around the traps

  • Ozzy Osborne is the new Times Online medical columnist... The wisdom of Oz - Times Online: I can understand — sort of — if people think it’s more rock’n’roll to die young. But what really winds me up is when you hear: “Oh, my great-aunt Nelly smoked 80 fags a day and drank 16 pints of Guinness before bed every night, and she lived until she was 103.” I mean, yeah, that happens. My own gran lived until she was 99. But the odds aren’t on your side. Especially when you get to the grand old age of 61, like me. Another thing that puts a bee up my arse is people who never get checkups, and never go to the doctor, even when they’re half-dead.

  • iPad un(chocolate)boxing | Ahead, Robot!: I rang my friends James and Paul, who happens to run the finest chocolate shop in London, and said “Could you freeze an iPad in chocolate carbonite, and have it survive?”. They weren’t sure, but were willing to give it a go. That's, umm, certainly an original way to wrap a technical toy. I note the article doesn't say the iPad worked ;) Although the melting point of chocolate is just at the top end of the iPad's operating temperature so theoretically it should be fine...
