    Would do her. Apart from that, it's not much of a news story really, but it's nice that 2 people have found love.

    Swedes miss Capri after GPS gaffe

    Once they realised their mistake, the couple got back in their car and headed south, the official added.

    Brilliant.

    Superb DG!

    Check this

    Science ponders 'zombie attack'

    I'm not sure what's worse. The fact that they bothered to write this article or that one of their sources is "Professor Robert Smith? (the question mark is part of his surname and not a typographical mistake)".


    Good thing we have Neil!

    "My understanding of zombie biology is that if you manage to decapitate a zombie then it's dead forever"
    Professor Neil Ferguson


    This twat again:

    "On his university web page, the mathematics professor at Ottawa University says the question mark distinguishes him from Robert Smith, lead singer of rock band The Cure."

    Would "Bob" have been too hard?

    Is it me, or is this article completely useless? They could have replaced all that writing with "aye, things were different when I were a lad."

    I'll bet otto's TV has a wired remote control. And even phage couldn't get it to play sound from a 360.

    We were bloody stupid, we went out and spent over a grand on a state-of-the-art widescreen massive fuck-off Sony CRT in 2004, just before flat screens went mainstream.

    Ah goddamnit. Just spent 30 mins searching for the BBC's report on this story, but all I could find was the NY Times. The BBC one even had the nicknames 'Rambo Rabbi' etc. mentioned. Stupid crappy search system.

    Oh, of course, the guy with the gun will be shouting "allahu akhbaaarrr".

    "I asked my mum and she told me I had been made redundant."

    "I felt annoyed and upset."

    Brilliant! All kids should go through this to ready them for life in the real world.

    Fry ends row with Twitter critic

    I'm going to be a journalist: having to write stories like this would really inspire me to work everyday, so much so that I might even do it for free.

    Watch the video "interview" down the bottom of the page. Offers a useful insight about the Liverpool syndicate that won.
