Strange News #1

Just when you thought it was safe…

Just when you thought there was noone stranger…

A Pennsylvania woman claims she has a very satisfying sexual relationship … with an amusement park ride. 

Do you really love ME or just that queasy feeling I give you in your stomach? Good vibrations 

Amy Wolfe says she loves 1001 Nachts so much that she plans to marry it, Metro reports. 

The “Magic Carpet”-themed ride is located at Knoebels Amusement Park in Elysburg, but the 33-year-old says she manages to ride the machine at least 300 times a year, even though she lives 80 miles away. 

When she can’t share the ups and downs of life with her lover, she uses pictures of it to satisfy herself at home.

Wolfe suffers from OS (objectum sexual), a condition where people develop sexual feelings toward objects.

She also has had relationships with spaceship models, the World Trade Center, a church organ and a banister railing. 

You might suffer from this condition if your last name is Models-Center-Organ-Railing-Ride.

Silly polygamist.

We go to Disney World a lot, and I don’t believe my wife has this problem at all.  What is up with people in this day, and age.  Worst part is that when they close the ride, or take it down she will probably try to sue for Alimony, or something…  ROFLMAO!

Convenience Store Registers

Have you ever gone into a convenience store, and had nothing but problems at checkout?  The other day I went into 7-Eleven, and the POS systems were all having an issue.  The keyboards weren’t working, and the scanners weren’t operating correct either.

Every business that has a register needs to make sure that it works 100% at all times.  I don’t think that it looks to professional for a register to be inoperable at times that it is needed.

I have seen some real elaborate systems in my time, and the ones at most of the convenience store just go to tell me that they must be making some good money to be able to afford them.

I was contacted about Shoprites Partners in Caring, which is a program that in the past 10 years has donated $2 million dollars a year, totalling $20 million dollars.  This year the want to increase the awareness, and have created Bloggers in Caring, which I was asked if I wanted to participate in.

In my family we try not to take food for granted.  We have all worked hard to not waste at any point.

To help start off the initiative General Mills, and Shoprite will donate 1 box of cereal for the first 30 comments on this posting.
