    Worlds Oldest Living Dog Dies.

    RIP Pusuke:hug: THE world's oldest living dog - a male crossbreed named Pusuke - has died in Japan, aged 26 years and nine months. Pusuke died peacefully at home after his owner returned from running errands, according to Kyodo news. He was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's oldest living dog. His owner said he was healthy and active until Monday, when he began to struggle for breath. "I think [Pusuke] waited for me to come home," his owner told Kyodo of the dog's death. Pusuke died two years and eight months shy of the record for the oldest dog to have ever lived, a title held by Bluey - an Australian cattle dog who died in 1939 aged 29 years and five months, ABC News reported.

    Worlds most breathtaking platforms

    PULPIT ROCK, NORWAY Sometimes it’s best to leave it to nature. While glass floors and skyscrapers can be impressive, in Norway it’s a mighty lump of stone that offers the best outlook. Preikestolen – Pulpit Rock – looms 604m above Lysefjord, one of myriad incisions along Norway’s west coast. There are mountains aplenty hereabouts, but this summit seems built for purpose: its almost perfectly flat top juts out over the water (no safety barriers here), commanding uninterrupted if vertiginous views. Scarier still, peer down the cracks in Preikestolen’s surface – caused by 10,000 years of glacial action – and hope no new ones form just then…

    Worlds Deadliest Animals

    Here is a list of the worlds dangerous animals. While their brightly coloured bodies might look attractive, their backs ooze a slimy neurotoxin that is meant to keep predators away. Each frog produces enough of the stuff to kill 10 humans. Where: Poison dart frogs like the humid, tropical environments of Central and Latin America. They tend to be found in tropical rainforests and sometimes freshwater marshes, lakes and swamps.

    Worlds Largest Family

    Meet the world’s largest family.:swoon::swoon::swoon: If you’ve ever worried about having enough room for a growing brood, spare a thought for Ziona Chana. He has 39 wives, 94 children, 14 daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren living under the same roof. Home is a 100-room, four-storey house set in the hills of the village of Baktawng in the Indian state of Mizoram. Even then, some of his wives sleep top-to-tail in communal dormitories. But Ziona doesn’t appear fazed by the size of his apparently happy family - and doesn’t claim any benefits for their upkeep.

    Worlds most stunning Waterfalls

    Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe The locals got it spot on when they were naming these falls calling them Mosi-oa-Tunya – "the smoke that thunders". Monstrously loud, the Zambezi River plunges 108m into the gorge below – over 12,000 cubic metres per second at its heaviest flow.. See them from above, from below, from Knife Edge Point, from the Devil's Pool and from Cataract View, at sunrise and by moonlight - just make sure you see them.

    Worlds Largest Chocolate Bar

    12,290 pound chocolate bar they created to set a new Guinness World Record Chocoholics should book themselves tickets to Chicage pronto – because it is currently home*to the world’s biggest chocolate bar. Well, until it gets a good nibbling... The World's Finest Chocolate company has broken the Guinness World Record with a sweet treat weighing 12,000 pounds, measuring 3 feet high and 21 feet long. Sweet! It is thought that this gooey effort has broken the previous record-breaking choc bar by a ton. And the recipe certainly*contains more ingredients than can be*squeezed into the average mixing bowl too, with 1,200 pounds of almonds, 5,500 pounds of sugar, 2,000 pounds of milk powder, 1,700 pounds of cocoa butter and 1,400 pounds of chocolate liquor all included. Despite the mammoth proportions, the vast bar was made to illustrate 'portion distortion' to school children. A spokesman for the company said: “We purposely made this bar to be an example of ‘portion distortion’. “We're committed to educating families about eating right and staying active and doing it in a fun and engaging way.” Of course. And a very worthy campaign... but... Anyone else hungry? It'd be a crime to let it go to waste...
  8. The average floor area of a new free-standing house in Australia is 243 square metres. In the US, house sizes shrank over the last three years to 222 square metres and in Denmark they are 137 square meters, the biggest homes in Europe, according to Bureau of Statistics and other data compiled for Commonwealth Securities. But the average size of the Australian family home, after increasing by 40 per cent in the past 20 years, might have reached a peak. NSW still has the biggest houses in the country. Victoria's were fourth largest at 246 square metres after the Northern Territory and Queensland.
  9. My OH has been working away from home for quite a while now and one side effect of this is I don't really socialise as much as I used to..........or have people around for a bbq as much.It is just not the same with him away[especially the food, he is a chef]. So rather than become a recluse I have decided to organise one big whopper of a bbq right here on PIO.[maybe the worlds biggest???] All are welcome to attend.......all you need to do is bring a plate and a few scoops. The only catch is you cannot bring the exact same dish or drink as someone else. I will set things off by bringing some Whiskey Grilled Pork Ribs and a fine big bottle of 90% proof Irish Poitin[moonshine].That should get the craic goin'. What will you bring to the party?

    Worlds Most Annoying Sayings

    This isn't meant to be a 'whinging' post, some of it may come over that way, but it is also hopefully meant to raise a laugh. So here are my list of the most annoying sayings of all time. 1. 'Plenty more fish in the sea'. Normally said after you have gone through a marriage/relationship break up and there you are with your box of Kleenex, bottle of anti depressants wishing the world would just go away. 2. 'I know exactly how you feel'. Normally said after you have experienced something that the other person has NO idea about. 3. 'But really it is three o'clock'. Normally said by someone a WEEK after the clocks have gone forward or backwards. 4. 'It's a really good ending........'. Said just as you are really getting into the film. 5. 'Your call is important to us'. No, it's not, otherwise you would have answered a lot bloody quicker. 6. 'Ohhhhhh, Australia, why the hell did you come back to this sh7thole'. No comment 7. 'Sorry, I can't remember which pump number it was. It's that little red car in the corner, behind the blue car, next to the white one.' LOOK at the pump number before paying. 8. 'OH, lets sit here'. The WHOLE cinema is empty but you choose to sit directly in front of me, with your cap on, eating bloody popcorn. Must be a herding instinct. 9. 'Hang on a minute. I've got a far easier route than that'. After weeks of planning and AA road directions a member of family still insists that their way is quicker and better. 10. 'I'm sure that one or two won't hurt'. Family feeding monkeys buns at zoo after the sign says not to, then they wonder why the monkey in question tries to rip your arm off trying to get to said buns. Feel free to add more. Cheers Tony:wink:
