The Bacon Rocket
These blokes attempt to answer the age old question... can you make a rocket out of bacon?
With the growing identity theft problem in the United States, why is the government moving ahead with a technology that gives identity thieves another way to steal your personal data and allows terrorists to pick individual Americans out of crowds?
You Are Being Eaten By Invisible Vampires
So, anyways, did I mention that I learned toki pona? I learned toki pona. And as much as I loathe the vapid philosophy behind the tokipona.org Web site, I gotta say: I'm glad they have a link to whywork.org.
India and Pakistan - Strongly Preparing for the War
I received an e-mail from a friend of mine in India a few days ago. Raghu and I used to work together at a (now defunct) dot-com. He was the head DBA, and I managed all of the web infrastructure. Since Raghu didn't have a car and he lived nearby, I used to give him rides back and forth from work. We got to know each other pretty well.
Ninjas: The Ultimate DEADLY THING
Top five things that make me fear and exult: 5) Amyl nitrate. 4) Car crashes. 3)
Courtroom showdowns. 2) Sex in public. 1) the REAL ULTIMATE POWER of a full-on NINJA
How to Take Out a Suspension Bridge
How would one take out a suspension bridge?
You could ram an airplane into it, but it's harder than ever to commandeer an airplane
these days. Also, unlike tall buildings that fill the skyline, where you have a pretty
good chance of hitting your target, bridges are low to the ground and don't have much of
a vertical cross-section. Trying to hit one with a 747 wouldn't be impossible, but it
would be difficult.
Ever wanted to work long hours for no pay at one of the most dangerous jobs in the world?
A job where your only chance of getting ahead is to give some head? A job that's pure
murder? Now's your chance!
Bubble Boy No More!
In 1976, the world knew nothing about severe combined
immunodeficiency, boys in fish tanks, or even John
Travolta. But one movie changed all that.
When Toys Go Bad
Sick of government buttinski's blaming the internet for
everything? Check out these cool ads plugging
super-violent toys from the 50s and early 60s!
Every treatise I've ever read about how terrible "war toys"
are mentions Lego building bricks as a constructive
alternative. HA HA HA! Who are these people kidding?!
Kids just make their own horrendous DEATH MACHINES out of
Legos! The only problem: not enough olive drab bricks.
But now an evil German toy company is making near-perfect
knock-off Lego bricks. And they have tanks, missile
launchers, army guys, and attack helicopter sets!
Everything you always wanted!
This Really Isn't Funny
A woman died today when her parachute failed to open during
a demonstration of parachute saftey in Yosemite National
Park. There is irony involved in this. They say that 40% of
Americans do not understand the concept of irony. I hope
this clears things up for some of you.
Bombs! Guns! Dope! Coke! Spiders! Lizards! Alligators!
Scorpions! A Man That Lives With His Mom!
A Garage Full of Lawn Mowers!
Oh the horror! Oh the humanity!
Cruisin' for a Bruisin'
Turns out the guy behind the wheel of the London train crash that took out six people two years ago
was known for "displaying "very casual" behavior. For example,
driving the 125mph train with both his feet on the dashboard, backing his "kitbag"
(I think that's "backpack to you and me English speakers), and
blazing through two yellow and one red light before plowing into
a "goods train" 470 yards beyond the red light.
Unconfirmed Case of Ebola Quarantined in Germany
"Unconfirmed," they say! Like there's any point to confirming it seeing how there is NO CURE or TREATMENT! An unidentified
40-year-old German TV camera man returned from a trip to
the Ivory Cost with a nasty little case of hemorrhagic
fever. This could get pretty damn ugly if any fellow
passengers from the man's Swissair flight start oozing, too.
We may not actually have to wait a whole four months for
the end of the world as we know it....
Waking the Dead
I love it when the media makes some big deal over
"new scientific proof!" of something really obvious like "Poor
People Receive Inferior Health Care, Study Says" or "Taking 5,000
Vitamins at Once is Bad, Says Noted Expert." Well, here's
another one: alarm clocks are hazardous to your
Holiday Rice Cakes Kill Three
Everyday the media bombards us with stories about the
supposed dangers of drugs, tobacco and alcohol, all the while
ignoring the real deadly killers-- falling vending machines,
laser pointers, and sticky rice cakes!

After exposure to radiation it is important to consider that you may have mutated to gigantic dimensions: watch your head.
Lung sucking bomb
New US "thermobaric" bomb sucks air from deep caves and lungs. Al Qaeda members said to be deflated.
