How to put yourself out of business

How to put yourself out of business
I picked up this story through Twitter last night: Post a link, become a pirate Posting a link to a news story from Ireland might prove to be an expensive business. According to this site (hat tip Fark) a group of Irish newspapers have decided that the way to make cash from the web is to bill anyone who links ...

Best headline in ages

Run Tigers Run

A double-header of entertainment today, with a trip to Moore Park to watch the Wests vs St George NRL game; the first round of the season. Went with Sallie and Wayne for that one, then just Sallie after for dinner and a movie — the Simon Pegg comedy “Run Fatboy Run”, which was pretty damn ...

I still can’t work this one out …

It’s a fairly straightforward story, but the headline is a little … odd: BBC ‘wins’ battle of news bongs So what are these “news bongs” they speak of? Do they help make the news easier to take? Easier to understand? Or just send you blind so you don’t have to care either way about what’s ...
