Flying ghost caught on video at Bukit Brown cemetery!

Catch Part 1 of Ghost Hunt at Bukit Brown cemetery on Klik.TV and watch out for the flying ghost that we caught on video. What a catch! Like our previous Bukit Batok park videos (Part 1 and Part 2), we did experienced strange and unexplained acitivity throughout the night. There's something out there alright!

Here's Part 2 where Wesley from Singapore Paranormal Investigators, Kino and I walked deep inside the cemetery with our night vision camera. It was very dark and spooky and trust me, I won't be walking there alone - even if you guys want me to.

Return of the Ewok

Return of the Ewok is a mockumentary produced during the filming of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Warwick Davis is hired to portray the Ewok character Wicket, but must search both the real world and the Star Wars universe to find the scene he is supposed to appear in. He meets many Star Wars cast members, both in and out of character, along the way.

The film was shot by Return of the Jedi's first assistant director, David Tomblin, with the intention of being used as a marketing piece for the movie, but this never materialized. Watch Parts 1, 2 and 3 above.

Dude automates his home with iPad

Alan uses an iPad  for his home automation system to make his life a little better. He writes: "I've had a touch monitor, Nokia N800, and even an iPhone mounted to my walls.

Horse Boy spotted on Google Street View

Google Street View's roving eye picked up a man in a purple shirt, black pants, wearing a brown horse-head mask. No one knows the Horse Boy's true identity and so far he's only been spotted in various parts of Scotland but that's enough to cause a spike in horse-mask sales.

Football Ice Mold is great for the World Cup

The Football Ice Mold creates professional ice footballs that melt slowly, keeping drinks cool - ideal for both bars and home use. Just heat the mold briefly in hot water, place good-quality ice in the mold, put on the top, and it works on its own!

Business Card turns into Brushless DC Motor

Matt and Duncan from Metrix Create:Space didn't have anything to hand out at the Seattle Central Creative Academy Portfolio Show so they decided to engrave and cut a business card that turns into a brushless DC motor! Btw, it really works.

Futurama X-Men

Carl writes about his Futurama X-Men poster: "A friend of mine suggested one day that it would be cool to see the characters of Futurama as X-Men and so I drew him Fry as Cyclops. For some reason I couldn't just stop there...and what came of it was a pretty extensive illustration with some of the most obscure characters from both the X-Men and Futurama universes."

The Best Place for a Vuvuzela is...


There are two things I really hate about this year's World Cup. One is England's mediocre performance - they are worse than rubbish, I tell you - and two is the vuvuzela. Those fans who are blowing the vivuzelas non-stop during matches, should just stuff their vuvuzelas into their asses!

Check out these videos on YouTube. Awesome! My favourite is the last one. It shows Starbucks completely flooded! I hope those guys bought insurance that covers damage caused by acts of god.

How Dinosaurs Learned To Fly

The dinosaurs were headed for trouble. They ate nothing but junk food. They never brushed their teeth. They stayed up all night. And though they loved jumping off cliffs, they didn't like the landings much. The early mammals tried to warn them. "Keep that up and you'll all be extinct!" they said. But the dinosaurs just laughed... and over time, they evolved into birds.

North Korea shows the world how not to pay for World Cup

South Korean broadcaster SBS accused North Korea of broadcasting a pirate recording of Friday's opening FIFA World Cup match in South Africa. North Korea initially wanted SBS to broadcast the World Cup to North Koreans for free but SBS wanted a fee so Kim Jong-il had no choice but to pirate the World Cup. All hail the Dear Leader!
