Top politicians' first ladies in a picture - one detail makes the Internet react.

Brigitte Trogneux (Frankrike), Emine Erdogan (Turkiet), Gauthier Destenay (Luxemburg), Melania Trump (USA), Mojca Stropnik (Slovenien), Drottning Mathilde (Belgien), Thora Margret Baldvinsdottir (Island), Ingrid Schulerud-Stoltenberg (Norge), Desislava Radeva (Bulgarien) och Amelie Derbaudrenghien (Belgien).
Hilarious:)

I see 2details that might be it. One is that a first lady? And the other is understandable.

Perhaps there are 3 details.
Which loser "top" politician's first lady dressed in black is standing next to Queen Mathilde from Belgium in the white and red dress?

btw. Do you notice that all are from Europe?

BA's computer system crashes world wide on Bank Holiday weekend

The BBC's Phillip Norton is at Rome International airport, where he has been waiting to fly to London. He said BA staff were unable to say how long delays would be, telling him "all flights are grounded around the world".
BBC
From the same BBC link (which has been updated several times):

There have been suggestions that an overnight database upgrade caused this computer crash but it's not been confirmed.

The GMB union says the problem could have been avoided if BA hadn't made hundreds of IT staff redundant and outsourced their jobs to India at the end of last year.

Yes, the union has a big axe to grind, but still, people will want to know if BA made its IT systems more vulnerable by scaling back computer support to save money.
"We're still awaiting an explanation."

Geez...

British Airways 'caused Bank Holiday chaos by sacking staff and outsourcing IT jobs to India'
The GMB union said the disruption could have been avoided if the airline had not cut ‘hundreds of dedicated and loyal’ IT staff
UK Media: Heathrow Hell - IT Outsourcing to India is Behind the Airport Chaos - When Will it Ever End?
“The GMB union said the disruption could have been avoided if the airline had not cut ‘hundreds of dedicated and loyal’ IT staff and contracted the work to India in 2016.”
“British Airways’ global IT crash caused Bank Holiday travel misery for a second day today as unions blamed the airline for sacking staff and outsourcing IT jobs to India.”
“Tens of thousands of people were stranded, families slept at airport terminals on yoga mats and some were forced to cancel half term holidays.”
"Experts predict the disruption could continue for several days."

There lies the problem.
It takes time to outsource IT systems.
And a lot of know how get lost in the meantime.

Never.
New managers will come along and ignore the errors of the past. "We know how to do it properly". Then watch it all fall in a heap, yet again.

Yep, as the national carrier they have to be seen to be doing so. Power systems do sometimes fail., but there is no excuse for backup systems not working properly.
Top UK managers cut costs as the backup system was declared redundant!
<ed>Change UK for Spain! Forgot they sold out to IAG, hq Madrid and are not a real flag carrier anymore.

LOL It's so funny:)
Backup systems are redundant per definition!
IT systems need them in case something goes wrong so they can restore them.
Sigh...

2 arrested for trying to force alligator to drink beer
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Two men who admitted to blowing smoke into a young alligator's mouth and pouring beer down its throat have been charged with harassing wildlife.

State Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman Kyndel McConchie said Friday that 20-year-old Joseph Andrew Floyd Jr. and 21-year-old Zachary Lloyd Brown admitted to officers that they picked up the alligator after they saw it crossing the road.

McConchie said the two Ridgeland men also acknowledged posting photos of their actions on social media.

Authorities said Floyd told officers they released the alligator and watched it swim away in a nearby pond.

The misdemeanor charge of harassing wildlife carries a maximum fine of $300.

I would have thought that 75,000 stranded passengers, missing holidays, weddings, honeymoons, family reunions etc was not funny at all. Nor will the compensation bill be, estimated to be at least £100 Million, and £500 Million has been knocked of the value of the IAG holding company. Although there is no accounting for others sense of humour, which seems particularly lacking in certain parts of Europe.

I was thinking of project managers.
And they are all over the world.
Have you met them?
I have.

Don't make him angry... you won't like him when he's angry! Flash Gordon and the Incredible Hulk have to be separated by fans after the two actors get into a blazing row at London's Comic Con
Photos and Video included with article...

Fans were forced to separate a fight between Flash Gordon and the Incredible Hulk after the giant actors clashed at London's Comic Con.

Sam J Jones, who played Flash in the 1980 film, and Lou Ferrigno, famous for his role as Hulk in the 1970s TV series, got into a blazing row while signing autographs and posing for photos.

It is not clear why the pair were arguing, but it took a comic-lover to intervene and tell the actors to 'act like adults and grow up'.
