Lucky for him...

OTHER EARTHS may be orbiting our Sun beyond Neptune

My theory is...

Dark Matter!!

It is used to explain other gravitational anomalies, so why not here?

Re: How do you smoke testicles?

Easy to smoke, just very difficult to light.

Mine's the one with the lighter in the pocket.

'Britain, aka the "land of the free"

America was once the "land of the free" also.

Today, not so much.

Common Sense...

It isn't anymore. Common, that is. Rather than use a bit of common sense and handling the situation rationally, the school official got the police involved. Just plain stupid.

Just this morning I read a story about a 5 year old who killed his 2 year old sister with a 22 caliber rifle he'd received as a GIFT! What sane person gives a small child his own firearm? The mother (I use the term loosely) , who stepped out of the room for a moment, didn't know the gun was loaded. Did I mention the gun was "stored" by leaning it against the wall in a corner?

For some reason the phrase "Going to Hell in a hand basket" comes to mind.

RIP Brave Playmonaut....

I raise a pint in his honor.

However, to the best of my knowledge you folks live on an ISLAND, which infers that it is surrounded by WATER.

With all the flash kit you've added to the payload wouldn't a FLOTATION DEVICE made some sense?

Just asking.

"...but as Vivian Stanshall's Sir Henry Rawlinson once put it: "If I had all the money I'd spent on drink, I'd spend it on drink"."

Being a Merkin I'm not familiar with the author or the character, but Sir Henry sounds like my kind of guy.

re:X2 v Osprey

I think it's the whole making a plane fly like a helicopter in addition to making a helicopter fly like a plane thing. The transition from one to the other is no small feat.

Looking for future 3rd world countries?

If Apple, et al, are looking for 3rd world countries for a future manufaturing site, might I suggest the USofA? By the time they exhaust a few more labor markets the US will have attained 3rd world status (if it hasn't already).

The Welcome mat is out here for job opportunities.

Hasbro unleashes 'Spastic' Transformer

Paris Hilton

Spastic, Spazz, etc.

I'm a Midwest boy and being called spastic or a "spazz" was never meant as a compliment. I'm as much confused as many others to why they associate spastic with a Transformer.

Dazed and Confused (Paris appears that way as well)

I'm 59, yup I'll chance the pics. Considering they were hiking at the time, I'd guess they are pretty fit.

Paris, as I'm sure she hikes in the buff.

You mean they won't have posters of her in every police station and post office?

Router vs. Router??? We in the midwest pronounce the Black & Decker variety and the Cisco variety the same, your "rowter" I guess. How do you pronounce the Cisco variety??

Genius Architect not necessarily = engineer...

There's a FLW home (the May house) in my home town (city). Way ahead of its time and wonderful to look at, but structurally not up to par. After much reinforcing and restoration it is a joy to tour the home. Many times genious' aren't bothered by the details (like structural engineering), unfortunately.

Paris, 'cause she's better looking than the other icons.

"when they have become too fat to walk"...

So the food they consume comes to them how? Either they are motivated to get it themself (Krispie Kreme comment above) or someone provides it. Shouldn't be that hard to fix the problem. Even Pooh got unstuck from Rabbit's door after not eating for a while.

When PH gets "stuck", she doesn't really mind.

On the "left side of the pond" Duck and Duct tape are the same thing ('round here it's duct tape). Gaffer tape is something different. Looks like Duck/Duct but the adhesive is different so the tape comes off clean without leaving a residue.

Mine's the one with sticky stuff in the pocket.

Obviously wasn't a suicide attempt...

If he really intended to kill himself he wouldn't have bothered with the 'chute when he exited the plane.

BTW, a dumbass icon is needed.

Data centers embrace The Great Outdoors

Keeps it cool, but...

How do they keep it clean? Worked in a data center at college (late 60s). Had a cooling breakdown in the computer center and ran most of the winter (in Michigan) with the windows open in the computer room (security? we don't need no stinking security!). Kept it cool, but god the innards of the beast were filthy.

Paris, cause even she knows you've got to keep it clean.

Not Defending GWB...

For some reason "nuclear" pronounced "nucular" is rooted in the 50's somewhere. I grew up pronouncing it incorrectly and worked to correct it. Still slip up from time to time.

Robert, that's a "Get My Coat" icon, not Paris Hilton.

We Americans aren't the only stupid ones it seems.

@Duncan Hothersall

"this approach doesn't work. The guy should be sacked" The guy is the Sherrif of one county. The DUI offenses quoted were for the whole state. At least he's taking a new approach and not just letting the offenders sit on their butts.
