If you look at Google.com now, they have a xmas theme. Unfortunately, their snowflake isn't right. Snowflakes have six-fold symmetry, not eight! [/pedant]

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Oh well, if we're being pedantic: :laughter:

Snow crystals can have 6-fold symmetry, but the majority don't; snow flakes, which are usually amorphous agglomerations of crystals, have none.

Not so much a funny website (in fact, definitely not a funny website, but a very good one!), but a list of the searches that have brought people to anarchic_teapot's website:

Searchindipity, February 2012: It doesn’t get better

Has to be seen to be believed. I'll maybe have a closer look at our websites and see if there are any as bizarre as "does reiki make you fart" and "dalek tea"...

IIRC the New Scientist used to have a little cfeature involving Goggling searches that found accidental funnies like this when spelling mistakes were searched on. If you enter "goggle" Google "corrects" this to Google.

Derek Acorah and ‘spirit guide’ split because of ‘artistic differences’

Television medium, Derek Acorah and his ‘spirit guide’ Sam have announced they are to split. They have cited their ‘artistic differences’ as the main reason, with Sam becoming ever more disillusioned with the vague nature of Derek’s readings.

In an interview via Ouija Board, Sam told reporters ‘the level of detail I used to give Derek would have been enough identify even the most bland looking of people, but so he could string out a reading, and his £120 per hour fee, he would give the bare minimum. At our last reading together, I told him about a 76 year old lady called Mrs Hume-Winslow, that used to work as a horse trainer, and died of pneumonia. She had three kids, the eldest of which was in prison for fraud. All he asked the 2,000 strong audience was ’Does anybody know a Mary’. I mean, why do I bother?’

Although the nature of Derek’s readings has been put forward as the reason for the split, Sam has also complained he was treated like a slave. ‘He takes all the credit, but I do all the work, even penning his first book’ he complained. ‘The pressure that put on me drove me to drink. It was the first book to be ghost written by an alcoholic spirit.’

Speculation over Mr Acorah’s future has already begun, with predictions ranging from him not being able to connect the living with the deceased, to him not being able to see any film with Bruce Willis. He has said he was disappointed by the sudden decision of his former spirit guide and denied some reports this is just a publicity stunt. ‘He has made me look silly and potentially taken away my livelihood’ he told us. ‘Why would I want to get back with him? He’s dead to me.’

Mr Acorah has also reacted angrily to criticism that he should really have seen it coming. ‘How could I have known what Sam was thinking’ he snapped. ‘I’m not bloody psychic!’

I am told that the pain of childbirth is approximately equivalent to that of passing a large kidney stone, which is something that my testosterone has not prevented (and something which I'd rather not contemplate), so :yahbooh: to you too! :wink:
