Conspiracy theory of my own: the Royal Family deliberately chose to announce this news today because every politician has been banished from the airwaves, and thus can't muscle in on their story.

[There are local elections in much of the UK today, and by law radio and TV are forbidden from broadcasting 'campaign' material while polling stations are open - as they are in most democratic countries around the world. But since no politician can be allowed to see a microphone without immediately grasping it to campaign for, or against, something-or-other, that's suspended General Election broadcasting as well. Phew. We get a day off to enjoy the lovely Yorkshire sunshine.]

My own conspiracy theory is the French jumping at any chance to print bad news about Britain, try that one


That's definatly NOT a conspiracy Chris it's well known about the English an the French ( CESM's ) just like Sir humphrey said to Jim Hacker in " Yes Prime Minister " about Gt Britain and Nukes " you know the scene I'm meaning ;-) hehe Still as true today as it was when first broarcast decades ago now .

Couldn't say if it's true but I'm sure plenty of people belive that , personaly i ain't paid that much attention to it .
All i know is that it's russian and they and they sponsor a certain F1 team who i don't much like ( but not as much as Red Bull !!)
http://www.kasperskymotorsport.com/f1-team
And other motorsport classes

Mushrooms grow on the allotment to the side of my back garden and they're the " magic " kind shame they're now " class a " even if you just pick em nowadays :-( .

Anyone who trusts Putin's Russia has got to be on something


And ?????
Least Putin's got far more experiance of politics on the " world stage " than a certain numpty in the USA , and you can't say I'm wrong there can you !!!

It has been known for some time that there are those out there that simply want to bring down law and order throughout the world for various reasons. Most are either religious fanatics, one sandwich short of a picnic, mentally ill or psychologically challenged, or simply just people that are disaffected with their lives and just want to blame society.


You " lost " me a bit Chris with your post are you " talking " about Sirius's post or the seti@home boards ? Coz the quoted statement by you can easily be meaning either ;-) ;-)

C'mon Mark you told me that both ickle braincells were up and running today!! If you look at my post it clearl;y said


That was yesterday not today Chris England's in only one time zone even if certain places are century's behind ;-) ,
was a rite bugger here up untill Jan this year we DIDN'T have electric , used to watch TV by candlelight or maybe even Oil lamps ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) . ( But not half as bad as Norfolk hehe ) .

I been good and did some work today and even rememberd to change over the Oxy cylinder before it ran out !!!!!!

Although I entirely agree that the post could equally have referred to those frequenting Seti Politics. With jobsworths and lax management that is what you get.


That's very naughty Chris putting words into my mouth like ;-) ( even if it's exactly what i ment hehehe :-) ;-) :-) )

( but i was being good and not saying it meself so thanks Chris :-) )

Just had a look and all i'm guna say is " You say i come up with some loony idea's " next thing you know they'll find em " eggs " then get " friendly " with a face hugger and after that you get to meet a Chest burster ( ask john Hurt r.i.p ;-( ) , that's as belivable as the story you quoted , least mine do have a slight thread of belivability to em ;-) And Fox news C'mon hehehehehe ;-)

Edit : Was there any " news " on Fox bout the massive spaceship that's orbiting in Saturn's ring system ?? ( the one that towed the moon into Earth orbit ;-) ) ,and on NASA releasing the photo's of it from the Cassini probe ( NOT photoshopped one's either ;-) ) as she's on her last few orbits towards it's end :-( ( but some beutiful photo's of saturn and her moons are being published , ain't got any links i just google NASA and Cassini and go off the nasa link ( ain't botherd to bookmark it )

Like the Sunday Sport with a WWII bomber on the moon


Don't you dare start knockin the Sunday Sport it was a national institution in EVERY workshop in the land along with the Daily Sport , you can't say you never had a tea break and someone would be reading out the problem page ( maybe not at BT but then they in't normal , and that's from me experiance of em at " Adistral park " ;-) !!! ) Must be soo hard for them wearing sungllasses all the time , only coz of the sunshine comin out of their stink holes ( they belive ;-) )

And they make more money than you or I do!! So who has the last laugh??

Can't argue with that one at all , think you know exactly what i thinks there ;-) least " we " can fight back a bit with " kodi " and before you say that story in the sun yesterday is about a very outdated app on the box , and i don't use it and DON'T INSTALL it either ;-) ( on any box ;-) ) just F.Y.I ;-)

Is the local Apple Crunchers Gazette still written in Yokel-ese?


Na never has been we ain't so stuck up our own arses to be worried bout Apples , Mac's and w#nkytoshes for that matter , leave them for you " city " people ( where there's a big " Smug " problem caused by Prius drivers ;-) ) .

"Oi'm busy worken boi, but left my jumper atum, but a bibble after the gag at pub".

I lives in Suffolk mate not Turnip crunching inbread Norfolk land thank you very much ( and AIN'T the Fenn's either before you start going there ;-) )

By the fifth century, the Angles (after whom East Anglia and England are named) had established control of the region. The Angles later became the "north folk" and the "south folk", from which developed the names "Norfolk" and "Suffolk". Similar to Essex for the East Saxons, Wessex (as was) for the West saxons, Sussex for the South Saxons, and Middlesex (as was) for the Middle Saxons.


Never knew " Baldrick " posted on these boards Sir Tony Robinson ;-) , guarenteed " down the local " with Mick & Phil after a hard day's shooting of Time Team ;-) ;-) R.I.P Mick & Phil you made that show what it was and IS the ORIGINAL ( not a " copy " !!!! )

edit 5:2 bring it on all 8 cylinders are fire'n today matey and NO2 + super ready to go ;-)

I'm me and i likes me even with all my faults and mistakes i made , least i ain't got a " silver spoon " shoved up me poop shoot and think just coz " i is talkin posh like , that means i'm better than everyone else" ( DOES apply to USA there to ( surprisingly ;-) )
edit : ( don't give a crap what anyone else think of me at all so there you go :-) )
