Serial mistress, 47, who’s had sex with 100 married men says she doesn’t feel guilty

So this story took place on This Morning this morning (ha!) and then made it into the papers.

All I have done so far is read the headline:

‘Homewrecker!’ Serial mistress, 47, who’s had sex with 100 married men is slammed by This Morning viewers for saying she DOESN’T feel guilty

My response?

That’s kinda stating the obvious. If she felt guilty she wouldn’t have slept with 100 married men! She clearly likes and enjoys it. To each their own I suppose but I get why others are calling her a homewrecker because, well she probably has wrecked a few homes.

If it was like say half a dozen men I could be like, maybe she didn’t know they were married when she slept with them or maybe they are in really really awful unhappy relationships so she didn’t feel guilty for that reason.

Not 100 though. What are the odds that she didn’t know all 100 were married? Equally what are the odds all 100 married men were in awful unhappy relationships? Leaving aside any marriage jokes naturally.

Should I read the article and see what she said or is the headline enough?

To preserve my sanity i think I’m gonna pass. She doesn’t feel guilty, that’s her choice and her right, nothing is going to change that I don’t think.

What does it mean that Uranus is moving into Taurus?

Ah another day and another stupid newspaper headline.

Earlier on I browsing through a newspaper website I stumbled upon this gem of a headline.

For the first time since 1942, Uranus, the planet of change, is moving into Taurus, triggering a period of worldwide upheaval. Here, a top astrologer reveals what tomorrow’s cosmic curveball means for YOU

 

I am going to save you all a lot of time and tell you the answer right now.

What does it mean that Uranus is moving into Taurus?

Absolutely nothing.

It’s not a cosmic curveball. It’s not going to trigger a period of worldwide upheaval. Other events might sure, but not Uranus moving into Taurus.

Astrology is a con. It is nonsense.

What such a thing is doing in a national newspaper of what is supposed to be an enlightened country is beyond me.

An example of the dumbing down in the media

The other day browsing through the Daily Mail’s website I came across this headline.

Can you all see the mistake in the headline? Dissected alive? That’s called vivisection. It should read something along the lines of:

“The horrors of Japan’s WWII ‘human experiments unit’: Disturbing images show how Japan performed vivisections on Chinese civilians and Allied POWs and infected them with the PLAGUE”

It may seem pedantic and trivial, the sort of thing one should not get worked up over but I hate it. To me it just highlights the dumbing dumb in society and the declining standards of the media.

 

‘The story of a weird world I was warned never to tell’ – A fascinating story and brilliant read

I’ve just finished reading a news story on the BBC website called ‘The story of a weird world I was warned never to tell‘ about the secrets and lies a woman was told growing up during her unusual childhood. I should point out it is real life, not fiction.

I’m trying my best not to spoil anything because it’s an absolutely fascinating story and brilliant read. It’s one of those stories that shows real life is stranger than fiction.

I’m still trying to process it all. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in her place.

Go read it. It’s long but well worth your time.

Man gets stuck in a spanner [Weird News]

Flicking through the news earlier I came across the rather bizarre and uncomfortable story of a man who got a certain special part of himself stuck in a spanner.

The brave, curious, and highly stupid man went to A&E where they had to call the South Wales Fire Service to come and help him out, quite literally in this case.

Now I say brave because it takes a certain amount of courage to try such a thing, I say curious because it takes a special kind of inquisitive soul to look at a spanner and find new uses for it shall we say? And I say highly stupid because it is a bloody spanner, what did you think would happen if you stuck your dick in it? Who looks at a spanner and gets aroused?  “Oh my what a delightful spanner you have” he says with a lustful look in his eye.

It must be really awkward going to a hardware shop with this guy, he’d probably wander off leaving you looking all over the place for him before you find him stood in the tool aisle staring at the spanners.

Not wanting to miss out on some social media attention South Wales Fire Service took to Twitter because of course they did, companies and organisations love taking to Twitter to show how “cool” they are, to remind people: “If you’re using tools, make sure you’re handling as the manufacturer recommends.”

It’s good solid advice from South Wales Fire Service and one that will probably ensure that you don’t waste too much of their time. They do a very very important job. It’s a little sad that they have to remind people but sadly that’s the world we live in.

Of course we’ve missed out the obvious question, how big was the spanner?

On second thoughts I don’t want to know. I think we’ll leave it there.

Coca-Cola have designed selfie bottles because of course they have

Coca-Cola have invented a special bottle that takes a selfie when you take a drink because what the world is in desperate need of is more ways to take a bloody selfie.

It’s only being used at some brand festival event in Israel at the moment but you know that if it proves a hit or if there is high enough demand for it they’ll release it worldwide.  The thing that saddens me most is that I can imagine it being a hit and people around the world wanting one.

There’s no talk in the article (which is linked at the bottom of this page) about how much a bottle will cost which is bound to be more than a regular bottle of coca-cola since it has a camera.

Oh and for you selfie perfectionists out there be warned, once you the bottle is tilted to a 70-degree angle a picture is automatically taken and uploaded to Coca-Cola’s social media sites which means no deleting and taking a thousand pictures until you find the “perfect” one you desperately crave.

This is all because Coca-Cola want to get in on the selfie craze and because they think there is a gap in the market for novelty drinks. Who the hell wants a novelty drink? I drink because I am thirsty, not as a novelty. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy new and interesting flavours and mixes because I do but this selfie bottle is not that.

Go check out the story for yourself and let me know in the comments below if this is the sort thing you’d be interested in. I promise not to judge you too harshly for it.
