Google Sea View

Because Google is so poor and needs lots more money (sarcasm if you didn't pick it up), they are teaming up with Australia’s University of Queensland and insurance firm Catlin to create Google Sea

Using special vehicles (pictured above) equiped with 360 degree view cameras will pick up nearly 300ft of reef, at up to 90ft deep, and whats more, some of the photography will be done by robots. Nice one Google. I take my hat off to you.

Kling what?

So today I was talking to a few of my nerd friends about Star Trek, and how amazing it was that there was a whole language made up for it (Its called 'Klingon'). One of my non-nerd friends herd this and casually asked me 'what's Klingon? is it like a kind of glad wrap?'. Gotta love idiots.

I made my 100th post yesterday. That's quite a lot. If every letter 'z' in this sentence represented 100, that's how many posts I would have. Go me!

What the F**k?

So I put up a new poll asking 'Do you believe in God?' with answers 'yes' 'no' and 'maybe'. And the strangest thing happened. Somebody clicked yes. WHY OH WHY doesn't anyone get it? there are so many reasons God doesn't exist, but they don't listen. Even if I make some sort of Old Man Rant,

The Only Good song with a fiddle

The Charlie Daniel's Band - The Devil went down to Georgia

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind and he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due:
"I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."
The boy said: "My name's Johnny and it might be a sin,
"But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

Johnny you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard.
'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards.
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold.
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul.

The devil opened up his case and he said: "I'll start this show."
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow.
And he pulled the bow across his strings and it made an evil hiss.
Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded something like this.
When the devil finished, Johnny said: "Well you're pretty good ol' son.
"But sit down in that chair, right there, and let me show you how its done."

Fire on the mountain, run boys, run.
The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pan, pickin' out dough.
"Granny, does your dog bite?"
"No, child, no."

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
He laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet.
Johnny said: "Devil just come on back if you ever want to try again.
"cause I told you once, you son of a gun, I'm the best there's ever been."

And he played fire on the mountain, run boys, run.
The devil's in the house of the risin' sun.
Chicken in the bread pan, now they're pickin' out dough.
"Granny, will your dog bite?"
"No, child, no."
