An unlikely trio

Wild fox, wild eagle (another eagle in the foreground perched on the lamp post) and a stray cat...all come and socialise together (for food most probably).  The cat sitting down is her pet cat.

Wouldn't this be just awesome to open your door to?!!

A wife’s consent to donate sperm?

A British woman is campaigning for the legal right to veto her husband’s choice to donate sperm, it has emerged.

The unidentified complainant says her partner volunteered samples of his semen to a registered clinic after becoming stressed by the birth of their child, reported MailOnline.

Disgruntled, the mother-of-one from Surrey has contacted the Human Fertilisation And Embryology Authority, arguing that women across the UK should be able to deny their spouse’s free will on the matter – because sperm is a ‘marital asset’.

Interesting Art

Alexandre Orion – Skulls in Sao Paolo Hailing from Brazil, Alexandre sees his art work as a way of getting an environmental message across to those who ordinarily wouldn’t listen.

In 2006, Orion created Ossário, an intervention in one of São Paulo's road tunnels. Orion spent seventeen days using pieces of cloth to selectively remove the thick layers of car exhaust soot from the sidewalls of the tunnel, creating skull drawings outlined by the years of grime left to accumulate on the walls. The tunnel was transformed into a virtual catacomb with over 3,500 hand-designed skulls reminding people that the same black soot impregnating the tunnel walls was also darkening their lungs and lives.
The Brazilian authorities were incensed but couldn’t actually charge him with anything so they instead cleaned the tunnel. At first the cleaned only the parts Alexandre had cleared but after the artist switched to the opposite wall they had to clean that too.

In the end, the authorities decided to wash every tunnel in the city, missing the irony completely, it seems.

Sex 101

AN Adelaide couple face being fined $4000 for having sex a little too loudly.

They face a hefty fine for breaching the Environmental Protection Act of 1993, News Ltd reports.Under South Australian law, noise is classified as a form of pollution and that includes vibration.

Police patrols have visited the couple's unit 20 times since April, News Ltd said.

"We exceeded the noise pollution to the point we were arrested and taken out of our house and told we couldn't have sex," she said.

An Emergency Environment Protection Order had been served on the couple on Sunday last week, ordering them to cease all noise for 72 hours.

But the couple are reported to have ignored that order and police were called again on Tuesday morning.

Mr MacKenzie blamed his girlfriend for the noise.
"Our average sex goes anywhere from four, six, seven hours, basically five nights a week," he said.
"That's pretty much why I am asleep at six o'clock in the afternoon.
"I will probably die of a heart attack.
"She is almost killing me as it is."
