Staying on the theme of high drama I just found this:-

Oh poor birdy.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

See.... how the hell does the rating WORK? I mean the USA had a AAA credit rating all this time.... and when the credit crunch hit way back when, OUR credit rating was crap but WE were the only western country that was in the red and never went into a recession.......

Surprised there isn't more on here about the London Riots. Can't quite believe it myself!

Hope all fellow Pratchett fans in London are safe and as unaffected as possible by this.

Just had a phone call from my Cousin in Enfield.

It turns out the idiots had been tweeting and e-mailing each other all day!
The main shopping street in Enfield has had shops windows cracked as they were made of strengthened glass. The Shopping centre was gated shut so no one could get in there. The rent-a-mob also tried to light a fire in the cemetary but nothing came of that.
The police appeared to be waiting for them and several arrests have been made.

Yeah I saw on the news that the police were using Twitter to track them down. How stupid can you get though using a publically accessible social networking site to plan the violence :roll:

Three of the best headlines I've ever seen.

Sooty apologises for Paul Daniels pizza injury: 'I don't know my own strength'

Pete Doherty "bewildered" by Amy Winehouse death

Alex Reid 'stops cross-dressing for Chantelle Houghton'
