- That's it! I give up. This is the worst news I have heard in months. What have I done to deserve this?
- Star Wars Episode IV: The Animated GIF
- Amazing list of utitlities and web sites that seemingly covers all that you might want to do through the internet.
- Very cool flash page, but if someone would be so kind as to tell me what the point is I would greatly apprecaite it.
- Now this is cool. Top 1000 books based on holdings in libraries worldwide. #1 is no surprise, but #3? #15? Interesting...
- And speaking of books, I recently linked to Time magazines top 100 books of the 20th century. This creative post quotes actual Amazon reviews that gave some of these books 1 star or less. Funny, funny stuff. Read the review for Grapes of Wrath, one of my favorite books of all time. I just about fell over.
- Cool, cool, cool. "13 things that don't make sense." Mini-essays on dark matter, cold fusion, dark energy, the horizon problem, etc. Concise and very interesting.
- This is kind of neat: "Greatest Internet Moments, by Me." One person's picks for the best of the internet.
- FactBites.com. A new search engine that "offers you real, meaningful sentences that are right on topic." Kind of slick actually.
- The Phantom Time Hypothesis: Is it actually the year 1708? Did the Middle Ages never happen?
- It seems the Vatican has come out with a rejection of Intelligent Design: "the real message in Genesis was that 'the universe didn't make itself and had a creator'". That's it. I happen to agree.
- This is frightening and disgusting. Do Senators and Congressmen abuse their positions by practicing insider trading? I think the facts speak for themselves.
See you later...

We have sat by and watched you mock and ridicule the good people who serve the state of MN. However, your recent attacks on Ellen Anderson have brought us to the point where we had to act. It is time that people like you are taught that there are consequences to their actions.
Therefore, we have pulled Vanilla Coke from not just the Twin Cities area, but from all of America as a punishment to you. You may think that this is overkill on our part, but having you go to bed at night knowing you took this wonderful product away from the freedom-loving people of America is worth the loss in revenue.
We will consider reversing our decision once you make a public apology to all those legislators you have mocked and state that you will not mock them in the future.
Thank you for your time.

I had no idea Coca-Cola had such an interest in Minnesota politics! I feel like T.O. in that I felt the need to speak my mind, but now I realize that I may not be able to handle the consequences of my actions.
I will thoughtfully consider your offer of returning the deliciousness of Vanilla Coke to store shelves if I apologize.
Until then, I will satisfy my thirst with various Pepsi products since I would probably prefer them anyways, you two-faced, anonymous, sweat-shop employing, water polluting weasel.

Isn't ironic that the Catholic Church rejects intelligent design as science but the POTUS embraces it?
