Yahoo Zimbra with "Advanced web technoloy" 

I figure I will use it, it looks great. But if it wasn't owned by a big company like Yahoo! I'd use this phrase on the home page as evidence of the product being dodgy:

"Advanced web technoloy"

Use a spell checker!

Gay Brains More Like Other Sex 

Men tend to have symmetrical brains, whereas female brains tend to be larger on the right hemisphere.

Guess what... in this regard, lesbian brains look like those of men, and the brains of gay men look like those of women, according to a study by the Ka­r­o­lin­ska In­sti­tute in Stock­holm.

Given that many gay couples consist of one person being overtly gay, and the other not obvious at all, I'm wondering if those who are overt have a greater tendency to have a brain like the other sex - because they act more like them.

Get Fat and Live Longer 

That's the message to Australians this week, with two different news stories telling us seemingly contradictary facts:

1. We are the fattest country in the world (just beating the USA)

2. We live longer than any other nation (except Japan)

Plane Crashes - The Real Statistics 

If you want to convince yourself that flying isn't safe, check out this:

Boeing have built 1500 747s all time.
27 of them have had fatal crashes.
That's almost 2% of all 747s.

Would you drive a car knowing that there was a 2% chance that the very same car would one day be in a fatal collision?
