Michael Jackson: hitting the jackpot

What's the use ? If there would be a 'Michael Jackson' company on the stock market, today it would climb on the top. After reading this news from Fox News, you should be definitely amazed.
How much money are being shared between so many unknown persons and a lot of these people are criticizing Michael Jackson for his suspicions related to pedophile relations. That is worse: to fill your pocket with money from a person's death, whom actually you are detesting. Take a look at some 'quotes':

The King of Pop held seven of the top 10 album downloads on Apple's iTunes store Friday morning, including the top five spots. In Amazon.com's CD section, the top 15 sellers were by Michael Jackson or the Jackson 5.
And that is only for some stores on the internet. What about all the news that surrounds the world and with them the ads ?!

Patrick Dempsey - the commercial product

Patrick Dempsey is an interesting figure. Some people know him from the TV series 'Grey's Anatomy' and other people seen Versace's ads (see image below).
Now he is again in the front page of newspapers for his anticipated participation in the Le Mans race. I'm pretty sure that he will become a very expensive 'product'
for mass-media in the next period of time. Just think about the whole image: fast car + famous fashion brand + movie star. What does it makes ? A good commercial.

Hitman vs Pacman - the game

Hitman vs Pacman. I like Pacquiao. 1 year ago he won against Juan Manuel Marquez For me, Pacquiao is a curious figure. He won very tight last year, he has a funny nickname "Pacman" as the game character that gives headache to our parents, but still is a very popular face. For me he is more like the joker from Batman. Speaking of games, the Pacman's opponent on 3rd of may, Ricky Hatton, was another legendary figure: "Hitman". In the game "Hitman" was a very cold blooded character who was killing without mercy. Now if you can't imagine the characters together, take a look down on this page and imagine them fighting.

Turing Test - people deny dating computers

Such a weird thing is this 'Turing Test'... Named after Alan Turing, the inventor of the test that finds difference between human and computer (machine, as it was stated at the beginning), the Turing Test, is the headline on popular searches in the past few weeks. So far no computer have passed the test - which means that the people were not fooled by the computers. Ok, that is not surprising, but there are dating sites were people don't know that they actually are speaking with bots (I'm pretty sure that some of them are satisfied with that). Maybe the people who found out that they are talking with some "hot" computers, put these computers on the wall of shame. This is not a surprize too. I understand that the computers knows only what are told to know, but as long as people consider themselves "dumb" and acts so, then who are these people who says that the computers have failed the Turing Test. And the proof is those stupid warnings on packaging:

"Caution: The contents of this bottle should not be fed to fish." -- On a bottle of shampoo for dogs.

"Do not use while sleeping." -- On a hair dryer.

"Do not eat toner." -- On a toner cartridge for a laser printer.

"For use by trained personnel only." -- On a can of air freshener.

"Keep out of reach of children and teenagers." -- On a can of air freshener.

"Warning: has been found to cause cancer in laboratory mice." -- On a box of rat poison.

Thanks Alan Turing for making idiots look intelligent

Gilles Bensimon, suffering of marital disorder

Today, the name on the web surfer's finger thumb is "Gilles Bensimon". "The Real Housewives of New York City", the TV series evaluated as a "crap" by the IMDB users, brings in a new person, Kelly Jean Killoren Bensimon, the third wife of the famous fashion fotographer Gilles Bensimon. Kelly is among others the founder of Elle Accessories and was a model also for Elle. The name of Gilles Bensimon is "hot" today because his name is also associated with another famous model, Elle Macpherson (his second wife). So, everybody wants to know who is this guy who was married with these top models.

A heartbreak for two from Chelsy Devy

Is kinda fun to be a sort of star without having something special, isn't it? There is this guy, Elliott Giboson, who got on newspapers and tv shows with his lookalike Prince Harry, catching the attention from all the people, but recently this wasn't fun anymore. Prince Harry ended his relation with Chelsy Davy and the people were sending consolations to him, so Elliott, although he didn't got a pie of Chelsy, he took his pie of kindness and consolations. I think that his life is like a shadow; when something bad happens to Harry, he takes consolations too, when Harry is happy, well, he's like usual.

These days he wasn't that happy as he declared:

"I was in London on the underground on Sunday and there was a group of 50 American teenagers heading up the opposite escalator from me. One of the girls saw me and shrieked 'It's Harry!' and another shouted 'Chelsy didn't deserve you!'. Before I knew it there was a stampede of young women coming down the wrong way down the escalator. They were coming at me full throttle - I'm sure they knocked down a person or two along their way."
