HILARIOUS: Witches in Swaziland Banned from Flying above 150 Metres

This is hilarious!
Swaziland has launched a crackdown on high-flying witches after banning them from hovering above 150metres. Anyone caught flying their broomstick above the height limit faces arrest and a hefty R500,000 fine, the country’s Civil Aviation Authorities said this week.
According to the Corporate Affairs Sabelo Dlamini ‘A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,’. The new aviation law was highlighted after a private investigator was caught flying a helicopter equipped with a video camera to gather surveillance information.
Witchcraft is taken seriously in Swaziland where many people believe in the power of black magic. Last year a leading Swazi MP called for a hike in tax paid by witch doctors to help ease the cash-strapped country’s financial woes.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Rumored to Launch in March

Samsung Galaxy S4 (coming soon)

Considered by gadget and sophisticated phone lovers to be too soon, the SamMobile fan site says that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone will be unveiled on the 15th of March, 2013. A report which has remained anonymous has stated that the S4 would begin selling by early April.

Attempts to get direct verification from Samsung, however, have not been fruitful, as they say it is their policy to comment on such rumors or speculation. I mean, why should they, since it is good for business? Speculation is always a good thing.

Some say that the Galaxy S series is Samsung’s way to compete with Apple’s iPhone in the Smartphone market. Some might even say that they are on the top rival list for the iPhone’s run. The anticipation and suspense which greeted the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 was pretty high, and it is expected that the launch of the S4 would beat that.

The Samsung fan site says that the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be like that of its predecessors:  Europe and Asia would be the first receivers of the phone at the beginning of April, then the S4 would reach Africa (and Nigeria), Australia and the Americas by May or June.

Would it be appropriate to say that the Galaxy S4 is being released too soon, considering the time space between its speculated release and the release of the S3?

105-year-old woman renews driver’s license

Edythe Kirchmaier

105-year-old Edythe Kirchmaier recently renewed her California drivers license

There apparently isn’t much that can slow down Edythe Kirchmaier. The 105-year-old California resident made headlines on Monday when she passed her driving test – continuing 86 years without a blemish on her driving record and maintaining her status as the state’s oldest living driver.

“I just couldn’t imagine myself without a car,” said Kirchmaier. “It just didn’t feel very good.”

And that’s far from the only bit of notoriety to crop up recently in Kirchmaier’s life. Facebook has declared her its most senior user, she’s the University of Chicago’s oldest living former student, last week she appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show to celebrate her birthday and she has been a volunteer with the Direct Relief International (DRI) organization for 40 years.
