Plane Accidentally Empties Toilet Tank Over Cruise Ship, 23 Injured

21 July 2017 - 14:12

Passengers of a cruise ship sailing off the coast of Hawaii had an extremely unpleasant surprise this morning, when chunks of frozen human waste fell on them from the sky.

A Boeing 777 airplane belonging to the Taiwanese airline EVA Air, dumped human excreta midair while traveling from Japan to Hawaii.

Unfortunately, the content of the toilet tank was jettisoned into the sky while the plane was flying over the cruise liner Lady of the Pacific, which was hit by “large chunks of blue ice”.

Hundreds of passengers were standing on the top deck at the time, and many were hit by ice projectiles weighing up to 10 lbs.

Janis Garrison, a passenger who witnessed the whole incident, says the ice appeared very suddenly and took everyone by surprise.
“Large chunks of ice appeared out of nowhere and began falling everywhere. It happened so fast that many people were hurt without knowing what hit them.”

Five passengers were critically injured and 18 more were severely hurt, but the ship’s medical staff intervened rapidly and was able to stabilize all of the victims.

The ship was rapidly redirected to Hawaii to undergo some repair and to allow the injured passengers to obtain better medical care.

Some of them could need weeks of care before they can go back to their regular life.

North Pacific Cruise Lines, who own and operate the Lady of the Pacific, confirmed they would file a lawsuit against the Taiwanese airline.

According to international law, dumping of lavatory waste is illegal, so EVA Air could also face some major fines.

Despite regulations, many Asian airliners continue to jettison the content their toilet tanks over the Pacific Ocean, and even over land.

In December 2016, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) of India ordered a fine of Rs. 50,000 on airlines emptying toilet tanks in the air, after a Delhi neighborhood was repeatedly hit by blue ice.


Time Theft From Phones?

20 July 2017 - 04:54

A buddy called me to warn that he'd taken his phone into a True shop in a mall, and the phone guy told him that his system has been stealing time from him every month. He said the records are only saved for one month, but that last month he'd "lost" more than 360 baht. Over the course of a year, that quickly adds up.

He switched to DTAC to stop this, but apparently it's common on all companies. Has anyone any idea what he's talking about? He said something about the "data applications" being vulnerable.

I already have enough trouble with computers without worrying about my phone trying to get me. :surprised:

BANGKOK — A couple confessed Friday to the theft of 25 fish in two stints – four on one occasion and 21 on the other – last month because they were hungry.

Haeman Suchaleaw, 26 and Srisamon Lapluea, 34 were charged with larceny and brought to apologize to the owner of the nishikigoi, or koi, carps they stole and subsequently ate. The two admitted being among three suspects captured in the security camera footage which shows them taking dozens of fish from a concrete pond at 00:53am on June 24 in front of a shophouse in Soi Ladprao 101.

“We were walking around to sell keychains,” said Haeman. “It was raining so we stopped to shelter ourselves there. We found them. We didn’t have anything to eat so we took them.”

The two said in tears that they grilled the koi fish and ate them with sticky rice.

Rawadee Kietkamchornpattana, 44, said she found out at about 8am on the same day when she went to feed the fish as usual. The owner said it is not about the price but the sentimental value, as she had kept them for more than 10 years.

The 21 fish from Rawadee’s pond  stolen on June 24 were 20 Japanese carps and a Nile tilapia.
Another suspect, identified only as Jack, remains at large.

The couple confessed they had stolen four koi fish on June 21 from a pond in front of Promedia and Organizer company on Sukhonthasawat Road, also in Ladprao district.


If they didn't have anything to eat, where did they steal the sticky rice?

An Australian Man Holidaying In Thailand Temporarily Lost Sight In One Eye After A Stri...

Bendigo, Victoria | A Bendigo man could permanently lose his eyesight after a chlamydia-infected stripper urinated on his face.

Victorian heath authorities have issued a warning to travellers embarking on trips to Phuket Thailand after a local Bendigo man could permanently lose his eyesight.
Whilst on a Bucks Party trip in Phuket, Thailand, a group of Bendigo men were partying at their hotel suite with a bunch of local strippers when one of them gave the unsuspecting best man a Golden shower.

What started as a paradise holiday rapidly turned into Brandon Clark’s, 26, worst nightmare when he started showing symptoms of the chlamydia-infected bacteria.
“It caught me by complete surprise. I washed my face but by the next day my eyes were all red and were extremely painful. The boys took me straight to a local hospital” he told reporters.

Phuket is an extremely popular destination with Australian Bucks parties.

“We were playing a bunch of games with the girIs when one of them instructed me to lay down on the floor. The next thing I know she was standing over me and she let rip and gave me a Goldie. She pissed all over my face and in my eyes.”

The bacteria that induces blindness is transmitted along with chlamydia, explains Dr. Andrew J. Baxton at Bendigo Hospital.

“Put simply, Trachoma is a bacterial eye infection, not unlike the common ‘pink-eye’ or conjunctivitis. Repeated reinfection, combined with the body’s immune reaction, often has devastating consequences eventually leading to scarring that causes the eyelid to turn inwards causing blindness.”

Every year over 600,000 Australians travel to Thailand.

Pissing on someone is a "sex act"?

China Orders That All Personal Vpns Be Banned By February

11 July 2017 - 12:48

China has told its state-run telecommunications carriers to block individuals' access to VPNs by February 1st, 2018, according to a report from Bloomberg which cites "people familiar with the matter" who do not want to be named.

Shutting down personal VPNs would effectively close the window on the way that many foreigners in China access sites outside of the Great Firewall, not to mention locals who also use the services to get around the censorship restrictions of China's infamous "intranet" which blocks many popular foreign social media and news sites.

Of course, over the years, we've seen a number of frightening rumors about an all-out VPN crackdown come and go. However, apart from the occasional particularly sensitive period of time, expats in China remain free to use their VPNs to log onto Facebook or watch videos on YouTube.

But there is evidence that Xi Jinping may be looking to take his "cyber sovereignty" campaign to the next level. Back in January, China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced a crackdown against unauthorized VPNs used to conduct business, while, earlier this month, GreenVPN notified its users that it was being forced to shut down after "receiving a notice from regulatory departments."

If China does launch a massive crackdown against personal VPNs, it will likely undue all the work that it has done in recent years aimed at attracting more "high-quality" foreigners to come and work in the country. It also isn't likely to help draw back those that have already left.

"This seems to impact individuals," Jake Parker, Beijing-based vice president of the US-China Business Council, told Bloomberg. "VPNs are incredibly important for companies trying to access global services outside of China,” he said.

"In the past, any effort to cut off internal corporate VPNs has been enough to make a company think about closing or reducing operations in China. It’s that big a deal,” he continued.
