Will Vlad declare tomorrow that it's all just been a big joke? The purpose was to see how far you can bend people's loyalties and how long you can shaft them for?

Then he'll say that there is no debt and the superstand is coming.

This will be called Phase 2 of the experiment.

Translate for Animals



Making the world's information universally accessible is a key goal for Google. Language is one of our biggest challenges so we have targeted our efforts on removing language barriers between the species. We are excited to introduce Translate for Animals, an Android application which we hope will allow us to better understand our animal friends. We've always been a pet-friendly company at Google, and we hope that Translate for Animals encourages greater interaction and understanding between animal and human.

Ferrets key to bridging the digital divide between cities and rural areas



The animals have been used by Virgin Media for over a year to help lay cables for its broadband service, the company has disclosed.

The ferrets wear jackets fitted with a microchip which is able to analyse any breaks or damage in the underground network.

Sky Sports ran one this morning about referees no longer having to run around as they will be getting those Segway things (two wheeled transportation devices that you stand up on and lean to steer).

Might be a joke but could help them keep up with play.. unfortunately it wouldn't work in Scotland unless they had ones with really fat chunky tires that'd cope with the swampy pitches!

Am I missing something?

Edit: Just realised it's after twelve now so they've probably removed their joke

We had a belter of a one at work today, not that it was outstandingly clever, moreso because they boy we played it on didn't twig. Our top salesman is a prick so we made up a message for him, saying that a customer was interested in buying a 55" LED TV from
him and that he should phone a Mr C. Lyon on 0131...

He just thought it was a coincidence that he must have worked at Edinburgh Zoo :greengrin
