Michael Jackson (Mikaeel) is having a deadly lung condition!

Michael Jackson is suffering from a rare lung condition and needs to undergo an emergency transplant operation, according to a new report from bestselling biographer Ian Halperin, the force behind Love & Death: The Murder of Kurt Cobain and Stalking Britney: Under Siege With Britney Spears.

According to Ian, The King of Pop, 50, has been diagnosed with Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency, an occasionally fatal genetic condition.

“He’s had it for years but it’s gotten worse,” Ian told In Touch. “He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him.”

“The vision in his left eye is 95 percent gone.”

Sword disguised in form of snake

Cute Elephant Painting

These amazing images were made by the Elephant Artist Sri Siam at the Lamphang Elephant Camp in Thailand. It is hard to tell whether the elephants actually know what they are drawing, or that they have learned to imitate a teachers work or their caretaker is directing them how to draw. Nonetheless it is unnaturally fascinating to see them busy.

Blonde's Dieting Plan =D

A blonde was terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. “I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least 5 pounds.”

When the blonde returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds. “Why, that’s amazing!” the doctor said, “Did you follow my instructions?”

The blonde nodded. “I’ll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day.”
“From hunger, you mean?”

“No, from skipping.

Weird right? but it's true. =)

Batman to be killed off after 70 years ?!

Does Robin kill Batman?

'Batman RIP' will see "the end of Bruce Wayne as Batman", according to Grant Morrison. There are rumours that Batman will suffer a gruesome end when his sidekick Robin goes over to "the dark side" and destroys him in a terrible betrayal.

Batman, alter ego of Bruce Wayne a wealthy industrialist, operates in the American Gotham City.Others speculate that Wayne may either retire from his duties or be killed by a mystery villain known as the Black Glove. His fate will be revealed in the latest issue of DC Comic's Batman, published on 26 November.

Either way, his demise will lead to a hunt for a replacement. "What I am doing is a fate worse than death, things that no one would expect to happen to these guys at all," Mr Morrison told Comic Book Resources. Mr Morrison, the Scottish writer, has written storylines for comics including X-Men for Marvel and Superman for DC Comics. He took over writing the Batman series for DC in 2006.

Bruce Wayne has given up the Caped Crusader mantle once before. In the 'Knightfall' storyline, Batman's back was broken by villain Bane, causing Wayne to recruit Jean-Paul Valley to replace him. Mr Morrison declined to reveal who the new Batman would be, but the frontrunners include Tim Drake who has been Robin since 1991 and Dick Grayson - the original Boy Wonder. It is not the first time a superhero has met an unfortunate end in the comic world.

Last year, Captain America was killed after being shot by a sniper in New York. Superman's death in 1992 at the hands of Doomsday became the biggest selling Superman comic in history. He was later resurrected.Batman was co-created by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger for DC Comics. The character first appeared in Detective Comics in May 1939.

What is the true definition of Globalization? =D

Question: What is the true definition of Globalization?

Answer: Princess Diana's Death

Question: How come?

Answer: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whisky, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on Japanese motorcycles, treated by andoctor, using Brazilian medicines. This message is sent to you using Bill Gates’s technology, and you’re probably reading this on your computer, that use Chinese chips, and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by Pakistani lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen, and trucked to you by Mexican illegal…..

That, my friend, is Globalization!

Joaquin Phoenix Retires !

Joaquin Phoenix who turned 34 years old just yesterday, stunned Extra correspondent Jerry Penacoli with the announcement that he would be retiring from acting. The two-time Oscar nominee stated this on the red carpet at a Monday benefit for the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps, a charity founded by Paul Newman.

Phoenix said that "Two Lovers," his upcoming romantic drama with Gwyneth Paltrow and Vinessa Shaw, will be his final on-screen role. "This will be my last performance as an actor. I'm not doing films anymore... I've been through that. I've done it... I'm dead serious."

Phoenix is apparently giving up acting to pursue music, a passion of his since he learned to play guitar to play the role of Johnny Cash in 2005's "Walk the Line". According to Billboard, Phoenix is working on an album with Tim Burgess, frontman for the UK groupThe Charlatans. Burgess said, "Once he learnt guitar he found that he had quite a lot of demons inside himself that he wanted to expel through music.

Phoenix appeared at the charity event on Monday with his brother-in-law, Casey Affleck. Affleck is married to Phoenix's younger sister, Summer. In explaining his retirement decision, Phoenix said, "It's Casey's time now."

Affleck confirmed for E! Online that Phoenix is telling the truth when he says he's leaving the acting profession, saying, "I guess he's getting into music. He's putting out an album." But both Affleck and Phoenix hurried away from the cameras without elaborating.

Michael Jackson (Mikaeel) converted to Muslim

The Former King of Pop, Michael Jackson who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles. He chose Mikaeel as his Muslim name. Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah's angels. Michael Jackson is said to have rejected the name Mustafa, meaning "the chosen one". He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated

According to The Sun, the ceremony took place while Jackson, 50, was recording an album at the home of Steve Porcaro, a keyboard player who composed music on his Thriller album. The former Jackson 5 star was counselled by David Wharnsby, a Canadian songwriter, and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who have both converted.

A source said Jackson had appeared a "bit down" and added: "They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea. "An imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief."

Last year his brother, Jermaine Friday, suggested Jackson would convert having taken an interest in Islam since Friday's conversion in 1989. "When I came back from Mecca I got him a lot of books and he asked me lots of things about my religion and I told him that it's peaceful and beautiful," said Friday."He read everything and he was proud of me that I found something that would give me inner strength and peace.

"I think it is most probable that Michael will convert to Islam. "He could do so much, just like I am trying to do. Michael and I and the word of God, we could do so much."

Alhamdulillah, May Allah Bless Him. :]

Blonde Suicide Attempt ! =D

I remember back in 1995 i went over to my neighbors house. She was a blonde and for some reason she was mad at the world. She was in the bathroom and the door was locked. I said, “Come on, you know you don’t want to do this!” She said, “I damn well do wanna do this, nobody wants me alive anyway.” For some reason I actually believed her and pushed through the door. She had a rope tied to her ankles.

I asked “Aren’t you trying to hang yourself?”

“Yes, what’s your point?”

“Well, usually when people hang themselves they tie the rope around their necks”

“Yeah well, I tried that, But then I couldn’t breathe.”

Buy Fuel With Your MyKad !

Malaysians can use their MyKad to buy petrol from November.
The service will be available nationwide at all BHP, Caltex and three Shell-branded stations owned by Dialog Group Bhd. Consumers will have to open either a savings or a current account with EON Bank, which is the only bank providing payment transactions through the MyKad at the moment. This facility is similar to the debit card service, where consumers deposit an amount in their debit card account before using it.

EON Bank head of consumer banking Michael Lor said those who wanted to use the service needed to open an account with the bank while existing account holders needed to register at ePetrol kiosks. Currently, there are 250 bank customers using the service at 11 petrol stations in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur under a two-month pilot project. Local payments solution provider ePetrol Holding Sdn Bhd teamed up with EON Bank for the system.

'We are looking at attracting 30,000 users and there will be no extra charges, except for a simple RM6 registration fee,' said Lor after the launch of the cashless payment service by Bank Negara assistant governor Nor Shamsiah Yunus yesterday.

ePetrol president Ngau said they also used the pilot project to test the rebate system to prepare for the petrol subsidy programme using MyKad when the Government was ready..
'We give a 15-sen rebate per litre up to 150 litres a month as a test,' he said.

Magnet Repel Sharks!

Since 2001, SharkDefense has been working on a chemical shark repellent. According to Herrmann, he and Stroud were playing around with powerful rare-earth magnets in 2005, when he dropped one next to their shark research tank in Oak Ridge, New Jersey. The lemon and nurse sharks inside instantly darted to the opposite wall.

In testing at the Bimini Biological Research Station shark lab in the Bahamas, Stroud and Herrmann have found that sharks dramatically avoid magnets made from neodymium, iron and boron. The magnets even rouse sharks from tonic immobility, a coma-like state induced by turning them upside down.

A lemon shark is instantly repelled by Ocean Magnetics' unnamed "mystery metal," even when the metal is hidden behind a plastic barrier.

Herrmann says he and Stroud think the magnets overload a shark's ampullae of Lorenzini, small vesicles and pores around the head that form part of a subcutaneous sensory network. What's more, he says a metal with similar electropositive qualities also appears to affect sharks the same way. Hermann preferred to keep the identity of that metal secret for now.

A line of magnets (underneath the black line in the center) keeps a group of juvenile lemon sharks on one side of a test tank.

Divers and swimmers may thrill to the idea of shark safeguards. However, before you rush out to buy neodymium magnets to create your own shark-repelling gear, Herrmann cautions that the magnets appear to have an effective range of only 10 inches. Also, you'd need to align the magnetic poles outward and keep the magnets from clicking together, and once you had the necessary 10 to 20 pounds of magnets all over your body, you'd sink. So, at a cost of about $5 a magnet, you could

A lemon shark with tonic immobility (a comatose state induced by turning it upside-down) is roused by bringing a magnet near its head.

Michael Jackson sued by Arab sheikh in UK court

The son of an Arab monarch took the King of Pop to court Monday, charging that Michael Jackson took $7 million as an advance on an album and an autobiography that he never produced.

Lawyers for Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa say their client paid Jackson expenses as an advance on the book and joint recording project with the sheikh, who is an amateur songwriter. Jackson claims the money was a gift.

Al Khalifa, 33, was due to testify at London's Royal Courts of Justice on Wednesday. Jackson's lawyer Robert Englehart said he was seeking permission to have Jackson testify by video link from Los Angeles.

A lawyer for Al Khalifa said the royal first spoke to Jackson, 50, by telephone while the singer was on trial in California following his 2003 arrest on child molestation charges. Attorney Bankim Thanki said that Al Khalifa wanted to work with Jackson on rebuilding his career. Jackson's finances fell apart after his arrest and he was desperately short of cash.

Al Khalifa's first payment, for $35,000, went toward paying the utility bills at Neverland, Jackson's 2,500-acre (1,000 hectare) ranch and miniature amusement park in California, Thanki said. When Jackson was found innocent of the molestation charges in June 2005, Al Khalifa footed $2.2 million in legal bills, the lawyer said.

Al Khalifa said he believed the money would be repaid once Jackson's career recovered from the damaging trial.

"I saw the payment as an investment in Michael's potential," the sheikh said in a statement read out by his lawyer in court. "He said he would pay me back ... through our work together."

Al Khalifa moved Jackson and his entourage to Bahrain almost immediately after the trial, setting up a recording studio for him in Manama, the Gulf state's capital. The sheikh, who is the governor of Bahrain's Southern Province, supplied Jackson with $500,000 in cash to subsidize his lifestyle and splashed out on a $350,000 European vacation for Jackson and his associates in February of 2006, Thanki said.

"The costs even included the expenses of bringing out Mr. Jackson's hairdresser," he said.

The lawyer said Jackson and the sheikh became close friends and at one time both lived in a palace in Abu Dhabi owned by Al Khalifa's father, Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Bahrain's king. The singer stayed nearly a year in Bahrain as a guest of the son, but the relationship soured when Jackson repudiated a business deal Thanki said they had agreed to.

Jackson's lawyers say the pair never entered a valid agreement and that Al Khalifa's money was given freely.Thanki acknowledged that Al Khalifa gave some gifts to Jackson but said that most of what the singer received was part of a business deal. The gifts, he said, "were essentially personal effects — watches, jewelry."

Thanki said the sheik was wealthy but that paying Jackson's bills had taken a big bite out of his finances."Some of the payments were staggering by any standards," Thanki said, saying the expenditure "should not be regarded as loose change for my client."

As for Jackson, he still appears to be in difficult financial straits.Last week, he was forced to give up the deed on Neverland, which is named for the mythical land of Peter Pan.

The trial is being held in London because the parties had agreed to take any disputes over their deal to an English court, Al Khalifa's representatives said. The trial is due to wrap up by the end of the month.

Milo Ventimiglia as Robin??

Well, Heroes is getting close to tanking unless the third season is any good, and no Dark Knight sequel has been announced, but that can't stop a kid from dreaming, eh? Comics2Film picked up on a chat between Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia and the gossip site Showbiz Spy, in which Peter Petrelli talks about how he'd really like to put on those yellow tights. "I always thought I would make a great Robin. I would love to be Christian Bale's sidekick in Batman. Even when I was younger I never wanted to be Batman".

I'm sure Christian Bale, who has said he would refuse to come to work if Robin were introduced to the series, will be thrilled to hear that. As will Christopher Nolan, who has sworn up and down multiple times that Robin has no place in his vision of Batman's universe. It's all well and good to dream about which superhero or sidekick you'd like to play, but probably best to keep to yourself. Blabbing to a gossip site about how you want to play a role that will never, ever exist just makes you look a little silly.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen SPOILER?!

In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Isabel Lucas plays a character named Alice. TFW claims Alice is a Pretender. What is a Pretender? A pretender is a Transformer disguised as a human, in this case disguised as a very sexy human female. On the outside she’s a babe, on the inside she’s a robot which may look something like the hybrid Frenzy design from the first movie.

Here’s where it gets a little kinky. Alice has an arm which turns into an energy weapon, “a long tongue”, and a “scanning tentacle”.
