In reply to UKC News: Not bad so far!
In reply to Jack Geldard - Editor - UKC: I feel so hip, 'new media' and 'ahead of the curve' because I read this story at least a week back via a tweet from an American climbing friend/fellow twitterer!

Now I know how cool I am, I think I really need to buy a fixie bike and get a tattoo or two...

In reply to UKC News: Black Diamond factory taken as crag swag.

A hairy geezer in a mouldy helly-hansen fibrepile and badly stained duvet jacket later said in a statement released by his lawyers that it was obvious they had abandoned the business after it had started to rain, and that he had intended to offer the return of their building in exchange for postage, a donation to mountain rescue and a pint in the Old Dungeon Ghyll.

The building proved to be in a dangerous state and was demolished after it was discovered that all the bolts previously holding it together had been chopped.

Doug Scott was unavailable for comment, citing a previous engagement with the International Olympic Committee.

Or the fact that Princess Di was probably laying pipes with the main suspect...
In reply to UKC News: Okay so far I'm thinking I'll add a secondary headline that reads:

Diamond Heist Stoppered: Employees keep cam, as thief steals computers.

Good work!

Any more?

Dumbness is a global human condition not exclusive to one place.

Only wish freedom was the same.
