Emergency! I Need A Doc- There’s Dog Poop On My Shoe

Dog poop on shoes among bizarre cases handed to accident and emergency

Written by   –  From IndiaTalkies.com

London, Nov 7:
People in England go to accident and emergency for a number of “inappropriate” reasons including women not being able to remove false fingernails or a man wanting his sick dog treated, a new research has found.

The study found that one father even rang 999 for an ambulance after being bitten on his -finger by his guinea pig, while one mother took her child to A and E because he had stepped in dog excrement and she wanted staff to clean it off.

A girl visited the emergency department for help after a hair dye disaster, while another wanted someone to cut her toenails because she could not get a chiropody appointment.

Among other bizarre incidents forcing people to visit A and E include distraught woman begging nurses to remove paint stuck in her hair.

“The tales told in the videos are very funny and they are extreme cases, but there are very serious issues behind them,” the Daily express quoted Dr Mike Cheshire, medical director at NHS North West, as saying.

“Every minute that an A and E doctor or nurse spends treating very minor problems reduces the time they can spend attending to those who have suffered heart attacks, strokes and life-threatening injuries,” he added. (ANI)

What Used To Be Cool Ain’t So Cool Anymore

Tech Evolution: 18 Gadgets that Used to be High-Tech

evolving technology videodisc

Depending on your age, you’ve probably seen at least a few generations of technology. It’s amazing how quickly the sizes and shapes of our gadgets can change as the technology improves. The Chicago Tribune compiled a photo essay of gadgetsthat once were futuristic, but now might as well be from the Flintstones. Above: the fabled videodisc, predecessor to the modern DVD.

Phones

evolving technology phones

There are few technologies that have grown as quickly or as dramatically as telephones. Above, a child uses one of the first picture phones in 1972 and an operator demonstrates old and new (at the time) telephones in 1955. The new telephone is a rotary dial, something that would completely baffle most young people today. Also above, the changing cell phone: left, the “brick” phone in 1989. Right, the 1985 briefcase telephone with its own built-in transceiver.

Portable Music

evolving technology music

Everyone loves listening to music while on the go, and today we have itty-bitty MP3 players that we can conceal just about anywhere. Previous generations of portable music were slightly more conspicuous. The 1956 wrist radio above was revolutionary for its time, but you were at the mercy of the local DJ. Above right, the 1986 boom box was awesome for not only listening to your favorite cassettes away from home, but also for building up your biceps. Bottom, the floating radio/cup holder and Sony Walkman: two music gadgets the teenagers of today have probably never heard of.

Video Games

evolving technology video games

Plenty of people today are into online poker, but how many of us remember where it got its start? Here, Atari Blackjack is demonstrated at a 1980 gaming convention. And the video game/fitness mashups we see today aren’t a new concept, either. Above right is a 1983 fitness system designed to get avid video game players to do something, you know, in the real world. The faster the user pedaled, the more control they had over the in-game features.

TV and Video

evolving technology tv and video

We are a nation of entertainment enthusiasts, no doubt about it. Above, factory workers assemble some of the first TVs that found their way into American homes in 1950. Above right: we think nothing today of carrying movie-playing devices in our pockets. But in 1988, the Video Walkman was a huge deal. There were about 100 movies available for the mini movie theater. Bottom: video cameras two decades apart. The left is one of the first tubeless video cameras in 1966; on the right is a “miniature” camcorder from 1986.

Computers

evolving technology computers

Computers are now present in just about every home, school and business in the country, but it hasn’t been that way for very long. Top: in 1979, a lawyer looks up information on his Lexis research computer. Lexis is still in business (as LexisNexis) and still offers a huge searchable database for lawyers and journalists. Bottom left, 1983 computing looks complicated. A woman reads the instruction manual for her $2700 worth of home computing gear. And bottom right: can you spot the computer in this picture? Turns out it’s the big freaking table taking up half of the room. This 1969 Honeywell home computer was supposed to do something for everyone in the whole family. Too bad you had to get rid of your living room furniture to fit it in the house. With the purchase of this beauty was included a two-week course in programming so that you could learn to use its features.

Ghosts Caught Doin’ The Do- By The Way Nice Shoes

Two ghosts have been caught having sex in the middle of a living  room, according to Euclid, Ohio, resident Dianna Carlisle.

The female ghost seems to have grabbed her male partner by the ghoulies and  decided to give him a night he won’t forget. That’s according to Ms Carlisle, at  least, who alleges she caught the ghosts ‘in the act’.

‘It looked like… like ghosts having sex,’ she told the Fox affiliate TV  channel in Cleveland.

‘You can see the lady’s high-heeled shoes.’

Ms Carlisle claims the phantoms have been having a scream of a time for a while but she was unable to document it until her four-year-old grand-daughter took this picture.

The snap supposedly shows the outline of a shoulder and arm, which are above a white ghostly figure.

If true, these spooky shenanigans will be a landmark in the study of  paranormal activity, with experts previously unaware that spirit sex was  possible.

Investigator David Jones told the Huffington Post it was highly unlikely that  ghosts were engaged in intercourse, but did admit he was curious about the  house.

He said: ‘This has never been reported before.

‘It would be interesting to know more about the house, however, I don’t think  that has anything to do with [the sex], but I do wonder how long it’s been going  on.’

No E.D. For This Self- Employed Octogenarian Dude

83-Year-Old Man Charged as Male Prostitute

He’s no Fred Garvin, though

First, there was Fred Garvin, male prostitute. Now, there’s an 83-year-old city council candidate from Centerville, Iowa, who has been charged with prostitution.

Ben Clifford Dawson, 83, of Centerville, was charged with prostitution and assault with the intent to commit sexual abuse after he allegedly offered to let a 33-year-old woman repay part of a $7,000 loan by allowing him to perform sex acts on her. That’s not soliciting – it’s prostitution, according to local authorities.

Dawson also grabbed the victim and began kissing their neck without consent, according to police. Dawson was released from the Appanoose County Jail after posting $2,000 bond.

Police said it was not the first such complaint about Dawson.

“The same sexual actions or requests have been recorded in the past in reports from at least three separate former female tenants of the defendant,” police reported.

Model Sacked After Tampon Prank at Fast Food Window

Disgusting stunt lands her in community service

By Greg Wilson

An Australian bartender and model says her life has been ruined ever since a late-night prank in which she threw a tampon at a worker behind a McDonald’s drive-thru window.

Rebecca Leigh Crimmons, 27, said the wee hours stunt on Sept. 25 was harmless, but she pleaded guilty to assault and lost her job at the Noosa Surf Life Saving Club, where she doubles as a bartender and a promotional model. She was sentenced to community service, but said on Facebook that people have overreacted to the incident.

“When the police came around, I thought ‘you’ve got to be kidding’,” she said, according to the Courier-Mail of Brisbane.

She admitted wiping the wet tampon on the hand of worker Luke Clareburt after pretending to find it in her fries. But Crimmins insisted the tampon had merely been dipped in an alcoholic drink. The restaurant staff “made a mountain out of a molehill,” she said.

But Clareburt said the incident freaked him out.

“I didn’t know what was on the tampon,” he said. “She deserves everything she gets. She’s got no one to blame but herself.”


2 water drop marks mean that the absorbency is between 6 to 9 grams.

For The Love Of Scandal and Controversy

Scandal addicts: Trump, Coulter have racial outbursts,
keeping themselves in headlines

By Dylan Stableford Senior Media Reporter | The Cutline

A pair of scandal-loving celebrities unleashed two separate racially charged, controversy-baiting rants on Tuesday, ensuring their names would be kept in the headlines for at least one more news cycle.

Jon Stewart

First, Donald Trump said in a YouTube video that “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart got away with a “very very racist rant” about Republican 2012 hopeful Herman Cain.

Stewart anchored a “Daily Show” segment on Monday about the sexual harassment allegations against Cain, noting that everything in the former Godfather Pizza chain chief’s past sounds dirty. “You want sausage on your pie?” Stewart said, mimicking an Italian pizza shop staffer.

Ann Coulter

Later in the segment, Stewart mocked a clip in which Cain said his favorite ice cream flavor is black walnut. “It just sounds really dirty now,” Stewart noted. “Hey, stop looking at my black walnuts.”

“Nobody else could pull that off,” Trump said. “Where is Rev. Jackson?
Where’s Rev. Sharpton? Where are all the critics that if somebody else did it, it would be a disaster?” You can watch Trump’s video below:

“It’s not what he said, but the way he said it,” Trump said. “The tone of his
voice, the inflection. Unbelievable. Anybody else, deep, deep trouble.”

Trump, of course, came under fire this past summer for injecting racial
themes into the run-up to the GOP presidential season by raising doubts about President Obama’s citizenship and the authenticity of his birth certificate.

Meanwhile, conservative author and paid provocateur Ann Coulter made
the cable talk show rounds defending Cain against the allegations. On Monday, she appeared on Fox News, telling Sean Hannity that black conservatives are better than black liberals. “Our blacks are so much better than their blacks,” Coulter said.

In an appearance on “The Joy Behar” show on Tuesday, Coulter was
given a chance to clarify the remark. She did not.

"The Third-Term Panic", by Thomas Na...

“I’m saying Google Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney and John Conyers, or Google Allen West, Michael Steele or Herman Cain,” Coulter said. “Ours are more impressive. There is no question about that.”

“When Michael Steele was running for Senate, liberals showed up and rolled Oreos down the aisle at him,” Coulter added. “The only racism you hear is against conservative blacks–and it is vicious.”

Earlier in the day, Coulter even managed to turn a pop culture moment into a racially charged political issue. “Kim Kardashian inspires slogan for 2012 presidential campaign,” she tweeted. “[Once] you go half-black, you CAN go back.”

The teen called police, who soon located a car matching the description.

The Delaware County Daily Times report says the two men were charged with robbery. Two others who were also in the car face lesser charges.

Police say they recovered a gun and the sandwich.
