The World’s Oldest Bartender

Dolly Saville is the world’s oldest bartender at 100. The London great-great grandmother works three days a week at The Red Lion Hotel. She has been serving since 1940.  Dolly tells Orange UK dolly_saville__rexthat she has poured over 2 million pints of beer. “I love my work and I love the people, it keeps me going and it’s better than sitting around. I never thought I would be here this long, but I’ve loved every minute of it. My family keeps asking if I want to stop, but I have no plans to retire. My boss is lovely and if he asked me to work an extra shift I would say yes as he has been so kind to me.”

What Does Your Special Someone’s Celebrity Crushes Say About Them?

A Nerve website post in which a couple debated each other’s celebrity crushes grabbed the attention of Jezebel writer who liked the idea, saying, “In a good solid relationship where trust is real and attraction is secure and known, this can be a hilarious exercise in getting to know another person, to say nothing of gathering potentially a life’s worth of good jabs . . . ” But she goes deeper, writing: “What do our celebrity crushes say about us or our significant others? Do they mean anything? Are they indicative of ‘types’ we have, unfulfilled longing, secret fantasies, or just a random selection from the buffet of celebrities paraded in front of us, because we can? I submit they are a way of talking through every facet of ourselves and our needs and outsourcing what cannot be possibly met by any one person . . . ”

 

Water Allergies?

Londoner Barbara Ward is allergic to water. She has aquagenic urticarial which affects one in every 230 million people.
Ward tells the Daily Mail that she can’t exercise because of Glass-of-Water-1-1sweat or use tap water. ”I’m not like other moms, I can’t even run around with my kids or play with them because the sweat could send me into shock. Family get togethers are off the cards and I can’t ever go out for a meal or go to the pub for a pint. Other people’s perfume can set me off so going out in public is really dangerous too. It sounds so unbelievable, but I have to live like this. Whenever I drank water my throat would close up and I’d be really wheezy. A sip of tap water can make me have wheezing and angioedema of the throat. My only guess is that it must be down to the chemicals they pump into the water supply.”

Nebraska Parade’s ‘Obama Presidential Library’ Outhouse Float Slammed

A float that appeared in Norfolk, Nebraska’s Independence Day parade that depicted President Obama‘s future presidential library as an outhouse is being slammed as racist as disrespectful to the presidency. The float showed a zombie-looking Obama dummy in overalls standing in front of an outhouse with the words “Obama Presidential Library” on the side. The Lincoln Star Journal said parade organizers defended the float, saying it got the biggest cheers of the day and comparing it to a political cartoon. Parade committee member Rick Konopasek told the newspaper, “We don’t feel it’s right to tell someone what they can and can’t express. This was political satire. If we start saying no to certain floats, we might as well not have a parade at all.”

 

 

The World’s Largest Waterslide is Safe

The world’s tallest waterslide was given a test run by two of its creators. The Verrukt, which means “go insane”, was tested to prove that it is safe. The slide was set to open Memorial Day at Kansas City Schlitterbahn Water Park, but was postponed after safety concerns. Two of the slide’s architects posted a video of themselves on the 168-foot ride. (Daily Dot)
