A Catholic, a Protestant, an Muslim and a Jew were in a discussion during a dinner.
Catholic: I have a large fortune....I am going to buy Citibank!
Protestant: I am very wealthy and will buy General Motors!
Muslim: I am a fabulously rich prince.... I will buy Microsoft!
They then all wait for the Jew to speak....
The Jew stirs his coffee, places the spoon neatly on the table, takes a sip of his coffee, looks at them and casually says:
I'm not selling!!!...
Doctors have found a 4-inch (10-centimetre) -long leech living in an impossible place - the windpipe of a 16-year-old boy. Two months ago, Tao Jiayuan felt ill and his voice became hoarse. His mother thought he had caught a cold and gave him some medicine - it didn't work.
Gradually the boy lost weight and felt weak. It wasn't until he had difficulty breathing that his family took him to hospital. Doctors found a leech living in his windpipe. Nan'an Division of Yibin No. 2 Hospital, in Yibin City in southwest China's Sichuan province, performed an operation on the boy late last week and removed the leech.
The bloodsucker seemed hardly affected by the dose of anaesthetic given to the boy and kept creeping on the white paper when it was out of the boy's throat. Though it is an extreme case, it is possible for leeches to steal their way into the human body, according to Doctor Chen Bing who was in charge of the operation. "Leeches may exist in human's nasal cavity or throat," Dr Chen said.
Leeches usually live in fresh water environments, such as creeks, rice fields and ponds. "He must have drunk stream water when working in the field," said Tao Chuanhua, the boy's father.
Falling in love? British tourist in Tenerife left naked and dangling from a stairwell after falling during sex with husband
A British woman was saved by her ankle on Saturday after falling from a landing in Tenerife whilst having sex with her husband, and getting her foot caught in the banisters below. The incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday morning, when the couple were having sex in the stairwell of an apartment block in Adeje on the island of Tenerife. As she fell, the woman got one of her feet caught in the banisters a floor below, where she ended up hanging by her ankle until emergency workers could free her.
According to the police report, the 49-year-old victim, identified only by the initials A. M. A. M., and her husband were having sex against the banister in the communal stairwell of the apartment block, when in a moment of frenzied abandon the woman slipped and fell into the void.
Her fall was stopped somewhat abruptly when her right ankle got caught between two bars of a banister several metres below where the amorous encounter had begun. As a result of the sudden break in her fall, the woman was left hanging upside down, stark naked, just inches from the ground whilst her husband tried to get help.
Local police, national police and a crew of firefighters responded to his emergency call, with the latter getting the task of cutting through the bars of the banister to release her right leg. The woman suffered a fracture to her right ankle and was taken to the local hospital. If that had not been enough embarrassment for one night, the ambulance's siren wasn't working so the couple were given a police escort to the hospital.
An Argentinian pilot had a miraculous escape when his aerobatic plane fell out of the air.
Dramatic pictures show the moment the wing of the plane came off during a flying display in Santa Fe.
The plane caught fire, but the pilot escaped from the cockpit unaided and unharmed.
