What way do you see the dancer below turning, clockwise or anti-clockwise?

Panties for Democracy.

In 2007, Democracy, Free Burma, Myanmar, Odd News, Panty Power, Uncategorized on October 26, 2007 at 4:58 pm

 Panty Power!

The goal: Democracy for Burma.

The plan: Flood the country’s foreign embassies with women’s underwear.

“The Burma military regime is not only brutal but very superstitious. They believe that contact with a woman’s panties or sarong can rob them of their power,” the Lanna Action for Burma group said on its website.

The group based in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai is urging people all over the world to “post, deliver or fling” their undergarments to Myanmar’s international embassies.

So far, Myanmar embassies in Thailand, Australia and the United States had been targeted by the Panty Power campaign, which began last week.

Naked sleepwalking on the rise.

In 2007, Odd News, UK, Weird News on October 26, 2007 at 4:18 pm

According to British hotel company Travelodge, incidents of sleepwalking in hotels rose seven-fold in the past year, and 95 percent of the culprits are scantily clad men.

Which means men staying in hotels in Britain have serious psychological disorders, or there is something more sinister happening.

To manage the steep increase in naked sleepwalking incidents, Travelodge has decided to implement a new training program to deal with the phenomenon.

One tip in the company’s newly released “sleepwalkers guide” tells staff to keep towels handy at the front desk in case a customer’s dignity needs preserving.

The company said naked wanderers often ask receptionists such questions as “Where’s the bathroom?,” “Do you have a newspaper?” or “Can I check out, I’m late for work?”

Yes indeed.
