Stupid/funny/cool/outrageous/scary/weird/crazy Stuff You Read/saw In The News/on The Internet

Recommended Posts

I've been pondering starting this thread for a little while because I got sick of the "Things To Do While Waiting For Death" thread, and how everything has to be parsed into a supposedly cute/funny sentence that fits in with the concept of the thread.

Like, if I was posting this news story which I just saw, in that thread, I would have to say...

"Pretend it's the 1950s".

And that's getting kind of lame so I decided to make this all-purpose thread for every time you want to share something you saw on the internet/in a newspaper.

Saw this in the Daily Mail (where else?).

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2543580/The-people-STILL-living-like-1951-Captivating-portraits-look-inside-Americas-Rockabilly-community.html

article-2543580-1ADA3B8400000578-613_964

What does everyone think? I have to admit I wouldn't mind tasting a bit of the American 1950s life (especially the girls) but it must get weird after a while.

There really are some knobs out there. However having some strange calling to the 50s is nothing to the loon who celebrates Christmas everyday (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1088872/Man-celebrates-Christmas-day-scaling-celebrations-credit-crunch.html). Perhaps we should just have a looney thread :)

Sad to see Dom Joly reduced to such lame gimmicks just to get himself in the papers.

This so called Mr Christmas lives in the town next to me, and not only is he a cock, but, according to many of his neighbours and local townsfolk, he's an absolute fucking bullshitter as well, and has been trading off the back of this farce for many years. Mr Christmas, my arse - Mr Fucking Twat more like.

Bad things happen when you take the lyrics from 1970s hits too seriously. That's how my uncle ended up in jail for buggering a swan.

On my main footie forum there is a 'random shite' thread much like this and yesterday someone posted a 10 sec gif of a girl kneeling in a wooden box (I thought it was a magicians trick at this point), then gets covered in concrete and when set in a block, starts the porn shoot.

The next post was a map of the World, coloured in by a countries principle sport.

Would have been funnier if he'd shot the burning computer a couple of times first.

The latest bullshit "apocalypse"/horror movie-type scare story is a drifting, abandoned Russian ship full of "diseased cannibal rats", that "may" be heading towards the UK.

http://uk.news.yahoo...-132016334.html

Unless these rats know how to lower a lifeboat and row it to shore, I don't think we've got too much to worry about.....

If ''cannibal'' there would be none left after a while or am I missing something?

Yeah, you'd think so, although the phrase "breeding like rats" might have some relevance here, I'm not sure.

 

Maybe the little blighters have set aside some separate rooms on the ship which are designated "shagging only, no eating". Just to keep the numbers up and keep the party going!

I had the misfortune to be @ 12 when The Rats, Lair etc came out, and cut about on a few relatives farms a lot.

 

I hate the fuckers. Big time.

 

Might be my only ''real'' phobia.

I like rats. Used to keep them as pets. They're more intelligent than some people I know.

Rats I don't really mind... animals tend not to bother me, bar some insects.

 

Granted I live with cats so I never have had to deal with rats as vermin.

A "glow in the dark toilet" to help you pee at night... because, apparently, simply turning the bathroom light on at night is just impossible and out of the question........

They might have a point. In the first flat I lived in, my bathroom had no windows, hence my extractor fan came on automatically every time you switched the light on. That in turn woke up the baby, therefore I used to pee in the dark.

Turning the light on wakes me up more, so I prefer to leave it off in order to maintain my level of sleepiness so that I can sink comfortably back into slumber on my return.

After his sacking Avram Grant decided - after a chance comment from a Russian interviewer - to search for his grandparents graves. They had been victims of WW2 in a tragic way:

 

Living near Warsaw they fled the Germans due to being Jewish but the Russians then branded them 'fascists' and exiled them to Komi - an area governed by GULAG system. They died when his Dad was 13 and he somehow survived without them for 4 years before getting away from their tiny village.

 

Anyway the nearest town to the now vanished village is Syktyvkar and when there preparing to find the graves a local historian told him that buried in the local cemetery were the grandparents and parents of Roman Abramovich...in a strange twist of fate his grandparents had been exiled there from Lithuania in 1940 in exact same circumstances as Grant's: escaped Nazis, sent to camp by Soviets.

 

Grant laid flowers at their grave...and it seems neither man knew when he was appointed Chelsea manager.
