Have Greater Manchester Police made a rod for their own backs in going to court to appeal a ruling which appears to have caught them employing shady practices to get around the provisions of The Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE)?

Reporting the case, The Telegraph goes into frothy mouthed overdrive with a sub-headline […]

Woman shoots police officer with both barrels. Erm, make that both boobs!

Whilst I have heard the term bazookas used to describe breasts I don’t think I have ever read about them being used to shoot at the police before :

A woman was arrested early Saturday morning after spraying deputies with the Delaware County sheriff’s office with breast milk.

High speed, worm eating snails – I am so glad we don’t have these evil things in the UK.

Apparently from New Zealand, the snail in the video below has a surprising turn of speed when it finds a tasty worm for lunch.

Meet Yoda – the Worlds Ugliest Dog

You have to admit that “Yoda” is not the prettiest pooch in the world but, as in all things American, they have a prize for that :

Yoda’s short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs were enough to earn it the World’s Ugliest Dog title at a Northern California […]

Pictorial Interlude – The International Space Station gets a delivery.

A couple of stunning pictures from a photoset at The Atlantic documenting Endeavours final visit to the ISS.

After the article about the cross dressing airline traveller was published, more pictures of our stocking wearing airline friend have appeared and it seems like he is not shy in his choice of travel outfits :

Why do government websites cost so much? It’s not their money being spent of course.

How on earth do you spend the thick end of a million pounds on a website that does not actually work?

Easy when you are the Equalities and Human Rights Commision and you are spending someone else’s money it seems :
