Tens of thousands of students opposing the increases in tuition fees announced by the coalition government in October 2010, protested in the streets of London.
Actualizing the fantasy of three generations of liberals, in November Britain’s students took over the Tory HQ. It was all good fun until someone tried to kill a police officer with a fire extinguisher. This began a two-month period of pitched battles between the police and Britain’s youth.
It was said to be only a minority who began to vandalize, but the media spread these images far and wide.
Below, VBS.com reported on what went down during the riot, from the perspective of the students who where not there to cause trouble.
‘Alive’ is a cool little snowboard film featuring The Burn Units, a rider-led initiative headed by the legendary Austrian snowboarder Gigi Rüf, Norwegian freestyle prodigy Ståle Sandbech and ultra-smooth French sensation Arthur Longo.
Filmed in Vorarlberg, Austria at Gigi’s uncle’s cabin last December, this projects was a pretty large production, shooting back country action by electric light and moonlight. As Director Per-Hampus Stålhandske put it, “there are so many things that can go wrong when you make a snowboard film: the weather, the snow, the light, the riders… adding darkness and studio lights to the mix was a huge risk, but mother nature was with us every step of the way. An amazing experience.”
Although rare, it is known for animals to be born with two heads. It has even happened to large farm animals such as two-headed cows, sheep and pigs. However, these animals normally only survive for a short time.
On the other hand, two headed reptiles have been known to live for as long as 20 years. There are a number of two headed snakes on display in zoos and even private residences around the world. As they share one body it doesn’t matter which head eats, but owners try to feed both heads so neither feels left out. Freaky!
Here at Shock Mansion we fairly obviously love tattooing. So we decided to create a little inspiration post for all the tattoo lovers out there. This is something we’ll probably do more of in the future, showcasing amazing artwork and the artists behind them. Enjoy.

Eddie, clearly a ladies man, does the most romantic front flip I have ever seen. I wonder if he had a couple warm up hoops before he left home that day. Is it fake? Maybe. Should the Wizards G-Man get replaced with Eddie? Maybe. Do I drink my own urine? Once again, maybe. Hit the jump for more half-time shenanigans.

For the past few weeks, rumors circulated around the winter world that snowboard icon Shaun White was adding another sport to his quickly diversifying portfolio: rally racing. Wednesday, he confirmed those rumors. Sort of.
At a Winter X Games news conference recently, White announced that he signed a multiyear deal with BFGoodrich Tires. Over the next few months, 30-second commercials featuring White learning to buckle a five-point harness, learning to drive stick (yes, for the first time) and practicing drifting and cornering on a private track at an abandoned airport in Orange County will be released. White and his brother, Jesse, also designed a Vermont SportsCar rally car that Shaun will train in later this year. “It’s got a gold lightning bolt and the number 86,” White says. “Because that’s the year I was born.”
