Train cancelled after conductor succumbs to diarrhea
OSAKA -- About 300 passengers were forced to leave a train at JR Tsukaguchi Station in Amagasaki after the conductor suffered a violent bout of diarrhea in the driver's cabin early on Friday, West Japan Railway Co. (JR West) said.

The evacuation took place after the conductor fell ill just before the train pulled in at Tsukaguchi Station. The driver scheduled to take over the train entered the cabin at about 6.15 a.m. to find the floor covered in feces.

Station workers immediately cleaned the floor of the driver's room, but decided to cancel the train due to the lingering aroma.

Passengers were merely told that the train would be delayed, and were asked to board the next one. (Mainichi)

And it's sung by Ian Gillan, for Lord's sake.[/i]

How the hell did Ian Gillan end up singing on boss music for a JRPG?

Halloween - the remake.

And it's bad.

Uwe Boll bad.

Just reinforces my theory that remakes suck.

Saw the Simpsons movie today.

Not as funny as Hot Fuzz - yet certainly wasn't terrible.

Koudelka - I found it slow and clunky at first but got into it because of the story.
5377  The Rest / General Discussions / Walrus penis sells for $8,000 at Beverly Hills action on: August 27, 2007, 12:09:26 AM

A 4 1/2-foot-long, fossilized penis bone from an extinct walrus sold for $8,000 Sunday at an auction here.

The item was sold to the company that runs the Ripley's Believe It or Not museums. The price will run $9,600 when auction fees are included.

"Their corporate office bought it and they'll probably display it around the country," said Josh Chait, director of operations for the I.M. Chait Gallery, his family's auction house.

There were only three bidders and the contest lasted only a couple of minutes, Chait said.

The final price was well below the $12,000 to $16,000 the item had been expected to bring.

"I thought it was a bargain," Chait said.

Discovered in Siberia, the fossilized baculum, or penis bone, is from a species of walrus that went extinct 12,000 years ago. The piece curves to a point and is covered with weathered skin and dry muscle tissue.

The auction house said it was believed to be the largest known mammal penis fossil.

"I'm glad it's going to a museum and not a private collection" so it can on public display, Chait said. "It's definitely something everyone should see once in their life."

While unusual fossils are prized by collectors, a fossilized baculum might have been a little too special to attract many bidders.

"Only a limited number of people really want it," Chait acknowledged.

He admits he isn't one of them.

"I appreciate its ... historical significance," he said. "But I wouldn't have it over my mantel."

5380  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Should I begin my Suikoden II hunt? on: August 21, 2007, 05:10:13 PM
Somehow I totally missed this topic.

Is it worth it? In my opinion, yes.

I got *very* lucky and found Suikoden 1 and 2 in a combined package for $100. I took and never regretted it.

You can probably find Suikoden 1 fairly cheap as well.

I say yes. Get it if you can find it for a semi reasonable price.

Like, under $100.

What a great movie.

You watched it again?

Saw The Weather Man on telly last night. It was good, very entertaining. Michael Caine's character was awesome and I actually didn't mind Nicholas Cage (considering that I only like a handful of his movies).

No, that was the first time I had seen it.
