Unable to escape from Derren Brown

By Gay, TV, Online Streaming & FilmsNo Comments

A few weeks ago it seemed like I was unable to escape from Derren Brown. He was on Channel 4 and I was facinated by his show which included an audience of both celebs and ordinary people from a variety of backgrounds. Since he has predicted correctly the lotto numbers.

I heard his prediction in the news (see Telegraph, Daily Mail) he had correctly predicted the correct lotto numbers. I was suitably impressed to say the least. But then I read the story on Pink News and was shocked to learn that Derren is gay. He apparently came out two years ago, I had no idea.

See gay people are everywere. In every job, role and part of society.

They say the statistic is 1 in 10 people are gay, lesbian or bisexual. I think it’s probably much higher. What do you think? Leave a comment.

What I’d do if I won the euro millions

By Thinking3 Comments

The euro millions is appoximately £85m this coming Friday, according to the National Lottery website. Of course, I will be buying a ticket or two (that goes with out saying really). I know the odds are like billions to one. But it’s the hope of winning that makes you play, isn’t it? The dream of winning…and what you’d do with the cash.

So it got me thinking, what would I do with the money if I won? Well…here’s some ideas.

£7, 650, 000, 000 To charity (10% of my winnings, if I was the sole winner of the jack pot). I think I would donate a considerable sum to organisations working on a cure for Type 1 diabetes, as it is a condition I live with (and sometimes suffer with). Therefore it is a cause close to my heart.

£10, 000, 000 To set up a charity and run the charity to help young people as well as people on the edge of society to achieve their aspirations. I have worked hard, like most people to get where they are. But then I have had a lot of support, that not all people have. A proportion of the interest recieved from saving a certain amount in a high interest savings account (see below) each year would go in to this charity to continously fund it and the good work it would do.

£3, 000, 000 To Family and friends. I would want to help them out financially and make them more comfortable.

£175, 000 To pay off my mortage on my apartment (see The Move) any debts and to travel.

£60, 000, 000 In a high interest savings account (as suggested by my step dad Dean), so that I could live off the interest and pay some of the interest in to the charity.

Ha ha and I’d have to think about the rest! What would you do?
