Amazing Flat Screen TV Cost $1.7M

Image
A British TV maker by the name Titan is on the edge of breaking world record for producing the most expensive Flat Screen TV. The size of the TV is roughly the size of a football goal measuring about  370-inch, and it’s perhaps more apt describing this thing in meters – it’s 8m x 5m, for the record.
The TV sports 65 billion colors and weighs almost a tonne. And the cost actually excludes installation and delivery, which happens via a custom-built Hummer.
 The sad part is only four of the products is being manufactured and two is already sold, one was bought by a “British media millionaire”, while the other will sit on top of a hotel in Cannes, France.
The two remaining will be made-to-order once they’ve confirmed your genuine interest – this conversation starts when you email them on: hello@titanscreens.com.

Freemason's Secret Temple disovered in South Africa's Parliament

Image
Cape Town - On the grounds of Parliament, close to Tuynhuys in the heart of Cape Town, is an old, white, plastered building.
The Lodge De Goede Hoop is hidden behind a parking lot filled with shiny ministerial cars.
Only the Freemason symbol on the window and the Star of David above the large wooden doors show that this is not just another parliamentary building.
The building was inaugurated as the first masonic temple in South Africa in 1803 and is still used daily by its members.
This week, City Press took a tour of the temple with the newly appointed Grand Master of the SA Freemasons, Geoff Edwards.
On a table in the foyer are a square and a pair of compasses – well-known masonic symbols. On the wall is an engraved list of the names of former masters and the wall beside the front door is adorned with a framed photograph of Watty Watson, former DA chief whip and retiring Grand Master.
“People say we’re on parliamentary grounds, but that’s not true. Actually, Parliament is o…
