OK. A little puerile. But this is a very comprehensive resource for those interested, even tangentially, in poop.
For example. Did you know why bird poop is white? Or if there is any way to prevent corn from coming out in your poop?

After the storm..
The Channel 4 documentary on climate change has stirred a lot of impassioned responses. The premise of the programme seemed to be that global warming is a pseudo-communist propoganda exercise against a capitalist existance.
This sort of stuff goes down well the the Telegraph and the Mail.
Whether true or otherwise, the program grossly and deliberately misrepresented the science, as you can see here.

Once again I reiterate my confusion about environmentalists' obsession with flying.
This time it's flights to Newquay.
To cut a long story short, the relative carbon costs are
Train : 0.02 tons of CO2
Car : 0.08 tons of CO2
Flight : 0.1 tons of CO2
It doesn't make sense to me to focus on the relatively infrequent flights when surely there are bigger fish to fry.

The evening was salvaged by Wogan announcing the wrong winner at the end of the show and by Scooch's lead singer saying that there "is a gap in the market for pop music". He's mistaken. There is no market for this utter shite.

Thanks Al. This led to this little gem : George Booosh on atheists.
Sherman: What will you do to win the votes of the Americans who are atheists?
Bush: I guess I'm pretty weak in the atheist community. Faith in God is important to me.
Sherman: Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?
Bush: No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
Sherman (somewhat taken aback): Do you support as a sound constitutional principle the separation of state and church?
Bush: Yes, I support the separation of church and state. I'm just not very high on atheists.
I think the highs used to be cocaine.
It is deeply depressing that the President of the most powerful country in the world is held in such thrall by bronze age fairy tales that he doesn't think that talking-snake deniers should be considered as citizens.

From the BBC
"US singer Justin Timberlake has been denied official recognition in his home state of Tennessee because of the racy titles of some of his songs."
And the titles that have caused offence? "SexyBack" and "Rock your Body".

.. writes an article for the Guardian.
"I come from Bristol, a city undergoing lots of redevelopment. They are choosing a new name for the city centre and I was excited because I'd heard the front runner was Merchant's Quarter. Naturally I presumed this was my reward for my hilarious TV work and for helping to finally put Bristol on the map. Imagine how horrified I was to discover it was actually Merchants' Quarter. It had nothing to do with me. It was a nod to Bristol's merchant trading past. Still, I reasoned, I could tell people it was named after me. No one in the west country understands apostrophes."

"In what is becoming a trend among conservative Christians in the United States, girls as young as nine are pledging to their fathers to remain virgins until they wed, in elaborate ceremonies dubbed 'Purity Balls.'"
"Many fathers at the ceremonies also slip "purity rings" around the finger of their misty-eyed daughters or offer them "chastity bracelets" and other jewelry that the girls can entrust to their husbands on their wedding night."
Sick, sick puppies.

* Steve McClaren looks like this after a 2-0 win.
* Frank Lampard scores via a deflection off four players, beats his chest and Jamie Redknapp smugly informs us that he's silenced his critics.
* McClown makes a point of giving Wayne Rooney a very public hug or a manly clap on the shoulder, to prove that they're as close as Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams.
* Steven Gerrard sets up a goal from the right wing, thus proving he should be used out there rather than in his proper position.
* Aaron Lennon, ditto, left wing.
* England have 76% possession.
* During which time 76% of you fall asleep. Even if you're in the pub.
* Someone scores a free-kick, and we're informed no one misses David Beckham.
* Stewart Downing is brought on for Aaron Lennon in the 65th minute. Does little of note.
* Rio Ferdinand jumps on the back of the a goalscorer like they've just netted in the World Cup final against Brazil, rather than hit the second in a turgid match against an amateur side.
* Wayne Rooney is booked for dissent over a throw-in.
* Owen Hargreaves is named man of the match for containing the rampaging Andorrans.
* Star-struck Andorran players ask to swap shirts. Three move into Frank Lampard's.
* Half of the commentators' sentences begin "With the greatest respect to Andorra..."
* The rest inform us that Micah Richards is 'athletic', John Terry is 'brave' and there are so many England fans there "it's like a home game".
* Someone from the England camp tells us the win is a "statement of intent".
* Someone in the Russia camp dies laughing.
* Andorra have one easy chance after a ridiculous piece of England defending. They miss it.
* Steve McClown tells us that "someone who watches a lot of international football" says it's the best win over Andorra in March ever. Well, since 2002.
* Three journalists are blinded by his smile.

According to the Pope

Ha, ha. Yeah. He doesn't proffer any evidence, or reason to believe. But, hey, who are we to ask? We're not infallible after all.
Unbelievably he starts quoting the bible as if that supports his argument! I think I'll need something a bit more substantial than that for goodness sake.

Firefox continues to be a mixed bag. Invaluable extensions (firebug!) and features just outweighing ongoing performance and memory usage issues.
Anyway, follow the link : Keywords. Very useful indeed.
I'm tired of the complacency of the firefox community. There are, and have been for months and years, issues with performance. I have come very close to deserting to internet explorer - and I never thought I'd say that.
The excuse that it may be extensions causing the unreliability does not wash. If it's an extension, firefox should be telling us which one and disabling it - not blindly using up all of my processor and RAM.
