How you know you’re addicted to cosmetic surgery.

The woman pictured above, Hang Mioku, had her first plastic surgery at the age of 28.  Over the next 20 years she had multiple surgeries on her face and was even injecting her face with silicone and eventually cooking oil.  Mioku went on Korean television and money was raised to help reduce the size of her face.  Doctors removed over a 1/2 lb. of foreign substances from her face and neck.

Be more constructive with your feedback please: “Flight of the Conchords” to end their HBO series after the 2nd season.

Awww…flup! Catch a video from Flight of the Conchords 1st season after the story.

Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords will be only making one more season of their award-winning sitcom.

Fans are sure to be disappointed, but Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have told British music magazine Q two seasons will almost certainly be the end.

The first series of the quirky show has aired in the United States, Britain, Australia and New Zealand, but the twosome said they were struggling with “a difficult second series” during an interview for Q.

“We’ve got a lot of half-songs,” said Clement. “We’ve got an album’s worth of beginnings of songs.”

McKenzie revealed this series, made up of 10 new episodes, would likely be the last. “The second series seems to me like it would be a good end to the show. I feel like another 10… that will be enough.”

If the sitcom finishes after this run, it will find itself in good company alongside Ricky Gervais’ award-winning comedies, The Office and Extras, which ended leaving fans wanting more after two seasons.

Flight of the Conchords, which screened on Prime, has brought the Kiwi men international acclaim, along with winning a Grammy award for best comedy album.

Clement and McKenzie attribute much of their success to the series – including landing a booking for one of the biggest comedy gigs the world has seen, playing to 20,000 people in London’s new O2 arena in January.

Heralded by Q as “the funniest thing to be found right now both on stage and TV,” the Kiwis were low key about the achievement.

“I think having a TV show helps fill a big venue,” Clement said. “We have seen how powerful TV can be.”

The pair are now based in Los Angeles where they have been performing to sell-out audiences in venues such as the Orpheum Theatre and the Amoeba Music record store, where they attracted more fans than than Paul McCartney’s visit.

UK elementary school cancels sports day because the playing filed is “uneven” and children could “trip and fall.”

June 20, 2008


The head teacher of Holmbush First School in Shoreham, West Sussex, has written to parents to tell them that the annual event has been called off to avoid accidents.

Rebecca Jackson told them that the surface of the school’s playing field could be “too dangerous” for the traditional sack, egg-and-spoon, wheelbarrow and three-legged races.

She said there were concerns that cracks and holes in the surface could cause the young pupils to “trip or fall”.

But parents have said the decision to ban sports day, which was scheduled for July 14, is “ludicrous”.

Louise Powell, 32, a physiotherapist, was unimpressed when her daughter Maisie, five, came home from school with the letter.

She said: “The school produces a newsletter every month. The latest issue said they’ve cancelled sports day for health and safety issues because the ground is uneven.

“I’m absolutely furious because we were so looking forward to it. We were excited because it would have been Maisie’s first sports day, it’s really upset me. It’s ludicrous.

“I did sports day on ground that was uneven. Our playing field was on a slope and I know my husband did his on ground that was probably uneven. “When we were kids, you just got on with it.”

She added other parents and children were equally disappointed.

Another mum, who didn’t want to be named, said: “Part of the fun of school sports days is running about and falling over all over the place – especially the three-legged race.

“You are expected to fall over when you take part in a three-legged race, that’s almost the point of it.”

However, Mrs Jackson has defended the decision. She said the field, which has recently been acquired by the school, was used as farmland and is not yet ready for use by the 267 pupils.

She said: “The school has not had a sports day before and we were hoping to organise one this year because we have had some playing field access. “But we have inspected the field and it’s not yet ready to be used for sports day because of cracks and holes in the surface, which could be dangerous and cause children to trip or fall.”
