Brief newslets

Arthur C. Clarke, marking his “90th orbit of the sun”, predicts...

“commercial space travel will one day be commonplace.”

Again?!! Clarke predicted back in the 1960s scheduled Pan Am flights plying the void between Earth and Moon by the year 2000. That turned out well...

And gee, this dad is strict!

After catching his 15-year-old smoking pot, a father sold the hard-to-get Guitar Hero III video game he bought his son for $US90 for Christmas at an online auction, fetching $US9,000. ...

The naughty son, however, will not go without a present on Christmas.

“I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo. Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing with the Stars ... I know he will just love them,” the father said, tongue-in-cheek.

Finally, hope these wannabes aren’t sitting around waiting for their shoes to ring with a job offer.

The success of the James Bond movies has given the British secret intelligence service a recruitment headache — too many cranks want to join MI6.
