tardis_stowaway: TARDIS under a starry sky and dark tree (P & P hands and dance)
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife giant fiberglass statue of himself.

The Atlantic used the headline "Giant Colin Firth Terrorizes London."  I highly suggest that everyone takes a few minutes out of their day to go appreciate the photo of Giant Darcy.  I laughed for about two solid minutes, and every time I go back to the article I start laughing again.

Keep it classy, London.

News update:  still not Doctor Who time.  Existing in linear time is such a pain. 

Meanwhile, does it make me a horrible traitor that I would be content if Ghana beats the US in the World Cup?  I was initially rooting for South Africa, because I really loved the semester I spent living there and because they seem to have so much enthusiasm for hosting the cup, vuvuzelas and all.  (Speaking of vuvuzelas, I find all the hatred directed at them to be slightly off-putting.  Yeah, they're annoying.  Sports fans do loud and annoying things in all countries.  Vuvuzelas at least are less rude than screaming insults or making obscene gestures or starting riots.  Some of the commentary against them has a tone of cultural imperialism, assuming that ways people in Europe and the Americas celebrate are superior to the way all of those crass Africans are just making a bunch of noise.  No, vuvuzelas aren't very melodic, but I bet it's hella fun to blow one in the middle of a huge crowd of other people doing the same.  Plus, it's just fun to say "vuvuzela.")  Anyway, South Africa was thoroughly disqualified, but I think it would be great if at least one African team did really well in the continent's first World Cup.  Ghana's the only one left.  Also, while I have noticed what seems like an increased interest in this World Cup here in the US this year, I suspect that citizens of Ghana want it more.  So of course I'd be happy to see my home do well, but I won't be bothered if Ghana knocks us out.

In other news from South Africa, thieves ransacked a police station under renovation, taking pretty much everything including the kitchen sink.  I want to know how badly the thieves cleared out the bathroom; do the cops have anything to go on?

Here's the ever-popular game of cliff/shag/marry, most lately ganked from [livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey :

1) Comment to this and I will give you 3 people.
2) Post this meme with your answers.
3) Provide pictures (at least for the hawt ones) and the names of the 3 people I gave you.
4) Label which you would marry, shag, and throw off a cliff.

[livejournal.com profile] isiscaughey  made me choose between Spike, Nine, and Mr. Darcy.  This is a nigh-impossible choice, as all three are far too hot to die, but here's what I'm going with.
