I don’t know if that European heat wave is affecting parts of Scandinavia, but it sounds like the 4th in line to the Norwegian throne is going a little bit….crazy.

Media Reports:

Princess Martha Louise of Norway has claimed that she is a clairvoyant, saying that she realised as a child that she could read people’s inner feelings, and that she owes her ability to make contact with angels to her experiences with horses.

“It was while I was taking care of the horses that I got in contact with the angels,” she says.
“I have lately understood the value of this important gift and I wish to share it with other people, maybe with you.”

The 35-year-old Princess – the daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja, is a trained physical therapist – and made the claims on a web site for her alternative education centre.

Web site here.

The Norwegian Royal Palace confirmed that the Web site accurately reflected the Princess’s views, but declined further comment.

Sounds like somebody has been spending way too much time in the Royal Palace.

  6th sense or publicity stunt?

A Canadian health club is attracting huge interest after opening up a workout station dedicated to the world-wide exercise-gaming phenomenon, the Nintendo Wii.

Trendy Studeo 55 in Vancouver has incorporated the system in its workout circuit and users can punch, run and jump with the system’s movement-sensitive controller

“It’s pleasing to see people play video games who would have never played video games before.” Farjad Iravani, marketing manager for Nintendo Canada, told media.

He estimates that one session of Wii boxing, tennis or bowling equates to going for a brisk walk and can burn between 75 to 125 calories.

Since the Wii was released late last year, various studies have highlighted its ability to improve fitness and even lead to weight loss by getting armchair athletes moving.

A study conducted by researchers at the Liverpool John Moores University in England found that regular use of the console could burn up to 1,830 calories a per week — the equivalent to almost four Big Macs.

Nintendo is also currently developing Wii Fit, a 2008 video game with an array of activities, from yoga to aerobics.

Could Nintendo have come up with a much needed solution to the obesity epidemic sweeping the western world?

Only time will tell.

Wiiiiii……!

Haahahahahahahahahha!
