A Manchester woman who took a tumble from her Wii Fit board is suffering an earth-moving side effect of the Nintendo-related mishap: she's now a nymphomaniac. "Randy" Amanda Flowers, 24, was diagnosed with "persistent sexual arousal syndrome due to a damaged nerve", the Daily Star explains. She's susceptible to the "slightest of …
Shows the difference between UK and USA - in the latter I'm sure Ms Flowers would be reaching for that attorney, whereas here in Blighty it's more likely a call to Max Clifford.
That said, checking the instructions for my Wii-Fit (too many sodas/beers/pizzas to work off) and it does quite clearly warn you about losing balance. Slippery rugs are definite no-no.
Stupid question - but if it's a knocked nerve isn't there something that the medics can do? Joking/sniggering apart - this is bound to be somewhat of a disability.
USA bashing again.
You owe the US bashing kitty a £. From what I hear you're just as litigious over on your side of the pond as we are.
Wonder why nobody ever gets these injuries falling off their Step Aerobics boards? Or a brick?
I guess because the brick doesn't have deep pockets like Nintendo does.
Fair and Balanced USA Bashing though
Having lived on both sides of the pond, I can definitely testify to the UK being much less litigious than the USA. There are a few reasons for that:
1) Punitive damages. Damages awards in the UK are a tiny fraction of what they are in the US. This makes it much harder for lawyers to get rich ambulance chasing and therefore reduces the number of lawyer induced ridiculous lawsuits.
2) No win no fee. This was only recently introduced in the UK, and is a key driver of crazy lawsuits. Interestingly, no win no fee has lots of limitations in the UK, and a frivolous law suit is much more likely to result in extensive costs for the complainant in the UK than the US.
Also another clear sign that litigation is much more likely in the US than the UK is the presence of adverts about companies converting structured settlements into cash now. These adverts don't exist at all in the UK, but are regularly on daytime TV in the US.
Kids, Weddings, etc
As mentioned best fixes are:
Not having a shave
Seriously my girlfriend is highly sexed, minimum is once a day, and twice is more normal, if i was at home I dont think she would ever stop!
Also I agree the friction burns, "paper" cuts, etc can be quite painful if you have had a busy weekend!
Re: Kids, Weddings, etc
Man has super-horny girlfriend, active sex life, doesn't want to talk about it on the internet.
You are supposed to put the magazine down, or at least hold it in the other hand.
RE: Kids, Weddings, etc
"if i was at home I dont think she would ever stop!"
If she's as highly sexed as you claim, there's a high probability that the sex doesn't stop just because you've gone out to work...
Re: Kids, Weddings, etc
stop bragging mate
"Seriously my girlfriend is highly sexed, minimum is once a day, and twice is more normal, if i was at home I dont think she would ever stop!"
I take it you work 7 days a week, every week? Or too scared to go back for more?!?!!?
Title goes here
He probably works for Apple
When you're *not* home
ever wonder what she's up to? Perhaps she doesn't stop...
Onion sues Register!
...or at least tries to hire the author away
pass me a wii and stand back
what the title says
Why do I never get a "thanks for the tip" like I see on other articles, when I send something in?
Maybe I'm just too slow and others beat me to it...
No, just stop!
I'd say just don't bother, The Reg doesn't need this sort of tripe.
I'll be buying the wife a WiiFit then
by the lads at Nintendo
Paris: wondering if she needs a Wii
wondering if I need a Wii
wow! someone who hasn't seen one night.
Like the old joke about the woman who goes to the doctor and says, "Doc, I have this embarrassing condition - every time I sneeze I have an orgasm."
"Hmm," says the white-coat. "Are you currently taking anything for this?"
"Yes - pepper!"
Why would the doctor ask her if she's taking anything for this. Wouldn't he be able to see from her medical records that she isn't?
He would obviously realise that you cannot get anything over the counter to stop this affliction.
this makes no sense
So she's exceedingly sensitive down below .. so that things happen given the slightest provacation... presumably this becoming hugely disruptive and annoying to her life in itself.
Yet she craves 10 "sessions" a day.. umm. . what for?
And you could ..
Get it laminated. No more rubbers or gels required to protect the bit getting worn out.
There's a picture on one of the tabloids. All those people saying they're "Ready and waiting" had better get their head/sick bags ready!
so that's score one for
sweeping generalisations, then.
the gratuitous offence? there's no charge
Seriously, do you realise how much of a cry-baby you sound?
"Boo hoo, Ms Bee made a funny comment at my expense, waa waa waa"
For god's sake, suck it up, get a sense of humour, grow up and move on rather than whining like a little bitch.
sorry I confused you
Robster, I was attempting to be drole by linking two posts together. As for the "gratuitous offence", I was refering to the offence I was causing. I think my initial response to Ms Bee's comment shows I have a sense of humour through the use of self-deprecation or perhaps you didn't bother to read it? So maybe it's you who needs to grow up or at least learn to understand complicated sentences. You might find a dictionary will help too, you half-witted little bitch.
Re: sorry I confused you
Keep that up, 'UncleRant', and I will zap you.
Still on your power trip, Sarah?
That supposed to be a deterrent?
Cause it sure sounds kinky.
Oh dear, is this the level of 'The Reg' authors integrity? Getting stories from the Daily Star, I thought The Reg was the place to come for genuine IT related stories and reviews, but what do I find today, this Tripe, and what a load of twoddle it is. I hope this 'Lester' doesn't consider himself as serious author putting out articles like this, no sorry, not the sort of thing I expect to find here, keep stories printed in the Daily Star/Sun whatever, there, they have no need to be repeated here.
you're new here
actually this was part of a Grey's Anatomy show,
so it's gotta be true !
Well, in the interests of help in the community...
OK - I'm willing to take the first shift, who's next?
that the marketing team that thought up this story are now looking at huge bonuses...
I see you're new here, so I'll offer a few tips.
Anything in 'Bootnotes' is fair game.
Anything written by Lewis or Lester will likely be male chauvinistic in nature with liberal helpings of double entendres. I hasten to add that this is mostly tongue-in-cheek.
If you're likely to be offended by this, I would stay away from articles by either in Bootnotes!
Maybe NSFW shold be redefined as Not Suitable For Women (JOKE, OKAY)
leona has never had a tongue in cheek?
Fail? For me making a stupid comment like this.
I wonder how she had the board set up? I bet the silly sausage had it set up on a slippery or low-friction surface.
Interesting point above about the difference in reaction between your typical American and typical Brit.
A title goes here
Pics or it'll never happen.
Will this incident result in an edict by the Holy Seat? Banning the Wii Fit from use by catholics? Or is it still suitable for priests able to control it?
Can we start a charity hear to donate gear for the demanding dame? We need one of each: food processor, washing machine, dremel, hammer drill, PS 2 controller, 12v battery with alligator clips, ultrasonic cleaner, paint shaker, 12 speed blender, fish tank pump, krytron switches, rubirosa, a dead parrot, SPAM, a vial with Chilean soil, a peeled mango, a cattleprod and the Claude Villee Biology Primer for Highschool students.
Mine's not the one with a 1 TB volume innocently labeled System 64.
Single dinner lady (Harpurhey) seeks..
This isn't a news story - it's a begging letter. And Ok Sarah I won't win any Brad Pitt lookalike compos but I've never fallen for the sexist myth that women have a vastly different attitude to nookie than men. I've just never resorted to advertising in the Daily Star after going without for a few weeks....
Welcome - as all offers would be
is a mental illness which is sometimes has an aspect of a heightened desire for physical sex to offset feelings of low self worth. You don't want to wish this on your girlfriend; You nip down the shops for five minutes and you return find her naked in the street running after the milkman and don't try to go to work, whatever you do. She then spends a prolonged period in a mental hospital.
Nowadays (i.e. since the invention of psycho-analysis) they talk about hypersexuality; Increased desire for sex for a variety of reasons. But hey, schizophrenia is not multiple personality disorder, why let facts get in the way of a good story.
