OK, firstly I had no idea it was a “thing” but evidently you can get zapped in playgrounds by static electricity. Who knew right? A playground in Perth has been closed due to “the high levels of static electricity it is currently giving off,”. Seems people with pacemakers or cochlear implants are most at risk . Hmm, and here I was thinking people who hate messy hair. The playground will be closed until further notice.
PSST This is why we are known as the State of Excitement!!!!
Here’s the thing random lady, you don’t just waltz up to a kid on a playground ride and spin him so fast he screams for help. That is 6 months jail in Oz. OK fine, you get instant parole but it is still on your record. The random woman claims she was mucking around with a group of kids on a roundabout when she asked another kid if he wanted to join in as she was going to try and go really fast. He did, he screamed ( a lot) , she let him off. The problem? The kid was four. Enter parents, who ring the cops and random woman gets carted away in handcuffs.
That's no Happy Meal!
Ewh, ewh, ewh, a 2 year old girl at a Geraldton Maccas in Western Australia allegedly walked in from the playground chewing on a used condom. Her horrified father grabbed the child and washed her hands and mouth with soap (dear god, not in those toilets and not with their soap, she might catch som….ah never mind!!!). Evidently when he expressed his disgust to a junior manager he was told it was the second condom found in the playground that day. Sheez, it’s enough to put you off your fries. And why was a 2 year old left unsupervised in the playground again?
Want sauce with that? Hmm, I didn’t think so!
