"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

A Belgian traffic radar sent a speeding ticket to the owner of a Mini last December. Not too surprising...if I had one I'd go zoom as well. However, the ticket charged that the driver had been going 3380 kph, a.k.a. Mach 3!!! Sensibly, the judge voided the charge.

We all know that most of what's on the BBC is superior to things on American TV (see, for direct comparison, NBC's "Coupling" versus the original). However, the Brits have taken reality and educational TV to a new height. In order to attract viewers who don't usually like eduTV, the program Lab Rats will televise a scientific experiment/contest: A Sperm Race.

If only either of the contestant-donors was cute enough for me to care!
