    A Bob Geldof says climate change will wipe out man in 17 years time.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    He's just in a bad mood because he doesn't like Mondays.

    As long as Bob Geldof is one of those wiped out I can accept the rest as collateral damage!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Yep, it's used on ships and it's still used for money transfers to and from some countries. Saw one in a bank in Dar es Salaam a couple of years ago, but I think they're phasing them out in favour of this here newfangled internet.

    Under the delayed flight legislation, if your flight is delayed or you are denied boarding, they have to give you two phone calls, emails or telexes.

    British Midland looked blank when I demanded a telex machine when I was denied boarding

    Fukushima worker accidentally switches off cooling pumps, backup kicks in - World News

    Thousands of people in Japan suffering from persistent and unexplained nosebleeds. ...
    Seeing as most of the ongoing problems are caused by concentrated Uranium 235 continuing fission reactions, I wonder if paradoxically the quickest, cheapest and most effective long-term solution wouldn't be wait for an offshore wind and rain, and then simply set off a ground level 10 megaton nuclear explosion to vapourise and disperse the whole kaboodle.

    The snag is that would of course produce a large amount of extra irradiated dust, and cause damage for miles around. But hopefully most dust would soon sink to the bottom of the Pacific.
