June 21, 1998 BAJAN NEWS ---------- PIGS EAT MAN'S $1200 VIAGRA !!!!!! ---------------------------------- A Christ Church man borrowed $400 from his employer, and in an effort to "rise" to his girlfriends expectations, he joined with two other friends and bought a $1200 bottle of VIAGRA. He suffers from blood pressure and his lady said that sex was slow in "coming"... so in an effort to satisfy her needs, he ended up with his share of the pills, 14 in all... he put them in the place where he was accustomed to keeping medication and told his girl about them.... he then went into Oistins and later when he came back.... she was feeding the pigs and he saw the Viagra bottle in the garden. He asked her what she had done and she replied that the pig was the body who wanted them.... she said she did not want anybody running her round the Garrison ... she then picked up all her clothes and went back to her mother. The 51 year-old security guard says he wants his $400 back. He says, "The pig ain't doing no more than he doing before, only biting down the pen... if she did not want me to touch her she could have said so... I have been living with her since 1986... but my sex life started to go down two years ago because of my pressure" He has two children from her... but he says, "I was saying that she did me a good thing after hearing that you should not take the pills when you have pressure.... but I am demanding my $400.. if she wants me back. It ain't fair to put out such money and don't get satisfaction" BAJAN MAKES SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH ----------------------------------- Dr. Cardinal Warde, a Barbadian physics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) -- one of America's most prestigious educational institutions -- has invented a miniature liquid display unit about the size of the finger-nail on the pinky (little finger). Mounted in what appears to be a pair of "sunglasses", what people see is an image suspended in space abut 18 inches away from their eyes.... sort of just hanging in their field of view. The display can be fed video or computer output and the applications are limited only by one's imagination. Access to blueprints, medical history or instumentation readout.... with the hands free... and vision not impaired.... the device could be used by engineers, surgeons, pilots... etc.... this is the smallest, sharpest LCD- style display yet devised. Dr. Warde's company, Optron Systems, based in Bedford, MA is seeking to raise US$8 million to manufacture the high-tech product. I can only speculate that if Dr. Warde was white and American... he would have the money already... but I trust that in 1998 and with the determination that he must have had to reach this far.... it will not be long before his invention is a household word... with credit going to him (and not another)... And for the Barbadian students at MIT.... whatever your field of study... be the BEST.... OK ? POLICE BRUTALITY ---------------- Police shot a man in the foot Thursday and killed his brother's dog, after they barged into his backyard in pursuit of a suspect. In what appears to be a callous display of force, officers chasing the suspect into the man's backyard, encountered the Doberman dog.... apparently, the suspect escaped while the innocent man was wounded and the dog shot dead.... What seems to have been more offensive, was the fact that after the man was wounded and bleeding profusely..... the officers paid no attention to him.... and only when angry neighbors began quarrelling with them and telling them that he should be taken to hospital... was anything done. You know.... armed bank robbers have run through MY backyard, too.... making their getaway.... fortunately, although I saw them through a window from inside the house.. I did not know who they were, and within seconds they had jumped the front wall and gone into the street. I have raised the wall several feet and installed razor ribbon coils mounted on barbed wire... sort of like, a prison ? .... because I can't encourage that sort of thing round my place. But don't be deterred by all this.... Come on over and enjoy the SUN, SAND, SEA and especially the RUM....after all if you have to go.... better to do it in Paradise, right ?
