A 20-year-old man shocked his family after he apparently walked into his own wake.
Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo’s relatives had been mourning his death at his home when he reportedly rocked up to the gathering.
His family had thought he’d been killed in a gangland shooting in the village of Santa Teresa, Amambay, in Paraguay.

They even identified his burned remains and buried them, according to perfil.com
But Penayo was alive and had just not bothered to tell them where he was for a week.
Organised crime specialist Candido Figueredo told local media Penayo left his home last Thursday and had not come back.


Pic shows: The funeral; A young man gave his grieving family the shock of their lives when he suddenly walked into the wake they were holding in his honour. The incident occurred in the village of Santa Teresa in the eastern Paraguayan department of Amambay. Twenty-year-old Juan Ramon Alfonso Penayo returned home after he had last been seen several days earlier, and found his family and friends mourning his death. Police had earlier discovered the gruesome remains of a burned body that could not be identified, and family members believed it was Penayo. As drug gangs operate in the area, they feared that he had become embroiled in trouble and met an untimely end. Organised crime specialist Candido Figueredo told local media that Penayo left his home on Thursday last week and had not come back. When police found the unidentifiable burned body, it was concluded that it was Penayo and his family organised the funeral and buried the remains. However, they were stunned to see him casually walk into the house in the middle of the wake they were holding for him. Areas of northern Paraguay???s Amambay Department, which borders the Midwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil, are hotly contested between rival drug organisations, according to official sources. Reports suggest that there is little border control in the region, making it attractive territory for traffickers.

We imagine his family were both pleased and annoyed with the young man who just casually walked back into his house while his family were in tears.
Penayo’s couldn’t be blamed for thinking he was dead considering areas in Amambay, which borders the Midwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil, are hotly contested between rival drug organisations.
Traffickers also operate in the region, which make things even worse.
It has not been confirmed who the person Penayo’s family buried was.

One guy learned the hard way why you shouldn’t send unsolicited dick pics.
You know, other than the reasons of common decency and respecting people’s consent.
Reddit user Th3GreenMan56 shared screenshots of a conversation between him and a guy named Brandon, who thought the person he was texting was a girl from class.
Th3GreenMan56 tried to tell Brandon he had the wrong number, but he wasn’t having any of it.

In fact, after being told he hadn’t actually been given a girl’s number, Brandon replied: ‘Cmonnnn it’s Brandon from ECON.
‘I asked Shannon for your number. Let’s hangout. *Hand itching to unzip pants*.’
Creepy, right?

Brandon was yet again told he had the wrong number, with Th3GreenMan56 even telling him that he in fact had a moustache.
And you know how Brandon dealt with that? By sending a dick pic.
Yeah, we don’t get it either. I mean, even if he was texting the girl from class, she clearly wasn’t interested. So how on earth was his first solution to send a photo of his genitals?

Did he really think that was going to make her fall at his feet?
Of course, the conversation had to end – and the Reddit user definitely didn’t want to see any more penis than he had to that day, and therefore he responded with a photo of his own face looking very uncomfortable.

Man had foot amputated then served it to friends for dinner


A man fed his foot to a group of friends at a dinner party after being forced to have it amputated.
The bizarre incident came to light this week after the amputee told his story on Reddit.
Oh, and he accompanied it with a set of pictures that are enough to make you lose your lunch (so we will do you a favour and keep them to ourselves).
Religious laws in the US say you can insist on retaining amputated bits so at your funeral – your corpse is complete.
But there are few laws around America that actually strictly forbid eating human bits.

So, that’s why this man – only known by his Reddit username IncrediblyShinyShart – came up with ‘Happy Taco Tuesday’.
Around two years ago, he was seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident and despite a battle, medics were forced to amputate his foot.

The patient then asked to keep it – and after completing some paperwork (adoption papers) he took it home.
On July 10th, 2016, just three weeks after the accident, he invited 11 open-minded friends to a special meal. Ten showed up.
There was apple strudel, quiche puff pastries, fruit tarts and chocolate cake with gin lemonade punches and mimosas.
All led to the main – foot tacos.

The man said: ‘So my friends and I always had this joke, If you could try human flesh in an ethical and healthy way, would you.
‘And we always said of course. Well the opportunity came up and I called them on it.
‘Originally I wanted to have [my foot] taxidermied or freeze-dried.
‘How cool would it be to have my freeze-dried or taxidermied foot standing around the house as a lamp or a doorstop or something?

‘My mom, who was helping me get back on my feet, so to speak, drove me back to pick it up.’ (Picture: IncrediblyShinyShart/ Reddit)
 
‘All of this came out of the idea that it’s my foot. It’s not going to be cremated and chucked into a landfill. It’s a part of me, and I want it back.
‘Most hospitals have policies where they will release your body parts to you because of some religions where you have to be buried whole, so I just signed the paperwork.
‘My mom, who was helping me get back on my feet, so to speak, drove me back to pick it up.
‘She doesn’t know I ate it, though.
‘I went inside and the hospital gave me my foot in a red plastic biowaste bag. I brought it to the car and immediately put it in a cooler. It was pretty bizarre.
‘I got back to my place and I froze it. I couldn’t find a taxidermist who would take me seriously and freeze-drying was too expensive.

‘It would have been $1,200 (£900) to freeze dry the thing. If I had the money I would have done it.
‘Eventually, I decided to cast it in plaster to use as a doorstop, then capture a 3D rendering so I can make little keychains.
‘When we got back to my house, I took the foot out, and it was so gross, man.
‘It was covered in blood and had iodine all over it. After I cleaned it off, I was pleasantly surprised by how well-preserved it was.

‘Before we cast it, I quickly took a knife from my kitchen and cut a chunk off the top of my shin.
‘The skin was already kind of off from the surgery, leaving a big chunk of muscle exposed. I just took the muscle. I put it in a plastic bag and put it in my freezer.
‘I invited 11 people. I said something like, “Remember how we always talked about how, if we ever had the chance to ethically eat human meat, would you do it? Well, I’m calling you on that. We doing this or what?”
‘Ten said yes. I guess we’re a weird group.’
The foot was the marinated overnight and sauteed it with onions, peppers, salt, pepper, and lime juice.
‘It was later served on corn tortillas with a tomato sauce.
‘People think it tastes like pork because in movies we hear it called “long pig.” But that term originated in places like Papua New Guinea, where they eat wild boar.
‘This particular cut was super beefy. It had a very pronounced, beefy flavor to it. The muscle I cut was tough and chewy. It tasted good, but the experience wasn’t the best.’
Rating the meal a solid 6.5 out of 10, he added: ‘It tasted like buffalo, but chewier. Super beefy and little fat.
‘It’s way better than a hot dog or regular burger. Maybe equal with regular bacon, which is pretty decent.
‘But nowhere near as good as butter seared sea scallops or a rare tenderloin seared in oil in a cast iron pan.’

Woman stabs herself with eyeliner stick while doing make-up in the car

This is a cautionary tale for anyone who does their make-up on their commute.
A woman doing her make-up in a car has been rushed to hospital after she stabbed herself in the eye with an eyeliner stick when her taxi was involved in a minor collision.
She was on her way to see friends when the taxi she was in bumped into another vehicle in a traffic jam in Bangkok, Thailand.
The woman, who was in her 20s, hit the seat in front when the taxi knocked the white pick-up truck in front of them.
Incredibly for the woman, the stick didn’t penetrate her eyeball and her sight will not be affected by the accident.


NEWS COPY - WITH PICTURES A woman who was doing her make-up in the back of a taxi was rushed to hospital yesterday (Tue) when the car had a bump - and her eyebrow pencil stabbed into her EYE. The woman in her 20s was sitting in the rear passenger seat of the yellow and green Toyota during a slow-moving traffic jam at 5.20pm in Bangkok, Thailand, while applying the eye-liner on the way to see friends. But the cabbie wasn't concentrating and shunted the white pick-up truck in front - jolting the girl forward. With the pencil still in her hand, she hit the seat in front and it stabbed herself in the face. Miraculously, the make-up stick missed the vital organs around the left eye and her sight will be unaffected, according to medics who treated her. Paramedic Thanabodee Sabbodi said that the crash was minor but that the ''freak accident'' had caused half of the pencil to plunge into the eye socket of the young woman, who has not been identified. He said: ''The crash happened at 5.20pm in Din Daeng area of Bangkok while the lady was putting on make-up on her way outside for the evening. ''We received a call and there was one injured female with an eyebrow pencil inserted into her left eye. ''She was in a lot of pain when we came but she could still talk to us and explain what happened. There was not a lot of blood but she had a small nose bleed.'' The girl was still conscious and taken to the Rajavithi Hospital where medics removed the pencil without any lasting injuries. Thanabodee added: ''The rescue team and the doctors did a great job to help the victim. This should be a warning to women who do their make-up while cars are still running because accidents can always happen. ''This was a strange accident and unexpected but nobody can predict these incidents. We have to be prepared.'' ENDS

Heartbreaking picture shows little boy comforting sister hours before she passes away


This heartbreaking final moment between a little boy and his dying sister was shared by their father just before she lost her fight with cancer.
Beside the tragic photo of six-year-old Jackson Sooter comforting his four-year-old sister Addy, their dad Matt Sooter wrote that his son was saying ‘goodbye to his partner in crime’.
‘A little boy should not have to say goodbye to his partner in crime, his play mate, his best friend, his little sister,’ Mr Sooter said.
‘This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. But this is the broken world we live in.’
Addy was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic potine glioma in 2016. It’s a type of brain tumour that affects muscles, nerves, heart rate and breathing.
The little girl from Rogers, Arkansas, US, spent the next year and a half undergoing 33 rounds of chemotherapy.

It stopped the tumour for a while, but it started growing again and the family were forced to pay over £150,000 for experimental treatment in Mexico.
But the tumour continued to spread and on June 3, the family prepared to say their goodbyes.
Writing on a Facebook page that kept Addy’s supporters updated, Mr Sooter wrote: ‘Addy’s symptoms have progressed rapidly over the past day and a half.
‘Yesterday she woke up as her spunky playful self.
‘While we still see short instances of our girl she can no longer eat or swallow without difficulty and she’s sleeping most of the time now and we’ve admitted her into inpatient care.
‘Most likely she doesn’t have much time left.’
Just hours after the picture of Jackson refusing to leave his sister’s side was shared, Addy sadly passed away.
Mr Sooter later shared the tragic news to Addy’s wellwishers: ‘She passed from this life to the next just as she had lived: stubbornly but also peacefully, and surrounded by family.
‘She wasn’t in any pain at the end. For those who were wishing to say goodbye, I’m so sorry.
‘This all happened so much faster than we expected, but that in itself is a blessing because she suffered so little at the end.’

Man with the world's biggest penis says it's harmed his career
Jonah Falcon claims to have the biggest penis in the world at 13.5 inches when erect (Picture: Rex)
 
The man who claims to have the world’s biggest penis at 13.5 inches says it has ruined his career in acting.
Jonah Falcon, 47, has failed to land any major Hollywood roles and says its all because of his massive manhood.
He says his ‘naturally large’ penis has earned him a reputation among film directors who are put off by stories surrounding his privates.
Jonah, who lives in LA, said: ‘It’s handicapped my acting because people won’t hire me.
‘It sucks – it relegates me into doing smaller parts.
‘Maybe in the UK or Germany it might help my acting career, but here in Hollywood it’s a negative.’

He was allegedly stopped over fears that a 'noticeable' bulge in his trousers may be something potentially harmful. When stopped anD questioned Jonah, whose penis measures 9 inches when limp and 13.5 inches when erect, explained just what the 'bulge' was. He was then frisked, led through an X-Ray body scanner and checked with a metal detector.

Despite the apparent career knockbacks, Jonah says he loves getting compliments from porn stars and claims having an exceptionally large penis has helped him in the bedroom.
‘I’ve slept with celebrities including Oscar nominees and Oscar winners,’ he said, adding: ‘but I can’t talk about that.’
Jonah claims to be nine inches when flaccid and 13.5in when erect, compared to the average of five to six inches when erect for men.
‘It’s thicker than my wrist,’ he added.
Jonah’s size may be impressive but he still doesn’t beat Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, who in 2015 claimed to have the biggest penis in the world at 18.9 inches.
However, Jonah has previously accused Cabrera of ‘cheating’ to get the world’s largest penis, saying that he stretched it with weights.


Lottery winner wears winking emoji mask so no one can ever bother her for money

This lottery winner couldn’t stop smiling mainly because she was wearing a winking smiley emoji mask.
But she probably still had a grin on her face under the disguise considering she’d just won 180,900,000 Jamaican dollars (£1m).
The woman, who was referred to as N.Gray, wanted to remain anonymous because she didn’t want anyone bothering her for cash, including criminals.

Simone Clarke-Cooper, Supreme Ventures Super Lotto assistant vice-president of group corporate communications, said winners were always concealing their identities in the Caribbean country.
She told the Jamaica Star: ‘In other markets, they don’t necessarily do it, but here I think they opt to do it to keep themselves safe.
Ms Clarke-Cooper said they never helped people come up with disguises because they were not creative enough.
She added: ‘They usually don’t need our help, and they are usually very creative, perhaps beyond anything that we could think of or imagine, and it has been very effective over the years.’

Ms Gray revealed to The Gleaner newspaper she was planning to clear her debts and would also build a community centre for young people in her area.
She added: ‘I started buying Super Lotto in January… Now I’ve won, I want to clear my debt, invest, and I want to do some travelling.’
And if you’re wondering why she didn’t collect her prize away from the cameras to avoid being identified, she was apparently obligated to turn up for the press briefing.

Why does the Queen have two birthdays, when is her real one and how old is she?


Today marks the Queen’s official birthday and it will see her joined by the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace for Trooping The Colour celebrations.
But royal fans will know that just under two months ago, she celebrated her 92nd birthday on 21 April.
So why does the Queen have two birthdays and when is her real one?
Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926, in Mayfair, London, meaning the April date is her real birthday.
Her official birthday, however, falls on the second Saturday of June, so this year it is on 9 June.

The reason for her second non-official ‘official’ birthday is because of King Edward VII – and the great British weather.
It was in 1748 that it was decided that Trooping The Colour would mark the sovereign’s birthday as well as being a military celebration.
King George II was born in the winter of 1683 but didn’t like celebrating his birthday when it was too cold and wet.
So in 1748 he decided he would combine his birthday with the annual Trooping the Colour parade, designed to help familiarise soldiers with the colours of regiment flags.
However, King Edward VII moved Trooping the Colour to a June date because of the unreliable nature of the English weather for a parade, given his birthday was also in November.
From 1979 to 2017 it was held on the Saturday falling between 11-17 June; however, this year’s is Saturday 9 June, making it the week before.

As well as the parade of soldiers and bands, there is usually a 41-gun salute in Hyde Park, an 11-gun salute in Windsor Park and a 62-gun salute at the Tower of London at noon.
The Queen also appears on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with other members of the royal family and there is usually a royal flypast from the RAF.
All British sovereigns are given the option of having an ‘official birthday’, and she does so every year in June.

When the Queen began her reign, the official birthday of the monarch was actually held on a Thursday.
However, this was quickly changed to a Saturday so more members of the public could enjoy the day and watch the parade.
If your birthday is in a winter month, it might be worth considering following George II’s suit and treating yourself to a summer celebration, too.

Husband tells wife 'it's me or the dogs' - she chose the dogs


A woman who claims she was given an ultimatum by her husband over him or the 30 dogs she has rescued says she is now single.
Liz Hazlam, 49, said that husband Mike, 53, told her ‘it’s me or the dogs’.

Unwilling to compromise, she says she is now happier than ever.
Liz, a mum-of-one said: ‘I thought after 25 years, he should know giving up the dogs was not what my intentions were.
‘He just got to the point where he had enough and he wanted to slow down. But I wasn’t prepared to give it all up. So he decided to go, and obviously that was his choice.’
Liz met Mike when she was 16 and left home to move in with him when she finished school.



The couple got married in January 1991 and they share a 22-year-old son, Ollie.
Liz grew up with dogs for most of her life as her mother bred West Highland Terriers and her father owned an animal food business.

15 things you need to know if your child is about to start primary school(Picture: Getty)


Waving your darling four-year-old off at the school gate raises mixed emotions in parents. On the one hand you’re proud and excited about the future. But on the other you’re struggling with the heart-rending realisation that your baby is, well, no longer a baby!

With their shiny brand-new school shoes and their slightly too big uniform, kids going into Reception look adorable. But starting primary school is a huge leap into the unknown, for both parents and kids.
Here are 15 things that you need to know if your child is about to start primary school:

1. Buy extra shirts. And don’t spend too much on them. They will come home grubbier than you can imagine and you don’t want to find yourself trying to clean stains out with baby wipes at 8.25am.

2. Labelling school uniform is a bore. But completely necessary. Although, even if you’ve religiously labelled every last thing, they’ll still come home with someone else’s PE kit.

3. While we’re talking about labelling things, do you need to label socks? Personally, I think life is too short.

4. Getting everybody up and out of the house in time for school is quite possibly the most stressful part of a parent’s day. Whatever you do, don’t forget to set an alarm.

5. They really do lock the school gates if you’re late and you and your child will have to do the walk of shame via the office.

6. That first school play or Christmas show? Make sure you take a large box of tissues. Sob…

7. Boys school trousers are always either too long or too big around the waist.

8. Get ready to accompany your child to a birthday party at least every other weekend for the rest of the year.

9. Book bags are bottomless pits of letters, scraps of paper, artwork, hair clips and the occasional heart-melting piece of paper that says “I love mummy” in over-sized handwriting.

10. The day you forget to check the book bag is always the day preceding a last-minute school trip, own clothes day or bake sale.

11. Kids in Reception are utterly exhausted after school. Plan for some chill out time when you get home from school.

12. And they’re starving too. To avoid a seriously “hangry” child take a snack along when you pick them up.

13. Your fridge will never be big enough to display all the pieces of “art” that your child brings home. You either need to cover the whole house in drawings or get ready to be ruthless and put some in the bin.

14. Didn’t learn to read using phonics? Don’t worry – your child will soon be explaining split-digraphs and other mind-boggling things to you over dinner.

15. Different schools use different reading schemes, but if you don’t dread reading every Biff and Chip book again by the time your second child starts school then you’re a better person than me.

Mother's Day 2017: 12 reasons why motherhood is the best job in the world(Picture: Getty)


March 26 can only mean one thing this year – happy Mother’s Day!
What did you imagine being a mum would be like?
I’m pretty sure that I had some unrealistic expectations about peaceful craft sessions and children skipping off happily to play and sleep.

Oh yes, I definitely had unrealistic expectations about sleep.
The reality of being a mum is probably messier, more exhausting and completely different from how you imagined.

I’ve survived on less sleep for the last seven years than I would have thought possible, and I spend a lot more time getting muddy than I do creating pretty pictures with my kids.
And let’s not even talk about tantrums.

Nonetheless, being a mum has been – and continues to be – the most wonderful experience of my life.
Here are 12 reasons why being a mum is the best job in the world.

1. Cuddles

Whether they need comforting, they’re sleepy or just fancied a hug, it’s pretty awesome to always be at the top of someone’s ‘people I’d like to cuddle’ list.

2. Meeting your newborn

Honestly, nothing beats it.
Holding your tiny baby in your arms after nine months of (at best) discomfort, aka pregnancy, not to mention childbirth, is incredible.

3. Cake

You can eat cake every day during pregnancy, safe in the knowledge that you can worry about it at some distant point in the future.
And if you breastfeed, you can keep it up even longer.

4. Sharing your passion

Baking, football, painting, nature, books – whatever you love, teaching your kids about it is brilliant.

5. Pride

The first time they read a book to you, their first steps, the nursery nativity or going off to uni – whatever stage you’re at, you’ll always be their number one fan.

6. Constant challenges

There’s nothing boring about parenting.
You learn so much about yourself – how to interact with other people, how to control your temper and, yes, how to persuade people to do things they don’t want to do.

7. Maternity leave

A year off of work with the world’s smallest boss? Yes please.
Even if the boss turns out to be a tyrant and you’re too broke to go out for coffee.

8. Behaving like a kid

I’m sure this will stop one day (when they’re too embarrassed to be seen in public with me) but my kids love it when I dance with them or help them collect sticks or count ants.

9. Christmas

It’s just not the same when there are no kids in the family.
My three kids are still young enough to believe in Father Christmas wholeheartedly and I absolutely love everything from cutting out paper snowflakes to putting out a carrot for Rudolph on Christmas eve.

10. The questions

OK, if I’m honest, sometimes they do drive me slightly bananas, but the constant questions from a growing mind are fascinating.
‘Why are plates round?’
‘Why do stinging nettles grow even if no-one plants them?’
‘Why is that a pizza?’

11. Laughing together

Whether it’s a shared family joke or the antics of a sibling, laughing together is such a good feeling.
We recently collapsed in hysterics at the baby throwing every single pair of socks out of a drawer at my daughter.

12. Greatest excuse of all time

There is no need to claim you’re washing your hair any more – no-one can argue with you about needing to stay in now that you have kids.
So relax, put your feet up and open that bottle of wine.

11 reasons why you should always let a man pay on a first date
Manners, innit. (Picture: Getty)
Who should pay on a first date is a bit of a modern-day conundrum.
People differ dramatically in their view towards it, but, generally speaking, there are two types of people in the world – those who think the man should pick up the tab on a first date and those who think the idea of a man paying is outdated.

Should a bloke pay for you on a first date? Yes.
Should you be offended if a man wants to pay on a first date? Absolutely not.
Still confused? Here are 11 reasons why you should always let a man pay on a first date.

1. It’s sexy

Like it or not, we’re still attracted to potential partners based on similar principles as our caveman ancestors, and being a ‘provider’ is one of them, especially when making instinctive, primal decisions.
(Also known as, do you fancy the bloke or not).

2. It’s a true show of character

‘First dinner date buying’ doesn’t mean he’s going to carry you for the whole relationship, nor should you expect it to.
It doesn’t even mean he’ll be doing the same thing the second date, but it does mean he values you enough to be generous.

3. ‘But I wouldn’t expect my friend to pay for my night out … ‘

Your date is not your friend.
And, whilst it would be ridiculous to expect a friend to pay for you on a night out, the dynamics of a date are different, and, so too, are the rules.

4. It’s not all about the money

A man shouting you the first date is not about buying you – it’s about the value of your company, and paying on a first date is the easiest most direct way of demonstrating this.

5. Let him be the provider (it has nothing to do with sexism)

The boundaries are confusing enough these days, but allowing your date to pay means you are letting him flex a bit of the ol’ man muscles, look after you and take romantic control.
It can sound outdated, but, allowing a man to ‘provide’, even if it’s a token gesture of a meal, is far more conducive to chemistry than shouting him down for daring to try to buy you a few glasses of wine and burger.

6. You don’t owe him anything

If you think that your date will expect sex at the end of the night for buying you an American hot, it’s not your values you need to look at it’s your choice of men.

7. It shows you’re gracious

And just because you are capable of paying, it doesn’t mean you should.
First dates are confusing enough without having to launch into an argument about who’s paying at the end of it – offering to pay but graciously accepting the offer not to, shows your date you’re happy to pay your way but won’t get scary if he insists you don’t.

8. Don’t confuse manners with gender stereotypes

Allowing a man to hold a door open for you or pick up a bill won’t mean that you’ll lose the right to vote, it simply means that sometimes it’s Ok to enjoy old school manners.

9. Your turn will come

Pulling out a calculator and splitting a bill straight down the middle is fine if you are fourteen and are dining out on this week’s pocket money.
A far more grown-up way of dating is taking turns on picking up the bill or offering to buy a round of drinks after the meal, to show you’re not in it for a free ride.

10. If he can’t afford to treat you on a first date, he shouldn’t be on it

Or, if he can’t afford to pay the bill he shouldn’t be in the restaurant.
A few drinks, a trip to a gallery or a walk in the park are all perfectly respectable date options that don’t cost the earth.
If dinner was his call it should be his shout.

Meet the guy who's set up a website to find his Ideal Woman
Alan is looking for love.


But he doesn’t want just any girlfriend – he wants to find the Ideal Woman.
And to do so, he’s set up a website.
He’s a 37-year-old computer science grad who says that after facing certain ‘substantial lifestyle changes’, he is ‘slowly trying to find my way out of the rat-race and I would like to find a partner who I can share the rest of my existence with’.
Alan tells Metro.co.uk: ‘In my early 30s, after having had some negative experiences in relationships and still not knowing what I wanted in life, I told myself to start from scratch – listing the things I didn’t want’.
‘So, I drafted a short list which I kept updating every year or so until it became an essay.’
And that essay forms the basis of what Alan is looking for in his Ideal Woman, some of which is here:

Aesthetics

Meet the guy who's set up a website to find his Ideal Woman
This is Alan.
 
Alan is only human and as such, wants a hot girlfriend.
‘Although oriented to seek for an inner beauty, I still can’t detach myself from the terrestrial law of physical attraction, which is simply fatal,’ he says.
‘First things first, she should not be overweight and (should be) respectful towards her body, at least trying to eat healthy food and exercising sometimes.
‘Someone who is preferably around my age but not necessarily – I’d rule out more than a 10 year age gap.
‘I’d prefer classical outfits, or nineties trends with high waist pants and I don’t particularly like super thin high heels.’
But fear not coffee/tobacco/coke fiends – he’s ok with you dabbling so long as you don’t become a full blown addict.

Communication

You’ve got to be fluent in English but you’ve also got to be able to speak a second language.

Personality and experience

‘I obviously couldn’t be together with superficial females who can just think about career, fashion, holidays, owning stuff and have shallow conversations.’
Obviously.
‘I would be looking for a woman who is a free thinker, open minded, free from social constrictions or fake morals and of course a woman who does not believe in any god but in herself and her rational judgement based on empirical, scientific and philosophical knowledge.’
Not only that, but he wants someone who knows what ‘cosmic pain’ is (so, I’m out) and who has ‘experienced suffering enough to see the meaning of life in depth’.

Meet the guy who's set up a website to find his Ideal Woman
This is Alan, again.
 
Alan wants to spend most of his time with his new partner doing all kinds of things which means, I’m afraid, no one who has a job.

‘I wouldn’t be able to accept a relationship with a wage-slave of a 9-to-5. In fact, I will never be able to stand a relationship where I can see my other half only during the nighttime after work. I strongly despise employees and the corporate mentality thus it would be an excellent idea to work together, start a business from scratch.’
AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.
To recap, if this is you, Alan doesn’t want you to contact him:
  • Anyone who believes in God
  • Anyone who wants kids
  • Anyone who is ‘too happy with their current life (which implies that you should start asking yourself some serious questions)’
  • Anyone who can’t run, swim, drive a car, ride a bike
  • Anyone who doesn’t want to ‘venture to some uninhabited island together for a few months’
  • Anyone who is into fashion or is career-focused
Now, most dudes who want a good looking partner are ok with them liking fashion. But for Alan, that’s a real no-no – as is having a job, because careers and clothes = superficiality.
‘Even Coco Chanel said that fashion fades, but style remains. Women who follow fashion are destined to fade together with their poor self awareness,’ Alan explains.
‘Actually being superficial is not about aiming for a better job or modern clothing, but considering them a priority in your life. Women who have failed to be feminine, build a personality or are not emotionally intelligent, become insecure enough to seek a comfortable position in a job where there is someone else telling them what to do.

‘This is what they call independence: the possibility of earning just enough to spend their money on a rent for a place they actually use to sleep only, on weekends, pretentious dine-outs and trashy clothing paid twice the cost of classical clothing. Only few women have enough depth to use their free time to search on google “how to start your own business” , or learn about history instead of watching videos of cats and babies on Facebook or connect intellectually with few friends instead of accumulating hundreds of contacts only capable of spending time at the pub getting drunk.

‘Times goes by and sooner or later this attitude makes a woman weak enough to live in the denial that she does not need a man in her life. I do not want to generalise (of course not, Alan!), but you get that picture when you look at masses.’

Ok so we get it – NO CAREER WOMEN.
But what’s the deal with not being able to run or ride a bicycle?
‘Anthropologically speaking, would you call yourself a human being, if you can’t even swim, run or have a minimum control over your body?’ he says.

When it comes to not being able to drive, he asks how one can call themselves independent if you’ve set such a ‘low value to freedom of movement’.

With such a long list of demands, it sounds like Alan could be in for a long wait. He says that he hasn’t had a chance to go out with anyone he’s met through his site yet but he has got a few messages from women.

However, ‘it seemed that those who wrote to me just read what they liked to read or imagined me’, he laments.

So there we are.
Ladies – if you can run, drive, have no interest in fashion or a career, are not overweight, don’t want kids and can speak more than one language, Alan still single.

Scientist explains why life after death 'is impossible'Scientist Dr Sean Carroll says it is impossible for our consciousness to live on after our body has died (Picture: Getty)


A scientist claims there is no life after death because the laws of physics make it impossible.
After extensive studies, physicist Sean Carroll says for there to be an afterlife, our consciousness would need to be entirely separated from our physical body – which it is not.

Consciousness is a series of atoms and electrons which give us our mind, he says.
The laws of the universe do not allow these atoms and electrons to continue to operate after our bodies have died.

Dr Carroll, a cosmologist and professor at the California Institute of Technology, explained: ‘Claims that some form of consciousness persists after our bodies die and decay into their constituent atoms faces one huge insuperable obstacle: the laws of physics underlying everyday life are completely understood.

‘There’s no way within those laws to allow for the information stored in our brains to persist after we die,’ he wrote in the Scientific American.

Scientist explains why life after death 'is impossible'
There’s no way information stored in our brains can persist after we die, says Dr Carroll (Picture: Getty)
 
Dr Carroll says that Quantum Field Theory (QFT) suggests there is one field for each type of particle.
So all photons in the universe are on one level, all electrons in the universe are on another level and so on.

For life to be able to continue after death, he says tests on the quantum field would have revealed ‘spirit particles’ and ‘spirit forces’ – which they have not.
‘If it’s really nothing but atoms and the known forces, there is clearly no way for the soul to survive death.
‘Believing in life after death, to put it mildly, requires physics beyond the standard model,’ he said.

What is the Standard Model?

The standard model is the name given in the 1970s to a theory of fundamental particles and how they interact.
It incorporated all that was known about subatomic particles at the time and predicted the existence of additional particles as well.
There are seventeen named particles in the standard model.
The last particles discovered were the W and Z bosons in 1983, the top quark in 1995, the tau neutrino in 2000 and the Higgs boson in 2012.

Male motorists in Uganda have jokingly demanded the removal of a pretty traffic warden from a road, because she’s distracting them.
 

While some want her removed, others are adamant she stays.

Police please remove this beautiful traffic officer from Mulago Round about. Cars barely move because of Jam caused by men driving slowly while looking at the traffic officer.

You may suggest route diversion for men during her shift but if it’s her area of deployment she will need more time probably. Criminals are even turning themselves in after seeing her . We hope she will completely changed the face of traffic police force.

Man proposes to girlfriend with a blooming marshmallow in hot chocolate(Picture: Dominique Ansel Bakery)


Now it’s getting chilly outside, all we want is to find someone we fancy so we can snuggle under blankets and drink hot chocolate.
Hot chocolate is a couple-y drink. It’s warm and cosy and made for sharing with someone you love.
So it makes sense, then, that one man used a cup of the stuff to propose to his girlfriend.
We’re not just talking about any hot chocolate, mind you. Matt, from Baltimore, proposed to his girlfriend, Stefanie, with a special type of hot chocolate – the one with a blooming marshmallow flower served at Dominique Ansel Bakery.

Matt tucked the engagement ring inside a marshmallow, waiters added that marshmallow to the hot chocolate they served to Stefanie, it bloomed, and voila – the ring was hidden inside.
As you’d expect, Stefanie was pretty pleased.
‘Stefanie and I met on Instagram 2 years ago, next month and we’ve done everything POSSIBLE to make this very special relationship work from across the pond (she lives outside of Sheffield and I live in the Baltimore/Philadelphia area of the US),’ Matt told metro.co.uk.
‘During this time, she’s visited me in the US a handful of times and this is my second trip over to the UK. I just love England.
‘I had planned this current trip to visit her and wanted to purpose in her own country. I thought where better than London?

‘I had initially planned to propose near one of the bridges but I know that others before us have gotten engaged there. I chose Dominique Ansel Bakery because 1.) we’re both foodies and 2.) I had taken her to the NYC location on her 40th birthday last year and she absolutely loved it.
‘She immediately fell in love with the Cronut and the bakery just like everyone else that has ever been.’

Matt got the idea for his proposal from another couple who’d used the marshmallow flower as a way to offer up the ring. He got in touch with Dominique, told him their story, and asked if he could borrow the bakery’s sunroom to carry out his proposal plan.
On Saturday, it happened.

‘We ordered our hot chocolates and cronuts then Perdita said they’d be over shortly and to take a seat,’ Matt tells us. ‘I excused myself to wash my hands, met Perdita and Chef James to give them the ring and finalize how I wanted everything to go.
‘Chef said he had been practicing the night prior, plus early that morning, and was more nervous than I was to do this!
‘Our hot chocolates came out, Chef served Stefanie’s first and the marshmallow opened perfectly to display her love heart ring.

‘I immediately got on one knee, said some prepared words, Perdita got some great pics and video then Stefanie accepted.’
Naturally, Dominique Ansel’s pretty pleased with how it went down – a cute proposal is a great way to make people want to try out his hot chocolate.
‘The one thing I love the most about what we do is being able to be a part of people’s special occasions and celebrations,’ Dominique told us. ‘We’re all so delighted for the happy couple and their future ahead. And glad it started off with something sweet.’
