Fight Against Maturity

Buffy led 50,000 women astray. Yeah, right.


Hollywood actress Sarah Michelle Gellar’s hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has been blamed for 50,000 women abandoning traditional Western religion to study paganism.


The “study” was done in England and published in Women and Religion in the West. The Church of England has no comment. That’s no surprise.

Me? Oh, I just stopped off on this island…for 27 years.

There’s more at Return of ‘Robinson Crusoe’

A Taiwanese fisherman shocked his family by suddenly reappearing – after being deserted on an island for 27 years.

Hu Wenhu, 58, went on a fishing trip to the Indian Ocean in 1981 and stopped at Reunion Island for a short stopover, reports Taiwan Network.

“We arrived at the island after three months at sea, and the captain told the 30 of us that the ship would sail again in 15 days,” he said. “However, when I came back 15 days later the ship had already left with the others, and I had to beg on the streets.”

With the help of the islanders, Hu learnt French at school, opened a Chinese restaurant on the island and later he even married three times.

Priest’s gift from God

A Bulgarian priest is to go under police surveillance – because of a field of cannabis he claims is a gift from God.

Father Cyril Papudov has been arrested seven times but police have never caught him actually cultivating the crop. He claims the cannabis seeded by itself and is part of God’s gift of nature and nothing to do with him.

The passenger complained of choking and a swollen neck and was transported to a Frankfurt hospital for treatment.
