Women are twelve times more radioactive than men....

Actually, that's a lie.

I've been reading lies and thinking about lying here. I love the site's warning:

for any specks of truth, and reject any found
to contain even a glimmer of reality, we cannot
guarantee that our lies are not, in fact, true.

Great site. I like Stephen Fry's lie - Shakespeare's middle name was ... Colin:-)

Have just done your do and don't meme. T'was fun:-)

But then he goes and spoils it by an unprovoked attack on journalists.

Why do people think journalists are fair game for rudeness? When Diana died, several people virtually accused me of personally killing her.

Sorry, brief soapbox moment. I'll go and take my coffee now.

Ooo Lane, I'll go and look now. Brilliant.
And yes, Alex, but he thinks of himself as a journalist, doesn't he, so I suppose he's making fun of what other people think? I agree though that you are fair game - I have sat through many a tantrum with journalist-haters who really don't know what they're talking about. Funnily enough a lot of them have been architects. I make no comment about that, just an observation.

I meant journalists are fair game, of course, Alex. Not you personally! Oops, better go and have MY coffee...
