Here's a dilemma .... With all your honour and dignity what would you do?

By giving an honest answer you will be able to test where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you will have to make a decision one way or the other. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please

I read this in Google's News some months ago, I think?

Unconscious, bruised and lying over a $29 DVD player, paramedics finally reached Patricia VanLester. Hundreds of shoppers at the Wal-Mart hadn’t stopped shopping to help. “They walked over her like a herd of elephants,” said her sister, Linda. “All they cared about was their stupid DVD player.”

World Team 2004
I heard today at The George and Dragon Public House that many divers from the area attended the Thailand jump..

Top-ranked skydivers from around the world will work together toward one unified goal: to set a new FAI World Record for the Largest Freefall Formation. The current World Record for this category stands at an impressive 300. To honor Her Majesty's 72nd birthday, World Team plans to raise the bar a notch - a big notch - by completing a massive 372-way freefall formation, and registering it in the archives of the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and Guinness Book of World Records.

The Design of Everyday Things


Don Norman's Emotional Design is now out
I just bought a copy of Donald Norman's new book, Emotional Design: Why we love (or hate) everyday things (Basic Books). This is the long-awaited sequel to the immortal classic, The Design of Everyday Things, which everyone should have read. Don Norman is due to give a talk at ETech, so I'm hoping to do a story based on that and an interview I did with him (mainly about the book) late last year.

Was Diana's Extremely Convenient Death an Accident?

Princess Diana said in her BBC TV interview that she was a problem for the British royal family because she was a rebel and REFUSED to go quietly. She went "with a bang" (in fact a crash; bang; wallop).

update John Trivolta says about The Dance in Washington circa 1985..
[on Parkinson Travolta says he was asked by the first lady if he would dance with the princess - was told then to ask d at midnight to dance as it was - a dream]

'She started to dance kind of strongly. So I gently pressed her hand down and put my other hand on her waist. It was to say 'let me lead because I know what I'm doing'
