Vetting database shows suspicion and spying are the new trust

This ongoing thingy

This once a month for 3 months in a row. Is that with the same children? I would assume so because you have to meet the same child in order to build up trust with them, but if that is the case why do people who make occasional visits to schools (i.e. writers) have to be vetted as the likely hood of them meeting the same kids again and again are unlikely.

Of course it means that the writers have to keep track of all the children that they have met for the last 3 months so they can check that none of them could trust him/her. If only there was some technological solution to aid the tracking.....

Cows can't detect earthquakes: Official

Have the scientists considered

That the cows knew there was an earthquake coming but could tell it was a weak one so didn't bother reacting.

Cows are that cool.

Chipmaker leak points to iPhone Nano in June

I'd buy that

I wouldn't mind a Nano sized Iphone. I don't care about GPS and if they can write 10000 apps for the big one in a couple of years I'm sure nano apps would appear quite quickly.

Perfect size would be around that of my Samsung Tocco.

@David Willis

David,

Thanks for giving me an unpleasant mental image with the Beating Off Russell Brand comment. I really needed that.

Paris, well......
