Let's say...A person is asleep in bed in the middle of the night and suddenly, this person is awakened by noise. Knowing that there are only two people in the house with the other person in the same bed, it becomes obvious that this could be a break in with the perp still downstairs. Let's say... The "perp" decides to check around the house and enters the bedroom where the two people have prepared for this eventuality because the interloper is about to be hit with the leg of a night table after which he will be taken away by the police.

While this may appear as a far-fetched idea, it seems that a company in London, England has created a night table that converts into a weapon when needed. In the words of the creator: 'The 'Safe Bedside Table' has a removable leg that acts as a club and a top that doubles as a shield-defence.' Kind of like a knight in days of yore.

"Stand back foul intruder or I shall smite you with the leg of my night table!"

Statistically, it's reported that 50% of people in London are worried about security while they sleep. Perhaps installing an alarm system would be safer. The night table/weapon can be found at:


Seems the residents of Bexley Village in England have a problem that's got them all P.O.'d in the true sense of the word. They are upset over the fact that people are using the streets - gasp! - to empty their bladder. To deal with this socially unacceptable problem a law was enacted whereby those caught peeing will have the option of putting out an £80 fine or handed a pail of water to clean it up.

Pub owners are working with the police and have promised to provide hot water and materials to clean up the pee.
