Sapporo to offer tastings of beer made with 'space' barley

Quote:
Beer made from barley cultured from that kept aboard the International Space Station (ISS) is ready for earthbound tipplers, Sapporo Breweries announced Tuesday.

Dubbed "Space Barley," the beer is made from barley descended from that kept at the ISS for five months in 2006.

Since the production will be limited, Sapporo Brewery will not be putting the beer on the market; but it plans to invite punters to tasting parties at the firm's six factories across the nation during January.
Hmm... space barley, huh? Is it made of space too?

Sapporo is one of my favorite beer brands, but I will have to pass on the space barley. Who knows what will happen after consumption.. You can't really trust scientists nowadays when it comes to food-related issues.

Hmm... yeah. But, more likely, when the 60 people get to the factory, they find out that space barley is more SPACE than barley. As in, empty.

For the record, I don't drink beer.

WTF, the NHS gives condoms for free!?
What's the problem with that? Our city's government has had quite a few condom-giveaway campaigns. It's not a straight solution to the PTS or unwanted natality issue, but it's a start. And we're a third world country.

No, Japan doesn't, AFAIK. Nor Singapore. That's why I'm shocked.

i think planparenthood also give condoms away for free as well.

as for singapore and japan, their biggest problem is population decline. They need more childbirths not less. i am surprise they haven't outlaw condoms and birth control pills.

Looks rather cute as an idea. I wonder what impression people will get when they find these teddy astronauts in space on a mission. A major discovery? That's somewhat funny!

Australia: Simpsons sex cartoons are ¨child porn¨

A man charged over cartoons showing sex acts involving children modelled on The Simpsons characters has failed to have his child pornography convictions overturned.

In the NSW Supreme Court on Monday, Justice Michael Adams ruled a fictional cartoon character was a "person" within the meaning of the relevant state and Commonwealth laws.

In February, Alan John McEwan was convicted in Parramatta Local Court of possessing child pornography and using his computer to access child pornography.

"The alleged pornography comprised a series of cartoons depicting figures modelled on members of the television animated series The Simpsons," the judge said.

The cartoons showed characters like Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson having sex.

The man was convicted and fined $3,000 and placed on a good behaviour bond.

"In my view, the magistrate was correct in determining that, in respect of both the Commonwealth and the NSW offences, the word 'person' included fictional or imaginary characters ...," the judge said.

"... the mere fact that the figure depicted departed from a realistic representation in some respects of a human being did not mean that such a figure was not a 'person'."

In dismissing the appeal, the judge ordered each party to pay its own legal costs as this was the first case dealing with this "difficult" issue.

Further proof that laws against so called ¨virtual child pornography¨ will lead to nothing but insanity.

They should've claimed that they were 18. I mean, the show has been running since the late 80's.

Belive me, those images are truly insane in all scences, that guy should pass the rest of his life on prision

Why do I tell this? Simple, in other formu I had my email posted on my profile and some jerk send me those images (don't know if they were the sames) but they were quite disgusting and distrurbing, not only from the Simpsons, there were also some of Family guy, Futurama, Magical Godparents and some dysney movies, I swear, I couldn't sleep that night, plus I learned to do not show my email that easy on the forums

The guys who made this kind of images are SICK

Now I wouldn't go so far as to say LIFE in prison, but yes, I believe that there should be a rather strong charge and some good jail time for this guy. Seriously, the Simpsons... come on, none of the girls even have boobs!!!

This is ludicrous. They assigned personhood to a fictional character? That was the prosecutor’s argument...and people accepted it? My god, what has the world come to? Added to that, these various underage figures (in the Simpsons, Futurama, etc) cannot actually even be classified as a fictional homo sapiens, due in large part to the fact that they are not, within their own worlds, of the species homo sapiens (when was the last human that you saw with 4 fingers and yellow skin?). So, there is no way that the argument even applies to the situation. Added to that, how far does this definition of 'personhood' as applied to a fictional character extend? Is it simply focused on the age, or can a fictional character now have other rights as well? Yes "... the mere fact that the figure depicted departed from a realistic representation in some respects of a human being" does mean that the figure is not a person, or is someone going to claim that a Powerpuff Girl is also human? I mean, the judge’s observation of this decision placed the role of a fictional character above even what America assigns an unborn fetus. How any judge or jury could accept the prosecutor’s arguments is absolutely baffling.

edit: Sorry if I came across as a little...forceful. I can't help but view this as a great miscarriage of justice.
