"All we know is.. He's called The Stig"

The identity of the 'tame racing driver' on BBC's hit show Top Gear has been a fiercely guarded secret, until now! A recent photograph taken in London, captured his eyes through his crash helmet, leading to wild speculation as to his identity.

Mystery man or space alien, we love The Stig. Here are some interesting facts about him:

Some say his politics are terrifying, and that he was born in space.
Some say he is wanted by the CIA, and that if he could be bothered, he could crack the Da Vinci code in 43 seconds.
Some say he once threw a microwave oven at a tramp, and that if he went on Celebrity Love Island, they'd all be pregnant, including the cameramen.
Some say jimmy Carter wants him dead, and that his genitals are on upside down.
Some say his earwax tastes like Turkish Delight, and that on really warm days, he sheds his skin like a snake.
Some say he once, preposterously, had an affair with John Prescott, and that he has a tattoo of Buzz Aldrin on his thigh.
Some say he has a digital face, and that his skin has the texture of dolphins.
Some say he was raised by wolves, and that if given an important job to do, he'll skive off and play croquet.
Some say his voice can only be heard by cats, and that he has named every single blade of grass surrounding the Top Gear test track.
Some say he does not see like humans do, instead he sees numbers in green scrolling down, and that his brain is a Satellite navigation system.
Some say that he's not really human, that he's an advanced alien life form. Others say his favorite food is Walrus.
Some say long before anyone else he realised that Jade Goody was a racist, pig-faced, waste of blood and organs.
Some say he communicates only to a car's on board computer through binary code, and that he once killed a man who was towing a caravan, using only a steering wheel.
Some say he sucks moisture out of ducks and he models his crash helmet on Britney Spears' head.
Some say he appears on high-value stamps in Sweden, he's illegal in 17 U.S. states.
Some say that wherever you are in the world if you tune your radio to 88.4 you can actually hear his thoughts.
Some say that he has no understanding of clouds. Some that he once punched a horse to the ground.
Some say he once had a vicious knife fight with Anthea Turner, and that he is in no way implicated in the cash for honours scandal.
Some say his fingernails have 330 bhp and that he was raised by wolves.
Some say he's scared of bells, and confused by stairs.
Some say that he has 2 pairs of knee's.

All we know is... He's called The Stig!

The Stonehenge Trail

In the long time that I've been away from posting, I've crossed mighty oceans and travelled to a land where global warming works the other way around, football is religion, and Cornish pasties and apple pies have become my favourite food!

One of the first places I visited, was the world famous heritage monument, the stones that are Stonehenge! A place that some may find utterly disappointing, but has great history with many questions still unanswered. You can also buy tees with 'Stonehenge Rocks!' on them, or have a nice 'rock cake'.

If you're up for a challenge, The Stonehenge Heritage Trek is something you definitely should try.

Set out early and follow instructions precisely, or you might just end up on a farm being barked at by ferocious dogs. I wasnt too good at following directions, and ended up off track quite a few times. Only after I'd reached and was back home, did I realise that I should've taken pictures to help future trekkers. Here are a few, which don't really show the way, but show how beautiful the way is.

The images are in the order you should come across them. Feel free to contact me for directions!

After a long hiatus

When I wrote the first post on this blog, I told myself I would update it regularly. Just by reading the previous post, you can see how 'regular' I've been.

Obama has won not just the Democratic nomination, but is now the President Elect!! The financial crisis is real, and we're now in a period of recession. Mumbai, India has seen its worst terrorist attacks to date. And Christmas is just around the corner!

Unbelievable !!!

Most of the posts on this blog are really quite interesting. Do check it out !

This one particularly has me amazed !
The Victoria Falls situated on the Zambezi river between Zimbabwe and Zambia, where during the low season, you can actually stand right at the edge of the falls!! Keep in mind that this is the largest waterfall in the world in terms of volume. Easy access from both countries and good rail and bus links, make it a popular and inexpensive destination. Tourism in the recent years has increased rapidly, to a million visitors a year.

Swimming at the edge of Victoria Falls

Barack Obama: first African American to be nominated as a Presidential candidate from a major political party. Thurs Aug 28, 2008: exactly 45 years after a man with a dream stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial before a 200,000 strong crowd, an African American has almost risen to the highest possible office and made that dream a reality.

Obama's speech was moving to say the least. He touched upon all the issues that he promises to bring change to, and everything had a personal touch. Democrats who are often described as "bringing a knife to a gun battle" can be proud of their candidate, who fearlessly threw quite a few punches John McCain's way. After 8 years of tough talking and little action, America needs to stand up. "Change doesn't come FROM Washington, Change goes TO Washington." Point by point he refuted all the charges laid against him by the GOP, half of which are ridiculous. The only thing which some people might have felt was lacking, was a reach out to the Hillary supporters.

These persons spoke to Larry King on CNN:
For all those in the Just Say No Deal coalition, all I can say is, you have no principles. Cynthia Ruccia, a strong Hillary Clinton supporter now supports John McCain. Reason? The Democratic Party shouldn't be rewarded for their behaviour during the campaign which they feel was sexist. Is she against the war in Iraq? Yes. Is she pro-choice? Yes. Does she know McCain's views are exactly the opposite on these issues? Yes. But all this takes the back seat. and sexism. That's what she feels is more important! Not better healthcare, education or lower taxes for 95% of working Americans.

Elizabeth Joyce, of, another Clinton supporter, feels Obama 'hasn't earned her vote.' Don't listen to Clinton for whom she worked so hard, who now is throwing all her effort into backing Obama. She is waiting for a personal request from the man himself. McCain hasn't asked for her vote either. So her policy is this: He who asks for my vote, Gets it !! Where are your principles missy?? Don't you have a mind and don't you know what you want for your future? If spending billions on a war that shouldn't have started in the first place, and drilling for oil is what you want, stand up and vote for McCain. Don't do it cause you feel left out by Obama.

All I have to say is, GOBAMA !! \m/

Test Post

With the wonders of the internet, the things you can do are unlimited. Google in itself is a Godsend. With close to little effort I can carry out an interesting study. Hence, this little experiment of mine.

Aim : To study the influence of "popular keywords" on site traffic
Apparatus : Google Analytics
Procedure : Randomly filling in keywords that are (I think) commonly searched for

It's Britney Bitch !!

I was watching the Jimmy Kimmel show on the telly a few nights ago. Its killer by the way ! And well he pointed out that his band leader and saxophone player Cleto Escobedo III (such a cool name, has a touch of royalty.. makes me wish I was named Alexander III..) looks kinda like Adnan Ghalib, Britney's latest boy toy.


For those of you who know me well enough, I used to be a lowdown sleazebag celebrity reporter myself. So every now and then, I like to keep up with the industry news. Boy oh boy is gossip alive or what !! One of the umpteen celeb sites gave me the dirt. Adnan who used to/ still is a paparazzo for photo agency FinalPixx, seems to have found a place in mizz spears' heart (and bed.) PS:he's already married.

Like it is in these fast and easy times, the multitude had their bit to put in. From him being a Muslim but wearing a cross, to arguments over whether he's a Paki or Afghani (fcuk you racists) everyone had had their say. Though one guy's comment seemed to sum it all up quite well :
"This news story is about as mind-expanding as watching paint dry…"
