New rukkle.tv – This Week On The Internet
On the latest episode of rukkle.tv…
Dave Alsybury takes a look back at some of the most talked about stories online this week, along with some of the stories that caught his attention…
Chris Brown And Drake Had A Fight Where Innocent People Got Hurt
One of the biggest celebrity stories this week involves Chris Brown and the rapper Drake who got into a fight at a New York nightclub early on Thursday morning.
Amidst all the punching and bottle throwing, an innocent by-standing Australian tourist named Hollie C. was badly hurt. She told TMZ…
“Within a few moments of noticing glass being thrown around, I saw a glass bottle headed towards me; consequently hitting me in the head. I immediately started to bleed and proceeded to fall in and out of consciousness.”
It also appears that Brown has a gash on his chin, his bodyguard Big Pat’s big head was spraying blood everywhere, and everyone is saying it’s somehow Rihanna-related (because she may have boned Drake one time).
I would write more words, but I… really, really, really don’t care. If you wanna know more, you can find out ALL about it here.
The Insane @Sweden Twitter Rant
Sweden’s Twitter experiment, which gives a different citizen control of the country’s @Sweden account each week, has gone from politically inspired to politically incorrect.
Only a day after the New York Times posted an article about the country’s Twitter initiative, the current curator, 27-year-old Sonja Abrahamsson, decided it would be a great open forum for her to discuss “The Jews” and even include Nazi references. She began by tweeting…
Before WW2 Hitler was one of the most beautiful names in the whole wide world. I know. Its as chocking as dolphin rapists.

Not exactly what you want to hear from a country that has recently been described by the president of the European Jewish Congress as a center of anti-Semitism.
Sonja, who we’ll remind you was tweeting from a government account on behalf of an entire nation, did not stop there. BuzzFeed have a post which contains all the highlights, but some of my own personal favourites include…
Whats the fuzz with jews. You can’t even see if a person is a jew, unless you see their penises, and even if you do, you can’t be sure!?

Where I come from there is no jews. I guess its a religion. But why were the nazis talking about races? Was it a blood-thing (for them)?

So, before we move on, just in case you were wondering, Sonja is STILL in charge of the account, none of the above tweets have been deleted as of yet and one of her latest discussions centres around Breastfeeding in public. You could not actually make this sh*t up.
Here I am, breastfeeding my son and publicly offending an air hockey table at Liseberg, Gothenburg.yfrog.com/oc33882984j

Spider-Man Technology A REALITY!
Ever wanted to get your hands on some REAL superhero technolgy? Hold on to your hat my friend! Without achieving quite the same stealth as Spiderman, US engineering students have nonetheless found a way to climb a wall (check it out above).
Powered by vacuums, the “Ascending Aggies” team from Utah State University built a wall-crawler called the ‘Personal Vacuum Assisted Climber’ (PVAC). The invention, which is designed to help commandos scale tall buildings without stepping into a vehicle or picking up a grappling hook, was created for an Air Force competition.
The team of engineering students out-competed groups from 16 other universities to win the Air Force Research Laboratory’s annual Design Challenge, earning $50,000 in grant money along with a chance to win double that.
Two Of This Weeks Events Highlights
The 2012 Baby Jumping Festival
El Colacho aka The Baby Jumping Festival is a traditional Spanish festival dating back to 1620 that takes place annually to celebrate the Catholic feast of Corpus Christi. A man dresses up as the devil and jumps over babies on a mattress.
The 2012 Incredible Surfing Dog Challenge
Surf-loving dogs (and their owners) gathered yesterday in San Diego, California for the annual Incredible Surf Dog Challenge. The competition was divided into three categories – small dogs, large dogs and “tandem” (dogs and their owners).
