Hello Kitty's A to Z of the Subgenius Faith
Possibly the best soft footware-related flash on the web. I feel I will never suffer sock-related anxiety again.

I'm hungry! Arf! Staff at Battersea Dogs Home were mystified when they arrived at work one morning to find that the kitchen had been raided for an animal version of a midnight feast.
Banana art ... Many people think modern art is bananas. Well now it is!

The Grateful, and Sexy Dead The photos in the news of the recently departed (RIP) Janet Leigh in the shower sequence of Psycho with her lips so slightly parted, made me think of incredibly sexy she was in her prime. This brings me to my question. Of all the dead movie stars and celebrities, who stirs your loins? I will also admit to having a "thang" for Ingrid Bergman and Clara Bow among several others. Come on, tell the truth.
Photoshopping the Debate Those zany members of Fark had some fun with photoshop images of the debate between George W. Bush (who we can all agree easily won the debate) and John (French looking guy) Kerry.
TrekEarth - a community travel photo site. Explore the world in from as many perspectives as there are community members. The photo quality is embarassingly high (for me as an amateur photographer). I enjoyed Kiev, Budapest, and Romania.
Martha Colburn (qt), see also her bio/filmography, some photos, 6 page .pdf zine interview from cineMad, an interview, Baltimore city paper article, bio/video for sale, and yet another bio.
4 Squares Puzzle Your goal is to reposition two -- and only two -- sticks, so that you end up with four squares of equal size and no sticks left over.

Disney announces partnership with Chinese Communist Youth League In an interesting "Capitalism meets Communism" moment, Disney Corp. will join forces with the Communist Youth League (aka the Junior Woodchucks' Chinese chapter) to bring the Gospel of Walt to the children of China. I wonder what Uncle Scrooge would make of that... On the other hand, I guess that Disney will need all the help it can get, considering the competing entertainment available to those children.

SpaceShipOne wins the X-Prize. For the first time, a commercial space ship has made it repeatedly into space and returned within a short period of time. As a consequence, aside from making history, they win the $10,000,000 X-Prize to get their company going on the dream of space travel for tourism and industry. more inside
Curious George: Dying peacefully? Seeing the story on Janet Leigh's death it was written that she "died peacefully at home". This reminds me of concepts like dying of old age, and how old people in tribal cultures would go off to die. It got me to wondering: is it physiologically possible to "die peacefully"? Do the primal survival instincts just get turned off like a switch? Or can we pretty much count on a gasping struggle in those last seconds if we're not mercifully knocked out with anesthetics?
