Snotty indian tech support? They're probably racist says India's economic times. Casteless Americans don't seem to engender much love in some of these people. More forward thinking Indians are getting over this however. The times are a changing, albeit slowly. My only question is WWJD?

"The maxi pads woke me in the middle of the night. I saw maxi-pads as coasters, maxi-pads as rug stoppers, maxi-pads doing everything but the darn dishes. Hey, wait a minute _ I bet they COULD do the darn dishes!"
The Bathroom Diaries Would that I had known of this resource when I lived in NYC.
The Physics of Cows. "Eventually, this vast and ever-growing cube of meat will implode under its own gravitational force, forming a singularity. This is why, as every astronomer knows, the surface of every black hole is always a cow." [Flash.]

Kevin Drum May Have Broke the AWOL Story George W. Bush got 4 credit points (which are earned for retirement) for serving time on October 29, 1972. He received this on an ARF statement of points earned. What is an ARF statement? I let Drum answer that. The answer, as you can see from the top line, is that it is an ARF document, as is this record from 1973-74. So what is ARF? I asked Bob Rogers, a retired Air National Guard pilot who's been following this for some time, and what follows is his interpretation of what happened. ARF is the reserves, and among other things it's where members of the guard are sent for disciplinary reasons. As we all know, Bush failed to show up for his annual physical in July 1972, he was suspended in August, and the suspension was recorded on September 29. He was apparently transferred to ARF at that time and began accumulating ARF points in October. more inside

Go on, be a punk! Okay, I have a new time waster, this little bit o' Flash silliness allows you to crank out a punk ditty of your own creation. Plus, as an added bonus, you get weird cut scenes with blue penguins. Perhaps I'm just having a slow day... WARNING: EXPLICIT LYRICS! NOT WORKSAFE WITHOUT HEADPHONES!

Will Hung is 2004's Bubb Rubb
I've watched American Idol once and found it repulsive (not in a "i don't own a tv" way, in a "I loathe 'reality' programming" way) but Will Hung has rapidly become my new hero. Geeky Civil Engineer student by day, international mega-celebrity by night. The petition to put him back on the show has almost garnered 23,000 signatures. He bangs.
50 Coolest Apes Ever! The latest in Year of the Monkey zippity-doo! (via Retrocrush via Fark, don't hate me because I'm a fan of the Boobies tag) You'd think that #48: Chim-Chim would have beaten out #39: Bear from BJ and the Bear, but perhaps this is more, in the Lettermanian tradition, exhibition than competition. Nevertheless? Enlightening and uplifting.
The Catholic Encyclopedia Written in 1908 and hardly enlightened by today's standards, I still find this an interest resource to have around, whenever looking for the party line on issues like Angels, Demons, Transubstantiation, the Holy Sepulcre, and Masons. Also hosted (and not for the faint of heart) is the complete Summa Theologica of St. Thomas Aquinas.
