What about that Hilary Mantel (Author) having a go at Princess Kate, saying she was bland, machine made and painfully thin, Has she looked at herself in a mirror lately she looks like something out of the Hobbit.. :D

My guess is that they're poor, and it's nearly impossible for the mother to track 11 children. I might also question whether the girl was really 9--in those parts of the world, birth records are often not even kept. Even if she's not, it doesn't make the story any less tragic.


From: Perezhilton.com (don't judge me!)

Last week, we told you the story of Dafne, a 9-year-old girl in Mexico who was impregnated and miraculously gave birth to a healthy baby!

Well, the good news is that the girl's age was misreported by her mother. According to doctors she is at least 12 or 13, possibly older!

We're not sure why her mother lied, but it may have had something to do with keeping her in school longer.

And while that isn't MUCH better, we're sorry because this next part is MUCH worse!

According to DNA testing, the teenage "boyfriend" Dafne claimed impregnated her is NOT the father.

The father of the child is Dafne's 44-year-old stepfather!

Yuck!

And now it seems that the entire family - baby and all - has fled to avoid further investigation! This just isn't right!

We'll keep up with the story, but honestly we're not sure how many more "developments" we can take!

Wow! I like that, though I do agree with the commenter who said it reminded them of a man in drag!

She's Taiwan's best-known professional mourner - a time-honoured tradition in her country that may be dying out.

Love it! Although I think a much more lucrative idea here in the West would be a professional "Grave Dancer"--someone you hire to send to, say, Donald Trump's funeral to do a jaunty two-step on his casket. :banana-angel:

just read an article locally 3 men have been Jailed for only 16 weeks for Animal cruelty, The worst that the RSPCA have come across using dogs to kill Wild Animals which they filmed on their Mobiles. I personally would lock them up and throw away the keys or do the same to them as they did to those poor defensless animals, but 16 weeks is absolutely disgusting,They'll be out in 8 weeks..... :evil: :evil: :evil:

Family shocked dog was shot and killed by hunter

:cry:

We do have too many coyotes here and I think in many cases, it's humane to reduce their population. They are attacking pets, children and even adults here. But I guess the chances of something like this happening are obvious.
