What on earth is a Windows haircut? Did the barber sell Mr Gates something rather newer and flashier than he wanted, and that he can't get a standard comb-through? Did it come bundled with the latest leg waxes and hair extensions that he'll never use? Has "I love XP" been shaved into the back where he can't see it? Or does it just look hacked?
In addition to the "10 things we didn't know..." feature, could I suggest a, "10 things we'd like to know but weren't included in the story" feature? I'd start off by asking how many of the 4,000 pieces of George IV's Grand Service have been broken during banquets? Surely there is a Monitor Acolyte who can be tasked with such important pieces of investigative journalism.

Winston Churchill on Vic Oliver: "He did not impress me with being a bad man; but common as dirt: An Austrian citizen, a resident in US & here on license & an American passport." Hmmm, if only he'd met Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Not only does Mike from Southport (Tuesday's letters) refer to trousers as "pants", but Paul from Devon says he's wearing knickers. You're wearing knickers?
