Pot-hole problems

A photographer has come under fire in China for his pictures of a man falling off a bicycle. The man came a spectacular cropper in Xiamen city after his bike hit a pot-hole submerged in rainwater. But photographer Liu Tao was accused of lying in wait to take his pictures instead of warning people of the danger.

Readers of the Beijing Youth Daily, which published the shots, wrote in to express their feelings. One wrote: "The pictures are well shot, but the person who shot this is disgusting. He knew there was a pit, but was waiting there for someone to fall over." And another said: "The photographer should really be condemned since he knew there definitely would be other victims."

Liu defended himself, saying: "I just knew that the city government has paved the pit, and without my pictures, the pit would not be noticed by the government, and there would perhaps be more people falling over."

Remembering Athens


Kuwaiti stockbrokers watch trading monitors in Kuwait. Kuwaiti stocks on Wednesday posted their biggest one day percentage gain in a year as soothing words from the oil-rich country's prime minister helped the Arab world's No. 2 bourse rebound from a 600-point selloff.

Bathroom business

Attu wonders why it is that girls never go to the bathroom alone. If you have the answers to his questions, leave it in the comments. And check out the hilarious collection of pictures that illustrate the issue (LSFW).

Frog Festival

To quote from the festival website: "You can bring your own frog or rent one." That's right. The progressive Cajun town of Rayne doesn't like to see anyone left behind. For those too destitute to own their own frog, the city's Chamber of Commerce will gladly lend them one for a small fee.

But what more could you expect from the Frog Capital of the World? It's where 50,000 people gather to honor frogs with races, concerts, festival rides... and then eat some. There's no better place to find out that frog legs really are quite tasty. Best feature: The picture of you in a frog suit dancing the swamp pop with a bottle of moonshine in your hand is the heirloom of a lifetime.

NY taxis

Hidden amid the cargo depots at Kennedy International Airport, a four-acre lot contains hundreds of taxis waiting for lucrative fares to Manhattan, the dreaded "shorty" trips to Brooklyn and Queens or the dream rides to New Jersey and Connecticut. A great slideshow by the New York Times.

It's been a while, but I figured it was about time to post something odd like I used to (check out the archives). Disneyland begins an 18-month celebration of its 50th birthday this week. A great opportunity to dig up some obscure Disneyland facts.

On Splash Mountain, high-spirited women sometimes lift their blouses for the cameras that snap souvenir pictures. These girls-gone-wild photos are usually destroyed by park employees, but more than a dozen were smuggled out and posted on an Internet site called "Flash Mountain."

When it opened in 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean used real human skeletons as props. In an upcoming book, Imagineer Jason Surrell writes, "Because the original Imagineering team felt that the faux skeletons of the period were just too unconvincing, the grotto sequence originally featured real human remains obtained from the UCLA Medical Center. The skeletons were later returned to their countries of origin and given a proper burial."

Late at night, on rides such as Pirates of the Caribbean and It's a Small World, amorous couples regularly try to make the Happiest Place on Earth even a little happier. They're apparently unaware that virtually every inch of every ride is observed by security cameras or hidden employees. Sometimes they're startled by a warning from a loudspeaker; occasionally they're greeted at the exit by applauding employees.

A new smile for the toothless

Philippine Navy officers try their new dentures at the Navy headquarters in Manila. Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's husband Mike Arroyo gave away at least 6,000 free dentures to police officers, military personnel, their dependents and civilian employees in the capital as part of his project "A New Smile for the Toothless" to help them regain their self-confidence.
