Women don’t care for sick men

AFter 5 minutes of caring, women have had enough when their man is sick. They won’t try to care for him, they won’t take time off for him, whereas men tend to care for their women. Yes. Women are cold hearted, egotistical bitches.

The size of the Bailout package

When wind farm subsidies go wrong

Enable emoji

It’s Apple cripples your 2.2 software update but hack it time! This time it’s the emoji, which only Japanese iphones got. So if you want it on your iphone or ipod, try the following: You need to edit the file /User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preferences.plist on the device -> whether you use a jailbreak to achieve this or merely […]

e-gold spanked by US judicial system

In a surprise move, e-gold was dumped on by the US justice system because prosecution stated they must have known crooks were using the system to transfer money. Doesn’t this now mean that all banks in the US have to be slapped in the face, because, well, let’s face it – there are a load […]

[HowTo] Enable Street View on Touch 2.2

Because Apple are dicks and have disabled streetview on the 2.2 ipods in a pathetic attempt to make the iphone somehow more exclusive than the ipod, someone has had to come out and discover how to fix this 🙂 i’ve found the trigger so this is probably the easiest way for the time being… 1. […]

Scientists Turn Tequila into Diamonds

A bunch of Mexican scientists found that the makeup of tequilla is perfect for making diamond film from. The results were amazing, same as with the ethanol and water compound, we obtained almost spherical shaped diamonds of nanometric size. There is no doubt; tequila has the exact proportion of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms necessary […]

Potential Cure for AIDS

Some people have a natural resistance to HIV due to a genetic mutation. Dr. Hütter transplanted a HIV infected patient’s bone marrow with some from an immune person and the HIV virus, surprisingly, dissappeared. Now they’re looking into whether it’s a fluke or not.

Static Stretching

It turns out that static stretching – holding a stretch for 20 + seconds – causes you to lose around 30% of your muscle power. It also doesn’t help limber you up and thereby help prevent injuries. Dynamic stretching – stretching your muscles whilst keeping them moving – is much much better: you don’t lose […]

Mcor 3D printer

Mcor Technologies has a 3D printer which is remarkable in that it uses paper and glue to make the models. This makes the models themselves a whole load cheaper to produce, so you can print MOAR! The printers themselves are going to be sold for a “reasonable” price, whatever that is… They do have the […]

Italy wants to prosecute four Google Execs

Why? Because they own youtube. Which posted a video of a kid with Downs Syndrome being pestered. Why those four execs? No idea, really. Why they think the execs who provided the youtube service are liable for the content on it? That’s like saying knife manufacturers are personally responsible for every stabbing that has ever […]

Saddam Hussein%u2019s body was stabbed

Apparently he was stabbed 4 times in the back and twice in the front, once in the heart, posthumously. Way to keep him dead! I wonder if they buried him in a concrete vault with a stake in his heart and huge signs in various languages telling people to KEEP THE FUCK OUT!

McCain & Obama both hacked

Apparently, during the campaign both camps were hacked and not by each other. According to the FB a third party copied huge amounts of files from their campaign servers. There is some speculation it’s a foreign power that could use the documents to see how decisions are made in the winners camp and use that […]

US Missle Sheild Upgrade

The missile shield will be upgraded by multiple kill vehicles being carried up by as a single payload in a rocket. There are two competing tenders: Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. Lockheed guides the mini rockets from a central command unit, Raytheon’s system has each of the warheads acting as a seeker / controller in theory, […]

Laser Cinema Projectors

Previously lasers weren’t used for projection as they had a speckle effect.
