Diary for Saturday, 19th April 2008


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 11 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 11 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 11 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Umbrella Watch (especially for Steve): Whilst the umbrella is still working admirably, its string handle has disintergrated. Frankly, I never really liked it anyway. «

Now there is an Arab Lorena Bobbit.
Some years ago Lorena Bobbit and her husband, John Wayne Bobbit, were having an argument, She later said it was because he always wanted rough sex.
She waited until he was asleep and cut off his penis.
The penis was later reattached and John Wayne Bobbit went on to father at least one child and become a porno star. (He would actually get swell paid for showing people the “booboo.”)
Lorena went to prison for awhile.
So far as I know she never married again.
Perhos because men had long memories.
Now a similar incident has taken place in Pakistan.
A 31 year old married woman has chopped off the penis of her 24 year old lover because he married his cousin after promising to marry her if she got a divorce.
Souds like she invited him to her home for a last romp in the hay and gave him sleeping pills and when he dropped off, she chopped off.
Unlike Bobbit, Pakistani doctors say they can’t put Humpty Dumpty together again.
The woman has been jailed.
And for Steve, It was raimning when the poor man went to his former girlfriend’s apaprtment for t he tryst, so he took his umbrella with him.’So far as is known,, the penis did not drop into the umbrella.
