Suspicious

I'm not convinced, if I was wired an undisclosed but substantial sum of money, I too would rush to your defence pretending to be a whatever it was you were being accused of. Clearly something similar must have happened here. The big O is NOT innocent I declare!

There's a phrase you won't often hear...

"El Reg's US bureau was staked out by paparazzi"

Unlikely.

Also, @ Hermes Conran: I think you're mistaking "environmental denialists" with Universal.

Show's how bad things are though

When somebody who's clearly very talented (in her CURRENT job, not her previous one :p) has to resort to prostituion just to get through their PhD.

Impossible!

WTF?

Seconded
