Happened to me too

I arrived at Heathrow and they asked me to see my mobile phone. I showed them and they started laughing and pointing saying "look at that guy, not even a iPhone".

Terrible, just terrible

Breakfast

I almost died choking on my breakfast reading that article!

Upon reading the title, I smirked thinking "Pot, Kettle, black?", but I could not stop laughing, and spilling the cereal when I read it!

Kudos to the last paragraph, as well... simply the best :D

Ahhh, yes....

This would, of course, be a follow on to the (failed) attempt at getting the Eurovision Song Contest classified as "cruel and unusual" punishment.

Cruel and unusual

Heh - typical Yank idiocy, but then what do you expect with a president who can't spell 'Guantemanomo' without the aid of My First World Dictionary, eh?

They're even giving this technique a name: Billboarding

did I miss something or is "amanfrommars" writing for the "The Register" . its 12:18 after a nice poker night and did not make any sense of that or I am I looking at a parallel world version of the reg and the rest of the WWW. is there some IP geo locator running looking for poor CIA men to interrogate. Would be nice if true :-)

Violation by flash site

That actually was pure torture when i was forced to browse via ISDN. I still deeply despise Flash for a number of reasons and totally support the move to have that banned.

Of course browsing forums for useful information is still much more of a pain in the butt.

Satirical Pots & Kettles or just April 1st?

They're obviously referring to the new "improved" mortgage application process from some of the banks. SPeaking of which, gotta go - my cavity search and 1hr session on the rack is scheduled for this morning.

By god, I've been waiting seven hours for a suitable April Fools to appear.

The Register has disappointed me before, when they lost any semblance of journalistic principles, but this takes the cake!

They have got a cheek

If anyone is first in heavy handed interrogation, is the yanks. Look at the various banshee warbling sirens they foist upon us - like April Levine. Talk about 'Sigh'ops.

Maybe you should send them copies of TheRegister stories to make their days complete ... we'll help with a fighting fund when the litigation is directed towards you ... honest we will.

Good first try

There is potential here. Too far off base to be even remotely believable, but it's a nice first try. Hint: if you want to lie, start with truth and slowly change it. Good educational books are, for instance, "Wilt" and "The throwback" from Tom Sharpe.

Especially in "Wilt" can you see how to develop (on the surface) totally innocent circumstances a point where it's impossible to read on without laughing your head off.

About time too.

As any fule kno, sites such as this have a duty of care towards the less-able visitors - such as Americans. Bomabarding those less gifted with complex questions and a barrage of colours and shapes will only cause them to express their insecurities through inappropriate actions.

For clarification...

Are we supposed to call 'April Fool' or just make some rant about the predictable hypocrisy of those crazy yankees?
