Most remarkable woman
« on: October 31, 2009, 09:42:11 pm »

http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/latest/6414485/woman-in-iron-lung-for-60-years-dies/

And the rest of the news if filled with drivel like 'nicole ritchie' this or 'beyonce' that.

I didn't realise that you don't have to be in an iron lung 24/7. I've learnt something. WTF can i learn from knowing Nicole Ritchie is having trouble with paparazi? Who could give a ---fudgesicle--- ?

As hard as it is to take sometimes, i would much rather hear stories about people like June Middleton than about perpetual '15 minutes of famers'...

Where did you pick up on that? ???

Pictures show June Middleton with some sort of weird looking copper bowl thing. I guess they make them mobile now?

Hmmm, maybe i've misconstrued:

"It gave her some independence and she was able to go on regular outings, and take annual holidays."

Maybe they are portable then...
