Sawyer doesn’t have a penis.

Now I know this isn’t real world news, but i found it interesting just the same. It’s a case of 2x0=0. Sore Thumbs is an interesting web comic, give it a read.

Are Devin Moore and Jack Thompson are idiots .?.

People more intelligent than either Moore or Thompson have done a study which proves, as every other intelligent person knows, that computer games don’t cause violence on their own.

Everybody with any common sense knows that if you go out and kill somebody ‘because’ of a video game, then you’re probably mentally/chemically unbalanced in the first place and shouldn’t have been allowed to play games with violence. That includes those whack-a-mole games with the foam hammer in the arcade.

Google is better than Yahoo.

Proof that Yahoo need to get back to their core services instead of trying to play catchup with Google (Flickr is a great service, but Chat, IM, and Search tools all suck.). The recent claim that they have more documents listed in their indexed is rubbished by a scientific analysis.

M$ are stingy bastards.

Once again, Microsoft are being stingy bastards. During a simultaneous world-wide release of a console, you’d expect console prices to be pretty much the same, taking into account any minor fluctuations in the exchange rates. When speaking in units of Ã?£100, is there anyone who would define Ã?£60 as a minor fluctuation ?

E=mc² is 100 years old.

The famous equation is now a century old. I was watching a documentary on Einstein’s theories, and it made me realise one of the things one of the characters said in Dragonball Z- the thing where Trunks went to like Saiyen 3 or 4 and couldn’t move as fast. The extra energy increased his mass to a point where his speed was reduced.
