Europe Is Not Dead!

If there is one characteristic all Europeans share across the continent, it is certainly their love for football! But by “football” Europeans don’t mean American football, that you actually play with a rather suspect ball, using your hands and not foot. No! European football!

AN ANCIENT skull fragment found in the River Thames belonged to a young man who lived more than 5,600 years ago. It was discovered on the South Bank by a mudlarker – a treasure hunter who scavenges in rivers and mud for hidden valuables. The frontal bone of an ancient man’s skull was found in the River Thames Archaeologists say the fragment is the frontal bone of a skull that belonged to an 18-year-old man who died in 3,600 BC. This makes it the oldest example of human remains ever fished out of the Thames. Mudlarker Martin Bushell found the skull in September and immediately reported it to the Metropolitan Police. Fearing a potential murder investigation, Martin said he was relieved when radiocarbon dating revealed the man had died thousands of years ago. The skull would have belonged to an 18-year-old man The man lived in Neolithic Britain (artists impression) “Luckily it turned out I’m not a 5,600-year-old murderer,” he told The Times. The mystery man lived in Britain during the Neolithic era, a time when Stonehenge was still under construction. Little is known about these ancient Britons, but it is thought they were only just getting to grips with farming practices as they began to shake off the hunter-gatherer lifestyle. The remains will go on display at the London Museum tomorrow alongside other Neolithic finds made in the Thames. An archaeologist displays the fragment of skull Experts hope the skull bone will help shed light on life in Neolithic Britain. “This is an incredibly significant find,” said Dr Rebecca Redfern, Curator of Human Osteology at the Museum of London. “The Thames is such a rich source of history for us and we are constantly learning from the finds that wash up on the foreshore.” [article-rail-section title=”TOP STORIES IN SCIENCE” posts_category=”5603″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Archaeologists have recently made a number of fascinating ancient finds. Last month, scientists found what they claimed is the “first beer brewed in the UK” from 400BC during widening work on the A14. A plethora of new archaeological sites were uncovered during last summer’s heatwave as dry landscapes revealed hidden treasures beneath Britain’s fields and parks. We pay for your stories!

THEY may have STIs or seriously dirty nether regions, but that hasn’t stopped patients on E4’s Sex Clinic bizarrely using the show to hook up. Sexual health nurse and host Sarah Mulindwa admitted that while patients wait for their appointments with the doctors, they are “swapping numbers” and insisted that the waiting room is better than “any dating app”. Patients taking part in E4 series The Sex Clinic are using the programme as a form dating, host Sarah Mulindwa has revealed (pictured centre) Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she said: “There is a lot of number swapping in the waiting room. You go to your GP you’re not going to find a hot guy. “Sexual health clinics, I don’t want to generalise, because everyone comes in – one of my patients is 70-something – but when you’re in central London there is a young vibe and a massive LGBT community. “There is a theme with our patients, so our waiting room is better than any dating app. You’re about to talk about your sexual history to a complete stranger, so asking for a number is fine.” The TV presenter’s comments come after viewers were stunned last night when a patient admitted she sometimes forgets to wash her privates. The sexual health nurse admitted that while patients wait for their appointments with the doctors, they are “swapping numbers” Nunu admitted suffering from bacterial vaginosis has forced her to up her hygiene when it came to her intimate area. Speaking to a health professional, Nunu told how she knew she was suffering from the common vaginal infection because of a horrible smell. She said: “That’s how I know I’ve got it because of the fishy smell, but also when I forget to wash my vagina.” The professional was surprised by the revelation and asked how she could forget. The Sex Clinic viewers were stunned last night when a patient admitted she sometimes forgets to wash her vagina Nunu got the all clear in her STI test Sorry what???? She “forgets” to wash her vagina???? EXCUSE ME????? #thesexclinic — Chelsea (@crbriggs_) February 18, 2019 How the hell do you forget to wash your vagina? #TheSexClinic — John Tarbet Walker (@JohnTarbet71) February 18, 2019 [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ TV AND SHOWBIZ” posts_category=”169″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Viewers were equally as stunned, writing on Twitter: “How the hell do you forget to wash your vagina? #TheSexClinic. The patient, who recently ended a six-month period of celibacy, explained that she was extra careful nowadays to urinate after sex and to wash her privates. Later in the show she breathed a sigh of relief as she got the all clear. The Sex Clinic is on Monday on E4 at 10pm Got a story? email digishowbiz@the-sun.co.uk or call us direct on 02077824220.

JUST one night after the brutal action at Elimination Chamber and WWE lined up some major surprises for fans on Raw. Here are five things we learnt from the red brand last night: Becky Lynch has been left in no doubt what will happen unless she abides by her suspension Becky Lynch will be arrested if she attacks Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair again (even if Triple H enjoyed it) Triple H opened Raw with a promo on DX’s induction into the Hall of Fame and all the action at Elimination Chamber. Trips also commented on the suspended Becky Lynch’s crutch-wielding assault on Ronda and Charlotte. He said: “Corporately I have to say that if she does that again she’ll be arrested and prosecuted. “But personally I have to say, it was pretty damn cool.” He’s not wrong there. Lastly “The Game” announced that to keep mixing things up on Raw, some major NXT names would be debuting on Raw later that night… NXT starts DIY reunited to make their Monday Night Raw debuts Ricochet was another of the NXT superstars to be given an opportunity Aleister Black was also among the surprises for Raw viewers Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Ricochet, and Aleister Black have all arrived Triple H introduced NXT Champion Ciampa, NXT North American Champion Gargano, Ricochet, and Black, who all went on to have matches later on the show. Ricochet saved Finn Balor from a beat-down at the hands of Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush, which turned into an impromptu tag team match. Ricochet brought out all his best moves in a precision-perfect display of high flying and bouncing around the ring. He got the win when he nailed Rush with his 630 senton. DIGGING HIS OWN GRAVE WWE fans think they’ve found exact moment Corey Graves revealed live on TV he’s allegedly been ‘sleeping with’ Carmella Then Ciampa and Gargano reunited as #DIY to defeat their old foes The Revival (so much for The Revival’s new push as tag champs). It was good match but only scratched the surface of what these teams can do. And the nuances of Ciampa and Gargano’s long-running friendship/fallout/reunion was watered down for the Raw audience. Lastly, Aleister Black beat Elias in an easy match when he hit Elias with Black Mass. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST WWE NEWS” posts_category=”34″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] The Women’s Tag Team Championships will be defended on Raw, SmackDown, and NXT New women’s tag champs Sasha and Bayley came out to celebrate their historic win at Elimination Chamber. They cut a yawn-some promo on how they’re making history and changing the world. But the big news is that they will defend the belts across all three brands – Raw, SmackDown, and NXT. Nia Jax and Tamnia came out to set themselves up as first challengers to the belts – but Sasha and Bayley quickly sent them packing. The threat of more interminable matches from Nia and Tamina is proof enough that Sasha and Bayley should take these new titles as far away from Raw as possible. A feud between Banks and Bayley and the Sky Pirates – Kairi Sane and Io Shirai – on NXT would be more like it. Ronda Rousey showed everyone again why she is the ‘Baddest Woman on the Planet’ She steamrollered her way through the entire Riott Squad Ronda Rousey has fought back from Becky’s attack Becky’s beat-down on Ronda and Charlotte was the highlight of Elimination Chamber – but Ronda proved she was a fighting champion by defending her title against Ruby Riott for the second night running. We’re not sure why Ruby deserved another show after being humiliated in a squash match the night before, but never mind. This time it was a more competitive match but Ronda still scored a decisive victory when she trapped Ruby in the arm-bar. After the match Ronda laid out Riott Squad members Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan for good measure. Rousey showed no signs she was struggling from the brutal attack at Elimination Chamber from Charlotte and Becky [bc_video video_id=”6002601111001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=” Wrestling icon Undertaker makes shock return at non-WWE event “] Drew McIntyre hits Dean Ambrose with a ferocious Claymore Kick Dean Ambrose has a death wish Drew McIntye was seen backstage asking Triple H for a match against Seth Rollins – but Rollins’ old pal Dean Ambrose walked up to McIntyre and slapped him. So the furious McIntyre settled for a match with Ambrose and annihilated the “Lunatic Fringe” with two Claymore Kicks. Backstage, Ambrose hilariously asked Rollins why he wasn’t out there to help him. Ambrose then realised what he was saying, shrugged and walked off. It’s a bitter irony that the Ambrose character is starting to click now he’s set to leave WWE. In other action, Braun Strowman got his revenge against Baron Corbin in a hard-hitting tables match. He smashed Bazza through a table propped up in the corner with a running powerslam for the win.

Patrick McGuinness One of the educational things about going abroad for a few days is that it helps us see our country from the outside.

WE all know that Meghan Markle was an actress before her new role as Duchess of Sussex. But she wasn’t just Rachel in Suits, Meghan also starred as a bed-hopping, drug-snorting party girl in The Boys and Girls Guide to Gettting Down. Here’s how you can you watch it… Meghan Markle is returning to the screen The Boys and Girls Guide to Gettting Down: Why is Meghan Markle set for a surprise return to the big screen? We’re more used to seeing her smiling and waving at the cameras than snorting cocaine, but now get ready to see the Duchess of Sussex as you’ve never seen her before. The former actress may have given up acting to marry Prince Harry, but her 2011 TV show – The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down – has now been picked up for film distribution in America. The tongue-in-cheek show follows 20-something singles clubbing and partying in LA over the course of a single night. In a far cry from her prim and proper Suits character Rachel Zane, Meghan plays single Dana, who is shown shimmying into a skintight dress before a night out. When her friend, Heather, says she didn’t think Dana was on the hunt for a new man, Dana insists: “I dress this way for me. I’m not looking for a guy tonight. Trust me.” A voiceover explains that Meghan’s character is also jealous of Heather’s ample bust. MEGHAN CUPS HER BREASTS In her role in The Boys and Girls Guide to Gettting Down Meghan can be seen snorting a suspicious substance and cupping her boobs As Meghan cups her own breasts, the narrator adds: “She’s considering buying a pair for herself.” The two girls then head to a nightclub where Meghan’s character can be seen snorting a suspicious substance that looks like drugs. When the show was released in 2011 it only lasted one episode because telly executives decided they did not want a whole series. But Artist Rights Distribution is planning to re-release it as a film later this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Shortly after appearing in the racy comedy, Meghan landed the role of Rachel Zane on Suits. [article-rail-topic title=”More on Meghan Markle” term_id=”9197″ posts_number=”6″ /] Is Meghan returning to Suits? TV bosses want Meghan Markle to reprise her role as Rachel Zane in Suits for one final brief appearance, reports claim. If the Duchess of Sussex, 37, says yes, sources claim NBC Universal will pay a multi-million dollar donation to the charity of her choice. The Mirror reports that NBC Universal is planning a cameo role of less than two minutes, which could be shot in the UK. Meghan’s baby bump could be written into the script as her character Rachel got married in her final appearance last April. One senior production source told the newspaper: “We could be done in half a day or less.” He added: “No final figure has yet been arrived at but negotiations are likely to be opened in the very near future. I’ve heard sums ranging from two to six million being kicked around and that sounds a lot – but it would be one of the biggest marketing coups in TV history.” Since the Royal Wedding, syndication deals for all seven seasons of the series in which she starred have been struck with TV stations in dozens of countries. In that last episode of Suits, viewers saw Rachel marry law firm partner Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams, who left the show at the same time. The source added: “We could create a storyline where Rachel and Mike have created new lives for themselves and are starting a family, with Rachel showing an obvious baby bump. “I believe we could get away with only one or two lines from Rachel, perhaps saying how she would never have believed she would have such a wonderful life. This particular route would beautifully mirror real life. “It would give one or several charities a big boost, portray Meghan as a thoroughly modern royal… and give us one of the biggest ratings blockbusters of our existence.”
