What!?! Paper Monitor has another half? I thought it was just the new layout...
Paper Monitor reads Popbitch, how cool is that?

"No free wallchart", Paper Monitor? How about a free JPG download of a wallchart, then?
On reflection perhaps it would be better if we didn't see all the losing entries for the caption competition.

Right, let's put this thing to bed. Deep breath everyone...
1 tonne of crisps eaten in the UK every 3 minutes
= 20 tonnes (19,999,999.8g) per hour
= 280 tonnes crisps in 1 Olympic sized swimming pool
35g per packet of crisps
= 8,000,000 packets in swimming pool
1096 phone boxes in swimming pool
= 7299 packets per phone box
45p per packet of crisps (that about right?!)
= £3284.55 worth of crisps in each phone box
= £3,599,866.80 worth of crisps in the swimming pool
1 phone box worth £8,500
= £9,316,000 worth of phone box in the swimming pool
Total worth of swimming pool with phone boxes and crisps
= £12,915,866.80 per 14 hours
= £22,141,485.84 per day
= £8,081,642,331.60 (£8.08 billion) per year
= £1,414,287,408.10 (£1.41 billion) VAT per year to go towards the NHS to treat the unhealthy obese kids.
Can we all go home now please?

Re. your request for formula for how widely a time-wasting e-mail must be sent before it's news.
Let E = number of newspaper editors
I = total number of e-mail inboxes
T = number of times e-mail forwarded
CC = average number of people each e-mail is copied to
S = number of potentially interesting stories that day.
Then probability = (T*CC)(1-S)/(I*E)
For the Daily Express, however, you have to add in another term: D = number of days since story about Princess Diana appeared to give:

In your Ealing fire story.
You report: "Hundreds of people were told to stay indoors or leave their homes " Glad that's clear then.
