Make a difference – go out a vote on May 5th, a reason why!

This is probably the funniest flash animation I have seen in a long time. It includes all your favourite stars from modern politics, Blair, Bush, Coward (sorry Howard), Kennedy (legend!), Bin Laden, Blunket, Cooke and a few other suprises… If this doesn’t make you go out and vote then I don’t know what will. http://www.gbjab.com/

Oh I particularly like the intro with Bush and then the Howard rap! 🙂

How to impress women and men

A friend of mine sent me this, I thought it was quite apt.
HOW TO IMPRESS A WOMAN

Compliment her,
respect her,
honor her,
cuddle her,
kiss her, caress her,
love her, stroke her,
tease her,
comfort her,
protect her,
hug her,
hold her,
spend money on her,
wine and dine her,
buy things for her,
listen to her,
care for her,
stand by her,
support her,
hold her,
go to the ends of the Earth for her.

HOW TO IMPRESS A MAN
Show up naked.
Bring food.

The really funny thing is that the police don’t seem to understand how this was possible! Well they didn’t earlier when I was discussed on BBC News 24 – looks as if they are going for “it hit the kerb” solution. Take a look at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/hampshire/4493713.stm

Airbus A380 completes test flight

Is that a bird? Is that a plane, well yes it is – but it is damn big! The world’s largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, completed its maiden test flight today. It has been said to be the biggest thing (not literally!) to have happened to european aviation since concorde! It was even watched by 50,000 – they should have sold tickets and made some cash! For more see: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4488361.stm and here for the pictures.

Pope domain name

It astonishes me at what domains people hog at times, here is the latest example and it has divine implications.
