After hours at the morgue would be creepy...I don't think I could do it.

There's a seriously creepy story behind this, but I'll tell it another time.

When I was working the morgue was a small building separate from the lab, but the police had to attend coroners PMs, and it was common for new PC to be pranked. The favourite one was to tell the new PC to get on one of the trollies and be pushed into the morgue fridge as if he was a body, then when then door was opened he would jump out and shout suprise!. Well he got on one of the trollies and was pushed in. Now it's pitch black in there, and he hadn't been in more than a couple of monutes when a voice from the trolley next to him said 'It's a bit Bl**dy cold in here' result one PC shouting to be let out. He got of the trolly to find all his colleagues killing themselves laughing, then the PC got of the trolly next to him, where he had been placed before they came in. Was apparently a rite of passage for all new coroners PCs.

Who would of thought so much training was needed to fill soda cups, and to think now chains (well pre-covid) let customers even do it without any training....

I am wondering what Karla is on by asking this question to a 7 year old



https://www.dailystar.co.uk/real-lif...-olds-22765621

Perhaps the 7 year old should tell Karla to go and blank 3 words to be inserted and tell Karla I know how to buy a chocolate bar for my mums birthday

The more of these articles that show up, the more condos seem like they are simply a pain, especially when the strata board chooses to do nothing, and residents are forced to sue to get repairs done.

Residents of this building have 60 days to secure the financing, ranging from 100,000 to 150,000 per unit for repairs, a judge has ordered.

The rolls used in Subway's hot sandwiches contain too much sugar to be considered bread, according to Ireland's Supreme Court.

Ireland's highest court made the ruling in a case about how the bread is taxed.

An Irish franchisee of the US company had claimed it should not pay VAT on the rolls it uses in heated sandwiches.

But the court ruled that because of the level of sugar in the rolls they cannot be taxed as bread, which is classed as a "staple product" with zero VAT.

One dead other injured after a dam's spillway gate opened unexpectedly during maintenance.

Swift water rescue technicians were deployed to help rescue people trapped by the sudden release of water.between 1:15 p.m. and 2:00 p.m the water rose almost 12 feet.

A leisurely day along the banks of a river can without warning become deadly.

But isn't he made out of plastic ?

Good theory. Given how many others have it then somewhat surprising.

I don't know how he could avoid it considering everyone around him is testing positive.

Wouldn't that be something if both got it, and both became incapacitated and unable to perform their duties.
