Anyone who has read any of the Dennis Wheatley novels will remember “The Ka of Gifford Hillary” which is a horror/supernatural story series of events in which Gifford Hillary was killed by a ray gun invented by his scientist friend. This is when readers find out that his spirit, or Ka, leaves his body and tries to communicate with the real world. He has always been terrified of being buried alive and stated that the lid of the coffin should not be screwed down; that air holes should be bored in its ends and that the family vault should not be closed until one week after his coffin had been lowered into his grave. The story is fascinating and is a highly recommended read.

Fortunately for the shocked shopper, the class ‘A’ narcotic was not mixed in with the instant milkshake! What he did notice was that the lid of the large tub of Nesquik which he had bought appeared to be not snugly fitted, for a very good reason which became apparent when he opened the product. He soon found that there hidden among the sugary chocolate powder, was a 250g packet of the Class ‘A’ narcotic.
Well it is very unlikely that you would ask for this exactly when ordering your takeaway at Dominoes, which is one of the nation’s most famous takeaways, but it is possible that you may just get that, or even wedges bought from Aldi!
Oh we can hear the choruses of “I just cannot believe it” from parents and particularly the over sixties we imagine, as a school in Blatchington Mill Sussex is asking children if they think it’s a good idea for them to get an extra hour in bed. Well naturally the kids are going to say no we would much rather get to school earlier.
As everyone knows, the eye is very sensitive and if a foreign body such as a piece of grit, or a small flying insect goes into it, it can be not only painful, but could cause some damage. Most peoples’ natural reaction is to immediately rub the eye, but that can make matters worse.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, the famous saying tells us, and so it appears for one particular woman in North East India as she ran down the street with her boyfriend’s penis after cutting it off. No she had not caught him playing naughty with another woman; it was down to the tradition of parents arranging marriage for their offspring.
She has already 230,000 followers, but that is not enough for “vlogger” Lena, she is desperate to get to a million and if she reaches this target, she has promised to record herself having sex with fellow vlogger Adam22. Oh but wait, he has to reach that magical figure also!
