Current Kids Play Classic Games

Dammit, they're ruining my nostalgia! Donkey Kong *didn't* suck...did it?

BOFH Episode 10

Okay...this isn't new, and it's not news or anything, but I rediscovered it today, and it made me laugh out loud when I got to the end.

If you have no idea what a BOFH is, allow me to LART you into cluefullness.

FCC says "fucking" is fine

Shocked? Me too...not upset, mind you, but definitely shocked. Apparently the FCC really, really likes Bono (and I better get on the phone to George Carlin to let him know he's going to have to amend his act further***)

*** I note that on NBC's "Will and Grace" a character recently (almost) said "tits". She actually said "ka-tits" (emphasis on syllable 2), but it was plain enough. Oh, and I've heard "shit" once or twice this past year, as well.

Wanna give the Telemarketers a piece of your mind? Here is their phone number.

Dave Barry does good things for my mood sometimes, and this article is one of them. Maybe I'll call and say "Please hold for an important message!"

There are no WMD in Iraq...

...however, 2 days earlier, the same paper reported this interesting tidbit. True or not, I'd like to hear some more details about it.

Now, there's an odd duck

I used to think it was just humans that have odd sexual habits...I have no words to describe this. If you have problems with ducks, necrophilia (in ducks), or homosexuality (once again, of the feathered variety), skip this one.

Do Not Call (DNC from the DNC)

Well, it does mention the Do Not Call list briefly...apparently the list has something to do with our current president, a white house ceremony, and flying pigs (I just rolled my eyes, in case you didn't pick up on that).

A billboard sporting a naked, genetically engineered woman whose four breasts are being milked is designed to 'disturb', its creator says.

Yes, as a matter of fact, there *is* a picture with the article...I noticed it after the, um, obvious social relevance of genetically modified food caught my attention...yeah, that's what it was.

Hey look, a representative with a bad memory

Let me start out by saying that if you've never heard of THOMAS (the congressional record online), you should check it out. I found my first self-researched inconsistency with something a public figure has said (albeit, a small one). I remembered that the house and senate had both passed bills to support a war in Iraq overwhelmimgly, so I looked until I found this. Waters' was one of 11 "nay" votes, against 392 "yeas".

Seems a pretty stark contrast to her statement that "we have been asked for $87 billion to continue this war that was a preemptive strike that most of us, or many of us, did not agree with.". Don't take my word for it, though...read it for yourself.

I bet there's some really interesting stuff in there...

APOD: 2003 October 1 - A Daytime Fireball Over South Wales

Now, here's something you don't see every day (and if you did, you'd do well to think about moving). Sky. Meteor. Fireball. Need I say more?

Antibiotics raise kids' allergy risk

This news isn't entirely new, but it's still noteworthy. Makes me worry about my oldest daughter (who has been on antibiotics for years to guard against reflux-related bladder/kidney infection).
