24 June 2008 - 08:05 PMJust thought I'd post this news cos I found it interesting.
Yes it's official, America is no longer the world's most obese country. While US figures have gotten no better, a certain country has gotten just that little bit more portly. It is - wait for it - Australia.
Rather surprisingly, Australia has knocked America off the topspot. With a rate of 26% of its population classed as obese as opposed to 25% for the US, it's now number one.
Any thoughts on this? Anyone surprised at it being Australia?

'A soldier, who was at the trials, said: "This technology is incredible. If I hadn't been present I wouldn't have believed it. I looked across the fields and just saw grass and trees - but in reality I was staring down the barrel of a tank gun."'
And these things are ready by 2012
Considering that these are Challenger 2's that are going to be upgraded, there's now pretty much no chance of them being taken out whatsoever. As if all the other major military-related advances weren't enough, this should have potential enemies wetting themselves.
01 December 2007 - 11:21 AMWell, it's December, and 2007 is finally drawing to a close. And what a hell of a year for music it's been! As well as Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Police, Genesis and The Sex Pistols reforming, The Arctic Monkeys released their second stellar album "Favourite Worst Nightmare" and Radiohead exceeded all expectations once again with their new album "In Rainbows".
But what's your favourite songs of the year so far? List as many or as few as you like.
Here's some of mine:
Baby Fratelli - The Fratellis
http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=gqAJrIYjCLM (ooh, Hot Fuzz)
Flathead - The Fratellis
Take Her Back - The Pigeon Detectives
Johnny Sniper - Enter Shikari
http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=dWbJKOThJAg (warning aquired taste)
Fluorescent Adolescent - Arctic Monkeys
(I'd post the video but it's basically a violent gangwar between mafia gangsters and... clowns? What the hell?)
Happy Ending - Mika
http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=Sl4WN-aOWDY (Warning - popsong! But one of the best I've ever heard.)
Icky Thump - The White Stripes
Invincible - Muse
Away From Here - The Enemy
Generator - Holloways
http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=8EyOlP9IyFg (happiest song I've heard in years)
Hospital Beds - Cold War Kids
http://uk.youtube.co...h?v=eH-Yeh3fEsk (one of the best songs I've ever heard.)
That's all I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure there's more great songs out this year though.
So, thoughts anyone?
29 October 2007 - 05:24 PMI don't know if anyone else has noticed but a huge number of popular/quality bands are reforming. Every other week there's news of another stellar band reforming, or at least one that was once very popular. Basically this makes me very very happy.
Here's the list of bands reforming this year:
Rage Against The Machine,
The Jesus And Mary Chain,
Alice In Chains,
My Bloody Valentine,
The Sex Pistols,
Apart from some pop bands that used to be popular, this list is incredibly exciting for me. While a couple of these are another tour, some are back for much longer; for example, The Who, The Eagles and Queen are all releasing new albums along with many of the others.
This is the best news all year. I'm going to get as many tickets as possible for all this. It's a hell of a year for music
