    (Sorry for the Daily Fail contamination but it was either this or The Daily Star.)

    Woman cuts off a tattoo of her cheating ex-boyfriend's name with a scalpel and mails the skin to him
    With no anaesthetic and using only a bottle of Vasocaine numbing spray to halt the bleeding, Miss Reynolds made a rectangular incision around the tattoo. Afterwards, she used the tweezers to peel back the corners.

    @ Michael Nimmo: So tempted to adopt ""Escroto" as a username now, damn it.

    After studying five crocodilian species on Africa, Australia and North America, the team found that the reptiles can climb as high as six feet off the ground.


    Australia: NOT EVEN ONCE.

    You might've missed it, cause it's not being widely reported, but there's been a firmware update for iOS devices released that fixes a pretty massive security hole.

    Essentially, if you're using public wifi it's possible for someone to do a 'man in the middle' attack and lift whatever happens to be going back and forth between your phone and the internet.

    @Oldhat: That is how I really think of Harold Ramis: The laid-back geek comedian on the old (OLD!) SCTV show. In the NYC area the half-hour version ran just before Saturday Night Live, and was almost always funnier and tighter.

    It was very satisfying to see how Ramis moved from mostly-actor to mostly-producer, cranking out brilliant, funny movies.

    Damn.

    You might be excused for thinking that GCHQ was a group of maverick mathematicians and cryptanalysts, who fight expansive fascist states but breaking codes like Enigma and Lorenz, and pre-emptively discover public private key encryption like it was nothing.

    You are probably right, they were. However, now, they are just a bunch of cunts.

    Egyptian military scientists claim they have invented a device that detects and cures AIDS. World reacts with understandable scepticism:
