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

The Queen has an ingenious way to break in her new shoes

Post  candyfloss on Tue 11 Apr 2017, 11:11 am

Thought this was an April Fool rather late Laughing What a load of piffle!


The Queen has an ingenious way to break in her new shoes

HRH goes to bold lengths to make sure she doesn’t encounter painful blisters

Tuesday 11 April 2017 08:34 BST

There’s nothing worse than wearing a new pair of leather shoes and suffering through that initial period where your feet feel like they’re being rubbed to shreds.

While there are plenty of DIY home hacks that can help you to avoid this excruciating dilemma, the Queen has found a rather more ingenious method to make sure she never has to endure the indignity of popping in to H&M to buy some emergency flats.

According to a royal insider, the Queen has hired a member of staff whose job it is to simply break in her shoes before she wears them.
That’s right, there is a person in Buckingham Palace whose job it is to stomp around the grounds in the Queen’s new shoes until they’ve softened out of that awkward blister-inducing stage.

Stewart Parvin, who has designed the Queen’s wardrobe for 11 years, revealed that the staff member wears a pair of beige cotton ankle socks while doing so, and must only walk on the carpet during the ‘breaking in' period.

He said: “The shoes have to be immediately comfortable … she does get someone to wear them. The Queen can never say ‘I’m uncomfortable, I can’t walk any more.

“She has the right to have someone wear them in.”

Each pair is rigorously broken in before they end up on Her Majesty's feet - although it is not known how long the breaking in period lasts.

Either way, don’t expect to see her making a royal detour to Boots for plasters anytime soon

This really does sound like an April Fools joke!

Just because a pair of shoes is comfortable for one person does not mean that they will be for anyone else.

P.S. This is a regurgitated story from 2012.

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

Post  candyfloss on Sat 15 Apr 2017, 1:47 pm

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.
