Maybe they've just decided that all websites are evil.

same problem here in USA, must be a nasty virus...


It must be nasty alright. It's been going on too long to be a small glitch - unless they all use Live search at Google and no-one's noticed it yet.

No bother.

Heres another one for you.
My last story came up on google news with the picture of Hitler with the Santy hat beside my story.

Thats not the pic that I chose or appears beside the story on the Spoof.


Yeah, google news uses its own cache of images and picks the one it likes the best.

Anything I search for comes up with "This web site may harm your computer" and I can't access the website I'm looking for when I click on it.

Is this just me or is this affecting everyone?

Yeah, but your Beckman never played American football, he played soccer.

In American football, the NFL minimum salary for a first year player approaches $200,000.


That ain't nothin'.

A Premier League soccer player earned, on average, £676,000 in the 2003-04 season*.

That must've been like $1.3m equivalent at the time.

 
From News Discussion / Deal or No Deal to feature new "explosive" twist

The show certainly needs something to spice it up.

When I was on honeymoon, we got the Italian version of Deal or No Deal in our hotel room.

It was crazy. Some of the boxes didn't even have monetary value, and when the contestant got one of them, everyone went crazy and these crap animated animals pranced across the screen. It was hilarious. I don't know what was in the box. I hope it wasn't a squirrel, and I doubt it was an elephant.

5* for the explosive box.

You know what's also funny? People who race horses to the point of destruction. They must have a really great time killing those animals on the track.

Unlike other mammals, such as dogs, a horse can not survive in humane circumstances on three legs. A broken leg in a horse can lead to complications as the other legs attempt to bear the weight of the horse's body.

It's a brilliantly humane sport.

It's a shame they turned him into dog food. What a waste - that slightly sweet, tender, low in fat, and high in protein meat going to the dogs. It's just not fair.

I hear it makes good salami too.

Sorry for the accusatory tone in my initial message, I wasn't intending to be provocative towards you personally.

I would too, but it's hit-and-miss as to whether the media would have picked up on the story. She'd be just another crime victim.

Elton John on Madge: "Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay £75 to see them should be shot."

He said that four years ago, I guess he's never had a clear enough shot.

He probably can't afford a good enough seat at one of her gigs.

I think it's unfair comparing an amateur shot with a professional studio shoot.

Paul should invite Madge over so he can take a few shots of them together...or maybe get a fourth friend to take the photos and have Paul in a Madge McGee sandwich.

I've got a friend with something that looks like those hanging from his rear-view mirror. Now I'm scared.

Is that your normal method of seduction?

Just curious.

The discussion of pedophilia and sexual deviancy in the catholic church is fair comment.

The depiction of young boys bottoms which are "covered with dried feces" hindering "rivate instruction" takes things too far.

It's not a question of faith, it's a question of decency.

I had a job in a supermarket a few years ago. I remember once this kid (about 14) came up to me and asked me where the garlic was, and he couldn't find the right looking 'ackage'.

So I went with him to the herbs and spices bit and found crushed garlic and garlic salt. He said, looking at me like I'm an idiot, "no, that's not right, it comes in a sort of white package, like a papery sort of thing."

"Do you mean fresh garlic?" I asked.

"Hmmmrumphhnnno," came his reply, "my mum sent me here to get some garlic."

So I took him to the produce section and found him a bulb of garlic.
