I’d thought about writing a post about Investigate’s idiotic cover story, but didn’t bother, as it’s so ludicrous that no-one could get taken in by their half-truths. Well, sadly I was wrong. From the Dom Post yesturday:
Fire starts near flat’s light bulb
Ffs! Still, thanks to the interweb, there’s already others mocking them: Fear ncertaintly and doubt, morning edition
“Strange how much of the country has been using the new bulbs for years without any problems and as soon as the government makes ’em compulsory they start bursting into flames and blowing up buildings.”
I’ll explain it very simply: anything electrical can get hot and start a fire. The more efficient it is, the less hot it gets.
Ah f’it, let’s take the satire all the way to the top:
Eco Bulbs involved in double murder
I love Dim Post.
In other news, here’s the official, approved and certified method for making tea: “The British Standard Method for Preparation of a Liquor of Tea for Use in Sensory Tests“. Strictly speaking, it’s also an ISO standard. Does this mean there’s a shadowy global conspiracy to control our brains and morals by forcing us to make tea using only the approved method? If you’re an Investigate journalist, then probably. Also, tea has 1080 in it, so it’s pretty guaranteed, one cup could be fatal!
