James Bond “Spectre” first full trailer…

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Released in the UK on October 26

Dutch man hasn’t stopped laughing for two years after hip operation

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

A Dutch man has been unable to stop laughing ever since he underwent a hip operation two years ago.

Huug Bosse and his wife have appeared on TV show Man Bijt Hond, stating that the anaesthesia used in the 2010 operation has led to him constantly laughing out loud.

“It appears that due to the operation, due to the anaesthesia, he was laughing more,” his wife said while Bosse continued to giggle.

She added: “Sometimes it starts to get really annoying all that laughing the whole day. When you are having a discussion and all he does is laughing, then it gets annoying.”

Mr Bosse revealed that his change of behaviour has put a strain on his children, saying: “They don’t visit any more.”

However, he explained that hearing the Dutch national anthem is the only thing that makes him cry, describing it as a “beautiful” song.
