Bush suckers cable news into carrying a campaign speech. The White House described it as a significant speech on terrorism and the economy. It wasn't - it was a campaign speech carried in full on the 24-hour cable news networks. more inside
Weight Watchers recipe cards from 1974 - Mein Gott im himmel! These are repugnant! Perhaps the idea was aversion therapy? There are such horrors as the chilled celery log, the fish "tacos" (made using toast - tortillas hadn't made it across the border in 1974), the liver pãté en bukkake, and the ever popular Eraserhead roast chicken. Eeeeeviiiiil!!! more inside
The CIA finally admitted that although Saddam had intentions to build them (WMD's) -- big surprise here -- He had no economical means to do so. If I recall correctly, it was just a little over a year ago that the ppl atop were swearing up and down that there WERE indeed WMD's and that we were all gonna die. I don't care how aloof Bush is, or how hard-faced Cheney can get, this WILL hurt. (at least someone has the silver bullet now..USE IT) Let's see how quickly this report gets buried by the media.
Geek Test - I scored a 1481. I wonder how all of you Monkeys would score.
e-petitions Is anyone else's inbox being bombarded with e-petitions like this? I get them all the time and wonder if they ever accomplish anything. Furthermore, when they ask you to send every 10th signature to president@whitehouse.gov, who actually reads it?

We've all heard of Watson and Crick. Who knew about this guy? DNA pioneer Maurice Wilkins died yesterday at the age of 88. One of three Nobel laureates for his work in helping discover the helical structure of DNA, Wilkins is probably the least known of the four people who were most responsible for describing DNA as we know it. more inside
The 'smoking louse'. A study at the University of Utah shows that only one of the two lice species on current Homo Sapiens evolved on us. This proves contact with earlier human species - perhaps Homo Erectus. more inside
Show us your papers. Yet another national ID proposal, but it looks like this one has wings. Employers would be required to check for an id card approved by Homeland Security or face up to five years in jail. [egregiously stolen from the ever-excellent Macintouch more inside
Vice Presidential debate. Anyone watch it? What's your take? And do you think it will affect the vote? more inside
Carl Lewis: Oh dear.
We all have moments of poor judgement in our life; why highlight yours on your website?
Furious George: how to destroy A&E? I really enjoyed the BBC miniseries about "Charles II: the power and the passion", called "The Last King" (inaccurate title) in North America, and so when I saw the DVD at my local store, I got it (hey, when you feel like an Exclusion Crisis, you need an Exclusion Crisis). Only when I got home, I realised that the number of minutes sounded low. more inside
Kinsey a perv? Saw this over at That Other Place and knew it would make its way here sooner or later. So, sooner. more inside
Rodney Dangerfield. Goodnight, funny man.
Is Bush using an earpiece? (via boing boing). And I'll take this one step further... more inside
