My son conked out quite early tonight - probably after only 3 or 4 times through his favourite book.

I'd say this amounted to 20 minutes tops.

Any **** on here who felt the need to read to a child tonight for longer than 20 minutes, thus disadvantaging my son, sort it out, you selfish pigs.

How would that even make it to court, "religious and moral" laws are not legal laws, sinning isn't illegal.

I just read Stephen frys book.

It's pretty funny, starts off about his early life and then spends the rest of the book talking about his 15 year long raging cocaine addiction.

He really, really liked coke.

Black friends furious after Google Photos app tags them as gorillas

Image

GOOGLE has been forced to apologise after its new Photos app automatically tagged photos of black people as ‘gorillas’.

The internet giant’s latest Google Photos application uses an auto-tagging feature to help organise uploaded images.

But the app was anything but helpful for Jacky Alcine, whose selfie with a friend was grouped into a collection called ‘gorillas’.

Man drinks 10 beers, tells boss to 'f--- off', wins claim for unfair dismissal

An employment tribunal has ruled that a man who sexually harassed female colleagues and told his bosses to “f--k off” at a Christmas function was unfairly dismissed, in part because unlimited quantities of alcohol were served.

The employee has not been named, but he was a team leader with a road building company.

The office called to say if you don't come in tomorrow, don't bother coming in Friday.

Out of context, that looks so odd.

Hey Dad actor Robert Hughes gets attacked with human excrement by fellow prisoners

HEY Dad actor Robert Hughes was covered in human faeces and urine by prison inmates who “unloaded” on him on his first day in jail. Hughes, the Australian television celebrity sentenced last year for indecently assaulting four victims, was attacked by prisoners as he walked into a yard in Goulburn Prison. But not with their fists.
