“Recently Hawking made some comments in an interview about a brain booster that would become the ‘biggest event in human history'”
This news is breaking on the Web today so I’m not sure if it’s for real or not but if it’s on the telly tonight on BBC news then this is quite a discovery..
e.g. “”I used to work in a small supermarket and we had a lady return a
disposable barbecue because ‘it’s just got lumps of black stuff in it.’
She had seen the picture on the front of the box that showed burgers and
sausages on it and assumed they came with the barbecue.””
I’m just off to Morrissons to get myself one of these now ..
“Here are few moments when dogs were dominated by cats and they are struggling to regain their kingdom.”
“It all started in 1965. There were about 500 entries back then, but now,
more than fifty years later, it attracted almost 50,000 of them from
professionals and amateurs from 95 countries. All images are rated in

Most of you have probably not noticed but I totally disabled the comments code for this site last week so no new comments can be posted I’m afraid.

“To some this is the cruelest of all the basic fears.
“NECROPHOBIA – THE FEAR OF DEATH”
The reason is obvious. The terrible pangs of fear associated with the thought of death, in the majority of cases,may be charged directly to religious fanaticism. So-called “heathen” are lessafraid of death than the more “civilized.” For hundreds of millions of years manhas been asking the still unanswered questions, “whence” and “whither.”Where did I come from, and where am I going? During the darker ages of thepast, the more cunning and crafty were not slow to offer the answer to these questions, FOR A PRICE. Witness, now, the major source of origin of the FEAR OF DEATH.”
“Google collects all available information on the various services, with
the excuse to send targeted advertising and facilitate data searches on
the Internet. However, a new tool called “My activity” to analyze and
configure the information stored by Google about you .”
It’s a new tool that I reckon Google have probably been ordered to create by some legal court decision somewhere. Article linked above explains more but the actual tool and granular settings are here
Billed as ‘Examples of why people get fired’, there are some funny ones here 🙂
