Singapore OverEasy nightclub offers free drinks by bust size

* By Frank Carnevale in Singapore

* January 19, 2010 6:39AM

A NIGHTCLUB in Singapore is offering free drinks to women according to their bra size according a report in the China Press, MyFox National reported.

"Fill My Cups" nights are all the rage at the OverEasy nightclub, complete with promotional posters proclaiming "Booze for your boobs."

The stunt has been called both humorous and distasteful.

"I think the concept is funny but I would not degrade myself by being a part of it," a 19-year-old women told The New Paper, a local publication.

But another woman said she did not think it would be "embarrassing" to be judged on her bust. "After all, I'm rather proud of my assets."

The free drink nights have strict rules: There are two judges, one of each gender, who visually determine each woman's cup size. A women with an A cup receives one free drink, a B cup gets two, a C cup slurps down three, those lucky enough to have a D cup walk away with a free bottle of vodka.

The club named the gimmick after one its guest deejays who goes by the moniker DJ DCUP.

Read more about the club handing out free drinks based on cup size at MyFox News.

------------------------------------------

I think it would be more like 2 bottles for Centz. ^_^

But what a ploy - not only do you get chicks with big tatas, but they're under the influence as well! Sounds like a winning combination in La Sombras' Dirty Tricks Playbook (subtitled 'All's Fair In Love And Boobies'). :pirate:

Must go back to Singapore one day.

Are big breasted girls rare in singapore? Some how I have problems believing that it's profitable... or healthy... to give away whole bottles of booze to fat chicks.

If this is a big club they must be spending thousands on free booze, but I guess they make it back in the long run. The more liquered up people get, the more they spend.

The vast majority are quite slim little things. Most overweight people I saw were non-Asians.

And the girls in those micro-miniskirts ... Phwoarrrr!!! ^_^

But yes, busty Asians are rare. Unless you count Sumos. :pirate:

EDIT: but they are so nice. Not to make a new Hawt Girls thread, but this point needs illustrating.

Speaking of which... would that be immediately mod-bombed, or might we sneak it in until it becomes a massive resource drain?

Long live the internets!
Trouble arrives when the opponents to such a system institute its extreme opposite, where individualism becomes godlike and sacrosanct, and no greater service to any other ideal (including community) is possible. In such a system rapacious greed thrives behind the guise of freedom, and the worst aspects of human nature come to the fore....

And here's a rather tragic story...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.news.com....5013016,00.html

"Woman kills boyfriend by sitting on him"

A WOMAN who weighed 136kg has pleaded guilty to killing her much smaller boyfriend - by sitting on him.

Police in Cleveland said Mia Landingham and Mikal Middleston-Bey, who have three children together, got into an argument in August.

During the altercation Landingham sat on Middleston-Bey, who weighed 54.4kg.

Landingham was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours community service after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter, Fox8 reported.

She was immediately released from jail.

Her attorney told said there was a long history of domestic abuse in the relationship. He asked Judge Carolyn Friedland for leniency and pointed out she has no prior criminal record.

Landingham she was sorry for squashing the father of her children.

"I just want to say that I am sincerely sorry about this situation. I wish I could take it back,” she said.

During Landingham's sentencing, her boyfriend's family spoke of the pain she has caused their family.

"I just want to let you know how much you have hurt us by taking Mikal away from us," said Sharon Phillips, the victim's step-mother.

While Middleton-Bey's family hoped Landingham would eventually be able to take part in her children's lives, they were surprised that she got no additional jail time.

"So basically you can say that I can go sit on somebody and get probation?" said one of the victim's sisters.

"I feel there wasn't no justice."

Landingham faced a maximum of five years behind bars.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Australia ranked world number one for sinning

* From: The Advertiser
* January 29, 2010 3:05AM

* Australia ranked 1 for sinning
* South Korea ranked 1 for lust
* United States ranked 1 for gluttony

AUSTRALIANS are the worst sinners in the world, British researchers have decided.

In a study of 35 countries, Australians come up as the most likely to commit one of the biblical seven deadly sins.

An article in the February edition of Focus, a UK magazine produced by the BBC, states Australians rank first for envy and third for lust and gluttony.

The authors used a points system to determine which countries committed the seven deadly sins - lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride - the most.

They measured a nation's tendency towards being sloths, for example, by looking at the number of days they took off work. When a country finished first in a category it was awarded 10 points. A second placing gathered nine points, and so on for all placings in the top 10.

The final tally deemed Australians the most "sin-prone", followed by people in the US, Canada, Finland and Spain.

Despite a documented love of taking sickies, sloth is the sin Australians are least likely to commit, with eight other countries considered lazier, the report shows.

Only six nationalities were considered more wrathful and three were more greedy or proud.

University of Adelaide Emeritus Professor Chilla Bulbeck, from the School of Social Sciences, said the results and criteria used to uncover them were questionable.

"Australians did well with the low ranking in the sloth category, but why not measure the length of the average working week, showing unpaid hours of work?

"The article also tends to focus on what men do or experience rather than women.

"Domestic violence is the most common assault experienced by women, but it's not factored into the wrath category."

James Cook University social demographer Dr Sue Bandaranaike said: "The US, Canada and Australia are the most obese countries in the world so when you see them finish in the gluttony section in that order, it's no surprise."

Topping each of the sin categories were South Korea (lust), the US (gluttony), Mexico (greed), Iceland (sloth and pride), South Africa (wrath) and Australia (envy).

------------------------------

I'm still trying to work out how we can be the most envious. :)

So Sydney's a regular Sodom and Gomorrah huh? Who would've thought. :)

What exactly are we envious of? That's a pretty broad category compared to sloth, greed or gluttony. In a report saying we're the most envious, the article doesn't exactly say how they measured envy...

Actually, we work some of the longest hours in the developed world. Weird, huh? What we view as slacking off is a hard days' work in Europe or America. :)

I think calling Australia the 'developed world' might be a bit much, you are more of a horny teenager.
