Woman uploads pic to Facebook, doesn’t realise her huge sex toy is in the background

| blog, L&B World, World | August 31, 2015

(The Imgur picture has since been removed)

Well these two women look like they are having a lovely time together…

… however their smiles will probably be turned upside-down after they realise this photo (which was uploaded to Facebook) features a massive sex toy in the background.

Obviously some heartless (or hilarious) person grabbed the picture and uploaded it to Imgur, where it has been viewed more than a million times.

Perhaps hoping to save the women’s dignities, some people online have theorised that the implement is in fact a ‘handshake practitioner’.

We’re not convinced though.

The original posted uploaded the image with the caption: ‘I wonder what her family members are thinking right now?’

Watch this heart beating OUTSIDE of a body thanks to new transplant method

| blog, L&B World, Weird | August 31, 2015

Warning: This might put you off your dinner

This incredible video shows a fully functional heart beating outside of a human body.

The new ‘heart in a box’ keeps donor hearts alive after being taken from a body, meaning they can remain usable for much longer before being placed in a patient’s body.

The method is expected to save thousands of lives, and has already helped bring a young father back from the brink of death.

Lee Hall, 26, was diagnosed with heart failure aged 14 and had a medical pump fitted to keep him alive.

However recently the pump cables became infected, and Lee was told he needed to find a… Read the full story

Hackers have used a hi-tech computer virus to steal Apple account details from 225,000 iPhones in what is thought to be the biggest theft of its kind.

The hack has hit 225,000 users from 18 countries including China, France, Russia, Japan, United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, Israel, Italy, Spain, Singapore, and South Korea.

The attack used malicious software (malware) called KeyRaider, which steals account details from infected iPhones, according to researchers Palo Alto Networks.

Some victims have already seen fraudulent charges on their accounts – where the criminals use account details to download premium apps for other devices.

At least one user has seen their device locked and been presented with a ransom demand.

Palo Alto networks says that the malware only affects jailbroken… Read the full story

Cars being crashed at 125mph is just as terrifying as you would think

| blog, L&B World, World | August 31, 2015

It might come as a surprise, but driving a car at 200kph (125mph) is pretty dangerous.

Just to prove this blindingly obvious fact, a Swiss company has been filming some controlled simulations of 200kph car crashes.

The results will no doubt want to make you ease of the accelerator a little.

Crumple zones and seat-belts won’t help anyone at this speed, particularly when one of the vehicles is sandwiched between another car and a barrier.

While the number of road deaths in the UK has been steadily decreasing over the past decade, 2013 still saw 785 car users die on Britain’s roads.

‘Don’t worry, even if I evolve into Terminator, I’ll keep you warm and safe in my people zoo, where I can watch you for ol’ times sake,’ the bearded robot intoned.

His interviewer, from PBS, is visibly taken aback by the answer.
