  1. Every 80s or 90s kid has seen at least one Star Wars movie if not the entire series, which although consists of a lot of chapters, is worth a session of binge-watching (other than 'Solo', do NOT watch 'Solo'). Other than the fact that the series introduced us to one of the most iconic bad guys in Darth Vader and the wisest philosopher and master period, in Yoda, the elaborate lightsaber duels between the good and the evil was a primary reason for the geeks and nerds to stay up all night in long lines just to buy the movie tickets to the George Lucas classics. The whole concept of energy swords used for melee combats or for deflecting blaster bolts has been timeless and is one of the ideal weapons to have during the time of an apocalypse (personal choice). © AP Anyhow, it appears as if the Frenchmen responsible for sports in the country are bigger Star War geeks than the rest of the world took them to be. A nation of sword-fighting and fencing fans, France has officially recognised lightsaber dueling as a real sport. Believe it or not, the French Fencing Federation took this decision to encourage the younger generation to participate in the game instead of staying glued to their mobile phones and video game consoles. © AP “With young people today, it's a real public health issue,” federation secretary general Serge Aubailly told AP. “They don't do any sport and only exercise with their thumbs. It's becoming difficult to (persuade them to) do a sport that has no connection with getting out of the sofa and playing with one's thumbs.” Here are the two basic rules of lightsaber dueling: Rule 1: Before each blow, the lightsaber's tip must be brought backwards. Rule 2: Fighters have the option of waving the whole lightsaber, from tip to hilt, behind them or to their sides. That's not all. The Jedi-Sith dueling inspired 'sport' can soon make an appearance at the Olympics in the coming years as well. © AP ”We wanted it to be safe, we wanted it to be umpired and, most of all, we wanted it to produce something visual that looks like the movies, because that is what people expect,” tournament organiser Michel Ortiz told AP in Paris. Get your passports ready guys. Time to move to France. May the Force be with you.
  2. It's been a while since I've used a beautiful windows laptop and I got the opportunity to test out HP's latest x360 Convertible laptop. The laptop is a combination of productivity and good looks that cannot be matched by any other laptop right now. When you use the laptop in public, it sure is a head turner. However, the laptop is not only about the looks as it performs well in carrying out tasks, editing images and can even double up as a tablet. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This versatility makes this one of the best Windows laptops I've ever used. Bear in mind that this laptop is not meant for gaming and is more for daily use such as video consumption, editing images/videos and listening to music. Let's find out how the laptop fared during the course of our review: Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla To call this laptop beautiful is an understatement. It looks more stylish than its previous model and the entire chassis is made of aluminium. HP calls it the 'gem cut' as it has angled edges which represents a diamond. The 'Dark Ash Grey' variant looks absolutely stunning with a gold rose finish that gives the laptop a modern look. The design itself also incorporates functionality as you can use it various positions i.e. as a laptop, a tablet, as a tent or in reverse mode. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The laptop is 14mm thin and weighs only 1.31 kg. It's comfortable to carry in your bag and adds to the factor of portability. The power button is also discreetly hidden in the left angled corner with blends in with the overall design of the laptop. The other angled corner houses a USB-C port which can be used for charging and doesn't get in the way of other ports. As the HP x360 has a brand new chassis, it has more room for extra ports such as a slot for microSD, a USB 3 Type A, and extra USB-C port and and audio jack. Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Spectre x360 comes with 13.3-inch UHD WLED IPS panel and is perfect for watching 4K content. The colour representation is accurate and the viewing angles are also up the mark. This laptop also comes with HP Sure View which basically blocks your display from prying eyes. You need to be directly in front of the laptop to see the content which is a handy feature to have in a busy environment. Having said that, the display is also a touchscreen which made it very reflective especially if you use it against the light. Sometimes we found it hard to even read our own text documents due to harsh reflections. Since this is a touchscreen panel with Corning Glass NBT, you will often find yourself cleaning your own fingerprints after using it in tablet mode. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The touchscreen, on the other hand, was quite intuitive and was accurate enough to quick launch applications and take noted with the supplied digital pen. You can always use the laptop in tablet mode by simply folding it back all the way. The hinges on the screen look sturdy and look like it can take enough abuse to last longer than its predecessors. Keyboard The keyboard on the HP Spectre x360 is a dream to use as it has comfortable keystrokes and has a satisfying sound. The keys also provide a 1.4mm key travel which is perfect for typing long documents and also this review. The one thing we didn't like were the three backlit modes for the keyboard as we would have loved to adjust it according to our own preference. The three modes are basically bright, medium bright and off which is not ideal for different room conditions. Security We've already mentioned by HP Sure View that blocks content from prying eyes, however, the HP x360 also has additional security measures such as a fingering scanner and Windows Hello. The fingerprint scanner was very accurate and fast at unlocking the laptop as 'Windows Hello' was not as reliable. Performance The HP Spectre x360 runs on Intel's latest quad-core Whiskey Lake processor that has been made specifically for productivity, video conferencing, web browsing and video streaming. The processor has a base frequency of 1.8 GHz and is more than enough for performing photo editing on Photoshop. Having said that, we would suggest you don't run any other application in the background as it can get quite heavy for the processor to handle the extra load. In terms of memory, the laptop comes with 16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM and cannot be upgraded if you wanted to. Internal storage is also quite impressive as it comes with a 1TB PCIe NVMe TLC SSD. For reference, the laptop got a respectable score of 3,846 in our PCMark 10 test which comes close to the performance of the XPS 13. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Probably our favourite feature of the HP Spectre x360 is the battery life. When using moderately, the laptop is capable of lasting over 20 hours however when using it for productivity and consuming content at the same time, the battery life would fall down to 14 hours. It still manages to last longer than other laptops with a similar configuration thanks to its 4-cell, 61 Wh Li-ion polymer battery. Audio Quality © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We normally don't talk about speakers in a laptop that much however there is something special going on with the HP Spectre x360. It has quad speakers that have been tuned by Bang & Olufsen. There are two speakers on the keyboard deck and two underneath giving it a very crystal clear sound. Having said that, the speakers are ideal for watching movies but you will notice the lack of bass when listening to music. The speakers on the laptop are placed in a manner that you can use them in any orientation i.e. tablet, laptop or in the tent position. This ensures that sound remains uniform in no matter which orientation you plan to use the laptop. The Final Say We used the laptop for a few weeks and we can easily say it's the most beautiful laptop we've ever used. It comes in three configuration where the starting price is Rs 1,39,990. It looks sexy and offers privacy protocols like the HP Sure View. The long battery life is definitely a winner for people who plan to use the HP Spectre x360 on the move. If you are currently looking for a premium Windows laptop, you cannot ignore the HP Spectre x360.
  3. 2018 legit belonged to Ayushmann Khurrana in terms of critical as well as commercial success. His younger brother, Aparshakti, also is just as talented and is slowly but steadily carving his own niche in Bollywood as well, which is purely performance oriented - something both the brothers are pros at. When it comes to fashion as well, they are the most stylish siblings around, who are not afraid to experiment with unusual silhouettes and colour palettes. They just proved it yet again at the Filmfare Glamour And Style Awards by wearing shoes that are legit the most glittery and sparkly shoes we have ever seen. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Just look at them! While Ayushmann wore a bejewelled pair in teal, Aparshakti stunned with a pair of charcoal grey shoes that has the sparkle of a rhinestone studded surface. Let's just say these babies shined brighter than their performances combined! © Viral Bhayani When it comes to their outfits as well, they didn't hold back. Ayushmann dazzled in a silver striped Amit Aggarwal creation, while Aparshakti kept it classy with a Shantanu and Nikhil ensemble. © Instagram/ishabhansali © Instagram/aparshakti_khurana Now, that is what you call a 'well-rounded performance'. Well done, bros!
  4. Elon Musk and Mars - the only constant love story we have in our lives. Elon has never shied away from expressing his love for the red planet and his hopes of one day managing to go and live there. We all thought this was a one-sided love story, but we couldn't have been more wrong. Mars also loves Elon back! Both of them have been flirting on Instagram and all I want to say is we finally will get a happy ending in this love story, that too just in time for Valentine's Day. It couldn't have been more perfect, tbh. It all started with Mars rejecting someone because it just wants Elon, of course. I don't want you. Only Elon. https://t.co/NKxpkQQRyf — Mars (@4thFromOurStar) February 8, 2019 Well, we all know Elon's answer to this. I want you too baby https://t.co/Lxi0LQz5rc — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 8, 2019 And thus, a romance blossomed. Then, Mars got right down to business and asked him to come over. Bold move, but it's required. When are you coming over babe? https://t.co/Vw8zjksfWi — Mars (@4thFromOurStar) February 8, 2019 Elon decided to play a little hard to get and asked for some 'hot pics'. Send me hot pics & I'll be right over ð https://t.co/ld2VDbF0Wh — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 9, 2019 How could Mars say no to that? The kiss emoji adds a good touch. ð pic.twitter.com/PvM6Odf19y — Mars (@4thFromOurStar) February 9, 2019 Is that a no nut November joke, Elon? ð thank goodness it's not November https://t.co/ius8kAptiC — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 9, 2019 For real? Kinda does make me wanna ð¥ tbh — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 11, 2019 Okay, so what we've learned right now from this interaction - Elon and Mars like each other, they exchange 'hot pics', and the 'hot pic' makes Elon nut. What an educational day we've had! While everything is good, Pornhub offered him some help with the last part. May I assist you? — Pornhub ARIA (@Pornhub) February 11, 2019
  5. While the career of an athlete looks splendid with multiple multi-million-dollar deals coming from giants like Nike and Adidas every year and various clubs going out of their way to offer expensive contracts to entice them to play in their uniform. Expensive cars, big bungalows, world tours, a successful professional sportsperson has it all. But unfathomable things can also happen in a sportsman's life that can take all that away in a second and bring a wave of unnerving terror along with them. Here below are 4 of the worst and most gruesome injuries to ever happen to an athlete: Disclaimer: videos listed below contain graphic content 1. Clint Malarchuk's Throat Sliced By Ice Hockey Blades If you search for Clint Malarchuk's name on the internet, the first 50 pages will only talk about what is considered to be the most horrific injury suffered by an ice hockey player ever. In 1989, in a game between St. Louis Blues and Buffalo Sabres, the right side of the throat of goalie Clint Malarchuk was accidentally sliced open by Steve Tuttle's skate blade. As the white ice ring turned red with the player's blood, he walked out on his legs as he didn't want his mother to watch him die, as reported by the player himself. View this post on Instagram Potresna prica Clinta Malarchuka, golmana u hokeju na ledu, koji je umalo iskrvario usred utakmice 1989.g. Sve se odigralo nakon sto ga je protivnicki igrac slucajno zahvatio klizaljkom po vratu. "Kada sam shvatio da bih mogao umrijeti, prva misao mi je bila : "Silazi s leda, idi kroz vrata i skloni se od kamera." Tako da mi majka ne bi morala gledati kako umirem." #icehockey #goaltender #clintmalarchuk #neardeathexperience A post shared by PametnaInteligentaSpretnaBica (@pametnainteligentnaspretnabica) on May 28, 2018 at 9:49am PDT It took around 300 stitches and a series of PTSD sessions for Malarchuk to get over the incident. 2. Peter Biaksangzuala's Neck-Breaking Celebration After A Goal 23-year-old Peter Biaksangzuala from Mizoram, was an extremely talented footballer “who dreamt of playing in the national league," said Lalnghinglova Hmar, the Mizoram Football Association's (MFA) secretary. In a match between Bethlehem Vengthland and Chanmari West, Biaksangzuala scored a brilliant goal on a volley without giving even a second to the opposing keeper to react. Sadly, the young star let excitement get the better of him as he tried to celebrate with a somersault. Unable to complete the turn, Peter landed awkwardly on his neck while breaking it. Unfortunately, Peter was not as lucky as Clint Malarchuk and succumbed to his injuries a week later at the Aizawl Civil Hospital. 3. Phillip Hughes' Head Hit By A Bouncer Probably the most infamous incident on the list, Phillip Hughes' ill-fated injury was covered and mourned over by the entire world. On 25th November 2014, even though he was wearing a helmet, Phil Hughes suffered a blow just under his left ear which was unprotected. After visibly being shaken for a couple of seconds, Hughes collapsed on the pitch before being rushed to the hospital. After being placed under induced coma, Hughes died three days later on 27th December 2014, just three days before his 26th birthday. 4. Salim Sdiri's Punctured Liver And Kidney By A Javelin During the 2007 IAAF Golden League at Rome's Olimpico Stadium, javelin thrower Tero Kristian Pitkämäki, while warming up before the contest, accidentally slipped while throwing. As a result, the projectile went out of the field and right in the scapula of France's Salim Sdiri, puncturing his liver and right kidney. Luckily, the injuries weren't fatal and Sdiri made a successful return to the field in 2008 and was even selected for the 2009 World Championships in Berlin.
  6. One Love. Who would have thought a simple phrase such as this one could hold such depth of meaning? Yet, it also finds resonance in the iconic Bob Marley song by the same name. If you don't happen to remember the lyrics to that song, you might want to go through it to understand how this universal emotion is our only hope when it comes to guiding the mankind to a better place where “one love” suffices for all. A love without judgements and reservations. One love that's selfless and where acceptance comes easy, just how it is meant to be - something Marley manages to convey so easily in not so many words. Love does not differentiate between the hearts that wants to love, and who it wants to shower that love on. Love is just the same for all of us who are willing to feel it, and give it a chance regardless of what comes in the way. (c) Meghna Sahoo Such is the story of Meghna Sahoo, a transgender woman, and her husband Basudeba Nayak who went against societal diktats and reservations, to give their love the chance it deserved. When Meghna married Basudeba in 2017, she became Odisha's first transgender woman to tie the knot. It turned into a moment of celebration for the transgender community in the state, and have them the power to hope for their own share of love in life. Meghna and Basudeba's love story began through a chance interaction on Facebook. Basudeba happened to be one of Meghna's followers of Facebook, and had found out about Meghna because of her involvement in social activism. But the possibility that she should chance upon his private messages to her, from amongst the hundreds she received regularly, is a play of fate. Recalling her first interaction with Basudeba, Meghna says that, “We had never met each other before the first time we spoke to each other of Facebook. One day when I turned on my Facebook chat after a long time, I noticed that someone named Basudeba had been messaging me everyday on Facebook. At that time he had been going through some personal issues and he was reaching out to me to seek help.” (c) BCCL This forms the premise of Meghna and Basudeba's first virtual association. She also noticed that all this time when she failed to respond to him, he would regularly drop her good morning or good night messages. For the next two years, Basudeba continued trying to speak to her at various points, but couldn't get through. Finally, when Basudeba's messages caught Meghna's attention, she responded. The messages ranged from normal greetings to even marriage proposals. At that point Meghna was already in a relationship with another guy, who said he loved her, but wouldn't make their relationship public or go out with her like regular couples do. He even had concerns that transgender women cannot become mothers and that the society wouldn't accept them. This sour experience cautioned Meghna to not take Basudeba's proposals too seriously either. However, after they began to interact more and more, she came to know about Basudeba's story. “He told me that back in 2011 his wife had eloped with her lover, leaving behind their 10-month old boy. Even after that point we would talk every now and then.” (c) Meghna Sahoo This went on for some time and then suddenly Basudeba proposed to Meghna once again for marriage. But this time Meghna didn't want to get fooled and wanted to see if Basedeba meant what said. She says, “when he proposed this time, I asked him to get his family to bring the marriage proposal to my family. But since his parents had passed away by then, he spoke to his elder brother and sister-in-law. Initially his family was against it and didn't approve of their brother getting married to a kinnar.” However, his family's concern about “log kya kahenge” didn't stop Basudeb from declaring that if he has to marry it will have to be to Meghna and no one else. “He told his family that he really liked me and wished to get married. His other concern was that another woman might mistreat his son, and he didn't want that. His other motivation was that since Meghna couldn't bear children she would be able to give his son her undivided love.” (c) OdishaTV Meghna admits that this last reason didn't hurt her as much as it should because she thought, “at least I would become a mother to a child who needs a mother's affection. Besides, this could also set an example for others to follow. Two lives got better due to this marriage - a child got a mother and a transgender woman got a loving family. Such a possibility for others could better so many lives. That is why I agreed to accept his proposal.” Even until the last moment Basudeba's family didn't give their consent to the wedding. But eventually they gave up and Basudeba and Meghna finally got married on 26th January 2017 with the blessing of both the families. Talking about her wedding day, Meghna shared that “more than ten thousand people came to attend the wedding. Many politicians, social activists and advocates came to attend the wedding even without invitation and gave us their blessings.” (c) Incredibleorissa Meghna and Basudeba just completed two years as a married couple and Meghna is living a happy married life with her husband, son and in-laws. She admits that arguments do crop up every now and then, but she and Basudeba always reach a middle ground, and work things out. However, she admits that her bond with her son is much stronger than that with her own husband. “I have bonded very well with my son and we love each other dearly. I feel I am more closer to him than my husband.” Basudeba for his part has stood by Meghna through it all and has never paid heed to society's judgements. Currently, Meghna is working with an NGO and also became first transgender woman to work with Ola as a driver. Meghna also holds an MBA in HR and Management. Meghna's lone motivation is to change the society's mindset regarding transgender community and inspire other transgenders to live their dream and build a better future for themselves without any inhibitions. Meghna's journey and story has inspired many other transgenders to turn their lives around and hope for the first time, to live their dreams and find the love of their life who would be willing to accept them for who they are and love them.
  7. The buzz around Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's upcoming film 'Gully Boy' only seems to be growing bigger and bigger as the film's release day draws closer. While Ranveer and Alia are leaving no stones unturned when it comes to the film's promotions, the film has nonetheless managed to win over fans' hearts through every other move as well. Be it the peppy rap songs, a gripping story-line or Ranveer and Alia's dialogue, 'Gully Boy' has everything going for it. View this post on Instagram â¤ð§ #GullyBoy #14thFeb @ritesh_sid @zoieakhtar @faroutakhtar @excelmovies #TigerBaby @aliaabhatt @zeemusiccompany A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 1, 2019 at 8:01pm PST However, now it seems Indians aren't the only ones who are caught in the Gully fever. It appears that Ranveer has managed to make a fan out of Grammy winning DJ Diplo as well. Diplo recently took to Twitter to share his tribute to 'Gully Boy' and Ranveer Singh, by recreating a 'Gully Boy' poster and adding a stellar "Mera time bhi aayega" in the caption. ð®ð³ मà¥à¤°à¤¾ à¤à¤¾à¤à¤® भॠà¤à¤à¤à¤¾#gullyboy pic.twitter.com/1qv82ohS8U — dip (@diplo) February 7, 2019 The reprised poster shows Diplo photoshopped into Ranveer's photo, where 'Gully Boy' has been replaced by “Random White Guy.” There is something to be said about Diplo's move, since it shows that Indian films are getting more and more attention even outside the subcontinent.

Director Zoya Akhtar decided to make a movie on the lives of such upcoming hip-hop singers and rappers in Mumbai, and that's how 'Gully Boy' came into being. View this post on Instagram #GullyBoyTrailer out in 2 days! @ritesh_sid @zoieakhtar @faroutakhtar @excelmovies #TigerBaby @aliaabhatt @zeemusiccompany A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 6, 2019 at 9:01pm PST Fans have given great reception to everything related to the movie--right from the posters, to the trailers to even the rap songs that were released around a lot of media hype! However, Diplo's tweet wins over all of their other fans' tribute to the film, wanna be or not.
  8. Elon Musk loves memes, who would've thought? He's full of surprises and everyone knows that. A couple of months ago, he asked people on Twitter to send him their dankest memes and everyone came through, well kinda. People took the opportunity to basically troll him and that was also fun. And, how can we forget Elon becoming one of the biggest memes of 2018 when he smoked a joint during a podcast. And now, finally, it looks like it's his turn to be the one roasting or just maybe reviewing memes. Yep, our favourite billionaire tweeted about wanting to host 'Meme Review', a show run by PewDie Pie. He took some help from his famous - or infamous? - flamethrower and tweeted this. Host meme review? pic.twitter.com/k2SFtIUh1k — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 A collab by Elon Musk and PewDiePie is something we never knew we wanted, but sure as hell need. Obviously, everyone is trying their best to make it happen. $5 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 You drive a hard bargain, but … ok — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 27, 2019 Thank you for your contribution, Tesla is now the official car of the meme community.

What a time to be alive! — Jacksepticeye (@Jack_Septic_Eye) January 28, 2019 But, the most important reply came from Pewds himself, of course. â dont shoot please host ð we need this! https://t.co/6l66JTw7Vq — ƿ૯ωá«É¿à«¯Æ¿É¿à«¯ (@pewdiepie) January 27, 2019 He even went as far as making a video reacting to this.

We're desperate. — daniel (@DanielSambar) January 27, 2019 We're in the best timeline. What a time to be alive. — TheFatRat (@ThisIsTheFatRat) January 28, 2019 Everyone's invested, literally. I will invest in Tesla stock if you do. — Joey (@TheAn1meMan) January 28, 2019 Please help. Dear Elon, Meme review will only take 10 minutes of your time. LWIAY will only ask for 5. An interview with Gloria Borger on PewNews 20. That is a total of 35 minutes of your undivided attention. Mars can wait. Global warming can wait. PewDiePie cant. Help your people. Thank you. — Jay Lit (@officialjaylit) January 27, 2019 The best timeline. It's easy to let the war, famine, and widespread sadness confuse us. But this post reminds us that we're in a blessed timeline — Michael Reeves (@michaelreeves08) January 27, 2019 Someone really needs to make this happen, we do need this collaboration in our lives.
  9. While everyone is sharing their #10YearChallenge pictures, Ranveer Singh posted a video that marks the first anniversary of 'Padmaavat'. While it was already established that despite his raw savagery, Allauddin Khilji is the most fashionable and charming anti-hero ever, this throwback just put the cherry on the cake. (c) YouTube When Allauddin danced to 'Khalibali', we already were shook, but when he did an epic lip-sync to the super-famous party track 'Makeba' in full make-up, accessories, and outfit, it showed that a true-blue fashionable rockstar resides inside the actor, who'll perhaps will take over in the super anticipated 'Gully Boy'. (c) Instagram/Ranveersingh We were blown over by the huge rings and the necklace, along with the kohl-laden eyes doing this sick AF rendition of Makeba, but the reckless abandonment with which he did it just nails it. We could watch it all day! Watch the video here. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 25, 2019 at 4:54am PST Who wants to see Khilji rapping 'Apna Time Aayega?'
  10. Just when we think Ranveer Singh's style game can't get edgier, the man comes up with something even crazier to knock our socks off. This has been going on for years, and we honestly have no idea how he still manages to make fashion headlines consistently with his clothes and shoes. Ranveer Singh's crazy and weird outfits never fail to impress us, and he proved it yet again at the music launch of 'Gully Boy'. © Viral Bhayani Now, you'd think that neon and silver extravaganza by Nought One in itself is more than capable of creating a statement, and you're not wrong. © Viral Bhayani But, then you'd look at his shoes and change your mind, because those babies are the real fashion beasts. © Viral Bhayani Ranveer is wearing a pair of Adidas Originals sneakers called the 'Shark' that are designed by the OG quirkmaster Jeremy Scott. © Highsnobiety © Highsnobiety Possibly one of the craziest sneakers ever, this pair is inspired by classic cars, and features shark tail fins, along with LED 'brake lights'. They cost about Rs 20K (which is surprisingly inexpensive, considering the kind of statement shoes they are.) © Highsnobiety © Highsnobiety © Sneakerbardetroit Ranveer Singh's shoes have been eclectic and flamboyant in the past (let's just call it his regular aesthetic), but this pair holds it own in front of every other pair. Talk about making a statement in front of a crowd effortlessly! Take a bow, Baba!
  11. Just get two famous people in a picture together and boom, potential meme material. If it's an awkward moment, then that's an added bonus. That's what happened when Parineeti Chopra posted the picture of her meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. An honour yesterday ð @narendramodi pic.twitter.com/YIYjGR2XM2 — Parineeti Chopra (@ParineetiChopra) January 20, 2019 Notice the awkwardness? PM Modi is ready to shake her hand but no, she's being respectful - and disrespectful, kind - and just sticks to the traditional namaste. The intentions were obviously not bad, but the result is still hilarious. The first thing that came to my mind after seeing this picture was this - © Twitter Same energy, right? The probably ill-timed picture was asking to be trolled and everyone came through, like always. From PM Modi to Parineeti herself, no one was spared. Parineeti : Sorry I don't shake hands with Delhiites Modi : Main toh Gujarat se hun originally pic.twitter.com/pbmei9MThR — Bollywood Gandu (@BollywoodGandu) January 20, 2019 Actually, it wasn't just limited to those two. Shetty be like : haath majboot hain Modiji aapke ; khatron ke Khiladi mn aaoge kya ðð — ð®ð³ (@_k___77) January 20, 2019 Badshah looks like he just made a song in his head — Akshar | اÙشار (@akshaaaaar) January 20, 2019 But, the main trolling came from the comments on Instagram when Parineeti posted the picture and almost all of them were directed at PM Modi. Unclezoned? Still waiting for the ache din. So awkward! 'Oh no, you did not' is the correct response. Sanskari AF.
  12. Resident Evil, the long-standing horror franchise that has captured every fan's imagination recently came out with a remaster of one of its classic games. We played a demo of the game at Gamescom and it already looked fascinating back then. Resident Evil 2 was originally released in 1998 and was about the fall of Raccoon City. It had iconic villains and characters that made it one of the most renowned Horror games in history. © Capcom Now exactly 20 years later, the game has been remastered by Capcom with updated graphics, an updated story and better gameplay mechanics. In essence, the game was coded from the ground up and is probably the best-remastered games we've ever played. In fact, the game follows the same formulas as the 1998 classic game and is unapologetic about it. In the game, you will either be playing as Leon Kennedy (cop) or Claire Redfield (college student in search of his brother) and follow different story arcs in the zombie-infested Raccoon City. © Capcom Resident Evil 2 is a third person, an over-the-shoulder shooter that still has the same claustrophobic feeling you would get from the original game. This oppressive feeling would add to the anxiety when you are trying to fight off zombies in tricky areas and even in open hallways. The over-the-shoulder play is tweaked to perfection here, as it instils gut-wrenching horror in every step you take. The environment itself its filled with tension that adds to the visceral and morbid world of Resident Evil. There's darkness in every corner and your flashlight is the only thing keeping you safe until you get jumped on by a zombie. The scare is real where you have to tackle jump scares while traversing different areas in the game. The audio design is also top notch as moans and shrieks added extra tension in moments of silence. Tackling zombies also need to strategic in certain scenarios as you can either blow their face off or blow up a limb to slow them down. This is by the scariest Resident Evil game we've played yet and it's great that the franchise embraces everything that made it successful in the first place. The story in Resident Evil 2 is identical to what the original game with a few more cutscenes and new locations that add to the narrative. You won't see any cringe-worthy lines or dumb quotes that took away the seriousness in older Resident Evil games. A lot of the game takes place in the massive police station where you will have to unlock new areas by hunting objects and combining them to open areas. Just like the original, this game does not have an autosave feature which means you still need to find a typewriter in order to save progress. The voice acting also adds to key character moments as it accentuates the modern cinematic style. Performances by voice actors were up to the mark that added some weight to scary or emotional moments. © Capcom For the first time in a game, I was genuinely scared because of an NPC that would show up or stalk you at any given time in the game. The enemy is called “Tyrant” and it will show up every few hours that would eventually skyrocket the intensity and stroll levels of the game. Once you encounter the enemy, you will be more careful where you go and have to be attentive of every door you open. You can't even kill the damn thing so shooting at it is pointless. © Capcom Sound design also plays a crucial role when it comes to horror games and Resident Evil 2 delivers the perfect experience in that department. It's probably one of the reasons why Tyrant sounds scarier than anything else in the game. You will hear its footsteps echo in your environment even though it's not on the same floor as you. The incredible sound design basically got me anxious each time I opened a door. You will be travelling with genuine fear simply because of these mysterious sounds. When it comes to gameplay, the new over-the-shoulder perspective works extremely smooth and you can control both Leon and Claire without any issues. Both characters have unique weapons and gadgets that you will use whole tackling enemies. There are also puzzles like the original game that you will need to solve and they aren't overly difficult or simple either. Resident Evil 2 is all about survival and where staying alive is as important as having the ability to shoot zombies, It isn't fast paced like modern zombie games where you will shoot everything in sight. Each move, path and shot has to be calculated otherwise you will end up dead. © Capcom In fact, when you are done with your first play-through, we encourage you to play the game again with a different character (either Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield) as the campaign offers different scenarios for each character. You will have similar objectives, visit the same locations but a lot of the campaign is different. You'll even unlock The 4th Survivor where you will play a small side story with its own story and rewards. Overall, the game has more replay value than any other horror game we've ever come across. Verdict Resident Evil 2 gives you the extra replay value you expect from a game as you would expect it from games from the 90s. It's got an exceptional sound design, great environments and overall a very scary experience. Even if you have played the original Resident Evil 2, you really don't want to miss out on the remastered version. It's a whole new game that hasn't forgotten its roots and is arguably the greatest survival horror game very made. You simply can't ignore this one.
  13. 'How's the josh?' - the most quotable dialogue right now. This one line has become so huge that even our Prime Minister couldn't help but say it. Yep, while addressing a gathering of Hindi film actors, directors and other influencers after the inauguration of National Museum of Indian Cinema on Saturday in Mumbai, PM Modi said, “How's the josh?”. #WATCH: PM Modi asks "How's the josh?" at the inauguration of National Museum of Indian Cinema in Mumbai. The audience responds with "High Sir" pic.twitter.com/Da3y1xUiuP — ANI (@ANI) January 19, 2019 That was met with a lot of applause, of course, and some people shouting back “High sir”; and they included actors Aamir Khan and Kangana Ranaut, directors Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty and Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Prasoon Joshi. PM Modi is just like us, he's a Vicky Kaushal fanboy, pass it on. Moreover, looks like the feelings are mutual, as Vicky himself tweeted this video talking about what an honour it is. What an honour! ðð®ð³ https://t.co/kR3qyuz3jn — Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) January 19, 2019 Everyone loved this crossover, obviously.

  14. When stories of the wars fought in human history started turning stale, film-makers decided to turn some real, some fictional accounts into unforgettable films. War films have inspired us, somehow made us more patriotic and even changed our perception towards those who suffered. War films transport us to an era that we have never witnessed; however, by the means of great storytelling, one can feel the terror of the bombings, the pain of the Holocaust and the joy of victories. In this post, we have listed the greatest war films that have ever been made: 1. Saving Private Ryan (1998) Steven Spielberg's esteemed project that bagged a gigantic five Academy Awards win is at the top of our list. 'Saving Private Ryan' is one of the most realistic war films ever made. The film is set up at the backdrop of Normandy invasion during World War II and the combat scenes of the D Day are one of the most expensive war scenes that have ever been shot in a war film. In the movie, Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) is on a mission to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), who happens to be the only surviving brother of the four brothers killed in the war. The film chronicles the journey of war heroes and how bravely they fight the bloodiest battle in human history. 'Saving Private Ryan' fills you with deep emotions, shakes you to the core and gives you a clear glimpse of what a war looks like. 2. Dunkirk (2017) Though Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' snub at the 2018 Oscars jolted many, his World War II drama inspired by the 1940 evacuation of allied soldiers from the beaches of Dunkirk proved that Nolan is the master of all genres. When you see 'Dunkirk' you forget everything that is going around in the world outside the film. Shot on a large format film and released in 70mm projection, 'Dunkirk' instantly takes you to the war era and effortlessly makes you a part of it. While you tear up at the end, you do not only see the film as a mere spectator but as a witness, in a hope that the soldiers would see their way to home. When the war genre got almost saturated with run-of-the-mill-storytelling, Nolan breathed a fresh air by making 'Dunkirk' a masterpiece. 3. The Pianist (2002) Roman Polanski is now bereft of all the Oscars he earned in his entire lifetime, except the one he got for directing 'The Pianist'. The World War II drama based on the struggle and survival of Polish Jew musician Wladyslaw at the peak of the war is a powerful story of human resilience. Based on the autobiography of Wladyslaw Szpilman, the film pertinently narrates the horrors of the Holocaust. Adrien Broody's stint in the film got him huge critical acclaim ultimately making him the youngest Academy Award recipient in the Best Actor category. 'The Pianist' by all means is a simple yet pre-eminent depiction of a survivor's journey and how he manages to escape the Holocaust on the basis of his will to live. 4. Schindler's List (1993) In November 2018, Steven Spielberg's pièce de résistance 'Schindler's List' marked its 25th anniversary. Based on the world famous story of Oskar Schindler who saved twelve hundred Jews during the time of the Holocaust, the film bagged the Academy Award for Best Picture and also happened to be Liam Neeson's career-transforming performance. The film's black and white tone and a 72 days filming remained in talks for a long time. The film is also a cinematic marvel of its time and has remained one of the most accurate and heartbreaking films about the war. 5. Apocalypse Now (1979) Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War drama has got the war madness in it. Starring Marlon Brando, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest, Albert Hall, Sam Bottoms, Laurence Fishburne, and Dennis Hopper, the film is a sheer delight for war film aficionados. 'Apocalypse Now' is well-documented, hellish, and puts forth an epic saga. The film represents the brutalities of war with precision and with time the significance of the film has only increased. 'Apocalypse Now' somehow overpowers other war Vietnam War films including 'The Deer Hunter' and 'Platoon'. 6. The Deer Hunter (1978) Michael Cimino's valuable project took more time for completion and therefore the film turned out to be a three-hour long story. Starring Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Christopher Walken, John Savage, George Dzundza and John Cazale (in his final role), 'The Deer Hunter' is a story of three friends who went on to fight in the Vietnam War. This is one film that truly belongs to its actors. It has been pronounced culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant by the United States National Film Registry and went on to win five Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture. 'The Deer Hunter' is a gripping tale, one that can't be forgotten and aptly depicts the monstrosities of the Vietnam War. 7. Lawrence of Arabia (1962) Amidst a good range of films based on World War II, there exists one of the finest classics of all time. 'Lawrence of Arabia' is not only a World War I movie but one of the greatest films that have ever been made. Directed by David Lean, this is an epic historical drama film based on the life of T. E. Lawrence and chronicles his journey in the Arabian Peninsula during World War I. The film went on to win a total of seven Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture and Best Director. The film also gave Peter O'Toole an international recognition for his portrayal of T.E. Lawrence. 8. Platoon (1986) Oliver Stone's ambitious anti-war project starring Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen, Keith David, Kevin Dillion, John C. McGinley, Forest Whitaker, and Johnny Depp, is based on Stone's own experiences during the Vietnam War. The film earned Oliver Stone an Academy Award for Best Director and also huge critical acclaim for brilliantly writing his own story and ultimately turning it into a movie. The reality behind the film's very existence attracted large crowds to the theatres; people were moved to the core after witnessing how brilliantly the story unfolded. The achievement of 'Platoon' is seen to be of much greater value when seen in terms of the best Vietnam War films that have ever been made. 9. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) In 1958, 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' swept seven Academy Awards including the one for Best Picture. Directed by David Lean, the film is a British-American war drama based on the novel Le Pont de la Rivière Kwaï (1952) written by Pierre Boulle. Actors William Holden, Jack Hawkins, Alec Guinness, and Sessue Hayakawa worked on the historic construction of the Burman Railways. When war heroes built a bridge across the Kwai River, a never seen before story certainly got the world's attention. The film chronicles a valiant tale and keeps power to move the viewers. The movie also became the 11th greatest British film of the 20th Century as per the British Film Institute. 10. Full Metal Jacket (1987) The last film in our list is a Stanley Kubrick production. 'Full Metal Jacket' narrates the journey of two privates of the U.S. Marine during the Vietnam War. The film depicts how under hard-bitten conditions, Joker (Matthew Modine ) and Pyle (Vincent D'Onofrio ) struggle to get through the boot camp, especially when they are met by an abusive drill instructor (R. Lee Ermey). The film received huge critical acclaim and also received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
  15. There was a time when Public Display of Affection (PDA) was frowned upon and lovers on the streets or at a public place were asked to go 'get a room' instead. But welcome to the growing gene-pool of adventure seekers and love tolerant people around, PDA is very much back in action and everyone wants to be a part of it. PDA officially means showing your affection publicly towards the person you're involved with. Could be your spouse, girlfriend or a date you're on. Snogging their world off, while you're in a crowd definitely qualifies for PDA and up until recently, it wasn't so welcoming in the society. © Twitter What changed though? Our most probable guess is the celebrity couple hangover that influences the general public threefold. Off late, we've been seeing various celebrity couples holding hands, hugging each other or proclaiming their love for one another in public and this trend is becoming more popular by the day. Which makes us wonder, what is actually wrong with displaying a bit of affection before people? It's certainly better than displaying any amount of violence, or public display of arrogance or even contempt for that matter, between couples who're out in public. So, if we love instead of all that negativity, it's always easier to digest. © Pinterest So, just in case you're a brand new couple, or an old one or just out on a date and can't keep your hands off each other or want to try some PDA, maybe you can keep these basic PDA- guidelines in mind! (1) Don't Get All Touchy-Feely If You're With A Third Person If you're hanging out with someone who's third-wheeling you, then maybe you don't have to drive that point home by being all over your girlfriend. Instead, make an effort with the third friend who's come out with a couple and make him or her feel as much at home as you possibly can, by not displaying too much affection in front of them. © Pinterest (2) Avoid PDA In Front Of Kids Little ones watching you going nuts over each other, literally, is hell raising! I mean, I'm sure the kids probably understand what you're up to, but why do you have to put them through the torture of asking their parents why your hand was up her dress? Maybe a peck or a hug works but if you're surrounded by kids, definitely find a safer space for the two of you to do whatever you want to. © Pinterest (3) Not 'Handy' In The Middle Of The Dance floor While I understand the dance floor can be an intimate space to show love for one another, it's also space for people to show off their moves. So, if you're trying to climb on top of each other while dancing and making a show out of it, do it at your own peril and, of course, discretion! © Getty Images (4) Definitely Avoid Straddling Straddling is sitting with one leg on either side and if it's not a motorcycle, you're straddling on a person. But the thing is, public straddling is a bit over-the-top unless, of course, you're at a strip club or behind closed doors. So, if your girlfriend straddles you in public, maybe it's time to make sure to tell her the rules have changed a bit! © Pinterest (5) Don't Cause An Inconvenience Even if you find a decent place to display a copious amount of PDA, make sure it's not causing any form of an inconvenience to people around you. It could be inside a public loo, where you've bolted the door for minutes and are busy making out, or it could be at a place where you're blocking a path and are too busy to realise people are having an issue passing by and are too uncomfortable to tell you to move! Whatever it is, make sure you chose the space effectively and display affection as suited for the place. © Pinterest Yes, PDA can be quite tricky to pull off, mostly because it's a spontaneous decision and not planned. You can get carried away in a moment and carry forth showing a lot of affection towards your lover, but it's up to you to decide how much public display of affection is too much affection, at the end of the day! Trust me, even celebs know their limit and while I know it's very important to show as much love as you can towards someone you're fond of, it's also important to keep things easy going for the rest of the lot, around you!
  16. If you thought that Ellen DeGeneres' iconic Oscar selfie is the world's best selfie, then wait till you see Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar and Varun Dhawan and Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty and Rajkummar Rao (and the list just goes on) in one frame. On Thursday, our 'Gully Boy' Ranveer Singh and other Bollywood celebrities and filmmakers met PM Modi and to mark this epic moment, they clicked a selfie that was more epic than their meeting. Excel Entertainment Karan Johar was one of the first few celebrities to post the selfie, with the caption "Powerful and timely conversations can bring about change and this was one of what we hope will become a regular conversation. Meeting the Honorable Prime Minister @narendramodi today was an incredible opportunity." He further wrote, "As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building. There is so much that we want to do. And can do and this dialogue was towards how and what ways we can do that. When the youngest country (in demography) joins hands with the largest movie industry in the world, we hope to be a force to reckon with. Together we would love to inspire and ignite positive changes to a transformative India. The film industry would also like to send a huge thanks for the GST reduction in movie ticket prices that was implemented recently! Thank you so much for your time, Sir!"

  17. Imagine travelling to an exotic island in California, United States and staying at a beautiful lighthouse-turned-inn, sipping tea or coffee from a cup while looking at the water as the sun sets. This thought is beautiful, but it's also giving me stress as I calculate the amount of money one will have to shell out to enjoy this kind of a vacation. But, what if I tell you that you can do all of this and instead of paying for it, you will get a salary in return? And when I say salary, I mean $130,000 i.e. Rs. 91.6 lakhs (approx). If this isn't the best job on the entire f**king planet, I wonder what is. © Facebook It's not a joke! The East Brother Light Station, located in the San Pablo Bay (part of the larger San Francisco Bay) is actually looking for two caretakers for a historic lighthouse, which dates back to 1874. Don't worry, it's not a haunted house, it's actually a bed and breakfast inn, which according to the visitors serves amazing food. © Facebook So, how can you apply for the job? According to their official Facebook page, it's a job for two people, and one of those two must have a U.S. Coast Guard-issued captain's license. If you don't have it, you can't ferry passengers to and from the island, which is a part of your job profile. Other job requirements are housekeeping and serving high quality food. Btw, you also need the right to work in the United States. The current lighthouse keepers are Jillian Meeker and Che Rogers, who have been living here for two years and are now ready to pass the baton to the new keepers. The new keepers will start working in mid-April 2019, after two weeks of training. © Wikimedia The lighthouse was established to "help sailors navigate the misty waters surrounding San Francisco." In 1960s, it was automated and is now owned by the US Coast Guard and maintained by a nonprofit group, East Brother Lighthouse Inc. If you fit the bill, who will you take along with you? Your best bro or your girlfriend? Source: CNN
  18. While the last match of the Test series between India and Australia wasn't eventful as rain and bad light caused for rather disappointing Days 4 and 5 in Sydney, the Indian Cricket Team were in a comfortable spot as they forced the Aussies with a follow on in the first innings to break yet another record. The Sydney match did not deliver any conclusive results, but the 31-run win in the first Test in Adelaide and the 137-run victory in the third Test in Melbourne guaranteed Virat Kohli and the Men in Blue a 2-1 victory against Tim Paine's Test Squad. This victory in Australia has significance a lot greater than any other Test win as this is for the very first time that India have been able to win a Test series on Australian soil. Ever since Team India began to play Test matches way back in 1947, there have been 12 Test series between the two cricketing titans in Australia out of which eight were won by the Aussies and three were drawn before India finally won the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar trophy. While the majority of the team performed well, the one man behind India's successful trip Down Under was Cheteshwar Pujara who was named the Man of the Match for the fourth and final Test for scoring a massive 193-run individual score in the first innings and also the Man of the Series for his exceptional batting performance in which he scored a total of 521 runs in 7 innings. Needless to say, India took to Twitter to celebrate the grand victory and showered Kohli's boys with the well-deserved praises. Congratulations. Today, the Indian cricket team wins its first ever Test series in Australia. This is a historic achievement. We are proud of you — Mamata Banerjee (@MamataOfficial) January 7, 2019 Congratulations to @imVkohli and his team for reaching one of Indian cricket's final frontiers and winning a test series in Australia for the first time.

  19. Salman Khan has worn the same kind of clothes throughout 2018. A black/grey fitted tee, a pair of bootcut jeans (which we doubt whether anyone else still wears), and a pair of black/brown boots. The interesting thing is, despite sounding like a rather odd assortment of pieces, he managed to convert it into a legit aesthetic, and dutifully stuck to it. Naturally, when he went ahead a wore a pair of jeans which are bootcut, but looked straight out of a fashion magazine from the '80s, we couldn't help but take notice. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Now, having a few zippers and a lot of pockets was a legit 'cool' aesthetic during the '90s. Remember the cargo shorts era? But we rarely do see such flamboyance in men's lowers anymore. But well, Salman Khan sure doesn't care about what's in. In fact, if anyone would dare, it's him, and he's proved it with this particular pair. © Viral Bhayani One can actually play a 'how many zippers did you find' game with these super cool pants. Plus, look at the dope pocket detailing. If anyone wants to wear a pair of jeans to the MET Gala, perhaps this is the pair they'd want to check out? (Hey, denim can be an unbeatable element - remember the iconic AF Justin Timberlake - Britney moment?) © Viral Bhayani Btw, just for fun, we did count, and we could spot 9 zippers. Can you find more?
  20. We don't know about your travel plans, but three Indians are currently making headlines for their week-long trip that is worth a whopping 10,000 crores. via GIPHY We're not talking about a sequel of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. We're talking about ISRO's most ambitious project, Gaganyaan, whose budget just got a nod of approval by the government today. The three astronauts will be sent into space by 2022. Twitter (For Representation) Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced the same at a press conference today, "The Union Cabinet has approved the Gaganyaan project under which a three-member crew will be sent to space for at least seven days." Cabinet approves indigenous human spaceflight programme; Gaganyaan programme to carry 3 member crew for minimum 7 days in space at a total cost of Rs 10k crores. — ANI (@ANI) December 28, 2018 This is said to be India's first manned mission to space and the Rs. 10,000 crore budget includes the cost of technology development, flight hardware and essential infrastructure elements. The announcement of launching a manned mission to space by 2022, was announced on August 15, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his 72nd Independence Day speech. He also mentioned that with this project, India will become the fourth nation in the league after Russia, the United States and China.
  21. There is a very easy and obvious test to find out whether one has 'arrived' in Bollywood, when it comes to commercial success and being a 'famous face'. If you have been on the 'Koffee Couch', my friend, you have arrived. Everyone's favourite guy-next-door Kartik Aaryan had already arrived when he delivered that savage rant without flinching in 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama', but the lad just cemented his position as one of the people to look out for in Bollywood, by finally making an appearance on 'Koffee With Karan'. We have always loved how Kartik dresses, but he just made a savage statement on the show by wearing a jacket that's one for the lookbooks. © Instagram/karanjohar Kartik wore an embroidered skull zipped jacket by Mastermind Japan. The jacket is special, not only because of the statement skull pattern on the back along with the super cool graphic that says 'World Mastermind', but because of the rather, err, 'exorbitant' price tag associated with it as well. © Instagram/kartikaaryan The super edgy jacket in velvet costs a whopping 4,494 Pounds, which when converted to Indian currency comes close to Rs 4 Lakhs. Now that, is an expensive jacket, even by the standards of the Koffee couch (let's not forget how expensive all of KJo's clothes are). © Instagram/kartikaaryan We love the skull pattern on the front, as well as the lettered aesthetic at the back. Even though KJo too wore a super statement piece (again in velvet), Kartik wins this round, hands down. © Instagram/kartikaaryan Doesn't he look amazing in that ramp-ready aesthetic, replete with the sleeve details that give us a peek of the skull? We, in fact, feel he has never looked better. Perfect time to wear that jacket, we say, because it surely was a task to keep up with that golden glow Miss Kriti Sanon was radiating, thanks to that alluring outfit of hers. © Instagram/kartikaaryan Let's just say, what an entry to the coveted couch!
  22. There is a common fallacy surrounding bodybuilding that short men and bodybuilding are not well-matched. However, it has been proven wrong by many great men and successful bodybuilders like James “Flex” Lewis, Lee Priest and Franco Columbu. But in this article, we are not talking about an average short-heighted guy. We are talking about Flavio Baccianini who is the shortest Pro Bodybuilder on record to ever make it to the Mr. Olympia Stage. © Facebook He stands tall at 4 Foot and 10 inches and his on stage weight was in between 66 to 72 kilograms. It is not easy to become a Pro Bodybuilder with average height but it becomes exceptionally challenging when you are just 4'10”. © Facebook,muscletime Flavio has seen many ups and downs in his bodybuilding career and, at one point, he even said that bodybuilding is a waste of time in an interview. The odds were not in his favor and there was nothing that he can do about his height. But beating all the challenges and overcoming all the obstacles, Flavio made his debut in the European Championships WABBA and stood 3rd in the competition. In 1983, he won the world championships of WABBA and then shifted to IFBB in 1988. He participated in many events in the IFBB but his best achievement was coming second in Olympia – Masters IFBB in 1999. © Facebook Even though he was not able to get a podium finish, he got the attention of the entire bodybuilding community when he posed with Lou Ferrigno. © Facebook Lou was 6 ft and 5 inches and was considered one of the tallest bodybuilders at the time. His on stage weight was 137 kilogram which is more than twice of Flavio. Lou and Flavio were great friends which is evident from the photos of the 1999 Masters Olympia where Lou was captured choking Flavio with his giant biceps. Flavio placed 13th in this competition beating 10 guys. But unfortunately, Flavio could never win a single Pro show during his entire IFBB career. © Facebook Yash Sharma is a former national level Football player, now a Strength Coach, Nutritionist and Natural Bodybuilder.

  23. In the present day, if you are a regular gym rat you must have heard about Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) and maybe considered using them as well. It is worth mentioning that steroids were never developed for athletic or aesthetic purposes. They were made to treat the ill with muscle wasting conditions in cases of burns, cancer, AIDS or old age. Despite significant side effects, people consistently use AAS in supra-physiological doses, until 2000 the primary users were men involved in bodybuilding (amateur or pro), powerlifting and other athletic endeavours. But there is an alarming increase in young generation using steroids, as a study published by Public Health Wales reports 1 million active male steroid users in U.K i.e. 3% of its population. What is even more surprising, that lads as young as 13-21 are taking steroids. If we extrapolate that 3% to India's Urban male population that will be equal to a whacking 5.4 Million steroid users. © Unsplash Are More Men Interested In Bodybuilding & Powerlifting? With this drastic increase in steroid use, you might think that more of today's generation is interested in competitive Bodybuilding and Powerlifting. But stats reveal something unpredictable: only 27% men were involved in strength and athletic events, merely 22% were involved in competitive bodybuilding, and 56% were using because of body image issues or cosmetic purposes. Having A Greek God Physique Is A Necessity In This Generation! Rick Collins, an American lawyer who specializes in steroid use cases, quotes: “We live in a culture that is absolutely obsessed with appearance. We are judged by our looks every day. So when we look our best, we feel more self-confident. Are steroid users trying to impress themselves or trying to impress others? Both, of course.” © YouTube We dwell in a time where a great physique is a necessity to get roles in movies, be a cover model or run a fitness YouTube channel. In fact, if you do not have 16-inch arms & washboard abs, people won't believe you are serious about fitness. The whole purpose of lifting weights and eating healthy has become: aesthetics. There is a growing pressure on men to look more manly, more muscular, this is probably forcing them to take anabolics. But put aside the physiological side effects, I believe this young steroid using generation is also missing out something vital: The Process. You Are Missing Out On The Process! © Medium Apart from building muscles and strength, you build a character in the gym. The countless number of reps over the years transforms your body from a fragile person who was unable to do bodyweight squats to someone who can now lift more than two times his body weight. These things do not just develop physical but also mental strengths. This reaps perseverance inside you, you develop confidence that with commitment and consistency, you get stronger at things you were once weak. Arnold Schwarzenegger profoundly applied these lessons he learned in the gym to his business, Hollywood and political career. Building a good body with steroids without putting in the necessary hard work and consistency is perhaps developing a loser mentality in this generation. P.S: We know that Arnold used steroids, but he won multiple shows naturally during his teenage and probably exploited his natural potential.

  24. 'Black Mirror' is one of the best shows to have ever existed and I'm not even exaggerating. It's so brilliant and every episode is so well-made and very memorable. All the fans of the show always get a great Christmas present a few days after 25th in the form of new 'Black Mirror' episodes every year and it seems like we won't be disappointed this year as well. Just last week, I was looking up the season 5 release date and finally got an answer today. Netflix is finally giving up something related to the new season and the excitement is at an all-time high. There's one problem though, as instead of an entire season, we might just be getting one Black Mirror Netflix Original movie called 'Bandersnatch', at least according to the easter egg on Netflix right now. If you search for 'Black Mirror' on the site right now, the results look something like this - © Netflix I like how they used 'Be right back' instead of 'Coming soon' because the first one is the title of an old episode. We see you, 'Black Mirror', we see you. Just a week till 28th - the tentative release date - and we'll know for sure what all we're getting and what the episode will be about. It's not yet clear if it will be a standalone episode like 'White Christmas' or a part of the fifth season and include the 'choose your own adventure' narrative. Upon closer look, it's titled as 'A Netflix Film: Black Mirror - Bandersnatch' With the image consisting of other Black Mirror episodes, is this a feature film? Or something to do with those 'Choose Your Own Adventure' reports. pic.twitter.com/3k0MDYyJAf — Scott Bryan (@scottygb) December 20, 2018 Someone found the synopsis as well! finally! the synopsis of the black mirror movie (taken from a korea rating website) can we fast forward to next friday, please? pic.twitter.com/ZGMIG3txgq — ana (@bluesgrady) December 20, 2018 And, here's some more information about 'Bandersnatch'. Turns out there was an ill-fated game named 'Bandersnatch' developed by a UK studio back in 1984, which is the year 'Bandersnatch' the Black Mirror episode takes place (we know this because a set photo shows Bob Marley's 'Legend' at #1 on the charts in a record store). pic.twitter.com/rytyTl22sP — Ebejeevezner Scrooge âðððâï¸ (@jeeveswilliams) November 21, 2018
  25. Christmas is around the corner, and it's only normal to have themed parties. Hell, it's even cool to have them. But, things might just take a tricky turn when you've been pranked by your buddies. Looks like Ryan Reynolds just had to go through that when Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal pulled one on him. Actually, now that we look at it, it sure looks like Wolverine and Mysterio teamed up against Deadpool. © The Hollywood Reporter Ryan Reynolds just put up an Instagram post where he attended a party, wearing a super festive and ugly sweater that legit looks like a gift was wrapped with a massive golden ribbon (that has been made into a bow). His headline reads: "These fu*king a**holes said it was a sweater party." © Instagram/vancityreynolds Clearly, he's not amused. Hugh and Jake, on the other hand, look like they're about to collapse from laughing so hard. © Instagram/vancityreynolds Who needs enemies when you have friends like this? Anyway, what we discovered is that we are ready for another crossover that has Wolverine, Deadpool, and Mysterio. Marvel, are you listening?
