Logo promo caused epileptic seizures

‘A video clip promoting the 2012 London Olympic Games logo was removed from the organisers’ website overnight after reports it had triggered epileptic fits.

The video clip showed a diver plunging into a pool as part of a campaign to promote the jagged Olympic logo, a graffiti-like blow-up of the number 2012 in a range of colours including hot pink and electric blue.

A London 2012 spokeswoman said the concerns surrounded a four-second piece of animation shown at the logo’s launch yesterday and recorded by broadcasters.

“This concerns a short piece of animation which we used as part of the logo launch event and not the actual logo,” she said.

“It was a diver diving into a pool which had multi-colour ripple effects.”

Critics of the emblem have described it as “hideous”, while organisers called it powerful and modern.’

Yesterday I posted something about the ugly logo they’ve come up with for the 2012 Olympics in London and mentioned how a goatse alternative logo got some air time. Well, here’s the video. :)

London unveils logo of 2012 Games

‘The logo for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics has been unveiled in a star-studded ceremony in London.

The jagged emblem, based on the date 2012, comes in a series of shades of pink, blue, green and orange and will evolve in the run-up to the Games.

The word London and the Olympic rings are included in the first two digits of the new logo.

“This is the vision at the very heart of our brand,” said London 2012 organising committee chairman Seb Coe.’

The logo is pretty ugly. Someone submitted their own version of a logo which is hilarious and got a bit of exposure on the BBC’s website.

Ancient coin shows Cleopatra was no beauty

‘Antony and Cleopatra — one of history’s most romantic couples — were not the great beauties that Hollywood would have us believe, according to British academics.

A study of a 2,000-year-old silver coin found the Egyptian queen, famously portrayed by a sultry Elizabeth Taylor, had a shallow forehead, pointed chin, thin lips and sharp nose.

On the other side, her Roman lover, played in the 1963 movie by Richard Burton, Taylor’s husband at the time, had bulging eyes, a hook nose and a thick neck.

History has depicted Cleopatra as a great beauty, befitting a woman who as Queen of Egypt seduced Julius Caesar, and then his rival Mark Antony.

But the coin, which goes on show on Wednesday at Newcastle University for Valentine’s Day, after years lying in a bank, is much less flattering about both famous faces.’

The Ugly Face of Crime

`Not only are physically unattractive teenagers likely to be stay-at-homes on prom night, they’re also more likely to grow up to be criminals, say two economists who tracked the life course of young people from high school through early adulthood.

“We find that unattractive individuals commit more crime in comparison to average-looking ones, and very attractive individuals commit less crime in comparison to those who are average-looking,” claim Naci Mocan of the University of Colorado and Erdal Tekin of Georgia State University.

Mocan and Tekin analyzed data from a federally sponsored survey of 15,000 high-schoolers who were interviewed in 1994 and again in 1996 and 2002. One question asked interviewers to rate the physical appearance of the student on a five-point scale ranging from “very attractive” to “very unattractive.”

These economists found that the long-term consequences of being young and ugly were small but consistent. Cute guys were uniformly less likely than averages would indicate to have committed seven crimes including burglary and selling drugs, while the unhandsome were consistently more likely to have broken the law.’

Rev. Willie F. Wilson’s Sermon on Homosexuality

`Lebianism ’bout to take over our comminuty .. I’m talkin’ about YOUNG GIRLS!

My son in high school last year, trying to go to the prom, he said “Dad, I ain’t got nobody to take to the prom because all the girls in my class are gay, and ain’t but two of them straight and both of dem ugly.”‘

And it gets so much better. :)

`Anytime somebody gotta slap some grease on your behind dere’s somethin’ wrong wid dat. YOUR BUTT AIN’T MADE FOR DAT! [..]

No wonder yo behind is bleedin’!’
