    Anyone get any weird Facebook emails yesterday? Looks like something tried to register my old email address. Anonymous or just paranoid?

    Myself and a friend were both "accessed" from distant parts of the US. Either Facebook's confused or some kind of massive hack is underway?

    I've never watched it (allergic to ITV) but does this show accept suggestions from the public on ways to humiliate/persecute/torture contestants?

    Nadine Dorries MP 'set to be in I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here'

    For those of you lucky enough to be unaware who she is, "Mad Nad" is as close as the UK gets to having our own Michele Bachmann. Even The Daily Mail dislikes her.

    I got an email from Facebook saying they were sorry I had failed to access my account. It's actually my back-up, fake account that I haven't used for about a year anyway.

    So Colorado gets the pennant because of timezones, then.

    Oh, cool! Last night the buzz was that Colorado was getting it but Washington wasn't. I guess that call was premature. Nice.

    I was surprised it didn't pass here in Oregon as well. Maybe next time.

    @Fishelle: Well, of course. That's where Obama will send NRA members, people who love Jesus, and grandma after she is ruled Disposable by a death panel.

    One of their stated goals is to "establish a human presence in deep space." I mean, yes, right, duh, but god damn if that doesn't make me bounce on the couch a little, just reading it.

    I hope the budget dollars are there to fund these expeditions. I would love to see an asteroid mission.

    Four African teenage girls create urine-powered generator

    Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which cracks the urea into nitrogen, water, and hydrogen.
    The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
    The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
    This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.
    1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.


    I wonder about the efficiency : you still have to feed it electricity to extract the hydrogen in the first place, right ?

    David Petraeus resigns as director of the CIA, citing an extramarital affair. I've heard a lot of people saying this has more to do with the possibility that he may have let slip some rather confidential information to his lady friend.

    EDIT: Hah! Nice call, Kay.

    @Alan, yeah, from what I hear it's common for people in the intelligence industry to get fired over affairs like this. There's always a possibility of information getting leaked so the gut reaction is to fire someone.

    Yep. Can't have anyone getting blackmailed over this sort of thing. Man, what a way to go, though.
