Titanic II Replica to Set Sail in 2016


Australian billionaire Clive Palmer announced that he will be commissioning the construction of a high-tech replica of the Titanic at a Chinese shipyard that is scheduled to make its maiden voyage from England to New York in 2016.

Only weeks after the 100th anniversary of sinking of the original vessel and the film 3D re-release of James Cameron’s Oscar-winning film, Palmer said he has signed a memorandum of understanding with state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to build the Titanic II.

Let’s hope Palmer is smart enough to include enough life boats this time. Over 1,500 people died when the original Titanic hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic during its first and only voyage. The ship was considered one of the most luxurious and ocean liner of its time.

Palmer did not release the details about how much his new project will cost but said he has established a … Read the rest…

Revenge of a Bitter Ex-Girlfriend: Dentist Pulls Out All Of Her Ex’s Teeth

A bitter dentist is now facing jail time after removing all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth because, you guess it, he dumped her.

Anna Mackowiak, 34, took revenge on her ex Marek Olszewski when he came in to her surgery with a toothache just days after leaving her for another woman. That’s a little insensitive, and stupid…

She heavily sedated Olszewski, pulled out all his teeth, and wrapped his head with bandages he couldn’t open his mouth and see what she had done.

The dentist, who works in Wroclaw, Poland, said: ‘I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions.
‘But when I saw him lying there I just thought, “What a b******”.’

Olszewski said: ‘I knew something was wrong because when I woke up I couldn’t feel any teeth and my jaw was strapped up with bandages. She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t … Read the rest…

Strange, but True: The Story of Edgar Allan Poe

Not only are his works of literature the stuff of legends these days, but Edgar Allan Poe himself has become a legend in his own right. He may not be the drunkard and drug-addict that an enemy claimed he was in a largely false biography, but there is certainly enough mystery to make it most appropriate that he is best known for dark and macabre works of his own.

I don’t know when my own love for Poe began. Perhaps it was when one of my teachers told the story of Poe getting thrown out of West Point on purpose, by means of coming to roll-call wearing nothing at all but a belt – a story that I have not yet heard from anyone else and so regard it as an embellishment and fictional story much like Poe’s works themselves – but something led me to try and stage my … Read the rest…

Betsey Johnson Files for Bankruptcy!

Oh Betsey, say it ain’t so!

The fashion industry received some semi-startling news yesterday after Betsey Johnson’s chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. As a result, more than 350 employees are expected to lose their jobs, with a majority of the 63 Betsey Johnson stores closing next month.

Betsey said in a statement, “I feel so sad for my store people and all my pink girls. They live and die for me. But I need to be better. I really need to work well and be more efficient.”

The company was bailed out by Steve Madden in 2010 after it defaulted on a $48 million loan, so unfortunately it was a move foreseen by many.

Betsey says she will continue to work hard and put most of her focus on her more affordable line sold at Macy’s. “I love the moderate price range,” Johnson told WWD. “It is in sync … Read the rest…
