Bangkok: Health authorities are alarmed about a phallic fad in the Thai capital where men are having their penises whitened.

A Bangkok hospital clinic that uses a laser whitening procedure has been attracting a growing clientele in a country where many women are obsessed with whitening their skin.

A procedure becoming increasingly popular in Thailand is penis whitening, the latest in a string of different forms of skin whitening.
 
"The skin of the private part is sensitive. Such laser services may cause irritation, allergies and inflammation," said Dr Thongchai Keeratihuttayakorn, Thailand's Health Service Support Department deputy director-general.

"What if your skin becomes spotted?"

Reminds me of a kiwi bloke I worked with once, nickname was Bleachey, when asked why he wouldn't say.
Found out a few years later that his missus would bleach his arse hair for him!
He never lived it down.  ;D ;D ;D

Anyone still using Wooden Chopping blocks etc

I remember the microbiologist at work here cringing when i said I'd bought some new wooden cutting boards for home and giving me a lecture on why not to use them...

A restaurant in Birmingham, England, has copped a hefty fine for serving food on wooden planks instead of plates.

Ibrahim's Grill and Steakhouse was fined £50,000 ($86,000) on January 4 for failing to comply with food safety requirements.

According to the Twitter account of Birmingham City Council, Ibrahim's was visited by health inspectors in October 2016 after an alleged food poisoning outbreak affecting a party of 14.

It was found that the wooden serving boards used by the restaurant were incapable of being hygienically cleaned due to charcoal stains and surface cracks where debris could possibly accumulate.

Certainly do, won't use anything but wooden boards, give a wash with hot water and detergent and away they go, let em dry naturally, had one board for over thirty years. :cheers:

My Dad is a retired butcher and ages ago I asked him which is better, a plastic or wooden chopping board.  Basically he said, 'Why do you think butchers use big wooden blocks and have been for ever..... '  Yep, have been using a wooden board since then and that was a long time ago.... Kevin

Cheaper $40 to $100 units out there that offer almost the same features and quality for the average punters who make up the lions share of the market that Would much rather loose / use a  a $40 sports camera than a $400 Go Pro ..

Yep rio Steve and condolences to his family.

Pretty tragic , he had a young family too! Bit of a lesson there , he got and did what he wanted to rather than leaving it too late !
Here for a good time, not a long time!

Qld news today reports Qld Driver's Licences will no longer state that the holder is a male or female after complaints from the LGBTI that it was discriminatory. Appears they do not know if they are male or female ???

 Also the height of the holder will also not be stated as that is also discriminatory.  ???

Seriously when will this absolute stupidity stop.  Why do minority groups have so much power?

I wish the media would state who gave the final decision. Who is the idiot who said, 'yep, that is a brilliant idea'.  Name and shame them. Sad really that their greatest achievement in life is to make these kind of decisions.  What is next, no photo as that is discriminatory. What the hell, how about a licence is no longer needed.....

Pandering to the minority again, the SA gov is now looking in to providing swimming lessons for African migrants to educate them on the dangers of the ocean after two have drowned in the last twelve months.
