loose ends

You may remember that I posted something a long while ago about a series of murders in Suffolk. Well, an arrest was made and for the past few weeks a gentleman named Steve Wright has been on trial. And today he was found guilty. He'll be sentenced tomorrow, but it looks as though thirty years is the most optimistic outcome he can expect.

edit: Yep, he was given what we call a `whole life term,' which basically means he'll be in prison the rest of his life. As opposed to another murderer who was sentenced today, who was also given life but will serve at least 34 years before his status can be reviewed.

...another totally gratuitous meme!

Your home is a

Magic Time-Lord's Manor

Your kitchen consists of dilithium-powered food replicators, manned by obedient robot slaves, who are sure to never, ever rebel. I mean, it's preposterous to even consider it. There's a pantry stocked with beef jerky. Oh, and deer jerky. Your master bedroom is decorated to look like the treetop village of the Galadhrim. Your study has every science fiction title ever written. One of your garages contains a life-sized X-Wing fighter, and KITT. (KITT was a gift from a well-meaning uncle.)

Your home also includes a robot repair bay, where your mechanized servants are routinely fitted with new restraining bolts. (It's just a precaution.) Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. Outside is your radio telescope, listening constantly for alien transmissions. Especially invaders. They'll come eventually, even if nobody believes you. (Nobody does.)

And, you have a pet -- a unicorn named "Shadowhooves".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:
