I was once on a field trip to a nuclear power station when one of the lads leaned against a bank of switches in the control room. That was a scary moment for all concerned.

Will stick this one here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4389472/Teen-rescues-man-brink-death-shouting-hole.html

Incredible moment friends walking in the woods shout into a hole… and a voice calls back before police rescue a missing man on the brink of death
Izaak Eglington-Watts was walking in Plymbridge Woods when he saw the hole
He shouted down expecting an echo, but got a reply from James Thompson, 51
James had been missing from his Plymouth home for more than a month
Despite a huge police hunt, he was found by chance close to death by a teenager

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

How disgusting is this, latest thing, the cameras hidden in coathooks are now being sold here and unsrupilous people are putting them in public toilets and filming people - apparently sold on Amazon for as little as 8.99 ..... Shocked


Perverts are using coat hooks with hidden cameras to spy on women using toilets

snipped

Recently, 21-year-old Luke Whiting was banned from McDonalds after installing a camera in the female toilets when he worked for the firm.

His plan was rumbled when a female colleague spotted his device.

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.

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.
