America and Sweden lived in 6 English counties?

Blimey, that must have been a tight squeeze.

I don't know what to be more gobsmacked by: an internet show garnering praise like this, or an American remake of a British show actually turning out well! :roll:

What a moron. I detest football, but I always like to hear the State of Origin results. And this guy should have been fined for visual pollution.

I can think of a few programs online more entertaining then most of whats on tv. I personally think Hulu's "The Booth at the end" deserved the praise more, but whatever.

Times are changing, and I expect to see things like that far more often. people now have at their finger tips all the tools needed to do what takes "professionals" millions of dollars or big studios or corporate sponsors to do. Music as good as any studio (hell, even covers better then the originals), effects as good as big movie post production houses. editing and animation tools on the same level as professionals (or in some cases the exact same programs).

Not to say there isn't a benefit in getting paid to do that stuff :shifty:

An Arkansas man who has no feeling from the waist down woke up to a grossly game of fetch with his dog after he realized the animal had eaten one of his testicles.

The 39-year-old man told police he typically sleeps nude and awoke from a slumber Monday morning to a “burning pain” in his midsection, according to KAIT in Poinsett County, Arkansas. That’s when he noticed his dog was between his legs with blood on its snout and paws. He quickly realized the animal had chewed off one of his testicles as he slept.

The man told police he rescued the “small, white, fluffy” dog as a stray just weeks ago. He wasn’t sure if the animal was up to date on its vaccinations. Officials took the dog to a local veterinarian to be euthanized.

The man was taken to St. Bernard's Regional Medical Center (seriously) for treatment.

:shock:

Cue all the men on this forum crossing their legs!

I've been hearing about this genius (roll for Detect Sarcasm) for the past few days. Some idiot in Ipswich (Australia) has been making explosives, and injured himself and his housemate in an explosion. Apparently the police have been carefully combing his house, setting off controlled explosions as they went. They even had to do one in the kitchen 'cos they couldn't shift the explosives there.

He's a Darwin Award on the make, as I heard that he's suffered groinal injuries. :roll:
