Right, before you ask…
The term Internet meme (pronounced /ˈmiːm/, rhyming with “cream”) is used to describe a concept that spreads swiftly via the Internet. The content often consists of a saying or joke, a rumor, an altered or original image, a complete website, a video clip or animation, or an offbeat news story, among many other possibilities. In simple terms, an Internet meme is an inside joke, that a large number of Internet users are in on.
Now that we’ve cleared that up, how many can you spot?

You lot have surely seen this ad by now, right? You know, the one with the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG racing through the tunnel, giving it the whole loop de loop bit? If not, I got your back. Check it:
How AWESOME is that chorrie?
If still somewhat undecided… here’s a little more to get you stockpiling lottery tickets:
Starting price? R 2 425 000. Bargain!

Now this is what I call a pool! Clearly it beats the kak out of my overpaid vinyl splash-pool hastily erected at a precarious let’s-see-how-long-till-this-FAILs angle in my garden.
First up: the background info (for those of you who considers yourselves to be “readers”):
If you fancy a dip in this pool, you’ll need a head for heights – it’s 55 storeys up.
But swimming to the edge won’t be quite as risky as it looks. While the water in the infinity pool seems to end in a sheer drop, it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. At three times the length of an Olympic pool and 650ft up, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height.
It features in the impressive, boat-shaped ‘SkyPark’ perched atop the three towers that make up the world’s most expensive hotel, the £4billion Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore.
Fascinating. Here’s what all the fuss is about:
Ja, that’ll do.
Some folks need their heads read: apparently you can now treat yourself to sushi at a cost of $2,750. “Why so pricey?” I hear my local Ocean Basket branch whine. Well, good Sirs, it’s due mainly (okay, it’s due pretty much TOTALLY) to it being covered in gold and diamonds.
Take a look:
BornRich.org described it like this:
For those rich food fanatics who like to savor the most expensive foods and delicacies known to the man, next on the list is world’s most expensive sushi made by Filipino chef Angelito Araneta Jr. What makes this plate of sushi consisting of five pieces the most expensive is not the fish, but the garnishing in gold leaves and diamonds. The sushi is garnished with .20-carat African diamonds and wrapped with 24-karat gold leaves and is available in a restaurant in Manila for $2,750.
All I can say about this is: “Why? WTF is the point of covering your chow in gold and diamonds?” Pretentious knobs, the lot of ‘em!

I’ll be sure to give this self-indulgent stuff the attention it deserves as I munch on my Marmite-on-toast I’m planning on feasting on tonight.
Jissis. Take a look at these pics of an abandoned mental asylum in New Jersey. That place would scare the kak outta you on a moonlit night.
The institution in question is a New Jersey State Hospital located in Morristown, NJ, USA, and was built in the 1870’s. Known as Greystone Psychiatric Hospital it’s probably safe to assume that the very next day it was considered by all who passed by to be ‘as scary as f@ck!’

These pics are taken from Forbidden Places. Head over for a look and to see even more pics of the place. There is also a detailed description of the tour these brave souls did in the building to snap these pictures, along with a video clip with the “New jocks please” caption: “The wind blowing the gossamer curtain in the operation room made for a ghostly sight.” Ya think?
How they ever managed to get out to tell their tale before the ghosts got them is anyone’s guess.
