The lack of posts has been due to me concentrating on examinations. Yeah right!!! Let me rephrase that... The lack of posts should probably have been due to me concentrating on examinations. I hate revising!
One exam done and another tomorrow. The first was awful - the examining board is renowned for picking tiny parts of the syllabus and making them into huge, irrelevant questions. Also, they have a knack for making the question as confusing as possible. Anyway... three hours tomorrow and I am done for a while.
I saw this just now and it made me laugh...
A judge in Stuttgart, Germany, is currently trying to decide on a lawsuit in which a man hired his neighbour to impregnate his wife.
Demetrius Soupolos, 29, and his former beauty queen wife, Traute, were very keen to have a child together, but Demetrius was sterile so they began to seek out other possible options. The option the couple eventually decided on was to hire their neighbour Frank Maus, 34, to impregnate Traute.
Maus, who was already married with two children agreed to do the job for the fee of €2,000. For three evenings a week for the next six months, a total of 72 different times, Maus tried to impregnate Traute.
When his own wife objected, Maus explained that he was "only doing it for the money."
After the unsuccessful six-month period Soupolos insisted that Maus take a medical examination. The doctor concluded that Maus was also sterile, which forced his wife into admitting that their two children did not belong to him.
Soupolos is now suing Maus in an effort to get his money back. Maus' argument is that he did not guarantee conception, only that he would try his hardest.
