Man's 87-hour endurance bid to win BMW

THIS is the man who won a BMW in an endurance competition that saw him touch the car for 87 hours.

Song Changjiang, 27, was one of 120 original hopefuls who tried to keep a hand on the motor for as long as possible.

Contestants were aged 18 to 40 and were allowed a 15-minute break every four hours to sleep, eat and go to the toilet.

After four days and three nights just three people were still standing before one gave up in tears after his feet had swollen so much he could not walk.

Three hours later, the next contestant quit — leaving Song to drive away with the car in Chengdu, China.

But despite getting the motor on a five-year lease, he said: “I won but it was not worth it — I’d never do it again.

“At the end I didn’t have the strength to eat. Even if there is an award of a million, I will not take part in a contest like this in the future.”

Sexy students 'warned' illegally parked cars in Chengdu

Three female college students from universities in Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan province, "warned" vehicles parked illegally in front of a hospital on Tuesday to remind them not to violate the rules next time, according to China News, a website set up by the official China News Service.

The three college students wore army-green t-shirts, black hot pants and strapped fake guns to their thighs, embarking on a "kill" mission for illegally parked vehicles at the West China Second Affiliated Hospital of Sichuan University. They also left cards for drivers with tips on the correct way to park. The women said they used the unusual method to make people pay more attention to the issue of illegal parking. They wanted to make an impression to the drivers in the hope that they will be more thoughtful next time.

They also hope their mission will make more car owners be more civic-minded as they drive the streets.

Automaker uses baboons to test out childproof safety features

Hyundai let 40 monkeys do their worst to latest family car

Car manufacturer Hyundai has gone ape with its latest round of product testing.

To determine how childproof its new hatchback really is, the automaker let more than 40 baboons loose on the New Generation i30, which is designed for families with their own “little monkeys.” Its childproof features include more durable seats, cupholders and buttons, and use of easy-wipe plastics in the interior.

Hyundai brought its latest model to the Knowsley Safari Park in Merseyside, Britain, and left it in an enclosure with a horde of apes for 10 hours.

The primates swarmed the car and jumped on its seats, ate lunch in the backseat, scratched the paint and even bit the steering wheel. By the end of the day, the i30 was smeared and scraped, but otherwise in good shape, according to a news release.

The carmaker was pleased with the results of the unorthodox test. "You have to be pretty brave to subject a car to the most rigorous quality testers in the world, and the monkeys certainly gave our New Generation i30 a thorough examination," Hyundai's i30 product manager, Felicity Wood, said in the release. "The fact that it survived with only a few scrapes is testament to the way a modern Hyundai is designed and engineered."

As a gesture of gratitude to their new-found quality control specialists, Hyundai donated 1,000 pounds, or about $1,600, to the Primate Society of Great Britain.

The long awaited iPhone 5.

The Chinese have done it again with brand hijacking! This time, we bring you iPhone 5: The ice cream.

If it’s any country that loves Apple more than Americans do, it’s China. They want iPhones as portable stove tops and Apple products sent to them as offerings even when they’ve passed. Now we present to you the latest in China’s Apple offering: The long awaited iPhone 5. This new product is beginning to make rounds in the country and it’s quite possibly the coolest thing in town.

Literally. This newest version of iOS who knows what number has a one of a kind feature that offers icy mango or pear taste in the shape of the Apple logo. Talk about a completely new and surprising display, and oh so exotic! It doesn’t seem all too clear what new apps will be compatible with the model, except that it will finally incorporate one more of our human senses by tingling the cold sensation on our tongues. And from what we can assume, the iPhone 5 will be the lowest priced product Apple’s got to offer. Better act quick because it’s not going to last long!

Alright, all jokes aside, this ice cream is pretty ridiculous. Though, in the states we see ice cream trucks sell crazy treats shaped like Spongebob and Spiderman, so maybe an iPhone popsicle isn’t a bad idea after all? This much is clear: according to China, the iPhone 5 will be the most refreshing product you’ve ever seen from “Apple.” If we have readers in China, please go out and try to find this remarkable snack and tell us if it’s as delicious as it looks.

Dentist pulls out all ex-boyfriend's teeth after he dumped her

A dentist pulled out all her ex-boyfriend's teeth after he dumped her for another woman. Now the toothless man has been abandoned by his new girlfriend who says "she can’t be with a man without teeth."
The dentist Anna Mackowiak, 34, took revenge on her 45-year-old ex-lover Marek Olszewski, who strangely turned up at her surgery with toothache just a few days after breaking up with her.
Mackowiak gave Olszewski a heavy dose of anesthetic and then proceeded to pull out all his teeth. She then wrapped his head and jaw in a bandage to stop him opening his mouth. She told him there had been complications during surgery and that he would need to see a specialist.

Daily Mail reports Mackowiak is being investigated for medical malpractice and abusing the trust of a patient and she could face three years in jail.
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******.'"
The victim 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." He continued: "She told me my mouth was numb and I wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that I would need to see a specialist. I didn’t have any reason to doubt her, I mean I thought she was a professional. But when I got home I looked in the mirror and couldn’t f****** believe it. The b**** had emptied my mouth.The new girlfriend has now left me saying she can’t be with a man without teeth. And I’m going to have to pay a fortune on getting indents or something."

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, is actually valued at US$260 million (RM795 million).

The Star group chief editor Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai acknowledged the blunder in his Twitter account
