Meet The World’s Shortest Couple

5

The world’s shortest couple – who both measure less then three feet tall – have proved that size doesn’t matter when it comes to love.

Paulo Gabriel da Silva Barros and Katyucia Hoshino, from Brazil, both have forms of dwarfism and stand at 34.8in and 35.2in respectively.
The pair, who hope to enter the Guinness Book of World Records, said they met on a social media website ten years ago and started chatting on MSN Messenger.

 

Paulo, 30, who has a rare genetic condition called diastrophic dysplasia dwarfism, said it was love at first sight for him.

‘I FOUND HER VERY BEAUTIFUL FROM THE FIRST MOMENT I SAW HER,’ HE SAID

But the attraction wasn’t mutual. Katyucia, 26, who has achondroplasia dwarfism, which affects bone growth, initially blocked him on the instant messaging site.

SHE SAID: ‘THE FIRST TIME I STARTED TALKING TO PAULO, HE WAS REALLY ANNOYING. HE HAD CHEAP-PICK UP LINES.’

Paulo, who works as a legal secretary, said:

‘SHE THOUGHT I WAS TRYING TO FLIRT BUT I WAS JUST BEING NICE. ACCORDING TO HER I WAS A REALLY BORING GUY.’

That would have been the end of the matter, if Katyucia hadn’t suddenly decided to unblock him 18 months later.

Katyucia, who now owns her own beauty salon that has been specially adapted for her size, said:

‘ONE DAY SOMETHING HAPPENED IN MY HEAD AND I WENT AND UNBLOCKED HIM. BY THEN HE WAS ALREADY MORE RELATABLE.’

REVEALED! Why Cristiano Ronaldo Doesn’t Like Playing In Black Boots

REVEALED! Why Cristiano Ronaldo Doesn’t Like Playing In Black Boots

Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t like wearing black boots because they make him look slow, according to an official from Nike.

The Real Madrid star has been wearing Nike footwear since his career began in Portugal at Sporting and has since become the leading star for the sportswear company.

Ronaldo now has his own CR7 range but it’s been revealed that the 31-year-old has a preference for brightly coloured boots.

‘I think he’s amazing, but he’s the first to say ‘I can improve’. He says he can get better and will do his part, but he needs us to do ours too,’ Max Blau, the vice-president for Nike Football Footwear, told Goal.

‘That puts a lot of pressure on us. We have to come up with something to help him. That’s how we came up with the new Mercurial Superfly [the boots Ronaldo currently wears].

‘Every player has their favourite colour, and it’s been scientifically proven that the colour of the boots activates chemicals in the player’s mind.

‘When you feel better, you play better. The main reason of the colour is to give confidence.

‘For example, Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t like to wear black boots because he says black looks slow and he wants to feel fast.’

MMM Nigeria:. 7 Reasons Why The Ponzi Scheme Is Not Coming Back

Reasons Why The Ponzi Scheme Is Not Coming Back

1. There’s no central account. This implies that the so called Mavros are simply electronic money. Everyone waiting to get help had provided help which they paid directly to other people in the past. They themselves argue that there’s no central account. If there’s indeed no central account where is their matured mavro? In the cloud?

2. I believe the system calculated that the get help overwhelmed the provide help. This overload may have happened a month ago and the system had no option than to shut down.

3. Unless new entrants provide enormous help in January, there’s no way the get help group can recoup their money and that happening is very unlikely. The only way out is for the scheme to ask those whose monies are trapped to provide help again. That’s akin to what happened in South Africa and Zimbabwe and we well know where they are now.
