    It doesn't say anywhere that this thread has to be all about bad news.

    Stranded couple given impromptu wedding - Yahoo! News UK

    A hotel in Taiwan organised an impromptu wedding for a Slovakian couple who found themselves stranded on the island for six days and unable to get home for their own long-planned ceremony after volcanic ash closed Europe's skies.

    When Juraj Hegyi, 32, and Zuzana Marcekova, 31, were spotted crying in the Orchard Park Hotel near Taiwan's main airport, the manager offered to set up a wedding on site, inviting clergy from a nearby university and packing the venue with 100 people including other stranded Europeans.

    "This is not our normal line of work, but the boss here learned they were crying, that they wanted to go back urgently and had planned the wedding for more than a year," assistant hotel manager Chou Chia-hui said Wednesday.

    The couple was visiting Taiwan on a tour of Asia that had also taken them to Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.

    This is profissionalism and humanity on the part of the hotel. I think it should be named :)

    Renault urged to rethink Zoe name - Yahoo! Cars

    Renault could soon find itself facing one of the most bizarre legal challenges in automotive history. A 23-year-old woman from Paris called Zoe Renault has warned the French maker it may face court action if it calls its electric supermini Zoe, as planned.

    Ms Renault has hired a law firm to act on her behalf, though the company is also representing a host of other women called Zoe with the same concern.

    A formal letter has been drafted to the carmaker by the law firm, petitioning it to change the electric car's name. The letter claims it is an 'attack on the rights' of women named Zoe.

    Renault is reported to be considering dropping the 'Zoe ZE' tag. The car is still a concept, though the production model will hit UK roads in 2012. It's possible the showroom car adopt a new name.

    Zoe means 'life' in Greek, and ZE stands for 'zero emissions'. Talking to Le Parisien newspaper, Ms Renault claimed she could not cope with hearing phrases like 'we need to get Zoe overhauled'.

    Good grief...
    Ms Renault claimed she could not cope with hearing phrases like 'we need to get Zoe overhauled'.
    Maybe I should sue the all christians for the ribbing I got at school... I dont know "how I coped" with "Good heavens, its Evans"...
    or " 'evans above, here comes Evans"
    Or maybe I should sue all people that have hands because "I cannot cope with"
    "Hey Andy!... thats handy!"

    ..and who is one of my mates friends going to sue (other than her own PARENTS FOR CALLING HER THIS) She introduces herself thus..
    "The name is Butts, Ophelia Butts".
    Not sure if she still lives there, but she was in the Leighton Buzzard phone book for a few years

    In a similar vein ..... I used to breed amphibians ~ Hold that a minute.

    One day, on a chilling hunch, I asked my new wife, Sally, " What's your middle name, Sal' ? "

    She only went and said it, didn't she?! " Amanda " :huh:

    I felt a sudden and over powering urge to slap!

    BBC News - German bank 'blown up by robbers in botched raid'

    German bank 'blown up by robbers in botched raid'
    Suspected robbers in Germany appear to have miscalculated the quantity of explosives needed to blow their way into a rural bank.

    The building housing the bank in the northern village of Malliss was largely destroyed by an overnight explosion.

    The bank's cash machine survived intact and the suspected thieves are not thought to have made away with any money, Germany's Welt Online reported.

    No-one was injured, though the blast damaged nearby cars and buildings.

    Investigators were working on the assumption that robbers had placed their explosives, possibly made from petrol or acetylene, at the entrance to the bank, German broadcaster NDR said.

    The presence of a delivery van near the site of the explosion indicated that the suspected thieves may have intended to drive off with the cash dispenser, local media reported.

    BBC News - Bald man wins police hair drug test appeal

    A bald man whose application to join the police was rejected because he did not have enough hair for a drugs test has successfully appealed the decision.

    ...

    Because of his baldness, he could not give them hairs of up to 3cm in length.

    He was also unable to provide about 200 body hairs as an alternative ...

    That is strange. I did all my compulsory drugs tests (Army and Police) in a urine bottle.

    The point of testing hair is for history and its very 'expensive' which suggest they wouldn't undertake hair tests as a standard routine (SYP had to send hair to France as there wasn't anywhere in the UK that could do it in 2006/07/08 as far as I'm aware).

    I suspect and I stress suspect, they wouldn't test hair unless they were trying to ID when he took drugs last, which would suggest he failed a urine test to me.
