I've tagged the story with a link back.

It's fair enough that SFO had no idea this was the etiquette.

George W. Bush is the most written about topic with 2044 stories, but he's soon to be overtaken by Barack Obama (currently at 2021 stories). The next most popular topic is Soccer (1336), then The Spoof (928 ) and, at no. 5, Britney Spears (796 stories).

Okay, maybe they're not the best examples, hopefully you can come up with some better ones.

Contraception myths 'widespread'

A UK survey has revealed that myths about contraception may be widespread.

One in five women said they had heard of kitchen items, including bread, cling film and even chicken skin, being used as alternative barrier methods.

A variety of unsafe and unproven methods might still exist in modern Britain.

Dr Annie Evans, Women's Health Specialist at the Bristol Sexual Health Centre, said: "It is not surprising, given that Britain continues to have the highest unintended pregnancy rate in Europe."


I've heard that the moon is made of cheese and that the Earth is flat. It wouldn't put me off going on a round the world cruise, nor encourage me to take a trip to a lunar fromagerie.

Here's a you tube clip.

It's a long-standing joke that Vic always interferes with the woman to his right. The leg rubbing thing is usually as far as it goes, but I think the underpants thing is funny

How was Jack Dee?

I've never seen him do stand-up, only on TV, mostly quiz shows, except that god-awful show where he had a Polish cleaner (that's all I remember from it). I never find him all that funny, but to get where he is, he must be...either that, or he really does suck.

Richard Pryor is a legend. I'm so jealous you saw him live.

Never heard of Jeff Dunham, I will look him up.

I've seen two live comedy shows recently. One was the Chuckle Brothers in their Chuckle Trek show at Blackpool Winter Gardens, and I saw Bill Bailey doing stand-up at The Lowry in Manchester.

The Chuckle Brothers were, as always, terrible - but still funny all the same. They're a duo, and their claim to fame is the Chucklevision slapstick comedy children's TV show.

In the shows Paul, the taller one, gets a hairbrained scheme, Barry, the shorter one, usually sees the flaws in the scheme, but goes along with it anyway, and chaos usually ensues. It's pretty much like Laurel and Hardy meets the 80s. It's a good programme.

They're getting a bit old now, and fat, and they had too much makeup on - Paul looked like he should've been doing Aladdin.


Bill Bailey is a stand-up comedian, musician, and actor.

His stand-up show was based on his Tinselworm tour, but had quite a lot of new stuff thrown in. It was, as always, very, very funny.

What was interesting though, was the cross-section of society which was in the audience. I had a couple of glue sniffers sat next to me (they may have been art students I suppose), sat two rows in front were a group of chavs, in front of me was an old-ish looking business man, behind were some normal looking thirtysomethings, and that pattern sort of resounded around the auditorium.

Pretty special how comedy brings people together.

I had a great moment too where I laughed when no-one else did. And it was the biggest guffaw you ever heard.

Bill's real name is Mark - like me

Things like this kinda irk me: Children with ADHD allowed to "queue jump" at theme parks.

I can appreciate that the symptoms of ADHD must be really crippling for some, but from what I can tell, in the main, they're just badly behaved children who need straightening out.

I think the South Park episode Timmy 2000 satirises this nicely.

This inflection thing really drives me to distraction.

I've even seen an Aussie write question marks at the end of sentences which are quite obviously statements.

It beggars belief!

I've noticed it creeping in here too. In estate agents especially.

"This is the living room, which is a good size?"

"Yeah, you're right, it is a bit small, I won't take it."

Radcliffe pulls out of marathon

"...it is very important to me that I come back to racing often and winning at 100% and continue strongly and successfully through to London 2012."


It annoyed me that in the 2008 Olympics, she had an injury and it wasn't expected for her to compete, but in an act of pure arrogance and selfishness she decided to run,:

She admitted that were it not for a chance to win her first Olympic medal she might have pulled out long ago.

"Of course, I could do with a bit more time, but (I'll) just go in and give it a go. That's a hundred times better than watching on TV," she said.


By choosing to compete, for her own glory, she forced out other British hopefuls such as Hayley Haining, Liz Yelling and Mara Yamauchi.

Lame horses certainly don't get to compete in running races - why should she get a chance London?
