As if skydiving isn’t scary enough already, things got pretty hairy for this Aussie. During a skydive the Australian man had a near-death experience after suffering a seizure while at 9000ft! Lucky for him his colleague and jumpmaster quickly noticed that something was wrong and came to the rescue, opening the parachute for the unconscious man.
The Australian was attending an Accelerated Free Fall programme when the accident happened and he spent about 30 seconds unconscious during the freefall.

The world’s rarest Action Man costume could become the most expensive action toy in British history and fetch £20,000 at auction. Why? Because nobody believed it ever existed until a 87-year-old collector, a former toy rep, gave it up for sale.
The costume is so unusual that it is thought to be one of the only ones ever made. Some feared it had been forever lost. The unnamed collector is set to make a staggering £100,000 when his ultra-rare collection of Action Man uniforms goes under the hammer later this year.
The action will be held in Thornaby, North Yorkshire but a date has not yet been set. All costumes will be sold without the beloved 12-inch figures and the price is related to the mint conditions in which the uniforms are sold.
Prices like that are nothing unusual, a Star Wars collector recently paid £18,000 at auction for a rare figurine which went on sale 35 years ago for just £1.50.

Food scientists at The Robin Collective (UK marketing agency) in collaboration with KFC have created the edible coffee cup. The cup is made out of biscuit and has been wrapped in sugar paper. In addition, the sugar paper is lined with a layer of white chocolate.
KFC even went further and infused the cups with mood improving aromas,” like ‘coconut sun cream,’ ‘freshly cut grass’ and ‘wild flowers,’ which “evoke positive memories which customers associate with warm weather, sunshine and summer holidays.”
Let’s hope they haven’t used any chemicals for those aromas. The “Scoff-ee Cups” will only be available in a limited number of UK stores, as the experimental packaging drink is still in the developmental phase. Image Source: Screenshot/KFC/2015
