I thought it was coat hangs itself, that would be useful

Mines the self-hanging coat

Cows can't detect earthquakes: Official


yes they can

I am sure they would detect an earthquake if a cowshed fell on them.

They stand in a field where nothing can fall on them. What do you expect them to do? Phone their friends on their moobile phones.(Sorry)

Forget Google rationing: Only lighting farts can save the planet


Its not mammals that are the worst

Insects are the biggest creator of methane. OK one ant fart is tiny but there are billions of them compared to the number of mammals.


UK scientists hit by lack of brains


A pint of Brains?

"A pint of Brains please, barman". Of course I mean Brains SA available in hostelleries in South Wales.

Columbia disaster 'not survivable', NASA concludes


Its not the fall that kills you

Stating that ground impact would be be the ultimate cause of death is obvious. in a fall from a great hight it's not the fall that kills you, it is hitting the ground at the end that does it

Boffin brings 'write once, run anywhere' to Cisco hijacks


Agree with AC

Until Cisco provide updates free like every other company does nobody can update thier IOS. I update my HP switches because I can download the updates easily.

Eating one belgian chocolate will turn me into a girl? I'd better go out and pick a dress from M & S now then. I've just eaten half a box full.

Story withdrawn

I vote for pr0n

Pr0n is for people who can't spell (probably can't read either, they just look at the pictures)

Paris - obviously

Mixed reviews for semen-based recipe book


Bush tucker trial!

Vista SP2 to land in April 2009-ish?

Paris Hilton


"The launch of SP2 will depend on quality"

So it'll never launch then.

Paris, because she launched 1000 ships, but even she would not launch this shite

Anal whitening biz drops one million clams for Vibrators.com


Stealth farts

If there are no "beneficiaries" why bother to fart at all?

The only use I can see for this fart filter is for astronauts wearing space suits!

Mines the one with the filter in the vent.

Endeavour launch heralds new dawn for piss-drinking


Already had some

Vintage IBM tape drive in Apollo moon dust rescue


IBM could but...

IBM could build a new tape drive from the old blueprints. The trouble is they were scanned and saved to IBM tapes. So they need to build a tape drive to read the data on how to build a tape drive...ad infinitum. Should have used paper tape at least you can read that by eye.

Mankind to detect alien life 'by 2025'


just don't tell the Church

I think it was Asimov who said that if we ever detect alien life all religeons would cease to exist. Man was made in Gods image so in whose image were aliens made?

Sorry I forgot, according to Star Trek all aliens look exactly like man and speak english.

Tombstone for obvious reasons

Next Windows name unveiled: Windows 7


People forget...

That Windows 1 to ME were not Operating Systems, they were GUIs. Therefore NT was the first Windows OS and the new one will be 7. Easy enough really.

BOFH: The Mandelboat virus


Been there-done that

One of the most essential job requirements of a systems admin is to be able to cover their tracks when they make a cock-up. Some years ago when repairing a crashed Netware server I accidently trashed the email router PC. After fixing the server I waited for the first user to say "The email is not working". So I came up with the explanation that when the server crashed it corrupted the email router.

No-one ever suspected the truth.

HP inching away from Vista's bad rep?



I've got a good name for Dell's new Linux, Delux. Do you think I should patent the name and sell it to them?

Right: Which one of you lot invented 'tw*tdangle', eh?
