Where will this end, next thing you know they will be crossing toads and hippopota-ALL GLORY TO THE HIPPOTOAD!

This has been previously covered


"The researchers justify continuation of these experiments with a lot of fancy talk about tracking the genetic markers and learning how to create stable, transgenic monkeys for future experiments. But, in the end we all know that, like us, they really only wanted to throw decadent and hilarious monkey raves. "

All they need to do is pay the regulators, wait for them to leave, whack them with a baseball bat and retrieve their money.

"pledged developers wouldn't be hit by “surprises along the way”."

That's the problem with expecting the unexpected, it often doesn't go according to plan due to unforeseen circumstances.

Speaking as a non-coat wearing Weegie

My theory is it's down to mental fortitude. Living in Glasgow where it is almost permanently cold and wet you have one of two options. Either

A) Step out the door with a mind-boggling array of coats, fleeces, scarves, snoods, boots, thermals, brollies, gloves, windbreakers etc in a pathetic and doomed attempt to stay warm and dry


B) Man up, accept your fate and live with it.

P.S. I have one thing to say to the guy who outrageously suggested that there are, in existence, 'bonny lassies' in Aberdeen - Pictures or it never happened.

They might infect your computer but at least they didn't support the Nazis in the 30's.

Snipers - Cowardly assassins, or surgical soldiers?

Reminded me of a quote from a Faux News (i think) interview with a sniper.

Aussie has answer to save Earth from asteroid attack

Mark Duncan

This was solved in the 60s

Clearly what is required is a small triangular spaceship which fires lasers out it's nose, is capable of 360 degree rotation and has a thruster. While bigger asteroids may require hits to break them up i'm confident that at 270m one shot should be enough to vapourise it

Hint of next PS3 spied on web

Mark Duncan

I think everyone might be missing the most important point

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned that PS3 games come on blu-ray disc and therefore to remove it would make playing games on it impossible.

The Christmas Console Wars: round one to Xbox?

Mark Duncan

Only as good as it's games...

In the last generation of consoles I was an admitted PS2 fanboy. When the time came to join the next-gen a quick scan of review scores on gamespot and gamespy made my decision to purchase a 360 easy. For example head over to gamespy just now and take a look of games that have been tagged 'editors picks'. The 360 has 23 while the PS3 has 6. I personally think the PS3 is a superior machine but it could be a powerful as a bag full of Cray's but if there are only 6 great games I'm going to tire of it quickly. I expect and hope the PS3 mounts a comeback towards the tailend of this generations lifetime because supporting MS in any way is making me feel dirty.

Oh and the Wii is gimmicky nonsense. Sure people will say it's outselling Xbox & PS3 but its a last gen machine you'd be as well saying that a nokia are winning the next gen battle because you can play games on them and more moby phones have been sold than all the consoles combined
