In an effort to keep all the recent random news threads under control, I thought it might be a good idea to have one thread dedicated to news stories.

This is it!

Feel free to post any news stories that catch your eye - whether they be serious, funny or controversial. :wink:

I see chaos ahead - when there's more than one news item in here + derailed older news.
Worth a try, though.

I was thinking the same thing! :D
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

This is a brilliant story from the Beeb 18 hours ago about a Swedish bloke who tried to build a nuclear reactor in his kitchen. :shock: :lol: :lol:

Very 'Leaky Establishment' (the next door neighbour building a reactor in his back garden)!

I was saddend and then I heard it was a school trip. Suddenly under 18s leaning out of the lorry trying to touch the bear spring to mind...

I do not blame the bear at all. They are dangerous creatures so you stay well clear!

Pretty much Meer. A bit of common sense would save a lot of trouble. Poor Bear was shot.

I'm guessing it was more a case of the bird trying to eat the insects in the pitcher and getting stuck. Silly tit! :(

I think it's more a case of the tit flying happily by when suddenly the plant leapt up and grabbed it then devoured it. :shock:
