Vuvuzela fan?

Well, you're in luck!

Youtube has added an excellent feature to its videos.

Now Public has the details:

If you navigate to any Youtube video, like Bruce Lee's Green Hornet audition, for example, you'll notice a little soccer ball button at the right-hand side of the scrubber bar (that red line that tells you how far along the video is). Not just a generic soccer ball- it's the 2010 World Cup version.

Certain Shatner vids (e.g. Common People (Avant-garde's only genius)) also sport the soccer ball!

Chinese farmer declares war on property developers with homemade wheelbarrow cannon

A Chinese farmer is fighting off property developers who want his land, firing rockets from a homemade cannon made out of a wheelbarrow and pipes, state media said on Tuesday.

The Telegraph, June 8

Yang Youde, who lives on the outskirts of the bustling city of Wuhan, in central Hubei province, said he had fended off two eviction attempts with his improvised weapon, which uses ammunition made from locally sold fireworks.

"I shot only over their heads to frighten them," he told the China Daily of his attacks on demolition workers sent to move him off his land. "I didn't want to cause any injuries."
