Andrew Gilligan and Matthew Brown – Continuing the story of the PCC candidate linked to American neocons I linked to last week, here’s the tale of how a Daily Telegraph journalist based a story entirely on the proclamations of a fantasist.
Jill Dando, John Yates and Operation Oxborough – Was Jill Dando’s privacy being invaded before she was murdered, and who was responsible?
The Disappearance of the Colonists on LV-426 is Something God Intended to Happen – “Life is what’s important to me. The lives we can save, right here and now. The little, baby alien lives. I believe they begin the moment the egg reacts to the heat of the nearby host and the implanter life form hatches.”
Thank you Vasili Arkhipov, the man who stopped nuclear war – Fifty years ago, a Russian submarine captain made a decision not to fire a nuclear torpedo. Thanks to him and others, the place where I live isn’t part of the East Anglian Fallout Zone.
Will the United States or the United Kingdom play a role in supporting any Israeli military strike against Iran in the six months following the 2012 US presidential election? – A somewhat reassuring brief from Open Briefing, arguing that the US and UK won’t be backing any Israeli action in the short term. I’ve been following Open Briefing for a while, and it has some interesting reports and briefings, so I would recommend it.

Just had an idea for a film that would surely be a massive success, merging two things that are very popular in various media: Gladiators vs Zombies. Tattered corpses lurching through the streets of ancient Rome to confront the serried ranks of gladiators who stand waiting for them as the last line of defence before they break through and swarm over the seven hills. With plenty of opportunities for gratuitous violence and entirely artistically necessary scenes set at orgies, how could it possibly fail to be a success?

I’m not sure something like this even needs a script, but Hollywood? Feel free to call me and offer large sums of money for the rights. After all, if this is a success, you’ll need an idea for a sequel.
