  1. Last month Entertainment Weekly quoted a friend of the actor who confirmed that Phoenix was playing a joke at the public's expense, claiming he told him 'It's a put-on. I'm going to pretend to have a meltdown and change careers, and Casey is going to film it,'


    But Phoenix hit back and angrily denied the claims.


    'I can see how people might think it is shocking,' he said. 'But by saying my life is a joke or the thing that I love is a joke - well, that bothers me.'

  2. The story gets better:


    It began as a feel-good story designed to lift America’s spirits during another week of grim economic news.


    But last night increasingly difficult questions were being asked about the birth on Monday of healthy octuplets – only the second known case in US medical history – after it emerged that the mother may have undergone fertility treatment, even though she already had six children.


    In vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment guidelines produced by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine say that a woman under 35 should have no more than two embryos implanted at a time. The organisation said last night that it had started an investigation into the case.


    Patients must also typically undergo a thorough evaluation before qualifying for IVF treatment.

  3. Quote:
    While admitting that Britain is “in the eye of the stormâ€, the Prime Minister said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph that the country will see off the worst of the slowdown if the public can harness the “British spirit†and remain resolute and upbeat.

    Gin, perhaps?
  4. Just on the news about Isuzu (car company) workers... and the characters used for the company name was something I have never seen before. ã„ã™ was ok but the "zu" was some funny squiggle that I'm sure isn't hiragana..... anyone know what I'm talking about and what that is?



  5. Just on the news about some "B kyu gourmet" festival.


    Seems B kyu means like real everyday food (ramen, gyoza, soba) rather than high class restaurant set meals (which I presume are A kyu).


    That right?


    If so, which do you prefer? I'm definitely B kyu
