Musharraf says that Bhutto is to blame for her own death:
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination was her own fault, the country’s president, Pervez Musharraf, said in an interview that aired Sunday on U.S. television.
“For standing up outside the car, I think it was she to blame alone — nobody else. Responsibility is hers,” the former general told CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
That’s ridiculous. It was obviously a laser based pin pointed weapon system that can pierce through the skull and the bones and cause death instantaneously.
XKCD hits another one out of the park.
A particularly interesting fireball was observed moving north over the Rocky Mountains from the U.S. Southwest to Canada on August 10, 1972, and was filmed by a tourist at the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming with an 8-millimeter color movie camera  The object was in the range of size from a car to a house and should have ended its life in a Hiroshima-sized blast, but there was never any explosion, much less a crater. Analysis of the trajectory indicated that it never came much lower than 58 kilometers off the ground, and the conclusion was that it had grazed Earth’s atmosphere for about 100 seconds, then skipped back out of the atmosphere to return to its orbit around the Sun.
Good news, everyone! Here is a story about building my very own Bender. This, as everyone should know, is the foul mouthed, cigar smoking, booze drinking, shiny metal arsed, bending robot from the programme Futurama. More information can be found in the Wikipedia Futurama entry .
Of course just having a Bender that doesn’t do anything would be a waste of time so mine shall be used for a practical purpose. One Bender himself would be proud of. I’ll use him to make beer!
