No, I am sorry... but that can be managed in a digitital form if cannot in the real way... It can be original without being a real record... It gives you the possibility of select the music you want and the quality you need...

João Marco, you're right that it could be done from scratch, but would there be copyright problems? And if it was an original song, would it still sound like a football song? I don't know the answers to these questions... :-)

Answering your last question, I think so... there is some sounds that you can add, some space you can create to give that feeling... But in another hand, wasn't that what I said... "Original", in this case, means from scratch... You sing (a UK, Germany or France music), you record, you edit... But all that was just a thought...

by: Paul J. von Hartmann

What about a rubik's cube that's been modified so that it's impossible to solve? It would keep a person obsessed with puzzles pre-occupied with trying to solve a puzzle that cannot be solved. Perhaps some sort of harmless drug could be applied to the surface to intensify obsessiveness.

Ha ha ha! Yes, there was a joke a bit like that in Doctor Who where he puts a guard to sleep by showing him some mathematical formulae. Great idea, it would work if someone was obsessive enough. Maybe they know in advance that a particular person can't resist a rubik's cube challenge. I think all of us have at some point spent a bit too long trying to solve a puzzle so this is actually surprisingly plausible.

Some of the characters in the story may try to temporarily put certain people out of action. It would be nice to get some suggestions on how non-violent action of this kind could be shown easily, cheaply and in a way that looks cool. For example, one of the James Bond films had a cigarette which the user blew into and it spat sleeping gas from the other end, disabling the person next to them.

The two major problems with recording football chants are: -If it's based on a real commercial song that song may still be in copyright -If it's recorded at a real match, who has copyright of the performance? If someone has released football chants under a PD or CC licence, I'm assuming they've solved these problems. If it's a totally original chant, would people be able to recognise them as football chants?

Does anyone know a source of football (or other sport) chant recordings that are either public domain or creative commons? Note that this is NOT a request for general crowd sound effects, but actual chants. The requirements are: -tracks are CC or PD -tracks are sung, screamed, shouted, whatever, by either a crowd or enthusiastic individual -tracks can either have music or be a capella -chants should be popular in particular European countries, especially the UK, Germany and France Just to give an idea of the genre, the hit single Vindaloo by Fat Les was based on football chanting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T1pXsJp_go

1) A sort of poison that causes no harm exept some heavy megraines and some rach on the face. 2) Cunning use of the sleeping illness carried by the tsetse fly. I'll add some more suggestions when I find some.

Thanks! About the fly, I'm imagining it being trained for the job by the intelligence services. :-) Come to think of it, I think there was an Asterix story where a secret agent (who looked a LOT like Sean Connery) had a trained fly.
