The Dutch are more used to seeing their Royal Family mixing with the citizens on a daily basis, a King flying fare paying passengers around is not something that even the Dutch, we imagine, thought could happen. The Dutch citizens were quite used to seeing King Willem-Alexander’s grandmother Queen Juliana riding the streets on her bicycle, and Queen Juliana was particularly interested in the problems of developing countries, the refugee problem, and had a very special interest in child welfare, particularly in the developing countries, and on the night of 31 January 1953, the Netherlands was hit by the most destructive storm in more than five hundred years. Dressed in boots and an old coat, Queen Juliana waded through water and slopped through deep mud all over the devastated areas to bring desperate people food and clothing, permanently endearing her to the citizens of the Netherlands.

We can think of numerous way to spend ones birthday, Robert Dyer probably had some exciting plans too, but we are sure that he did not plan to spend his 89th birthday in the unfortunate way that he did.
Men, we understand, are prone to exaggerate; some going to “extreme lengths” when it comes to their “manhood”, now we are not sure if Richard Henry Patterson is exaggerating when he told a court in Florida that Francisca Marguinez choked to death during oral sex because his penis is so large!
Can you imagine the letter that “Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells” and similar correspondents to newspapers might have to say if the UK government allows prisoners to have “blow up” sex dolls in their prison cells? Mr, or could it have been Mrs or Miss Disgusted had an absolute “field day” when prisoners stopped the disgraceful “slopping out” procedure before WC’s were installed in all HMP cells; even more so when it was revealed to the “flog ‘em” brigade that colour televisions were not only in the main recreation areas, but in the cells of inmates; place is going to the dogs Colonel!
That’s right folks, watching porn, specifically virtual reality porn, is shockingly good for your health – just ask the experts!
Leading researchers in the field of technosexuality aka sextech, believe virtual reality porn is an erotic game-changer. Gone are the days when we simply watched porn… now we get to actually experience it. VR lets users realize mind-body pleasure, immersive sensation and simulated connection that feels effectively real. Utilizing VR takes users out of the position of externalized voyeur, rather immersing them in the scene for an internalized sense of involvement and indulgence. (more…)
The marketing slogan for Marmite is that you will “either love it or hate it” for one person ( your correspondent) it is a case of hate, but for Shelly McClellan, 45, she leaves people in no doubt about where she stands, she absolutely loves it, so much so that she even spreads it on pasta as the sauce! Now that is not quite what you will find on your holidays in the food lover’s paradise in Italy, but to Shelley, growing up in Burton on Trent that is of no concern.
Well they do say that home is where your heart is and for one Japanese man it was above a public toilet in Usuki, south-western Japan. We hear news stories regularly about the difficulty for young people here in the UK to find a home that they can afford. Homelessness apparently is not confined to any particular country it would seem, Japan is not immune either and it is not the only developed country where homelessness and poverty have led to unusual living conditions. In 2013, a Chinese woman was found to have lived in a hole in the ground in Beijing for 20 years, using the toilets at a nearby park for water and washing facilities.
Piano tuner Martin Backhouse got quite a shock when he discovered what he thought was some bags of moth repellent inside the instrument he was fine tuning, when it turned out to be, not camphor balls, but 633 Sovereigns and 280 half Sovereigns dating from 1847 to 1915.
Some men simply love machines; grey haired old men can be seen on most sunny summer days in classic sports car hood down, right foot hard down on the “loud pedal” trying to re-live the years of their youth, but now in a car that they only dreamed of then! Others cannot wait to pull on their leathers and enjoy the thrill of sitting astride a two wheeled 240 horse power motor bike powering through the country roads. (more…)
We were all children once, and for most women there is an inbuilt maternal gene that craves to have, to hold and nurture them, well that is for most women. For BBC wildlife presenter Kate Humble however, she has claimed that she was lacking this maternal gene. For her and husband of 25 years, Ludo Graham, this has never presented a problem. But, it was during a discussion with Ludo that she had what could only be described as a panic attack when they wondered what might happen if just one of them changed their mind. During the discussion, Kate admitted that she broke down and in a response that can be described as being primeval said: “I cannot do it I’m never going to change my mind”. (more…)
