"Mr Tetley had to rescue the creature from the surf, and then had to drag it 20 metres up the beach to ensure it was not washed away by waves or the tide."
That must have been fun. Especially if this thing was 10 meters long - that's 32 feet! Must have weighed something.
I hate to rain on Mr. Tetley's parade, but when something has been dead for a couple of weeks, it's a little late to "rescue" it. ;)
An item on "cyber-warfare&stuxnet" on the comments/talk of one of the beltway advisors (Libicki).
It calls into question the idea of "symetric response" (quite sensibly) to "cyber attack" and one or two other points.
I knew this had a tie-in to security somewhere. North Korea has already tried farming giant ostriches, giant pumpkins, giant rabbits and next... giant squid!
