How NOT to Increase Site Visits

by duncanr

green-business-graph200bloggers have one thing in common – we want people to read the stuff we put out there

there are various suggested ways to attract and retain readers to one’s blog

Chinese Babysitting Fail

by duncanr

CCTV footage captures 3yr old boy in China dodging traffic on a busy road whilst riding his scooter

Fortunately, a policeman rescued the toddler before any harm befell him and returned him to his grandfather who had been babysitting the lad – though I suspect calls on the dozy old bugger’s babysitting service may be a lot less frequent after this incident

Slow Down

by duncanr

Police in Switzerland have come up with a novel way to get drivers to slow down – enlist the help of an angel

They are paying a man to dress in a white suit, with a pair of wings at accident black spots and wave at drivers to encourage them to slow down.

Personally I think drivers are more likely to slow down if they paid a half-naked woman to stand by the side of the road and wave at motorists – but then, that’s me 😳

Trotters stop Traffic

by duncanr

This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy went…
“Wee wee wee” all the way home…

And 110 other little piggies brought traffic to s standstill, causing 20 mile tailbacks and 3 hour delays, when the transporter they were travelling in overturned – forcing police to close a busy motorway while the escaped pigs were rounded up.

More details here . . .
