My Second Favorite F-Word. Any you monkeys know of other stuff like this?
Self-sustaining killer robot creates a stink. This should be especially ominous to monkeys, as these robots would nulify our greatest defense, namely the throwing of feces. We're doomed!
We've been called a lot of things ... Elegant, refined, discreet. Our units are the best around. ElizaJ: Ahead with class.
Curious George: Buying A Bike I'm looking to buy a bike for my daily commute. So far, from looking around, I'm tempted by this one, really tempted by this one, and if pushed would seriously consider this one, although it would probably cause me some serious buyer's remorse. Any monkeys out there have any advice on what to buy, or where (in London) is the best place to do the buying? more inside

I can't see the United States being in Iraq another five years. Sorry for the second post of the day, but I thought this was worth discussing.
Devastating hurricane to make landfall tonight. In the next few hours, Hurricane Ivan will be coming ashore in Alabama and far west Florida. The central pressure of 931 mb would make it the third most intense landfall in the United States since 1961, rivalled only by Hurricanes Andrew (1992) and Camille (1969). Let's hear about those blogs, if you know of any.

A truly useful map In recent posts we've seen a Map of Springfield, an Electoral Vote Map and an even more specific, weighted Electoral Vote Cartogram.
