FUCK this website

Signs with words covered up by stickers bearing the word “FUCK”. Yes, I am childish enough to find this funny.

Guardian Unlimited | Suspicious behaviour on the tube

Tube station shut down because of man “acting suspicously” (wearing an overcoat and sending text messages, apparently). Police arrest him and confiscate lots of computer/electronics equipment from his house. They eventually drop charges (although they don’t return his property). Unfortunately for them, said man has the skill and contacts to get his story told on the front page of The Guardian. Feeling safer, Britain?

‘Not a significant source of iron’

‘Not a significant source of iron’

I picked up a couple of bottles of Irn Bru today for the first time in ages. I would never have thought to describe it as a 'carbonated citrus fruit drink'. I'd go with 'sugar, caffeine and orange colouring that *stains*'

Updated to add: Aha! Upon closer inspection, this is the label Barr use specifically for the US market (the FDA nutrition panel should have given that away). That explains the bizarre disclaimers for my adopted crazy-ass-litigious homeland.
