Comments Ninjas have invaded Pennsylvania, and are holding up petrol ('gas' to their American victims) stations at swordpoint. Two female ninjas, that staple of the videogame industry, stole "cash, cigarettes and lottery tickets" from a terrified clerk. While the latter two items don't really fit the ninja mystique, that didn't matter to you. They are girls and they ninj:

She-ninjas?! I'm in love! I mean it this time!

El Reg should be afraid as ninjas are plotting their revenge for having lost the chance to fight Chuck Norris...

they just need the lottery tickets and cigarrets to fund their movement

So we'll just have to pass Sword & Dagger Control laws, that'll stop it.

I regret the omission of a certain M. Thatcher from the recent poll on Shaolin Kung-Fu Monks v. Ninjas v. Charles Norris. She'd have given them all a damn good handbagging, after all she crushed the mining industry, Ronnie Reagan and the unions under her dainty size 6 court shoes.

The US were afraid of the UK when Maggie was in charge!

Stealing lottery tickets? Shurely that's one of the most stupid things to steal... I'm assuming they stole instant-win scratch cards or the like, in which case all the police need to do is take a note of the serial numbers allocated to the shop, and wait for somebody to try to cash in a winner.

Ninjas they may be, brainiacs certainly not.

[Ninja thievery] seems rather practical. People will be so busy boggling at the strange attire and weapons that they're unlikely to get a decent look at the *real* people inside the hollywood suits.

And nunchuku, or flails, should be pretty effective in NYC, a city wherein the law-abiding citizens have been largely disarmed by a lengthy series of cowardly politicians.

Japanese boffins have developed a frog with see-through skin to allow its organs to be observed without the need for dissection. Frogs everywhere are undoubtedly jubilant. The scientists are seeking to patent their hoppers and sell them on the market, so you could pick one up as an educational frog for your sprog. The experience might be a little traumatising for the nipper, however, since the third generation apparently invariably die shortly after birth. But it'll be worth it for the look on little Billy's face.

FROGGIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! GIMME!!! *glee*

*ahem* What I meant to say was, I want one for serious scientific research. Of some kind.

Can they really patent something that is already in nature? Check out the Glass Frog! (Totally transparent so you can see the bones and organs!) Its cool!

Now that they're transparent, why not genetically engineer one with an internal OLED display? The perfect recyclable pocket TV, just package it with a sachet of mayonaise... Galvani would be so pleased :)

batrachians with built-in windows? Can you get them with Linex? Will I get a refund if I don't want windows?
