Apology of the Year: News.com.au:

YESTERDAY, a news.com.au article incorrectly stated that the Star Trek starship USS Enterprise-E, otherwise known as model NNC-1701-E, was the successor to Captain Kirk's original USS Enterprise.
It has since been brought to our attention that the NNC-1701-E in fact came two models after Captain Kirk retired and was under the command of Captain Jean Luc Picard.
User "Your Mum's Lunch" led the charge of those who correctly pointed out that after losing the original Enterprise to the Klingons, Captain Kirk was given the Excelsior Class Enterprise-B as a stop-gap measure until the refit of the Enterprise-A was completed.
Kirk's last ship was the Ambassador Class Enterprise-C.
Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E were in fact, the first of the Galaxy Class models and were under the command of Captain Picard.
There were also some concerns about whether the incorrect use of the term "hyperspace" in describing warp drive technology may harm the original Star Trek concept, particularly the books.
News.com.au apologises unreservedly for the error.
There was no intention whatsoever to suggest Captain Kirk may have commanded the Galaxy Class Starships Enterprise-D and Enterprise-E.
Any damage to the Star Trek brand incurred by the use of the term "hyperspace" is regretful.
No malice was intended and a correction to the original article will be made.
We also agree that Patrick Stewart is a handsome man, a sentiment expressed by several readers.
Addendum – We're also sorry for any errors in this apology

I think I need a tag for the unintentionally sad and hilarious things my sister says.

(Following an conversation about the pronunciation of "strasse")

Dad: Ha! The SS. Leave the Nazis out of it!

Sister: What have the SS got to do with Nazis?

I don't even want to know what she thinks the SS is.

Yes, Lolcats still amuse me.

Actually, I've been resorting to Piggy-Wig therapy recently, so I'm not actually doing that well. The Piggy-Wig is for times of last resort only. Thankfully, it has wonderful mood alleviating properties, even if it does have to be used sparingly.

"What's made him like this?"

"Some kind of fear..."



and because it pleases me, why Doctor Who was better in the 70's.



You can't argue with that.

Cruel and amusing to someone who literally has an internal countdown going until sunday night.

Also, caught the Who Do You Think You Are with David Suchet the other night - what a gorgeous little boy.

A modern art exhibit has wreaked havoc after blowing away from a museum in the Swiss city of Berne.

The exhibit in question, titled “Complex Sh*t”, was an inflatable dog turd the size of a house.

The exhibit, a sculpture by American artist Paul McCarthy, was blown loose from its moorings at the Paul Klee centre. An inopportune gust of wind then carried it 200 yards.

The giant inflatable stool brought down an electricity line and smashed a greenhouse window before eventually coming to rest in the grounds of a children’s home.

Representatives of the museum later revealed that McCarthy’s work of art had a safety system that would automatically deflate the inflatable turd in the event of a storm but admitted the device had failed to activate.

Some laughs are just good for the soul.

If I have to see this, you all have to see this.

I used to really love Jo too, but now I'll never be able to look at a Dalek without wondering what other attachments it has hidden away...

Mooching throught the blogsphere I've fallen across a blog called Todger Talk, a sex blog maintained by 3 different men posting on their experiences and thoughts on sex. It's a fun little read, but the best thing I've found on there was this.

Best Readers Letter Ever )

The blog is actually articulate and intelligent and I'll happily tell you to go check it out (probably best not to do so from work) but that just had me rolled up.

There's a bit of a design flaw in there, isn't there. Just a teeny one.
