THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

A speedy religious: “This is the unbelievable moment a nun was filmed flooring it on a road in Slovakia and reaching speeds of more than 100mph. The speeding sister was caught behind the wheel of the accelerating Skoda Fabia by a group of surprised youngster in the north of the country. The group decided to overtake the car in order to record the driver and to do so were required to reach a speed of 102mph, more than 20mph over the national limit. The filmmaker momentarily records the satnav in order to clock the speed before the driver catches up with the nun and cruises alongside her. The elderly sister can be seen dressed in a recognisable tunic covered by a scapular and cowl. It transpires that the nun and her passengers were from Spisska Kapitula, the location of a famous seminary and convent. A spokesman for the Conference of Bishops of Slovakia, Martin Kramara, said: ‘I spoke to the sisters personally. They feel sorry for the speeding and they apologise for it.'”

Incredible baby stroller folds down small enough to fit into a plane overhead locker… in TWO SECONDS: “A lightweight buggy has set the Guinness World Record for being the world’s ‘smallest commercially available folded pram’. Designed for urban parents, the GB Pockit Stroller shrinks down to the size of a large handbag in less than two seconds – with its minuscule folded-up measurements being just 35cm x 30cm x 18cm. Dad blogger The Baby Guy NYC filmed the stroller being folded down at the K&J Baby and Toddler trade fair in Germany. After posting the video to Facebook, it has since received over 6.6 million views and over 35,000 likes. The stroller can be easily folded in two ways – the ultra-compact version or a method more suitable for every day use – both of which promise to be only two steps long. The ultra-light pram weighs a dainty 4.3kg, features a small flap canopy and has a five-point harness.”

Coffee shop BANS customers from using money stored in their bras: “A cafe in the Western Australian town of Carnarvon has brewed up a fresh pot of controversy by banning people from paying with money carried in their bras or underwear. Fascine Coffee Lounge, located in a small town of less than 5000 people on Western Australia’s central coast, put up signs behind its cash registers announcing its policy on undergarment currency. Cafe manager Corey Weeks said he put the sign up after a customer ‘pulled out’ her bra, reached into it and handed him some money ‘about two months ago’. ‘We’re dealing with food here all the time, so it’s a definite safety thing. A few of the staff had complained about it, too, which made me think we needed the sign.'”

Is banana SKIN the new ‘superfood’?: “They are traditionally tossed aside, consigned to the rubbish and long forgotten. But, rather than deserve their reputation as a slippery hazard, the butt of cartoon jokes, banana skins are, in fact, good for us. Whether you’re partial to a green, yellow or browning fruit, the peel is packed with nutrients that can prove beneficial to the body. In many parts of the world, notably India and the Caribbean, the peel is used to add flavour and substance to dishes. And, there is now a growing consensus that the nutrients, compounds and minerals hidden away within the skin could help aid weight loss, and boost your mood. ‘The nutrition profile of magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and B6 is not something to be sniffed at.'”

The owl in the fireplace: “A family was left stunned when the fireplace in their new home was invaded by – an owl. Homeowner Nicola Walker, 37, stumbled upon the feathered creature who had managed to drop in through her chimney. Nicola was confronted with the bird sat in the fireplace – looking at her from behind the glass. ‘It was just sitting there like an exhibit in a museum or something you would see in a taxidermist. ‘We rang the wildlife sanctuary and they told us to open the fire and don’t try and pull it out in case it was injured. ‘It just went up into the bottom of the chimney, so we just left it until it came out itself.”
