Thread for Karenh

karen is suffering with a bad back and a dearth of television and SO relief.

Post here with anything that might keep her amused :laugh:

Quote:Warning: Your Flip Flops Could Kill You Wearing trendy flip flops could kill you, according to new research.The fashionable footwear - ideal for the beach in hot weather - are putting the lives of road users at risk.Three in every four motorists have admitted they find it hard to drive in flip flops and road safety experts have warned that wearing the sandals in the car could be a lethal decision.

Researchers claim a flip flop, worn by millions, can easily get stuck under the pedals and cause a fatal accident, The Sun says.

Craig Martin, spokesman for Norwich Union who carried out the poll, told the newspaper: "Footwear such as flip flops are dangerous as the sole can get caught under a pedal.

"The absence of ankle support can lead to the foot slipping off the pedal altogether."

Leigh Purves, gossip columnist for the Daily Star, is among those to have had a close call while driving with designer flip flops.

She has told how, while travelling on the M1, her sandal got stuck under the brake pedal and she missed another car "by millimetres".

The Sun also says that German researchers revealed last year that 14 out of 25 pairs of flip flops they studied contained toxic chemicals known to lower sperm count in men and attack the liver, kidneys and reproductive organs.

I'm now going to burn all my flip-flips as they are quite obviously life-threatening, so straight away I've got something todo now! Then I shall spend peruse Patsy's link in the hope that it will keep me engrossed until Coronation Street comes on tonight.

My day now has a purpose! Thank you gals....

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

Loving this one from the completely useless site:

The 1997 Jack Nicholson film - "As Good As It Gets", is known in China as "Mr. Cat Poop".

but

what is a Malamute?

- Source of the name "Indiana Jones": it was the name of producer George Lucas' pet Malamute.

Wow...when did that happen MissG...I was over there in 95 & 96 and I was terribly confused when a guy asked me if I liked his new thongs.....I didn't know where to look! Blush

After he grasped the fact that I used the word thong in a different way it was his turn to blush.... :naughty:

Sorry KH...this is supposed to be your interesting thread thingy and here I am twittering on about thongs and flip flops....
