Man Dies After Massive Stack Of Porn Magazines Falls On Him

His body wasn’t discovered for six months, after his landlord came to find out why the rent hadn’t been paid.

The man had hoarded a huge stockpile of porn, with magazines in every space in the apartment.

He’d trimmed some articles out of certain mags, but his collection tipped the scales at around six tons at the time of his death.


It’s how he would have wanted to go.


Yeah, rest in peace LewisD :(

Man Dies After Massive Stack Of Porn Magazines Falls On Him

A Japanese man has died after a huge stack of porn magazines fell on top of him.

The 50-year-old man had died buried underneath the porn mags, although it wasn’t clear whether he’d had a heart attack and fallen into the stack or if they had fallen on and crushed him.

In the end, he wasn't sure if he was coming or going.

Harry Potter Christmas present flies off in Southampton

ALL HARRY Potter fans have dreamed of mounting a broomstick and attempting to catch the golden snitch.

One Southampton girl will have to do this if she wants to see her present again.

Dale and Chantelle Bilton, and their family, bought their 11-year-old daughter, Chloe, a remote-controlled golden snitch from Hawkins Bazaar for Christmas, but the Quidditch game might have to wait for now.

Dale, 33, was testing it with Chloe whilst visiting family in Redbridge on Christmas Day, and all didn't go as planned.

The snitch flew away, and the Redbridge resident couldn't anything about it.

"We tried to test fly it inside and the instructions said you can take the wings off to get better control, and it seemed fine.

"As we took it outside we got it up in the air and tried turning it off and there was no reaction.

"I ran round the block of flats to see where it was.

"It kept going up and it just looked like a little dot.

"I just looked at her as if to say oops."

Luckily, Chloe was able to see the funny side of it.

Dale told the Echo: "She knew there was not much you could do about it.

"She is good like that bless her.

"I don’t mind that it has not been found yet, but it’s a golden snitch so everyone should get their brooms out because it’s Quidditch time."

Dale posted the story in a couple of pages on Facebook to see if anyone had seen it, and got some comical replies.

"I've had one person reply saying they saw it fly over the duck pond in the Common, and another to say it's been causing trouble at Gatwick Airport.

"It's normally a drone or helicopter so it's quite funny that its a golden snitch.

"All the airports must watch out for Harry Potter."

Luckily Chloe got a lot of presents from Father Christmas including a new pair of trainers, clothes and makeup accessories.

She is a massive Harry Potter fan and already owns a lot of toys.

Her brother received a remote control car, which he was testing at the same time, and managed to keep all four of its wheels planted.

Easter eggs spotted in supermarkets on Boxing Day

Shoppers across the country have been surprised to find Easter themed sweets and chocolate on the supermarket shelves, with the Co-op leading the supermarkets in getting them into their stores.

With many still working their way through their Christmas chocolates and mince pies stunned customers posted photos to social media.

As Easter falls on April 21 in 2019, the preemptive sales push comes nearly four months ahead of the day itself.

One Co-op branch in Ewell, Surrey, posted a photo to Twitter with the caption: ‘It’s only 115 days until Easter. Eggs in stock.’

News quickly spread across social media platforms, with one poster claiming that supermarket warehouses had taken delivery of the Easter themed confectionery a week before Christmas.

The comments:

Yes! And remember thete are only 362 shopping days left until Christmas!


I doubt that anybody is 'surprised' or 'stunned' by this. Dismayed, maybe. Dismayed also that the shops were open Boxing Day.


Is this greedy brands of profiteering Supermarkets either way shouldn't we tell them to go forth and multiply .


We live in a secular society where observance of Christian festivals is now a minority activity. Along with Easter eggs being available no the before the event, hot cross buns are available In some supermarkets throughout the year.

Think about it Barbara!

https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/n ... Zi8TsVVJu4

'Think about it Barbara!!!' - Could this be the most random roadside warning?

Image

Motorists travelling along a busy road in Co Offaly were greeted by quite an unusual warning sign on Friday.

Featuring a drawing of a U-turn, the sign appears to encourage a local bride to reconsider her upcoming nuptials.

The 'Think about it, Barbara!!!' roadside post was spotted by locals yesterday at Killeigh in Tullamore

It is understood that the ‘Barbara’ being advised is Barbara Berry, who paid no heed as she went ahead with her wedding to Mick Holland.

Ann-Marie Kelly took a photo of the sign and posted the tongue-in-cheek warning on Facebook.

“Initially when I saw the sign, I thought that he proposed and she had said no,” she told Independent.ie.

“There’s not many houses along the road but it’s a busy road so a lot of the locals and guests travelling up from the west would have seen it,” she said.

The photo was reposted by Midlands 103 radio station, garnering a large response from locals who knew the happy couple.

According to Ms Kelly, the couple were aware of the sign, believed to have been created by a bridesmaid, before it was put up.

Utter filth!

Council apologises over misplaced Uranus in children's park

Image

Plymouth City Council doesn't know Uranus from your elbow when it comes to our solar system.

The council has joked that "it's always unfortunate to find Uranus in the wrong place", in reference to what should be a useful sign teaching children the order of the planets.

The hilarious blunder was spotted by one eagle-eyed parent on the play apparatus in Teats Hill play park.

The gaffe is thought to have previously gone unnoticed for around ten years.

The child-friendly display shows nine planets, some stars and a person.

It shows the Sun, followed by Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus and Pluto, however, Uranus should be in-between Saturn and Neptune - oops.

A Plymouth City Council spokesman said: “It’s always unfortunate to find Uranus in the wrong place.

“We understand that this sign has been in place for around 10 years and has not been spotted before. Looks like we all need a Modern Very Easy Method that Just Sums Up Naming Planets.”

It's not really a hilarious blunder if nobody even spotted it for 10 years.

I am more concerned that they are still showing Pluto as a planet. The sign might have been there for a decade, but none of them have spotted they still have a dwarf planet amongst the real planets?

You say that but they are not as stupid as people in Hastings who seem to think they can park their cars inside cafes.

The Day Today in Bristol

Cheese toasties banned from Bristol park for fear of gangs

Cheese toasties have been banned from sale in a Bristol park amid fears a proposed hot food van could attract booze-fuelled antisocial behaviour and motorbike gangs.

Councillors have agreed to grant a provisional licence for cold food, such as ice cream, and tea and coffee in Monk's Park, Biddestone Road.


But the vendor would be barred from selling hot snacks following dozens of objections from residents, a ward councillor and the headteacher of a nearby secondary school.

In the past the park had been plagued by gangs of motorcycle-riding youths “terrorising” families, as well as late-night drunken disturbances, the city council’s public safety and protection committee heard on Tuesday.
