    RARE roast beef splashed with meaty jus, pork enrobed in luscious crackling fat, perhaps a juicy, plump chicken ... these are feasts that come to mind when one thinks of quintessential British food. Lately, however, a new meat is gracing the British table: squirrel. Gamekeepers like David Wiggins, and others in England, hunt more gray squirrels to save the reds. Though squirrel has appeared occasionally in British cookery, history doesn’t deem it a dining favorite. Even during World War II and the period of austerity that followed, the Ministry of Food valiantly promoted the joys of squirrel soup and pie....

    Can you out-shoe al-Zaidi? Shoe-wielding Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi, who was catapulted to international prominence after throwing his shoes at President Bush during a press conference in Iraq, is now the star of the latest in viral Web games. "Sock and Awe" -- named after the military doctrine employed in the US operation to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq -- allows players to throw shoes at a figure of President Bush, as he ducks behind a podium. Al-Zaidi missed both his attempts before being dragged off by Iraqi security forces, but players of "Sock and Awe" have a...

    Since Senator Barack Obama was elected President of the U.S he has kept a low profile, appearing briefly on his way to the gym or on an official visit to the White House. But it appears all this time he has been battling pigs in lipstick and collecting American flags in Alaska. The 47-year-old is the hero of a new computer game called Super Obama World - a side-scrolling platform game in the style of classic 1990’s games such as Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. Obama is pitted against Russian soldiers and greedy oil-company executives In the first installment you guide...

  • New Accelerator Pedal by Continental Warns of Hazardous Situations

    Now being installed by a Japanese car manufacturer, the Accelerator Force Feedback Pedal (AFFP) gives warning of dangerous situations by vibrating and exerting counter pressure in the accelerator pedal. This should make the driver take his foot off the pedal and brake. With the aim of reducing accidents and CO2 emissions Continental's AFFP reaches market production for the first time. The system relies on warning the driver through sensory stimulation. The hazard warning is felt directly by the driver's foot, making him aware of the situation so that he can react. The pedal can also help to drive at...

    Outrage comes easy at the sight of 15-year-old Disney Channel billion-dollar phenomenon Miley Cyrus -- known to screaming 8-year-old girls as Hannah Montana -- appearing barebacked with a come-hither smile in a photo shoot for Vanity Fair. Did no one understand how the slinky satin-sheet photo would be greeted by the eyes of teenage boys -- or men twice her age? Parents are covering the eyes of their Disney-drenched little girls while their role model has a train wreck. Do we need another Britney Spears Show? But teenage boys are going wilder this week over a more dangerous cultural low:...

    In the mail today, I received a catalog from "The Lighter Side" (Memorable Gifts That Delight, Entertain and Amuse). On page 11, amidst the assorted tidbits that include Betty Boop, Elvis, and John Wayne items, I came across the "NEW! > Save the Earth One Turn At A Time!" Earth-Opoly game. A steal at only $29.98, the advertisement says, "100% recyclable board game teaches easy 'green' tips as players become caretakers of wondrous locations around the planet and increase property values by collecting Carbon Credits and trading them for clean air!" While encouraging a clean environment is good, the link...

    NEW YORK -- A company has created a pair of online video games based on Sept. 11, much to the chagrin of those who lost loved ones in the terror attacks. "I find it very disturbing," said Lee Ielpi, whose son was a New York City firefighter who died at ground zero. In one of the games, "New York Defender II" ("New York Defender" is its predecessor), a handful of jets roar over a map of New York City. Circles around the planes piloted by terrorists change from green to red, and they dart toward some of Manhattan's most prominent...
