Mail Order Husbands!

Here are my favourite eligible bachelors frommailorderhusbands.net:

“Jered is my name, serving your needs is my game. Actually rugby is my game. Seeking.. a lady. I like the more natural look, somewhat earthy, but one that cleans up real well. I seem to be attracted to tall women with dark hair, smallish head, elongated torso, with natural finger nails (NO PAINTED HUSSIES!!!). ”
Country: Perth, Australia

“I deal in reality…and the reality is that I’m ready for love. I can chop lots of wood and can even climb a greased pole. I keep in shape by chasing chickens around my back yard. I keep my self clean and take baths weekly. ”
Country: West Virginia, U.S.A.

“My name is Daryl. I am 17, but will be turning 18 in September. I figure by the time we get to know each other I will be legal tender and we can marry. My parents are kicking me out after December and I’d like to meet a woman with a lot of money so we can have fun. I like women between 18-45, but would consider older if we do not have to touch a lot. ”
Country: Wooster Falls, ILL, U.S.A.

The Size of Tennis Balls

Tennis Canada’s ad featuring Maria Sharapova.

So this is a tennis rack then, eh?“‘I don’t see the sporting necessity of having Maria Sharapova’s breasts falling out of her top,’ says Prof. Richard Powers, who teaches sports marketing at Canada’s University of Toronto. Yet her breasts are hardly popping out of her top, which is so high as to not even show cleavage. So what’s the fuss? Eagle-eyed viewers can see a little bulge in her tennis dress made by her nipple. Tennis Canada quickly printed a new banner with the offending body detail airbrushed out. Meanwhile,
Sharapova pulled out of the tournament, citing an inflamed muscle — in her chest. (Toronto Star) …And here you thought the U.S.A. was the most hung up nation on the planet.” – This Is True

A reason to love the French

A passer-by runs past a book vending machine in a street of Paris, Friday, Aug. 19, 2005. Parisians craving Homer, Baudelaire or Maupassant in the middle of the night can get a quick literary fix at one of the French capital's five newly-installed book vending machines. Headline on the machine reads: 'Book anytime'.Only a truly civilized country would have vending machines for books! Now you can instantly gratify your midnight culture cravings at this 24 hour kiosk and have your book handed to you by a fancy mechanical arm!

Yahoo: “Regardless of whether they fall into the category of high culture or low, all books cost a modest $2.45.”

I really can't wait to see this!


Corpse Bride carries on in the dark, romantic tradition of Tim Burton’s classic films Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas, and hints at necrophilia in the most enchanting way to an enraptured audience of kiddies and adults.

Watch the trailer!

Women miners plunge to new depths in South Africa

From TheGoodNews newsletter:

The sweat is dripping off her face. The noise from the rock drill is deafening and water droplets are spitting through the air. Her whole body is vibrating and straining as she grasps the drill. Nandipha Nxiweni is a Learner Official at Impala Platinum Mine in Rustenburg. She is training to be a rock engineer and, as part of her training, she has to learn how to do all the other things in the mine as well, including actual manual labour.

She is part of the new Women in Mining programme implemented by Implats in response to the mining charter. The charter stipulates that all mines should have a 10 percent representation of women in mining by 2009. The Women in Mining project was only implemented in June 2004 and already Implats have got over 300 women working underground. According to Johanna Tau, the Transformation Manager at Impala Platinum, Rustenburg, they aim not only to achieve the targets but to do better than the targets. “Only good can be achieved by the amalgamation of men and women into the mining environment. They complement and bring out the best in each other.”

However, what first needs to be understood is the difference between women in mining and women at the mine. Women have been working at mines for years, mostly in admin and secretarial positions. The targets stipulated by the charter in those fields have already been met, or are very close to being realised. The target set for women in mining is much more difficult. It requires the women to be put into positions equivalent to the men, in other words to do the manual labour associated with mining. (more…)

I ♥ megabus!

Megabus.com was started in 2003 as part of an initiative to increase tourism to London by offering super cheap bus tickets to and from London. They operate from over 30 major locations in the UK, from as South as Plymouth all the way to Inverness in Scotland.

In September Nathan and I need to make three journeys into London within one week and I was beginning to worry about how much this was going to cost by train – they’re so expensive! Then I remembered megabus!! They have an extremely easy to use website where you can choose your journeys and pay through WorldPay or by phone. It costs from £1 a ticket in the South to just £16 from Scotland. They charge an additional 50p booking fee (not per ticket, per booking). I also scored 2 free tickets!!

Yes! Megabus.com is offering 100,000 free seats on its services to and from London. The seats are available on Monday to Thursday journeys from 12 September until 12 December.

I’m not the only person who loves megabus. They have fans all over the UK! Check out this megabus.com fan site, “THE BIGGEST, BEST & MOST IN-DEPTH MEGABUS GROUP ON THE INTERNET”.

101 three sixty five

“The New York Times says that Pluto should be downgraded to the status of a random ice ball. Sorry guys, that ain’t gonna happen. It comes up over and over at astronomical and planetary science gatherings, and the consensus is that once a celestial body has reached planetary status, it gets to keep it.” – 101 365

But mostly, it’s a photoblog.
