by e-mailing [email protected] no longer say Thank you opt for CheersSOURCE: NEWSLITE.TV

Despite the fact that Brits are renowned for their impeccable manners, research suggests saying Thank You is fast becoming a thing of the past. Thats because one in three of us now opts for the less formal Cheers and other Thank You alternatives commonly used include: ta, merci, nice one and cool. But its not all bad news for sticklers of good manners -- it was also found that average person will say thank you nearly 5,000 times a year. And 95% of those surveyed claim manners are important to them while eight in ten Brits believe their own etiquette is spot on. However, 73% of Brits also reveal that the reasoning behind why they say thank you is because they were brought up to do so rather than being genuinely grateful. A spokesperson for Food Network, which commissioned the research said: When it comes to saying thank you, people will always find the way that works best for them and its interesting to see what the act means to different people. The fact that more than a quarter of us choose to say thank you through food highlights that taking the time and effort to say thanks is still very important to us.

NewsWorlds worst football team win... after 17 yearsSOURCE: NEWSLITE.TV

American Samoa -- ranked as the worst international football team in the world -- have finally won their first game after 17 years of trying. The US protectorate have previously suffered some embarrassing loses -- including a 31-0 thrashing by 31-0 and are bottom of Fifas rankings. But following 30 straight defeats the team have this week managed to get a 2-1 victory over Tonga. Reports say the players and coach reacted to the win like theyd just won the Premiership, Champions League and World Cup all at the same time. However, coach Thomas Rongen isnt getting carried away and described the win as part of soccer history okay maybe he was getting carried away.

Pilot locks himself in loo -- prompts terror scareSOURCE: NEWSLITE.TV


Man drags piano up mountain serenades elephantsA mad-capped pianist has dragged his piano up a mountain in Kanchanaburi, Thailand to serenade a group of blind elephants. As you do. 50-year-old Brit Paul Barton -- who played Slow Movement 2 from Beethovens Pathetique Sonata for the beasts -- made the odd bid in order to raise money for charity. He says he hopes to raise enough money to install an electric fence at the sanctuary where the injured and handicapped elephants live. Barton was also quick to point out that the keys on his piano were made from synthetic plastic and that no elephants were injured for the making of his music.

The captain of a flight from North Carolina to New York has caused a terror scare -- by accidentally locking himself in the toilet. Fighter jets were even put on alert after the captain of the Chatauqua Airlines flight disappeared to the loo and didnt come back. And what made it worse was that the co-pilot became suspicious when the captain sent a foreign-sounding passenger to the cock-pit to explain the situation. The captain disappeared. What Im being told is hes stuck in the toilet and someone with a thick foreign accent is giving me a password to access the cockpit, the co-pilot said to air traffic control. However, it didnt quite get to the point of the plane being shot from the sky -- the captain eventually got out of the toilet and landed the aircraft.

Windows 95 startup theme was composed on MacSOURCE: NEWSLITE.TV


Vuvuzela-playing German doctor sued by patientSOURCE: NEWSLITE.TV

It was a sound which greeted millions of computer users and is forever associated with Microsoft Windows -- but this theme was composed on a Mac. Music legend Brian Eno has recently described the process of being hired by Microsoft to create a selection of possible themes for Windows 95. Speaking on BBCs The Museum of Curiosity Eno said the he was given a list of adjectives which the four second piece should convey -- including inspirational, sexy, driving, provocative and nostalgic. Then he revealed that he used an Apple Mac to knock up 83 pieces for Microsoft to choose from before adding the kicker.

A doctor in Germany has apparently been sued by a patient after playing a vuvuzela in front of his practice. The patient claims that during the South African World Cup last summer, the doctor played the annoying instrument near her, causing ear trauma. She is now demanding 4,500 in damages and 700 in compensation and a civil suit is being heard at a court in Augsburg this week. The woman -- who was already suffering from tinnitus -- had been offered 1,700 in damages, but is holding out for more. Well either that or she didnt hear the doctor make her the offer.

Its more pee than Wii for gamers at a bar in London -- where urine-controlled video games have been installed in their toilets. Loo-goers at the Exhibit Bar in Balham get to play games -- including askiing game and a quiz -- every time they go to the toilet. Users (men only) aim their pee in the specially-crafted urinals to control the games which are displayed on LCD screens mounted above. Bar bosses hope the games will not only attract new customers, but that regulars will drink more in order to play longer and set news high scores.
