Most Expensive Prostitute in The World + [Picture and Story]

15 Sep
I read a story that i will love to share today, not because i stand for it, i absolutely don’t, but you see in every thing in life there are lessons to be extracted, i hope you learn something from this.
Raffella Fico is a 21 year old Italian model hoping to sell her virginity for one million Euros. Yes, that’s right. She has publicly declared that she’d have sex for the first time with anyone willing to give her a million bucks for the privilege and pleasure of deflowering her. Maybe she’s thinking that since virginity is something you can only lose once, might as well lose it for a big paycheck…

In this world where whores are widely available, and many of them more attractive than Miss Fico, it is funny that she would have the temerity to tag herself at such a price… I can’t say I have checked, but I don’t think even virgin whores could command such a price…

The thing is, I am pretty sure someone would take her up on her offer. Even if this particular deal doesn’t work out, our outrageous world has shown us that it is reasonable to expect a similar deal at other times involving other persons to be successfully transacted.

Now, how do we explain this? How do you price a service which has a going rate of a few thousand bucks at most at $ 1,000,000.00?

It’s not like there’s a shortage in the supply of prostitutes. Doesn’t such an act debunk everything we have ever learnt about the economic theory of demand and supply? Who the hell does she think she is by asking for so much? It’s not like you can get cured of cancer if you have sex with her…

But the theory of demand and supply has proven to be sound in the history of mankind, and we are not about to let this one case throw it out the window. So our job is to explain this seeming insanity within the confines of Economic Theory.

Think about it; under what circumstances would you pay a million bucks for a whore? (Disregard moral issues for the moment and pretend/assume/acknowledge for now that you are a regular hooker connoisseur).

If you were in a back alley, and there were ten hookers all with similar attractiveness and all free of STDs, it is likely that Price would be the deciding factor in your choice of companion for the night. So, under that circumstance, it would be near impossible for any single one of them to ask for more than the going rate, let alone a million bucks.

So, point number one is:- Differentiation. You must not mingle with your competitors. You must stand out. Do not let your product/service appear like a commodity (although it actually is). Make it seem special. Advertise this way; Like Mike Murdock will say: we are not celebrated because of our similarities but for our differences, so what difference are you bringing into the market place?

The problem with the back alley as a place to do business is this:- Even if the customer is willing to pay more, he won’t, because the market price is already set. Even if he comes with a million bucks, the moment he sees everyone selling at a hundred, he will just pay a hundred. Why Pay More?

Point number two is:- Create a new marketing platform. Don’t wait for customers by the street like everyone else; go to the media and advertise through them! Which self-respecting newspaper would neglect to publish a story about a million-dollar-virginity-auction? Free Publicity! Be creative!

And now, we come to the third and most important point. HUMANS ARE EGOTISTICAL MANIACS. We pay through our noses for that little bit more prestige, that little bit more status.

Imagine this:-

A group of men sit around in a pub, drinking and talking trash. Then someone starts to talk about his experience with hookers, and the conversation veers towards commercial sex. As they speak, the news comes up on TV, and there is a report that a virgin selling her virginity for a million bucks is now no longer a virgin. The deal has been done. And who is the mysterious deflowerer?…

One of the men in the group who has kept quiet all this while slowly stands up. He brushes his fingers through his hair, stubs his cigarette in the ashtray, and coolly walks out of the room, with a twisted smile on his face. The moment he steps out of the room, his face appears on the newscast. Deflowerer revealed. The other guys wonder in awe…

But the point is, by being a little creative and by playing on the psychology of people, it’s always possible to make a little extra money. The whore was going to whore herself anyway; why not get more out of it?…

Release yourself from the notion that the price of something is the going rate in the market place. The market price is just the Minimum Possible Price of an item, when it is stripped of all sexiness and allure.

The true price of something is how much you could get people to pay you for it. And the thing that can add layers of inferred value to something ordinary is Creative Bullshit (CB). Packaging (I’m not just talking about plastic wrappers) can make people feel so good about buying.

There’s nothing really out of this world about having  sex with an inexperienced Italian model. But put a twist on it, and you get a million bucks

Everything depends on Sentiment. Can you be creative about your product or services? make it stand out! One nigerian comedian brings out the point here, that the difference between plantain chips and ‘gbekere’ is the packaging, thats true, you will not be priced above your packaging so step up the game and let me quickly add here in some positive things that adds value.

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

7 Sep

Sennheiser’s long-awaited (seven years) HD800 sure isn’t subtle—at least, not in appearance. The HD800’s large earpieces are made from a combination of absorbing composites and functional metal accents, and are huge. Of course, they have to be to house the 56mm ring-radiator transducers—and to mount them so they’re firing “back” to your ears from the front. Also not subtle is the price: $1399.95.

 

On the other hand, Sennheiser wasn’t going for subtle improvements in designing and building the HD800. After all, they’d already tried subtle when they introduced the HD650 as an improvement on the HD600. Most headphone fanciers refer to the two as a “slash” product, as in HD600/650. Justifiably.

No, in designing the HD800, Sennheiser was aiming at a game-changer, a paradigm-shifter—an überheadphone, if you will. Did they succeed? Well, let’s kick the tires a bit.

Feeling’s getting stronger
Not a single component from the HD600/650 has survived in the HD800. In addition to the machined stainless-steel earpieces, the HD800 also sports stainless-steel mesh, Leona (a rigid plastic used to damp the steel), and extremely pliable earpad cushions of a special micro-fiber inspired by the luxury auto industry—think Maserati, Lamborghini, et al. The headband that connects the earpieces is laminated from steel and plastic and is covered in more micro-fiber.

The HD800’s Y-cable harness uses braided, Kevlar-reinforced OFC copper wire. The cable is covered with a fabric sheath, making it flexible and non-microphonic. The cable is terminated to a very substantial ¼” phono plug at one end, and two proprietary Sennheiser connectors at the earpieces. These new connectors—which provide far more substantial termination than Sennheiser’s old two-prong mini-connector—should eliminate the dreaded “Sennheiser jiggle” that has become second nature to those of us who’ve used our HD600/650s hard over the years.

About that 56mm transducer: It’s the largest dynamic driver currently in use in any headphones. There’s a reason huge transducers aren’t often used in ‘phones, and that’s the difficulty in controlling big ‘uns, especially in the high frequencies. Sennheiser claims that their ring radiator solves that problem and produces “a very coherent waveform.” Additionally, by mounting the diaphragm forward, to fire back at the ears at a slight angle, they get it to mimic more closely what happens when you listen to live music or a conventional loudspeaker system (see Keith Howard’s “Between the Ears“).

All that metal and plastic results in a headphone that weighs 11.5 oz sans cable, yet the large earpads—which easily enclose my rather freakishly large ears—and clever damping and padding result in a set of ‘phones that I found comfortable for long listening sessions.

The HD800 has an impedance of 300 ohms, which puts it sort of in the middle between low-impedance portable headsets and 600 ohm studio cans. While many personal digital players can swing enough volts to drive the HD800, its bulk, weight, 3m cable, and ¼” plug suggest that Sennheiser isn’t catering to that crowd. But, like the man said, it’s your dog…

Although the HD800 is expensive at $1399.95, its fit’n’finish and construction are first-rate and seem to justify the price—and it’s hand-built in Wedemark, Germany, at Sennheiser’s worldwide headquarters.

Music’s getting longer, too
There will never be a single perfect set of headphones—or a perfect anything, for that matter—simply because different people require different things from them. If you need to use headphones because you need noise isolation, or if your current lifetime companion needs respite from your music, the open-backed HD800s will not serve. Just sayin’, is all.

Top Carbon Fiber iPhone Cases

6 Sep

Carbon fiber’s popularity in iPhone cases may be attributed to the material’s toughness and low density.

9 of The Most Beautiful Places Of The World!

5 Sep

We live in a world blessed with sights that are beautiful beyond words. Every human being probably dreams of visiting at least one of those places in their lifetime. Living in modern cities with high-rise buildings, we tend to miss out on what Mother Nature has to offer as well as some of the most incredible man-made structures built throughout the course of history.

Look at the places below, and you will see beauty that fills the eye and warms the heart. It wouldn’t be appropriate or humanly possible to just pick a few places from the huge collection of amazing sights around the world and call them the “best.”

They say that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” and there are perhaps other places that have touched your heart. For this reason, we do not claim the places included in our list are the best, but rather among the vast collection of the most beautiful places of the world.

The Grand Canyon, United States

The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon

A steep gorge by the Colorado River, Arizona in the United States, the Grand Canyon has some truly enjoyable scenery. It is 277 miles in length, 4 to 18 miles in width, and about a mile deep. Scientists believe that the canyon was created by the Colorado River over a six million year period.

The Grand Canyon

canyon_viewpoint

Native Americans built settlements in the caves within the canyon before the emigration of Europeans. It was also considered to be a site of pilgrimage by the Pueblo people. The first recorded visit to the Grand Canyon by the Europeans was in 1869. Although it is not the deepest canyon in the world, it is known for its extremely large size and beautifully intricate landscape. The Grand Canyon National Park is said to be one of the first national parks in the United States and it attracts more than five million visitors a year. Weather conditions in the Grand Canyon vary greatly between seasons as well as varying at different elevations. While winter snow is experienced by the higher forested rims, the inner gorge has a desert temperature because of the low elevation.

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia

One of the natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef off the east coast of Australia is the world’s largest coral reef. It has the distinction of being placed in the World Heritage as well as the National Heritage lists.

Great Barrier Reef

With more than 600 islands and coral cays, the reef covers more than 300,000 sq. km. Corals make up the reefs and cays and are responsible for a huge variety of sea life in the reef — green turtles, several varieties of whales and dolphins, the dugong, about 4000 types of mollusks, 1500 different species of fish, as well as beautifully colored bird life encompassing at least 200 species. The Great Reef Marine Park is a huge tourist attraction with millions of tourists visiting the area each year. Sporting activities include reef sailing, scuba diving, and snorkeling, amongst others.

Cape Town, South Africa

Aptly called “Heaven on earth,” this beautiful town at the tip of the African continent, with small roads surrounded by huge mountains, makes a person feel small; showing how marvelous and dominating nature can actually be.

The Cape Dutch style buildings depict the architectural heritage of the place. Beauty abounds in the black clouds that seem to pay homage to Table Mountain at all times. Cape Point, Signal Hill, Chapman’s Peak Drive, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Robben Island, Rhodes Memorial, and the beaches are some of the famous tourist attractions. Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town is famous for its natural floral kingdom as well as its harbor. This town is one of the most popular tourist attractions of South Africa with its wine tasting day trips, whale watching, and dolphin watching.

Taj Mahal, India

The Taj Mahal in India is one of the wonders of the world and is one of the most beautiful mausoleums constructed by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his favorite queen, Mumtaz Mahal. Located in Agra, white marble was used in the construction of this symbol of love, and the Taj Mahal is considered to be the pinnacle of Mughal architecture.

Taj Mahal

As the story goes, the emperor was grief-stricken when he lost his beloved third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It took thousands of craftsmen and artisans, and about twenty years to construct it. The masons, stone cutters, carvers, inlayers, calligraphers, painters, and others were brought from throughout the entire empire as well as from Iran and Central Asia. Semi-precious stones were used for inlay ornamentation. It later became the mausoleum of Shah Jahan too. This is a huge tourist attraction with one to two million tourists visiting it every year.

Canadian Rockies, Canada

The majestic Canadian Rockies are the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky Mountains. They are a visitor’s wonderland and the playground for western Canada. They are older than the American Rockies and are formed from over thrusting.

Glacier at Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rockies house five national parks, and four of those national parks (along with other provincial parks) combine to form a single UNESCO World Heritage Site that consists of beautiful mountain landscapes, lakes, canyons, waterfalls, glaciers, peaks, limestone caves, and fossils. Mount Robson is the highest peak of the Canadian Rockies and climbing it is considered a challenge. These beautiful mountains are a haven for hikers and walkers alike.

Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu in Peru, which means ‘Old Peak,” is one of the most enigmatic ancient sites in the world. According to legend, Machu Picchu was long ago considered to be a sacred place. The credit for the creation of the extraordinary city goes to the Inca people who have erected many stone structures and turned the place into a work of art.

Two thousand feet above the Urubamba river, these ruins consist of baths, temples, palaces, and about 150 houses, all very well preserved. These gray granite structures, some of which weigh more than 50 tons, are so perfectly sculpted that they are nothing less than works of architectural genius. They were rediscovered by a Yale archaeologist in 1911. The ethereal beauty, workmanship, and history of the place attracts millions of tourists each year.

The Pyramids, Egypt

The Egyptian pyramids are massive monuments with a square base and four triangular sides rising up to a point. There is still a lot of curiosity (and many theories) as to how the pyramids were actually constructed.

Pyramids of Egypt

It is generally believed that the Egyptians began constructing them after 2700 B.C. and that they were built as tombs for the pharaohs. The most well-known (and the largest) pyramids of Egypt are the Pyramids at Giza which are said to be the largest ever built. It’s said that the Great Pyramid at Giza took 23 years to complete, using a work force of around 30,000 people. About 118 pyramids have been identified, and they are popular and intriguing to tourists and home researchers alike.

Petra, Jordan

Described by the UNESCO as “one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage”, Petra is an archeological site on the slope of Mount Hor. It is one of the new wonders of the world and is famous for its rock-cut architecture.

This site was kept hidden until 1812 when it was discovered by a Swiss explorer. It was said to have been prepared by God for the Jewish people. Petra once flourished under the Roman empire but a rapid decline began with the Arabian trade being taken elsewhere. Then an earthquake caused a great deal of destruction. Tourists frequent the place to get a glimpse of the ruins of this beautiful city.

Great Wall of China, China

One of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Wall of China is a man-made structure that was constructed over two thousand years ago and took about 100 years to complete. The vastness of this project brings to light the immense capabilities of man.

Great Wall of China

The constructions started in the 5th Century B.C. It is actually not a single wall, but rather many walls put together, and it stretches over 4,000 miles. It was constructed to protect the Chinese Empire from the Xiongnu people in the north. The wall was initially built of stone, grass, earth, and wood, but bricks were used once the production started. It is believed that about 2-3 million Chinese died during the construction project.

The Iguazu Waterfalls, Argentina-Brazil Border

Heralded as the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, the Iguazu Waterfalls are a true wonder of nature. They are located at the border of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. While the Argentinean side allows visitors to walk right around the water or explore the National Park, the Brazilian side is known for its panoramic views and splendor.

First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt is believed to have exclaimed upon seeing these falls, “poor Niagara.” The area surrounding the falls provides ample opportunities for rock climbing as well as water sports. Iguazu has the distinction of having a greater annual flow than any other waterfall in the world.

With all of these, and many more beautiful places that exist in our world, we surrounded by choices. The only way to decide on the places to visit is to follow your heart. While some may love the tranquility of water, others may bury themselves deep in architectural miracles, ancient sites, or the serenity of a small town.

World's priciest food and drink

5 Sep

At US$25,000 this chocolate sundae is the world’s most expensive dessert. But how can an ice cream cost so much and what else is out there for people with expensive tastes?

Most expensive food and drink

The Frrozen Haute, shown in the photo to the left, is rated by Guinness as the world’s most expensive dessert. Costing US$25,000, it was created by Stephen Bruce, the owner of Manhattan restaurant Serendipity 3, and luxury jeweller Euphoria New York.

It contains 14 of the most expensive and exotic cocoas from across the world, 0.2 ounces of edible 23-carat gold, and a side of La Madeline au Truffe (described as “the most extravagant chocolate in the world”) from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for US$2,600 a pound.
You eat it with a gold spoon decorated with white- and chocolate-coloured diamonds and there’s an 18-carat gold bracelet with one carat of white diamonds around the base — both of which you get to keep.

However, it’s not the only edible item that costs thousands of dollars. We take a look at some of the world’s priciest food and booze.

Most Expensive Production Car in The World

4 Sep

If your passion for performance and luxury autos cannot be stopped, and your McLaren F1 is becoming a bore along with the rest of your exotic cars, it might be time to check out Top Gear’s “Car of the Decade,” the Bugatti Veyron. The most recent model, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, has an estimated price tag of $2.3 million and, if that figure is even close to the ultimate price, will be the most expensive car in the world.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport “World Record Edition”

The Super Sport, unveiled at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August 2010, is not your typical luxury car. Its W16 engine—essentially two narrow-angle V8s sharing a crankshaft—with four turbochargers generates 1,200 hp and, along with improved aerodynamics over the original Veyron, allows it to reach a top speed of 268 miles per hour. That makes the Super Sport the fastest production car in the world.

The original Bugatti Veyron 16.4, which entered production in 2005, hits 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, does the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds and reaches its top speed of 252 mph in just 55 secs. It came after a long absence from the market for Bugatti and helped the brand reclaim its title as the ultimate performance car and reign supreme as the world’s most expensive production car.

World's Most Expensive Car - The Bugatti Veyron 16.4
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4

The Veyron is named after Pierre Veyron, who won the 1939 24 Hours of Le Mans while driving a Bugatti Type 57 with Jean-Pierre Wimille.
