I saw these two incredible surreal news stories on the BBC News website:
- Man sues Apple claiming iPhone turned him gay
A Russian man has launched a lawsuit against Apple, claiming an iPhone app turned him gay.
He says this comes after an incident involving GayCoin crypto-currency.
Saying he suffered moral harm, he is asking for one million rubles (£12,000), according to a copy of the complaint seen by the news agency, AFP.
Homosexuality was decriminalised in Russia in 1993, but anti-gay prejudice is still widespread.
- Stoke-on-Trent bride has dad’s ashes put into wedding nails
Nail artist Kirsty Meakin put Mick Barber’s ashes in clear acrylic on his daughter’s nails
A bride whose dad died four months before her wedding still had him with her on the day after his ashes were incorporated into her acrylic nails.
Charlotte Watson and her husband Nick brought their wedding forward when Mick Barber’s cancer spread.
When he died shortly before the big day, Charlotte’s cousin, who works as a nail artist, had the idea to use his ashes in her design.
“It really felt like he was there,” said Charlotte, from Stoke-on-Trent.
Charlotte’s cousin Kirsty Meakin, a nail artist and YouTuber, said: “The ashes were in a little glass pot and we looked through them and picked the pieces we thought would work.”
“It was a bit surreal – these were the ashes of my uncle Mick. I felt slightly detached from it at certain points because otherwise I’d have been a blubbering wreck,” she said.
“It was only when it was completed it sank in what it was. That her dad would be holding her hand on her wedding day.”
Charlotte said she “couldn’t believe” the finished result, which was a pink, grey and white design finished off with gems.
Her dad was included in the day in many other ways, including in pictures on the back of her shoes, in a pendant attached to her flowers and a teddy made from one of his jumpers and a pair of jeans.
