A man in England who accidentally cut his arm off with a chainsaw, calmly popped next door to tell his neighbor. Hmm that was nice of him . John Stirling had been merrily cutting a tree with a chainsaw when he slipped, cutting his arm off just below the elbow. John’s first reaction was to go next door and tell his neighbor, Steve Francis.Well, you really couldn’t expect him to dial for an ambulance with one arm, could you?. Anyway, Steve freaked out when he saw John had no arm and immediately rang for an ambulance. Whilst John was perched outside on a stool (hate to get blood on the carpet), Steve took off with his Tesco shopping bag looking for the missing arm. When he returned he placed a bag of frozen pastries in with the severed limb to keep it cold and then gave it to the ambulance driver. All reports are that John and his arm are doing fine and have been reunited in a 14 hour emergency surgery procedure.

It seems Wall Street may be renamed Dead End if a bail out proposal doesn’t go ahead. Like something out of a Hollywood thriller the bankers, the investors and us little people have been glued to our seats as we watch the many twist and turns. I can’t guess this ending! The latest hiccup has been the House’s failure to pass the bill. But this is an important decision, America’s last line of defence and it shouldn’t be rushed through. Nancy Pelosi delivered her line “When was the last time someone asked you for $700 billion?” like a well seasoned actor. The audience are riveted. But deep down everyone knows something has to be done or the comet’s gonna hit. Already stocks have spiraled to an all time low, people are moving restlessly in their seats, the popcorn has all been eaten and the movies about to reach its final climax. Where’s our friggin Superman? I am guessing many of the stars of this show will never be working in this town again!
An aspiring chef has died from what is believed to be accidental death caused by eating home made chili sauce. Andrew Lee and his girlfriend’s brother decided to see who could eat the hottest chili sauce (as you do) . Lee whipped up a concoction made from his dad’s red chillies and Dolmio sauce then devoured the lot. When he went to bed he suffered from severe itching and discomfort but by morning he was dead. It is believed he died from a heart attack brought on by the sauce.
Oh no, not Cadbury’s. The big British chocolate company have recalled 11 products so far, but it is excepted to rise as they discover more tainted milk in the mix. Mars and Kraft aren’t immune either,their Chinese-made Oreos, M&Ms and Snickers are on the Melamine milk nightmare list. Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia are believed to have Cadbury tainted Chinese products on their shelves. Cadbury said all of its dairy suppliers have been cleared by government milk testing (but who is going to believe them?).Just a recap , melamine is a product used to make plastics and fertilizer. Dear god imagine the global weight loss, as people stay clear of chocolate. Doesn’t bear thinking about really, poor Jenny Craig.
Concerned melamine milk drinkers may like to check this website out, it lists all the products affected. Click here!
The 1,000 year old Hebrew Bible, Crown of Aleppo or Aleppo Codex, which got smuggled into Israel in a washing machine in 1958, is back in the news. Calling all Aleppo Codex page hoarders. Yep, the Holy Grail for Old Testament lovers could be pieced back together if researchers can find the 196 pages that are missing (roughly 40%). Yes, the Codex sleuths believe they are getting warmer to locating the missing text. Hmm, like a Da Vinci Code plot, they have traced back the Codex’s history and now believe that some of the 10,000 Aleppo Jews and a few antiquities dealers have the pages.Prior to it’s arrival in Israel, for centuries the bible had been lying quietly in an iron chest inside a Syrian synagogue. That was until the U.N. announced they had granted Israel statehood in 1947. Following that little bombshell an angry mob of Syrian’s torched the Aleppo Synagogue. Fortunately before it burnt to the ground a group of quick thinking Jews ran through the flames to rescue the Codex. Originally it was thought that the missing pages were destroyed in the fire but now they know different. Rumors have been circulating for years that the missing pages of bible still exist, but no ones talking. In 1982 relatives of a deceased woman in New York discovered a page and another New Yorker carried around a piece in his wallet as a good luck charm. Can you smell a movie sometime soon?
