P.S - Obviously, it all begins in China. 

1. The mistress dispellers of China.

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
It is not every time that a divorce has to turn into a free-for-all slugfest with each party suing the other for all their money and dignity. It happens quite often now, but not always. Take China, for example. They do not believe in getting the government involved if two people don't want to live with each other. Since there is a huge social stigma around women getting divorced in China, not to forget the financial stress associated with a divorce, an ever increasing number of women are going to companies that specialise in driving their husbands' mistresses away. They are the 'Mistress Dispellers'. Businessmen and high ranking officials keeping a mistress is not uncommon in China at all. With the booming economy, the number of such businessmen is only increasing. To tackle this, women approach such mistress dispellers. The dispellers, for a handsome amount of money (upwards of $10,000), coach the wife in distress to be stronger, more attractive for the husband and teach them how to tackle certain situations, while also using a number of tactics to get rid of the mistress. Needless to say, these people are pretty good at it. DoubleUteeeeff man! 

2. The smile ball

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
Well, Japan isn't far behind either. For thousands of years, people around the world were doing just fine with normal onions. Yes, they would make us teary-eyed but it's only momentary and doesn't cause a lot of problems. But one Japanese group has decided to take it upon themselves to fix this. House Foods Group in Japan has come up with the "Smile Ball" after apparently TWO DECADES of research. The Smile Ball is so innovative that it even won an IG Nobel Prize - a special award handed out to honour achievements for improbable research. Like the Razzies. The company doesn't plan to start producing these Smile Balls commercially anytime soon, though. If you don't know how you feel about this, know that the 5-6 tonnes of smile balls that were sold to the public as a trial run sold like hot cakes. 


3. Mad man jumped out of a plane without parachutes... and survived!

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
It happened! 42-year-old Luke Aikins, who also very evidently has balls of steel, actually jumped out of a plane from 25,000 feet without a freakin' parachute! He got away with it thanks to a 20-storey-high, 100x100 ft safety net that he landed on. But seriously, dude, WTF!?!? I would call this a fantastic act of bravery but it only takes so much before an act of bravery becomes an act of crazy, and this one is veering towards that. It's great that he survived and hopefully, he won't try it again, but what about the millions of stupid people out there who get inspired only to literally fall to their deaths? Never underestimate the power of an idiot. 


4. Man wins a $3 million lottery, lands up in jail for selling meth.

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
Ronnie Music Jr. was a poor man with a lot of ambitions. Which is why when he won a whopping $3 million lottery, he did what every smart, rich guy would do - he decided to invest. But you know what they say about luck, right? Don't push it. Out of the millions of legal things he could've done with his money, 45-year-old Music Jr. decided to use it to sell methamphetamine. So when a dealer was caught trying to sell 11 pounds of meth in Georgia, Music Jr's name came up as the supplier. When the cops raided his place, they found 11 pounds of meth worth upwards of $500,000, $600,000 in cash and a lot of ammunition. You know how we always imagine ourselves as Tony Montana from Scarface with all the guns, drugs and the money? There's a reason people don't actually end up doing it. This guy is it. 



5. The Indian boy who's obsessed with milk - dog milk. 

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
There's nothing wrong with loving milk. But what if it's dog milk? Of course, it's not illegal per say, but it's frowned upon. Like masturbation on a flight. 10-year-old Mohit Kumar is one such lad who just loves a healthy bitch's milk. Ever since he was four, Mohit has been enjoying sucking on a bitch's nipple. So much so that his parents have now become desperate to make him stop doing the things he does to stray bitches. Once you're done shaking your head, spare a few seconds reading about the origin of this superhero story. Mohit was once playing with a stray dog when he happened to suck on the nipple of a bitch. Loving the taste, Mohit did not stop. His mother Pinky confirmed that the bitches around the area have also taken a liking to him and feed him, whenever Mohit wants. Fearing he would go down sucking the first stray bitch in the colony Mohit is not allowed to leave the house without adult supervision, forget going to school. So he sucks on nipples because he doesn't go to school, and he doesn't go to school fearing he'll end up sucking a bitch. How ironic.  

6. The man who wants to ruin the world with un-meltable ice-cream.

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
I don't know about you, but melting ice-cream creating an absolute mess is one of the best experiences in life. And this man is trying to take that away from us. To the joy of all those who love things prim and proper, 34-year-old Rob Collington (Gastronaut Ice Cream) has invented the Freeze-Dried Ice Cream - or ice cream that does not melt! Thankfully, the ice-cream itself doesn't taste great since it's got a lot of artificial ingredients. Take that, unmeltable ice-cream. You might look great and solid in the sun but you don't taste awesome, do ya? How about getting Mohit a little tasting session?


7. Russian bank offering insurance for Pokemon Go.

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
Pokemon Go itself is WTF enough. To make this worse than they already are, people are now offering insurance for it! Yes, a Russian bank, after realising that douchebags might actually end up hurting themselves catching Pokemon, came up with a plan offering Russians free Pokemon Go insurance, promising up to 50,000 rubles (Rs 50,000) in the case of any game- related accidents. Playing Pokemon Go is dumb, getting insurance for it is even dumber. 


8. The human designed to survive a fatal car crash.

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
It's not human, let's just get this out of the way first. Graham is actually a prototype of a person who might be able to survive the most fatal of car crashes. His head is like a helmet. He does not have a neck. He has weird feet, among other unnatural features. While the whole point of the campaign was to make people aware of the dangers of car accidents and improve our road systems, wouldn't it have made more sense in spending the time and the money figuring out a way to make cars safer for humans instead? 



9. South Korean army taking ballet lessons to relieve stress!

9 Completely WTF Things That Are Actually Happening Around The World In 2016
True, guarding national borders can get a bit stressful for soldiers. You can never tell when the enemy is going to attack. But sending soldiers dancing sounds a bit illogical, right? Not to the South Koreans, it isn't. Once every week, without fail, the South Korean army's 25th division drop their weapons to put on ballerinas! The authorities feel that this will relieve the stress of the soldiers and keep their mental health in check. Whether it actually ends up reducing stress levels, only time will tell, but they will surely end up mastering the art of doing a split.

[www.keralites.net] Mexican Jews

 









 Two old Jewish men, Sid and Abe, are sitting in a Mexican restaurant one day.
 
Sid asks Abe, "Do you know if any people of our ancestry were ever born and raised in Mexico ?"
 
Abe replies, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter."
                                     When the waiter arrives, Abe asks, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"

The waiter says, "I don't know senor, I ask the cooks.
" He returns from the kitchen after a few minutes and says,
"No senor, the cook say no Mexican Jews."
 
Abe isn't satisfied and asks, "Are you absolutely sure?"
 
The waiter, realizing he is dealing with "Gringos" replies,
"I check once again, senor," and goes back into the kitchen.
 
While the waiter is away, Sid says, "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Mexico . Our people are scattered everywhere."
 
The waiter returns and says, "Senor, the head cook Manuel, he say there is no Mexican Jews."
 
"Are you certain?" Abe asks again. "I just can't believe there are no Mexican Jews!"
 
"Senor, I ask EVERYONE," replies the exasperated waiter.

"All we have is Orange Jews, Grape Jews, Prune Jews, Tomato Jews and Apple Jews, but no Mexican Jews."

[www.keralites.net] Nitish Bharti, the World Renowned Sand Artist [1 Attachment]

video 





Subject: Fwd: Nitish Bharti, the World Renowned Sand Artist
I don't know how many of you have heard of or seen the videos of the amazing art work of world-famous Indian "sand animation artist," Nitish Bharti. He is not only an artist but he is also a story teller, so to speak. He tells stories vis his art work. He tells stories by creating art work by using just his fingers – no tools! Millions of people all over the world, including USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Vietnam, Cambodia and just about everywhere else have watched the videos of his artwork. Nitish has also been on a number of TV shows, including "India Has Got Talent."
 
Ever since he was a child, he was tied to the world of art and he experimented with drawing, painting, canvassing etc. But, then he tried his hand at drawing in the sand he got "addicted" to sand art! After some time, he figured that there was no better medium than sand to tell his stories in a creative way.
 
In his words he puts it this way "As a child, I was mesmerized by sand and used to draw on pictures on the sand and one day during the high tide a wave lashed and wiped everything. This fascinated me and gradually, I started drawing quickly before the wave could come and wipe off everything. I use to stand and watch until my drawing completely disappeared, realizing that everything is temporary and provisional."
 
At one time he was a "lecturer" and used to conduct classes in art work but deep inside his heart he loved art so much he decided to listen to his heart and, with full support from his mother, he decided to take up sand art as his full time profession. He says art is all about communication so he uses this unique medium, if you will, to not only do art work but also to convey his message to his audience. In his presentations he uses sand, music and light as the media to portray his stories. His remarkable and amazing talent has enabled him to perform all over India and abroad. He has won the hearts of his audience by his work.
 
Through his unique artistry he communicates religious, civic, cultural, and even business messages. His art work also entertains his audiences in some ways. He makes his presentations in both English and Hindi and he always captivates his audience both with the innovative medium and his fast-paced creations. With movements of his hands and fingers and accompanied by music he transforms sand particles into stunning images that convey a visual story. Not only does his story telling via his sand art work entertain people but it also makes them emotional
 
What a uniquely gifted artist!

[www.keralites.net] Eliminate Anger

 



Suprabhatam:
Something to mull over-
for good health-
better mind-
Happiness





 
Remove Anger and Gain Peace
Do you become angry when you get your feelings hurt? What about when you're unhappy or feeling frustrated? 
Criticism is another common trigger for angry feelings. However, anger isn't something that happens to you. 
It's something you do to yourself.
Anger isn't a useful emotion. It drains your energy and damages your health. It can ruin relationships and hold you 
back from new opportunities.
Gain peace in your life with these suggestions:
1. Try counting to ten. Your mom probably told you to stop and count to ten at some point in your life, 
and moms give great advice
This strategy is distracting and gives you the mental space to come up with a better alternative.
2. Take a drink of water. Again, this will distract you from your anger and give you a few minutes to regain your composure. 
To some extent, many of us are chronically dehydrated. A little water will likely make you feel better.
3. Focus on your breathing. By focusing on your breathing, you're taking the focus off whatever is making you angry. 
A few slow, deep breaths can have a calming effect.
4. Realize that everyone has an opinion. It's pointless to get angry just because someone doesn't agree with you. 
How would you feel if others became furious every time you didn't agree with them?
5. Decide to react calmly, regardless of the situation. Having good intentions can make all the difference.

Anger is a sign of poor self-control and it's an emotion that rarely leads to a positive outcome. 
When you're angry, you're likely to make unfavorable choices.

[www.keralites.net] Having feelings doesn’t make you a ‘negative person’. It makes you human.

 





 
You don't have to be positive all the time. 

It's perfectly okay to feel 

sad, 

angry, 

annoyed, 

frustrated, 


scared, 

or anxious. 

Having feelings doesn't make you a 'negative person'. 
It makes you human.
