Orbital Inn

Just when we thought we had seen the heights of Aviation technology when Airbus presented their prposed design for aircraft travel in their futuristic transparent planes, a bunch of Russian engineers and Russian-based company Orbital Technology go a tiny step further by presenting their proposal for a four-room zero-gravity 'Hotel in the Heavens' located at the cross roads of yes and no joke.
No seriously, it is. And you could very well be on it. That is ofcourse, provided you have a cool $984,000 lying around.
Located hundreds of miles above the planet's surface, the hotel will essentially be aimed at very* wealthy individuals and people working for private companies wanting to do research in space.
Guests will orbit planet Earth once every 90 minutes whilst enjoying 16 sunsets and 16 sunrises!

The Shane Warne/Ken/Wax transformation saga

We're just never going to escape these bogans, are we? The Shane Warne soap opera will just keep playing in a media outlet near you. Meanwhile, the world economy is going to hell in a hand basket, we have unprecedented political upheaval across the Middle East, the US is heading southwards as a superpower, millions are starving around the globe etc etc. But "our boy" Shane, newly slimmed down and rearing to go, is heading to the altar with a c-grade celebrity who must be as thick as him and equally desperate for some publicity. I'll give their marriage 12 months, or untill Warnie finds his phone again - whichever comes first hahaha
