Do You Love All Of Me?

I don't know if this story is touching or worrying.

A truck driver in China suffered a serious crash while driving and was trapped in the vehicle. Firefighters arrived and they said they might have to cut his leg off to get him out but the driver said, "Hang on..."

So far so good. No one would say, "Yep. Deffo. Now!" At the very least we'd all say, "Are you sure you have to because I own a lot of shoes and I hate waste..."

The odd thing is the reason he made the firefighters wait. He wanted to call his wife to see if she would still love him if he only had one leg? I don't think he framed that question correctly. It's not, "Will you still love me if I only have one leg?" The real question is, "Would you rather I only had one leg or had a lorry on my foot for the rest of my life?" If they only live in a small flat that'd be a key factor.

35-year-old Kong Huang made the call and asked: "Precious one, I have just one question which you must answer truthfully. I am hurt and may have to lose a limb. My question is: 'Will you still love me with one leg?'"

His 29-year-old missus, Cheng, responded to the guilt trip by saying she would still love him. Fortunately the firefighters didn't actually have to remove his leg. They probably felt sorry for him as he'd already lost a pair when he got married. I mean, really, some men have to call home to get permission before they go for a night out but he had to do it before he could receive lifesaving treatment.

Anyway, he said: "I was doubly blessed this day. I got the love of my wife unconditionally and I have the good fortune to return to her a whole man. I am very lucky."

You didn't need to worry so much, of course your partner would still love you if you had a leg amputated. One foot is more than enough for any woman.

Woman Has Horse In Her Car

To Germany, where a woman was stopped on the road because she was driving with a horse in her car. And suddenly all those cat ladies don't seem so strange.

23-year-old Kim Scholz had her 60cm miniature horse in the boot of her smart car and was driving down the motorway. I know this is missing the point a bit but I've always wondered if those smart cars are powerful enough to go on a motorway. I guess she found a new way to increase the horsepower.

She said: "I have actually been stopped several times by the police, but once they see that Sammy is properly secured in the back of the car and in fact that he seems to be quite enjoying it in there, they always let me carry on."

He enjoys it does he? Then why the long face? (I had to fit that one in. I always do on horse news stories.)

She added: "In the horse box it is not possible to properly secure him because he is so small. It is particularly practical for short journeys just to put him in the boot."

A vehicle with a little horse in the back, that reminds me of my days as a Tesco delivery driver.

The reason it's so small is that the horse is an Argentinian Falabella. They are one of the smallest breeds of horse in the world and grow to be about the size of a dog. No would would look twice at a dog in a car. Unless they were from the continent and thought that the passenger seat was the drivers seat and the dog was driving. Then they'd think that guides dogs in the UK are really well trained.

In fact these small horses are so intelligent that they have been used as an alternative to a guide dog for blind people. They're great for the owner but for anyone else stood far away it looks like their village is about to be attacked by a blind giant.

[Radio Podcast] Getting Old, Wine & Miley Cyrus

It was a bank holiday, so as a bank holiday special the show was exactly the same as it always is. In this episode we hear of a survey that has pinpointed the time when men turn into their own dads, and therefore we find the signs that let you know you're old. We hear from Larry and his entertainment news about Miley Cyrus being taken to hospital. And good news/bad news, wine is good for you but chocolate is more expensive.

Here's the podcast of it for you to download/listen. (Originally broadcast on Sunday 20th April 2014.)

A New Royal Baby

Another royal baby. Could it be happening? Yes it could. In as much as things that are possible could be happening. Global warming could be just about to kill us all, Greece could be about to have a closing down sale and Rihanna could be wearing clothes. You just never know.

The reason that we're all going royal baby crazy is that Prince William reportedly hinted that there may already be a bun in Kate's carb-free oven when he was visiting New Zealand. Shawl-maker Geordie Cynthia Read had made a shawl for little baby George. When she handed it to William he is reported as saying: "You might have to make another one soon."

Boom! The world implodes. Front pages of national newspapers spring into action because they think he means there'll be another baby. But hold on. It could mean that he thinks the workmanship on that shawl is terrible. "You might have to make another one soon... because this looks like it'll last a week. What are you, a one-woman Primark?"

Maybe he liked the shawl and wanted one for himself. Or possibly he is a sensible man and wanted a spare. You can never have too many shawls.

Cynthia said: "The way William said it was like he was dropping a hint, letting me in on a secret." Yeah, that makes sense. A shawl-maker is like a bartender, they're the person you tell your secrets too... at a public event... where there's press.

Thinking about that next shawl she added: "Obviously if I'm asked to do another one, I would be honoured – but we'll wait and see." Yes, wait and see before you start making a shawl. Put it on the front page of a national newspaper, put the story in the news archive forever, all off the back of one comment, but don't rush into making another shawl. That would be silly.

Living On Beer

Giving up things for Lent is a tradition. This year I gave up sugar. It's OK, I just go to a different stripper instead.

The trouble with giving up things for Lent is that they tend to be the things we enjoy (see earlier comment about strippers). But a man in Canada proves a good point, you could just give up the things you don't like.

Yes, a man in Canada has decided to give up solid food for Lent and is only living off beer. Just beer. It's a great diet. He's already lost seven days.

Chris Schryer, 33 (although soon he'll probably look 50), has sworn off solids food in favour of just having ale. It's a diet you can live off, at least I did when I was a student. Chris said: "Without being dramatic, it definitely is not fun; it’s challenging. Every meal time there’s challenge." And let me guess, that challenge is fighting the urge to get a kebab after.

But this project isn't just about getting drunk everyday, you can do that without Lent. In fact if you just want to drink and not eat go and be a rock star. Chris is doing this for what he called spiritual reasons. So there are ales and spirits in this. The wines must be feeling left out.

I think he has a great idea. Recently we heard in the news how we should all be eating 7-a-day when it comes to vegetables and doing do lowers your risk of an early death by 42%. We have a pension crisis because people are living too long. So if we all eat that veg the situation will get worse. But if this beer diet catches on we'll all peg it early and the economy will be saved.

Saharan Smog Hits UK

Just when we have recovered from floods in the UK, that's when we're attacked by our own water supply, the air in the south of England is trying to kill us.

Thankfully it doesn't bother me, I try not to breathe too much anyway. But thanks to pollution from Europe and sand from the Sahara our air is dangerous. Typical. Dust particles from abroad, coming over here, doing the jobs of our particles, etc, etc.

Some news sites covered the story by asking, "Did you find red dirt on your car this morning?" They haven't seen my car or they wouldn't bother asking. Yes, there's dirt on it every morning and of all different colours. My car looks like it was decorated at the Alum Bay gift shop on the Isle of Wight. (There's a niche reference.)

The advice has been to stay indoors and avoid doing any strenuous exercise. Or as I call it, "Carry on as normal." But some people who have gone out into it tried to stay healthy by wearing those strange looking face masks to filter out the dust. If you have been wearing those and not doing the Bane from Batman voice you have wasted your time.

I've decided not to hide from it, so today I was out in the European pollution and the Saharan dust, mainly because that's the closest thing to a holiday I have had in years. It wasn't too bad. When I first left the house I thought, "Wow! The air is bad bad you can actually see it." And then I cleaned my glasses.

So don't shy from it, get out there and collect as much sand from your car as you can. Bag it up. We'll need it the next time we have floods.
