  1. Dodgy links

    can you repair the links in today’s News items.

    The “Square bacteria” story, and the “With history like this, who needs fiction?” story both have the same link (they both point to the Square Bacteria story).

    Any chance you can fix it please.


  2. Hemorrhoids and dinosaurs
    It wasn’t the asteroids, it was hemorrhoids killed the dinosaurs.

    Dubya and his entire cabinet pinched John Titor’s time machine when he was here, then developed the infamous “black triangles”, actually a form of flying time-travel device. Then, they went back in time with a secret black-ops force and slaughtered all the dinosaurs so we would have oil to exploit.

    See? The explanation is really simple when you know the truth.


    “For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong.” H. L. Mencken

  3. Tea Tree Oil
    Works better than any commercial antiseptic I’ve tried, especially on the finger and toenail areas. A couple of months ago, I had a nail infection that resisted everything I tried, until somebody put me onto TTO. The problem was gone in three days, only requiring two daily applications with a Q-tip. The stuff penetrates well, and seems to get right to the source of the problem. There are caveats, so it’s not a panacea, but it worked well for me as a topical antiseptic.

    1. Location, location..
      Yeah, but only if your shed is in a salt mine. 🙂


      “USA Today has come out with a new survey: Apparently three out of four people make up 75 percent of the population.”
      David Letterman

  4. Deflated inflation
    Wouldn’t surprise me a bit to find that the figures are being tampered with – I could see the mutual fund market being systematically pumped before that was discovered. As for the CPI, it’s nonsense; the cost of everything in my world is increasing at a much faster rate than what is published. Creative accounting in the corporate arena has been going on for years, and continues. Why should we expect the government to be any different?

    1. I think it is more to do with
      I think it is more to do with government. Inflation is a government measure of price rises. But they keep changing the products involved in the calculations. More government lies or statistics I think they sometimes call them.
