The Royal Wedding was today. So, do you want to know how to win a prince’s heart, or, at least how Kate Middleton did?
1) Take your clothes off.
2) Wear black lace panties under a see through skirt.
3) Wear the see through skirt as a dress.
That’s it! Yes, she planned it all. Yes, she had a boyfriend at the time, which is pretty shady. Nonetheless, I did like her wedding dress!

This Easter is the 96th anniversary of the atrocious Armenian Genocide. It’s really sad how the American government puts politics over humanity. Aren’t we supposed to be better than that?
I’m also glad that the Kardashian sisters are brining attention to this by tweeting to their 8 million+ followers. I was reading Kim’s Facebook page a while back and came across a post from this girl from Turkey, saying that the Armenian genocide is a lie because if it were to be true, it would be in their history books. The ignorance got me so angry I had to stop reading.
As for all the Armenians who voted for Obama because he would recognize the Armenian genocide, -_-.
On September 18, 2007, 26 year-old Kerrie Wooltorton from eastern England swallowed antifreeze and called the ambulance soon thereafter. Most people would assume that the reason why she called was because she wanted help, but Kerrie had actually written a letter 3 days prior, giving the doctors instructions not to save her.
Apparently Wooltorton was depressed because she couldn’t conceive a child, and she didn’t want to die alone. Wooltorton’s family said that the doctors should have saved her regardless, but her living will prevented them to do so. The letter was addressed to “To whom this may concern” and contained the following:
“If I come into hospital regarding an overdose or any attempt of my life, I would like for NO life saving treatment to be given… I am aware that you may think that because I called the ambulance I therefore want treatment, THIS IS NOT THE CASE! I do however want to be comfortable as nobody wants to die alone and scared and without going into details there are loads of reasons I do not want to die at home which I realize you will not understand and I apologise for this… Please be assured that I am 100% aware of the consequences of this and the probable outcome of drinking antifreeze, eg death in 95-99% of cases and if I survive then kidney failure, I understand and accept them and will take 100% responsibility for this…”
The doctors considered her to be “mentally competent to decide on treatment — or refuse it,” which is why they cannot be legally liable for anything.
I personally think she should have been saved. According to chairman Dominica Roberts from The ProLife Alliance, “A lot of people who attempt to commit suicide are thankful they have been revived the next day.” I just don’t see how people can let someone die like that.
How do you feel? Do you think the doctors should have saved her?
Okay, so maybe not. But Jonathon Porritt, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, “is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.” So how much is this drastic change? The country needs to reduce its current population of 61 million (by 2031 it’s said to reach 71 million), down to the 30 million of the late Victorian times.
Porritt says population control can help cut green house emissions, and the population in the UK plays a greater factor in the environment than other developing countries. On the other hand, George Monbiot, a prominent writer on green issues, has “criticized population campaigners, arguing that ‘relentless’ economic growth is a greater threat.”
Many experts believe that, “since Europeans and Americans have such a lopsided impact on the environment, the world would benefit more from reducing their populations than by making cuts in developing countries.”
Now, we all know population control is a very sensitive political topic because it conflicts with religion, culture and immigration groups, etc., so you can imagine how much more complicated this proposal is going to get. If anything, I personally think India should be next up in terms of population control and follow China’s footsteps because those two countries alone have the greatest population than any other country.
What do you guys think about population control? Should the UK be next or should another country do it first? Also, can you think of any better proposals? And no, nuking a country doesn’t count (haha).
I got a forwarded email from a friend two days ago and it was titled “Most Beautiful Man In The World.” His name is Sakis Rouva and he’s a Greek singer. I’m usually skeptical about those stuff but after looking at the pictures, I saw where he got those votes from. But then it got me to think: Too good to be true? I decided to YouTube his songs, and that’s where his image had a downward spiral for me. I mean, he looks great in the pictures, but then when you watch him doing all these feminine moves in his dance videos, it takes away the fierce masculinity you see in his pictures. Oh and he definitely looks different in the video compared to the pictures. But then again, that’s just me. What do you think? I’ve posted both the pictures I had from my email and two random YouTube videos of him…
And now time for the videos that killed his image for me…
