Naw bless. It seems peeved British tour guides are behind the sudden influx of Chinese tourists to a small village in Kidlington. Residents have been bemused/mortified as bus loads of Chinese sightseers have descended into their quiet suburban streets taking snaps. Some enthusiastic Chinese tourists have been knocking on local’s doors asking for selfies, others bouncing on trampolines, one even offered to mow the lawn. Originally the phenomenon was blamed on the Chinese wanting to experience the “true” England. But no. Then it was reported that naughty tour guides were telling them that the village was the location for Harry Potter, Midsomer Murders and Inspector Morse. But now it has been revealed that the mobs have been dumped there because they don’t want to pay the jacked up prices offered by the tour guides to visit Winston Churchill’s home. Seems the crafty Chinese discovered they could buy cheaper tickets so they were opting out of the tour and then sneaking off on foot to visit. So the tour guides have been dropping them off at Kidlington because it is far enough away that they can’t walk there.
A religious computer programmer believes Jesus is on his way back to Earth to destroy the planet. Seems he has had enough. The programmer has calculated that at the end of 2016 we will face the apocalypse and those lucky enough will head to heaven while the rest will be sizzling somewhere else. She wrote on her website ‘In the fall of 2016, the 6,000 years of sin on earth will come to an end, everlasting righteousness will be brought in, and Jesus will come again to take His people to heaven.’
PSST I wonder what Jesus has been doing for the passed 2000 years?
So what is Belgian famous for…other than chocolate? Anyone? Well, evidently beer drinking. So much so Belgium has applied to have its beer culture listed on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List. On the application they state “It plays a role in daily life, as well as festive occasions,” …. and “Almost 1,500 types of beer are produced in the country including by some Trappist communities.”
Want pizza in Japan during winter? Well you can AND have it delivered by a reindeer. Trials are underway in Hokkaido to train reindeer to deliver Domino pizzas. It is so going to happen as soon as they work out how to get them to behave and how to attach the delivery boxes securely on their backs . Good luck with that, pizza maybe cold.
