Submission + - Science can regrow fingers like magic!

TurdTapper writes: "From the article:

Researchers are trying to find ways to regrow fingers — and someday, even limbs — with tricks that sound like magic spells from a Harry Potter novel.
There's the guy who sliced off a fingertip but grew it back, after he treated the wound with an extract of pig bladder.

I wonder what it would take to increase the size of my manhood...perhaps shredded shark cartilage."

Submission + - We are all going to die! (but not until 2036)

TurdTapper writes: "April 13th, 2036 to be precise.

An asteroid, named Apophis, has a 1 in 45,000 chance of striking the earth in 2036. And a group of astronauts, engineers and scientists said the U.N. should assume responsibility for saving us from asteroids.

With a name like Apophis, shouldn't we be looking to SG-1 instead of the U.N.?"

Submission + - Microsoft to lock pirates out of Vista PCs

TurdTapper writes: "From the USA Today article: Windows Vista will have new anti-piracy technology that locks people out their PCs if the operating system isn't activated within 30 days after installation.

If ignored, after 30 days Vista will display four options. The first will allow the user to activate online, the second is to run in reduced functionality mode, the third is to enter a product key and the fourth displays instructions to activate by phone, Lindeman said.

"In reduced functionality mode, we will let you use your browser for periods of up to an hour before we log you off," Lindeman said.

How nice of them to "let us use our browser"."
