The baby from the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind album is suing the band for sexual exploitation. Good luck, you absolute bellend.

I'm surprised that Blind Faith have got away with it for so long.

She was a bit older and probably had some say.

Wikipedia sez:

Seidemann wrote that he approached a girl reported to be 14 years old on the London Underground about modelling for the cover, and eventually met with her parents, but that she proved too old for the effect he wanted. Instead, the model he used was her younger sister Mariora Goschen, who was reported to be 11 years old. Goschen recalled that she was coerced into posing for the picture. "My sister said, 'They'll give you a young horse. Do it!'" She was instead paid £40.

We "borrowed" the floating baby image for the beginning of an Orange commercial.
We had to airbrush out the little fella's little fella.

The most disturbing thing about the Nirvana story is how anyone could possibly consider the cover porn.
Ron Jeremy charged with 30 cases of sexcrime. Wasn't he getting enough already?

Look on the bright side. Bono could be destitute within months and needing someone to be the charitable pontificating spokesman for him as he sits in the gutter if this business extends to legal action on "Boy".

Does anyone share my concern that Greta Thunberg's instructive appearances this week on social media may well suggest that COP 26 isn't actually going ahead in November in Scotland? Surely if it was really going to be happen she would be at the very least in a coracle padding solo towards Arbroath by now?

Notwithstanding that there are no officially recorded cases of Covid in the Taliban suggesting it is a global self-defeating fake news disease, haven't we also missed the boat so to speak in ensuring the survival of all football clubs as we know and love them? This is to say,as soon as we got to 2021 there was the obvious opportunity to increase the number of teams in the Premier League to 21, rising steadily per year until 2099 when there would be 99 in it? I do feel that this is not too late to be addressed, Where there is the will there is normally a way but as soon as Forest Green Rovers went vegan they put a huge spanner in the works. ,

I doubt anybody does, he's just trying to make a quick buck. It's America, where suing is a way of life.

So which is the best thought-out excuse of the past two years:

a) Driving to a castle to test your eyesight;
b) I don't sweat so it can't have been me;
c) The sea was closed or
d) none of the above

Barnard castle thing.

Journalists challenged/asked MPs/Cabinet members who were defending Dominic Cummings whether they'd test poor eyesight by driving, some said yes they would too, including Cummings' bestie in government, Michael Gove.

The silliest excuse yet came with a sunk cost fallacy, having elected members of parliament telling the public they'd test their eyesight by driving. Presumably with their kid in the car like Dom.

Funny how defending him worked out for them in 2021 Laughing out loud

Does Biden still stand 'squarely behind ' his policy on Afghanistan?

F**king hell - I didn't think anyone could be as dumb as Trump, but he is actually giving it a go

Absolute chaos

Republican, Democrat - doesn't matter, you end up with a stupid bastard in charge

Oh and I genuinely believe Trump will be loving this ...

The court case describes it as sexual exploitation. Horrific.

Afghanistan has now been a unsolvable problem for the British in the 19th Century, the Soviets in the 20th and the Americans in the 21st. Much of this is put down to its unique and hugely difficult geographical terrain. Does anyone agree with me that climate change should not be waged against but rather speeded up so that its mountains all collapse and the entire place turns into a huge iceberg laced ocean?
