Stay classy: “F**k you, NATO!” chants echo through streets of Chicago; Weather Underground makes cameo appearance

http://twitter.com/#!/Marathonpundit/status/203871187149918208

Blogger John Ruberry is braving the streets of Chicago to capture the noble, anti-NATO protests.

Because, you know, dropping F-bombs and rhyming “Congress” with “progress” is juuuuust like the Arab Spring.

Hope the Occupiers’ parents are proud and happy with how their college investments have paid off!

Ruberry also snapped a cameo appearance by Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Doehrn. Awww:

Break Out Your Checkbook. You’re Going To Want To Invest In This Drone Company.

It’s a nightmare scenario: You’re sitting at your favorite restaurant surrounded by friends and family. It’s your birthday and the drinks are flowing. Everyone’s having a killer time. All of a sudden, your heart starts to give out. And it hits you with a pain unlike anything you’ve felt before.

You’re having a heart attack.

There’s little chance you’ll survive, unless by some miracle there’s a defibrillator around. But that’s about to change.

Meet the answer to your prayers. The flying defibrillator!

“Around 800,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest in the European Union every year and only 8.0 percent survive.” Momont, 23, said at TU Delft University. “The main reason for this is the relatively long response time of emergency services of around 10 minutes, while brain death and fatalities occur with four to six minutes. The ambulance drone can get a defibrillator to a patient within a 12 square kilometre (4.6 square miles) zone within a minute, increasing the chance of survival from 8 percent to 80 percent.”

You have to watch this thing in action. It’s genius!

The drone tracks emergency mobile calls and uses GPS to navigate. Once at the scene, an operator (like a paramedic) can watch, talk, and instruct those helping the victim by using an on-board camera connected to a control room via a livestream webcam. 

Although it costs about $19,000 right now and is only available in Amsterdam, I’m sold. Who’s ready to invest and save some lives?

This 9-1-1 Call From An Abducted Woman Is Absolutely Chilling

I don’t think I could ever handle being a 9-1-1 dispatcher.

Listening to desperate people going through the worst moments of their lives and begging for help has to take a toll on you. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to take so many terrified calls, let alone be the actual people calling. That’s why I have to commend this woman for her bravery.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Not only had she been kidnapped by a complete stranger, but she was taken to a vacant house and tied up near the bodies of two people that her kidnapper had already killed. Fearing that she’d be next, she broke free while he was sleeping and managed to call for help.

This is the chilling recording of her call.

It took a lot of guts for her to alert police with her abductor right next to her. I’m not sure I would have been able to do the same. To learn more about this story, click here.

15 Simple Ways To Stay Young, Even When You’re Old. Try All Of These.

Growing up: everybody does it sooner or later, and it comes with its benefits and its drawbacks. For example, no one can make you go to bed, but you’re going to feel your decision in the morning. No one can make you clean your room, but you have to pay to keep the lights on. You don’t have homework, but you have a job.

Never fear! Adulthood doesn’t have to be all drudgery and paperwork. Take a cue from these folks who know how to tap back into their kid sides and have some fun.

1.) Learn (or teach someone) to ride a bike.

This is going to be me in about forty years. I still can’t ride a bike.

2.) Use a slide.

The slide isn’t exactly the only youthful item here…

3.) Indulge your tastes from time to time.

Also make bad “time” puns on pictures of watches.

4.) Save an artifact from childhood.

The fact that they’ve managed to keep this towel so clean shows some seriously adult responsibility.

5.) Take a treasure and give it a grown-up makeover.

Taking “classic car” to a whole new level.

6.) Make stupid jokes.

They seem to have an equal view of all kinds of diverse relationships. Aw!

7.) Make stupider jokes.

I wanna see what they did to Braveheart.

8.) Understand that you have needs.

If anyone asks about your need to have a ball pit, you can tell them it’s therapeutic. It’s not exactly a lie.

9.) Play pretend with others.

Ikea is like another planet.

10.) Relive your childhood memories sometimes.

I don’t see any kids on this at all.

11.) But also try embracing the new kid trends.

“Oh, I can catch them all.”

12.) Use your adult advantage in kid activities.

After years of stealthy playground games, Grandma had become a formidable military strategist.

13.) Make something fun out of whatever you have.

The mighty Tube Slapper is ready to defend its alpha status!

14.) Keep seeing things as potential for fun.

I like to think their cart is full of kid-themed snack food as well.

15.) Show other kids that they don’t have to take growing up too seriously.

“Get your own swing!”

These people know how to take a break and get back to their kid roots! We suggest you try some of these out. Go ahead! What’s stopping you?

The World’s Creepiest Statues Will Give You The Nightmares You Deserve.

What makes statues so creepy? Is it because even though they are a representation life, they are so stubbornly lifeless? Or is it because we can never prove they aren’t moving when we turn our backs? Take a look at some of the creepiest statues that silently watch over the world’s parks and cities.

You’re going to be looking over your shoulder more after this.

1.) “The Anonymous Statue” Budapest, Hungary

2.) “Le Passe-Muraille” Paris, France

3.) “The Freemont Troll” Seattle, WA

4.) “The Cloaks Of Conscience” Austria, Greece, Italy, Czech Republic

5.) “Virgin Mother” London, England

6.) “The Haserot Angel of Lakeview Cemetery” Cleveland, OH

7.) “Tower Babies” Prague, Czech Republic

8.) “Black Aggie” Washington DC

9.) “Cerný Wenceslas” Prague, Czech Republic

10.) “The Awakening” Washington DC

Ugh, the creepiest statues always have hooded cloaks. I think I’m just scared there might actually be a real person hiding under the hood. Give this a share on Facebook if you agree.
