Voting for bullsh*t

Previously in posts about 2008 US presidential candidates we looked at who voters most want to get in a bar fight with.
Now it's the turn of bullshit and the important role that it plays in election politics ;-)

News on 'The Hobbit'

Excellent news in today's Guardian, which contains an interview with Ian McKellen, where he indicates his interest in reprising the role of Gandalf for the upcoming Hobbit movies. Guillermo del Toro is set to direct with peter Jackson producing.
This is an exciting develpment and one I look forward to seeing on the big screeen.

Six degrees of separation #27

So the Heroes Edition has been on the go for a bit now and it did elicit 2 successful responses. The anonymous first answer in five followed by Simon (a six degrees regular) nailing it in three: Ali Larter to Luke Wilson in Legally Blonde, Luke to Brother Owen in The Royal Tenenbaums. Owen to mcdowell i spy. There is always value in linking the Wilson brothers.

I also got it in three moves, like so:
1. Ali Larter to Scott Caan in Varsity Blues (hee-hee); 2. Caan to Topher Grace in Oceans 11; and 3. Grace to Malcolm McDowell in In Good Company.

Back to a straight link up this week:
#27 - Donald Sutherland to Jamie Lee Curtis

Hacker follow up...

So, previously I blogged about the hackers who were getting in the face of Scientology and thought it a bit of a lark. Little did I know the Machiavellian lengths to which these dastardly types were going. Their hack attack used Rick Astley no less! A harsh punishment for anyone.

Iron stomach anyone?

Not for the fainted hearted, but a friend sent me this post, which takes the iron stomach to an agonising new level - it lasts a week!

Six degrees of separation #26: The Heroes Edition

The Smallville edition was solved in 4 moves by Erica in my office who said: "Tom Welling was in Cheaper by the Dozen (ha) with Steve Martin, who was in The Out-Of-Towners with Goldie Hawn, who was in The First Wives Club with Diane Keaton, who was in Annie Hall with the freaky assed John Glover".
The above views are not those of this blog or its proprietor!
