OMG A GHOST

The other day I was looking at various pictures and videos i’d taken over the weekend. One was of James and Mark doing some song on Singstar, when WHATTHEFUCKISTHAT.

I don’t believe in ghosts or the paranormal, i’m a total skeptic, but seriously, what. the. fuck. was. that.

I saw a face. I’m sure I saw a face.

I put it on YouTube to see if anyone could give me logical, rational explanation for this scary.

The best comment left on Facebook was: “Someone is smoking near the camera”. Then I remembered, I was totally having a fag at the time.

My iPhone

2 weeks ago I woke up and my first thought was “i’m going to buy an iPhone today.”

Obviously, the fact that I am a poorly paid slave worker didn’t cross my mind. The man in Carphone Warehouse put up with me as I barked orders at him, pissed off that I was spending money on something that I really wanted but couldn’t really afford. Man, if you’re out there, i’m sorry. You were quite hot and under different circumstances things could have been better between us.

Anyway.  Here is a list of goods and bads about my shiney ring ring.

Goods

  • I have free texts. Well, I say free. I have to pay for the courtesy. Apparently they’re unlimited, but according to the “fair usage policy” the maximum is 3,000. I’m planning to excede this just to piss o2 off.
  • 1. Take picture of dog on the bed
    2. Upload to twitter
    3.???????
    4. Profit!
  • Foursquare. It’s an app where you tag where you are. The more places you go, the more points you get.  The bad side of this is that it tells me how many times i’ve been at work in the past month. Like I wasn’t as depressed by that enough already.
  • I can boast about my amazing phone whilst not mentioning the price.
  • The little vibration as you turn the silent button on. Mmmm.

Bads

  • By the time my contract is up, I will have spent the equivalent of my soul.
  • The horn i’ve got as my text sound frightens the dog and makes her run out the room.
  • Fuck you iTunes, FUCK YOU.  I LOVE YOU.
  • Look at that horse! Look at it! I want to take a picture of it! I can’t! It’s too far away and I don’t have a zoom! Wait! I have an app that lets me zoom! Imma use it! No! The zoom is digital! Horse is nothing but pixels! PIXEL HORSE!!
  • It’s an Apple product. But that’s okay. I’ve never said “it just works” or “did you know there are no known viruses?” or “i’m still a virgin”.

Finally we are progressing!

Early this year I wrote a blog entry about the state of Sex Education in British schools, and how for some reason, we had not adopted the Dutch method of teaching it young, which clearly showed results with a low teenage pregnancy rate.

Good news, it was announced today that the British government has finally seen sense and have decided to follow their lead. From now on school pupils from age 5 to 18 will be taught lessons about “personal, social and health matters including sex and relationships”.

Obviously there has been problems with bringing this legislation into power, mainly the fact that the British public will not open their eyes to the fact that things need to change. Despite the fact that evidence is thrust in front of them, they do not agree that the method used by other countries actually works.

The BBC article above states that in a UK-wide poll conducted this year “64% [of those questioned] believed lessons should not start until children are at least 11 years old. Just over a third (36%) said they did not think children should learn about contraception until they were at least 13.”
How is that going to help when the age of young girls having sex is getting lower and lower all the time? Just the other day I was reading an article about a 13 year old girl (who lives in the UK) who has had four sexual partners in less than a year. Surely this is an insight into how the lives of young British girls are changing, and the Sex Education we teach needs to reflect that.

At the time of writing, the UK has the worst teenage pregnancy rate in Europe, with 27 out of 1,000 births being to a 15-19 year old. Figures released earlier this year showed that the number of girls in the UK under the age of sixteen having abortions has raised a whole 10% from just last year.

Hopefully the fact that Britain has actually taken action will change this fact, and this time next year we will be looking at lower rates of teen pregnancy.
