From the WTF department....

What happens when you combine Flipper + Rambo and add in a healthy dose of natural disaster?

"Armed dolphins, trained by the US military to shoot terrorists and pinpoint spies underwater, may be missing in the Gulf of Mexico."

Has anyone else noticed how we never hear good news after the military decides to monkey around with some animal so as to make it more dangerous? I mean, ok fine, it's clear the powers that be don't watch the news (see stupid quote #20 here), but come on guys, watch a little sci-fi once in a while so you can anticipate these problems. Otherwise, next thing you know Dubbya is going to be going on about "sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads!" ;)

... and in other news

Courtesy of Boing Boing, for any of you folks who like puzzle type games, check out Professor Fizzwizzle. It's fun, the graphics are amusing and the puzzles are genuinely challenging (in fact it's the first game in a long time that I not only bought but which has kept my attention for a while). I got my almost 40 year old brother and my 3 year old niece playing it and they both love it :). I highly recommend this game.

Oh, and for you fans of old school games, Lemmings was implemented in DHTML. Now you can help those funky blue lemmings make it out alive (or not if you're in a particularly evil mood ;).
