Hey there!

Apologies for not posting much here lately. My time has been taken up with other things, mainly personal stuff, research, etc. Anyway, as you all know, I'm a big fan of all that's weird and wonderful. Well, maybe not all, but that's another story! On the subject of stories, I've come across this rather amusing one, from the Irish Republic.

The Irish parliament will be debating a bill tomorrow - the Nuclear Test Ban Bill. It seems a number of Irish members of parliament are a little irked by one of the clauses in the bill, and want it removed. Which clause would that be? Well, it's a clause that says if someone detonates a nuclear bomb, and that explosion is only of a minor nature, the maximum penalty that could be imposed on them by law is 12 months in jail, or a €5,000 fine. Now, then - can someone please define a minor nuclear explosion? Thought not :).

Actually I had not heard of this.
