In light of the possible spread
of foot and mouth disease virtually anywhere--I was wondering how restricted UK citizens are. Is travel in the countryside difficult or impossible? Isn't it interesting how quickly movement is restricted and meat taken off the table?

Foot-and-mouth disease marches forward
in Europe. In order to try to slow down the spread of the virus, UK authorities are urging cancellations of any events that bring people and/or animals together. Which means no horse racing. Which means the Brits are going insane because they have nothing to bet on. (Unlike the US, they don't consider gambling to be an evil on the level of homicide.) What to do? Rodents to the rescue
is offering live webcasts of hamster races to satiate your betting jones. Look at 'em go
! In other hamster news, some dork blew £3000 on a 6-foot-tall fiberglass hamster
left over from the carnage of the Millennium Dome.
