Phreaking just isn't what it used to be, it's a real shame because shit like this is genius. Must have scared the crap out of a few people too!

That cunt interrupted Tom Baker! Although I must admit that would have freaked me out especially if I was watching Doctor Who at the time. I also must admit he at least knew what to do with his 10 seconds of infamy.

i say let people highjack the tv once in a while, you couldnt turn it off would be better than the shit they wanted to show, ratings would go through the roof.

on a unrelated note anyone hear about richard hammond last night? he crashed a 300 mph car and was in a serious condition, fucking sucks if hes paralysed, he was one of the greater members of the top gear team.

haha, that's great, yeah I never heard about this. I kind of lived near that area, but was going to college and didn't watch any TV for most of that year. Well, I guess there's all kinds of crackpots out there, makes life interesting...

this is hilarious... And I remember Max... kind of.

Also, it sucks about Richard Hammond.. Top Gear wouldn't be the same without him.
