Icelandair’s Perfect Response to HUGE Game of Thrones Actor’s Complaint

Oct 22, 2014 By Abraham 0

Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, or — more simply — Thor is one of the world’s strongest men.

At 6 feet, 9 inches tall, it’s not surprising that he was a professional basketball player in his home country of Iceland. Unfortunately, a knee injury ruined these aspirations, but it did not stop him from winning Iceland’s strongest man competition in 2011 or placing 2nd in the worldwide competition this year.

The Mountain

However, despite these accomplishments, if you’ve heard of him or if you recognize him, it’s probably because of his role in HBO’s Game of Thrones as Gregor Clegane. As it happens and for obvious reasons, this character’s nickname is “The Mountain.”

Oct 22, 2014 By Abraham 0

The Kinder River runs through the county of Derbyshire in the heart of England. At one point along its short and meandering course it drops 98 feet.

After Hearing This Woman’s Harrowing Story, You’ll Want the App that Saved Her Life

Oct 21, 2014 By Megan Berman 1

Last week, after 18 agonizing hours trapped in her car at the bottom of a ravine, 28-year old Melissa Vasquez was rescued…because of an app and a brilliant police officer.

Vasquez lost control of her car in San Jose, California, driving off the road into a 500 foot ravine, which was so far down that her OnStar GPS system couldn’t locate her.

The day of Vasquez’ accident, the OnStar system in her car alerted police officers to an accident in San Jose — but after searching for two hours while OnStar honked the horn, first responders couldn’t locate her. Later that day, an OnStar signal indicated that her car was in downtown San Jose—though of course, they didn’t find her car there, either.

When she didn’t come home that night, her family called to report her missing, and the responding officer, Dave Cameron had a bright idea: Find My iPhone, an app from Apple that allows users to track the location of their other devices.
