Yesterday, when I was having a squizzy at supposed photos of Boston Marathon suspects picked out by a vigilant public I did notice something .
Have a look top left of photo and there is an abandoned black backpack. I’m guessing that it belongs to someone on the stage.
Cyprus is in so much financial trouble it has imposed a 9.9% tax on all bank accounts over 100,000 Euro and 6.7% on anything under. Hell yes, people are withdrawing their cash faster than a leopard on a treadmill but the bastards have already preempted the move and have placed restrictions on people emptying their accounts. The idea to raid people’s bank accounts was the brainchild of the European finance chiefs who fear if Cyprus goes kaput it could potentially destroy the Euro dollar. Run people, run.
Yesterday, I went to my local supermarket and guess what they were selling? Friggin ostrich eggs. Seriously, what they hell do you cook with one of those suckers?
The last words that Ewarda O’Bara said to her mother before slipping into a coma in 1970 was “Promise you won’t leave me, will you, Mommy?” . And her mother and family kept that promise. Ewarda passed away today after spending 42 years in a coma after falling ill as a teenager and slipping into a diabetic coma. Edwarda’s mother stayed by her side for 38 years of those years, talking, reading and playing music to her. During those 38 years she cared for Edwarda at her home, refusing to institutionalize her, and had not slept for more than 90 minutes at a time. When Edwarda’s mother died 5 years ago Edwarda’s sister took over the care taking, which required her to be turned every two hours. Rest in peace.
Sheez, kids these days!!!
Oh my, an Amusement Park in the UK, has decided to breathalyser all riders after an increase in upchucking. Wait for these frightening stats. Evidently in the past 7 days there has been a 250% increase in rides being shutdown due to projectile vomit incidents (mainly from drunk or hungover students). Dear lord, pass me the gloves and a bucket of sand. Gross.
Just letting you know the Loon will be reporting from Sydney this week.
OK, you finally got me!!!
A coroner has finally put to rest the death of baby Azaria at Uluru in 1980. The dingo did it. Yep, it’s official, the death certificate of Azaria Chamberlain can now be changed. Lindy Chamberlain (now Chamberlain-Creighton) who was originally jailed for the baby’s murder and ex hubby Michael Chamberlain, who was charged as being an accessory after the fact, were both exonerated after a royal commission in 1987. However, the cause of Azaria’s death was never officially determined . Now at least there is finally some closure.
Background – In 1980, while the Chamberlains were staying at a popular camping ground at Uluru, a dingo crept into the tent where baby Azaria and her two brothers were sleeping and dragged the 9 week old out by its jacket. Lindy cried out that a “dingo’s got my baby”. Despite an extensive search no trace of Azaria was ever found except for a torn baby’s jacket. Suspicion soon turned to the Chamberlains and they were later sent to trial and found guilty of Azaria’s murder. The pair were later exonerated after Lindy served several years in jail. The case divided the nation.
Feet up Indian town of Sadiya you have a figgin nasty plague of rogue spiders. Two people have died so far, with scores rocking up at hospitals with bites. Locals say the venomous arachnids are hanging in swarms and are flying at people who so much as stare at them. One victim said a spider leaped, bit and then stayed latched onto him. Experts are not sure what the hell type spider they are dealing with but fear it could be a new improved version of a tarantula, a black wishbone or a funnel-web spider…. none of which are native to the area. Good luck with that!
