Staines and Egham News Aug 08

Back from holidays now, and working on a couple of things, but nothing as important as this appearance by my son Danny in the local paper. That's right! The local paper! Fame, enduring fame! Click this link and you'll see for youself. Now, in real life he doesn't have ghostly mirror-written letters all across his forehead, but apart from that it's a good likeness. Though the picture makes him look a little like he's dribbling spectral ink from the left side of his mouth (either that, or that he has a thunderbird-puppet detachable chin). Still, lovely lad! Look lower down and you'll see a smaller picture of Rachel with him and the scientist. And below that: double beds from 99. Can't say fairer.

    It doesn't explain exactly how they did the tests, I didn't see. Did they show the baby the object, have them turn around, and then put a screen in, or how was it done?

    My understanding is that they exposed the babies to strong radiation, possibly via the bite of an atomic spider, and turned them all into superbeings. But I may have misunderstood the protocols involved.
