The world's worst wedding reception
An Austrian woman has been granted a divorce because her husband cheated on her with a waitress during the wedding reception. The bride’s dad walked in on the groom having a quickie with the waitress in the kitchen, and without saying why, went back out and shut down the music and sent the guests home. After waiting the required six months, the bride filed for divorce, which was granted. The groom, meanwhile, has married the waitress.
Bibi and Poldi's long romance is over
After a century of marital bliss, the world’s longest romance appears to be over. Bibi and Poldi—a pair of Galápagos giant tortoises—are no longer on speaking terms after a century together. Keepers at the Reptile Zoo in Klagenfurt, Austria, say the pair fell out after a fight in which Bibi took a chunk out of Poldi’s shell. Now, whenever they are reintroduced, Bibi hisses at Poldi, who responds with violent lunges. “They are both 115 and have been together since they were young,” said zoo owner Helga Happ. “But they just can’t stand each other anymore.”
Should men urinate sitting down?
A Swedish leftist party has proposed barring government employees from urinating standing up. A proposal submitted by Left Party councillor Viggo Hansen would require all men employed by Sörmland County Council to urinate sitting down while using government restrooms, which he hopes will be converted into unisex facilities. Not only is it healthier for men to urinate sitting down, says Hansen, but they make less of a mess when they do so. “We want to give men the option of going into a clean toilet,” said Hansen.
