Ladyboy Flight Attendants - World First Transsexual Air Hostesses Hire By Thai Airlines

If you still believe there are only two sexes, you’re living in the dark ages. There isn’t just males and females anymore… there’s a third sex too.

They’re called ladyboys, and as the name suggests, they are men who either disguise themselves as women or undergo sex reassignment surgery to become women.

And there’s a good reason for why ladyboys have become so popular: money.

You see, in southeast Asia, women having been making a ton of money for a long time thanks to an abundant sex industry. Well, the guys wanted to get in on the action too, so about a decade ago, many men started changing their appearance to look like women, and they’ve been fooling chubby white guys who travel to Thailand for cheap sex ever since.

But once they’re over the hill (that’s like 19-years old in the Asian sex industry), they have to look for other work. However, most ladyboys find it difficult to get a legit job.

That’s why it was such a surprise when a start-up airline in Thailand called P.C. Air became the first airline to hire ladyboy flight attendants.

Six ladyboys were hired, including the winner of 2007 Miss Tiffany Universe, which is a transsexual beauty pageant that’s watched by over 15 million people in Thailand.

The flight attendants will be required to wear a gold name tag that identifies them as ladyboys, but it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to tell just by looking at them. Take a look at this picture and you’ll see what we mean:

Durham rowers break Atlantic crossing world record - Team Hallin World Record

Atlantic crossing world record video, Team Hallin World Record 2011, Fastest rowing across the Atlantic
A Wimbledon rower who smashed a trans-Atlantic world record on Monday has lost the title less than 24 hours later.

David Hosking skippered the six rowers of Team Hallin across the ocean in just under 32 days – beating the previous record for the 3,000-mile crossing by one day.

But yesterday rival boat the Sara G landed with a better time, taking the title from Mr Hosking’s celebrating crew.

Team Hallin, who are aiming to raise £60,000 for armed forces charity Combat Stress, set off from Tenerife in their trimaran boat Hallin Marine on January 6.

Hours after landing Mr Hosking, a 55-year-old former Royal Navy commander from Wilton Crescent, said: “Everyone has been amazing, our bodies are wrecked. It was stunning teamwork that saw us set a new world record, and the culmination of two years of planning.”

And on the day of arrival crew member Chris Covey proposed to his girlfriend Susie Easton, surprising her with a ring he had carried with him for the whole voyage.

The Sara G, which had six crew members from Britain, Malta and Ireland, left from Tarfaya in Morocco on January 5, but as the two boats went by different routes across the ocean, their times were used to find average speeds.

This calculation handed the Sara G an average speed of 3.9mph – compared to Team Hallin’s 3.4mph – the record and the Ocean Rowing blue riband trophy, which is adjudicated by the Ocean Rowing Society.

World's Longest Lasting Light Bulb - Thomas Edison

Today Google Doodle marks the 164th Birthday of Thomas Edison. On the occasion of Thomas Edison 164th Birthday the Google logo portrays some of the famous inventions of the scientist. This includes phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb.

The world's longest lasting light bulb is the Centennial Light located at 4550 East Avenue, Livermore, California. It is maintained by the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department. The fire department claims that the bulb is at least 109 years old and has only been turned off a handful of times. The bulb has been noted by The Guinness Book of World Records, Ripley's Believe It or Not!, and General Electric as being the world's longest-lasting light bulb.

While it might seem astonishing that so many longest-lasting light bulbs have been so infrequently turned off, this is the precise reason for their longevity. Most of the wear and tear that leads to burnouts in incandescent light bulbs is caused by turning them on and off, not by burning them. Each time the bulb is turned on and off, the filament is heated and cooled. This causes the material of the filament to expand and contract, in turn causing tiny stress cracks to develop. The more the light is turned on and off, the larger these cracks grow, until eventually the filament breaks at some point, causing the light to burn out.

Thomas Edison designed a bulb that was supposed to last forever, called the Eternal Light, and turned it on on October 22, 1929. The bulb is located in the Memorial Tower at the Edison Memorial Museum in Menlo Park, New Jersey. The tower fell down in 1937, but the bulb's power was supposedly uninterrupted, according to General Electric, and continued to burn while a second tower was constructed. According to museum curator Jack Stanley, the bulb is fake, consisting of a hollow bulb illuminated by a series of automobile headlights mounted in the display's base
