It's nutty, this world. It really is. Let's say you go through life, through it's ups and downs, trials and tribulations and so on, and finally, you meet the love of your life. You get to know each other, things work out fine, you fall in love, and you get married.
Perfect ending, eh?
Well, not if you later find out she's your twin sister. Blugh.
LONDON - Twins who were separated at birth got married without realizing they were brother and sister, a lawmaker said, urging more information be provided on birth certificates for adopted children. A court annulled the British couple's union after they discovered their true relationship, Lord David Alton said.
"They were never told that they were twins. They met later in life and felt an inevitable attraction, and the judge had to deal with the consequences of the marriage that they entered into and all the issues of their separation."
Duuuuuuuuude, that's like, all sorts of wrong, but i'm sure it would make a great movie plot! ANYWAY... As if that wasn't nuts enough. Let's say you finally do fall in love, get married, and the wife ISN'T your twin sister. Fair enough, and life works out fine, right? Well, not if you're a sneaky bastard and decide to go get a prostitute, and where better than the local brothel? After all, you do have a better selection than out there in the street; so you go, and guess who you find:
WARSAW (Reuters) - A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.
"I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming," the husband told the newspaper Wednesday. The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported.
Oh lol, I would have paid to see the look on both their faces! Do you think he would have paid her? Anyway, on to some idiots:
CANBERRA (Reuters) - A drunken Australian man who took a nap between railway tracks has had a miraculous escape after he was run over by a freight train and received only minor injuries and a bump on the head.
The 20-year-old, whose name was not released, fell asleep at a level crossing at Port Augusta, in South Australia state, when the train approached about 3.40 a.m., newspapers said on Friday. The driver saw the man and slammed on the emergency brake, but the train, carrying 3000 tonnes of freight, was unable to stop in time and rolled over him, halting only after it had passed.
The General Manager of the train company, Tony Aldridge, said railway tracks were "not the best place" to take a nap.
That wasn't very clever now, was it? I'm upset the crash didn't kill him and save the world from idiots of his kind. Well, at least he was drunk, right? Examples of stupid people who aren't drunk include those who die trying to relieve themselves out of the subway window:
SEOUL (Reuters) - The Seoul subway authority will install toilets in drivers' compartments after one of its engineers plunged to his death, apparently relieving himself from a train that was in motion.
The incident that prompted the move took place in December when a driver apparently suffering from diarrhoea leaned out of his compartment and fell on the tracks. He was hit by another train, local media reported. "Seoul Metro believes this step will help our staff better focus on transporting our citizens safely," it said in a news release.
What a way to die, eh? Consider the way the authorities tell the family about how he died: "Well you see, the guy had a bad case of diarrhoea, and stuck his butt out of the window, let it rip, and...". Sad, really. Anyway, on to the plain silly:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A telephone company cut off an FBI international wiretap after the agency failed to pay its bill on time, according to a U.S. government audit released on Thursday.
Lol, the FBI got their phone disconnected! Move over Batelco, there are some bigger telecom jerks out there! :D
