Deadly Crossing Australian killed as train crushes car

The train (number 911) was travelling from Bangkok to Suan Son Pradiphant and the collision was at the crossing closest to Hua Hin Railway station which mainly provides access to the Royal Hua Hin Golf Club, and it is believed that Mr Dickinson was indeed on his way to play golf there. It has been reported that there was also a passenger in the car who was taken to hospital but no official details have been released as to their identity or condition. Mr Dickinson was 64 years old and leaves a Thai wife and her son behind.

Weird News

A lucky trucker survived a real-life cliffhanger when his overloaded lorry balanced above a 122m (400ft) drop after its brakes failed. The lorry – loaded with 40 tonnes of coal – was going too fast to make a turning in Qingzhen, south-west China. ‘The driver had been convinced he was going to die and took a lot of persuading to climb out of his cab and back up the truck,’ said a police spokesman.

WASHINGTON, USA Potato-only diet: US man eats nothing but 20 spuds a day for two months A man in the US has finally come to the end of his highly publicised potato-only diet, which resulted in him losing a stone and a half in weight over two months. Chris Voigt started his unique diet on October 1 in an attempt to draw attention to the nutritional benefits of eating the vegetable. As executive director of the Washington State Potato Commission, Mr Voigt hopes his efforts will highlight what a good source of fibre, potassium and vitamin C potatoes are. He is believed to have eaten nothing but 20 potatoes every day for 60 days and claims despite health warnings, has actually lost weight and seen his cholesterol level drop. ‘The people who know me closely know I’m a huge introvert, so this is kind of out of my comfort zone, being front and center,’ he said. ‘But this is also part of my job, so I embrace it and welcome it.’ After 60 days of eating only spuds, Mr Voigt said he was planning on having a belated Thanksgiving turkey dinner for his first proper meal in two months.

The intuitive notion that this phrase derives from the undeniable wisdom of checking a fence before jumping over it on horseback appears to be misguided. Such behaviour is and was common enough amongst riders to have been given a name, i.e. ‘craning’. Nevertheless, the proverb as first recorded refers specifically to the rashness of leap unpreparedly into marriage. This proverb is first recorded in John Heywood’s A dialogue conteinyng the nomber in effect of all the prouerbes in the Englishe tongue, 1546: And though they seeme wives for you never so fit, Yet let not harmfull haste so far out run your wit: But that ye harke to heare all the whole summe That may please or displease you in time to cumme. Thus by these lessons ye may learne good cheape In wedding and all things to looke ere ye leaped The Miracles brought the idea up to date in 1960 with Smokey Robinson’s Shop Around: Just because you’ve become a young man, now, There’s still some things that you don’t understand, now. Before you ask some girl for her hand, now, Keep your freedom for as long as you can, now. My mama told me, “You better shop around”.

COMPUTER SEX Two groups of computer experts were set up in order to find out whether computers are male or female: one group was male, and the other group was female. The group of women reported that computers should be refereed to as “HE” because: 1. In order to get their attention you have to turn them on. 2. They have a lot of data but are still clueless. 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems but half the time they are the problem. 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a newer and better model. The group of men reported that computers should be refered to as “SHE” because: 1. No one but the creator understands their logic. 2. The native language they use to talk to other computers is incomprehensible to anyone else. 3. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval. 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

Fixtures and Predictions (all times Thailand) Saturday, 4 December 2010 Arsenal v Fulham, 22:00 Fulham could be plunged into the bottom 3 even with a draw here, and we think they will be despatched fairly easily here by the Gunners. Birmingham v Spurs, 22:00 A decent draw for the Blues last week and a great win for Spurs; this will be tight but we can see the away side squeaking it. Blackburn v Wolves, 22:00 Blackburn’s reaction to the pasting they got last week will be interesting, while Wolves gained a vital win. This looks like a probable draw. Chelsea v Everton, 22:00 We think this is likely to be a tense affair as both teams try to recover from a slump in form. Very tight and a shock away win. Man City v Bolton, 22:00 Both of these teams suffered disappointing draws last week but this should be quite a game with lots of goals. City to edge it. Wigan v Stoke, 22:00 Wigan were poor last week and Stoke will see this as a chance of some points. Martinez will demand better though and we predict a draw.

Sunday, 5 December 2010 Blackpool v Man Utd, 00:30 One of the high profile games the home fans would have been waiting for, but United’s demolition of Blackburn last week will make them uneasy. Lots of goals and an away win. West Brom v Newcastle, 20:30 Tricky fixture of the week time! The Baggies got a great result last week to end a disappointing run of form, while Newcastle wouldn’t have been completely happy with their draw. We think this will be another draw. Sunderland v West Ham, 23:00 The Hammers have a decent record against Sunderland, but such is their away record it is hard to predict a win, and we think Sunderland will take revenge for the Carling Cup defeat earlier in the season. Home win. Tuesday, 7 December 2010 Liverpool v Aston Villa, 03:00 Likely to be an emotional return for Houllier and he and Hodgson can share some Werthers Originals after the game. Can’t see Villa going for it here and a draw seems likely.

Premier League News



Hyperbole At Large Premier League redefines epic

london, england THE Premier League has seen its biggest weekend of epic, 110 percent giving since Sky Sports invented football. Every team managed to score at least one empty, windswept cliché, with Manchester United’s Dimitar Berbatov racking up five pages of tabloid alliteration. He becomes the first top flight striker to grab such a haul of overly-effusive folderol since Alan Shearer did something that everyone has forgotten about in 1999. Footballologist Wayne Hayes said: “The sheer volume of commentators saying it’s the greatest league in the world shows that it’s the greatest league in the world for hearing how it’s the greatest league in the world. While the Spanish press may have more technically-gifted sports journalism you cannot beat the English league’s coverage for sheer excitement. Assuming you’re also fond of devastatingly poor sentence construction.” Meanwhile more than 90% of managers described various things as ‘epic’, while the alleged

Wenger (above) struggles to come up with new superlatives magnificence of their players was up 262% from this time last year. Arsene Wenger topped the league by describing Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Aston Villa as ‘the encapsulation of 10,000 years of civilisation and the shining moment that, when the universe finally fizzles into cold oblivion, will mark out humanity’s existence’.

But Wolves boss Mick McMarthy is likely to face an FA investigation for bringing the game into repute after describing his side’s lastminute winner against Sunderland as merely ‘smashing’. The weekend’s perspective-free balderdash was rounded off by the FA Cup third-round draw, which saw dozens of relativelyimpoverished teams given the opportunity to not win the trophy by beating fourth-string versions of teams that couldn’t give a tinker’s tuppence if the trophy was melted down and turned into a statue of Wayne Rooney blowing his muck up a strumpet. The midweek Carling Cup clashes have added to the almost mystical air surrounding British football currently, as Toad of Toad Hall led ‘basement battlers’ West Ham to a startling win over ‘table toppers’ Manchester United, as Jon Spector confused both teams by playing well, and team mate Carlton Cole scored twice for the first time in his career. Sir Alex Ferguson has apparently imploded and become a new black hole.
