Sadio Mané scores the fastest hat trick in Premier League history

Remarkable. Incredible. Amazing. There are perhaps no words to sum up what happened in under three minutes at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton on Saturday.

Sadio Mané scored the quickest hat trick in Premier League, as Southampton’s Senegalese forward netted three times in 2 minutes and 56 seconds of Southampton’s game against Aston Villa…

We couldn’t believe it while we watched it live, this morning.

Poor Tim Sherwood. One of our favorite managers – and Aston Villa performing like defense hadn’t yet been invented.

British SWAT Team responds to protect citizens against toy tiger

The alert was raised by several members of the public yesterday afternoon when they spotted what they believed to be a live white tiger in a field near Hedge End, Southampton, Hampshire.

The police helicopter was scrambled and a golf course cleared after police arrived at the scene and confirmed the sighting.

Armed police were called to the scene in case the animal came too close to members of the public.

Specialist staff from nearby Marwell Zoo also attended to advise and potentially tranquilise the wild animal…Plans were put in place to close the nearby M27 motorway if necessary in case the tiger moved in that direction.

But as police officers carefully approached the ”wild animal” they realised it was not moving and the helicopter crew, using thermal imaging equipment, realised there was no heat source coming from it…

”The tiger then rolled over in the down draft from the helicopter and it was at that point it became obvious it was a stuffed life-size toy.

At this moment they’re treating as a lost-and-found event. Har!

The Isle has an interesting history

A man who thought he was sailing along the coast of southern England had to be rescued by emergency services after his motor boat ran out of fuel while repeatedly circling a small island in the River Thames estuary.

The man, who had no nautical guides and only had a roadmap to navigate by, had been trying to sail from Gillingham, about 35 miles east of London, to Southampton on April 19 by following the southern coast of England.

But he ended simply doing laps of the 36-square mile Isle of Sheppey a short distance away in the mouth of the Thames.

Eventually a lifeboat and coastguard were sent to rescue him after he used up all his fuel and ran aground, officials said on Wednesday. He told them he had been trying to navigate by keeping the coastline to his right.

“He was attempting to travel around the UK from Medway to Southampton and had somehow lost his bearings and ended up traveling around the Isle of Sheppey,” said Robin Castle, a member of the local lifeboat station.

“It seems he didn’t have the usual maritime charts or navigational equipment.”

Someone buy this guy a GPS. A very good, talking GPS.

How NOT to pay for your vacation


More than £1 million-worth of cocaine has allegedly been found strapped to the bodies of four cruise ship passengers after a raid on the vessel as it docked at Southampton.

Dozens of officers from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and the UK Border Agency boarded the P&O ship Arcadia early Monday morning.

Officers recovered 30 kilos of cocaine, worth $2.4 million, officials said.

The ship had just returned from a 23-day cruise around the Caribbean where it stopped at places including Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados.

A spokeswoman for P&O said this was the first time she had known passengers to be arrested for allegedly smuggling cocaine.

University to conduct largest-ever study of how you die

The AWARE (AWAreness during REsuscitation) study is to be launched by the Human Consciousness Project of the University of Southampton – an international collaboration of scientists and physicians who have joined forces to study the human brain, consciousness and clinical death.

“Contrary to popular perception,” Dr Parnia explains, “death is not a specific moment. It is a process that begins when the heart stops beating, the lungs stop working and the brain ceases functioning – a medical condition termed cardiac arrest, which from a biological viewpoint is synonymous with clinical death.

During a cardiac arrest, all three criteria of death are present. There then follows a period of time, which may last from a few seconds to an hour or more, in which emergency medical efforts may succeed in restarting the heart and reversing the dying process. What people experience during this period of cardiac arrest provides a unique window of understanding into what we are all likely to experience during the dying process.”

A number of recent scientific studies carried out by independent researchers have demonstrated that 10-20 per cent of people who go through cardiac arrest and clinical death report lucid, well structured thought processes, reasoning, memories and sometimes detailed recall of events during their encounter with death.

Doctors will be studying the brain and consciousness during cardiac arrest. At the same time, they will record and compare perception vs. reality of so-called out of body experiences. No doubt this will upset several flavors of the mysterious ways and bible-thumping crowd.
