Will we pay a price for our pleasure and conveniences?
In most families, children are taught and encouraged to do their share to help maintain families and communities. This is natural and they can take pride in their contribution. But in the situation that has become more prevalent in the modern world is that children are being forced into lives of hard labour to help maintain adults who should know better in lives of privilege.
This is one of the darker sides of capitalism where in the case of mining, minerals are taken/stolen from the earth and much of the labour is performed by children were often paid so little that they remain perpetually malnourished and are constantly abused.

This is how it works to steal your credit card details:
You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they return the card to you.
You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.
The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card

Hi, you can call me Carol, a happily single 28-year-old lawyer. All the guys in the office think I’m a pretty good-looking not likely to agree that the flattery as nice. Its a fairly high stress job and its normal behaviour for the guys after a bad day or a particularly good day to go out and get laid after work though it’s not considered proper for women.
It would have been convenient to get off with some of my colleagues that we had a strict rule about office affairs just in case they got out of hand. My sex life on the whole is good enough but on

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to

Would it make women safer?
From time to time various groups of people within society speak out against the world’s oldest profession. While most intelligent people recognise that what is referred to as prostitution caters for a very real human need and the trade makes up a significant part of the economy.
But before we continue, let’s clarify some terms as there are millions of women around the world referred to as prostitutes who could be referred to as sex workers, Escort’s or Courtesan’s.
The word prostitute means to go against one’s core values and beliefs. Therefore anyone prostituting themselves is doing themselves some psychological and possibly physical harm. Prostitutes may not necessarily like sex, they simply do

A cowboy, who’d just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walked into a bar and ordered three mugs of Bud. He sat in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he’d finished them, he came back to the bar and orders three more.
The bartender approached and said to the cowboy, “You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time.”
The cowboy replied, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the

Actual complaints to a travel agency
1. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”
2. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallarta to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.”
3. “On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”
4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”
5. “The beach was

One day, a young man entered a general store, and asked the beautiful, mini-skirted young woman for a loaf of self-raising bread, which was located on the very top shelf.
The woman climbed up a ladder, reached for the bread, and provided the man with an excellent view of her firm cheeks.
It wasn’t long before dozens of young men were going into the store and asking for self-raising bread. After a while, she became tired and irritated.
She stood at the top of the ladder, and said to an elderly man stood amongst the throng, “Is yours self-raising too?”
The feeble old man croaked, “No, unfortunately, I need a little manual help!”
Embarrassing moments for some
Celebrities entertain us and they go to great lengths to look sexy and seductive so it’s no surprise that they have wardrobe malfunctions or stumble in their uncomfortable footwear.
But for most of them who reveal a breast or the fact that they are not wearing panties may simply be a sexy game they’re playing for publicity, but we like to hope that some of them have gotten over the idea of identifying the bodies and they are happy to share their well sculpted bodies.
You could say this is real life and do some level many of the celebrities that people admire and see as role models at the end of the day are just

A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
‘Have you ever done anything of particular merit?’ St. Peter asked.
‘Well, I can think of one thing,’ the cowboy offered.
‘On a trip to the Black Hills out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of bikers, who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn’t listen.
So, I approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker and smacked him in his face, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring, and threw it on the ground.
I yelled, ‘Now, back off!! Or I’ll kick the shit out of all of you!’
St. Peter was impressed, ‘When did this happen?’
