If you've seen The Hangover or any of the countless films about bachelor parties in Las Vegas, you’ll know you’re in for a white knuckle ride of a send off from singledom in this hedonistic town. With champagne, showgirls and casinos galore – what man wouldn’t want to take his party on the road to Nevada’s naughty but nice entertainment capital of the world?
Booking in advance means that flights to Vegas are available on the cheap and it’s still possible to have a good time, even on a modest budget. Anything goes in Vegas and this includes things going wrong. Here’s five ways your bachelor party could turn sour…… and how to avoid this happening.
Partying the night before the big day This is the grooms last chance to let his hair down with his friends, so pick a date which will allow him to really have a good time without running the risk of a stinking hangover or even worse, missing his wedding. Allow ample time for recovery so that everyone can really let loose.
Going on A DIY trip to Vegas While planning ahead might not seem in the spirit of Vegas, being organised is essential to avoid disaster. With a tsunami of things to see and do on a 24/7 basis, it can be overwhelming. Having an idea or going places on a whim could lead to a host of things going wrong including standing in long queues, wandering the strip all night long, getting lost, separated from the group, being ripped off or landing up in some serious trouble. It’s advisable to book tables at pool parties, in restaurants, clubs, casinos, showgirls and reputable strip joints well in advance either by contacting the premises directly or by using a VIP Host Service, of which there are many. VIP hosts can provide passes so that you can waltz right in to the hottest clubs, casinos, restaurants and have a truly privileged experience. This will allow you to jump queues, coordinate your night, provide much needed transportation as well as access to local expertise to suit the profile of your group. Most of the town’s strip joints are not close to the casinos. They are located off the main drag, which means that a limo or charter van is an absolute necessity. While adult entertainment might not suit your party, if it is something your planning on then please take note – avoid being lured to clubs or joints by ladies you meet on the strip who will only charge you ridiculous prices for drinks or worse still, their time. And, if you don’t pay up things can get nasty, very quickly.
Spend, spend, spend Gambling and the prospect of winning big is what lures people to Vegas. It’s easy to get lost in the moment but don’t blow all your life savings otherwise you’ll have more than hangover to deal with the next day. It ain’t like it is in the movies, so you’re unlikely to win much money back. Don’t take out more money than you can afford to spend and know your limits. To avoid major credit/debit card charges, avoid withdrawing money in any of the casinos.
Do something permanent This includes tattoos or any form of body art as well as falling into the Chapel of Love to get married to the stripper. As much as it might seem like fun at the time, it really won’t be a laughing matter the next day.
Get Arrested Pranks, machismo, alcohol and loss of inhibition are not only the ingredients for most bachelor parties, it’s this combination that results in getting on the wrong side of the law.
While Vegas might be dubbed Sin City, it actually has a bonafide legal system and like any destination, its rules and regulations must be adhered to. Thousands of tourists are arrested each year and there’s no surprises that alcohol is usually involved. To avoid a night in the cell or longer, make sure no one in your group takes a dip in any of the Strips water attractions no matter how tempting, picks fight with bouncers, re-enter a casino after being asked to leave, urinate in public, pick up hookers on the strip or get naked. If you can’t resist shedding your clothes head to to Mandalay Bay Resort where it’s all perfectly above board.
It’s the ultimate town for a bachelor party… and just one more tip, ‘what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas’.

The World Cup is a pretty big deal around the world but it does not include us Americans. We are more interested in other things such as making awesome fast cars and dating hot women. We love our rock and roll and are all about setting world records. We may not be interested in Soccer but we sure as hell have some of the hottest WAGs. What’s a WAG you say? The acronym WAG stands for Wives and Girlfriends, but originally meant as a phrase to describe the ladies attached to world cup soccer players, similar to MILF used to describe, well you know… So here are some Sexy American WAGs.
1) Jessica Simpson: Well, Jessica Simpson is probably one of our more famous WAGs. She started off as a virginal teen pop sensation and later on was called a sexual crack cocaine on her reality show by some dumb ass dude with a really bad sleeve tattoo.
2) Brooklyn Decker: Brooklyn Decker needs no introduction, she was the recent cover girl for sports illustrated, and with her measurements, jovial attitude, and amazingly stunning face, Its no wonder that notoriously lady flirting footballer Andy Rodick has made her his latest squeeze.
3) Eva Longoria: Eva is a conventional girl whose hard work and assertiveness has paid off by having both a successful film and television career. She became one successful WAG once she got together with NBA player Tony Parker.
4) Kim Kardashian: Well, Kim is no longer a WAG but we just had to put up a picture of her here. Besides, the length of her relationship with Reggie Bush has made her a permanent WAG. Her delectably curvaceous body is something that gets any guy going. Another reason for her being a genuine WAG is the fact that she possesses the WAG gene (After all, her sister is married to Lamar Odom).
What women want, read her signals. So you see that beautiful woman sitting at the bar and she allowed you to a drink. She seems interesting and she laughs at all your jokes and is also interested in your conversation. But how do you know that the signs she's passing are actually flirty or just friendly. Here are a few tips about what women want and reading their signals.
1) Obvious and subconscious primping: If she's constantly settling her dress or her hair, it means that she might be interested in you. So guys take notice of this and don't make obvious advances but instead compliment her on the way she looks and if you can make her blush, even better.
2) Foot swinging: If her leg is crossed over and her elevated foot is swinging slightly, it usually means she's attracted to you and its an even better deal if her foot is pointing towards you.
3) Her lingo style matches yours: Ok guys, here is where you have to be a little insightful. If you feel that her style of speaking and flow of conversation matches yours, then it usually means that the both of you are up to a good start.
4) Funny conversation: If you try to impress her with a bit of funny conversation, and if she tries to continue the humor by adding funny remarks. That's a good sign.
5) Deep thought: It's also a good sign with the depth of answer that she gives you with every question you ask. Although, it's a good idea if you can hold back the questions, don't try to hold back too much.
6) Indulge in the "accidental" touch: Well boys, if all else fails and you're still trying to maintain your calm about whether she's into you or not, then you can indulge in the "accidental" touch. But guys, just try to be subtle as well, It does not mean that you have to try and grope her.
Check out Olivia Wilde topless in Maxim in the pictures below and if you go to the movies today make sure to check out Cowboys and Aliens where you will find Olivia Wilde nearly nude. See the sexy star of ‘Cowboys & Aliens‘ below explain her soon-to-be talked about nude scene was not initially in the plans, but that she was the one to decide on the strip down.

Hmm. Well, I’m sure you're not going to get a lot of complaints from movie-goers either, Olivia.
Most horror movies these days (especially the B grade ones) usually if not always revolve around some hot chick getting into serious trouble and would invariably include these women trying to get away while slowly losing their clothes along the way. So in homage of these iconic scenes that make those horror movies so special to every reasonable man out there, here are a few horror movie hotties that we compiled together, why? We’ll why not.
5) Sheri Moon Zombie
Sheri Moon Zombie
You've seen her in the Rob Zombie directed Flicks "House Of 1,000 Corpses" as well as the follow up to it, "The Devil's Rejects". Sheri Moon Zombie was the only hot member of the murderous Firefly family. If she was to portray her character from the movie in real life as well, then she's someone you definitely wouldn't want to schlub it with. That doesn't mean that she's still not hot eye candy.
4) Rose McGowan
Rose McGowan is one pretty lipped hottie and there's no denying. Although she started off with pansy roles like the one where she played a witch in the TV series "Charmed", she eventually brought forward her ruthless and more cinematic side in Robert Rodriguez's exploitation comedy "Planet Terror". She again acted as the dumb blond in the same director's masterpiece movie "death proof".
3) Liv Tyler
Known better for being the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler doesn't make her any less known for just that alone. She's a world class hottie who acted as Kristen McKay in the movie "The Strangers". In the movie, she is chased by killers who have no motives and have bags on their heads.
2) Naomi Watts
She's one of the more familiar horror movie hotties, especially after her role in the eerie English remake of the Japanese movie "Ring". She is a classic beauty when it comes to being the iconic "damsel in distress".
1) Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis is number one on our list. Know Why? She's HOT. I think we've given you enough reason. She was most famous for her role in "Halloween" as well as her role in the original "Prom Night" which we think was a classic. Remake? What bloody Remake?
We'd advise your to forget about your in ear earphones that keep plopping out every time you try to really place them firmly into your ears. We're talking about those headphones that give the person next to you more of a listening advantage than yourself. SkullCandy is one brand of headphones that we love and just had to show them to you as well.
SkullCandy is a Utah based brand that probably makes the coolest personal listening gear that we've seen around anywhere. Apart from having the trendiest designs for their headphones, they also boast of NBA player as well as artiste collaborations. Since they claim that most of their inspiration comes from hip hop, its no wonder that one of their artist collaborators is Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg's signature design, known as the Skullcrusher, is most definitely bound to turn heads when you wear them. The headphones are complete with mini sub woofers and they allow all bass junkies to carry Snoop's baselines no matter where they go.
If the Snoop headphones are too showy for you, then there are a bunch of other hip headphones that will make any music lover go wild. The restyled classic Lowriders are a more sublime and subtle option. The lowriders havs have shed its plastic skin and has given way for a matt satin texture skin. The colors that are offered are purple, blue, coral, yellow and white. The head phones come with nylon cable, ear pillows and an integrated microphone that's compatible with Blackberry and iPhone.
Check out the SkullCandy website for yourself and see if you like anything in particular.
Motorola was supposed to release an upgrade to its Motorola XOOM 3G and prospective customers were looking forward to the release of the model in 4G LTE. But now these customers are a little worried as rumors are floating about that the upgrade maybe pushed back and instead a new model maybe released in its place, thereby leaving hyped up customers in the cold. Thankfully that wasn't the case and the company has just released an update that indeed an upgrade on the tablet would most definitely be released (phew). This should happen sometime in September of this year.
Motorola XOOM 4G
Droidlife had stated that all customers who had purchased the Motorola XOOM 3G will be receiving updates via email regarding them of the good news of the release of the upgrade. 3G customers are lucky as the upgrade from 3G to 4G will be free, however, this upgrade will require the customers to hand over their tablets to the company so that a mini PCI module can be installed in order to maintain LTE speeds. Customers have been informed that they need to back up all their important content.
Approval for an upgrade component was to happen through the filing of a 4G Motorola XOOM. The upcoming 4G XOOM was rumored to be a second generation tablet, and this has left many customers feeling frustrated especially after this upgrade had been delayed for many months. Thankfully though the company has stuck to its promise of making an upgrade rather than passing it up and concentrating on an all new product.
