I like “stylet” , it sounds at once diminuitive and stylish. Surprised the marketing drones haven't abused it yet.

Lies, damn pies and obesity statistics: We're NOT a nation of fatties
Short, British lives
While I agree there's everything wrong with the BMI, you guys are still fat, especially the girls. And getting fatter all the time. Not a big surprise, considering how the shops sell nearly exclusively processed "food". Don't believe the nice man who says it's all not so bad, you're screwed.
Not pro Bono: Apple's audio junk mail made spammers' lives easier
why this happen?
Lovin the Irish Boy Band joke.
As for why this happened. Last year, when they were about to elect a new pope, I was crossing my fingers that Bono would get it, as it was the position he'd been angling for all his life.
Alas, some other guy got the gig, and Bono was left with nothing, having to look for new ways to penetrate people's butts, and voila: suprise U2 downloads.

Dinosaurs on a diet shed tonnes
Confused by the 21% -- I understood 21% meat for 100% entire animal -- have I got it the wrong way round? When buyinig 1kg chicken, I expect to see more than 210g of meat I think, even if the head and feet are still on, giblets included. Even with an animal that's not optimized for being eaten 21% seems low.

Darn, I should've patented moving the arm in a circular fashion until the flat of the hand loudly contacts the signal-recipient's cheek to indicate that they're WAY out of line. Seems bit late now.
I stand by my opionion that people who attempt to patent gestures will be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.

Mozilla forces Firefox 7 on memory diet
frikkin FF 7
I was happy when I first read FF7 would use less mem. I've got a slow netbook with a gig of RAM, FF was typically eating most of my ram.
Now that I have FF7, as soon as I have a couple tabs open (like 4 or so), the bloody thing starts to use up most of my CPU cycles for long periods of time. Irritating as hell. First I suspected bad JS on specific pages to be the cause, but after seeing it consistently no matter where I browse, I'm thinking it must be the brower itself.
And I'm not sure it really does use much less ram. It does at the moment, because I don't dare open more tabs. Aaaargh.
