Selling your soul on Ebay

A Dutchman is offering a 'soul in good condition with no serious damage' on eBay tells Ananova.

The initial price is set at £6. But hey, who haven't want a good soul instead of your own, sinful and black.

Another guy, a web-designer from Iowa, is selling his soul on Ebay and he is saying that his soul is sited in a glass jar. If he get rid of his soul the next thing he is thinking of selling is his morals.

Somehow that won't be a bargain I say...

Reporter wrestles Blitzen

To be a reporter can be difficult. Ask Meghan Stapleton who was knocked to the ground by one of the reindeers at the sleight of Santa, located at the North Pole. Watch the pics or the video at

But if Stapleton had did her research she had understood better than to try to hug "Blitzen". I don't think that she will be member of the Reindeer Liberation Front whose mission is to free Rudolph and his friends.

Get her ready and willing

This is surely a technology-wonder: Slightest Touch is not for give the woman orgasms but to make all that which we use to call "fore-play" fast and safe.

The perfect X-mas-gift for the husband who won't miss the Saturday game but have a wife that want to do the weekly 'fandango'.

As one of the men who let his woman test it says: "It warms the oven. It brings women to the one-yard line.... It's a wonderful product. I think the world of it." as Wired News tells in the flick about The Orgasmatron (sounds like something from a bad B-movie).

Bad choice of song

A lawyer was reported singing 'I shot the sheriff' when leaving court after a trial on a cop-killing. His client was the one accused for the shooting.

The most funny part in this is one of the cops statement: "Where was that dignity and moderation in that terrible performance of the Bob Marley song?"...

I mean - hey, if the lawyer can't sing he could be rather lucky that the guy didn't try to sing 'Copkiller'.

A ghost on film

A rather peculiar pic have been put on almost every paper. It's a pic from the guards of Hampton Court Palace, a Henry III medieval castle which is well-known of it's ghosts and of course - it has been told to be haunted of a plethora of lost souls.

The people of the castle not ruling out a hoax but they can't explain the picture.

The strange thing of it all is that the ghost i closing a fire escape. And fire-doors wasn't to wellknown in the Medieval England but from what the guards tell they can't find an earthly explanation. Read the story in The Sun or in The Mirror.

Ananova tells about the man swallowed 200 live worms in an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records. Earthworms, which was on the menu, is about four inches long each and of course filled with proteines and vitamines. And C Manoharan, as the hungry Indian is called, did it in twenty seconds.

Wonder if he chewed well.

Dept. of Driving-Careful

Blondes are better drivers

Sometimes one can wonder if the scientists and lovers of statistical analysis is really sane. They say that 'Blondes are best drivers' . Oh wee...

The story is that blonde chics is less involved in traffic incidents than brunettes. It wouldn't be the possibility that blondes is less able to have their license?

This joke is fun: A blonde made several attempts to sell her old car. She was having a lot of problems finding a buyer because the car had 360,000 miles on it. She discussed her problem with a brunette that she worked with at a bar.
The brunette suggested, "There may be a chance to sell that car easier, but it's not going to be legal."
"That doesn't matter at all," replied the blonde. "All that matters it that I am able to sell this car."
"Alright," replied the brunette. In a quiet voice, she told the blonde, "Here is the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop around here. Tell him I sent you, and he will turn the mileage counter back on your car to 40,000 miles. Then it shouldn't be a problem to sell your car."

The following weekend, the blonde took a trip to the mechanic on the brunette's advice.

About one month after that, the brunette saw the blonde and asked, "Did you sell your car?"

"No!" replied the blonde. "Why should I? It only has 40,000 miles on it."

Ananova is telling the story of Raymond Allen Gray Jr who changed his name to the more unusual Bubba Bubba Bubba. This Illinois-guy probably didn't think of the strange name his son will have: Bubba Bubba Bubba Jr.

Yes. It's the evil influence of The Kermit Show that now are making people crazy. It's the psychotic influences on the distressed Generation X:ers whose only cultural waypoints is Sesame Street, The Muppet Show and such strange TV-flicks.

"Prakashi, a widow who lives in New Delhi, has been staging a sit-in outside the city police commissioner's office after three failed attempts to hand over the money. The Hindustan Times says officers refused to accept the polythene bag full of money because they were worried about being accused of wrongdoing. A police inspector later accompanied the woman and handed the money over to her relatives. Prakashi, 75, says she wanted to thank the police for keeping her neighbours from playing loud music late into the night." Ananova is tellinge the whole story.

Remember to turn off the camera

Another one of the brats have forgotten that every person is the other person's wolf (homo homini lupus a proverb from Plautus in ancient Rome). Paris Hilton, great-granddaughter of the founder of the Hilton Hotel is trying to get rid of the videocopies where she is having sex with her boyfriend. And as anyone else with money and something cranky to cope she hired a PR consultant: "I hear that PR consultant Dan Klores recently bagged $50,000 from the Hilton family, mainly for advising their controversial daughter Paris Hilton, 'Whenever you see a camera, cry.' " as the outspoken columnist Michael Musto of
The Village Voice

Instead of that tip I can give her one just for free: Don't use videocam to spice up your sexlife if you're a celeb (or planning to be).

Or as the New York Times columnist John Leland jokes that the only thing that could really "damage her reputation as a vapid, self-involved rich girl" would be a videotape showing her doing something worthwhile with her life, such as "developing mathematical models for a low-cost irrigation system to be used in the developing world."

Ananova is telling about an Indian barber who use candles to trim his customers hair. His explanation is that using fire on hair is an old tradition and that "Scissors create a mess with hair all over, this style avoids that as the hair simply burns.".

Me myself just can say that the smell of burnt hair would make me choose some other barbershop.

Brother. If you look like a car-crash you truly is in a bad state of being chosen being father to the beautiful girls children.

"The researchers showed that men with the healthiest, fastest sperm were rated as the most facially attractive by women. The characteristics of a person's face have long been regarded as an indicator of health. " New Scientist though give the ugly guys some hope: women tend to also seek economical stability and such things. That´s probably the explanation that guys like Bill Gates, George Bush and Bjorn Borg have wifes.

"i put hairpins on my nipples when i masturbate". No, it's not a confession of my own sick ways of touching myself - it's a confession from I said it before and I'm never given an opp to take it back: there's so many strange ideas on the Net.

"the idea is for anyone to anonymously confess to anything. it actually feels kind of good to know that someone will read it." the site is telling us.

Thinking of it seriously it seems to be the post-modern confession-booth, without God and without the consequences. Just confession and in a way that gives you (anonymously) fifteen minutes of fame.

Dept. of Emancipation

Master and servant

This is so damn stupid that I have just to cite it:

"The County of Los Angeles actively promotes and is committed to ensure a work environment that is free from any discriminatory influence be it actual or perceived. As such, it is the County's expectation that our manufacturers, suppliers and contractors make a concentrated effort to ensure that any equipment, supplies or services that are provided to County departments do not possess or portray an image that may be construed as offensive or defamatory in nature.

One such recent example included the manufacturer's labeling of equipment where the words ''Master/Slave'' appeared to identify the primary and secondary sources. Based on the cultural diversity and sensitivity of Los Angeles County, this is not an acceptable identification label.

We would request that each manufacturer, supplier and contractor review, identify and remove/change any identification or labeling of equipment or components thereof that could be interpreted as discriminatory or offensive in nature before such equipment is sold or otherwise provided to any County department. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance."

The use of "master/slave" is when putting hard drives into a computer. A nice try of emancipation of hard drives...

It´s not only the freak of pop-culture Michael Jackson (well, the first freak - and when Marilyn Manson is setting a show) that is charged for child abuse. R.Kelly is charged for possessing child porn and to have filmed himself in sexual acts with a minor.

The most creative in all this is his answers on the allegations
: his defense has been that there is a conspiracy from former managers and being proven to be the one on the tapes his defense is that someone have tampered with the pictures and morphed him into the video.

A trip around the world of the former half billion-CEO Wade Dokken. He was one of the bosses of the Swedish insurance-company Skandia in their America-based sister-company. Now he and his family is on a trip, after he got half a billion Swedish crowns (about quarter of a billion in dollar) when he signed out. And they are putting up a tripdiary at the Net.

That might be nothing to write home about if the fact wasn't that the company Skandia have done bad bizniz and the leaders have given themselves apartments, fat bonuses and lost big bucks at the worlds stock-markets - money that ordinary people have saved in their pension-funds to get a swell time when ending the working cycle.

Anyone who have worked in an office-space where there have been people working with less or none computerknowledge can sign that quotation.

Dream Diet?

A teen who suffered from fainting spells received medical advice that itself sounds like a prescription for blackouts: U.K. docs put Ashley Clarke on a steady diet of junk food, salt pills and beer. Clark, 18, suffers from Gower syndrome, a condition in which the heart slows down and the blood vessels dilate, causing a drop in blood pressure. Salty, fatty foods help raise Clarke's blood pressure, the doctors reason, and the alcohol is good for his heart. The bizarre regimen -- which Scotland's Daily Record dubbed the "Fatkins diet" -- turned Clarke's life around. "Eating junk food is probably every 18-year-old's dream," he said, "but for me it's more than that -- it's a passport to a normal life." Wired News: Furthermore

If a girl comes on strong and says, 'I really dig your body and I want to fuck the shit out of you,' I just decide whether or not I like her. If I do take her home, I try to make sure I get just as much out of it as she does. The word exploited therefore wouldn't apply."

"I get laid on purpose. I can't sleep before a competition and I'm up all night, anyway, so instead of staring at the ceiling I figure I might as well find somebody and fuck."

"When Manso asked whether he used "dope," XX replied, "Yes, grass and hash--no hard drugs. But the point is that I do what I feel like doing. I'm not on a health kick.".

Can you guess? Is it maybe a politician? No, that would to strange...
