Cebu Pacific Airlines - Just Dance!

A VIDEO of flight attendants dancing in the aisles through a safety demonstration has become an internet sensation.

The footage - taken on a Cebu Pacific flight in the Philippines - shows sexy stewardesses grooving along to Lady Gaga's Just Dance.

Filmed by a stunned passenger, the clip was posted on YouTube and has racked up more than seven million hits in just a week.

The flight attendants were trained by choreographers for the stunt aimed at getting the attention of passengers.

At the end of the two-minute demonstration, the orange-clad flight crew are given a round of applause.

A Cebu Pacific spokeswoman said: "We have always been a fun and very family-oriented company.

"The reaction has been positive. The passengers did pay attention."

Cebu Pacific is not the first airline to ask its staff to grab passengers' attention in unusual ways.

In 2009 Air New Zealand produced a saucy safety video showing flight attendants wearing nothing but body paint.

But the Cebu Pacific dance moves have been slammed in the Philippines.

Several politicians and the union for the country's flag carrier Philippine Airlines said the video was demeaning to women.

Men have now also been trained to do the dance.

Absolutely brilliant idea! Love it!

Brilliant! I never watch when they are doing the safety thing, but I would have watched and enjoyed that on a normally boring flight.

I Go Ape!

DON'T do that, mum - it makes me go ape.

A baby gorilla howls with delight as his mother tickles him during a rough-and-tumble in their mountain home.

This amazing photo of their monkey business was taken in the remote Virunga Mountains in Rwanda, East Africa - home of the apes that inspired the hit movie Gorillas In The Mist.

Oh that is so beautiful!!! The Apes are being slaughtered, they are sold on the streets as bush meat and the babies are normally chained up in yards to amuse the locals. The hands are used as ashtrays and sold around the world. It is heartbreaking t see what is happening to these amazing creatures.

They are more intelligent than the goons who murder them, It hope they get caught up one and the apes rip them apart.

There's only one story I could possibly have picked today...

THE first Chilean miner to be freed hugged his little son for the first time in 69 days after he was dramatically released from his underground hell today.

As the rescue capsule travelled slowly to the surface eight-year-old Byron was seen on the verge of tears waiting patiently to see dad Florencio Avalos.

The 31-year-old miner was met by the overwhelmed lad who broke down with excitement as his dad, wearing dark glasses to protect his eyes, bent down to embrace him.

Afterwards he spoke to Chilean President Sebastian Pinera before he was taken to a triage area for medical and psychological assessment.

The overjoyed crowd cheered and sang as the first of the 33 men, trapped since the San Jose mine collapsed on August 5, was brought to the surface.

A rescuer was earlier lowered down to calm the men before their historic journey.

Florencio - a father-of-two who has a younger brother down in the mine - appeared calm as he arrived on the surface.

But experts said he is likely to be have been overwhelmed by the reaction as he was brought above ground.

Do you want fries and a soda with that?

MEXICANS cooked up the world's biggest enchilada — measuring 230ft and weighing 1.5 TONS.

The giant spicy wrap was pieced together by residents of Iztapalapa, a borough in the east of Mexico City.

It was officially declared the world's biggest enchilada by Guinness record official Ralph Hannah.

The colossal concoction was made of corn tortillas, white onions, serrano chillies, green tomatoes, avocado, cheese, cream and a sea of salsas.

Mexico City tourism secretary Alejandro Rojas said: "With this Guinness record we are showing the world that Iztapalapa is a high-level tourist destination."

The city has gone for a number of world records recently, including the largest number of people dancing Michael Jackson's Thriller and the most people kissing simultaneously.

Dunno bout you but I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the people eating that in about....ooooh....three of four hours. What a Face

Shopping for the Bear Necessities

Post  El Guapo on Tue Oct 19, 2010 6:09 am

TWO giant brown bears ventured out of their forest home — to take a stroll through a town centre.

The 300lb beasts were spotted by children near a school in rural Hokkaido, northern Japan.

They then took a 40-minute ramble through the streets.

The Hokkaido bears, known in Japan as "higuma", are particularly powerful and aggressive.

They have been known to attack humans in the district, which is the size of Ireland, and where around 3,000 of the animals live in the wild.

A third bear that formed part of the family group has not been found.

I've heard of 1/2 time oranges but 1/2 time vodka?!

FOUR football players fainted during a crunch promotion match after being given drinks allegedly laced with sedatives.

Peruvian side Hijos de Acosvinchos lost nearly half their side during a crunch promotion clash after gulping down energy drinks in beakers handed to them by an opposing team coach during a break in play.

TV images showed the players falling to the pitch one by one and teammates confronting rivals Sport Ancash over suspicions they were the victims of a dirty trick.

One star collapsed seconds after the game was restarted after a teammate had been rushed away by and ambulance amid fears he had an undetected heart condition.

Hospital tests later revealed the players had traces of a sleep-inducing tranquilliser in their blood.

Sport Ancash went on to win the match 3-0 and secure promotion.

Football chiefs have been asked to launch a probe and put the move on hold.

Hijos de Acosvinchos boss Americo Ibanez said: "My boys say Ancash medical staff gave them a liquid which made them feel dizzy and faint.

Sorry Officer! I've been baaaaaaaaaaad!

A SEXY teacher has outraged parents at a strict Catholic school — after pupils found saucy footage of her on the web.

Former beauty queen Ileana Tacconelli, 28, who has three degrees, caused a storm after it emerged she was once a kinky glamour model.

One furious mother pulled her daughter from the school but other parents — mainly dads — have stood by Ileana.

The controversy erupted after a mum complained to Father Aldo Geranzani, head of the prestigious San Carlo Catholic High School in Milan, claiming Ileana was "too attractive" and "a distraction".

Fuel was added to the fire after video of her acting in a comic sketch dressed in hot pants and a bra emerged, as well as photographs of her posing in an American police uniform.

In her early 20s, Ileana was crowned Miss Abruzzo — a region of central Italy — and was entered for the country's national beauty pageant.

She went on to study at university, gaining her teaching qualifications.

But despite having brains as well as beauty, it has not enamoured her to some parents at the school — although some dads have set up a fan club in her honour.

Ileana said: "I don't really want to say too much and add any more to this story.

"All I will say is that if I had wanted to be a model or a showgirl I would have done it when I was younger and prettier."

School spokesman Osvaldo Songini said: "Ileana passed all the very strict requirements to be a teacher here and we are very satisfied.

"She was supervised during her probation and there were no problems.

"For us here, from don Geranzani down, she is an optimum teacher and she has all the qualifications needed. We knew all about her past as she never kept it hidden."

The mother in question said: "I am not a bigot but I feel betrayed — I expected more from the San Carlo especially with the reputation it has."

The Russians are coming!! What a Face What a Face What a Face

A DESPERATE hunt was on last night for a Russian nuclear submarine lurking off the coast of Britain.

The Akula class vessel is playing a tense game of cat and mouse.

It vanished after being spotted in the North Sea earlier this week - when it was thought to be tracking a Royal Navy Trident submarine. The alert is embarrassing for the Government as it exposes the shocking gap in British capabilities left by the defence cuts.

PM David Cameron announced this week that Britain's Nimrod anti-submarine jets are being axed.

A US spy plane training in Britain joined the hunt. But an RAF source said: "The Nimrod would find the sub."

I must remember to get some matching shoes for this...

NO, you haven't gone barking mad - this dog likes to walk on its hind legs carrying its own bear-shaped handbag.

Lu Lu the miniature pinscher is a celebrity in its home city of Zhumadian in China.

And that cool bag is the mutt-have accessory for the growl-about-town.

If You're Ever At Claridges; Don't Order The Bubble & Squeak!

GORDON Ramsay has hit double trouble - reportedly calling in TV Dragon Peter Jones to save his business and finding a MOUSE in one of his top eateries.

The TV chef's restaurant empire has leaked millions since the credit crunch and is said to be £17.8million in debt.

Fiery Scot Gordon, who has already poured in £5million of his own money, is now counting on Dragons' Den star Peter to stop the rot, according to reports.

The Hell's Kitchen star, 43, is said to have blamed the financial crisis on father-in-law and long-term business partner Chris Hutcheson.

It is claimed he last week banned Hutcheson - dad of his wife Tana - from his HQ and all his restaurants after he quit as CEO of Gordon Ramsay Holdings.

The two men first fell out over profits, expansion - and allegations that Ramsay had a seven-year affair.

Tension had been building since 2008, when the company lost £8.3million after international expansion as the credit crunch took hold.

Meanwhile, diners at Ramsay's Michelin-starred Maze Grill in London's Mayfair told how they watched staff chase a mouse between tables for 30 MINUTES.

Customers said the tiny rodent appeared from beneath a bench before running under a table as people ate.

David Moreton, 51, from Inverness, Scotland, said: "It was extraordinary to think a mouse was loose in one of London's best restaurants. My wife can't stand them and was absolutely terrified. It totally ruined her night."

A spokesman for Gordon Ramsay Holdings Ltd said: "We have apologised. Pest controllers have since given us a clean bill of health."

Is There Life On Mars?

According to latest plans by NASA, there soon will be...

SPACE scientists aim to launch the flight of a lifetime - with astronauts going to Mars and never coming back.

The interplanetary pioneers would make a one-way trip to set up a human colony on the red planet or its moons.

The ambitious project is being championed by NASA official Pete Worden - who heads one of the agency's top research centres which has been given £1million to start work on the idea.

And he hopes wealthy investors will fund the venture.

Mr Worden - whose dream is dubbed the Hundred Years Starship - said he had already discussed the cost with Google co-founder Larry Page, telling him a mission to Mars could cost no more than £7billion.

Mr Worden said: "The human space program is now really aimed at settling other worlds."

The NASA team believes it could send a team of astronauts to settle on Mars by 2030 - illustrated above.

That journey could take between six and nine months but establishing bases on other worlds would involve flights many times longer.

Volunteers would leave Earth knowing they would never return.

NASA believes it would be too expensive to fly people to and fro.

Instead, they would establish a colony and be sent regular supplies until they could become totally self-sufficient.

Experts are convinced the necessary technology already exists.

Dirk Schulze-Makuch and Paul Davies write in the current Journal of Cosmology: "A one-way human mission to Mars would not be a fixed duration project, as in the Apollo program, but the first step in establishing a permanent human presence.

"There are many reasons why a human colony on Mars is a desirable goal, scientifically and politically.

"The strategy of one-way missions brings this goal within technological and financial feasibility.

"Nevertheless, to attain it would require not only major international cooperation but a return to the exploration spirit and risk-taking ethos."

They compared the spirit of the first people to live on Mars to the early settlers in North America - travelling to a distant land, knowing they would never return home.
