smartphones stupid people. . . street near you

it’s only a matter of time folks, but what a sad reflection on modern life that such a health & safety measure – installing traffic lights on the pavement – is deemed necessary because so many of us are so addicted to our smartphones and social media that traffic lights at normal height are not in our line of vision

We Nuh Want ZIKV

by duncanr

the world is getting into a bit of a flap right now about a new virus *** thought to be linked to birth defects like microencephaly

the virus is spread primarily by mosquitoes – though there is some evidence for sexual transmission as well

in response to the threat, the Jamaican Health Ministry has released this PSA advising folk to get rid of standing water that mosquitoes might use to breed in; use spray to deter them; and advises pregnant women to be specially on guard

*** the good news, though, folks is that “Experts have confirmed that while Zika poses a significant threat it has not yet gotten as bad as to require a rerelease of a Band Aid charity single” – (http://tinyurl.com/gok47pl)

Penis Viewing Test in UK

by duncanr

wheres penisa recent study claims around 30% (on average) of UK men can’t see their willy because of their fat bellies

in the West Midlands, where I live, this figure rises to 43%

[don’t even think of asking!] 😆

in the south-west and the south-east of England, on the other hand, this percentage falls to around 23% – or to put it another way, males in the south-west and the south-east of England are a bunch of big pricks !

Dementia Diagnose Reward

by duncanr

wanted poster£55there is some concern in the UK that dementia sufferers are not being diagnosed early enough so someone had the bright idea of offering GPs (family doctors) £55 for every person diagnosed with dementia

some folk, though, think this is ethically wrong – http://tinyurl.com/k8tjrqp

Me ?

I’ve made a mental note not to visit my GP about that pesky ingrown toenail lest the greedy bugger turns me in for that £55 !

now where was I ?
