World's highest bungee jump set Guinness world record - Mohr Keet


 JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Mohr Keet, of George, 96, bungee jumped off the Bloukrans Bridge outside Mossel Bay, judged to be the world's highest bungee jump (jumpers fall around 160m off the 216m-high bridge) - setting the world record for the Oldest bungee jumper.

The previous Guinness world record for the oldest bungee jumper was James Guyer, aged 74 years 47 days.

   "It was too short," Mohr Keet, a pensioner from George said after he bungee jumped off the 216m Bloukrans Bridge in the Eastern Cape.

    It is the fifth jump completed by Keet who is no stranger to adrenaline activities, having been white water rafting and parachuting in his 80s.

    Keet said there was no reason why other people could not do the same. Keet – who first made the jump a decade ago when he was 88 – said he bungy jumped for “the thrill” and to “get rid of fear”.

    “They’ve got to make up their minds and go and do it. You’ve got to overcome your fear. I have a fear of falling and noises and by going to jump like that I hope to overcome that fear.”

   After the jump, a recovery specialist was lowered to where Keet was hanging and he was attached to a winch and hoisted back up to the platform. After the plunge, paramedic Riaan Botha said Keet’s blood pressure was “absolutely perfect”.

    His daughter, Ellen van der Nett, and his grand- niece, Yvette Kruger, jumped afterwards. Another daughter, Lucille Keet, who lent moral support during the jump, said he took his elderly sisters to Cape Town’s adventure centre Ratanga Junction when he was 86. He had also been white water rafting and parachuting. “He’s an inspiration and he never gives up on anything,” she said.

   A registered auditor and mountain club member witnessed the fall. They would verify his age, confirm his identity and that he completed the jump.

   "He's set the record three times already," said Face Adrenalin's Devan Tuohey, "but this will be the first time that we'll be applying to make it official.   



 Starting in 1981 and as of December 22nd, 2009 there have been at least 140 fatalities related to the sport. BASE jumping is one of the world's more dangerous recreational activities, with overall fatalities in 2002 estimated at about one fatality per sixty participants

 Keet, who during the Second World War was captured by Germans while on a return trip from America and spent four years in a prisoner-of-war camp outside Paris, said: “I believe that you have to do things, to live life, so to speak. You have to face a challenge, to be able to go through with it for yourself – not for exhibition but for yourself.”
   
     "Next he said he wants to do a tandem skydive in Mossel Bay," company spokesman Martin Hatchuel told the Cape Argus.

Ultimate Aero to launch world's fastest car in India - Shelby Super Car


Shelby Super Car is planning to eat the biggest pie in the market share of Indian automobile by launching its Ultimate Aero. The US- based automobile manufacturer Shelby Super Car (SSC) is all set to launch the world’s fastest car, Ultimate Aero, in Mumbai in near future.

After the Mumbai launch Delhi is second in the list to see this ultimate car. The Ultimate Aero became the world’s fastest production car, certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. Guinness officials verified the official speed to be .52 kph (.32 mph) faster than SSC had originally noted.

This car is being flashed as the world’s fastest car, with a top speed of 413kmph.The supercar will be available approximately at Rs. 6 crore in India. The Ultimate Aero costs $654,400 in the US, but in India it will attract 100% import duty, which will increase the price tag to Rs. 6 crore. Shelby expects to sell a few dozen of Aeros in India per annum. And they are calculating this by analyzing the poor Indian roads, heavy traffic and fewer buyers of high-segment cars.




Aero attains its speed with a 6.35L twin-turbo V8 engine which runs at 14PSI of boost and produces 1147hp of power at 6950 rpm and 1113NM of torque at 6200 rpm, with a 91 octane fuel. The car is manufactured out of lightweight titanium and carbon fibre material.

The luxury features offered by Ultimate Aero includes, Customised supple leather seats
Suede interior ,Multi-speaker music system ,On-board video with a DVD screen ,Automatic back-up camera ,Navigational backup ,Power windows and mirrors The two-seater, butterfly door (up sky-folding) car runs only on premium unleaded 91 high octane petrol, which is now available in some of India’s largest cities.
The world’s top luxury car manufacturers like Bentley, BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar have seen their sales booming in the past few years in India. The Aero is considered as the competitor of other supercars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bugatti and Koenigsegg which also comes with numerous luxury features.

India, the world’s second-fastest growing car market, has seen the sales of luxury cars growing at a fast rate in the past one year, despite a global downturn that affected sales in developed markets such as the US and Europe. Sales of high-end cars are expected to cross the 10,000 mark by 2010.

World's Largest Easter egg out of crystal-pure ice - Russian Book of Record


To celebrate Easter, artists at the Gallery of Russian Ice Sculpture made an Easter egg out of crystal-pure ice. The block of ice, weighing almost one ton, was publicly turned into the graceful egg, revisiting the best traditions of Carl Faberge. The achievement was registered in the Russian Book of Records.   

The artists were working in the street when the temperature was well above zero. They had to hurry before the ice started to melt. It took them a little more than an hour to turn the block of ice into a beautiful Easter egg.

The egg is two meters high, weighs 800 kg, and measures 90 cm in diameter. Last year’s sculpture was about 1.5 m high and weighed half a ton.
