Skydiving Proposal At 13,000 Feet

Stunned Nicola Burgess was on cloud nine today after her boyfriend proposed – just moments after they leapt out of a plane at 13,000 feet. Nicola, 30, was skydiving with Daniel Dixon, 32, when he held out his specially made gloves to her and she spotted a message on the palms saying: ‘marry me’. It took her a good few seconds to realize what had just happened, but she had just enough time to accept with a thumbs up before her parachute went off.” w/ photos

Workers Made To Display Breast Size?

A lingerie chain is under fire in Sweden after allegedly making female employees wear name tags displaying their breast size. The company, Change, says the scheme is voluntary and intended to help shoppers choose the right size for their purchases. But workers complain they are pressured to wear the tags which show both the wearer’s bust circumference and cup size. One worker complained: “We have dirty old men coming into the shop looking at my cup size. “Why should everyone get to know that? Guys selling underwear don’t have to show their size.” Susann Haglund, CEO of Change, said the tags had originally been suggested by the employees themselves. They were intended to aid customers in their choice by showing them what size might be right for what body shape.” w/ photos

Top 10 Famous Hypochondriacs

“No one wants to get sick. Don’t we all wrap up warm in winter to insulate ourselves from the cold and be extra careful around snot-nosed ill people? Only a few of us, though, ever get really serious about it. For instance, have you ever spent a day picking up everything with a tissue? Or taken detailed notes of your flatulence? Or simply retired from human interaction altogether and conversed through letters and the phone because it’s so much more sanitary? Well these famous folks have. And you thought the famous were happy.” w/ photos
