The age you should stop wearing jeans

    Surely there's no age limit on jeans? They're timeless. Studies are a wonderful thing, without it we might not know important information such as the best time to book flights, the most unfaithful star sign and now, the exact time you should ditch the denim. According to a PUS (Possibly Unnecessary Study) the exact moment to get rid of those skinny jeans you’ve been hanging on to is when you blow out the candles on your 53rd birthday cake. The study, conducted by UK parcel delivery service CollectPlus, surveyed 2000 Brits who agreed jeans are reserved for the younger folk - younger being anyone aged 52 and under that is (feeling great right about now?). "It's surprising to see our research reveals that many people think jeans are the reserve of the younger generation, sugg...

I lost my virginity to alien: artist’s bizarre claim

    The movie Love and Saucers explores David Huggins’ tale of his out-of this-world romance with an ET. In the film, Huggins shows off his explicit paintings of his ‘alien lover’. One picture, which he called ‘Virginity Lost’, refers to the night he first claims he first had sex with Crescent, reports dailystar.co.uk. He described the alleged encounters as painful at first until they became lovers and even had a baby together. Huggins, who is actually married, says he has fathered several half-alien offspring to date – although it’s unclear whether he pays child maintenance towards them. He said: ‘I just lay down on the ground and she got on top of me. I have no idea why me. I just don’t know. ‘I don’t know much, but I do know for sure I lost my virginity to an extra-terrestr...

Trump asked FBI director three times if he was target of investigations

    Donald Trump said Thursday he asked his now-fired FBI director on three occasions whether he was the target of ongoing investigations, stoking allegations of presidential interference. The US president also acknowledged that Russia was on his mind when he made the decision to sack James Comey, who had been heading a probe into suspected Russian influence in the 2016 election. ‘When I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story,’ he said in an interview with NBC, appearing to link Comey’s firing with the investigation. Trump said he had asked Comey if he was the subject of counter-intelligence probes — twice in conversations over the phone and once over a White House dinner. ‘I actually asked him, yes....

Estranged wife gets £453m in one of biggest UK divorce settlements

    Luxury yachts. A divorce claim, settled in London, has involved divvying up the value of a yacht, plane, helicopter, properties and $112m art collection. The former wife of an oil and gas trader has been awarded £453m in one of the largest divorce settlements ever agreed by a UK court. It confirms London’s status as the favoured location to bring divorce claims against super-rich spouses. The couple in the case were not identified by the family court judge, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave, but the man, 61, is originally from the Caucasus, while the woman, 44, was born in eastern Europe. Both were raised in Russia and met in Moscow in 1989, when she was studying in the city. He had been married before. The couple moved to London in 1993 and have two children. They both have accused ...
