Little Blur Seal
A confused arctic hooded seal was rescued for the second time after swimming the wrong way out of England.


The seal, nicknamed Sahara, has been found off the Spanish coast after swimming south. Last year, the same seal was picked up off the coast of Morocco while just a pup and taken to England for veterinary care. Sahara should have headed to Iceland or Greenland, the traditional mating grounds of the animals, but for some reason he has swum south for two years in a row.

“We think he left a breeding area in Iceland and got completely lost and followed the shelf down to Morocco,” said Tamara Cooper of the National Seal Sanctuary in Cornwall. After six months in the Cornish sanctuary earlier this year, Sahara was tagged and released in the sea near the Orkney Isles in the beginning of October.

The seal at first followed a correct course towards Iceland, but after a short time he turned tail and headed south towards Spain. He was rescued Sunday in the bay of Ondarroa, near the Basque city of Bilbao. He has been placed in a rescue facility in northern Spain.

“We’re disappointed that he headed south and not back up north, but we’re relieved that he’s safe and well,” said Cooper. “We hope he gets one more chance to remain free, instead of being protected here,” she added.

Nobody knows exactly why the seal has been traveling south. Sahara is not the only arctic hooded seal to exhibit this pattern. Several other seals have exhibited similar behavior in the past 10 years. Scientists have been unable to explain the behavior, but have theorized that the animals are following fish or ocean currents.

Bike sex man placed on probation
A bike
Cleaners caught Mr Stewart simulating sex with a bike
A man caught trying to have sex with his bicycle has been sentenced to three years on probation.

Robert Stewart, 51, admitted a sexually aggravated breach of the peace by conducting himself in a disorderly manner and simulating sex.

Sheriff Colin Miller also placed Stewart on the Sex Offenders Register for three years.

Mr Stewart was caught in the act with his bicycle by cleaners in his bedroom at the Aberley House Hostel in Ayr.

Gail Davidson, prosecuting, told Ayr Sheriff Court: "They knocked on the door several times and there was no reply.

"They used a master key to unlock the door and they then observed the accused wearing only a white t-shirt, naked from the waist down.

"The accused was holding the bike and moving his hips back and forth as if to simulate sex."

Both cleaners, who were "extremely shocked", told the hostel manager who called police.

Sheriff Colin Miller told Stewart: "In almost four decades in the law I thought I had come across every perversion known to mankind, but this is a new one on me. I have never heard of a 'cycle-sexualist'."

Stewart had denied the offence, claiming it was caused by a misunderstanding after he had too much to drink.

The bachelor had been living in the hostel since October 2006 after moving from his council house in Girvan.

He now lives in Ayr.


i mean i know you're drunk.... but no matter how drunk, u can't mistake a bicycle for a woman can you??? ''extremely shocked'' is really an understatement.. when u see someone humping a bicycle... u'll be emotionally scarred for life... its like.. wtf?!?!

One Post
haha, i could not match my ambition of coming up with 5 posts today. only 1. at least i dint end up with zero! =)

still not feeling particularly well... this flu and fever thing is really pissing me off big time. and add to the fact that the prices of everything is going up, i'm not surprised if the dragon doesn't nip it's tail off. dint get that? no worries, i dint get it either...

it started with oil... petrol, diesel.... prices started spiraling out of control. next, the prices of milk also went up.. or rather i shud say the prices of dairy products... and if that's not enough... the price of flour also followed suit... hell yeahh.. me flour aint gonna lose out to you milk..

so imagine the next time u order a roti prata with cheese... the oil to cook the prata, the flour for the prata, and the cheese which is a dairy product... OMG!

hai... i'm jus gonna stick to rice and curry...

oh shit... curry has milk in it.... geeee...

i've been neglecting this poor blog of mine. well, there's facebook to keep me busy with.. busy 'fighting' with people, buying 'drinks' for ppl, 'racing' with people, 'feeding' my pet... and the list goes on..

its amazing this facebook thing. and i'm sure many people out there are cursing themselves saying 'why dint i think of that earlier?' well, cos there was friendster and if there aint nothing wrong with that.. why fix it? that applies to most of us. we see no point in improving something if there's nothing wrong with it. well, its true too... until something like facebook comes along.

the same thought can be given as to why u want to change a team if the team is winning? there's so many possibilities as to what might happen as supposed to what really happened. just becos someone has a different thinking as to how something should work.. does not mean that we have to berate them with socks and rotten eggs.

however, it just occured to me that there's not really an avenue for me to voice out my thoughts. and i've got many of them. it has reached a point of saturation that i can no longer keep everything in this brain of mine.

but somehow i've no mood to type anymore for now. byee

i've been haunted by a niggling headache that doesn't seem to want to go away. it is affecting every single small detail of my life. be it deciding what to eat, deciding what to wear, and even deciding if i should reply that person in the sms. it is really affecting me.

i'm starting to gain pleasure of a different sort with this headache around. Paracetamol is the drug of choice. Each time i've had enough of the pain, i'll pop 2 of those small pills and wait for the effect to set in. That is my new pleasure. The pleasure of having no pain. It brings peace back to me.

My headache is a small issue, however, it reminds me of something else. It reminds me of the time when i had no headache, but i also had no pleasure. And i had to do something else to find pleasure. Why do i not know pleasure in having no headache when i had no headaches?

I believe that many of us do not know of this pleasure. We all tend to look for more pleasure.

Humans craves pleasure. However they do not appreciate pleasure.

Girl's suicide linked to Philippines poverty

A girl aged 11 hanged herself in a Philippines shanty after leaving a letter and diary depicting a life in rampant poverty, newspapers here reported Thursday.
The case put a human face to poverty blighting the nation, where nearly 14 percent of the 87 million population live on less than a dollar a day even as the government says the economy is on a roll.

"I suspect she did it because of our situation," the girl's father, Isabelo Amper, was quoted in the Philippine Daily Inquirer as saying.

In a letter found under her pillow after Mariannet Amper's death, she said she only wished for a bicycle, bag, new shoes and jobs for her parents so she could finish primary school.
"I just want to finish studying and to buy a bicycle," she wrote in the letter, which was addressed to a television programme that grants wishes to viewers.

An accompanying diary revealed the girl, whose family live in a shanty that has no running water or electricity, felt she had been absent from school for more than a month.

In one entry, she wrote: "We weren't able to go to church because we didn't have any money for transport and my father had a fever so my mother and I had to wash clothes for money."
The night before she killed herself, according to reports, she asked her father for 100 pesos (about two dollars) for a school project, but he did not have any money.

Her father said he had been out of a job for several months while his wife works part-time at a noodle factory, earning less than a dollar a day.

The story was reported on the day President Gloria Arroyo told a business forum that her economic reforms were bearing fruit.

"The common people are now feeling the benefits of a growing economy," she said, releasing one billion pesos to boost "hunger mitigation programmes."

However, the respected Social Weather Stations (SWS) institute found in a recent survey about nine million Filipino families rate themselves poor, the majority of whom live in the southern Philippines.

Many of those also experienced "severe hunger" in the past three months, it said.
Anti-poverty coalition the Global Call for Action Against Poverty said its own studies showed the nation's economic growth was not trickling down to the ordinary people, and urged the government to do more.


this is just so darn depressing i dunno wat to say..... 11years old....
