I Was A Number...

As I am moving house, (don't ask), I've been having a clear-out, and decided to finally throw out my old university lecture notes. But not before going thru them one last time, mainly to remind myself what a lazy bastard i was. It was a harrowing read!
Came across an old gem though... one of my lecturers, well quite a lot of them really, was a stuffy old tweed-wearing mutton-chopped curmudgeon, (well it was pure mathematics!), who i loved. He had a penchant for saying 'Its time for a quick cough and a drag'. He said he used to go to london uni back in the day, and he and his fellow nerdy friend used to sit opposite each other on the tube train and slowly shout out random chess moves across the carriage, merely to baffle the other commuters who would stare on desparately trying to follow this imaginary game!

Aaanyway, he used to give us a weekly homework sheet of maths questions.
Nothing out of the ordinary there, except that question number six was always either a picture of a penny farthing, or a rather nice picture of Patrick Mcgoohan. This made his class the only one worth going to! (Possibly a clever ploy methinks!)
Remember this was in the early nineties, before internet and windows, so this would've involved him physically cutting out a picture and literally pasting it onto a homework sheet in order to photocopy it.

Hats off to you Mr Humphrys!!! You were a gem!! (probably well dead by now...)

For those of you similar to most of my old maths class who simply do not get the reference, then go click HERE to be educated!

Trailer Time

Here's a teaser of the superman film, Man Of Steel, sadly not out until next year...

Looks smart! Well it couldn't be any worse than the last boring one, could it.

Easter Island Heads Have Bodies!

Dunno if you all already know this, or care, but I only just found out and thought it was kinda cool. These big-headed bastards have full bodies, extending down many, many feet into the ground of the island. The Easter Island Statue Project has been carefully excavating two of 1,000-plus statues on the islands – doing their best to uncover the secrets of the mysterious stones, and the people who built them.

Cool stuff. Keep on digging guys, because I'm patiently waiting for you to excavate the whole cat underneath the pyramids over in egypt. What, never heard of them? Shame on you!

New Dinosaur Species Discovered!

Yes it was me! So call it a mark-osaurus! I found the specimen in a local budget store, treating my youngest son to a quality toy. £1.99 aint too much for my kids. Just about. Anyway, the label clearly says Natureworld, and the little fellah certainly always embraces a new creature, his bedroom is veritably full of sea creatures and dinosaurs...

So naturally he loves his new addition to his kiddies zoo. I'm just slightly at a loss as to explain what page in his dinosaur encyclopedia to turn to. Can anyone help us identify this particular specimen, as my edition seems to clearly miss a page or two...

Most of the time, people make the strangest of correlations, usually it's newspaper journalists desparate for a headline. MMR vaccine scares to name but one. But sometimes, somebody makes one that is sheer brilliance! It's now painfully clear that christian bale is kermit. Go see the whole evidence of pictures HERE.
