Next thing they?ll be telling me is all those creatures in Walt Disney films can?t really talk.
---------------------

Of course they could talk. However, out of laziness, they hired Mel Blanc to voice the parts on the films.

I wish somebody would put a round into that Tariq ali, he was a uber arsehole thirty years ago, and he has not changed since.

The words Racehorse, Comittee, Designed , Camel, and by, spring to mind whenever I see that Eurofighter, its butt ugly, god help us even the Rafale is sexier looking, it does not even have the merit of being ugly in a street fighter sort of way as was the Phantom.
Besides anything with the word Euro tacked on the front has to be a dismal flop.

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have
produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
(O.M.G.!)

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves
to death. (Creepy.)
(I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
(Do not try this at home. Maybe at work.)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
("Honey, I'm home. What the....?!")

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human
jumping the length of a football field.
(30 minutes... lucky pig. can you imagine??)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Something I always wanted to know.)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
(Hmmmmmm........)

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than
left-handed people.
(If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
(OK, so that would be a good thing....)

A cat's urine glows under a black light.
(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
(I know some people like that.)

Starfish have no brains.
(I know some people like that too.)

Polar bears are left-handed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer.)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for
pleasure.
(What about that pig??)

That thar was funny enuff to amost cause coffee to squirt out the proboscis.

Incidentally, the pig's ejaculate is 10x the volume of a human male. (. . . sorta puts one off dinner. . .)

Totally agree, topcat, s/thing about the curves and form and scent of the fairer gender to remove the worries from one's day.
S/times a cuppa at local cafe is spent solely in admiration of God's creation.

Capybara are the world's largest rodents (imagine a cross between a guinea pig and a hippopotamus, weighing over 100lb). They are native to South America. Because capybara are semi-aquatic, Catholics are allowed to eat their meat (usually dried and salted) during Lent. No sign of capybara dying out yet.

singaporegirl ,
that had me referring to dictionary, naturally respectful of your Mensa-qualified vocab one was curious why school memories evoked 'cap-I-bara'. . . . in fact it's merely alternative sp.
Society and Nuttall's is to blame.

topcat ,

Echincea supplements + vit. C 500mg morning and night. Echinacea best on 3-weeks on/one week off regime (s/thing about losing effectiveness if used continually), vit. B 2..? or 6..? for energy boost with a cold or 'flu, green tea.
SG might have more on the tea sitrep...?

mind you, the simple feeling of a woman's fingers massaging the scalp is better than any supplements when one is sick

Hmm.... undecided still on what works . . . canary yellow bikini or white bikini over a tan. . . .? ( on her.. people.. on her.. )

The rest of the internet is fine but my broadband connection from work seems to be running at about 4bps on PPRuNe. Maybe Danny needs to stick another quid in the meter....

Could be a DDoS - Distributed Denial of Service attack?

Seems to be the weapon of choice for organised criminals seeking to extort money from unprotected sites.

The classic DDoS attack begins with a break-in at a computer, which then becomes the master computer for the intended attack. Several other computers are then hacked and a command is sent through the master telling them to bombard the servers of the target with bogus requests.

A single computer can issue a rapid series of data packets that can help to tie up the target's servers. Its like saying "hello" repeatedly and starting numerous unfinished conversations.(JB)

Tracking down the miscreants can be a bugga. The computers used are not their own, so tracing their Internet protocol addresses can prove fruitless. The bogus requests are also bounced off other servers around the world. So on, so on.

Check yer pooters it could be you! Sorry officer I was just ppruning

Mr Rossco
I cannot find your alternative spelling of capybara in my dictionary, but I use Oxford, not an Antipodean proxy. What does a pawn-broker have to do with it?

I drink lots of green tea and eat lots of oranges, and seem to suffer less from colds than the men in my office (though they never have colds - only flu ).
