Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you? A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

The "advert" below was e-mailed out from Harry Bitsch the editor of Cockring (and no I'm not linking to it so there). He also passed on details of Technology's steamier side from MSNBC. Interesting, even more interesting considering some of the moral laws being considered in the US, and the possible impacts it implies on technological advances. Boy are we shallow. Anyway, on to the joke... "Do

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake? A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables? A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and grain. And what are these? Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100%

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true? A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Letters from the idiotThe world's oldest profession? (20.1.2006, 12:50 UTC)
"Sir," writes a Telegraph reader, "I am continually reading,particularly of late, that prostitution is the 'oldest profession'.This is not so. The oldest profession is that of a gardener, orhorticulturist. In the Bible, Genesis 2:8 reads, 'God planted agarden eastward in Eden', and 2:15: 'Then the Lord God took the man[Adam] and put him in the garden to tend and keep it'. I rest mycase."

Letters from the idiotOutsourcinging the outsourcing to the outsourcer (20.1.2006, 12:03 UTC)
Oh my eyes have crossed... According to RTE news the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Micheal Martin, signed an agreement on scientific and technological co-operation with his Indian counterpart, Kapil Sibal. It appears the many companies in India want to outsource some of their tasks to Europe. The Irish ministers want at least some of this pie. However, a lot of work is being outsourced from Europe (well, the UK) and the US to India. Which implied that the job chain is jumping f...

Sometimes the universe throws alarms your way. For example last night I was up reading. When for no apparant reason, I heard interglatic gunfire at 1am. It took me a while to figure out that the sound was comming from a box of books (I have lots of boxes of books. I need shelves.) In the bottom of the box was a Lilo & Stitch toy I picked up in 2002. This toy was a rubber ball that makes noises

I'm not a huge fan of the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Unless of course there's a stage show to go with it. So I wouldn't have a Rocky Horror party. So I wouldn't want the proper clobber. But I can think of some people who would like them too much. take care, Will

First off, thanks for the link Rick. T'is the season of spending too much. So, as is traditional, Mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas... Well, lets see. I do need shelves (There are a lot of books still in boxes from the move, with nowhere to go). However I can get that myself. I do want tiles, as I need to tile the wall behind the shower, but the temporary solution is working very well

And an interview with himself. The interview was actually in promotion of his new book "Hard Tackles and Dirty Baths", but I'll let that pass. In the interview he said...

The Capital Cinema is closing it's doors tonight. Its hard for me to say I'll miss it. The place was a bit run down. It was also unusual in that (until recently) it was the only cinema in Cork City not owned by Cork people. The Capital was part of the Ward Anderson group, who own most of the Dublin City Centre cinemas. (The Gate and Douglas are owned by someone in Cork. Blackpool and

I'm sorry. I just don't get modern art. I thought I did, but I find it hard to see a lot of the art in it. I went to the Terminal show in the Triskel, and for the most part, I was bored. Not quite fair, I found the "travelling armchair" (an artist decorated the lift as a sitting room) quirky. I found the curtained-off video booth of the prostitutes in India (literally street walking you smutty
