    Local radio station keeps getting hijacked by song about masturbation
    The communications regulator is hunting a radio pirate who has repeatedly hijacked the airwaves of a local station with a deliberately offensive song about masturbation.

    The Winker’s Song, a 1970s ditty by an artist going by the name Ivor Biggun, has been illegally forced on to the output of Mansfield 103.2 at least eight times in the last month.

    Surgeons remove 27 contact lenses from woman’s eye
    Rupal Morjaria, a specialist trainee in ophthalmology, told Optometry Today: “None of us have ever seen this before.

    “It was such a large mass. All the 17 contact lenses were stuck together. We were really surprised that the patient didn’t notice it because it would cause quite a lot of irritation while it was sitting there. She was quite shocked. She thought her previous discomfort was just part of old age and dry eye.”

    So I'm a 73 year old runner who's super pissed off 'cause I've been sidelined for the past 3 weeks with achilles tendonitis. Arrggggg !!! :rant: If you're a runner, I have no doubt that you totally get where I'm coming from with this. .............but that's another story.

    This story is about a lady who decided to take up running 'cause she needed a new challenge and she decided to take on this new challenge at 100 years old.

    And here.............she's competing, at 101. Simply amazing.

    Coffee product recalled for containing Viagra-like ingredient
    The best part of waking up, indeed.

    A coffee company from Grand Prairie, Texas has pulled one of its products after it was found to contain a hidden drug that gives a Viagra-type boost. Bestherbs Coffee voluntarily recalled its New Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee last week due to the undeclared presence of “desmethyl carbodenafil” — a chemical similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.

    Apple's Series Three Apple Watch to Include Cellular Connection

    Apple's third-generation Apple Watch, set to launch later this year, will include its own LTE for a standalone cellular connection, reports Bloomberg.

    With a cellular connection, the new Apple Watch models will be untethered from the iPhone, able to stream music, send messages, download apps, and connect to the internet without the need for an iPhone.

    Cuban diplomats expelled from Washington over incident that harmed U.S. personnel in Havana, State Department says

    It is a mysterious episode ripped from the pages of a Cold War spy novel.

    Despite ostensibly improved ties between the U.S. and Cuban governments, the State Department on Wednesday confirmed it had expelled two Cuban diplomats from Washington because of an "incident" in Havana that harmed U.S. personnel there.

    State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert would not provide details, except to say it had caused medical but non-life-threatening problems for an unspecified number of U.S. Embassy personnel based in Havana.

    The Associated Press, one of the few Western news outlets with offices in the Cuban capital, reported from Havana that the injuries may have been caused by sonic equipment that Cuban intelligence officers installed in the U.S. Embassy or residences of its staff.

    This would not be unusual. Through the decades, even when the United States and Cuba did not have formal diplomatic relations, Cuban intelligence agencies specialized in surveilling Americans stationed on, or visiting, the island.

    That the spy equipment would cause harm, however, is new, and the reason was not immediately clear.

    "Some U.S. government personnel who were working at our embassy in Havana, Cuba, on official duty ... reported some incidents which have caused a variety of physical symptoms," Nauert said. "We don't have any definitive answers about the source or the cause of what we consider to be incidents."

    She added, "We're taking that situation seriously, and it's under investigation right now."

    She said two Cuban diplomats were expelled from Washington in retaliation in late May.

    The incidents date to late last year, she said.

    The U.S. diplomatic mission in Havana was only elevated to status of embassy in 2015, when then-President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro reestablished full relations after half a century of Cold War hostilities. Before then it was a low-level facility with a skeleton crew.

    Tiki torch manufacturer president ‘appalled’ at protesters

    By The Associated Press August 15, 2017 8:23 am
    [​IMG]
    In this Friday, Aug. 11, 2017 photo, multiple white nationalist groups march...


    COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — The head of the Georgia-based company that makes Tiki torches says he was offended by images of white supremacists marching through Charlottesville, Virginia, using his company’s products.


    W.C. Bradley Co. President and CEO Marc Olivie told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer on Monday that the Columbus-based company’s staff was “appalled and saddened” that the torches were “used by people who promote bigotry and hatred.”


    Many of the protesters who marched Friday carried Tiki torches. The Tiki brand is a product of Lamplight, a Wisconsin company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bradley company. Lamplight made a Facebook post Saturday saying, in part, “TIKI Brand is not associated in any way with the events that took place in Charlottesville and are deeply saddened and disappointed.”

    Too bad we don't have a president thats actually appalled by these idiots.

    Noisy Night Prowler Turns Out To Be Adorable Bird Of Prey

    Police in Diamond Bar responded to a call regarding a night time break in. You won't believe who-who-who they captured.


    By Ashley Lud

    DIAMOND BAR, CA —When Diamond Bar-Walnut Sheriff's officers officers responded to an early morning burglary call last week they discovered things were not what they seemed. Officers responded to a 911 call where four girls were convinced their home was being burglarized and that someone was downstairs, according to the dispatcher reports.

    "The 911 call came with a girl and her three sisters who locked themselves in an upstairs bedroom because they heard a noise coming from the downstairs living room," a Diamond Bar Police Department spokesperson reported.

    The dispatcher was told that the four girls could hear someone moving furniture or other items downstairs. Deputies responded to the "possible burglary in progress," and searched the outside of the house.

    "They found no signs of entry into the house and all the doors and windows were still secure," Diamond Bar police said.

    Next, officers asked the homeowner to come downstairs to unlock a door so they can check the inside of the house when they heard a loud scream from inside.

    Believing that the homeowner may be in trouble, the deputies prepared to force entry into the house when suddenly they heard the homeowner yell, "It's an owl, it's an owl."

    [​IMG]
    "Once inside, the deputies were able to throw a blanket over the bird, capture it, and then released him outside," they said.

    [​IMG]
    No owls were harmed during the capture, and there was no indication as to how the owl entered the home.
