Some of us, however, for reasons best known to ourselves, insist on screwing it up once we have found it. The secret, or at least part of the secret, is learning to be in love long after the exhilarating feelings of falling in love have subsided.

Divers find survivors aboard Costa Concordia

Kim Says this is Funny!

Rescue divers searching the stricken cruise ship, Costa Concordia, have found two survivors within the wreckage of the stricken cruise liner.

The two men from Glasgow, Scotland, were found alive and well in one of the bars aboard the ship.

However, when approached by the rescue divers they told their rescuers to “F*ck Off!” and leave them alone as they had pre-paid for their drinks for the entire voyage.

Too soon?
