Default True or False? You can be the jury..........

Leaving aside the inconsistencies in the story (a 6-and-9 age gap later becomes 42-and-47), it all seems a bit unlikely to me...............

Obviously written by a drunk journo, or bullshit, but stranger things have happened!

My gran met her old next door neighbour on a flight to new zealand 60 odd years after living next door to each other, and they where sat next to each other- nattered the whole way there and stayed in touch until my grans friend passed away. The worlds a small place!

If it is true Im glad they worked it out before they copped off with each other!

weasel central is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: True or False? You can be the jury..........

some of the comments under the story are interesting....

one guy was wondering if he had a tug thinking about her before they met

i can't see how it is a good advertisement for a website basically promoting a bit of no strings sex, if there is a chance of inadvertantly humping a relative of yours

surely for her, his surname must have been mentioned.
After all it was hers until she got married and is not a common one?

The best bit of this type of thing is usually the comments from utter morons underneath. No exception here, although has someone edited out comments about potential incest?

If you had a brother called George Bentley and met a man with the exact same name, isn't it the very first thing you'd remark upon?

I want to know how or why William Hill came up with odds for that of 500 million to one.

Well it's odds really, even the infinitesimally small chance of an occurance is bound to happen to someone somewhere. But as Meow says with the chap's 1st and last name, she must have known .

I understand that but where do you pluck that figure from? Why isn't it 543 million to one.

It's just rubbish.

I don't know where they got the figure from and have no idea on its accuracy. The comment on odds was taking into consideration the population of the UK.
