Oh dear, Lambeth Council you are a trifle incompetent. Hmm, seems the council in south London have released a list of 800 empty properties to The Advisory Service for Squatters (dear god they have one?) because it was a Freedom of Information request (oh crap!).The issue it seems is some friggin fool published a list of all properties in the appendix of a council document. Bingo, info in public domain, no choice but to cough it up. But don’t fret, I am sure the squatters are just curious and wouldn’t dream of using that information for their own gain! Did my nose just grow?

Oh no, Irish police have been left a little red faced after they discovered that the mysterious traffic offender Prawo Jazdy, who had clocked up over 50 traffic violations, was in fact not a person at all. Hmm, seems the Irish traffic cops, when pulling over traffic offenders with Polish driver’s licenses, were writing out tickets to “Prawo Jazdy” the name which appeared on the top right hand corner of the license, believing it to to the first and surname of the card holder.A memo circulating to Irish cops states “Prawo Jazdy is actually the Polish words for driving license and not the first and surname on the license”.Oh to be sure to be sure.
Ah,like Braveheart, Paul Steele is proud of his heritage, that’s why he has a Saltire Scottish Flag as his curtain (well instead of one) in East Wemyss, a small English village. But the Fife Council thinks it’s racist and want it removed. What’s a man with a Saltire to do ? Bruce Combes from Fife Council’s customer services department did an inspection of his living room where the offending flag hangs and requested it be removed, despite a tricolour flag flying in his son’s window (that, it appears, isn’t racists). In all fairness the council says “It was not because we considered the flag racist.We have had complaints about this property — including the flag and its prominence.” Hmm
Councils, you gotta love them. If you wandered down to Newmarket racecourse in Suffolk England, you maybe forgiven for not noticing a road signed named after one of Britain’s most successful jockeys. That’s because they spelt his friggin name wrong. Yep, Periman Close is named after flat race champion Dick Perryman. Oh and the council is refusing to change it because that would mean a change of address for the residents. It wouldn’t have been so bad had this not been the second time Suffolk had messed up with the spelling of a street name, the Forest Heath District Council named Beavorbrook Road after racing patron Lady Beaverbrook.
What the? General Hospital has made a soap opera out of it’s soap opera. The controversy in question can be found in the “Night Shift” episode in which a hospital worker (played by Billy Dee Williams) receives a letter and photograph from a son he apparently abandoned. The only problem is the photograph is actual of a real child, 6 year old Christopher Barrios, who in 2007 was kidnapped, raped and murdered then dumped in a garbage bin by a convicted child molester. And how do we know this ? The photo was the same one handed out to media outlets when Christopher actually went missing.Whoops! A statement released by the ABC network read in part “We offer our deepest condolences to the Barrios family for their loss and our sincerest apologies for any pain caused by our mistake,”. No one has been able to explain how the photo got on the set in the first place, because normal policy is to use an image of a child actor. The boy’s grandmother Sue Rodriquez told SoapNET “First, who gave them permission to use his picture? Second, I’m glad I don’t watch this kind of mess,soap operas,because if I had seen Christopher’s picture on there, I would have gone nuts,”. Ewh what a unlucky mess to get into and get out of!
Good news and bad news story alert! Bad news first. According to Professor Steve Jones, of University College London we have come to the end of the evolution line. We are not going to be evolving into any superhuman beings anytime soon. In fact bets are this as good as it is gonna get. Hmm good news, at least we aren’t going to unevolve . And for all you racists out there, it seems that the future of man is brown. Yes, as the world becomes one big global mass and the world interbreeds with other ethnic groups odds are the population will be just one color, brown! Ah but at least it will be varying shades of brown.
But don’t get too depressed, spare a thought for the other animals of this planet, their future looks rather bleak. A survey has revealed a quarter of the world’s mammals face extinction.Scientists have determined that about 5,487 species of mammals are on the hit list as we (the unevolving homosapiens) destroy their habitats and hunt them down. Feel like breeding much?
A Wyoming police officer ran for his life after being called out to remove a pesky cat from a woman’s porch. The cat it seems was none other than a sleepy old mountain lion. Mrs Beverley Hood rang the 911 after the lion hissed at her, but failed to mention the that the putty cat was in fact a 90lb cougar, telling the dispatcher it was a very big house cat.
