It seems my Nigerian spammer “friend” Jerry Duruibe
(part one, two) has taken the bait and thinks I’m really interested in the matter he’s proposed… He sent me his contact details on Wednesday, I replied and he’s quite eager to contact me to proceed… *evil laugh* Mwaahhh.

News: Myra Hindley Has Died

November 16th, 2002 by Richy B. 1 comment »

Well, the Moors MurdererMyra Hindley has died aged 60. I haven’t really got much to say on the subject as she was imprisoned for the murder of the 2 children in 1966 (she later confessed to the rest) which was ‘before my time’. I’m not even quite sure why I’m blogging about it, but at least the cost on the prison service has been reduced (she’s been in prison for around 40 years and had made quite a number of appeals in the time). Oh well.

The only kinda (and I know this may sound “sick” to some people) amusing thing about it all is that she’s going to be cremated. For some reason, I can remember a song that went “Myra Hindley, she smoked like a chimney, but she’s my little nicotine girl” and just recalling those lyrics (which may not even be accurate) in-conjunction with her being cremated (ie going up a chimney) is kinda ironic…

Game: Radial Pong

Sigh, I remember playing Pong with the old Paddle-style joysticks on a video games system when I was just a wee kid. And now Firda has blogged about the Java Radial Pong game. Instead of the bats being straight, vertical and facing each other on opposite sides of the screen, they are curved and can travel all the way round in a circle. So instead of having to cover a straight line (where the ball could bounce out), you’ve now got to cover 360 degrees. *gulp*

Fun: Wacko Jacko!

Gretchen has blogged about this page showing a photographic history of Michael Jackson‘s Face that she found via an entry at Ain’t Too Proud To Blog.

Personally, I do think that the photo of him on this Reuters news article does show Darwin’s theory of Evolution in reverse…All together now, sing: “I wanna walk like you, talk like you, it’s true…”

Blogging: Referrers

Hmm, looking at my referrer logs for this site, it seems some 42 folks at NASCAR® Racing 2002 Discussion (registration required) were quite interested in the Mystery of Time Space Adventure, 30 people at Q4Music and 10 at Castle Quest liked the George Bush photo (so much they ‘leeched’ the photo off my site: see Cockeyed for what I could have done to the image), and 2 from totalxsive’s blog. Google search results, referrer spam and sites that have referred less than 10 visitors excluded.

Interesting reading 🙂
