Legal Advice on CCTV in Uk

Question for you legal beavers out there. A house near us has installed CCTV, all well and good. However, it seems to be pointing over not into their garden but the garden of their neighbour (and a friend of mine). I think that they are breaking the Human Rights Law of entitlement to privacy. Is this correct? I could understand if there was access from a public pathway through my neighbours garden into theirs and their need for security but there is not.

If they are breaking the law – what is your advice as to handle it?

They have already tried to tell my mate that she can’t paint her decking green (it’s a nice shade, we have it). She has ignored that one. So I have a feeling that popping round may not end well. I suggested visiting her solicitors and getting them to send a letter.

No there is not a happy me all the time

I have the post holiday blues. Yes, I know I am lucky and fortunate to be able to go on holiday, many people cannot, so some people may think that this is just a twine. Well, technically I suppose it is.

However, I do have quite a long history of depression and mental illness. It is not just a case of ‘snap out of it’, if I could I would. Do you think I like feeling like this? My sleep patterns go to hell on a handcart, I get anxiety attacks and dreams, my get up and go, gets up and goes and I self harm. It has gotten so bad that I have tried to kill myself in the past. Yes, I have asked for help and gone to some CBT sessions but as lovely as the councillor was I felt worse after them so I stopped going.

I am lucky to have the support of a very patient husband and some very good friends, who over the last couple of years have been there for me; even when I was about two questions from being sectioned by my GP.

So please excuse me while I am not showing the happy mask that I normally wear. Don’t ask me what’s wrong, I can’t really explain it and it’s annoying. Quite frankly wearing the mask all the time is really tiring, like an actor never being able to stop playing a role. Sometimes I can’t even tell who the real me is occasionally.

Oh and world, please stop fighting and generally being shite to each other, you are not helping either!

Stages of Deterioration in the Human Body

Please feel free to correct me on any of these. (Originally found on Tumblr)

The Moment Of Death: 
1. The heart stops.
2. The skin gets tight and ashen in color.
3. All the muscles relax.
4. The bladder and bowels empty.
5. The body temperature begins to drop 1 1/2 degrees Fahrenheit per hour.

After 30 minutes: 
6. The skin gets purple and waxy.
7. The lips, fingernails, and toenails fade to a pale color.
8. Blood pools at the bottom of the body.
9. The hands and feet turn blue.
10. The eyes sink into the skull.

After 4 hours: 
11. Rigor mortis has set in.
12. The purpling of the skin and the pooling of the blood continue.
13. Rigor continues to tighten muscles for another 24 hours or so.

After 12 hours: 
14. The body is in full rigor mortis.

After 24 hours: 
15. The body is now the temperature of the surrounding environment.
16. In males, the semen dies.
17. The head and neck are now a greenish-blue color.
18. The greenish-blue color spreads to the rest of the body.
19. There is a pervasive smell of rotting meat.

After 3 days: 
20. The gas in the body tissues forms large blisters on the skin.
21. The whole body begins to bloat and swell grotesquely.
22. Fluids leak from the mouth, nose, vagina, and rectum.

After 3 weeks: 
23. The skin, hair, and nails are so loose they can easily be pulled off the corpse.
24. The skin bursts open on many places on the body.
25. Decomposition will continue until the body is nothing but skelital remains, a process that can take a month or so in hot climates, and two months or more in cold climates.

A few jokes to lighten your day

Warning these ‘jokes’ may make you groan or run for your sanity. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
