What the Paper Sprays

My father has a favourite newspaper. He reads it online because, so he says, the webpage layout isn't confusing.

Last week there was an article about how using Facebook gives you cancer. They say quite a lot of things give you cancer. This week they say Facebook damages children's brains too.

Also in the "Science and Technology" section:

* Revolutionary proton therapy cures boy, 5, of brain tumour

* Regrow your own dentures: Scientists discover gene that produces TEETH
* Recipe for disaster? 100 - [10L - 7F + C(k - C) + T(m - T)]/(S - E) makes the perfect pancake, claims maths professor
* Simon Cowell: I'm going to freeze my body when I die so I can be brought back to life
* Survival of the smartest: Those with a higher IQ are more likely to follow doctors' orders

The stupid, it burns.


  1. The thought of Simon Cowell coming back to life distrubs me on so many levels.

  2. Hmmm. But you don't mind the bit about women being useless at map reading? :-).

  3. Hey, despite the fact that I have ovaries, I CAN read a map. I also know where my keys are. :)
