[PF:172966] JUST UNBELIEABLE

 

The Man Who Can't Get Fat
 
 
Mr Perry, 59, can eat whatever he likes - including unlimited pies,
 burgers and desserts - and never get fat. He cannot put on 
weight because of a condition called lipodystrophy that 
makes his body rapidly burn fat.

He used to be a chubby child, but at age 12 the fat dropped off 
"almost over night". He initially tried to eat more to gain weight,
 but it had no effect. Mr Perry, of Ilford in Essex, endured a decade 
of tests before the illness was diagnosed. It finally emerged that his 
body produces six times the normal level of insulin. Doctors have admitted 
that the condition would be a "slimmer's dream".
 
 
The Man Who Doesn't Feel Cold
 
 
Dutchman Wim Hof, also known as the Iceman, is the man that
 swam under ice, and stood in bins filled with ice. He climbed the 
Mt. Blanc in shorts in the icy cold, harvested world records and 
always stands for new challenges.

Scientists can't really explain it, but the 48-year-old Dutchman is 
able to withstand, and even thrive, in temperatures that 
could be fatal to the average person.
 
 
The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep: 
stayed awake 24 hours a day for years
 
 
Rhett Lamb is often cranky like any other 3-year-old toddler, 
but there's one thing that makes him completely different: he 
has a rare medical condition in which he can't sleep a wink.

Rhett is awake nearly 24 hours a day, and his condition has baffled 
his parents and doctors for years. They took clock shifts watching 
his every sleep-deprived mood to determine what ailed the young boy.

After a number of conflicting opinions, Shannon and David Lamb 
finally learned what was wrong with their child: Doctors diagnosed Rhett 
with an extremely rare condition called chiari malformation.

"The brain literally is squeezed into the spinal column. 
What happens is you get compression, squeezing, strangulating of 
the brain stem, which has all the vital functions that control sleep, 
speech, our cranial nerves, our circulatory system, even 
our breathing system," Savard said.
 
 
 
The Woman Who Can't Forget
 
 
That's the story of AJ, an extraordinary 40-year-old 
married woman who remembers everything.

McGaugh and fellow UCI researchers Larry Cahill and 
Elizabeth Parker have been studying the extraordinary case
 of a person who has "nonstop, uncontrollable and automatic" 
memory of her personal history and countless public events. 
If you randomly pick a date from the past 25 years and ask
 her about it, she'll usually provide elaborate, verifiable details 
about what happened to her that day and if there were any
 significant news events on topics that interested her. She usually
 also recalls what day of the week it was and what the weather was like.

The 40-year-old woman, who was given the code name AJ 
to protect her privacy, is so unusual that UCI coined a name for
 her condition in a recent issue of the journal
 Neurocase: hyperthymestic syndrome.
 
 
The Girl Who Eats Only Tic Tacs
 
 
Meet Natalie Cooper, a 17-year-old teenager who has 
a mystery illness that makes her sick every time she eats anything.
 Well, almost anything. She can eat one thing that doesn't
 make her sick: Tic tac mint!

For reasons that doctors are unable to explain, Tic tacs are the 
only thing she can stomach, meaning she has to get the rest of
 her sustenance from a specially formulated feed through a tube.
 
 
The Musician Who Can't Stop Hiccupping
 
 
Chris Sands, 24, from Lincoln, hiccups as often as every two seconds - 
and sometimes even when he is asleep. He has tried a variety of cures,
 including hypnosis and yoga, but nothing has worked. Mr Sands 
thinks his problem stems from an acid reflux condition caused by 
a damaged valve in his stomach. "If the acid levels are severe 
enough they are going to do keyhole surgery and grab part of my
 stomach and wrap it around the valve to tighten it," he said.

Mr Sands, who is a backing singer in the group Ebullient, said 
the condition has hampered his career as he has only been able
 to perform four times. In the next couple of weeks --
as of the day of the report--, doctors at Nottingham's Queen's 
Medical Centre will put a tube into his stomach to monitor acid levels 
and decide if keyhole surgery is possible.
 

The Girl That Collapses Every Time She Laughs

 
Kay Underwood, 20, has cataplexy, which means that
 almost any sort of strong emotion triggers a dramatic 
weakening of her muscles. Exhilaration, anger, fear, surprise,
 awe and even embarrassment can also cause sufferers to
 suddenly collapse on the spot.

Kay, of Barrow-upon-Soar, Leicestershire (UK), who was 
diagnosed with the condition five years ago, once collapsed 
more than 40 times in a single day. She said: "People find it 
very odd when it happens, and it isn't always easy 
to cope with strangers' reactions. "

Like most cataplexy sufferers, Ms Underwood is also battling narcolepsy -
 a condition that makes her drop off to sleep without warning. 
Narcolepsy affects around 30,000 people in the UK and 
about 70 per cent of them also have cataplexy.
 
 
The Woman Who is Allergic to Modern Technology
 
 
For most people talking on a mobile phone, cooking dinner in
 the microwave or driving in a car is simply part of modern living 
in 21st century Britain. But completing any such tasks is 
impossible for Debbie Bird - because she is allergic to 
Cell Phones and Microwaves.

The 39-year-old is so sensitive to the electromagnetic 
field (emf) or 'smog' created by computers, mobile phones, 
microwave ovens and even some cars, that she develops 
a painful skin rash and her eyelids swell to three times their
 size if she goes near them. As a consequence, Mrs Bird,
 a health spa manager, has transformed her home into an
 EMF-free zone to try and stay healthy. 'I can no longer
 do things that I used to take for granted,' Mrs Bird said. 
"My day-to-day life has been seriously affected by EMF"..

[PF:172964] Now YOU can own a Pal-V One flying car


 

 
 
 

Now YOU can own a Pal-V One flying car - but it'll set you back a staggering $295,000

  • Pal-V One is a motorcycle and gyrocopter and costs $295,000 (£180,000)
  • It switches between drive and flight mode in just 10 minutes
  • Owners must have a driving license and a Sports Pilot Certificate
  • The vehicle reaches speeds of 112mph and flies at altitudes of 4,000ft

 

Just 18 months after its maiden voyage, the Pal-V One flying car can finally be yours - if you have a spare $295,999 (£180,000) that is.

Technically it's not a car - it's a three-wheeled motorcyle that transforms into a gyrocopter - but it is legal to drive, and fly, and switches between modes in just 10 minutes.

The Dutch-built Pal-V One can reach speeds of up to 112mph and goes from 0 to 60 in under 8 seconds when driven on the road.

 

The Pal-V One - a three-wheeled motorcyle that transforms into a gyrocopter at the flick of a switch - is now on sale for $295,000 (£180,000)

The Pal-V One - a three-wheeled motorcyle that transforms into a gyrocopter at the flick of a switch - is now on sale for $295,000 (£180,000). It takes 10 minutes to switch between modes and can go from 0 to 60 in the air in under 8 seconds

THE PAL-V ONE SPECIFICATIONS

The two-seater vehicle converts from a three-wheeled motorcycle to a gyrocopter in 10 minutes.

It has 230hp, four-cylinder engine and reaches speeds of up 112 mph in the air or on the road.

The helicycle goes from 0 to 60 mph in under eight seconds.

The gyrocopter is designed to cruise at low altitudes (below 4,000ft) and it requires a 540ft runway for take-offs. For landing, the vehicle needs just 100 ft.

The 27-gallon gas tank provides a 220-mile flight range (750 miles on the road).

It is made from carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum and weighs 1,499lbs.

Owners must have a Sports Pilot Certificate to fly the vehicle.

Owners will need a Sports Pilot Certificate to fly one.

The two-seater vehicle is on sale in the 2013 Hammacher Schemmler catalogue under the name The Helicycle, yet its design and specifications are identical to the Pal-V One's.

 

 

Like many flying car prototypes, including the TF-X from Austin-based Terrafugia, the Pal-V needs a 540ft runway in order to take-off.

When in flight mode, the vehicle looks like a helicopter, however, it is known as a gyrocopter or autogyro because the main power comes from the rotors at the rear of the vehicle.

Its rotors spin considerably slower than a helicopter's blades, too, and can't stall.

On the ground, the machine handles somewhere between a motorbike and a racing car - its chassis is built to lean into turns, and the two-seater can reach speeds of up to 112mph.

Unlike most fictional flying cars, of course, it can't just extend its rotors then hurtle skywards - the process takes about ten minutes. 

 
The Pal-V One, pictrured, needs a 540ft runway in order to take-off.

The Pal-V One, pictrured, needs a 540ft runway in order to take-off. When in flight mode, the vehicle looks like a helicopter, however, it is known as a gyrocopter or autogyro because the main power comes from the rotors at the rear of the vehicle

Once the engine stops, the propeller folds itself automatically into the driving position. Pushing a button then lowers the rotor mast into the horizontal position.

Rotor blades and tail have to be stowed away by the driver.

'On the ground the vehicle drives like a sports car,' said Pal-V. 'Within minutes its rotor is unfolded and its tail is extended: then it is ready to take off thanks to the advanced gyrocopter technology.'

The gyrocopter, pictured, is designed to cruise at low altitudes, below 4,000ft. Although it needs a 540ft runway for take-off, it only needs 100ft to land

The helicycle goes from 0 to 60 mph in under eight seconds.

The Pal-V One is on sale from retailer Hammacher Schemmler under the name The Helicycle - but the specifications are the same. It can reach speeds of up to 112 mph and tilts like a motorcycle when turning corners, left.  The helicycle goes from 0 to 60 mph in under eight seconds on the road, as well

'With these successful test results it is proven that it is not only possible to build a flying car but also that it can be done within existing international rules for both flying and driving.'

The Pal-V One features a 230hp, four-cylinder engine powered by petrol.

Its 27 gallon tank means pilots can fly for up to 220 miles at low altitudes - around 4,000ft - or drive for up 750 miles. 

It is made of carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum and weighs 1,500lbs.

The Pal-V One completed its maiden voyage just 18 months ago.

The Pal-V One completed its maiden voyage just 18 months ago. It is available in red, pictured, or black

To drive and fly the Pal-V One, pictured, owners must have a driving license and a Sports Pilot Certificate

[PF:172963] British Airways Super Jumbo Plane





Flight of the superjumbo: British Airways takes delivery of its first new £270million Airbus A380 as it touches down at Heathrow
 
Airbus A380 touched down in Heathrow from Toulouse this morning

Bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter than jets it replaces

First of a double-Decker dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways

Comes ahead of fleet going into service in Autumn
  
British Airways today took delivery of its new double-Decker 'superjumbo' which airline bosses say will herald a new era for the nation's flagship airline.
 
BA says passengers will find its new £270million Airbus A380 bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter and 'greener' than the ageing Jumbo jets it replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot.
 
This morning the giant of the skies touched down at Heathrow in London, waved on by cheering BA staff who welcomed its arrival.
 
The plane is the first of a dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways ahead of the model going into service in the autumn.
 
 
Homecoming: The Airbus A380 resplendent in distinctive BA livery dwarfs houses as it comes into land at Heathrow Airport, London
 
 
Feat of engineering: The huge plane, pictured at Heathrow this morning, will carry 469 passengers across First, Business and Economy classes
 
 

 
BA behemoth: The A380 superjumbo captain puts the plane's many wheels down in preparation for landing today
 
 
Good day for BA: Tricia Dowdell, 50 From Ascot, left, Sarah Kiff, 47 from Croxley Green, centre, and Julie Coker, 47 from Hayes, right, await the new arrival at Heathrow
 
 
Welcome party: From left to right, Graziella Buttaci, 26 from Surrey, Ruth Forbes, 29 from Beaconsfield, Delilah Legdlai, 40 from London Esha Sakon, 39 from Sandhurst and Laura Keeping, 40 from St Albans wve their flags to welcome the plane
 
 
 

 
British Airways today has taken delivery of the new double-Decker 'superjumbo' which airline bosses say will herald 'a new era' for the nation¿s flagship airline – the A3B0
 
 
BA says passengers will find its new £270million Airbus A380 bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter and 'greener' than the ageing Jumbo jets it replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot
 
It is part of the airline's wider five-year £5bn investment plan to refresh its fleet with 52 new aircraft including the Airbus's new rival Boeing 787 dubbed the 'plastic plane'.
 
 
Global icon: The A380 comes into land with London's skyline in the background
 
 

 
Giant: British Airways' first Airbus A380 superjumbo next to a sister Airbus A320 having arrived on its delivery flight
 
 
Arrival: The British Airways Airbus A380 prepares to touchdown at Heathrow this morning for the first time
 
 
Touchdown: The £270million A380 lands at Heathrow for the first time as the airline takes delivery of its first of 12 new planes
 
 

 
Arrival: Captain James Basnett landed BA's new double-Decker Airbus A380 touching down bang on time at 10.30am after a smooth and eerily quiet one and a half hour flight from the Airbuse factory in Toulouse
 
 
Arrival: BA staff celebrate outside at Heathrow as the A380 parks up for the first time outside its airbase
 

Pilot: The cockpit of the new A380 plane which has touched down at Heathrow for the first time
 
 

 
Up top: Inside the cockpit of the A380. The plane has two pilots, although on longer flights four will be used
 
 
The vast double Decker superjumbo planes can theoretically carry up to 800 people – provided all the passengers are squeezed into narrow economy-sized seats
 
 
BA add that the new economy seats have been cleverly designed to be thinner backed and hollowed out to increase seating space for passengers.
