Jackie recollects how he had the special opportunity as a young man to star in a Bruce Lee film.

There are few things dreaded more than having one’s flight delayed. Of course, what is worse is being delayed on the tarmac for hours after leaving the comforts of the airport bar behind to board the plane.

Now your delayed, and unnecessarily uncomfortable. 

And that’s exactly what happened to musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra while traveling from Beijing to Macao. After boarding their plane, the passengers discovered they would have to wait three long hours in the cramped fuselage before departing. 

To make lemonade out of lemons, and to entertain and calm the other travelers, the musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra decided to provide a “pop up” performance.

Last March, the man with the new Terminator arm went viral after he showed the camera how he can now use the fully robotic arm to tie his shoes and play cards. 

Now, Chinese farmer Sun has made international headlines after news of his homemade bionic arms hit the web.

NTDTV reports that after a tragic farming accident, the farmer lost both of his hands.

Better, other people in the area are now approaching Sun for their own bionic arms, supplementing his income further and helping the community.

You know capitalism is alive and strong now that Hooters has opened in China. The chain actually opened their first restaurant in Shanghai back in 2004, and but now they have shown that they are not just a fad. They are in China to stay.  

Over the weekend, travel channel Travel and Vehicles published this video of his experience at a Hooters restaurant in Shanghai. 

Just like in America, the waitresses sing to the patrons in scantly clad outfits and orange short-shorts. It’s so similar, yet so different.
