    Sorry, can't go to that link, not having yet another stupid app on Facebook. Could you provide the link from the Guardian itself?

    @RenThing, sorry. Edited now.

    Geraldo Rivera can go straight to hell. He should be urging the parents of would be killers to avoid guns.

    Ah that's the easy bit. Lots of people have managed it.

    It's the coming back bit that's tricky.

    You evil fucker. That was akin to a rickroll. I thought for a beautiful drunken second that Osborne had stuck concrete boots on the nasty tory bastard and sent him to sleep with the goggle eyed luminous fishes at the bottom of the deepest ocean. James fucking Cameron.

    Ah, yes. See, this is what happens when you come home from the pub, having read the paper, with a brain full of glossy-faced PM wankers, and read the BBC science news straight away.

    JAMES Cameron. Obviously. But let's feed DC to the abyss-demons at first opportunity anyway.

    Good thing it didn't happen. The whole sea would die.

    More absurdities from the Wacky World of Humankind

    Proving you're gay to the Turkish army: the "Pink Certificate"
    Military service is mandatory for all Turkish men - they can only escape it if they are ill, disabled or homosexual. But proving homosexuality is a humiliating ordeal.
    Gokhan, conscripted in the late 1990s, very quickly realised that he was not made for the army.
    ''I had a fear of guns,'' he reminisces.
    As a gay man he was also afraid of being bullied, and after little more than a week he plucked up the courage to declare his sexual orientation to his commander.
    ''They asked me if I had any photographs.'' Gokhan says, ''And I did.''
    He had gone prepared with explicit photographs of himself having sex with another man, having heard that it would be impossible to get out of military service without them.
    ''The face must be visible,'' says Gokhan. ''And the photos must show you as the passive partner.''

    Similar accusations have been made repeatedly about NDS in the past.

    There's also something very dodgy about a set-up where a company nominally based in Israel gets tax concessions designed to encourage local tech firms and mostly just collects royalties from other Murdoch companies all over the world while most of its actual operations are based outside Israel.
