THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Boy Scout Water Gun Ban: “The Boy Scouts of America have been dealing with political correctness for years, though in the past it has been with weighty subjects such as homosexual leaders and scouts. This time, it’s not nearly so serious, but it’s absurd all the same. Boy Scout blogger Bryan Wendell writes, “As summer — and pool weather! — lingers on the horizon, it’s a good time to remind you that BSA policies prohibit pointing simulated firearms at people. Yes, that includes water guns.” And he’s actually serious. According to the 2015 Boy Scouts of America National Shooting Sports Manual, “Water guns and rubber band guns must only be used to shoot at targets, and eye protection must be worn.” Fine, safety first and all. Wouldn’t want a Scout hit in the eye with a rubber band. So now we’re going to raise a generation of Scouts to be scared of water guns. What red-blooded American boy hasn’t enjoyed the heck out of a water gun fight? Well, now the Boy Scout variety, that’s who.

Don’t hurt yourself in Scotland: “An injured toddler waited a staggering 50 hours to receive just three stitches, her father has claimed. Cassara Rodgers was first taken to A&E last Friday after falling and splitting her lip on a table at her grandmother’s house. But the four-year-old didn’t receive treatment until a full two days later, on Sunday. The toddler, from Glasgow, needed an anaesthetic before her stitches and therefore was unable to eat while she was waiting. At one point she fasted for a full 24 hours, leaving her so hungry she began to vomit bile. A spokesman for NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said there was no problem with understaffing at Yorkhill, and the suggestion was ‘totally wrong’. ‘The Royal Hospital for Sick Children at Yorkhill is not understaffed and its emergency theatre capacity is appropriate. [Don’t you love their idea of “appropriate”?]

Leopard shark rolls over like a dog so it can have its BELLY rubbed: “It is a comforting move more associated with pet dogs than fish. But this leopard shark proved that it’s not just pups that enjoy a belly rub from time to time. Captured on camera at an aquarium believed to be in France, a technician found the leopard shark’s sweet spot while carrying out some maintenance tasks in the tank. He cleans the glass as a number of fish – seemingly oblivious to his presence – swim around. Taking note of him however is a leopard shark, which swims around in a circle and heads directly towards the man’s chest. Anticipating the marine mammal heading his way, the man opens his arms and greets it with a hug. The shark, who appears to be smiling, then moves under the man’s arm to get into a better position to be stroked. Later in the clip the shark rolls onto its back, exactly like a dog would, and relaxes as the man rubs its belly. The video concludes with the satisfied shark swimming away and the man returning to his job.”

Feds go after biker gang members… by claiming the rights to their logos: “Prosecutors are attempting to break up America’s most violent motorcycle gangs by claiming rights to their logos. If the government is successful, it will become illegal for a member of the 600-strong notorious Mongols Nation gang to wear its trademarked patch – a black-and-white image of 12th century conqueror Genghis Khan riding a motorbike in a pair of sunglasses. Police sources say that removing gang logos diminishes the gang’s power and identity. A source told Fox News: ‘It not just stripping them of their identity, or robbing them of a recruiting tool, it’s taking the star off their helmet. The logo itself furthers a criminal enterprise.’ If successful, one expert says that the government will use the legal precedent to disrupt other violent motorcycle groups, including those involved in Sunday’s horrific shoot-out in Waco.”

Ocean-going pizzeria: “If you fancy a slice of paradise served up with your pizza, this Fiji restaurant could be the ideal eatery. Floating in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Fiji, the luxurious two-storey island offers cocktails, food and endless seas views. And as your food is being prepared, Cloud 9 offers the perfect pastime – the chance to snorkel in the clear turquoise water while you wait. The floating wonder sits 40-45 minutes from the coast of Fiji, and can be reached by an exciting boat ride from Port Denarau. For those in a hurry for their slice of heaven, it can also be reached by a 10 minute speed boat ride from Musket Cove Resort, Lomani Resort and Plantation Resort. Once aboard, guests can chose from the menu, or succumb to the inevitable and opt for one of the Italian Wood Fire Pizzas. There are even options for non-vegetarian, vegetarian and gluten-free guests so everyone can enjoy the delights of Cloud 9. Once aboard, and fed, guests can sunbathe on the reclining day beds which overlook the crystal clear waters of Vanua Malolo on Ro Ro Reef. Cloud 9 is not just a food venue but also hosts dj events, featuring both international and local DJs each weekend. The unique restaurant can hold 100 guests, and is free for all ages to go and visit with no landing fee.”
