Exercising Generates Electricity.

A Hong Kong-based renewable energy entrepreneur and the inventor of the idea, says an average person can produce 50 watts of electricity per hour.

The serious exerciser's motto used to be, no pain, no gain. At Hong Kong's California Fitness centers, the new catch phrase might be, no sweat, no light. When club members use certain exercise machines, the energy they generate is turned into stored electricity. To make the fluorescent tubes in the studio's ceiling light up, they have to start pumping.

Homer Simpson Reward For Safe Return.

Reward offered for kidnapped Homer Simpson


Posted Thu Jun 21, 2007 6:16pm AEST

Cartoon character Homer Simpson has been kidnapped in Malaysia and Hollywood is offering a reward of 1,000 ringgit ($A346) for his safe return.

Film studio Twentieth Century Fox announced the bounty after a 1.2-metre statue of Homer was stolen from a cinema display in a mall in the Malaysian capital.

Motion Picture Association country manager Nor Hayati Yahaya says it was one of a set of outsize replicas of the family being used to advertise The Simpsons Movie, set for release in Malaysia next month.

"This guy is really dumb, because he must know that in a mall there are lots of surveillance cameras," he said.

"We got footage of his car, plate number, his face, everything."

The New Straits Times newspaper published grainy closed-circuit TV pictures showing two men bundling Homer out of the mall before he was driven off in the boot of a car.

Heavy metal officially classified as disability.


Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction


A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.

Roger Tullgren, 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden has just started working part time as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren's salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.

"I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.

"I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."

Roger Tullgren first developed an interest in heavy metal when his older brother came home with a Black Sabbath album in 1971.

Since then little else has mattered for the 42-year-old, who has long black hair, a collection of tattoos and wears skull and crossbones jewelry.

The ageing rocker claims to have attended almost three hundred shows last year, often skipping work in the process. Read full article

Want Inspiration? In Sydney Nsw you will find it


Want some inspiration to get up and live life? Go to WalkSydneyStreets where 92yr old Alan Waddell will give it to you in street loads. S ee the real Sydney Australia while your there. As someone that didn't listen to the docs advice Alan puts me to shame. Well never too late is it. You can send Alan a note to be added to his mailing list or just say G'day. I woke up a few hours after doing this to see he had personally answered my email. What a legend. Inspiration category.
Do you have a friend living in Bondi? Birchgrove or maybe Concord just go to Alans index and have a closer look at what that suburb looks like. If your a trivia fan Alan has that as well.

In brief
Alan Waddell 92, was encouraged by his doctor to take up walking. After a while, repeating the same route every day became boring. So Alan Waddell decided to walk every street in his own suburb. In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.

Nosey in Newtown

My second find was Nosey in Newtown which is all about what goes on right under your nose. It's curiosity about your habitat and engagement with your home. It's treading every footpath and delighting in every funny-looking dog and finding the beautiful in the familiar

Smorgasblog - Watching Watching

Smorgasblogs Well it is like a smorgasbord full of blogs over at BloggingToFame.


Was this a new word "smorgasblog" a looplyplus1 created one? no Google is my friend and told me that Smorgasblog has been around for long time. Was thought of back in the day. Which day? well before yesterday the day back back and some more.

Today VWorld is a SmorgasBlog

Am I thinking loopy or is it like blogging is going back towards the beginning when there was communities like live journal, blurty and similar? Reading about the for and against "Technorati Favorites Exchange" debate makes no sense. Favoriting a blog to me just means that it's in your favorites. Duh duh. Not like you are going to buy X amount of advertising on it are you? If an advertiser is that dumb and clueless that they are going to come along and think WOOHOO this blog has 11500 people favorited it on technorati! Quick buy ad space, lets stick our useless E-book on "11500 ways you can blog for dollars" there! Well that's their fault isn't it? Seems some of the "serious bloggers" have their nose out of joint over this. Lucky loopy blog is not fixated on this. Smile it's Friday. Like truthfully how many "How to earn money while being a know it all expert" blogs can you read in one day. They all look the same after a while.

Watching Watching you just never know do you? All the more reason to dress to shop, walk, jog eat or just amble along on lifes byways Plus you never know when your going to be thrown into the back of an ambulance Best knickers are a must.

The party has been spoiled for some armchair tourists using Google's Street View - the all-seeing search giant has begun removing "objectionable" images at the request of users.

Street View, which allows Google Maps users to zoom in to street-level for a 360-degree view of major US cities, caught the ire of privacy activists everywhere when it was unveiled late last month.

Google's camera-equipped vans snapped the cities' unsuspecting inhabitants in all manner of unflattering poses. The most avid Google street tourists set up entire websites - such as and - just to aggregate the most amusing findings.

But some people apparently didn't see the humour in having shockingly detailed images of their recent strip club visit or exposed g-string immortalised on Google Maps.

Some have written to Google asking that certain images be removed. In these cases, Google replaces the offending photos with a "This image is no longer available" message over a black background.

Already, Google's snaps of what appeared to be a crime scene have been taken down. The scene can still be viewed from a distance, but zoom in close enough and the screen goes blank.

And the now infamous photo of a woman exposing her g-string as she leans over has also been removed.

Images of a man entering an adult bookstore and another standing out the front of a strip club are still online for all to see, but their days could be numbered. READ MORE
