   This week, we’re going to ‘do that Santa thing’ and find out who’s really naughty or nice. So, for something a little different, the questions can be applied to one of two subjects.   If you’re feeling naughty, apply the five questions to “Sexual Favours” If you’re feeling nice (or perhaps shy, awww, so sweet !), apply them to “Christmas Gifts” (If you’re feeling something in-between, good for you, you well-adjusted little possum, you !. You can an...

 According to ABC Science Online Australia, the heat generated by a laptop warming the scrotum may affect sperm production, potentially creating a generation of men with fertility problems. Judy Skatssoon from ABC says that a study by U.S. researchers in the journal ‘Human Reproduction’ found that laptops increased the temperature of the scrotum by almost 3°C. According to Skatssoon, Professor Yefim Sheynkin of the State University of New York says that repeated, long-term ex...

 According to Gustavo Arellano at the Orange County weekly, “For decades, the Catholic Diocese of Orange allowed child-raping priests to roam its parishes. For years, it covered up those crimes. For months, it stonewalled victims seeking justice”. “Now the second-largest Catholic diocese west of the Mississippi is on the cusp of achieving victory in its notorious sex-abuse scandal”. Arellano writes that “At press time, sources told the Weekly the Orange diocese will agree this wee...

  In November 2004, just three days before her 57th birthday, New York woman Aleta St. James gave birth three weeks prematurely to twin babies, a boy and a girl, by planned Caesarian section. Using an egg from a stranger and donated sperm, this was the first pregnancy for the unmarried St. James, who said of giving birth at her age “It is never too late. You are never too old. It is just in your mind."   St. James, a motivational speaker and ‘healer’, reportedly paid mor...

 It’s in Norway.   There is a town in Norway named ‘Hell’.   The roads to Hell are not paved with good intentions. Just plain old bitumen.  Contrary to popular belief, return tickets are available.  Interestingly enough, there are cold days in Hell.   Occasionally, Hell even freezes over !.  (But that of course means a major improvement in chance for the proverbial snowball).  If you would like to go to Hell, you will fin...

(This was forwarded to me recently, but I don't have the original source)  If you receive an e-mail entitled "Oh, I'm A Naughty Little Virus", whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN IT !!!. It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, it will also permanently delete anything within 20 feet of your computer. Even you. It scratches your CD's, programs your phone to auto-dial sex chat hotlines, and mixes antifreeze into your fish tank.  IT WILL FLUSH YOUR TOILET WHILE Y...

 The majority of us have some vague idea what will organically occur after our demise, but the rest of it seems to be a bit of a no-no, conversation wise. I know this is a strange question, but have you ever given any thought to what will become of your remains when you die ?.  Chances are, even if you have given it careful thought, based on typical western thinking, you will have arrived at one of two conclusions: burial or cremation. To be honest, I find neither appealing. (Alth...

The ‘Aussie’ weather barometer is cheap, easy to use, and works in all weather. They are located as ‘curiosities’ at various Australian tourist towns, and oddly enough, some visitors actually seem to take them seriously. They consist of a board with a piece of string nailed to it.  (Yes, I’m afraid that’s it).  Underneath the string, however,  are the following instructions:   STRING IS WET   ~   IT’S RAINING STRING IS DRY&nbs...

 If you have ever been in a romantic relationship of any type or duration, you’ll doubtless also have been the recipient or initiator of the (heinously embarrassing) 4am-drunken ‘but I still love you !’ phone call from/to a person you possibly called a vomitous cretin last time you spoke to them sober. Telephone calls made whilst drunk rarely have a satisfactory outcome. This is possibly due to the fact that drunken people can tend to be somewhat more free with their emotions. Propped ...

 Of the many things that astonish me about modern ‘love’, the one that gets me the most is the ability of a diamond engagement ring to turn a nice, everyday woman into the-bitch-bride-from-hell. I’ve been a bridesmaid on numerous occasions, and, without exception, as I clutched a damp tissue and waved goodbye to the bride and her brand new groom as they departed for their exotic honeymoon, I have thought exactly the same thing: “I’m so glad you’re leaving the country for a few weeks, Y...

 I used to work with a fellow who had a younger sister with cerebral palsy. He often spoke with pride of her high intelligence and academic achievements, and also of her occasionally mischievous nature. I remember one occasion when he told me, with some excitement, that she had been chosen to be interviewed by a journalist from a major magazine on behalf of the students at her university. The day of the interview came, and he waited for her phone call to be collected from the maga...

 The modern world is advancing, and with that advancement comes such looming horrors as ‘chemical weapons’ and ‘biological warfare’. These ‘modern’ ideas of ours surely have reached the  outer limits of the awful things we humans are capable of. We have come full circle.  We have developed chemical weapons, that, once released, cannot be detected or controlled, and we have developed conflicts that almost guarantee their eventual use.  Modern day scientists have been fighting ...

Okay, so we don't have 'Turkey Day' in Australia, but in honour of your fine tradition, I thought we could give thanks to our fellow bloggers.  There are members of this community - some well known, some not so well-known, some established 'regulars', some less prolific posters - who deserve to be thanked for their efforts in making JU a nicer place to be. So, feel free to name any blogger who has inspired you in any way, and give them a big 'thankyou' boost. They deserve it....
