Carnivorous Clock Eats Bugs

pickle_in_being Powered by bugs? (197 comments)

Then what keeps the fly paper strap turning? Does that also works on power extracted from bugs?
I assume that the clock itself doesn't know when there are bugs on the fly paper, so the fly paper strap has to keep moving constantly.
And all of this works on the power of one or several bugs?

Impressive if it's true...

The Real Story Behind Gaming Addiction

pickle_in_being Re:Bring on the scientists (300 comments)

''The article (thankfully) mentions the probable underlying mental illnesses that contribute to these sorts of crimes, whereas the Jack Thompsons of the world see games as the cause of crime, rather than as a changeable variable that could have been television, film, a newspaper, food, a car, a curfew, and so on.'' The changeable variable could be PEANUT BUTTER! In every criminal residence you may find games, but you will find peanut butter!

Conficker Downloads Payload

pickle_in_being april fools? (273 comments)

I think it would have been more logical for conficker to download it's payload on the 1st of April itself, so that people would take the threat less serious.
