    I think she's getting "Jesus" mixed up with "Chris Huhne". A surprisingly common mistake. At least if you're Chris Huhne, that is.

    @challenge_hanukkah Would have been a better opening move from the govt. if they did that.

    The legal dispute over the ownership of the Star Control brand has turned nasty.

    I actually picked up Star Control: Origins when it was discounted a couple of weeks ago. It's decent. Not perfect - the planet scanning could give Mass Effect 2 a run for its money in terms of tedium - but it definitely captures some of the feel of Star Control 2, even if it doesn't/can't use the old alien races and ships. The cartoony visual style works well, the dialogue is generally well written and it captures the Pythonesque tone of SC2.

    Given this dispute's been running for a while now and doesn't look set to end any time soon, I'm not sure why they didn't just drop the Star Control brand from the title and market it as a spiritual successor.

    @drhickman1983 In fairness, while I've no problem at all with spiders in the UK, I suspect my reaction to seeing one in Australia would be along those lines.

    God almighty, have you seen the article linked from that one about the huntsman spider carrying a bloody mouse? That can absolutely do one...

    @Rogueywon I emigrated there years ago and the one thing I had issues with was not knowing which spiders were the nasty buggers. I had to assume every one was a homicidal, leaping, venomous face hugger just to be on the safe side.

    The article literally says it was mocked up, and they couldn't show the real picture for legal reasons.
