Tired waiting for the new Star Trek film? Let Monty Python tide you over.

This isn’t news, its nothing up to date, but this is a fantastically hilarious video for round the office, and that alone means we have to post it here.

Reptiles more popular pets than dogs

Posted: 24 Nov 2008 01:00 AM CST


Reptiles such as snakes and geckos have grown in popularity to outnumber Dogs. There are over 8 million reptiles and amphibians kept as pets in the UK, compared to 6.5 million Dogs.

If growth continues as it has done, then reptiles may overtake the 9 million cats in the UK to become Britain’s most popular pet.

Chris Newman, chairman of the British Federation of Herpetologists, said: “There are now, without question, more pet reptiles than pet dogs in the UK. You only have to look at the way the market has grown. I have no doubt that there are now between seven and eight million reptiles living as pets in the UK.

“Reptiles’ popularity as mainstream pets has grown immensely. There has been an explosion in numbers. They have moved from being niche to being mainstream.

“They are far more suitable as pets than are animals which are perceived as more traditional pets, such as cats, dogs and small mammals. Reptiles fit today’s modern lifestyles as they are less time-consuming, and can also be easier to keep, than other traditional pet species.”

Arsenal collapse continues as ‘Big Four’ get shut out

Posted: 23 Nov 2008 02:09 PM CST

What odds would you have gotten on all four of the ‘Big Four’ failing to score a goal this weekend? We have no idea, but you’d be a rich man if you’d made that bet.

Only Arsenal managed to lose as well, getting thumped 3-0 by Man City in a result that had Wenger at his ‘hear no evil, see no evil’ best afterwards as reporters dared to ask about the Billy Gallas situation. In other results, the tightest league in recent memory continued as Spurs climbed out of the relegation zone by beating 10-man Blackburn while Bolton beat Middlesbrough and Pompey drew Hull. There’s only a handful of points separating 6th from 16th while Chelsea and Liverpool have pulled clear at the top without much of a fuss.

Sunderland 0-1 West Ham
Tottenham 1-0 Blackburn
Aston Villa 0-0 Man Utd
Chelsea 0-0 Newcastle
Liverpool 0-0 Fulham
Man City 3-0 Arsenal
Middlesbrough 1-3 Bolton
Portsmouth 2-2 Hull
Stoke 1-0 West Brom
