Lost girls update Facebook

who_you_gonna_call

So imagine you went for a spot of urban exploration and found yourself lost in the stormwater drains. What do you do?
Do you: call triple-0 on your phone to contact the emergency services or do you update your Facebook status to say you’re trapped in some drains?

Well two girl 10 and 12 from Adelaide were in the exact same predicament after a foray into the Adelaide stormwater drain system, and which choice did they choose?
Update their Facebook status to being lost of course. What modern teen would be so un-hip to call the emergency services with their web enabled phones?

According Glenn Benham from the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS):

“If they were able to access Facebook from their mobile phones, they could have called 000, so the point being they could have called us directly and we could have got there quicker than relying on someone being online and replying to them and eventually having to call us via 000 anyway.” he said.

Obviously the emergency services were concerned that posting online about your predicament, instead of calling  would delay a rescue effort, and that the girls were lucky that a friend was online to notice that the girls were trapped and called 000.

Now this particular incident reminds me of a particular episode of The IT Crowd.

Staying up late to work on a Database design project I stumbled upon this when my Sankaku Complex Rss bookmark updated.
From the land of the rising sun something that trumps even the likes of Queer Eye for the Straight guy – I present to you Cross Dressing Paradise.
A game show where young lads are transformed into alluring young women.
Unsurprisingly the audience was full of young high teenage girls.

I’ll have to say the makeup artists are amazing in their field you can almost mistake some of theses guys for girls if it was a just a glance.
Bricks were shat.

A man resident of the town of Orsha, Belarus murdered a couple for apparently ‘humilliating’ his dog.

The scuffle broke out when a drunken couple stumbled upon the man and started to tease his dog.
The man also drunk was apparently pushed over the edge by the couple teasing his dog, he felt the need to punish theses two heathens by bludgeoning both of them to death with a log.

After he was later arrested and charged with two counts of murder, it was also apparent that the man had previous convictions.

He stated that he killed the couple out “love for his canine friend”.

A man aged 26 a resident of Brooklyn, New York was found by police bleeding profusely behind a building.

Apparently he had bitten off the tip of his penis, he is now recovering in hospital.
The police have no idea as to why the man bit off his penis but have come to the conclusion that it would not have been the work of a sane mind.
