    Hubbers are here from all over the world. We share our views on relationships and culture in our countries but what about the news? Feel free to tell what's been going on in your country, state, district, wherever. No topic is out of bounds.

        You'll have more privacy too. Good luck with that.

        I think you'll still have to cut the grass though... smile

      Lots of freaks, cannibals, tweakers in the news lately. Makes me not want to leave the house. Just today i took my nephews to the part, and there was some freakshow high on drugs or something. Scary world.

      He mailed body parts! yikes I hope they find him fast. Do they have any idea who the "mailed man" was?

        I think they have identified him but are not saying. The guy is all over the net; he even wrote a blog on Digital Journal on how to disappear. He's vowed to kill again and is definitely a real psycho. Hopefully, they get him soon.

          And, they are scouring the mail service for the remaining packages -- I believe they said that there are four more to be found.  hmm   Did you see his photo?  They have it up all over the news last night and this morning.  There's a lot of buzz about it here in the Nation's Capital.


          There is talk about installing water meters on country wells.  Yeah.  I thought that water in the ground is free, but the city is trying to tax the water in their municipality -- doesn't matter if it comes from the tap or out of the ground on your property.  hmm  I knew that water will one day be an issue, but seriously?!?

            The only absolutely free thing left in the world is air (probably because they haven't figured out how to tax that yet) but taxing water! >.< That hurts

          It really does sound as if he's a psycho. I haven't seen his photo Beth but I will check the int news and see. Especially since they are expanding their search of him.

    Some homeless guy ate the face off another homeless man down here in Florida. I'm pretty sure it's been in news all over the world, though. Weird stuff.

    If our alligators and heat don't kill you, our homeless people will.

      I heard about that news. Some people are thinking its the start of the zombie apocalypse.
      I think I'd rather take my chances with the heat and alligators. At least I can take precautions against those. A few homeless people can be scary enough without having to worry about them being so hungry they'll eat my face.  yikes

      For real! That story is still kinda freaking me out. My 8-year-old granddaughter said, "I'm never going to Miami again! Somebody might eat my face off!" And to think how much she enjoyed her last visit to South Beach...

        Yeah, I'm a firm believer in zombies so I'm less afraid of face eating hobos and more afraid of face eating zombie hobos lol

        Someone posted the photos of the guy who had his face eaten off -- oh man, I'm never eating pasta ever again. I can tell you that. They weren't kidding when they said he only had his goatee left.

        Now's a good time for me to start stockin' up on guns, I guess. I've never been more happy to have the 2nd amendment.

          big_smile Are you serious!? I need to find that photo.

          I don't believe in zombies. Come to think of it, its more cannibalistic than apocalyptic.

            Exactly, with everything about zombies these days of course mentally ill people are going to think they are zombies.

              I take offense to that! lol

              While I'm not exactly on the "dead rising from their graves" zombie bandwagon, I am definitely on the "virus that makes people turn into rabid animals wanting to tear people apart" as in 28 days later. I mean hey, if scientist's have been able to bring back dead animals (albeit menial stuff, like mice for moments), then I can only imagine what will happen in the future.

              Either way, I'll be prepared smile

                Naw.. hmm All this fear is just the effect of our over-active imagination. I think the likelihood of a virus like that ever being made is a long shot,

    The government has announced the budget and the taxes theat they are planning to impose are driving Jamaicans even further up the wall. They say they are planning to tax incoming international calls.

    Is that even legal? Doesn't that mean foreigners will be the ones paying that tax?

    The word from the underground fox den is that humans are detrimental to themselves and to the entire animal kingdom.  An overthrow has been suggested.
