New Idea for a Website

If you thought that all websites were the same or perhaps even similar in so far as one website gives information on just one topic, you may have been right but not anymore as a new idea has just arrived with a new website. The website is called updunk and if you visit the website, you will see that it covers a wide range of topics; in fact it covers any topic anyone wants to post on it. The idea is that if a visitor to the site knows of anything that they think other visitors may be interested in, whatever the topic, they can post it to the site and share it. The site claims that it would prefer new or innovative ideas and that is usually what is of most interest to most people anyway but unlike on social media, where you can share a new idea you have seen, it will not just be shared with the friends you have on that social media, it will be shared with anyone that visits the site. If you for instance see on the worldwide web a great, new, innovative idea for a special gift, if you had wanted to share this idea before you could have either shared it just among your friends on social media or found a website that may be interested in allowing you to post it on their site and then ask their permission to do so. With this site you can freely post that idea and share it with the rest of the world. This means that if you are interested in finding a gift idea or even want to know what the next advances in technology will be, you may find the answers right on this same website. Often your friends on social media are from the same area as you or perhaps at least the same country and so the only new ideas you see on that are ones from your country but as this site is on the worldwide web, ideas from all around the globe can appear on it and you could well be surprised what other countries are up to. Of course the website is not just restricted to new gift ideas or technological breakthroughs, it may also have interesting posts on it such as different ways to dunk a basketball or what the latest fashions in tennis are, whatever may interest one person may also interest others and so the site will certainly be interesting and different from any other sites you may have seen in the past. As this site is still new, it currently lacks a lot of content but as more people become aware of the site and its potential, that content will rapidly grow as will the websites popularity. Of course, with a concept like this for a website, the more people that use the website, the more varied and interesting the content becomes and the more quickly new material is added.

Butterfly Knives

Although more commonly known as Butterfly Knives, the proper name for these knives is Balisong Knife. These knives are actually more popular for the number of different tricks you can do with them rather than their cutting ability but none the less they are very popular where ever they are legal. Many States and countries though have deemed these unique knives as being illegal although they have relevantly short blades, only usually about 4.25 inches in length. The reason why most countries have made these knives illegal is because of the number of people that needed professional medical treatment after trying to learn the different tricks which can be done with the knives. Some of the best butterfly knivescan of course be quite expensive but a training knife which is similar only has no sharp blades, is far cheaper perhaps even only $10 compared to the $200 for a real Balisong Knife. Although there is some discussion as to where the first Balisong knives originated, there is no such doubts as to how they became popular in the US prior to being made illegal. After WW11, the US soldiers that had been based in the Philippines, brought Balisong knives with them and they met with such appeal that they were started to be made in the US. So the knives found their way to the States via the Philippines but the question is, did the first Balisong knife originate there or somewhere else? Although the actual name Balisong almost certainly came from the Philippines as the knives are, even today, made there, in the Balisung province, was that where the first ones were made? Some argue that the Balisong dates back to the 9th century as that is known to be the time that the Martial Art of Kali dates back to and that uses the Balisong but no physical evidence has been found by archeologists to support this theory. The other theory is that although not at that time called the Balisong Knife, it originated in Europe and the Filipino hero Jose Rizal took one back to the Philippines after a visit to Spain. Once in the Philippines they incorporated it into Kali. Although the real Balisong knives are banned in most countries because the training knives have blades that cannot actual cut, they are not and so are available for people to buy and train with. As many people will know, the Balisong or Butterfly Knife has a blade which folds into the two halves of the handle. This unique design allows it to be opened and closed in several different ways and when these are done fast, they are considered to be ‘tricks’. Even if you do live somewhere where the Balisong knives are legal, it is recommended that you first but a trainer in order to learn the tricks safely and then, only have you learned them and become proficient with them, you consider trying them with your real Balisong Knife or knives.
