UK web address link to online suicide plot

An internet surfer accused of planning a bizarre Valentine's Day mass suicide used a British chat room to recruit willing victims, says a report in today's Sunday Times.

[via Nzyme's post at Tursiops Times who admits she has never had a nice Valentine's Day. Nzyme describes herself as a 34-year old SBM (single black mother) in Texas who works full-time as a technical support representative, adores her family and dolphins, wants love and needs a nice family life]

So, Nzyme needs a valentine. Heh. Let's see what we bloggers can do to help. [Sorry Nzyme, but I found your blog after you kindly linked to mine at Sudan Watch. Your recent posts left me feeling I ought to try and help here!] Here's pinging American blogger Bill in Germany to see if he knows of any suitable unattached boyz.

Note to any unattached readers: please let me know your URL (or someone's you know) in the comments here or by email, and I will read the blog and find something within it to link to here tomorrow as an electronic card on Valentine's Day. It's no trouble. There is not much else I can do tomorrow except play cupid and it won't be fun if I've got nobody to play cupid with.

Love's not only blind but mad, say scientists

On reading this little sweetie of a post, it looks like American law student John at Secession in New York may have met someone special - if the post is not a figment of his imagination or an extract from a book.

John is a great romantic and likes to tease his readers, I think. I am never quite sure whether his posts are true or not. Going by his writings and the quality of his posts, you'd never believe he is only in his twenties. Great style, flair and a wonderful writer. I marvel that he is not older than he says and am convinced, because the pen can be mightier than the sword, he will make a monster lawyer, or professional writer, or both.

An article in today's Sunday Times says love makes you go mad and affects your concentration. Poor John. He is in the midst of taking his bar exam. Here is an excerpt from the article:

People who feel compelled to behave irrationally on Valentine's Day tomorrow may not entirely be to blame for their actions. Scientists have found evidence that love really is blind. Hodson says: “I would advise people to enjoy their love affair knowing that this isn’t going to happen more than two or three times in a lifetime but they should realise it is akin to being mad. You become deranged and lose your ability to reason." Heh. Happy Valentine's Day John.

Boy is aborted 3 times and lives

On Valentine's Day, if you can't be good, be careful, someone I once knew was fond of saying.

You have to wonder what one boy will think when he grows up and maybe reads this article from today's Sunday Times. Here is an excerpt:

A baby survived at least three attempts to abort it from the womb and was born alive at 24 weeks old. The boy was delivered in hospital after his 24-year-old mother changed her mind about wanting the child after feeling it move on the way home from an abortion clinic. Although the clinic had told her an ultrasound scan had confirmed the child was dead, she went into labour that afternoon and the boy was born alive. Now two years old and healthy, he is the first long-term abortion survivor to have been born so prematurely. His remarkable entrance into the world is documented in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
