More foosball news...

Beckham set to leave Real Madrid. Maybe he's coming to the Toon after he heard how much ILN liked his goal against the Dons... ;)

Toon goals

We love the Toon!


And lots of them, too. Toon goals The site has all the classics in recent years including Albert's chip against Man U, Rob Lee's wrongly disallowed classic (better than Beckhams goal) against Brentford and The Adidas adverts featuring Keegan, Terry Mac and Shearer and loads more.With a few clips from 60's, 70's and the 80's.About 10-15% are dead links more so as you go back in time.

Here is another Toon clips site that has 7 brilliant home made short movies with titles such as Bellars is a Geordie, Shear Class and Peter the Great.
And finally Alan SHEARER VIDEOS !!! is what it says, it includes the winning goal he scored against Germany in EURO 2000 on the day of my son's birth which inspired me to give him the middle name Alan.

Office Attachments

Yahoo's humour section has had an overhaul. It's now called Office Attachments and has links to the sort of stuff circulated via email. Age of the stuff varies - for instance in the 'new' bit they have the Mini transformer thing which we featured ages ago. But they also have the wedding dress one which is flying around the net as we speak.

Spreading a little lurve...

These boys know how to do it in style! German tabloid welcomes EU nudes. I, also, welcome our new big-breasted overlords..! (SFW)
Morning all! Nothing on the TV last night, so I had a chance to do some preparation for today's award-winning post for the award-winning NewLinks. I thought I'd bring you a round up of this week's science news, and a selection of interesting stuff from elsewhere around the ol' interweb. The science news is all skanked from the excellent
New Scientist website. After all, they do say that it's where the real news exists these days. We'll have none of your vacuous weekly celebrity worshipping, or political tittle-tattle round here.


Anyway, on with the linkage...



Let's kick off with this story about an expedition that will set off to Turkey in the summer with the aim of finding Noah's Ark. Fair enough, you might think, but they're going to investigate "what they believe to be a mammoth structure some 45 feet high, 75 feet wide and up to 450 feet long that was exposed in part by last summer's heat wave in Europe". Chuck in the obligatory conspiracy theory, in 1957 Turkish air force pilots spotted a boat-shaped formation in the Agri province. The government did not pursue the sighting, as the entire area, including Mount Ararat, was off limits to foreigners because of Soviet complaints that explorers were U.S. spies - and you've got the makings of the next Indiana Jones film. Mr. Spielberg, you know where to find me.

And if running around on a mountain is not quite your bag, why not try running around chasing after UFOs in Iran. It seems flying saucer fever has gripped Iran after dozens of sightings in the last few days. Read more about it here.




We also haven't had much news from mars lately, so here's a quick check on the progress of the rovers. Spirit sets a personal best and Opportunity nears next target.

Staying on Mars for a moment, the funniest page title of the day must go to this one which tells you all about NASA's plans for the next mars expedition.




Movie News : This looks like it will either be really good, or really, really weak. It's 'The Day After Tomorrow', and it's got Jake Gyllenhall in it. He's the kid in Donny Darko. Any way, the movie's about what would happen if there was some kind of mega storm that obliterates the world and sends us all back into the Ice age. Kind of like what would happen if there was a nuclear winter I suppose.

And that's exactly what you might get when you discover



that we (Europe) could be in nuclear disarray as our borders push east and we have the inclusion of the ten new countries that are joining us tomorrow. I, for one, welcome our new Lithuanian overlords.




Anyway, I digress. If the Lithuanian strippers don't get us all (fingers crossed), maybe the robot traffic cones will. That's right, herds of robotic traffic cones could soon be swarming onto the A1, closing down lanes and slowing the traffic. Check this out though - each fleet of robots is made up of a lead robot or "shepherd", which is equipped with a GPS satellite receiver, plus a number of less expensive "dumb" units. The shepherd takes up its position, and tells the other road cones where to go. I, for one, welcome our new conical overlords.





Robot news story number #3 features a robot, who this time, is armed with a superglue gun. But instead of fixing things around the house this one "could finger bomb suspects". Not what you want first thing in the morning.
It seems that when a bomb disposal robot destroys a suspicious package, crucial evidence that could trap the would-be bombers can be lost forever. Again, more interesting stuff from the ol' New Scientist.

And if super glue won't fix it, how about a nice bit of soldering action? That's right kids; scientists have added the trusty soldering iron to their nano-toolkits.
They've created an atomic-scale conveyor belt that may also be the smallest soldering iron ever created. The new device, which ferries molten metal, is made from carbon nanotubes just 20 millionths of a millimetre in diameter. I think that's even smaller than a grain of sand! Woo-yay! That is small!

That should keep y'all going for the next five minutes...

One for the...

...peace loving, eco friendly, soap dodging, New Age hippies we seem to have around here. Today is Beltane, an ancient Gaelic festival. Well it is tomorrow actually but the celebrations take place on the night before - like Christmas Eve for pagans & wiccans. Probably.

Religious question of the day - how do pagans know how to do their ceremonies? They seem to be all based on these ancient holiday dates which are all pre Roman. If this is the case there are no written records from that time so the pagans must either be guessing what went on or they must be in possession of the oldest British documents. Ever. You decide.

I'm off to dance around a fire, making up a quasi religion as I go.

Google announces GMail

...or maybe it was the fact that it's long awaited stock market flotation has been announced. The IPO is expected to reach $2.7bn when the first batch shares of shares is sold by online auction which means that Google is worth about $20bn.

The current owners of the C64, Tulip, have announced a 30 in 1 joystick console. Depending on the games this could be a must-have bit of kit. The linked article links to an original article in Dutch which has a figure of 30 euros or about 20 quid. I'm assuming that is the projected cost of the device.

Mission Statement: To discretely provide US troops shipping out overseas with the most sensually pleasing departure possible.



I'm predicting that Bungers will join the Army after reading this one. Take One For The Country has been set up to provide Iraq bound soldiers with a good shagging session before they go. Unfortunately for Bungers it's a US organisation.



It looks like multiple partner orgies are off the menu though - according to the mission statement above they will only provide it discretely.

It's Billy Shakeshaft's birthday too! Yay!It's a bit late in the day to post this but it'll do for next year! As well as a listing of events the website is the official home of a campaign to make today a public holiday.



The only reason I'm posting this now is due to the fact that Bungers' link to the beeb no longer has St. George featured on the front page. Presumably St. George's day finishes at 6pm or something.



It looks like we are not alone in wanting to make more of St. Georges day as a new survey reports, partially due to the recent success of the egg chasers. Planning for New Links St George's Day Party 2005 starts here.

Columbine


This is an article (The Depressive and the Psychopath) about the Columbine school shootings which is hardly news but is an interesting read.



Apparently it was not a 'normal' school shooting as such but a plot to wipe out the largest number of Americans in one go. It wasn't just a couple of kids that were hacked off at being bullied and laughed at - one of them had "a messianic-grade superiority complex" and if he hadn't taken part in, & died, at Columbine may well have went on to do something much worse in later life.

Anorak - Keeping tabs on the rags of this world...

Here's one for you all. Allow me to present Anorak. It's a site that looks at tabloid, broadsheet, showbiz and sports coverage in the daily press.

I think we need a "news" icon. It can then be brilliantly combined with any other icon, i.e. "Local" "News", "Farming" "News", etc. My talents are wasted, they really are... ;)

Yay for action figures. I'll have the Kermit as Indy doll please.

Good old St George of England. Perhaps it wasn't a dragon - maybe it was one of the sewer crocodiles that we'll see on our day trip?

Blink 183's first album

Reclaiming St. George's Day

Yay for St George's Day. Will you be going to one of the many community events that have beem organised to celebrate it? Will you be supping your free pint of English beer sponsored by Nexus? Or perhaps listening to the day long celebrations on the radio and watching pictures of the parades on TV? No & neither will I as there will be none of these things happening.


This could be due to the fact the the flag of St George (the flag of our country) is widely considered to be a racist symbol by the loony left who seem to think national pride is the same as racism. The direct result of this is that the only place you see the flag these days is on an NF march (I hope they enjoyed their bags of piss!) so it's little wonder it is seen as a racist symbol.


I am fiercely proud of being English (and British!) and I am not racist. I don't hate any race or nation purely for their ethnicity or colour. So why can't I celebrate my country's national day? It's about time we had St George's day celebrated and not feared.

One for Bungers

Turn yourself in to Blink 182(3) with the help of this.
Includes "Fsck a Dog".No mention of the latest album here but all the rest are.When i find stuff for "untitled" i will post it.

Croatian Chords Page and more "Don't Vote Booosh"!

A just what you need on a sunday morning... It's a Croatian Chords Page. This is just for Chopper, so that he can pick these up later today.

Did I mention that our band is now going to be called "Blink 183°" and will play in a Blink tribute style-e? That album ROCKS!! Rrrrraaaaaaar!Now all I need is a good Blink chords site...

p.s. Doesn't "All of this" sound like a Cure track..?? No.? Oh, well, I thought so! Anyways:



Now, I know I said that our coverage of the American presidential election campaign had already finished for this year, but these were too good to omit. So, here's some notable quotables from Jay Leno's show last Thursday:



"President Bush earned $400,000 for his job as president last year. That's not really that much, but see President Bush, he doesn't do it for the money, he does it for the eight months of vacation every year...



"You know the difference between President Bush and American Idol? See, on American Idol the one with the most votes wins."



"In his press conference the other night, President Bush said freedom is a gift from the Almighty, and we have been called by God to use our military power to spread freedom throughout the world. Then he called that Sadr guy in Iraq a religious nutcase."

Warner Bros Leaves Tyneside After 15 years


I never heard about this...?
----8<-----

The £5m Warner Cinema complex in Newcastle opened at Manors in 1989, but closed permanently last night; its final showing being the aptly named film 'Dawn of the Dead'. Fierce competition from new, modernised cinemas such as The Gate's Odeon and the Silverlink's UCI have proven too much for the Manor cinema. The site has been purchased by Northumbria University who plan to build student accommodation to facilitate the expansion plans of government and the University itself. A spokesperson from Vue Entertainment who purchased the site in 2003 said they would be looking to return to Tyneside in the future.

Is your collection of public domain films getting too large too handle because of your torrent addiction? You should have a look at the Ant Movie Catalog. This software allows you to store details of the films you own - dvd/vhs/divx/whatever and will also pull in extra details from imdb or Amazon. It also has a reminder thing so you can keep track of who you have lent films to - invaluable for the New Linkers with memory recall problems.

Here comes the science bit...

One for dogs

We'll have none of that nu(!)-fangled punk stuff for dogs which he thinks is so crap he still hasn't given me my Transplants album back! So here is some genuine '80s rock from the masters of metal, Motorhead. Ace of Spades to be exact. So why is Ace of Spades worthy of a New Links link? Because it now has added kitten goodness.

This is still to be confirmed. Lisa heard this at the game last night - I'll try and find some confirmation of this today.

President spends 40% of time out of the office


Being the ruler of the world is obviously easy. The ChimpMeister only needs to spend 60% of his time in the office. That's almost as much free time as teachers. 2 week Easter holiday and they are still having a 'teacher training' day on what should have been 1st day of term. bah mutter... lazy fsckers... grumble... overworked my arse.. pizzle...

Jailed murder suspect plucks out eye


Woo for self administered justice. Just as Fred West gave himself the death sentence that the law in this country could never do, a murder suspect has given himself some biblical justice ripping his eye out whilst quoting Bible verses. This seems like classic blame displacement here - "It was all my eyes fault your honour but I've punished the errant orb.".



He should have ripped his heart out as that is the crime he is accused of - murdering his 4 year old son, his ex wife and her 1 year old daughter and cutting their hearts out.

Toon's run in



After getting a point against Arsenal at the weekend we've stayed in the race for 4th place. I, like Claudio Ranieri, now concede the title race to Arsenal! Nufc.com have a good page with all the relevant facts about our run in - and those of every other team that is battling for 4th place.



The game was a cracker, not least because the atmosphere was amongst the best I've experienced in ages even though it did tail off a bit occasionally it was still way louder than most games this season. The game was full of good football from both sides, glaring misses from Henry (yay!) & the now obligatory French style cheating you expect from Arsenal. We should probably take it as a compliment that Arsenal felt the need to cheat in such a blatant way to earn a draw but their constant carping at the ref, attempting (and achieving most of the time) to move throwins and free kicks by huge amounts, diving and hacking just showed them up I felt. And how their gay (in the SP sense) keeper managed to remain unpunished, by referee and God, for pushing Shearer back to the ground after he was attempting to get up after a goal mouth pile in is a mystery. 49,000 Geordies saw it but the 3 officials didn't. Durkin the best ref in England my arse. He's just a ginger dwarf.

Rejoice!

After the Disturbing Search Results post the other day here's another chance to peer into the dark recesses of internet users minds.

Apparently there are people out there looking for 'Grandma Bingo Sex' as he had 122 downloads!

The history of site has histories of various items like light bulbs and computers. Astonishingly for an American site it correctly credits Joseph Swan as the inventor of the light bulb and not Thomas Edison. Encarta used to have Edison credited in the US edition and Swann in the UK edition.



Newcastle has a strong link with electric light - the first light bulb factory in the world was in Benwell, Cragside had the first house lit by hydroelectric power, Mosley Street was the first to be lit by electric street lights & of course the mackem Swann only invented the lightbulb so he could escape from the darkness that is sundlind.
