"I sympathize with people not sitting beside you on trains. I am a 5.4 inch white woman, lived in Japan for many years and, outside of the Tokyo metropolis have lost count of the amount of times I have sat in a full train carriage and the only empty spaces were either side of me."

This comment appears after a sad article by a bloke who hates being black.

But I did burst out laughing, I must admit. Smile

"Rakesh Bhayani, 41, has been found guilty of murdering a wealthy accounts clerk turned part-time escort in order to fund his gambling habit."

But the victim was a woman and it was the murderer who had the habit! Mad

Full story:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-25447856

Quote:
Former Steps member Ian 'H' Watkins has received a public apology after his photo was used on a website reporting on the Ian Watkins abuse case.

E! Entertainment Television apologised for using a picture of the pop star to illustrate a story about Lostprophets singer Ian Watkins on E! Online.

The US company's solicitor expressed regret for the "distress and damage" the photo's publication had caused.


Ian Watkins was sentenced to 35 years this week for 13 child sex offences.

The rock singer, 36, from Pontypridd, was jailed for 29 years and will spend a further six years on licence.

A judge at the High Court in London heard that 'H' had already been "receiving abuse" from people who confused him with his namesake before the error was made .

As well as having the same name as the Lostprophets singer, the judge was told, both men are of similar age and originally come from Wales...


Woah, that's pretty bad, especially as everywhere else were really careful to avoid the confusion.

Cut your hedge, or risk a hefty bill warns Cornwall Councl


The trouble is, the trees are just so aggressive:

"When reports are received of trees hitting vehicles, obstructing footways or restricting visibility, the local Safety Inspector will visit the site, locate the owner and request that appropriate trimming takes place to overcome the problem."

BBC caption fail: Welcome to the year of the whores

As millions of people around the world celebrate the Chinese New Year, something appears to have been lost in translation at the BBC.

Instead of welcoming in the year of the horse, a subtitle error saw the BBC usher in the ‘year of the whores’.

How many things are wrong with this headline?

Pity it wasn't an alternative clothes shop... the bizarre fashion might have made more sense. Laughing

This one has been appearing a lot lately... how hard is it to take seriously?

On the plus side, we're seeing a lot more of the 'dalek' view of Riverside Plaza now it's out of favour.

Reminds me of an item in FT several years ago in which a small local paper had written "head on a stick" instead of "hedonistic".
