Bit of a bummer... The World in Brief.
A 48-year-old man dangled upside-down from a chairlift for 15 minutes without trousers and underpants at Vail, Colorado, after the fold-down seat was not in the correct lowered-down position. He fell through the gap as he got on the high-speed lift. Onlookers rushed to take mobile phone pictures of the man's posterior.

In Brief...
A GYM in London has replaced its dumbells with human weights... including midgets who
shout encouragement to motivate excercise. They introduced the bizarre regime with human
weights ranging from 155kg man to a 30kg female midget.
The human dumbbells wear black leotards with their weights printed across their chests.

IN BRIEF......
We were told a while back that a glass of wine a day was good for the heart... all the heart attack patients went on winery tours to find a nice glass of the grape to help strengthen their hearts.
WELL, now we are being told a SMALL glass of wine a day can more than DOUBLE the risk of cancer.. a study has claimed.
It says consuming one 125ml glass of wine increases the chance of developing mouth and throat cancer by 168%.
Small daily doses of alcohol were the most harmful.The cause is above all the transformation of ethanol in alcohol to acetaldehyde, which damages DNA....... oh well. another headache!!!


  1. haha, that's the stuff I've missed. Feels like home now. Wow imagine the first one, that's my dread, I hate thinking people are looking at my clothed behind when I go up the stairs/escalator, but exposed!
    I guess if you drink enough of the wine you get to a place where you don't care what happens?
    Cheers, xxx

  2. You just can`t get good help anywhere these days....See a disaster and the first thing people think of is taking a picture...
    As for the wine NO PRBLEMS here as I don`t drink it...
