weird event: January 2008 Archives
(Odd News) Scientists have calculated that Monday 24 January is going to be the most depressing day of 2008.
Poor weather, credit card bills from christmas and failed new year resolutions all add up to a pretty depressing day says Cliff Arnalls, a tutor at Cardiff University.
He has even produced an equation (1/8W+(D-d) 3/8xTQ MxNA) which explains why today will be a dark day for many.
An alcoholic who gave himself a sherry enema has been awarded the Darwin award for 2007.
The annual award is given to the person who improves the human gene pool by accidentally removing themselves from it.
Michael a 58-year-old from Texas, USA, was described by his wife as being addicted to enemas and she said often used alcohol in this way. On one fateful occasion he used two 1.5 litre bottles of sherry and passed out - the following morning he was found dead.
