Looking at her photo one would not think she was a paraglider pilot, let alone a World Champion!

Notice to future Hijackers...

you will get kicked in the nuts and get boiling water thrown in your face if you mess with the passengers, after 911 no passenger is going to meekly do as you wish retard!

"When the pilot landed he deliberately braked very hard. The man fell to the ground and was jumped on by passengers. He fired two bullets but there are no serious injuries," the Mauritanian source told Reuters.

Way to go crew and passengers!

They wanted to cook him as wel! Hell! I would have boiled his head in oil!

The Jet powered Beer Cooler

"And here is the final result after running the engine for about 5 minutes. The engine itself will run at up to 100000 rpm with exhaust temperatures of around 500 C and noise levels in excess of 125 dBA. The beer is successfully chilled to a nice cool 2 C."
Neat solution to a pressing problem...

"A man and woman are in a critical condition after crashing a prototype Honda motorbike due to be launched in South Africa.
The 29-year-old man and his 34-year-old girlfriend crashed the brand-new Honda CBR 600 2007 model along the Ben Schoeman Highway on Friday night, said ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak on Saturday."

The bane of wolves...

Shamelessly stolen from Attilathehun...

Once there were three little pigs who lived together in mutual respect and in harmony with their environment. Using materials that were indigenous to the area, they each built a beautiful house. One pig built a house of straw, one a house of sticks, and one a house of dung, clay, and creeper vines shaped into bricks and baked in a small kiln.
When they were finished, the pigs were satisfied with their work and settled back to live in peace and self-determination.
But their idyll was soon shattered. One day, along came a big bad wolf with expansionist ideas. He saw the pigs and grew very hungry, in both a physical and an ideological sense.
When the pigs saw the wolf, they ran into the house of straw. The wolf ran up to the house and banged on the door, shouting, “Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!” The pigs shouted back, “Your gunboat tactics hold no fear for pigs defending their homes and culture.”
But the wolf was not to be denied what he thought was his manifest destiny. So he huffed and puffed and blew down the house of straw. The frightened pigs ran to the house of sticks, with the wolf in hot pursuit. Where the house of straw had stood, other wolves bought up the land and started a banana plantation.
At the house of sticks, the wolf again banged on the door and shouted, “Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!” The pigs shouted back, “Go to hell, you carnivorous, imperialistic oppressor!”
At this, the wolf chuckled condescendingly. He thought to himself : “They are so childlike in their ways. It will be a shame to see them go, but progress cannot be stopped.”
So the wolf huffed and puffed and blew down the house of sticks. The pigs ran to the house of bricks, with the wolf close at their heels. Where the house of sticks had stood, other wolves built a time-share condo resort complex for vacationing wolves, with each unit a fibreglass reconstruction of the house of sticks, as well as native curio shops, snorkeling, and dolphin shows.
At the house of bricks, the wolf again banged on the door and shouted , “Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!”
This time in response, the pigs sang songs of solidarity and wrote letters of protest to the United Nations.
By now the wolf was getting angry at the pigs’ refusal to see the situation from the carnivore’s point of view. So he huffed and puffed, and huffed and puffed, he grabbed his chest and fell over dead from a massive heart attack brought on from eating too many fatty foods.
The three little pigs rejoiced that justice had triumphed and did a little dance around the corpse of the wolf. Their next step was to liberate their homeland. They gathered together a band of other pigs who had been forced off their lands. This new brigade of porcinistas attacked the resort complex with machine guns and rocket launchers and slaughtered the cruel wolf oppressors, sending a clear signal to the rest of the hemisphere not to meddle in their internal affairs. Then the pigs set up a model socialist democracy with free education, universal health care, and affordable housing for everyone.

A Force to be reckoned with

I have yet to come across a lady competitor in motorsport that is not a stunner... adrenaline must be good for the complexion. Ashley is a top contender in her class "Currently the standout driver of the 275 mile per hour Castrol dragster, a purpose-built hybrid in which she is contesting the 2006 NHRA Top Alcohol championship, she is poised to move up in classification at the wheel of a 7,000 horsepower drag racing Funny Car in which she already has tested at 315 mph."
Now that is Megalicious Mayhem!
By the way... there are two more mesdames Force who don a helmet and put the Pedal to the Metal!

Brittney and

Courtney... the younger sisters.

Let the Force be with you. There is another older sister named Adria who is the CFO of John Force Racing, Inc. Another remarkable racing family.

Remove Child Before Folding

Some stuff just makes itself up with no aid from any scriptwriter or other sources, this just proves the point that as more humans are added to the earth the less intelligent we become.Duh? Self evident I would say?
I think this book could keep any sane semi sentient being in stitches for at least a week;
“The personal injury lawyers who file the frivolous lawsuits that make outrageously obvious warning labels necessary may not be pleased that we reveal some of their secrets, but America deserves to know how the ‘sue first, ask questions later’ mentality is changing our culture and piling costs on consumers. The book will leave readers wondering whether to laugh or cry.”
I think we need one that says:
"Warning, the use of the legal system may lead to extreme irrationality or other mental aberration as well as severe apoplexy"
