I've just started watching this programme about Internet horror encounters. I think that "weird" will cover most of them.

What a shock to the system that must be.

I'm surprised though that DNA can prove that a mixed sex couple are twins rather than simply siblings born at different times.

You`re right - they would have been conceived in separate eggs.

That's what I was thinking. You would know that a same sex couple were twins - apart from the fact that they look the same! - but not with a male and female.

Female pensioner, 64, who had sex with three dogs at a sick ‘bestiality’ party but claimed it was ‘not a crime’ is SPARED jail
Carol Bowditch, 64, had sex with a St Bernard, a black Labrador and an Alsatian
She claimed she did not realise it was illegal after RAF launched investigation
Owners watched women have sex with their dogs then men at bizarre parties




I believe the St Bernard and the Alsatian refused to talk but it was the Lab report that convicted her.

The actual story is nothing to smile about but I like your jokes, Chirpy!

Perish the thought that you can't always believe what the media tells you; the story about the twins may be a hoax.

http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/viral-story-about-married-couple-who-found-out-they-were-twins-through-ivf-appears-to-be-fake/ar-BBzSrZY?li=AAmiR2Z&ocid=spartanntp

There was supposedly a similar case in the U K some years ago.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-507588/Shock-married-couple-discovered-twins-separated-birth.html

P.S. It's been debunked by the Snopes site.

I think this is turning into my favourite thread:

Is Bigfoot lurking in Holland? Terrified tourists film sinister creature watching them from behind a tree in a Dutch national park
In the video two youths are filmed visiting the Veluwezoom National Park
They spot a dark figure lurking in the distance in the forest behind trees
Eerie knocking can be heard as the boys try to figure out what the creature is
But then, suddenly, a gunshot in the distance forces the boys to flee

That was certainly an expensive meal.

Goodness knows how she managed to swallow them.

The same goes for those people you see in programmes like Border Patrol and Anything to Declare who have hidden drugs internally, usually wrapped in condoms.......
