BBC knuckle draggers

Meanwhile, the BBC declined to give a figure on the number of complaints it has received about Top Gear being pulled from the schedules due to the ongoing investigation.

And yet the BBC are all too keen to say at other times that they answer to the TV Tax license payers when someone says anything that offends even a single person.

The BBC are a joke.

Scummy BBC

“The recordings end up on Haniver’s website” – but that website is not worthy of a link from the oh-so-mighty BBC. Neither is “Another website, Fat, Ugly or Slutty“. I’m sure the BBC want links in but they are so stupidly precious about links out. How stupid are they? They link to twitter accounts but not to established sites. If the BBC can be so dismissive toward other site content then why should anyone behave decently to the BBC?

In the 1990s, they worked out one Venusian day – the time for the planet to spin round once – lasted 243.018 Earth days.

But now, the European Space Agency’s Venus Express orbiter shows Venus’ spin is getting even slower and a day on Venus is now six and a half minutes longer.

Scientists aren’t sure why.

It doesn’t matter. There are far more pressing things to be looking this. Scientists – and indeed the people that fund these things – should be looking at humanity now and doing what they can now because the now is far far more important.

You’d stop a kid daydreaming and tell them to get on with things wouldn’t you? So what makes these grownups special?

BBC javascript

When you watch BBC News online there is a black bar that appears on the video window when the mouse goes over it. Or near it. Or if you reload. It seems there are instances where it will just decide to appear and for such a little thing I get disproportionately annoyed. It drives me nuts. That page appears to load a ton of js and I have yet to find then block the few lines that do this – noscript should kill it when I find it – but if you happen to have been annoyed too and found the code I’d love to know.
