The life of a veterinarian is not all glam and glitz and cute critters — you also need to be prepared to spend much of your career with your arm up rear ends.
Eighteen-year-old Leo is the oldest of the four African lions at Crocodylus Park in Darwin, and recently his keeper Bill Stevenson noticed something was not right.
Key points:
  • Leo the lion went off his food and the vets were called in to perform an enema
  • The vet had to put his hand down Leo's throat to administer anaesthetic
  • A vet with smaller hands was called in to complete the job at the other end

Grand Lodge logs off social media after freemasons overshare secrets

The Grand Lodge of Scotland’s website may sell accessories but the group strives to retain a level of secrecy, something that its members failed to uphold on its social media page.

The Grand Lodge of Scotland has abandoned social media over fears that jealously guarded secrets are being leaked online.

The country’s freemasons began an unprecedented publicity drive four years ago to reverse a fall in membership. The lodge hoped that Twitter and Facebook would improve the standing of the all-male fraternal organisation, whose former members included George VI, Robert Burns and Arthur Conan Doyle.

It has since suspended its social media accounts after confidential internal information and spats between members appeared on the internet. The lodge also had problems with images of its members being posted publicly without their permission.

Robert Cooper, the curator of the lodge’s library and museum, who also edits its Twitter and Facebook pages, confirmed that the pages had been put…

Just got off the phone.....unsolicited call....here is how it went.

(Caller) Hello, can I speak to Mr @@@@ please?

(Me) Speaking

(Caller) Oh hello Mr @@@@ my name is (unclear) and I am calling from (even more unclear) limited about the accident you were involved in recently.

(Me) What accident?

(Caller) The road traffic accident..... I was....

(Me) I am starting to get a little concerned now, you are now the third company that has called me about an accident I haven't actually had yet SO either you guys know something I don't ORRRR you have some scam going on where you hope to make money on some accident where the innocent party didn't get paid on the deal?.....can't be having that in your game can we?

(Caller) ....so you haven't been involved in an accident?.... on our records....

(Me) Well listen, if I'm going to be involved in some insurance hoist let's make it worth our while. Just send me your address of your offices. I will tamper with my breaks after having my car serviced on Friday then I'll come smashing into your place of work causing as much damage as possible. As well as the multiple claims for physical damages you could probably get a good PTSD claim in as well....all that time off work, no more agro, no more tears.....

(Caller)..... (laughs).....(hangs up)

Hey @Lisa I hope you've received the Christmas present I sent you. I think this is just down your street, what with how high and mighty you are most of the time I felt you needed something that brings you down to earth a little bit.

I've posted this short instructional video as to how you best use it. Please post a video of your first flight won't you?


P.s. I'll get you the safety helmet and brake parachute next Christmas.

......don't thank me, it's the least I could do.
