Catherine Tate Sex Robot. Modelled on or coincidental look alike?


Catherine Tate Sex Robot Catherine Tate                                  Sex Robot
Noticed a news item today about an inventor called Douglas Hines who has created a $7000 sex robot which he proudly unveiled at Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada last month.

Polybore was immediately struck by how much the sex robot looks like British actor and comedian Catherine Tate. So much so they started to wonder if Douglas Hines is a fan of British TV, Dr Who in particular.
The sex robot’s bottom lip is very reminiscent of Catherine Tate’s most famous character Lauren Cooper. Wonder if she is "bovvered".
Can you find an image of Catherine Tate that looks even more like the sex robot?

Google Chrome Tool Bar has disappeared, gone missing. Wrench, refresh, back button icons. Fix.

A curious thing happened a couple of days ago. Opened Chrome and was surprised to see that a number of the buttons were missing from the toolbar. Just a big white blank were they used to be.

On further investigation, clicking around roughly where they used to be it turned out that the buttons were still there and functioning but invisible.

If you have the same problem then the way polybore fixed it should work for you.

You need to click  on where the wrench icon used to be ie at the same level as the address bar at the far right. Might take a couple of goes but you will hit it eventually.

Then from the drop down menu click options and finally under themes click set default theme and chrome should be back to normal. You can then reinstall your preferred theme if you were using one other than the default.

Not entirely sure what caused this. Polybore was running the theme “Late Night” which had not exhibited any problems before.

One possibility is that the theme was broken when Google Chrome updated to the latest version 4.0.249.78 (around 25th of January). This happened around the time that the theme broke although polybore cannot be certain as Chrome seems to have silently updated itself.

Lending weight to polybore’s idea that the update broke the theme is the fact that one new feature added during the update was the addition of extensions, which can be bolted onto Chrome, and crucially have an icon next to the address bar.

Previously on Google Chrome:

New Life Children's Refuge Haiti

New Life Children's Refuge are based in Idaho and are associated with the Central Valley Baptist Church. Currently the Cenral Valley Babtist Church is displaying this message on it's web site.
"A ten member church team traveled to Haiti to help rescue children from one or more orphanages that had been devastated in the earthquake on January 12. The children were being taken to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic where they could be cared for and have their medical and emotional needs attended to. Our team was falsely arrested today and we are doing everything we can from this end to clear up the misunderstanding that has occurred in Port au Prince."

Whatever New Life Children's Refuge may think, and regardless of the circumstances, moving children from one state to another without consulting the local authorities is at best naive in the extreme. Not sure how New Life Children's Refuge can claim that their team was falsely arrested when it is clear that they had not gained permission for their activities.

Perhaps it could be said that these people were acting out of the best of intentions however Central Valley Baptist Church have some curious views regarding their fellow Idaho citizens so you might wonder exactly what their view may be of these orphans existing religious beliefs.

According to Clint Henry, the senior pastor at Central Valley Baptist Church, one of the main challenges of his ministry in Idaho is that he is in an 


"area that is heavily influenced by a non-Christian religion"
Quite what this non Christian religion is he does not specify but is seems an odd thing to say when clearly the majority of those in Idaho are Christians of one denomination or another.
Protestant – 29.3%


LDS (Mormon) – 22.8%

Catholic – 14.3%

Non-Denominational Christian – 13.6%
