Good to see you're OK mate. I'd be quite happy to live my life without having to deal with that sort of experience.

Honestly, it was thrilling at the same time as it was terrifying. The only thing that sucks balls is no power, it was so disgustingly hot last night.

I have a solar usb charger so I can keep both our phones topped up and we have 4G back, but sleeping is near impossible between the heat and the mozzies

And worst news of all, they've restored power to the city centre, so work is back on tomorrow!

Strangely, through all this, we still have hot water

Cheers all the reports I saw said 3.

Good to see you're alright mate, know a few rednecks up there that got hammered.

Meh, it's only done it when I've turned location services on, which I only do when I want the phone to know where I am.

Didn't know what thread to post this in but since Boko Haram are a terrorist group here's as good a place as any. A win for the good guys, Nigerian army rescued 300 women/girls from the *****.

Great interview about the case for WMD's and war with Iraq.

Well, you can't post it in the joke thread. :-(

John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I hope that Stewart continues on with some other show when he finishes up at The Daily Show, because he has done some of the more interesting interviews with people over the years and they deserve more airtime. The Daily Show itself has become such a stale format and when he's not doing interviews like these or spending the entire show focusing on one specific issue he looks like he's just going through the motions.

Dave sounds like a real **** if he just comes over to your house and teaches your kids about how evil the world is.
