    I agree, its a news story involving sex, guns, south africa, a hot blonde and an angry superfast cripple. What more do you need?

    And from Frankie Boyle:

    Frankie Boyle ‏@frankieboyle The tragedy is that if Oscar Pistorius had no arms, this would never have happened

    So Oscar your defense will be that you thought you were being robbed by a 6 foot blonde female model?

    Yes.

    I see.

    Exactly! He doesn't have a leg to stand on in court, how he will ever walk away from this tragedy.

    Can't link on my phone but John Cleese is in hot water after breaking his month long Twitter silence to make a Oscar Pistorius joke. Something about Oscar's best defense is that he was absolutely legless at the time of the shooting.

    Perhaps this does deserve its own thread. First appearance tomorrow and funny business is looking likely.

    A good example of how dumbed down modern news has become is this story:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21461779

    Every single report I've heard as felt the need to tell us that Heinz are famous for beans and ketchup. What kind of person wouldn't know this?

    Check out the Astronomy thread for unreal sonic boom vids of that Meteor.

    This is my favourite so far.

    Its the same thing that happened in tunguska, fact fans. A meteor falls and then explodes before it hits the ground.

    Apparently, it happens more than you would think, at least once a year.

    I thought Tunguska was caused by Tesla's super-weapon :p

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Yeah, the Tunguska airburst was quite a special one though wasn't it? Lots of fragments at high-speed detonating in the air.

    The video on the Sun page shot from the car is crazy.

    This signature intentionally left blank.

    Hmm, I'd assumed the 'explosions' here were actually the reverse sonic booms as the now fragmented meteor parts decelerated through the sound barrier. But on the news just now they reported that it was unsure whether the damage was caused by the meteor exploding, or it hitting the ground - no mention of sonic booms at all.

    On seeing that headline, I wondered for a moment what the famous manufacturers of brown sauce had done to upset Mr Checker :)

    In other news, a slimy Tory lord who got done for fiddling his expenses successfully sued the police for a separate arrest related to other expenses dubiousness, and wins. I don't know the full details of this, but my first instinct is that it smells awful dodgy to me.

    Isn't the ITCCS the equivalent of an internet petition? They've also tried to put the Queen on the stand of their non-existent court.
