How often did you see drunken gorillas?
When wildlife photographer Andy Rouse was told he would find a family of endangered gorillas high on the mountain, he did not expect to find them this high. Sitting back in the foliage as if it was a cocktail bar, the mountain gorillas had been gorging on alcoholic sap from fresh bamboo shoots and were looking distinctly the worse for wear.
When the snapper returned the following day, all was quiet, with the apes apparently sleeping off their hangovers. We can only sympathize with the shock no doubt experienced by some of the beasts when they awoke and discovered who they had spent the night with.
A Prayer Machine
How lazy are you to pay a machine for reciting your prayer? Does it still count?
For a small monthly fee, a new Internet service called Information Age Prayer will use speech synthesis to verbalize three prayers a day for you. While the company offers no guarantee that God will answer, they do promise the computer-generated prayers will be read at the proper volume and pace, and that your name will be printed on a screen each time one is articulated.
Prices vary from $1.95 a month for prayers for your children, to $3.95 a month for prayers for world peace. As of now, you can't write your own prayers, but the company claims they will add this feature once they can assure "no malicious prayers will get through."
60ft Phallus (Penis) On the Roof
Rory McInnes, 18, climbed on to the flat roof of his parents' home and daubed the symbol using a tin of white paint, after watching a programme about Google Earth. But parents Andy and Clare did not discover their son's rude artwork until a helicopter spotted it on top of their home near Hungerford, Berks.
When Mr McInnes phoned his son, who is currently in Brazil on a gap year, the teenager said: "Oh, you've found it then!"
The boy's father appeared to take the prank in good humor.
Shoplifter Learn From ‘Cops’
Penni Dale Waters, A 48-year-old Tampa Bay woman says she learned an important shoplifting lesson from the TV show Cops. If you lined your handbag with tinfoil you can evade the detectors at the store entrance. Unlike a lot of Food Channel recipes and products you purchase on infomercials, this handy tip really works. Waters made it out the door of her local Lowes with a power drill. She might have gotten away if she hadn't made a more basic mistake. She didn't realize a store detective was watching.
As I have been telling everybody else who are kindly enough to listen, watching television is an educating process. By the way, I am currently hooked up with the new TV show called Better Off Ted.
