The Car That Murdered James Dean

James Dean died at age 24 when he was at the peak of his success.

James Dean suffered an accident in his Porsche 550 while going to a race in the city of Salina. From the day of his death, strange things happened to the remains of his car. In 1960, the body of the vehicle disappeared.

Almost 50 years after his departure, James Dean, who still leads women to delirium, was an American actor who starred in such famous films as "Rebel Without a Cause" and became the idol of an entire generation.

On September 30, 1955, the "Golden Boy", as it was called, died at age 24 in a traffic accident aboard his Porsche 550, at the height of his artistic career.

Dean participated in auto competitions, but the day he would debut his new "machine", the tragedy happened. It was one of the best-known sports in history, with a 4-cylinder engine of 1,500 cubic meters, with 100 horsepower per liter of displacement.

The fans refused to believe the idol's disappearance and said that he was still alive; Would have been disfigured after the accident. What actually happened after the crash were strange things to the owners of the remaining pieces of Dean's car. Deaths, rare accidents and, most absurd of all, the Porsche 550, nicknamed by Dean of "Little Bastard", simply disappeared. A curse? Pure chance?

James Dean had decided to take the car on a platform to the race spot. But such an idea was discarded, as the owner wanted to get an idea of ​​how the car would behave when facing its first challenge on the road. But his friends had warned him about the danger he would have to run a high-powered machine.

Accompanied by Wuetherich, after an hour's drive, they came to a junction near the town of Cholame - James spotted another car in the opposite direction. "He has to stop, he has to see us," Dean shouted. But it was not so. Dean crashed into a 1950 Ford Custom Tudor model driven by Donald Turnupseed, who came in the opposite direction and did not notice the presence of the silvery Porsche.

Dean's chaperone broke one leg and suffered multiple bruises and cuts throughout the body, but the star died on the way to the hospital. The driver of the other car bit off and said he did not see Dean's car approaching.

But the tragedy did not end with the death of Dean .... Around the remains of this Porsche has occurred a series of stories that always carry the same question. Would James Dean's car have some kind of curse?

The insurance company sold what was left of the car; George Barkuis, the driver who drove the truck that went to get the "broken" car, died when the Porsche fell on him at the same place as the accident.

A Hollywood car specialist named George Barris bought the car for $ 2,500. When the car arrived in Barris' garage, it slipped and fell on one of the mechanics who unloaded it, breaking its legs. With much fear, Barris began to separate the parts of the car that could be resold, which would not be difficult. Barris said he never had good sensations near 550, on the contrary, but he believed they were just superstitions.

But his suspicions were confirmed in October 1956, when the person who had bought the engine from Dean's car (Troy Mc Henry, a Beverly Hills doctor) died by using it for the first time in his car.

Soon after, another of his clients - William Eschrid, who bought the vehicle exchange - slammed the car violently, yet survived and told that his automobile simply stopped abruptly without explanation.

The wheels were sold to a young man who a week later was involved in an accident due to a defect in the wheels that belonged to Dean's Porsche. But the story did not end in this fact. In an international race, a boy attempted to steal the wheel of the Porsche from Barris (who had previously been Dean) and cut off his arm.

Trying to get rid of the bad luck of the car, Barris lent to the California police what was left of the 550's body, to use it as an example of carelessness in traffic. Before the authorities took him, the garage where he was stored caught fire and mysteriously Dean's Porsche was saved, unlike the rest of the cars parked there that were completely destroyed by the flames.

The day the car was placed at an exhibit in Sacramento, he fell off the bookshelf and injured a teenager. When the car was transported to an exhibition near the town of Salinas, the truck skidded on the runway and crashed. The driver died.

In 1958, Barris loaned the Porsche 550 body to be displayed in a car safety sample in Miami, Florida. When the car was put on top of the truck to be taken to Los Angeles mysteriously disappeared. It never reached its destination. Even today the whereabouts of "Little Bastard" is completely unknown.

Curse or coincidence? The luck of the Dean escort was not the best either. In 1981, Wuetherich died in a car accident in Germany while driving a Honda.

The Big Bang Theory - Sheldon's Phrases

One really needs to be smart to understand the jokes cracked in The Big Bang Theory. If not smart, at least have an interest in the geeky world outside. Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, Howard, and Penny represent a perfect example of four geeks and one blonde.
The Big Bang Theory focuses on five different characters living in Pasadena, California, and longtime fans will tell you that when it comes to comic relief, there is no funnier than Sheldon Cooper.
Without any doubt, Dr. Sheldon Cooper is the show stopper, stealer, and the star of The Big Bang Theory. It’s like he has evolved 100 years ahead but has returned in a time machine that is now stuck in the 21st century.
Sheldon is a theoretical physicist with an ingenious IQ, but almost a total lack of social skills. The inability of HIs to show humility or empathy toward the other characters on the show has been a long gag during all 9 seasons. Sheldon's unique personality has given us some truly hilarious lines over the years and it…

What does Bazinga mean

In The Big Bang Theory, Leonard tries to have Sheldon pay attention to him, but it's too late. Sheldon submerges in the pool of colored balls and disappears from his sight. Tired of being ignored, Leonard decides to enter to force him out, but is unable to catch him. Each time he believes he knows where he is, Sheldon appears on the opposite side. His head appears, surrounded by colored balls, and with a smiley face he exclaims:
- Bazinga!
And dive back in.
The expression "bazinga" comes from a video game called:
Bubble Bazinga In which, when the player gets more than ten thousand points with a single shot, they blow the trumpets and a voice shouts:
Bazinga! The video game is not very well known - because it is a clone of another much more popular, the:
Puzzle Bobble But it is possible that Sheldon played and memorized the word. The term originates from the expression:
Zing! That is used, in a joking context, to make it clear that we are making fun of somebody.

The two big questions we should ask ourselves when we have a new project

It is said that the difference between dream and goal is to set a date for its realization, but Ronaldo Burla - a great friend with whom I learned many things - went a little further in the materialization of dreams.
More than motivation and focus, he developed two questions that define and plan their execution when they are answered:

If not now, when?
If it's not you, who will it be?
I hope they can help you in the same way that you have helped me.
Thank you Ronaldo.

Have you asked these three questions for yourself today?

What prevents most people from leading the life of their dreams

The answer is simple ...
money But we need to redefine our attitude toward money.
Instead of letting it dictate each of our actions, we must see it as a resource that serves as support for all areas of our lives.
We all have dreams and a certain idea of how we want to live life.
Basically, we want to believe that we have a special role to play that will make the world a better place.
But unfortunately, routine and "real life" often prevent us from turning our dreams into reality, making us forget a little more each day that WE DESERVE to live that dream.
Gradually, we succumb to the belief that we can not break free from our current situation and begin to make concessions ...
Our image of how we want to live our life, sooner or later, begins to fade, and before we know it, life is over ...
Learn to see money from different perspectives.
For, while it may keep us from harnessing our potential to the fullest, it also helps us to become the best we can be!

What is your legacy?

Today I was scared when I went to make an Internet purchase with a new credit card I had just received.
When the site asked me to provide the expiration date of the card, I discovered that the card has a validity greater than mine!
That reminded me the other day, when an 86-year-old lady told me that she had found an "old lady" in the church ...
I had to interrupt her by asking:
"- Please, let me define 'old lady.'"
"- Oh, she must be about 90 years old," – she replied.
After all, what is life?
Guimarães Rosa, physician and Brazilian writer, in his book "Grande Sertão Veredas" wrote:
"Living is very dangerous." Living is indeed dangerous. But what about birth, then?
Have you ever imagined how difficult it is to be born?
It is so difficult that nature is wise, hiding in memory the moment of birth and the first months of life.
It is so shocking to get out of the womb that it is "erased" from our memory so we do not suffer.
For the …
