In the papers today...

News Corp and Microsoft's search engine Bing are reported to be ganging up on Google. News Corp is in the process of creating a new code whereby search engines have to pay to access articles from News Corp's affiliated publications like The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post. Microsoft are willing to pay, and thus articles would appear on their search engine Bing. Analysts say that this spells doom for News Corp. It's not because nobody will bother switching search engines just for a few bits of news available anywhere. It's because when you think about it, Rupert + Bing = Rubing. And that's very... shuddurgggh.

The Large Hadron Collider has just restarted. The $10 billion, 17-mile long particle accelerator that was launched earlier this year had to be shut down numerous times, including a recent incident that was caused by a bird dropping a piece of bread in the machine. Once spinning, the particle accelerator will continue it's search of Higgs' bosom. Scientists are hoping to discov... wha...? Not bosom? Oh, Boson? Is that like a very macho bison? Like, who the heck want's to find Higgs very macho bison? And what's Higgs gonna do while his bosom is missing? Sheesh. Finding bosoms is totally worth US$10 billion.

Fossils of an ancient species of super-crocodiles have been discovered. The fossils are said to belong to a type of crocolide that was 40 feet long, weighed eight tons and fed on dinosaurs. They walked on legs, and could run really fast. Scientists have so far assigned them nicknames like BoarCroc, RatCroc, PancakeCroc, DuckCroc and DogCroc. The creatures are ss....pffft.... sorry.
