Sunday–28Oct18

The cooler weather makes all the breaks I have endured hurt…or is ache the word us old farts use?  Better half made one of my favorites, Banana Nut Bread……enough about my routine let’s get busy.

Just a thought here….you know those ads for mattresses that claim they have memory foam?  On a bed there are some things it should not remember……

With that said I read an interesting piece…..

A UK woman is suing after, she says, a faulty bed caused an accident that paralyzed her while she was having sex. Claire Busby, 46, says the bed had been delivered a week prior, the BBC reports. She says she was “positioned kneeling over” her partner in the middle of the bed when she “swung her legs” from underneath her to shift her position, then attempted to lie back down, but the bed somehow collapsed and she was thrown from it, falling off the end and landing on her head. “I spun around, I put my hand down and then I felt like I was catapulted off the back of the bed,” she said in court, per the Guardian. “I fell to the side and heard what felt like a spring in my body snap.”

Her then-partner testified that he saw her roll backward off the bed and initially laughed when she told him she couldn’t feel her limbs, thinking she was joking, the BBC reports. She received a severe spinal injury from the fall. She says the two portions of the bed base weren’t fastened together correctly and that two feet were missing from the end, creating a height difference between the two portions of the base. She’s suing Berkshire Bed Company for seven figures over the 2013 incident, but lawyers for the company say the bed was properly assembled. “It is overwhelmingly likely that, whatever her actions, they were too close to the edge of the bed and she simply lost balance and toppled backwards,” says a lawyer for the firm.

In sex the law is “positioning, positioning, positioning”….

Did you know that there is a survey for sex injuries?

In case you are interested…… Here’s what a review of sex-injury data reveals

More later my friends…..

  1. I don’t see how she could have previously used that bed without noticing the faults. We are catching on to the ‘litigation society’ here now, and people are starting to sue for all kinds of rubbish. Over the last ten years, we have ‘Injury Lawyers’ advertising on TV, promising to get you lots of money, with no fees. They take 50% of the claim for their trouble.
    And those aches and pains are always worse in cold and damp. It’s just Arthritis, but uncomfortable at times.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Mine are a broken femur replaced with metal and missing toes and a hand that was broken many years ago….we called those guys “ambulance chasers”…..chuq

  2. The only injury I have ever received from sex was the realization that I am not doing it anymore– and have no intention of doing so. Too much work for seven seconds of pleasure!
