Hilário e genial :D

Breaking Bad’s ‘official’ alternate ending has been leaked on YouTube ahead of the release of the show’s complete series box set.

The AMC show’s finale aired in September but fans desperate for another piece of the hugely popular drama didn’t have to wait long.

While it was originally thought the alternate ending would be a serious offering, the show’s creators instead opted for a spoof of Malcolm In The Middle.

17 November 2013 - Los Angeles - USA  **** STRICTLY NOT AVAILABLE FOR USA ***  Bryan Cranston appears in spoof Breaking Bad alternate ending. The actor, who played Walter White on the hit show, has filmed a hilarious alternate ending to BReaking Bad. The three minute 40 second clip also features Cranston's former Malcolm in the Middle TV wife Jane Kazmarek and combines his two best known roles. The scene shows Bryan reprising his Malcolm In The Middle character Hal, and waking up to discover that the entire Breaking Bad TV series had been Halís nightmare. After Hal wakes up his wife Lois, he tells her he ëjust had the scariest dreamí. Lois replies: "I told you not to eat those deep fried Twinkies." Hal adds: "You donít understand. I was this meth dealer. Yeah. I was this world class chemist and I cooked and I sold this ultra-pure methamphetamine." Hal then becomes hysterical and starts to weep as he tells Lois what he remembers: "There was a guy who never spoke. He just rang a bell the whole time. And there was this other guy who was a policeman or ñ a DEA agent and I think he was my brother or something. He looked the guy from The Shield!" He is jokingly referring to the striking resemblance between Dean Norris, who plays Hank Schrader on Breaking Bad, and Michael Chiklis, who portrayed Vic Mackey on The Shield. Hal goes on: "And then there was this other little guy ñ a waif, a man child kid ñ who always looked like he was wearing his older brotherís clothes." The differences between Walter and Hal become most apparent when Hal tries to swear ñ and canít. He says: "He would always say things like ìHey, b****,î he starts, while talking about Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). But Hal stops himself before continuing: "The b-word. He would use the b-word a lot, he would say: 'Yo, b-word,' and: 'Yay, science b-word'." Hal adds: "And then there was me, and I had a shaved head. And a goatee and I wore a black hat. And the only thing that made sense in th

Customers shocked by telekinesis prank that sees man pushed up against wall

Luiz Paulo Migueloni [ Smitten ]:

Simplesmente genial hahah :D

Postado originalmente em Metro:

The last thing you need to see when getting a coffee in the morning is a woman assaulting a man by pushing him up against the wall using the power of her mind.

But that’s what some customers at a US café thought they were witnessing when a young lady flipped out after someone had spilled coffee on her laptop.

But it turned out the altercation wasn’t real and actually a viral stunt for upcoming horror movie remake Carrie.

That didn’t stop it from being any less hilarious though, as the victims of the set-up reacted with both astonishment and fear when the woman seemed to have the power of telekinesis.

Carrie, viral video

During the two-minute video posted on YouTube, she manages to move tables, make books fly off the shelves and push tables without touching them.

Como identificar e ultrapassar os obstáculos da vida

Girls can do anything!

“Ao longo da vida, deparamo-nos com uma variedade imprevisível de obstáculos. A identificação e superação dos mesmos pode construir um desafio. Quase sempre a solução está a nossa frente, nós é que não reconhecemos. Conheça alguns passos que poderão ajudar a enfrentar as barreiras da sua vida.”

  1. Saia da sua rotina e vá para um lugar tranquilo, de preferência junto à natureza. Respire muitas vezes de forma profunda. A respiração   que normalmente fazemos é automática e usa apenas 30 a 40% da capacidade do nosso pulmão, espere 2 ou 3 segundos e expire pela boca. Repita esse processo algumas vezes , uma vez que permite uma melhor oxigenação no cérebro, limpa a mente e ajuda a ver as coisas com mais clareza. É um passo simples que é muito eficiente no que diz a respeito à concentração.
  2. Comece a  lembrar-se do que o incomoda. Utilize uma caneta e papel para estabelecer uma relação entre essas coisas. A primeira surpresa que irá ter é que a sua lista vai ser bem menor que imaginava. Ao tentar escrever sobre seus problemas, irá constatar que a maioria se resume apenas a uma frase. Coloque-os enumerados numa lista, guarde-a e não pense em cada problema ali escrito. Gaste seu tempo em possíveis soluções para cada elemento dessa lista. Comece pelo mais simples de ser resolvido.
  3. Se está mal com alguém, procure resolver essa situação. Quanto maior a proximidade a essa pessoa, maior o sofrimento. Pondere sobre a razões que não tornaram possível a resolução deste problema. O conflito entre pessoas constitui  um “fardo” pesado, uma vez que o indivíduo passa semanas, meses e até anos com essa mágoa. A verdade é que somos fracos, pois escondemo-nos atrás da mágoa e preferimos o ódio. É necessária muita coragem. humildade e determinação para perdoar. Não importa o quanto a outra pessoa é culpada. Não estamos a procurar de quem é a culpa ou de que tem que pedir perdão, mas sim a paz de espírito e a liberdade de ser feliz sem “fardos” pesados.
  4. Na sua lista podem aparecer diversos aspetos  que deseja solucionar. Elabore o caminho que necessita de seguir para resolver essa questão e procure determinar onde se desviou. Questione porque foi difícil e se foi apenas o adir da situação que a tornou aparentemente tão volumosa. Não permita que aconteça novamente e que veja se não é melhor colocar a situação atrás das costas como se nunca tivesse existido. É como soltar um saco peado e começar a andar sem peso. Por mais simples que pareça, funciona. Decide apagar esse problema e veja como fica mais leve. Priorize os problemas que ainda permanecem na sua lista.
  5. Verifique se necessita da ajuda de um familiar, de um amigo de confiança ou de profissional. O envolvimento de outra pessoa transmite-lhe segurança relativamente ao caminho que seguiu e ao que pensa que será a solução. O salmista David diz: “Na multidão de conselho há sabedoria”. É importante identificar tudo o que é problemático e aceitar esse fato. Prometa a si mesmo que vai agir com intuito de eliminar esses obstáculos que lhe impedem de ser feliz, independentemente das dificuldades e das decisões complicadas.
  6. A sua mente é um campo de batalha. Tem que eliminar, para além dos obstáculos e problemas, tudo o que lhe causa pesar, dor, sofrimento e desgaste. Fique atento aos momentos onde começa a pensar nos problemas. Quando tenta dormir e não consegue, deve ler ou fazer uma oração, de modo a desviar os pensamentos da sua mente. Nunca deve divagar nos problemas e perturbar o seu descanso.
  7. Crie hábito de se sorrir ao espelho. É uma terapia simples que melhora significativamente a maneira de começar o dia. Escreva uma frase de otimismo e lembre-se de se for no objetivo de ser feliz. Mantenha pensamentos positivos e sorria para quem olha para si. Vai ver que é bom ver o seu sorriso retribuído.
  8. Mantenha-se firme, mas não espere que seja fácil. Apesar de a sua vida ser melhor utilizando esses passos, hão-de aparecer problemas e situações novas com que lidar. É importante manter o controle sobre a situação e não se deixar ir abaixo. Levante-se e lembre-se que tem um objetivo muito especial: Ser feliz.
  9. Esteja sempre presente na vida das pessoas que o amam e lhe querem bem. Eles fornecem a estrutura e a força para enfrentar as situações difíceis. Nunca se esqueça que seu mais amigo já passou por tudo. Jesus é seu maior aliado na felicidade. Converse com ele todos os dias ao levantar-se da cama.
  10. SEJA FELIZ!

A custom-made guitar played by John Lennon and George Harrison, of The Beatles, has sold for $408,000 (£269,000) at auction.

The famous instrument was given to Lennon’s friend Alexis ‘Magic Alex’ Mardas as a 25th birthday in 1967.

Mardas eventually sold the guitar in 2004 but it still has a plaque on the back which reads: ‘To Magic Alex/ Alexi thank you/ for been a friend/ 2-5-1967 John [sic]’.

The electric guitar, manufactured by VOX, was played by Lennon during the video for Hello, Goodbye in 1967, while Harrison used it to play I Am The Walrus on the Magical Mystery Tour in the same year.

The California-based auction house Julien’s Auctions has not revealed the identity of the buyer in New York this weekend.

The auction took place at the Hard Rock Café…

Kicking up a stink: Poyet was not impressed by the prankster (Picture: Getty)

The proverbial has really hit the fan at Brighton in recent days.

Knocked out of the play-offs by bitter rivals Crystal Palace and their manager Gus Poyet suspended, considering his future and under fire from one of his own players – it really has been an unseemly end to a season that promised so much at one stage.

But now things have got even messier for Albion after it was revealed that excrement was found on the floor of the Palace dressing room before the 2-0 play-off semi-final second-leg victory for the Eagles at the Amex Stadium on Monday night.

Brighton have launched an investigation into the incident while Poyet circulated an angry email to staff claiming the culprit may have inadvertently fired up Ian Holloway’s visitors.

Smell of success: Ian Holloway’s Palace put their unseemly…
