Chinese General Contractor, Broad Sustainable Building, is running a project to build the world's highest building (just higher than Burj Khalifa) in 90 days. By 'build', they mean on-site construction.

actually, they've revised their timeline to 210 days. So far the project hasn't received approval to go ahead yet last i heard.

Now the question is....will clothes be ripped?
I'm also wondering if they'll go "canon" as promised, but the producers have set up a lottery-style drawing (as if the show could be a runaway hit), and those lucky to have their tickets (cost -- 6300 yen) picked will have a chance to watch.

UK government's official job site advertises fake 007 position


Quote:
Do you like traveling? Eliminating targets? The UK government's officially-sponsored job site has the perfect opportunity waiting for you. The Secret Intelligence Service is currently looking for a Target Elimination Specialist, job code 007, "to remove people whose continued existence poses a risk to the effective conduct of public order." Should you be successful in your application, there are a number of perks to the job, including an array of passports, watches, jet packs, mini-submarines, and a Walther PPK. In case you hadn't figured it out for yourself, the job is unfortunately fake.

Code Found on Pigeon Baffles British Cryptographers

"Britain’s code-breakers acknowledged on Friday that an encrypted handwritten message from World War II, found on the leg of a long-dead carrier pigeon in a household chimney in southern England, has thwarted all their efforts to decode it since it was sent to them last month."

Of course, there's always the conspiracy theorist in the crowd. This one says they did decode the message, but it suggested something dicey about relations between the British Army and the French Resistance that the Brits do not want to release.

"Mr. Martin said he was skeptical of the idea that GCHQ had been unable to crack the code. “I think there’s something about that message that is either sensitive or does not reflect well” on British special forces operating behind enemy lines in wartime France, he said in a telephone interview. 'I’m convinced that it’s an important message and a secret message.' "

Uh-huh.

That, or it's just too short and lacking in context.

The article discusses technical reasons why the message is difficult to decipher such as the possible use of a "one-time pad" where the key was known only to the sender and recipient.

There were a lot of really smart people working at Bletchley Park in those days. I'm not surprised they could devise codes that can withstand modern decryption methods.

While browsing that site I came across this unusual item, the "Alan Turing" edition of Monopoly. Apparently the spaces on the board recount events in Turing's life. I wonder if it includes the British Government's prosecution of him for being homosexual which led to his death, perhaps by his own hand, soon thereafter.

Yeah. I'm just not seeing the conspiracy.

Even the one time pad can be broken (if it's generated improperly, which isn't that rare - random numbers are harder than you'd think), but it takes a larger sample than one lousy paper message carried by a pigeon. (And, uh, maybe a clear text. Not sure.)
