The Ahrlac (Advanced High Performance Reconnaissance Light Aircraft) will have a number of uses, including border patrol and surveillance. But, just in case, they’ve also equipped it with a 20mm canon. At a cool R79,59 million each, these badboys aren’t exactly recession friendly. But who cares? Who needs money when you have guns?

Eyewitness News radio bulletins will never be the same again after one newsreader lost it last night and f-bombed all kinds of philosophies to anyone that was listening to the 01h00 news. Anarchist and environmentalist, Mark Esterhuysen, probably won’t be reading the news anymore. NSFW, obviously.
This week’s Tuesday Tabs ambassador is, quite simply, Kirsten Dunst. She’s not really my vibe but I know there are a lot of people out there who dig her. If you don’t know who she is, she’s the one with the skew toof, from the movie Spiderman. Remember the upside-down kiss? That’s the one.. Check [...]
So hey, it turns out that on top of everything else, Hitler got slapped with a speeding fine south of Ingolstadt for going twice the speed limit in his Mercedes limousine. This was about two years before becoming Fuhrer, though, so Adolf got his chauffeur to take the heat to keep from spoiling his image.

You do not want to piss Catherine Kieu off if you value your manhood! After an argument with her husband about a friend of his coming over to spend the night, she drugged him, tied him up in their bed and cut off his penis.
From the Brazilian super model to Crocs, everything eventually has its time in the sun. That rule also applies fully to health food. The “newest” African superfood has been growing on some really old trees for a really long time – it’s Baobab fruit.
Google and Israel’s national museum, the Israel Museum, have come together to place a number of the world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls online for the first time.

Here we go again. Last month we told you that the Dalai Lama had applied for a South African visa to visit Desmond Tutu on the Arch Bishop’s 80th birthday. This is happening next week, yet our government has not issued the Lama with a visa – something he applied for months ago. You do the math.

Vata Ngobeni, a South African rugby journalist, was detained by police in a New Zealand pub last night. According to the officer who took him into custody, he “fitted the profile of a drug dealer.” Ngobeni happened to be the only black person in the venue at the time. He was also the only one that was asked to take a trip downtown. Awkward.
On Sunday, 20 000 bullfighting fans packed Barcelona’s La Monumental bullring to watch the last corrida that Catalonia will hold; the event was headlined by Spain’s premier matador, José Tomás.

With a name like Doña Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, 18th Duchess of Alba, one might excuse her for looking like a struck match. Clearly someone does, seeing as the twice-widowed aristocrat is getting remarried to Alfonso Diez, a man 24 years her junior. The news was announced after she bequeathed every penny she owns, to her children.
The Draft Dangerous Weapons Bill, published recently in the government gazette, has been taking heavy criticism this morning. With a bit of luck, the badly worded document, which seeks to ban things like toy guns, will have statements like this removed: “…any object that can cause injury or have the ability to take a person temporarily ‘out of action.’”
File photo: Sunday Times This weekend, the Sunday Times reported that a yacht, owned by Mmamolanewane Accommodation Holdings had been moved in the dead of night to a secret location.

During a speech over the weekend in Germany, the Pope warned of threats posed by abortion and gay marriage.

I don’t answer private numbers. Nor do a lot of people I know. But a lot of them haven’t reached my elite level. The “elite communicator” level is where you find yourself when you have absolutely zero curiosity as to who might be calling. You’re over it. You’re so far gone, that you only answer [...]
This week’s re-make is less a strict film re-make, and more the graduation of a classic television interpretation to the big screen, and considering how well acclaimed the original story is, it’s quite surprising this hasn’t happened sooner: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Kenya’s Wangari Maathai has died while undergoing cancer treatment in Nairobi at the age of 71. An activist for conservation, transformation and women’s rights, she was the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that an Australian technologist, Nik Cubrilovic, has discovered that Facebook is tracking the websites its users visit even when they have logged out of the social networking site.

No More Anonymous ‘Defriending’ On Facebook – With a slew of cosmetic changes and tweaks, Facebook users could be forgiven for getting a little frustrated over the last few days.

The New Age did a cool article on our Johannesburg studio. Ian F and the gang have been waking up the upwardly mobile on 2oceansvibe Radio for over a month now. This, from The New Age: Ian F is, simply put, a South African radio legend. With a career spanning nearly two decades, he’s pretty [...]
Oh, you’ve only heard of it? Not good enough, my friends. This new puppy is getting a few tongues wagging. Questions are being raised, like: Is it awesome? Is it awful? Is it hot, or am I labouring under the burden of car beer goggles? Well, until such time as you get your hands on [...]
A hero This Saturday 24 September is National Braai Day. There are a few hours left, so you really need to get your act together and you need to get ready. Check braai equipment, snap up that meat from butchery, find friends, and decide where you will be braaing. In places like New Zealand, it’s [...]
What were you doing today my friends? Working? I should hope not. Because, as you’ll know by now, a Friday done Jack’s way involves little to no work at all.

The occasional airport comes kitted with sleeping lounges, but not everyone can get into those lounges. So, that’s what Sleepbox is for. Sleepbox is a temporary bedroom for the average traveler, that can be rented for periods of time while you’re tired and hanging around at the airport.
