Is Google female?

Via Slashdot (like most of my recent posts):
Let's just hope Google (and her telco partners) don't f*** it up.
Extending that thought - can brands themselves (and not the image they project) have gender?

Just not cricket!

Via Slashdot:
The recent problems at the Large Hadron Collider will now keep it idle until spring 2009. The official press release is here. [...] The total amount of time to [fix things] will spill over into CERN's scheduled winter maintenance/shutdown period, which is partly done to save money on electricity during the period of peak demand.
Nooooooooooooooooo!! I want the End Of The World to happen due to a science experiment, well before some crackpot 'world leader' decides he can't keep his grubby hands off the Big Red Button!

And also, as another commenter said:
I spent all my money over the last 6 months on alcohol and parties, secure in the knowledge that the world would come to an end this October when the LHC came up to full power.

This is unacceptable. I demand they destroy the world now.
Amen to that!
