    I got a big kick out of this one this morning
    Link: BBC Says Youtube aids Flat Earth conspiracy

    So somehow, YouTube is helping spread the stupidity?

    I love the sample size of the "survey"

    Re: Unintelligibly illiterate BBC News article link text

    I'm puzzled by the reporting on Brunei this week. The headline reads "Brunei implements stoning to death under new anti-LGBT laws".

    Why on earth is there this worldwide focus on the LGBT community in this instance?

    The penalty is identical for same-sex and mixed-sex breaches of the law. Brunei law makes sex outside of marriage illegal. The same punishment is applied to men and to women for engaging in sex outside of marriage regardless of the gender of their partner. This is not an LGBT issue, it is a power-crazed religious insanity issue. Sultan Hassan al Bolkiah has his personal religious faith in monotheism for which I would happily see him committed to an asylum for re-education along with the entire hierarchy of the Church of England. Extending that personal religious faith into the political sphere and using it to dictate legislation should, here and everywhere, be a crime against humanity.

    What's needed isn't LGBT protection, it's the total abandonment of this delusional belief in a non-existent all-powerful bogey-god regardless of what name it carries.

    I'm puzzled by the latest aspect of this story:



    Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah on Sunday extended a moratorium on the death penalty to cover the new legislation.

    Brunei says it won't enforce death penalty for gay sex


    So the amputations are still on track?

    Brunei clearly remains a land of medieval barbarity in the 21st century.

    The system would be able to identify the temperatures of individual fields of about 40 square km, 10 times more detailed than is currently possible.

    What?

    That might, just possibly, be out by a factor of a million. Depending on what it's meant to mean, which is not an easy guess.

    Putting her to bed, he says: "I love you tonnes."



    For goodness sake BBC, don't metricate idioms!!

    A tonne is a metric unit of mass, 1000kg.

    A ton is an English idiomatic expression meaning "lots".

    The word ton is not obsolete. The script-writer was not referring to a weight, and if he had been it would anyway have been the current American Imperial unit which is still called the ton.

    I detest repetitive language abuse and this was not a spelling error.

    "Butterfly previously extinct in England bred in forest"

    Buy your sub-editors a dictionary subscription, BBC. Get them to look up words like "extinct". This level of imprecision is pitiful.

    Thousands of dead fish in Kentucky river after Jim Beam warehouse fire

    How on earth is that considered newsworthy?

    The most recent figure I can easily bump into is that "in 2005, the United States harvested 4,888,621 tonnes of fish from wild fisheries". I would say that's of the order of a million times more nasty, with the added insult that it's deliberate. If anything's newsworthy relating to fish it's this commercial Armageddon, not a minor instance of pollution in a backwater tributary of the Ohio river.
