This guy looks surprisingly good for someone enduring 9 G-forces

| blog, L&B World, Weird | October 1, 2015

This man is not pulling a Sylvester Stallone face for kicks, he is enduring nine G-forces in a centrifuge training device.

The video shows a US Airman being swung around at great force to help him experience the immense level of acceleration he could experience in a fighter jet.

Throughout his grim experience, he is repeatedly advised to ‘squeeze the butt, squeeze the legs and breathe’ which you witness him at least attempting to do.

In his hand is a handbrake which if loosened – immediately applies brakes to the test returning him back to safe levels.

Police smash into car window to rescue doll they thought was a baby

| blog, L&B World, News | October 1, 2015

The doll that police believed was locked in the car. Police smashed their way into a car parked outside a Dudley hospital fearing a sick baby was locked inside - only to find the "infant" was a doll. See NTI story NTIDOLL. The baby doll, named Ryan, had been left by its owner, 10-year-old Janaih Rattray, lying in a blanket on the front passenger seat of her sister Delesia's Vauxhall Corsa on the car park at Russells Hall Hospital while they visited their mother. Janaih's family say they believe that observing the doll's hands, which they claim were visible in the car, it should have been possible for the officers to realise it was not real.
