If you fall ill on a flight, you have to hope there is a doctor on board. So Dorothy Fletcher can count herself lucky.  
When she suffered a heart attack on a transatlantic flight from Manchester to Florida, she turned out to be on a plane full of cardiologists.  
Fifteen experts on their way to a cardiology conference responded when a stewardess asked for medical assistance.  
They stood up en masse and rushed to save Mrs Fletcher, 67, from Liverpool. They fed drips into her arms and used an onboard medical kit to control the life-threatening attack.  
Don't count on seeing dramatically smaller or cheaper iPod music players in the new year, despite Internet rumors that Apple Computer will announce them next week in San Francisco.

Dreamworld is a Dutch company that makes great films for the internet that you can find in the improv and flash sections of the home page. The Andy Kaufman cartoon won me over, see what you like!  
Really nice work.
...we could properly dispose of these two wastes of flesh. Guess who's feuding now, kiddies?
The script to the musical "We Will Rock You", a musical by the band Queen. Here's an official description of it from the official site :  
The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete!  
Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts.  
It's a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you're a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On Planet Mall all musical instruments are banned. The Company Computers generate the tunes and everybody downloads them. It is an age of Boy Bands and of Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance, hits are scheduled years in advance.  
Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality  
But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and wrote their own songs. They call that time, The Rhapsody.  
Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see  
Legend persists that somewhere on Planet Mall instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe and draw it from stone.  
Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man?  
He’s just a poor boy. From a poor family  
But the Ga Ga Cops are also looking for Galileo and if they get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rye.  
Who is Galileo? Where is the Hairy One's lost axe?  
Where is the place of living rock?  
Anywhere the wind blows  
The plot is much akin to the lost "Lifehouse" project of The Who except with a Queen theme. Really though, it addresses the degradation that is popular music today.  
Since most of us don't live in the UK, Australia, or Spain (where the play is currently being shown), this script will hopefully allow you experience it.
Good Guy opens up convenience store with breakfast in hand.  
Bad Guy sneaks up from behind, steals breakfast, and shoots Good Guy in the leg.  
Only in South Carolina.
Does your LF level exceed your age?
Does your IQ exceed your weight?
Really neat. I like the way it brings in some personal details on the developers. All ready posted by kid-ney: this is an update post.
As for back as 400 BC Roman laborers observed that feast of the Saturnalia in honor of their god, Saturn, and the reaping of the harvest. They made calls on friends, they exchanged gifts and it was customary for some of the gifts to bear greetings for a happy new year.  
from this sister site.  
Mummery is sort of like dressing up for Halloween. Leave it to the ancient Pagans to have a ritual that we still celebrate today. Happy New Year to all of Linkfilter.
The Chief Executive Officer of VoteHere, a developer of secure electronic voting technology confirmed this week that a hacker broke into its corporate network in October and accessed internal documents.  
Jim Adler, chief executive officer of the Bellevue, Washington-based firm, said the break-in may be related to a recent firestorm of concern over the security of online voting.
The 8bitpeoples first came together in 1999 as a collective of artists sharing a common love for classic videogames and an approach to music which reflected this obsession. Our primary interests were to provide quality music for free and most importantly to have fun. In the years since, we have grown in rank and expanded our goals.  
We continue to provide the vast majority of all our releases for free, including printable covers and inserts so that anyone with the desire to can "manufacture" physical copies of our albums. Furthermore, limited runs of most of our releases are available, offering superior sound quality to the mp3 releases and occasionally bonus tunes.
