Agent Janet Reid on the value of mistakes — Interesting stuff. I'm all about daring to be bad. Our own perceptions of quality are sometimes a writer's worst enemy.

Star Trek for the dead — (Thanks to lt260.)

Evil Monkey's guide to kosher imaginary animals — Hahahahahahahahah.

Did I.B.M. Really See a World Market "For About Five Computers"? — A debunking of one of the funnier quotes floating around in .sig files.

Car defaced, with bad punctuation — The last line of this story is worth the read.

"I'm getting a ticket? For what?" — Dept. of Stupid-Americans.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s an 800mph jet car — Man...wow...I really do admire wretched excess, I guess.

Cranky business memos within al-Qaeda — (Thanks to biomekanic.)

Bush's disapproval ratings — Remember when the liberal media was all about how unpopular a president Clinton was, because his approval ratings were below 50%? Heard much about Bush's approval ratings from those dastardly liberals in the media?

10430 km/h Rocket sled Holloman Air Force Base (USA) 30 April 2003 Unmanned. It was the final stage of a four-stage sled train, which included the sled, a Super Roadrunner rocket motor, and a 192-pound payload on top. The sled train delivered payload into a target at a velocity of 9465 feet per second, or 6453 mph (2885 m/s), or Mach 8.5.

Unmanned of course....but zooom, zooom (6,453 mph WTF?!)

Love the Al Qaeda story. Not only are they evil but they don't even pay people. It's really hard fighting the western imperialist zionist thugs if you don't have a paycheck and your landlord is banging on the door.

The part with the air conditioner is what got me. I wonder if they argue over who's turn it is to clean out the fridge?
