Now now. Don't make me lash out.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Well, I just saw an article on the same subject on Bigpond News. Now THAT'S a big serving of eye scream! :shock:

Anyway, in lighter news, scientists claim that they are closer to solving the mystery of Stonehenge...

But, because you all want it, here's the freaky-deaky stuff. :twisted: Firstly, Welsh restaurant serves a toddler whisky.

Secondly, American tries to cook a squirrel with improper cooking tools, namely a propane torch, and ends up setting the apartment building on fire.

What about all the friends, family and business associates who were in receipt of this money? Surely they should be held to account somehow?

That was besides my point. She only escaped jail because she was 91 years old. It's like Victor Chang's killer being released because he had Parkinson's disease. :?

But yes, if the friends, family, etc did knowingly receive the embezzled money, they should be held to account.

BTW, the mystery of the eyeball may have been solved.

For the TL;DR crowd, the experts seem to think it has come from a swordfish.

Not the headline that left me speechless, but the kid's name. :shock:


FORT COLLINS, Colo. - A Colorado 16-year-old who has been photographed with 840 animal species says his goal is to get pictures with every animal on the planet.

Tallon Nightwalker of Fort Collins said his quest began when he was 5 and his father took his picture with a bullsnake he was working with at the Fort Collins wildlife sanctuary, The Denver Post reported Monday. The teenager and his father, Bob Nightwalker, said they figure they have about 25,000 more pictures to take.

"There is no doubt this has brought us together," Bob Nightwalker said. "But just as importantly, I think Tallon is helping save many of these animals, many of whom some people have never heard of before." Tallon has posted the pictures, which all feature living animals without barriers between boy and beast, on a Facebook page titled "Tallon Nightwalker's Animal Pictures."

Funny you should mention that. Pokemon was actually based on its creator, Satoshi Tajiri, being an obsessive insect collector as a child.

As for the kid's name, is it me being grossly ignorant, or does that sound like a Native American name (at least the surname)? :think:
