I want one ! How big is that monitor ? 92" that's how big !
All I need now is $18,000
Just what the world needs. Coffee flavoured corn flakes
Now you can be wired all day !
So the Beagle space probe is going to land on mars on Christmas morning.
But little did I know the lander is only 32cm in diameter, by 23 cm deep. Thats tiny. I'm impressed. But it weights nearly 70kg. I imagine most of that are the parachutes and airbags.

It looks like the X-Prize is not too far from being won.

Silly flash games for the time of the year.
Try catapulting Santa
Or Finding Santa

One storm can wreck your whole 5 years.
All that planning, work, blood sweat and toil, only to have your multi-million dollar project hang in the balance because of a unpredictable natural phenomena. Doh !

So how old do you have to be to take US citizenship ?
He was born during Czar Nicolas II reign (if that helps you at all) What's My Pirate Name? "Dirty William Kidd", it says, which I'm pretty sure isn't quite right.

I got "Dirty Sam Flint"
(You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr! )

I wonder how many americans actually think like this ?
Certainly > 0%, but < 100%.

What do you mean the French have no sense of humour ?
Need to know stuff about H.P. Lovecraft ?
Then try his very own search engine. :D
