All the real BBC stories start with www.bbc this doesn't.

Nice bit of forgery though.

Yeah, the little blurb in the corner mentioning that 'The BBC is not responsable for the content of external sites' is apropos. :)

Oh, good, that's a relief :) It seemed pretty unreal, one of "that can't be right, but there's a story about it" things. Great article, though :)

Is it bad that I was disappointed about this being a fake?


Mmmm. Malaria Zombies.

Nothing beats "The Dead Walk" CNN hoax from a while back.

The real BBC webpage is found here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/4483241.stm

Notice the article is really about the Syrians pulling out of Lebannon

Wow, I questioned how that could possibly happen, but then I figured "it must be true!" since Spotty posted it, and as we all know, he is The Bastion of Truth.

Notice the date of publication at the top.

And, uhm, the server that this is on is in IL, and the IP address is leased from QWEST Communications, a Denver-based Telco.

Well--I looked for a date, and came up with April 25, not April 1, and I'm a little in-the-dark about IP addys. Anyway, it's a cute web page...

A United Nations team will be dispatched to Cambodia to confirm the safety of biological research in Cambodia.

Reading this immediately made me think "premise for a b-movie". :]
