Some thoughts before work:

1) How long have we in the UK been pronouncing Niger as "Nih-jair" rather than "Nigh-djer"? Or was it always that way, as I can't remember anyone apart from maybe Bob Geldof ever saying the name of the place before - and Sir Bob is not a man who I will go to when I want to find out how to pronounce the names of countries.
2) Why did noone tell me that Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! existed? It's even got Mark Hamill doing the voice of the bad guy...

Also, for anyone interesting in tagging and what you can do with tags, flickr have released clustered searches, allowing you to get groups of photos with like tags within groups of tags. If that makes sense.

e.g:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/london/clusters/ - clusters of tags around London tagged photos
http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/london/clusters/night-street-city/ - the night-street-city-london cluster

Tower 42
