5 Killer Parties in The World

Whether or now you are a party animal, there have surely been some parties that you would like to relive. There have also been celebrations that left you not only out of order the next morning, but also wishing there would be a sequel. Now when you take those parties and multiply their fun factor by thousands, you get a glimpse of some of the best parties on Earth. While everyone knows about the famous Rio de Janeiro Carnival, there are other monster parties that have such unique concepts and exquisite planning, you’re bound to plan at least one vacation in your life around them. Here are 5 killer parties around the world.

We know we already presented some of them in our previous post about Insane Festivals, but these parties are too awesome to miss.

Holi in Uttar Pradesh

holi

The beginning of spring is heralded all over India when the youth are allowed to give color and express their feelings during the Holi festival. Held in Uttar Pradesh, this festival marks the triumph of good over evil and is celebrated with fervor and enthusiasm. (in Indian culture, Holika, the sister of the demon Hiranya Kashyap, carried Prahlad the youngest son of God in her lap inside the burning pyre, but through the grace of God she was burnt and Prahlad survived)

Festivities last for more than a week and its main beauty lies in the fact that participants sprinkle colored water and water powder over one and other, turning the city and each other into a beautiful rainbow of colors. Moreover, in Braj, festivities also allow women of the village to beat their men with cudgels (in memory of the Gopis chasing the Gopas of Nandgaon away with “lathis”) and shower them with colored water in their expression of joy.

Copenhagen Distortion

main

This festival takes place on the streets of Copenhagen as well as many other unusual locations and represents the ultimate block-party. Starting on the first Saturday of June, the festival is centered around contemporary art, street life, dance music, club culture and social art. It features more than 150 dance floors hosted by prominent icons of night- and street life (galleries, shops, magazines, people). It has an atmosphere of high-energy chaos that has a street freedom feeling to it. Lasting 5 days, festivities take place in a new neighborhood each day and concludes in a massive rave.

La Tomatina, Spain

Thought only children have fun when playing with food? Think again. This popular Spanish party is considered the largest food fight worldwide. It is so large that in Bunol, the city where it takes place, tomato juice fills the streets. It is held on the last Wednesday of August and begins in the town square, where participants try to retrieve a piece of ham tied to a pole. When the beginning of the festival is signaled, countless trucks filled with tomatoes appear, and, with the new found ammunition, the enormous food fight takes place until the end of the event.

Oktoberfest, Germany

oktoberfest-bcb2084db6323c11

We all know how serious Germans are about their beer, and it seems only befitting that they create a whole festival where beer is the focus. Lasting 17 or 18 days (between September and the first Sunday of October, so when it falls on the 1st or 2nd of October, the festival lasts until the 3rd of October- German Unity day), this festival gathers more than 6 million people from around the world and is the largest Volksfest in the world. The beer served may only be brewed within the limits of Munich and needs to conform to the Purity Law of beer in Germany.

Bay to Breakers, California

This annual footrace in San Francisco has participants running 12 kilometers from The Embarcadero (at the San Francisco Bay) to the Great Highway (next to the Pacific coast). However, they make this run while wearing ridiculous costumes and engaging in different degrees of public nudity. Running through the streets is not only liberating but morale lifting. Many participants say that it’s the only race where you actually forget about the running and simply have fun.

10 Insane Festivals Around the World

Humans have a habit of celebrating the most insignificant things on the planet, and who would blame them when they are searching for beauty in different places? There are several major festivals that draw immense crowds every year. Who wouldn’t love to see a Rio de Janeiro Brazilian beauty, or take part in the sophisticated Venetian masked one? Nevertheless, not all festivals in the world are as beautiful as these ones. There are some truly insane ones that will make you want to barricade yourself in the house until the festivities are over. Let’s take a look at 10 truly insane festivals around the world. We warn you that some of them are not for the faint of heart.

The Thaipuism Festival

If you are interested in a freak-show then you should definitely attend the Thaipuism Festival. It is basically a great Hindu Gathering, celebrated in southern India where some of the most hardcore pierced people go. According to practitioners, the more pain your pierce inflicts, the more blessed you will be. But the sadistic behavior doesn’t stop here. Some partakers also pull tractors or heavy objects with the hooks in their skin. Ew!

Bolas de Fuego

2

Here’s a little trivia for you: at the turn of the 20th century a volcano almost completely destroyed the town of Nejapa. Since then, the residents of the village have held an appropriate festival to celebrate their survival. They throw flaming rags at one another. Doesn’t that sound absolutely lovely?

Near Death Festival

3

I still can’t quite wrap my head around this one. The Fiesta de Santa Marta de Ribarteme is also known under the name of the Near Death Festival. It is dedicated to the Patron saint of resurrection, and during it, people who have experience a near-death experienced are carried around in coffins to express their gratitude.

La Tomatina

4

Granted, you may have heard about this festival before, but this doesn’t make it any less gross. Seriously, what is it with people and tomato fights? This insane festival takes place every year in the town of Bunyol Spain. The goal is to cover the entire town in tomatoes until the fire department comes to wash it all away.

Holi Festival

5

This festival has gained quite the attention in the past few years. By this point you are already accustomed to people throwing stuff and smearing themselves at insane festivals, so the Holi one will not shock you. It may sound insane to throw colored powder at other people, but at least the result is beautiful. If you are interested in it you should visit India during spring. At the moment, the festival is being held in different locations, and is accompanied by amazing music.

Night of the Radishes

5

Here’s a truly unusual festival: the Night of Radishes. No, nobody will be throwing radishes in the crowd. This particular festival is actually quite peaceful. It happens before Christmas in Mexico. During it, different vendors display their over-sized radishes and proceed to sculpt them. It’s like artwork for vegans.

The Running of the Bulls

6

The fact that this festival is extremely popular doesn’t make it any less insane. People who are over 18 years and sober can participate in the run of their lives. Why would anyone volunteer to be chased by a pack of enraged bulls?

The Moose Dropping Festival

7

As you may very well know, the Moose is the Alaskan State’s official animal. To celebrate it, a festival where moose poop is dropped onto targets from a hot air balloons is organized. No joke.

Goose Pulling Festival

8

On one day of the year, somewhere in Germany or the Netherlands, the Goose Pulling Festival happens. The objective is to pull off the head of a goose that hangs from a wire, before anybody else. (Don’t worry, it’s already dead).

Goat Tossing Festival

9

If you have a Steam account you have probably already tried the Goat simulator. This festival is very similar to the game. In the small Spanish town of Maganeses de la Polvorosa a strange thing happens: young boys find a goat, tie it up and throw it from the church belfry. The other participants are supposed to catch it.

How to Hammer a Nail into Something

The Most Pointless How-To Guides on the Internet

If you’d like, you can even watch an interesting YouTube video on this subject. It is a great watch. Most of the online how-to guides on this subject wisely point out that you need to hold the end of the wooden handle type of thing on the hammer rather than the head.

How to Stop Reading Stupid Articles

The Most Pointless How-To Guides on the Internet

The fact that you have got this far into this great article proves that you have got a degree of taste and, hey, intelligence. However, in the modern world this isn’t always enough, is it? There are probably times when even someone as cool as you ends up reading stupid articles. You might start off reading something useful but after clicking on one hyperlink too many you could end up struggling through a blog post about Justin Bieber’s latest piece of belly button fluff or how Kim Kardashian wore a new skirt yesterday that made her rear end look fractionally smaller or bigger than it looked yesterday.

How to Butter Bread

The Most Pointless How-To Guides on the Internet

Have you ever had a regrettable bread buttering incident ruin your breakfast? I guess this could happen but the only sensible piece of advice I could give on the subject is to not use frozen butter. Of course, that’s why no one lets me write pointless how-to articles. Other people have managed to wring a lot more mileage out of this seemingly banal subject. Again, there is a pretty classy YouTube video if you would like to see someone actually buttering the bread in front of your eyes as proof it can really be done. The wikihow article on the matter is a bit of cop out though, as the pictures clearly show a piece of toasted bread being buttered, which we all know is easier to do than buttering non-toasted bread.

Famous Femme Fatale Figures that Could Charm the Life Out of You

Even if the media insists on portraying women, sometimes, as naïve and vulnerable creatures who need all the help they can get, popular lore and culture also occasionally depicts women as devious and dangerous. There are many ways in which women can be dangerous and deadly: either by being downright skilled in battle and badass, or through more subtle means pertaining to seduction. A femme fatale is a woman you can’t resist, that uses her charm and feminine allure to obtain her often hidden purpose. Although typically conceived as a villain, a femme fatale may be a victim herself, or may try to help others or the greater good through her questionable methods. So while calling femme fatale figures evil may be an overstatement, morally ambiguous would be a more appropriate label. If the femme fatale archetype would be a computer game character, it would display a chaotic neutral alignment, let’s say.

Ever since Delilah, the biblical femme fatale that continued to inspire people to this day (if Tom Jones is to be given credit for trying), the figure of this somewhat ruthless seductress is still a fascinating topic for a whole array of narratives. Here are a few of the most famous femme fatale figures that history and fiction have to offer.

1. Mata Hari

1

She is possibly the best known femme fatale figure that was also a real historical person and her story was so scandalous and well-known to the masses in the WWII period that it would just be improper not to start this short list with her. Mata Hari (born Margaretha Geertruida Zeele) was a Dutch educated woman who moved to the Dutch East Indies after getting married young (as was the custom). There, disappointed in her abusive husband, she found solace in studying the Indonesian and Malay language and arts. After a while, she moved to Paris and became an exotic dancer under the stage name of Mata Hari (which means “sun” in Malay). She is considered to be one of the first modern dance artists and the first one to attempt her kind of oriental-inspired moves and costumes, and with such a high degree of skin exposure. In other words, the woman was scandalous. The scandal grew even bigger when, during the WWWII, she was arrested and executed by the French troops for being a secret agent and spy for the German forces. The truth of the accusation remains unknown, but the tale contributed to her femme fatale aura and lit up the imagination of the public to this day.

2. Delilah

What would a list of famous femme fatale figures be without the original one, Delilah? Delilah, unlike many of the Bible’s characters, wasn’t yet proven to be based on any historical person and therefore passes as completely fictional. Her very name means “[she who] weakened” and her story is told as a warning to men not to fall prey to devastating charms, or else look what might happen. The infamous deed that put the “fatal” in the femme fatale in this case is the fact that she betrayed Samson, the powerful man who loved her, and cut his hair thus magically removing all of his strength.

3. The Siren

3

Another popular theme that continues to be prominent in popular culture today is the siren. Everyone’s familiar to the beautiful sea maids with a lower fish body that sing sailors to their deaths, but not many know that folklore sometimes meets historical rumors with surprising creativity. For example, the whole branch of Luxembourgish royalty claimed, in old times, to have Melusina, a powerful river mermaid, as their ancestor. Together with her husband, Count Siegfried, they founded the city of Luxembourg’s castle and court. If her supernatural origin were to be true, that would make her the ancestor of not only Luxembourg, but of most other branches of European royal families as well, including the ruling British Queen Elisabeth. Puts a nice perspective on Prince Harry’s fascinating charms, doesn’t it?

4. Morgan le Fay

This time, we’re exploring Irish and Welsh mythology. Although Morgan le Fay is mainly known as King Arthur’s evil half-sister and sorceress, in Irish lore she is called Morrigaine and she’s something between a banshee and the leader of the (mostly good) fairies.

5. Eve

5

No list of famous femme fatale figures could be complete without the lovely temptress who doomed and bore us all: Eve and her lovely red apple. The scene of Adam’s seduction has been the subject of numerous paintings and literary pieces and continues to fascinate to this day.
