!! OMG, More fun than the bus: Children attend school via zipline !!

In rural Colombia, a bunch of small children fly to school by ziplines 1,300 feet off the ground. Little Daisy Mora– 9 years old and pictured above– carries her little brother in a cloth sack as she zooms across a giant ravine on her way to class.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, you can get arrested for letting your children go to the mall by themselves.)

!! OMG, How Realistic: Paris !!

This weekend was the first day of spring, and the weather in New York was great. Things I did included a stroll across the Williamsburg and a trip to the Met. Things I did not do included a trip to Paris! If you’re like me and you didn’t go to Paris this weekend but would like to see it, I highly recommend the very elaborate interactive tour at Paris 26 Gigapixels. It even includes slightly annoying (but very authentic, I guess!) Frenchy music!

France’s Association De DĂ©fence Contre Le Tabac and Les Droits des Non-Fumeurs collaborated with ad agency BDDP & Fils on this striking campaign. The ads suggest that smoking is being a slave to tobacco by showing young guys and girls kneeling down in a simulated forced oral sex scenario with the cigarette assuming the role of the penis.

Is it just me, or might this make a small portion of the population take up smoking? (via Homotography via Sticky, link NSFW)

!! OMG, Karaoke Can Be Deadly !!

The New York Times brings us a very important report today about the scourge of Karaoke-related murders that are sweeping the Phillipines. Whatever you do, don’t sing Frank Sinatra!

GENERAL SANTOS, the Philippines — After a day of barbering, Rodolfo Gregorio went to his neighborhood karaoke bar still smelling of talcum powder. Putting aside his glass of Red Horse Extra Strong beer, he grasped a microphone with a habituĂ©’s self-assuredness and briefly stilled the room with the Platters’ “My Prayer.”

…But Mr. Gregorio, 63, a witness to countless fistfights and occasional stabbings erupting from disputes over karaoke singing, did not dare choose one beloved classic: Frank Sinatra’s version of “My Way.”

“I used to like ‘My Way,’ but after all the trouble, I stopped singing it,” he said. “You can get killed.”

The authorities do not know exactly how many people have been killed warbling “My Way” in karaoke bars over the years in the Philippines, or how many fatal fights it has fueled. But the news media have recorded at least half a dozen victims in the past decade and includes them in a subcategory of crime dubbed the “My Way Killings.”

While this problem may be currently restricted to the Phillipines, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the world quickly followed. I don’t know about My Way in particular, but I’ve definitely been moved nearly to murder watching a bunch piss drunk frat idiots singing Don’t Stop Believin’. And do not get me started on Sister Christian!
