I have to ask...
...did she give him a freebie?
Pot, meet kettle. Sounds like they are made for each other.
A Polish bloke got a bit of a shock when he decided to nip out to a brothel - his missus was among the establishment's employees. According to tabloid Super Express, the woman had been earning extra cash on the side while hubby thought she was working in a store in a nearby town. He told the paper: "I was dumbfounded. I …
I read this story elsewhere yesterday, but I just knew it'd get picked up by El Reg! It's one of those stories that's too good to pass up.
The question I want to know the answer to is, Did the woman decide she needed to earn extra money working at the Brothel, because the husband was spending to much money at the Brothel, or Did the Husband decide to visit the Brothel because his wife was away too much, and as they had extra money coming in, he could now afford it?
It's a catch 22, chicken and egg question.
Reminds me of the couple I knew who were about to get married. A week before he wedding husband to be was away on a course to do with work. When he came back he had a little confession to make: while he was away, well, err, he'd been a naughty boy... And, it transpired, whe had a confession to make: she's been a naughty girl...
So they called the wedding off, three days before the day, on the grounds that they weren't good enough for each other... All their friends of course came up with the above response. As can be imagined the bride's father was less than impressed with picking up the bill for the whole non-event, and was virtually unprintable when two weeks later they it was all on again...
Yeah, I've heard that one: people find a scuba diver, in full gear, dead in a burnt forest. What the hell happened? Well, you know those helicopters with the big buckets full of water, to throw on the flames? So, according to this legend the bucket gets filled at the sea, and... you get the picture.
You know, don't open your mouth if you don't know what you are talking about. Here in Alberta, Canada, there is this little town called Camrose, where four sick ******* actually cooked some family's cat in a microwave. The level to which this is appaling can't be stated.
The people responsible for this have encited an entire Nation against them. Gods know I'd lynch the ******* given a half a chance. "Urban Legends" have a disturbing tendancy to become reality, given enough time.
1) Cat in microwave - true - US idiot in the 1980's thought it was a good way to dry cat after it got wet - cat cooked, he sued the microwave manufacturer (think it was DAEWOO but not sure) and won. hence warning not to dry pets in microwave
2) Diver in tree - almost 100% false since they do not use salted water for putting out fires - kills the soil - only fresh water.
3) guy who worked out he could take the door off his micrwave and it would still work (stuffed paper into the catch to engage the switch). Cooked his liver.... now what would Antony Hopkins say to that.......
Sorry Walter but they do use salt water. I spent some of my summer vacation watching Canadairs doing trial runs in a bay in the south of France. Have also seen them bombing the fires in the area before.
The main reason why they tend not to use salt water is that the sea is normally too rough for the pickup of the water. Sheltered bays get used all the time.
Trust me, the fire does way more damage than the piddly amount of salt in the water. It is pretty awesome watching 8 of them come in one after the other and have them take off again right over your head fully laden. The 30 mins later they are back.
Cat in microwave - no, still not true.
Microwave, jammed door?
If you're going to claim myths as truth, you really, really need to cite sources. This is the internet, people here have a lot of spare time. Oh, and they have access to Snopes.
Years ago I had a mate who was a Community Support Officer (Or "Plastic Plod" as they're more commonly known.) And he passed on the following nightmare.
A gang of kids broke into an old woman's house when she was out, the 82 year old came back to find the place ransacked, valuables missing, and her pet dog charred beyond recognition in the oven.
Statistically the elderly are more likely to die in the six months after a burglery than they are normally, can't imagine that she lived long after that.
Of course here in the United Kingdom of Asbo's nobody batted an eyelid.

Seriously? For one cat? You Canadians really need to get a sense of humour... I mean, kids microwave hamsters and guinea pigs every day of the week, don't they? If we leave out cats, surely that's just picking on the rodents.
Incidentally, was it just me who pissed themselves laughing about Bonsai Kittens *before* they worked out it was a hoax?
Yes, I'd believe AC over one cat. Some things just demand absolute zero tolerance.
Otherwise, where do you draw the line? A cat? A baby? A woman? Ten people? Six million?
We've (as a species) been on this roller-coaster before, and it wasn't much fun the first time. We'd be absolutely stupid beyond belief to get on it again.
Of course, there's "reality TV"...

1. We have a sense of humour. In fact, we regularly laugh at our neighbors who know (on average) very little to nothing about us, and try to poke fun. The sheer irony of hearing how we all live in igloos and how small our country is is actually quite great for developing a sense of humour.
2. Where do you live that you claim kids microwave small animals every day of the week? The inner circles of Hell?
3. Jeff Dickey has a point. As if putting another living thing through such an incredible amount of prolonged torture and pain isn't bad enough on its own, after that, where would you draw the line? And how could you justify that line if everything before it is "just a joke"?
A simple search brings up a few real cases:
And there was also the famous case of an army man ironing a hamster, then microwaving it afterwards...
Water scooping planes (known as airtankers) can take in sea water, as I saw a group of three Bombardier 415s do so during the Greek fires last summer. Regarding that urban legend, as you read in the above snopes link, the hole through which it gets the water is only 4x6 inches big.
Regarding the story, maybe they divorced because the husband requested another prostitute instead, and the wife didn't take too kindly to being cast aside for a better, newer model? (tenuous IT related pun intended)
