  • Australian police say they will review how a 12-year-old boy travelled alone to Bali after he had a row with his parents and used their credit card.

    The boy, from Sydney, booked flights and accommodation online after his parents decided to cancel a holiday to the Indonesian island, the family told the local Nine Network.

    He flew to Bali via Perth, presenting only his passport and school ID.

    Bloody brat, I hope he had a good holiday...:rolleyes:


    He needs a good making, locked in his room for a month and just given bread and water. In reality, he'll probably be rewarded for his "ingenuity" by being taken on another holiday.:S

  • It's a similar story to that one from last year of the hotel that hosted a event with all high profile people and they used scantily clad girls to serve drinks. This type of thing is on the way out.

  • Club 18-30 holidays in decline

    Club 18-30 - a brand known for cheap holidays full of sun, sex and ridiculous amounts of alcohol - could soon be coming to an end.

    Specialising in trips to Malia, Ayia Napa or Magaluf, the brand operated with the fitting slogan of: 'It's go big or go home and only the legendary will do’.

    At its peak the company was sending around 100,000 people abroad every year and even generated a cult TV series.

    Yet millennials today favour holidays that show them in a better light on social media - with passed out drunk photos no longer the look they are going for.

    Bizarre, this story.


    I thought the decline of Club 18-30 might be due to higher morals or standards among younger people today, but the decline is for a very different reason. Young people want posher holidays to show off about on social media. Looks like Facebook trumps everything, including sex and booze fuelled holidays, who would have thought it?:S

  • A school has been criticised after a live caged tiger was unveiled to Florida students at their prom.

    Christopher Columbus High School in Miami hosted its jungle-themed prom at a Hilton hotel on Friday.

    Concerns for the tiger's welfare have been growing on social media, with thousands of people taking to Twitter, Facebook and Reddit

    Wrong, wrong, wrong.:cursing::thumbdown:


    The place for these tigers is out in the wild. This is just ridiculous., what was the school thinking allowing this?

  • People are only too willing to play the race card. I had an altercation over tax law with an Asian guy on a forum and he accused me of 'racism' because I had the nerve to disagree with him, so I asked if he was disagreeing with me because I am female. He didn't appreciate the irony. :)

    Keeping it on the retail theme for a second, I had my first home delivery from Iceland today. Even though I haven't slept since Wednesday night, I chirpily greeted the delivery driver with a nice welcome, "good morning, what a lovely day it is today," (it was sunny and pretty warm) and the reply I got from him was "is it?." I thought miserable sod. But he delivered cake, so nothing was going to put me in a bad mood.^^

    I don't have any evidence, but I have heard that most wildlife disappears in areas where there is preponderance of Romanian immigrants, ie. swans, ducks from local ponds, hedgehogs, etc. A lot of dogs are being stolen recently. I wonder if there is a link.

    As much as I have a love/hate relationship with squirrels in my garden destroying all my plants, the hate part doesn't extend to wanting to eat them, or at least not yet!:)

  • 'Duck-eating' fish removed from Lakeside shopping centre lake

    A "rogue" fish has been removed from a lake after children reported seeing it eating ducks.

    The 25lb (11.3kg) catfish was caught at the man-made lake at the Lakeside shopping centre in Thurrock, Essex, by the Environment Agency (EA).

    A spokesman said fishing contests would be held at the lake to reduce the population of invasive species.

    Lakeside is not a million miles from me and my local area is increasingly having problems with invasive species of one kind or another.


    Some "kind" person released their pet terrapins into the lake of one of the area's parks about five years and the creatures have tripled in size, as well as multiplied in numbers. They also like to feed on unsuspecting toddler's feet...but are quite happy biting on anything they can.=O

    Skeleton of 'failed Houdini' is found handcuffed to a tree in front of a video camera, two years after he went missing in Russia

    • Ivan Klyucharev, 30, was last seen in May 2017 and his body was found in woods
    • Police say their main theory is that he tried an escape trick but failed and died
    • But they are also considering murder or a bizarre sex experiment gone wrong


    Russian police say their main theory is that the hiker and survival skills fanatic tried to recreate a Harry Houdini escape trick, but failed to pull it off and died in the forest.

    So the idea of taking a safety person with you just in case it all went horribly wrong never occurred to him?. Mind you, he was 28 at the time, hence a Millenial Snowflake, so im not suprised Common sense wasnt in his skill set.

  • Headline: "Clucking Hell


    An Indian takeaway served up an entire chicken's head in a customer's meal, it has been claimed.

    Nicole Rae posted pictures which appear to show the open beak and head of a chicken which has been coated in spices and cooked.


    Nicole, from Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, claimed she bought the takeaway from Tandoori Mahal in the suburb of Cambusnethan.

    She wrote on social media: “Just a warning - if you're ordering from Tandoori Mahal in Cambi, you might get a chicken's head.”

  • One of my old neighbours (one I liked, as opposed to the scum) had a fear of spiders too, so much so that she would barely go out in the garden. I think if she had ever seen a tarantula, that would probably have killed her.


    When I was out in my garden earlier, because I was digging various things up, including oak trees, I cut my leg a bit. The worrying thing was, for about a second, a false widow spider dropped on my leg and I quickly got rid of it. I didn't fancy getting bitten in exactly the wrong place!=O^^
