Low cost, no frills, airlines in Europe have been all the rage for some years now. But when passengers boarding low-cost Spanish airline Vueling Airlines Sunday realised that nearly half the seats on their plane were out of use, some began worrying.

 No frills air conditioning

The captain told passangers on the intercom: “We will not be able to use that part of the plane because we have a safety problem with the door at the front. Don’t worry, it’s only a safety problem,”

Some passangers where very nervous including one passenger who asked a pesimistic question about whether the plane could tip over in mid-air by flying with a heavier load on one side.

Many passangers who were flying Lisbon to Madrid took photos of the taped-off seats but staff stopped them saying it was against company rules.

The safety problem was with the slide on one of the plane’s eight emergency exit doors, a spokeswoman for Vueling said.

The firm followed aviation guidelines which allow the door to be used but oblige a reduction in passenger numbers because it cannot fulfill its emergency function, she said.

      A serious case of toilet humour?

Only in America…..A woman in the US state of Iowa, who is the butt of all jokes, has been charged with stealing toilet paper from a courthouse. And the most halarious part of it all, she is facing “potentially three years of incarceration for three rolls of toilet paper”, that even had the police Chief in fits of laugheter.

Yes, you heard it right, thats one year per roll of toilet paper. The state legislators apparenly really value toilet paper, they used to use poison ivy over in Iowa up unitl recently.

Suzanne Marie Butts insists it was the first time she had stolen the paper, but she declined to answer further questions on advice from her attorney.

The fifth-degree theft charge normally carries a sentence of less than a year in jail. But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state’s habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

Butts, 38, was caught last week after an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply tissue from a storage closet in Marshall County.

Paris Interview: I want to build a “Paris Hilton playhouse”

No, not a Hugh Hefner style playhouse, but we can keep dreaming…
       Any excuse to post a blog with this picture in it really….

Paris Hilton has gushed over the phone Sunday to dinosaur aged American veteran jounalist Barbara Walters about wanting to “make a difference”.

“I used to act dumb. It was an act. That act is no longer cute. It is not who I am nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me,” Hilton said.

When she is back to freedom (the freedom to be hounded by paparazzi), Paris apparently said she would like to help in the field of breast cancer, which her grandmother battled, or Multiple Sclerosis, which her father’s mother suffered from. She also said she’d like to get toy companies to build a “Paris Hilton playhouse” for sick children.

“I’m not that superficial girl. I haven’t looked in the mirror since I got here.”

Paris called Sunday from the Correctional Treatment Center at Los Angeles County’s “Twin Towers” jail facility where she is serving a 45-day sentence for violating her probation stemming from a drunk driving charge last year, as if you didnt know that alreaddy right?

Walters said she was talking to Hilton’s mother, Kathy Hilton, at 3 p.m. LA time Sunday when Paris called her mom on another line. Paris Hilton said she wanted to talk to Walters herself, so she did.

    “She sounded, first of all, tired but totally aware of what she was saying,” Walter said on the ABC  TV daytime chat show, “The View.”

    “I’m hanging in there but I feel as if I’m a different person,” Hilton told Walters. “I’ve dropped my appeal. I do not want to cause any more problems.”

“I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual.

While inside Hilton said that she had been reading newspapers, including the LA Times and Wall Street Journal as well as books, including “The Secret,” “The Power of Now” and even the Bible.

So, do I belive that all this turning of a new leaf stuff for Paris is for real?…Not really…

And Hollywood image-makers agree with me.

Based on the way the story has been playing out, this is a good move for her,” said Michael Levine, who has served as publicist for dozens of celebrities, including law brushing veteran Michael Jackson, love her or hater her Barbara Streisand and tough guy Bill O’Reilly. “Experience has taught me that celebrities respect wisdom but obey pain. What I mean by that is that when they feel the heat they see the light.”

“When you’re in a hole, it’s generally a good idea to stop digging … from doing the same idiotic stuff that got you in trouble in the first place…I think that the public this time is disgusted with her and probably asking themselves why they even bother,” he said.

“So she’s on the brink of becoming a caricature or a person. The next step is hopefully to reveal by her words and actions that she has taken responsibility for being an adult.”

So is Paris Hilton going to be a changed woman after her prison stay? Or is this all just apart of her ‘image managment’?, only time will tell.

Walters talks about the interview.

              “That’s hot”

 How will she ever shake this video?

Japan declares ‘War on Animals’

Post World War 2 Japan has had a strict self- defence only policy, but the Land of the Rising Sun is about to declare war on our friends in the animal kingdom

Having debated since March on how to deal with wild animals such as boars, bears and monkeys who attack crops and enter populated areas, a group of Japanese ruling party politicians has agreed to call on the military for help.

   Japanese Macaque monkeys, probably the coolest monkeys in the world, besides us ofcourse.

Under the plan, subject to approval from party executives, local leaders will be able to request help from the country’s Self Defence Forces to build fences and set traps. Some in the party are also calling for troops to use guns.

But the defence ministry is cautious on the use of weapons as Japan’s military activities are strictly curtailed by its pacifist constitution.

Oh deer….

  Hanging out with Japanese deer

Meanwhile, the ruling parties plans’ seem to be falling on deaf ears. Nearly half of Japanese voters want the ruling coalition to lose its upper house majority in July elections, a Kyodo news agency poll showed on Sunday.

The poll of 1,858 voters found 46.9 percent hoped Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Centrist Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and its junior coalition partner New Komeito would lose, compared with 43.6 percent who wanted the ruling bloc to maintain its majority.

Shinzo Abe, lucky wild animals can’t vote.
