    Yeah, is an April Fool joke:D.

    I like the one about the short arse French president going in for stretching therapy so he can be taller than his girlfriend. They reckon they can stretch him by 5 inches and make him taller than her :D

    Mr Nerdy, you can't possibly be besmirching the honesty and integrity of one of the countries leading tellers of truth - say it aint so!

    I'm with Tim, The Sun is an upstanding and honest paper. Where else can we hear the things others won't print. Such as the story of the creepy gnome (which still haunts me)

    If you startup google maps and look up Barry, you will indeed find this object. I think it is some kind of tower, according the wave patrone in the sea.

    Ancient therapy. They did this already in the middle ages. This therapy is called 'racking'. They did get longer on this, but back then the therapy was not worked out in much detail, so some patients ended up dead or dismembered.

    Well all i can say is i wasnt fooled by that... but then i lived near that power station for 10 years (Aberthaw its called) and i could have told you exactly what that was. Its abig concrete dome, thats and oulet for waste water from the plant and i also think they use it as an intake to help provide some of the cooling water.

    Not the best April fools day joke by any means!
