    I wouldn't say "nice"

    It's not like you can just stick some wickets in there and have a lovely family game of cricket!

    I've always wondered why we don't do it Donkey Kong Country style with a series of explosive barrels!

    I want to know how the wooden barrels in Donkey Kong have enough explosive power to propel a 600lb gorilla through the air without destroying the barrel itself.

    Microsoft Surface demo

    Getting a bit Star Trek now. Looks rather great. Pity MS never managed to push these ideas into mainstream. Maybe in time.

    It is just me, or is that a terribly written science article? Sure, I guess it's written for kids but it could at least avoid factual inanccuracy and misleading wording. The edge of the electromagnetic spectrum? It's only got one 'edge', at the bottom. An orbiting spacecraft has just crossed the electromagnetic frontier? I wasn't aware we had an 'electromagnetic frontier' so close to earth for it to cross.

    What that story actually says is they've launched a space telescope that detects gamma rays with energies at least a hundred thousand times higher than those produced by ordinary nuclear decay, and it's found lots of it but we don't yet know what it means.

    @mal - most NASA stories appear to be written that way.

    Shame he couldn't take a few of his crappy movies and bury them while he's down there.

    Dear Mr Cameron,
    I'm very pleased for you on your successful dive.
    Now please stop pissing about and release The Abyss Blu-Ray.
    Yours X201

    When I heard the news of him going solo, I just thought, typical big ego Cameron.

    Nice feat though. Must be really scary. I hope we get to see some new crazy creatures and other new discoveries.

    He looked like Arseface from Preacher beforehand.





    He can chew and smell now. It's amazing.

    Seeing the before picture I'd think he'll be well chuffed. He may look like a GTA: San Andreas thug but he can at least go out in public now.
