This massive rotating column of tasty meat weighs in at over 250 kilograms, or at least 550 pounds. That’s insane.

The above footage, shot by, was taken at Enbey Donër, a restaurant in the Beylikduzu district of Istanbul, Turkey. The donër rotates all day long and is used to create the different sandwiches that Enbey sells, which contain anywhere from roughly a quarter pound (which costs 10.5 Turkish Lira, or around $2.80 US) to a half pound of meat that will set you back $5.61 US (21 Turkish Lira).

The meat on the grill is usually lamb, beef, or a combination of the two, and slowly turns while getting charred on the outsides, creating a crusty but tasty outer layer that gets sliced off so that the the next part of the meat can get its turn to go crispy.

The result is a plethora of thousands of affordable sandwiches that can be made for each impressive donër tower, and a truly glorious meat display to behold.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Man Is Shot And Killed By His BFF Over A Restaurant Bill [WATCH]

I’ve heard of disputes over who has to pay the check at the end of the meal, but never like this.

Being a Middle Eastern man myself, I understand many of the customs when it comes to dining out with friends. One of them, and probably the most common, is the virtually necessary argument between the men on the table over who gets to pay the bill. In America, we call this a “big swinging dick” contest.

Well, two Turkish men were enjoying their soup at a quaint, little restaurant nestled in the heart of Istanbul when the bill finally arrived. Hasan Erdemir and Idris Alakus (who were also accompanied by several other unnamed friends) were talking and eating their meal until Alakus said he had to leave. He tried to pay for everyone’s meal, but was informed that Erdemir had preemptively taken care of it.

This act of kindness somehow threw Alakus into a fit of rage, leading him to storm out of the restaurant. Erdemir and the others thought that the scene had ended, only to learn moments later that things were about to get substantially worse.

After handing his friend a few more bucks to tip the staff, Alakus stormed back into the restaurant with a quick but surefooted pace. Out of nowhere, Alakus pulled his gun from the back of his pants and pointed it directly at Erdemir’s genitals, taking the first shot. As Erdemir hunched over and began falling down, Alakus took another shot at the victim. Based on the footage from the bloody scene, it looked like Alakus hit him near his back left side. After a moment, Erdemir fell to his knees on the floor, then collapsed onto the ground.

Subsequently, Alakus then headed over to the payment counter where Erdemir’s two friends were and shot them as well. Thankfully, their injuries were not fatal and they both survived; unfortunately, the injuries that Erdemir sustained were too criticial, and resulted in him passing away at the hospital.

Alakus managed to temporarily escape for the time being, but was apprehended by authorities a short time later.

The moral of the story here, and it baffles me to even have to say this, is that if somebody offers to pay for your meal, let them pay for the meal. It’s not worth dying over.

This Machine Recycles Bottles and Feeds Stray Animals at the Same Time


Istanbul, Turkey is home to about 150,000 stray cats and dogs among its 14 million citizens. With such a high number of animals roaming the streets, the government has tried to come up with ways to relieve the issue, including stray banishment from the city. But Turkish company Pugedon took it upon themselves to relieve part of the issue while also keeping the city clean.

Pugedon came up with a recycling receptacle that doubles as an animal nourishment station. The concept is simple — just place a plastic or glass bottle into the bin, and food and water is dispensed at the bottom for strays. There’s also a place for users to pour excess water into bowls for the animals.



The value of recycled bottles actually covers the cost of the food, so this self-sustaining project is a win-win for both parties.
