It wasn't Blankety Blank that was 3 x 3...

...it was Celebrity Squares (or in the US Hollywood Squares). Blankety Blank would have given you a 3 x 2 layout.

I don't disagree that Blankety Blank was a most superior entertainment.

Hello nasty

Is this the first ever NAND / Beastie Boys mash-up? The perfect partners: why has no-one thought of this before?!

Hate to be a wet blanket - I usually love stories about outback hicks inadvertently removing their idiot material from the gene pool - but I'm really struggling to see the IT or tech angle here.

Not that the story shouldn't have been posted: I'm just disappointed that no such angle was worked in. Doing so doesn't usually seem to give the Reg cadre too much bother, however hilariously tenuous.

Must try harder!

So that's what happened to them! I meant to leave a couple of Werther's Originals, and in my crack-addled state I must have got mixed up. You should have seen the look on the face of the guy who paid a thick wad of used 20s for some boiled sweets, though - priceless.

No? Fair enough. I'll, er, get my coat.

"We'll determine future uses based on what we learn from this tear"

"Tear" as in the fabric of space-time? Or "tear" as in 'on the face of God'?
