SENSITIVITY

The classroom was full of pregnant women with their husbands. The instructor said, “Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface, like grass or a path.”

“Gentlemen, remember — you’re in this together. It wouldn’t hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both.”

The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information.

After a few moments a man, name unknown, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand. “Yes,” said the Instructor.

“I was just wondering if it would be all right, if she carries a golf bag?”

Brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it? This level of sensitivity can’t be taught.

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

The mysterious mushroom that triggers spontaneous orgasms in women: “Oysters and chocolate maybe considered aphrodisiacs, but their stimulating powers pale into insignificance when compared to a mysterious mushroom found in Hawaii. An as yet unnamed species of bright orange mushroom that grows on volcanic slopes has long been rumoured to possess potent properties. Researchers have discovered the ‘fetid odour’ of the fungus can trigger spontaneous climaxes in females. The mushrooms were discovered growing on lava deposits dating back 600 and 10,000 years. It is thought they belong to the genus Dictyophora, a family of mushrooms that bear distinctive net-like heads. In a small experiment involving 16 women and 20 men, volunteers were asked to sniff the mushroom, which is said to have a ‘fetid odour’. Its smell triggered spontaneous orgasms in six of the women, while the other 10, who received smaller doses, experienced an increase in heart rate, Snopes.com reported. The study explained: ‘There are significant sexual arousal characteristics present in the fetid odour of this unique mushroom.”

Aggressive carrot-lover: “A pensioner attacked a fellow supermarket shopper following a row over ‘access’ to the carrots, a court has heard. Raymond Newton, 71, flew into a rage as Pamela Mann tried to get to the vegetables in Morrisons in Sunderland. Magistrates in the city heard the pensioner had ‘blocked’ the carrots and lashed out when Ms Mann tried to pick some up. She said: ‘I was heading to the carrots and, I know it sounds trivial, but the gentleman went in front of me and blocked the area. ‘I said “excuse me could I just get in to get some carrots please” and the man said “no you can’t, I’m getting carrots”. Ms Mann said she reached across without touching the pensioner and picked up some carrots. But, she added, Newton then pushed her in the chest and then hit her around both sides of her head, which she likened to ‘boxing her ears’. Magistrates accepted Ms Mann’s version of events, saying she was a credible witness who was consistent with her evidence, and found Newton guilty of common assault and ordered him to pay Ms Mann £150 in compensation.”

Has the Biblical city of Sodom been found?: “After decades of excavations, researchers believe they have finally found the ruins of the Biblical city of Sodom. Experts investigating the region of Tall el-Hammam in Jordan believe the remains of a ‘monstrous’ Bronze Age city match the Biblical description of the city destroyed by God. Not only would the site have been the largest city in the region, as described in the Bible, it is situated to the east of the River Jordan, dates back to between 3500 and 1540 BC and is thought to have been suddenly abandoned. The majority of references made about Sodom and Gomorah appear in the Book of Genesis. In particular, Sodom is one of the largest cities east of the Jordan. It is described as being situated on a common trade route, and due to its size, it was said to have been heavily fortified with towers and tall, thick walls. By comparison, the site, at Tall el-Hamaam, dates back to between 3500 and 1540 BC. It is said to be the largest city that would have existed in the region – between five and 10 times larger than other cities in the area”

US Army to test rifle that hits targets BEHIND cover: “The US Army is planning to test a smart rifle that can hit soldiers who are shielded by cover. The tests, planned for early next year, will monitor the performance of a weapon known as the XM25 Counter Defilade Engagement System. Created by Orbital ATK, the shoulder-fired gun has a built-in ‘target acquisition and fire control system’, allowing soldiers with basic shooting skills to fire the system. It uses bullets that are programmed to explode when they have travelled a set distance, allowing enemies to be targeted no matter where they are hiding. The rifle also has a range of 2,300 feet making it possible to hit targets which are well out of the reach of conventional rifles. Its gunsight uses a laser rangefinder and smart software to determine the exact distance to the target. The soldier can then add or subtract up to 3 metres from that distance to enable the bullets to clear the barrier and explode above or beside the target.”

Northrop Grumman boasts new military buggy that has laser weapons ‘we would once only see in Star Trek’: “It could be the ultimate offroader – and take soldiers into battle like never before. Northrop Grumman has revealed the ultimate buggy – a six seater that boasts its own laser weapon. Called the Hellhound, it was revealed at the the Association of the US Army’s annual conference in Washington, DC. It is designed to fulfill the US Army’s potential light reconnaissance vehicle programme and will compete against other designs for the lucrative contract. It is able to generate 100 kVA of exportable power, which is particularly high for a vehicle of its size, with a 120 kW Jenoptik integrated starter generator, with officials boasting it could ‘power the entire hall’ it was launched in. Although the version shown off has a more traditional weapon, the firm says it is ‘laser ready’ and plans to integrate a 10-kilowatt solid-state fiber laser into the tactical dune buggy.”
