Bits and pieces...

At lunch I dropped by QFC. They were selling "personal watermelons." Much better than those nasty old impersonal ones, I'm sure.

Other things to ponder:

Predictions for the year 2000, from 1900 (Thanks to elfs)

A piston-powered watch with a transmission. Sort of.

Phone sex from the inside. Not worksafe. (Thanks to the_flea_king)

Really ugly Pop-eye. (Thanks again to the_flea_king)

Finally, I was listening to the Gonzales hearings while out at lunch. I think he was only lying when his lips were moving. I am increasingly convinced history will judge this era very harshly.
