_Good to know: Cancer Has Been Cured


"Smooch" is still one of my favorite words. Fun to say, more fun to do, and it's a physical onomatopoeia. Can't beat that.

_Comedian Steven Wright gets mad props from the New York Times
"If you could know how and when you were going to die, would you want to know?"


"Forget it, then."

_"Real life" hardcore geek humor
<Beeth> Girls are like internet domain names, the ones I like are already taken.
<honx> well, you can stil get one from a strange country :-P

<Opcode> i was gonna call 911...but i was downloading a file

* ab is away - gone, if anyone talks in the next 25 minutes as me it's bm being an asshole

<Morpheus> argh.. that wasn't my speaker cable

_Depressed lesbians need a good deep dicking, bareback
Sure, why not use the most inflammatory spin possible?

The basic idea of the article: new research indicates semen contains hormones that, when absorbed through the vagina, have a serious mood-enhancing effect. (Also mentioned: lesbians living together do not synchronize. Interesting.)

_Attention: Lex did NOT invent the telephone.
I once got a (handwritten) letter from my mother in which she actually used the apostrophe to form 'phone. Now I'm dying to find out if she would write "cell' 'phone."

_Neighborly Love
Baited cat traps, regular trips to the pound to get animals euthanized, erecting signs outside a 14-year-old girl's window taunting her about her missing pet, having another girl arrested at school... Wow.

_Slashdot founder CmdrTaco looks like a linebacker:

Who'da thunk it?

_Paranoid yet? How you can be tracked throughout your daily routine.
I'm a database guy, and I track people. No, I'm never going to call and sell you something, but it gives certain insights into what is already possible.

Cash is your friend, people.

Oh, and I'm on a first-name basis with the people building the city-wide video surveillance system discussed in this article. Smile, you're on JuniorCam!

_So nice to see you, Ms. Kournikova

Did someone mention voyeurism? And that one isn't even dedicated to Thomas!

_Attorney bills 44 hours in one day
On Monday, April 9, she worked 34 hours. On Tuesday, she worked 44 hours. On Wednesday it was 29; 33 on Thursday, 25 on Friday, 42 on Saturday. On Sunday, she took it easy, with only 3.4 hours. Monday it was up to 18 and Tuesday it was 44. These are her hours alone, Murphy said. The sole practitioner's assistant bills separately.
Not as amusing as voyeurism, but it still might grab her attention.

_Star Control 2 to be re-released
Star Control 2, the best damn electronic game ever made, is being updated and given away free by it's original creators. It will be supported on Windows, Linux and both flavors of Mac OS, and may include internet play.

This game came out in 1992 and has owned my ass ever since. Action, humor, killer story, organically developing social / military events, funky music and hours upon hours of engrossing gameplay (hell, you might even get lucky with a blue-skinned hottie. I wonder if that explains something I told Nisa?).

I think I need to lie down.
