    Why NASA's twin Voyagers probes are the most important spacecraft ever launched — and could be the last evidence of humanity's existence

    Chuck Berry in space. (Johnny B Good is on both gold records)

    In a couple of billion years that is all that will be left of our civilization

    I've always gotten a kick out of the cartoon with the alien holding up a sign:
    More Chuck Berry!

    If that's all that will be left, we surely need a sign that says, "MORE COWBELL!!" :D :D

    Is Apple copying Palm's WebOS?

    I had a Sony Clie PDA. Half the stuff that Android and Windows touts, it did it long before.
    I"d use it today, but the resolution stinks. 640x480. Otherwise I still have all my software.

    We had IR instead of Bluetooth, but it worked and wasn't a battery hog. You could go device to device just by touching them. (Our office updated ACT files that way)

    Woman trapped in window trying to retrieve poo after Tinder date

    A woman who threw her poo out of her date's toilet window because it "would not flush" had to be rescued after she got stuck trying to retrieve it.

    The amateur gymnast was on a first date with Bristol student Liam Smith when she "panicked" and threw the faeces out of the window.

    It did not land in the garden, but became wedged between two non-opening windows.

    After climbing in head first after it, she became wedged.

    Mr Smith had to call the fire service for help.

    Cassini has had a grand tour since it's launch in 1997. My two youngest daughters and I have our signatures on a CD attached to the probe. Cassini did us proud.
