Talk About It Tuesday

Welcome to the first installment of Talk About It Tuesday.  This is a new gig coming to you live from Bucks County, PA every Tuesday.  How it works:  In my spare time that really isn’t spare ( but hey, I’m a slacker) I will be finding the most ridiculous stories on the internet and posting them here. Yes.  HERE!

There won’t be many animal videos, because, as I realized tonight while my boyfriend watches kitten videos on YouTube… the exploitation stirs something unnerving inside.

So this week I found out that spiders have detachable penises!  Apparently, amidst the sexual encounter, the male spider begins to panic at the thought of being murdered by his mate and leaves his penis to work while he escapes.  I am sure there are a lot of men out there that wish they came stocked with this feature.

In London news, Menna Pritchard caught a lot of flack.  Apparently, rock climbing with your baby strapped to your back is frowned upon.  Well, yeah!  I think what unnerved people (ok, me) is that the mother had a helmet on, but the baby was sans helmet. Outrageous?  Read the article and share your thoughts.

Why do a lot of people think the police and FBI are a joke?  Maybe because once in a while they screw up in gigantic fashion.  A Massachusetts woman was held at gunpoint for a half hour while her baby screamed in the other room after the Feebs cut through the wrong door.  This after a two-year drug investigation. Two years!  If that isn’t alarming, I don’t know what is.

In Taiwan, a gamer died in a cafe and sat there (dead) for at least nine hours before anyone noticed!  According to the article, this is not the first time a person has died due to excessive gaming.  If you sit on your ass all day and then get up to move around, you could induce a heart attack.  I am using this reason at work for all my wandering the hallways.

Since reading these I will not be sitting on my ass playing Wii anymore.  And the next time I want to go rock climbing with my cat, I surely will have his helmet complete with ear holes ready to go. Hope you enjoyed the first installment of Talk About It Tuesday.
