Friday Fun-News in Brief

This week while in Spain,Gerry Adams suggested an Irish priest should mediate in the Spanish government's conflict with Basque terrorists.

Um,why exactly?More to the point,what priest would want that job?It reminds me of that Father Ted episode where Bishop Brennan threatens to send Ted somewhere in South America,to mediate between two local tribes.I don't think there'd be many takers for this job!

A leading astrophysicist has said that the universe is 'like a bottle of champagne'.
Professor Leonard Susskind,from Stanford University in California,believes that at the moment of creation the cork popped-and everything around us,the planets,stars and galaxies,is contained in one of a myriad bubbles.

Well,what do you know?The alcoholics were right all along.Life's problems can be solved through the bottle!
