More Who Casting News

Billie Piper appears to be front-running the companion crowd. Looks like a generic popster turned actress. Some will say she's hot but she's no Nicola Bryant far as I can tell.

The New Doctor Who Has Been Cast

And it's Christopher Eccleston. Who? Remember Shallow Grave? He was in that. Played the guy that ended up spying on the others from the attic. Looks like good casting to me.

Hypno-Toad caught on tape

Donald "I Cannot Tell A Lie...er, maybe I can" Rumsfeld practising his craft. Courtesy MoveOn.org and Tom Tomorrow (link obtained from "This Modern World") (Best if watched on a high-speed connection--I'm on dial-up and it took ages to load up)

What Would Mel Gibson Do?

Violence breaks out in Kosovo yet again...over a supposed drowning incident involving some Albanian and Serbian youths..it turned out that it seemed to be an accident, and not a malicious act, but hey, what more do you need to fire up another war with people who don't share your faith?

Some guy tried to crucify himself in an act of suicide, but ran into problems when trying to nail his other hand to his makeshift cross--and dailed 911 with his free hand. Just remember kids, when performing a crucifixion, it's important to have a buddy to help out. (link obtained via Cheek, cheers to M.A.D. for that.)

From 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 250?!

Is it better screening, a revised definition, or a alarming increase in autism rates? This article discusses autism research but seems curiously indifferent to the numbers it cites? If the answer to my first question is the alarming increase, I'd hope researchers are looking at what's different about our water, air, and the food we eat. When people say they don't give a crap about BGH, allowable mercury levels, regulating polluters, all that tree-hugging environmental stuff it's so easy to dismiss, this is the stuff I hope they consider could be a result of starving government regulatory agencies of the funds needed to fulfill their mandates and weakening the regulations themselves.
