I also subconciously change Sir Leigh Teabing to "Teabagging", probably an automatic response to the book's quality.

A strange but happy place, my head.

The term "Dakota Fanning" sounds like a fetish, but maybe that is just me. I think "fanny" has different meanings on the two sides of the Atlantic. . . No, it isn't that, it is the thought of fanning something nicknamed a "dakota". I checked with Mrs B, she thinks it s...

It is generally best not to ask what is in haggis. The veggie stuff is largely indistinguishable taste wise, but made of nuts, pulses, spices etc. rather than sheep brains and anus. It also comes in plastic (hopefully not carcinogenic) rather than some sheep organ. If all else fails wash it down wit...

Happy Burns Night

Let joy, haggis and bad verse be unconfined. I admire the sentiments, but hate the peotry. I do intend to gorge myself on vegetarian haggis and indulge in a dram or two this evening.

Lang may yer breeks reek!*


(*10 bonus points for anyone who can identify the quote. It isn't Burns.)

Paul of Tarsus is cropping up a lot just now, of course it is the anniversary of his conversion today. On another foum yesterday I posted: "Idly browsing the Internationalhyperweb about St Paul I checked wiki, which tells me (1.15pm, 24.1.07): "Paul of Tarsus (b. c. 10, d. c. 67), the Apos...

It is a tough premise to work with. People whose idea of a parade is to hang a dead goat around their necks and blow into one of the feet until noise comesout the other ones, just don't give me much to work with. But what a wonderful noise it is. Although Mel did give me "FRAYDOM." Thanks...

I thought KOS understood, but explained anyway. It gets used occasionally over here and I've never seen a jew take offence (though inevitably someone will).

Enzo, don't knock kilts or stereotypes. I regularly wear mine while travelling and it is a guaranteed icebreaker.

Thanks hippie , I wondered how the separation of church and state sat with biblical oaths. Now I know. What I don't know is how our smug self-serving selection of arsehats get sworn in. We have a number of muslims, a few hindus, a sikh or two, various catholics, proddys and Red Sea pedestrians; not ...

Wiki lists Palestinian Christians including Arafat's mother-in-law.

Israel gave back Sinai since it is valueless desert that simply extended their supply line, the Golan Heights overlook northern Israel and are too useful militarily.

Bad Science Website

Don't know if any of you have come across this website, Bad Science it is a spinoff from a column in the Gruniad newspaper. It is the science of medicine rather than pure science but most things get touched on. It may be a bit UK-centric, but favourite topics include tv dieticians and a government a...

Re: AC 130 Gunship UP

I heard on CNN that one of our AC 130 Gunships just paid a visit to several suspected al Qaeda positions in Somalia. Sux to be them. Yep. I've highlighted the word that makes me a bit uneasy here. . . I'll second that. The west does not have a good record of hitting the correct targets, or of havin...
