Update on fake "space tourist" reality show: The British contestants in the fake reality show who thought they were going into outer space (but were really staying on Earth in a warehouse in Suffolk), have been told the truth. Some handled it better than others:
"When I thought we were coming back to Earth I was planning my speech. I was going to say it had been my childhood dream. Now I'm a little bit heartbroken..."

"My mum and dad are gonna love this."

"Aw man. We're not astronauts. We're just asses."
As consolation prizes, they were each awarded 25,000 GB pounds ($44,300). (Via Boing Boing.)
