Top 5 DANGEROUS cities in the WORLD!

OK, so i basically got this idea when i was browsing through my friend's website, about a huge volcano that has disastrous effects even now. And I thought to myself, "what places in the world, must a person avoid if they're planning to take a shot at immortality?" And lo and behold! I got the information and now its up to you to read them, if you wanna go there just for the thrill of it, knock yourself out... but if I were you, I would most definitely avoid it!
So here goes, hope you don't live there! :P (Just kidding!)



5. Cape Town. South Africa.
62 killings per 100 000 residents
Cape Town
Crime has been a major problem in South Africa (both for locals and travelers) for many years now, and the murder and robbery statistics loom large in today's society. 

4. New Orleans. The USA.

95 killings per 100 000 residents
New Orleans
The homicide rate in New Orleans ranks way above other American cities and towns, and therefore the city has been named the murder capital of the USA.

3. Caracas. Venezuela.

130 killings per 100 000 residents
Caracas
Another unsafe destination among world's most dangerous cities is Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. 

2. Ciudad Juárez. Mexico

130 killings per 100 000 residents
Ciudad Juárez
Also Mexico, one of the world's greatest travel destinations thanks to its fascinating history and stunning natural sites, is, unfortunately, facing a serious problem of robbery, kidnapping, sexual assault and drug-related crimes. 

AND GET READY FOR.....

1. Mogadishu. Somalia.

more killings than you can count...
Mogadishu
The governments' warnings about traveling to Somalia are unanimous: this African country remains extremely dangerous and there is an enormous risk to anyone's security due to the threat of terrorism, clan-based and ethnic fighting as well as high level of kidnapping and piracy off the coast.
Now, that one, You should definitely avoid!

Largest ball of "Magnetic Tape!"


largest ball of magnetic tape On the morning of Wednesday 19th January 2011 the data storage firm EMC had planned to break yet another Guinness World Records title with the largest ball of magnetic tape. As part of EMC’s global initiative, they have already achieved success in Singapore for the most vinyl records broken in 30 seconds (team) and the most people crammed into a new mini cooper in New York. With both these Guinness World Records under EMC’s belt, the pressure was now on for their third and final record to be broken.
Tarika Vara arrived at Kings Place Gallery in Central London to adjudicate a brand new record attempt for the largest ball of magnetic tape. She had been given several measurements of its current weight and dimensions and was keen to see what it looked in its final state.
She arrived into the gallery she was taken back by the sheer size of the giant ball, as it hung from a measuring device, elevated from the ground. It had been made using only data tape which can be found in cassette or VHS tape, by a group of students and engineers in the space of only three weeks!
She was able to talk to a few of the students who were present to see if their efforts had secured them a place in the history books with Guinness World Records. They had informed me what a pleasure it was coming together for what they described as an ‘unusual record’ and were glad to be a part of EMC’s attempt as it was the first time this had been attempted.
largest ball of magnetic tape After assessing the quality of the ball and viewing all of the dimensions of it as well as witnessing it being measured, she was able to confirm that the largest ball of magnetic tape is 2.125 metres in width, 2.030 metres in height and weighs an astounding 580kg making it a brand new Guinness World Records achievement for EMC!

Taylor Swift!♥

Here is a small extract from Taylor Swift's Life (Her autobiography).

"Hi, I'm Taylor. I've been alive for 20 years now, and I finally have my own kitchen. I'm very excited about this, and generally excited by anything else that falls into the "cute" or "cozy" categories. I learned to play guitar when I was twelve from this guy named Ronnie who came over to fix my parents' computer. I like quilts. But that's probably because I'm always freezing cold. I LOVE Nashville. That's where I live, when I'm lucky enough to be there. I love the town so much, I sometimes feel like I should just roll the windows down in my car (nicknamed the Toyoat. Because it's a Toyota) and scream "I LOVE THIS TOWN" loudly out the windows. That wouldn't be weird, right? Every time I try and wink at someone, I mess it up and end up scaring people. My lucky number always has been and always will be 13. It pops up in front of me in the most obvious and undeniable ways, but only when something good is about to happen. I'm a Sagittarius. I think that means I'm always looking for something new. I over-think and over-plan and over-organize. I've been like this since I was a baby, before I was gigantically tall and over-talkative."


"Lately I've come to a wonderful realization that makes me even more fascinated by it: I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to love. No one does! There's no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us, of course. I can't plan for it. I can't predict how it'll end up. Because love is unpredictable and it's frustrating and it's tragic and it's beautiful. And even though there's no way to feel like I'm an expert at it, it's worth writing songs about -- more than anything else I've ever experienced in my life. "


"I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I've just added more things to my list. Like for example, I'm still beyond obsessed with the winter season and I still start putting up strings of lights in September. I still love sparkles and grocery shopping and really old cats that are only nice to you half the time. I still love writing in my journal and wearing dresses all the time and staring at chandeliers. But some new things I've fallen in love with -- mismatched everything. Mismatched chairs, mismatched colors, mismatched personalities. I love spraying perfumes I used to wear when I was in high school"


"I'm pretty stroked that you read the whole thing. I commend you for that. This was ridiculously long, and you probably have other stuff you could've done in the last four minutes. So to you, or anyone else who has spent four minutes on me in some way-- listening to just one song, or watching one of my videos….Thank you. I love you like I love sparkles and having the last word. And that's real love."
--Taylor.
