    I like the Aparmtent

    @ben I think this counts as apalmtent, but probably not what she had in mind. Not very secure for the handbags

    In my quest to find a non-French-language collection of Boulet's charming "Raghnarok" comic, I discovered that he does amusing online comics too.





    Shut up about cats!

    You may have noticed that Zynga bought Draw Anything a little while back. How are Zynga planning to make money with this given player numbers are falling off?

    Turns out, they've found a way. Quite possibly one of the most evil genius moments I've seen in gaming for years... Have to admire the sheer cleverness of it.

    Remember folks, if the game is free, you're not the customer you're the product being sold...

    Flabyo:

    Damn, just got into that game - but then again, I can't really see that as evil (although it is Zynga). Unless all the three options are brands or products.

    The Lockheed Blackbird was the fastest and highest-flying aircraft in the world.

    I believe it still is, at least, among manned flights.


    It's rumoured that one was once intercepted by a pair of English Electric Lightnings at 88,000ft*. Unofficially the Lightning flew in excess of 100,000ft.

    *This might actually have been a U-2

    That was a U2, during a NATO exercise in 1984. Interception height was 88,000ft.

    Court stops German artist strangling puppies to death on stage
    Titled Death and Metamorphosis, the performance was to take place this week at a small theatre in Spandau. The artist – who has not been identified – planned to use cable ties to strangle the dogs, followed by a brief meditation accompanied by funeral procession music and a giant gong.

    The performance, reportedly based on traditional Thai performance art, was intended, the artist said, as a protest against the killing of sled dogs in Alaska and hunting dogs in Spain after they are deemed unfit to work.
