Police in Sri Lanka have arrested the reigning Mrs World Caroline Jurie, after she allegedly injured a fellow beauty queen in an on-stage bust-up.

Pushpika De Silva won the "Mrs Sri Lanka" title in a televised ceremony on Sunday, and former winner Mrs Jurie was meant to crown her. Instead, she pulled the crown off Mrs De Silva's head, claiming she could not hold the title as she was divorced. The winner later said she is separated from her husband, not divorced.

Mrs Sri Lanka is part of the Mrs World beauty pageant series for married women. The winners of each country's title progress to the overall Mrs World competition.

"There is a rule that prevents women who have already been married and are divorced, so I am taking steps to make the crown go to second place," Mrs Jurie told the audience.

"Mrs World"? I'd never heard of that before. They should do Miss/Ms/Mrs and of course Missus Worlds.

Where are the "Old Hag World" and "Young Hag World" competitions?
They are held with Old Bastard World and Young Knobber World.

The former involves setting the world to rights down the pub, the latter involves dangerous driving and beating up the Old Bastard World Champion up down the pub.

I am not sure where to put this.

The British tabloids now are reporting that on Tottenham’s YouTube channel, Wales Superstar Soccer player Gareth Bale fights with teammate Joe Rodon over UFOs.

Gareth has seen UFOs and is upset with Joe for not believing.

Maybe someone can post this story since it from England.

So I guess a situation could exist on Schrodingers World where a trans person could be both male and female at the same time.....until observed?

.....Mr Universe is always from Earth?
Aaaah, but it is open to those from other planets. It's not our fault if they don't come and compete. And besides, how are we to know that the winner IS always from Earth?

This will shock you.Before I left mainstream education the school I was in a teacher showed hardcore porn very illegal to one class in secondary school in the uk this was in the late 1980s.
It was a all boys school.
Very illegal indeed! Did the school's name begin with a A?

That's grooming. Have you spoken to anyone about it?
Yes my mum and dad when I got back from school the day it happened plus it was a long time ago and I wasn't in the class that the porno was shown to and as far as I know no one complained about it and it only happened once and I don't remember the teacher name and don't think there was any sinister intentions just a really bad judgement call and the hole school new about it so I'm sure someone spoke about to someone.

It's great that you told your parents.

A New York man has been arrested for conducting a sustained campaign of bomb explosions at the house of a former friend against whom he has a grudge.
Man charged in spate of explosions outside ex-friend’s home

An upstate New York man has been charged with setting off explosives in another man’s yard and sending letters to neighbors warning that he planned to continue doing it.

James A. Pane, 50, of Rochester, is being held at least until a court hearing Tuesday ...

Pane was arrested and made an initial court appearance after his home was searched Thursday. He faces charges including using an explosive to destroy property and mailing threatening communications. ...

Residents near Falleson Road reported hearing blasts between Jan. 20 and Feb. 2, according to a criminal court complaint. Investigators from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives eventually got video of an explosion around 2:30 a.m. Feb. 2 at one Falleson Road home; the images came from a doorbell surveillance camera at nearby houses and showed a reddish pickup truck near the Falleson Road house about a minute before the blast ...

A resident of the house then told investigators that he had had a falling-out with his longtime friend Pane and that Pane drove a maroon pickup, the complaint said. ...

Then, in late February and early March, residents of several nearby homes got anonymous letters saying the sender was at odds with a resident of the targeted house over money.

“I don’t mean to bother you people in this neighborhood,” the sender wrote but went on to say: “I will keep throwing bombs off in his yard until he pays. Call the cops they won’t catch me.”

Investigators found several recipients’ addresses listed on a piece of paper in Pane’s trash, and they discovered materials used to make the explosives at his home, according to the complaint.

Do you mean the porn itself was very illegal, or just showing it to secondary school boys?
