What we've learned this weekend..

It's been a newsy week hasn't it, so what have we learned?

1. Cheaters never prosper...but their wives do...

One Aussie woman sold the knickers belonging to her husband's mistress on ebay saying they were so big they'd make someone a nice shawl or halloween costume. After some silly bidders apparently 'entering the wrong figure' and the bidding getting up to the realms of $24,000, the pair evenutally sold for the tidy sum of $303, and we're warned to keep our eyes peeled for her husbands Harley which she is planning to sell for a starting bid of 99 cents!

2. People get WAY too into the olympics...

Apparently there have been several home sporting injuries over the last couple of weeks where people are setting their treadmills and rowing machines to keep pace with olympians... a helpline has asked people to concentrate on exercising common sense instead and to be REALISTIC!

3. Big Foot doesn't exist - TWICE...

Hairs allegedly belonging to big foot turned out to be from some random marsupial and the corpse of bigfoot was a rubber gorilla costume in a block of ice. The ol' specialists are, I'm sure, very disappointed -and should be very embarrassed!

4. People speed...and give bad excuses...

My favourites are:

There was a strong wind behind my car which pushed me over the limit

A violent sneeze caused a chain reaction where my foot pushed down harder on the accelerator

I was in the airport’s flight path and I believe the camera was triggered by a jet overhead, not my car
