While I still think that the fuss over it has been the silliest thing to happen this year, here's some interesting stuff about the blackout that happened last week in America (I refuse to call it "Blackout '03". Bloomin' self-obessessed country...). A before and after comparison for your viewing pleasure.
Actually, maybe this is the silliest thing to happen this year. It's becoming increasingly difficult to maintain my superiority complex over here. I can't even say that our television is better than theirs. Although the Americans did come up with this. It's a close thing though.
Life mimics art? It seems to in this case. on a largely unrelated note, this story shows that to many people "Batman" still means "camp 60's TV show", despite the comics industry's and Tim Burton's attempts to change that perception.
