Hands up who hates the “new car scent”? I must admit I hate it. Makes me feel quite ill. Apparently, I am not alone, seems a billion people in China hate it too. In a recent survey, it was revealed that most Chinese drivers prefer poor engine performance or safety than having a car that ponks. To break into the lucrative car market in Asia, Ford is currently working on a patent to eliminate the “new car smell”. Good luck with that.

A Russian law student has had it with men manspreading on trains and has taken action into her own hands. Armed with a bottle of water mixed with bleach she is “spray crotching” offenders. Yes, you heard me, she is walking up and down aisles of trains and splashing any man who dares spread his legs to an unacceptable width in the crotch. The mixture is guaranteed to leave the area in question bleached. Manspread shaming has just been taken to a new level. So far no one has reported her because let’s face it, who is going to go to the police?
Stephen King doesn’t just write scary novels he has also produced children with a keen eye for a good mystery. Joe Hill (aka Stephen King’s son) believes he may have solved a 1974 murder mystery by watching the movie Jaws. Apparently a woman who appears as an extra in a crowd scene looks very similar to an unidentified murder victim known as ‘Lady of the Dunes’.
The body of a woman who has never been identified was found badly decomposing (missing her hands) in Massachusetts in 1974. She was also found near where the Steven Spielberg movie was shot a few months earlier. A computer-generated image of what the ‘Lady of the Dunes’ would have looked like is very similar to the woman in the crowd scene. What ya think?
You spend nearly two weeks in a flooded, batshit covered cave in the dark with 12 of your friends. The world watches while collective heads are scratched wondering how they are going to get you out before the monsoon rains come. You then discover you are to be knocked out so you can get hauled through dangerous ragged caverns without freaking the hell out. You see the light, you are safe, you get your promised KFC, you are so grateful to be alive then your parents tell you…”hey son, you are becoming a monk’. Yep, seems the Wild Boars are about to all become monks as a repayment for the life of the Navy Seal that was lost during the rescue. Sheez, all they ever wanted to do was kick a football around!
It is official. A study to determine where the majority of psychopaths live has pinpointed a state in the US. Can you guess? Well, take a bow the good people of Connecticut you are the psychopath capital of the US, followed by California, New Jersey, New York and Wyoming. But wait, if you were thinking Washington DC, as we all were, you are kind of right…per capita it is double that of Connecticut. Well then District of Columbia, congrats you are the most psychotic than any individual state in the US. Oh, and if your occupation is one of these, company CEO, lawyer, media worker, salesperson, surgeon, police, clergy, chef or civil servant high chances are you or a colleague is a psychopath….just saying
A Chinese woman was so happy when she brought home a beautiful fluffy white Japanese Spitz puppy from a local pet store. She loved the little pooch but became worried that the dogs in the park were always scared of it. Then, when the puppy was three months old it stopped eating dog food, its nose became pointy and its tail grew very long. People began telling her pooch wasn’t a Japanese Spitz. In desperation, she took her dog to the local zoo and they identified her dog as a white fox. Sleep with one eye open, lady!
Apparently, insurance scams are a big thing in Asia, who knew? People are throwing themselves (very obviously) in front of vehicles in the hope of collecting a payout. Just bless. I love these people.
