Linda Wolfe – Most Married Woman

American grandmother Linda Wolfe has become “the most married woman in the world” after walking down the aisle 23 times, and is now “on the lookout for number 24”.

Mrs Wolfe, 68, is included in the Guinness Book of World Records for the dubious honour of being wed more times than anyone else alive. She has said that she is “addicted to the romance” of getting married.

Born Linda Lou Taylor, the American first married in 1957 aged 16, to a 31-year-old called George Scott. The union lasted for seven years, the longest and happiest of any of her marriages. Since then things have tended to go downhill. Over the subsequent decades she married a one-eyed convict, a preacher, barmen, plumbers and musicians.

Two turned out to be homosexual, two were homeless and one beat her. Another put a padlock on her fridge.
One marriage lasted just 36 hours because “the love wasn’t there”. But Linda, from Indiana, once married the same man, Jack Gourley, three times. She has had seven children by her different husbands and been a stepmother to many more.

Her last marriage, a decade ago, was a publicity stunt. It was to Glynn Wolfe, who in taking Linda as his bride meant he was the world’s most married man, at 29 times. He died a year later aged 88. Consequently she said that she was “on the lookout for number 24”.

She told The Sun: “It’s been years since I walked down the aisle. I miss it.” The serial bride, who now lives in a retirement home, said she had never cheated on a husband. She said if she had her life over again she would “never, ever” marry so many men.

Longest Ear Hair Record Holder

A man in northern India has been recognized by Guinness World Records as having the world’s longest ear hair.

The tufts coming out of the man’s ears measured more than 5 inches when he set the record in 2003. The hair has now grown to nearly 10 inches. In fact, the hair is so long he has to shampoo and comb it. He was granted a certificate from Guinness to certify him as the record-holder.

However, he complained that too many people consider his feat foolish and said the Indian government isn’t treating him with the respect he deserves as a world record-holder.

Evolution of the word SHIT

In the 16th and 17th centuries, before commercial fertilizer was invented, large shipments of manure were transported by ship. It was shipped in dry bundles because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet-but once water hit it at sea, it not only became heavier, but when the process of fermentation began, a byproduct which is methane gas was formed. It didn’t take long for methane to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOOM!

Several ships were destroyed in this manner before somebody figured out what was happening. Once they
determined the role that manure played in the explosions,

Everybody began stamping the bundles with the term “Ship High In Transit”, so that the sailors would
know to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not
touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.!

Thus evolved the term “S.H.I.T,” which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very
day. You probably did not know the true history of this word. Neither did I.

DEATHS THAT MADE EVEN TOP DOCTORS WONDER…

This case happened in a hospital’s Intensive care ward where Patients always died in the same bed and on all Sunday morning at 11a.m, regardless of their medical condition.

This puzzled the doctors and some even thought that it had something to do with the supernatural.

No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths took place at 11 AM.

So a world-wide expert team was constituted a! nd they decided to go down to the ward to investigate the cause of the incidents.

So on the next Sunday morning few minutes before 11 a.m. all doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off evil……..Just when the! clock struck 11…

The part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system & plugged in the vacuum cleaner!!!!!!!!!!
