Why are we cursing customer service agents

The data revealed that men cursed 16.5 percent more than women do, and were more likely to use "hard" curse words, which we won't list here. Women tended more toward "soft" curses, like "gosh," and "poop." The top five soft curses were "stupid," "shoot," "goodness," "suck," and "crap;" the top five hardest curse words were, well, too hard to share here.

...gosh is a curse word? I'm using crap and stupid when I want to be nice and avoid cursing - f#@*ing c*nt.

Kashmir fake photo: Fallout from the UN speech by Pakistan's Maleeha Lodhi

Proof that even brown people get confused on the various shades of brown.

"When Pakistan's permanent representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, held up a photograph of a scarred girl at the United Nations last weekend, she said she was offering proof of 'Indian brutality' in Kashmir. But the photo turned out to be that of a 17-year-old Palestinian girl, taken in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine. The teenager had been injured by shrapnel in an Israeli attack."

Freed hostage Joshua Boyle says captors killed infant daughter, raped his wife

"Freed years after being taken hostage in Afghanistan, Canadian Joshua Boyle, his American wife and their three children are back in Canada to 'the first true 'home' that the children have ever known,' after Boyle condemned his captors for raping his wife and authorizing 'the murder of my infant daughter.'"

You went to Afghanistan. Did you think it was going to be like Disneyworld?

'Bloody hour': Israeli bar discount for women on period

"The two women behind the idea in Jaffa say the 'bloody hour' is a recognition that women on their period deserve 'a favour'. They hope the subject of menstruation will be more openly discussed, including by men.The discount will be given on the basis of trust."

What kind of advert is this to men? Stay away because you won't be shagging anyone tonight. What's my discussion angle for menstruation as a man?

"I told him simply 'Here's how you'll remember: I'm on my period, so bring me red'."

That's EXACTLY why I want to avoid drinking with you at the bar...

The tiny US island with a British accent

"We were always taught in school that we did not speak properly... I was reading Charles Dickens and found out that many of these words that we have always been told were incorrectly pronounced were actually words that were used in England,"

"Like the Chesapeake, vowels are deep and wide, stretching many syllables into two. Consonants rise and fall like waves and conversations are peppered with words like ‘ort’ (‘ought’), ‘yorn’ (‘yours’), ‘sot’ (‘sat’) and ‘iggy’ (‘going to’)."

...at least it's not cockney rhymes.

Everest clean-up campaign begins

You would think outdoor adventurists are also naturally environmentalists. Let me reach the summit and take my selfie first. To hell with the rest of you behind me.

"Every year, local guides gather hundreds of kilograms of rubbish. This year's clean-up campaign is focused on items that could be recycled in the capital city, with privately-owned Yeti airlines helping to transport. They will continue to ship piles of recyclable rubbish throughout the year. Most of the waste left on the mountain is empty beer bottles and cans, empty food tins, and discarded mountaineering and trekking equipment. That can include oxygen bottles, which are essential for climbing at the highest altitudes."

Can you predict if you will be happy?

"'We don’t know if people are happy because they got rid of all the negative factors in their life or whether they need to do something more positive and active to build happiness,' says Peter Kinderman, professor of psychology at the University of Liverpool in the UK."

Oookay....

"'I think the secret of happiness is to understand our complex web of emotions, both the positive and negative, and for each of us to come up with a road map to address the factors that cause negativity and to enhance the factors that lead to happiness,' he says."

Which is it professor - you don't know or you think? This article told me nothing about being happy.

Russell Crowe divorce auction

Do actors and actresses get to keep the props or this is a Russell Crowe perk?

I can't imagine you can walk out off the set with a chainmail armour without someone from the studio questioning it. After all, I reckon some of this stuff does not roll off the factory floor in China.

How long are you going to live?

"Life expectancy may vary for people of different ages because it is calculated as the number of years a person is expected to live given they have already reached a certain age."

Bugger, you mean if I put in I'm 90, I can't expect to live another 90 years?

In this case literally: Tommy Robinson arrested, tried and imprisoned for 13 months in one day and a D Notice placed on the British media meaning a total media black out:


Like or loath him, Tommy Robinson remains an incovenient thorn in the side of the increasingly anarcho-tyrannical forces of the UK state.

The establishment right royally messed-up in the disappearing of Tommy and it's drawn attention and further scrutiny of the criminal connivance and betrayal of a generation of girls in the face of the depravity of Pakistani muslim heritage by the police, social services, local councils and the MSM with notable exceptions i.e. Andrew Norfolk of The Thunderer.

As the UK continues its descent into an anarcho-tyrranical police state, whatever happens now is victory, even if Tommy is murdered in the jail by Islamists we have our Steven Biko/Bobby Sands martyr and his death will reverberate and be yet another pivotal moment in the ongoing culture war....

The eyes of the world are watching now.....

Even Thumper will turn to cannibalism if pushed to the edge...

Snowshoe hares eat meat, and they don't seem all that picky about what kind of animal it comes from. A natural history paper published recently in the journal Northwestern Naturalist documents hares in Yukon's boreal forest scavenging on grouse, loon, other hares and even lynx. ‘It's weird seeing a bunny … just kind of getting its head right into the side carcass of another rabbit and consuming meat,’ said Michael Peers, who wrote the paper. ‘It's kind of, I guess, not what you'd expect.’”

Alabama mayor suggested 'killing out' gay people

"We live in a society where homosexuals lecture us on morals, transvestites lecture us on human biology, baby killers lecture us on human rights and socialists lecture us on economics! The only way to change it would be to kill the problem out. I know it's bad to say but with out [sic] killing them out there's no way to fix it."

The gays...

Thousands of dead fish in Kentucky river after Jim Beam warehouse fire

"Thousands of fish have died after a fire at a bourbon whisky distillery in Kentucky led to alcohol-contaminated water entering rivers and streams.

About 45,000 barrels of bourbon burned in the blaze at the Jim Beam warehouse, where firefighters from four counties were enlisted to help contain it.

But over the weekend, officials said runoff from firefighting efforts had led to an alcohol plume in one river.

Wildlife officials say it is causing low levels of oxygen in the water."

And here I thought they were dying of other happier reasons.
