"Being non-hunting hippies, we made our charms from the penis bones of freshly road-killed male coons. (We picked up road-kills anyway because we ate the meat and tanned the furs and sold the mittens and purses we made therefrom.) I should also note that rather than dedicate these love bones to the furtherance of overpopulated HUMANITY, we placed them by our pond, where visiting RACCOONS would benefit from the resultant sexual potency and fertility among their own species."

Bruce Blair's Nuclear Column. Interesting writing from a guy who literally had his finger on the button.
(Thanks, Dan!)

The Listerine girl, explosions, monkeys, and other Stuff that is Awesome.

For years, I've been telling people that the world needs something like this. I wish it didn't look like a Starbucks or Ben and Jerry's though. My cereal bar would have funky old kitchen tables, and loads of cereal toys on display. And I'd serve Kel Bowls.

My sister and I spent large chunks of our childhood playing with cornstarch and water. Had we thought to hit the mixture with our dad's old test oscillator, we could have done this. (big windows media file)

The brilliant Rob Cockerham has another ebay auction going.

While watching Condi Rice's 9/11 testimony, I was startled by the sight of one of the news photographers shooting with a speed graphic. Turns out it must have been this guy. You can see his work here.

Weird glass stuff from the bottom of the sea.

Reading this. Which made me google this. Damn. Didn't know those things existed. I'll bet the book drove prices up, just like it created instant demand for Cayce Pollard's jacket.And the true fan will need one of these, too. I wonder if Gibson spent the money for his advance on ebay?

Good news: you can serve God, and build that scale live steam locomotive.

Infinite cat project. It's cats, all the way down.

UPDATE: Right you are, Kat: Kevin was there first.

Everyone's posting the yucky tapeworm story.

Why not make some "curb feelers" for your underground mining equipment?

"This will give a warning nudge to anyone in the danger area, giving him or her about a two-foot running start to stop the machine or to yell at the operator to stop."
