Sadly I don’t think the Spinneyhead gmail account is of any value to anyone except myself. So no swapping it for a trip to the Olympics, then
They’ve released Ulysses-31 on DVD! For those of you who weren’t kids in the early eighties it was a bizarre Japanese animated series loosely based on Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ (but probably closer to the original than Troy). At the time it was shown I never saw the first episode. Tonight that will be remedied.
I was just in the queue at the local convenience store and the woman in front of me bought �100 in lucky dips on tonight’s lottery. It’s 13.98 million to 1 odds. Truly F.U.B.A.R.
Legitimate licences to remove scrap, such as destroyed tanks, from Iraq are being used to cover the looting of new and valuable items.
Oh, okay, Squirrel Nutkin was a red, and this is actually about putting a bounty on the tails of grey squirrels to encourage a cull. But I couldn’t help myself.
We are all mutants, though, as the article points out, some are more mutant than others.

“Bad people?” All this time I was wondering exactly who it was that made up this organized and apparently multifaceted opposition we were fighting in Iraq – and now I know! It’s the Bad People. So is this what they put on their tactical maps? “Areas marked in red indicate territories inhabited by Bad People. Those you can bomb at will. Areas marked in blue indicate territories inhabited by Good People. Try not to bomb those.”
Variation on a theme. I was going to do a whole list of features, but I think this one’s enough.
Edit Now available on a long sleeved T shirt. I’m going to use comments as a poll. This logo can be made available on the Raglan, and either can be put on one of the other tops. Get voting.
I managed to get the Perfect Sex Toy logo transferred. For now it exists on the “Jr. Raglan” for the laydeez. It’s also available in pink/white and black/white.
I can and will resize the logo for any of the other Cafe Press products (except the dog T-shirt or any of the kiddie items). Putting it on an extra large T shirt for “sleeping” in has already been suggested, so I might sort that out later today. I’m not a premium member, but anyone ordering the T shirt in those colours is never going to get a chance to prove the claim. I think I’m also restricted to one version of each product, so the white T, baby doll, boxers and thong may be out of the question as well.
The sky is falling! Or, at least, the birds are falling from the sky. In China 10,000 bramble finches fell to the earth, most were dead before they hit the ground. In New Zealand, it was gulls (streaming audio).
Still in Kiwi-land, a 25 metre tall geyser erupted in a back garden as boiling water was forced out of a borehole used to supply the house’s hot pool.
Not in itself NSFW, but it does have a prominent ad for a device called the Fleshlight, which is scary, disgusting and probably NSFW.
The Ford F150 is probably called an “urban pickup” or somesuch. It’s for middle class suburban folks who want to pretend they’re macho rural white trash. There’ll never be anything in the back, but the tougher suspension might be necessary to shift their fat arses around. It’s one of, if not the, most popular cars in America and the trend, along with faux off roaders/ SUVs, is heading over here.
Owners will tell you they feel safe perched up there, but anyone with half a brain can see that they’re talking crap. And the photos at the top of this post prove it. In identical crash tests the Mini Cooper’s driver’s compartment stayed intact whilst the F150’s folded in on itself like bad origami. There’s a whole load of stats to back it up as well.
Scroll down to the comments and watch the poor SUV drivers bleat as they try to defend their penis extensions.
Having said all that, I’d still like to own a Land Rover. Though I’d have more sense than to use it about town every day. And I know that these vehicles are built like brick shithouses. I once walked away from an accident where a Landy drove into a dry stone wall (at an angle, not head on) at 20-30 mph. I’d been in the back, without a seat belt on. Admittedly the vehicle rolled onto it’s side and I suddenly found myself standing on the windows, and it was written off, but all three of us who had been in the vehicle got out with little more than bruising.
I’ll be buying a second hand Land Rover, so even if I could afford it, there’s nothing I could do about the company’s current problems.
The kid who plays Harry Potter, sounding awfully mature for his age, has predicted that the character could die at the end of the seventh book.
“We are doing the public a favour by speeding reality television to its ultimate destination.
“After watching paint dry, where can you go next? Although, who knows, it may be very popular.”
The Royal Navy is allowing a team of “ghostbusters” into the Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth, Devon, to investigate possible paranormal events.
Much of the behaviour and command around the Abu Ghraib scandal was on the level of Joseph Heller’s black comedy.
