BBC NEWS | Technology | Polystyrene homes planned for Afghans

What a great idea. (I'm serious here, read the article...)

These houses are wind and weatherproof, can protect from extreme temperatures and earthquakes - major preblem in the region. Sounds pretty good to me.

This site is fab.

For those of you not in the UK, we are presently having some 22 million copies of this leaflet delivered to every household in the country, at a cost of £10 million, to prepare everyone for a possible terrorist attack. Personally I actually thought that this is a good idea, although unfortunately the actual booklet doesn't give a lot of information that anyone with 2 brain cells together couldn't have worked out already.

I also think that this unofficial version is a lot funnier. It managed to hit a nerve with the government suits as they've already threatened it!
