I don't know how many of you out there are familiar with The Onion but it is an absolutely hilarious site. It's just like a normal newspaper, except they're not being serious. Great fun, great satire, perfectly written. I know some people have just come across this site and been a bit confused, mainly cos they weren't sure if they were for real or not.

Rest assured they're not, so check out:

haha..... well not onlywas the project a great project on Everything that could go wrong, this article here stats that after compiling 50,000 pages of the list one of the super computers failed and all data was lost.

Here is a snip of what the article says,

Quote

"After the long compiling of about 50,000 things that could go wrong, the main super computer that held about 500,000 of the list went down. The reason for it going down is because our electrician, Bob of New York City, forgot to add surge protectors to the network. This fried the system!" said Project Awry researcher Hideko Manabe of Kyoto University. "Talk about Everything That Could Go Wrong!" Hideko added.
