Navy Seal Reveals How To Survive If You Are Being Drowned

Uncategorized
This morning in the helloU offices, it was agreed upon that we needed an article on how not to die if being drowned. I won’t lie to you, I was pretty worried about what I was going to say because I’ve got no clue. This is what I had… It’s fundamentally good advice but I doubt it would have passed the editing stage. Luckily I came across some slightly better advice from Navy Seals that fills in the gaps left by me. Clint Emerson is a formal Navy Seal and has just written a book on 100 vital skills that he learnt in the U.S. Navy. In the book,100 Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operatives Guide, he teaches the survival guide for when you’ve been captured and being drowned, whether in shallow waters or the sea.

This Firefighter Received The World’s Most Extensive Face Transplant

Uncategorized
Patrick Hardison used to joke with children that he had fought a bear. If anything, the way he actually got his scars was even more heroic.

The Volunteer Group Hunting Down The Missing People Police Couldn’t Find

Uncategorized
It’s very hard to imagine – especially in a world of mobile phones and constant social media posts – just how someone can go missing forever. But people do vanish all the time, and in Britain alone, almost 275,000 people are reported missing every year. In fact, one person goes missing in the UK every two minutes.What’s even scarier is that police, driven by lack of evidence, are often forced to close cases down unresolved, meaning that thousands of people’s disappearances remain a mystery. Nicholas Hoult and Charlize Theron’s latest movie, ‘Dark Places’, focuses on a group of amateur investigators called ‘The Kill Club’ who, curious about cold cases, meet up to try and fill in the gaps that the police left behind.

Miley Cyrus Posts Threat About Leaving The Country If Trump Becomes President

We all make threats about things. When your mum wouldn’t let you eat chicken dipper and potato smileys for dinner, you threatened to run away. Miley Cyrus is basically doing the same thing. Except it’s Trump, he’sthreatening to ruin things, so she’s saying she will leave the country if he gets into power. The difference is, she could actually do it because she’s an adult who is particularly wealthy. What she didn’t account for was that it might work the opposite way, in that people might vote for Trump in the hope that Cyrus leaves town. People are saying that’s what they’ll do, but they don’t mean it… right? Surely no one will vote for Trump? Wrong. Lots of people are. Tuesday was known as Super Tuesday in the US, with severa...

Unfortunately, the jellyfish in question didn’t take kindly to the idea of being made into a meal, and so stung Bear right on the hand. Now, if you’ve ever watched any type of survival show (Bear’s or otherwise), you’ll know that one of the best ways to remedy the pain caused by a jellyfish sting, is to put urine on it.

Hasbro has ditched the classic Twister mat for its latest version of the game — Twister Dance — opting instead for a digital setup complete with a sphere-shaped console, LED lights and a cable to connect your music player. The mat has been replaced by movable colored spots. The console syncs to music, and players must match their dance steps to the corresponding flashing lights. Twister Dance comes with five songs, including a "Till the World Ends" Twister remix from Britney Spears. A full music video of the remix premieres Sept. 9 at midnight on the game's website. The video features Spears, back-up dancers and Twister Dance (see below).

Illegal Hunter Mauled To Death By The Lion He Was Trying To Kill

Five menhave been attacked by the lion that they were hunting outside theKruger National Park in South Africa. While three managed to climb a tree, and another ran away, the fifth man was mauled to death, along with his two dogs. The men were hunting big game illegally, as none had licences, and While we don’t condone killing an endangered species for sport (the EOL classes the status of the lion species as ‘vulnerable’), describingthe death of a 24-year-old man as ‘poetic justice’ for the death of an animal, is perhaps a bit strong.

Remember when Shia LaBeouf, in a shock move that no-one saw coming, did some drugs. Specifically, acid. It was apparently in preparation for his film,The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, in which people were tripping on acid. To top it all off, ol’ shy Shia decided he’d live tweet the whole affair. It’s like what Twitter was made for… 3:15 AM 7 Aug 12 OK everybody here goes nothing. Im gonna light a cigarette. Where are my cigarettes. Brb going to Walgreens for cigs 3:45 AM 7 Aug 12 the security guard at Walgreens is a crazy guy. there was fire coming out of his ...

A Harry Potter Festival Is Happening In The UK This Weekend

Uncategorized
Will I ever grow out of Harry Potter? Would Ron ever be a Death Eater? Would Argus Filch ever acquire magical powers? Would Hermione ever fail a test? You see what I’m getting at, I even received a mystery package in the post the other day that contained this: Amazing right. So all the above should explain why I’m currently dropping all my plans for this weekend and heading to what has been heralded a “live interactive wizarding experience.” No words have ever sounded more tempting. Located at the magical Lancaster Castle, Sneaky Experience are putting on a series of outdoor screenings of all the Harry Potter movies at the following times: Thursday 25th. 6.30pm: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) Friday 26th, midday: Harry Potter and the Philosoph...

Police Are Hunting For A Teacher Who Got Pregnant By Her 13-Year-Old Student

Uncategorized
I don’t really feel like I should have to point this out, but one of the key rules of being a teacher is to make sure you don’t have any kind of intimate relationship with your students. You’d think it’d be a pretty easy rule to abide by, but judging by the news it sadly doesn’t seem to be… 24-year-old teacher Alexandria Vera is currently on the run from police, after admitting to a relationship she had with a 13-year-old student. The student, who she taught English at a school in Houston, Texas, had originally communicated with her via Instagram. After exchanging messages on social media, they then swapped numbers and agreed to meet up. After meeting up and kissing in her car, she drove to the boy’s house the following day and engaged in s...

The Reason This Isolated Tribe Are So Aggressive Towards Outside Contact

Uncategorized
Living in a world filled with modern technology, it can be difficult to imagine what life was like beforeit all came about. And we don’t just mean before the invention of iPads. Incredibly, there are still people who live in a ‘Stone Age’ society. Isolated, usually in thick jungle or on a remote island, these tribes are completely unaware that the world has modernised without them. Although scientists often try to study these‘uncontacted tribes’ – as a window into our own past – attempts to approach them canend in disaster. Take, for example, the Sentinelese people. They hadlived without any influence from the outside world for over 60,000 years, beforethey werediscovered by colonisers in 1879. Seeing them as dangerous, these invaders captured two...

Pokémon Go Players Come Across People Having Sex In Park – Carry On Playing

Uncategorized
For a while it seemed like Pokmon Go was here to stay. I was preparing to get married at a lucrative Pokstop to keep the guests happy in 60 years (if I’m lucky). Me and the wife were going to go on a walking trip for our honeymoon so we could hatch our eggs… I even learned how to type ‘’ quickly so I wouldn’t have to type ‘Pok’, then ctrl+v an acute e that I had copied later, then ‘mon’ because I had to write so many articles about it! But, from what I can tell from my very small friendship group, the hype is pretty much over and only Sam from videos and my sister are still consistently playing it. The only mileage we get from it now is when the few people who still bother to play it come across something untoward when they’re...

Expert Predicts That Man Will Be Hunted For Sport By The Super Rich In The Future

Uncategorized
Every now and then, when my friends and I are at the pub, conversation rolls on to what we’d arrange for each other’s stag-dos. It’s all pretty samey, really. Head over to Eastern Europe, maybe a bit of paint ball, boozy lunch, kill a man for sport, go clubbing or something. You know, normal stuff. But how logistically likely is that, really? Getting to Eastern Europe will be a tad more hassle if we leave the EU so that’s not great, paintball’s easy enough, boozy lunch is good too but you don’t want to overdo it if you’re going out clubbing too and then there’s killing men for sport – not currently legal. But as an expert has it, we may not be waiting that long (in the grand scheme of time) for that to become a viable, albeit too...

GoPro On Dog Captures The Terrifying Moment A Pack Of Wolves Attacked

Uncategorized
This has to be some of the most intense GoPro footage we have ever come across. Tommy Berglund was hunting moose with his dog Klara when she disappeared into the woods. Swedish hunting magazine, Svensk Jakt, report that when Klara returned she was bloody with bite marks all over her, and that it wasnt until reviewing the GoPro footage that he realised what had happened. The vet was only 20 minutes away and Klara made a full recovery within three days. She has been wearing a protective vest which basically saved her life. Heres the footage, some viewers may find this distressing. Read more: http://www.hellou.co.uk/2015/10/gopro-on-dog-captures-the-terrifying-moment-a-pack-of-wolves-attacked-65852/
9 Mainstream Superheroes That Turned Evil Before Captain America Did

9 Mainstream Superheroes That Turned Evil Before Captain America Did

Uncategorized
Captain America’s gone all Hydra on our collective arses and no one (bar a few Marvel executives) is all that happy about it. Hydra are basically Nazis and Captain America is like the epitome of not being a Nazi. But, although the world is in huge shock (still), it’s not the first time something like this has happened. Here’s a list of a few superheroes that turned evil to comfort you in that there may be hope for some ol’ Steve Rogers redemption… 1. Archangel Before the battle known as the“Mutant Massacre”, Angel had lovely feathery wings that even the most regal of doves would envy. Sadly for him, he got pinned to a wall by said wings which were, in turn, damaged beyond repair. In a sort of a bittersweet moment,Apocalypse came to his aid and...

This Is What Would Happen To The Earth If Humans Suddenly Disappeared

Uncategorized
In most post-apocalyptic scenarios, at least some humans survive. There’s a Rick Grimes, or a Mad Max or even a Neo (the one) around toensure the survival of our species. But what if no humans survived? What if we all suddenly – for whatever reason – just disappeared? What would happen then? Well, according to the folks over at Mind Warehouse, the Earth would get on pretty well without us… Pretty haunting, right?

“I Could Kill Some Crazy Stuff With A Bazooka”: Chloe Grace Moretz On How She’d Survive The Fifth Wave

Uncategorized
Since starring as the high-kick wielding, eleven-year-old Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, we always suspected we’d want Chloe Grace Moretz on our team if anything seriously bad was about to happen to the earth. In her new film, The 5th Wave, the words “seriously bad” are a bit of an understatement when it comes to the predicament of the world as we know it. In short, some pesky aliens appear and go all rouge landlord: kicking humans out as if they’ve been the worst tenants ever via five deadly waves of f*ck off. Chloe said it was actually a “harrowing film to make”: “We were so isolated in the woods most of the time. It was scary to have that amount of distance between you and civilization and to put yourself in the mindset of Cassie (her character)&hell...

(Side note: how creepy are newborn giant baby pandas?) And it just so happens that 2015 has been an excellent year for giant pandas. 15 panda’s – including six sets of twins… twin baby pandas, what could be better! – were born at the centre this year .
