I sense our will to conquer being eaten away. And without that we are nothing.

Passport Insecurity
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? -- Baron Earl

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. -- Mr. Bad

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. -- Baron Earl

Jerk City's Slow Descent to Madness
Lately, it seems that Jerk City has taken on a darker aspect. Oh, there's still plenty of boners, pricks, dongs, and dicks, but more often, there seems to be a decidedly homicidal undercurrent swelling in the daily Net comic. -- Dkr. Armand Geddyn

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. -- Baron Earl

And You Thought All You Had to Worry About Was H-bombs
Discover Magazine has developed a list of 20 potential ways the world could end. Some of them are pretty cool. Others are Sci-Fi clichés. They obvious had to stretch to make it to 20. -- JRoyale

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! -- El Destino

Lego DEATHSTORMS
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! -- El Snatcher

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. -- Negative Nancy

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. -- Negative Nancy

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.... -- Negative Nancy

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 health. -- Negative Nancy
