    In the news

    Thought we could have a news thread? ..... Not everyone gets to see the various news from everywhere around the world... so bring on your interesting/funny/outrageous news from your area.

    Over here right now (I'm sure you've seen, (as above) maybe you haven't)

    There are 1,400 cars on board, including 1,200 Jaguar and Land Rover products, 65 Minis as well as 105 JCB machines.

    Thankfully (only):
    Two crew members out of 25 rescued by RNLI Lifeboats and the Solent Coastguard on Saturday suffered non-life threatening injuries.
    I'm thinking the manufacturers are glad they ticked the insurance box for this one (They did tick the insurance box didn't they?)

    Bummer. Bet that is going to take some serious engineering to get it back upright again.

    On the midst of it all, The onion posted an image that made me crack up laughing. I can't post it, too many genitals are showing.
