Beerious George: Formaldehyde? *hic* I've been told by 3 separate bartenders that draught beer has formaldehyde in it, that's why they only drink from bottles. A Google search shows at best that there may be two reasons for formaldehyde being in beer. (1) Can manufacturing and (2) ethanol breakdown. Are either harmful enough to avoid draught beer? more inside

TISWAS - If you grew up in the Southern UK in the 70s-80s, you know exactly what Tiswas was was, and images of The Cage, the Phantom Flan Flinger, Lenny Henry, Chris Tarrant, Sally James' tits, people covered in gunge, and Sylvester McCoy pre-Dr Who dressed as a sunflower getting doused in horse shit or having nails driven into his nose while gurning spring instantly to mind. If you're from anywhere else in the world, you will have no idea, and trying to explain this Saturday morning kids' show to you will be largely like me trying to explain what was so good about that acid trip I took in 1986 when I mind-melded with a herron. more inside

Bedbugs Attack New York City. "'They're insatiable,' he said five minutes into the bug's feeding. To show off the insect's special sucking stylus, Mr. Sorkin removed a bedbug nymph from a container and placed it on his finger. Even under a bright light and being nudged by tweezers, it began to feed and turned rust-colored as it filled with blood. Bedbugs...can live longer than a year, with the female laying up to 500 eggs in a lifetime. An adult bedbug can survive unfed for up to a year." Article includes a photo too. They look small. more inside
