Out-of-control Ferry Smashes into Barcelona Port


Footage shows a huge crane crashing to the ground at Barcelona Port after being hit by an out-of-control ferry.

The vessel called Excellent operated by Italian firm Grandi Navi Veloci which was carrying 420 passengers, hit the the crane at speed after being pushed off course by high winds.

The collision caused a blaze which led to firefighters evacuating the area.

Authorities confirmed no injuries, although two people are said to have been treated by medics after suffering a panic attack.

Sixty were due to leave the vessel at port and another 115 were due to board the ship bound for Tangier, Morocco.

The fire was brought under control around 11am local time.

A local port workers' union tweeted: 'The ship Excellent, operated by GNV Traghetti, has had to abort its docking manouevre because of the bad weather conditions.

'As it was trying to leave the port the wind has pushed it against a crane which has fallen to the ground.'

The fire is thought to have started after the crane hit a fuel deposit behind it as it crashed to the ground.

It affected several containers by the port-side, forcing local authorities to activate an emergency response plan because two of the containers contained dangerous chemicals.

Black smoke rising from the scene of the collision, which happened just after 8am this morning could be seen across Barcelona.

In January a huge ferry hit a cruise liner in the same port after apparent engine failure.

The collision between the roll-on roll-off Fantastic ferry belonging to the Italian shipping company Grandi Navi Veloci and the Viking Star cruise ship sparked initial fears a major rescue operation would have to be launched.

Fortunately no-one was injured in the incident on January 13.

Footage of the collision taken by a dock worker showed the Fantastic ferry's stern rammed against the side of the Viking Star as both vessels blasted their sirens.

The Italian ferry had reportedly lost engine power while docking in the port's B Terminal, from Tangier in Morocco.

The Fantastic ferry is said to have dropped an anchor to try to stop its drift without success before it hit the left side of the 750-foot-long Viking Star, which is operated by Norwegian-owned Viking Ocean Cruises and had docked in Barcelona from Valencia with 820 passengers on board ahead of a stop in Marseilles.

1995 Efren Reyes history-making Z-shot you will love


Even Efren’s opponent, Strickland loved it and knew this remarkable shot meant victory for Efren. Score was 12-12 in race-to-13 final. Efren was in deep trouble and came with this zigzag beauty (the now-famous Z-shot from 1995’s Sands Regency Open 9-ball). A sheer dazzler that received a standing ovation from all the lucky folks in attendance. Earl’s sportsmanship on this occasion was almost as remarkable as Efren's shot. Earl later told a billiards magazine reporter: “That shot will become part of pool history."

Guy sets up motion activated sprinklers to deter tourists from relieving themselves in his yard


We live in a beachfront community that attracts a lot of extra traffic in the summer months. Unfortunately the bar patrons feel it's ok to duck down the side of a house to relieve themselves on the way to the next bar. Last summer i bought a few motion activated sprinklers for each side of the house and it worked really well at keeping them at bay. I added a bucket connected to a trip wire at the back of our alley to my ,"please don't urinate on my house" arsenal.

Here's a montage of some of the video footage we've gotten since Memorial day weekend.

Super Mario Bros. Speedrun in 4:55.913


"The most clutch gamer alive." It was supposed to be a joke but somehow this happened- the first 4:55 in Super Mario Bros. and probably the last second-barrier that will ever be broken in this game. When I say "My FIRST run" in this video, I mean my first run ever to get past 1-2 on that pace. The 9 in the top corner of the timer was to keep track of how many attempts I'd done once I started going for the pipe clip in 1-2, so this was my 9th run since I started attempting that trick and my first run that got it successfully.

I can't believe this happened, but I'm very proud of this accomplishment :)

I reunited my brother with his first car


"First of all, sorry for the vertical video but if he knew I was filming him he would have known something was up.

My brother had a 1964 belair in high school that he loved, but sold it when he got a good offer on it. A few years ago I decided to track it down, and we found it. The guy who owned it let us know last summer he was selling, and we went to check it out.

Unfortunately, my brother couldn't afford it at the time since him and his GF wanted to get married and start a family, so I went back and bought it in secret.

I spent the last year restoring it and with the help of my family we surprised him with the car after our dodgeball championship match. This is the video of his reaction."

Competition: Win The Bletchley Circle - San Francisco Part One on DVD


The Bletchley Circle - San Francisco Part One is out on DVD on 27th August 2018. And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies on DVD to give away.

Synopsis
Following the success of the gripping ITV series, The Bletchley Circle, the WWII codebreakers return for a brand new series, The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco starring Crystal Balint, Rachael Stirling, Chanelle Peloso and Julie Graham as four inspirational code-cracking geniuses.

The Bletchley Circle, saw Jean (Graham – One of Us) and Millie (Stirling – Detectorists), WWII codebreakers who played a crucial role in ending the war, join forces with their former colleagues to solve a series of grisly murders, foil a chemical weapons cover-up, and crack a human trafficking case — all using their formidable minds and codebreaking skills.

With the team disbanded, Jean is looking for a new challenge away from her librarian duties and Millie is bored tutoring rich children of the aristocracy. When Millie sees an article in The San Francisco Chronicle that describes a murder almost identical to one that felled a former colleague during the war, the pair makes a momentous decision...

Set during the exciting post-war social change in the 1950s, the intrepid duo are drawn to the Pacific Coast where they meet Iris (Balint – Prison Break) and Hailey (Peloso – Level Up) , their US counterparts during the war. The four women team up and are soon solving murders and high-stake crimes with their unique collection of talents.

The Dingo fencing machine is capable of erecting 6km of 6 strand fence in one day.   The Dingo fencing machine is powered by the Dingo Mini Digger. It uses a specially designed aluminium fence post that is fed from a magazine on the fencing machine.  The 6 strands of wire are fed through the magazine and the posts are driven into the ground by a breaker/driver with the wire strands already in place.
