We will introduce a stack-based Japanese computer language, the notion of keyword parameters in Japanese, and give a BNF description of Japanese. We will also present two of the key recursive grammar rules which make Japanese so easy for nerds.
"After years of promoting intolerance and bigotry through legislation (section 28) and rhetoric (speeches about the sanctity of the nuclear family), the Tory leadership has renounced its old ways. On Monday, Charles Hendry, shadow minister for young people and Conservative party deputy chairman, is to host a summit for young gay men and lesbians called the Way Ahead. In the Gothic surroundings of the grand committee room at the Commons, Hendry and some 100 representatives from gay support organisations will get together to discuss what the Conservatives can do for gay people (and, given the potential dividend at the ballot box, what gay people can do for the Conservatives)."
Tony Blair will today pave the way for blue chip British companies to cash in on Libya's multibillion pound defence and oil industries when he pays a historic visit to the former pariah, Colonel Muammar Gadafy, in his tent on the outskirts of Tripoli.
Within days of today's meeting, which will mark the symbolic ending of three decades of isolation for Tripoli, the oil giant Shell is expected to sign an agreement to allow it to drill for gas off the Libyan coast.
Phew! Thank goodness Tony & George are working so hard to rid the world of terror and make it safe for honest-to-goodness capitalism. Three cheers, etc. etc.

In a day when many Christians are producing watered-down, politically-correct films, The Light of the World provides exactly what you would expect from Jack Chick-a straightforward, biblically accurate, no-punches-pulled presentation of the gospel with a compelling salvation appeal."
Buy cool merchandise from Mel Gibson's vanity project. Surely if The Jesus was still around he would be busting into the offices of this outfit and looking for some tables to overturn, moneylender-smiting style.
Poll Tax riots, 1990 Re-enactors dressed in authentic 1990 clothes (start searching in cupboards, attics and charity shops now) will assemble in Trafalgar Square for a demonstration that turns into an all-out riot. The next day, most of the self-appointed leaders will condemn the riot.
The simulator uses haptic technology which allows the user to interact with a virtual environment through their sense of touch. While using the Bovine Rectal Palpation Simulator the student palpates virtual objects resembling parts of the reproductive tract inside the rear-half of a fibreglass cow. The teacher can visualise the student's actions on a screen and therefore provide training and guidance. The project uses the PHANToM force-feedback haptic device.
"It was just over 21 years ago that I invented a super-fast way of tying my shoelaces. I named this technique the Ian Knot, the World's Fastest Shoelace Knot, and have been sharing it with the world in a variety of ways ever since."

John Debney, who wrote the score for Mel Gibson's 'historically accurate' version of the passion of the Christ claims that Satan himself visited him via the medium of his computer - a transgression which provoked the composer to step up and offer to go toe-to-toe with Old Nick. In other news, Debney reports ownership of giant marshmallow which, in the cold light of day, had vanished ...along with his pillow.
“Once I got over the initial shock of that, I learned to work around it and learned to reboot the computers and so I would start talking to him. . . . The computers froze for about the tenth time [one] day and it was about nine o’clock at night and so I got really mad and I told Satan to manifest himself and I said, ‘Let’s go out into the parking lot and let’s go.’ It was a seed change in me. I knew that this was war. I am not a physical person, but I was really angry on this occasion.”
Stephen Hawking and Kip Thorne reckoned that any information passing into a black hole would cease to exists as it became compressed into the singularity. John Preskill disagreed - and it looks as though he might have won their bet.
This sort of reminds me of the old USENET hoax about the ultimate file compression utility that could compress megabytes of data into a single byte. I remember seeing a program that looked as though it actually achieved this claim - in actual fact it simply hid the 'compressed' files away in another directory and replaced them with a single-byte 'archive' file.
You must understand that this was before mp3s and we had to make our own entertainment.
