Tooltip Advertisments Maybe I'm behind the curve, but here's something I've never seen before: advertisements embedded in a mouseover/ tooltip & indicated as such by a double underline. One more cipher in the rich internet wasteland.
For them, 'gays in the military' is a necessity: The Semen Warriors Of New Guinea. Inspired by a recent comment by flashboy. Oh, and here is the corresponding MeFi thread.
What You See is Not What You Get Or, how everyone thought that major newspaper websites online represented the content of the print edition and were wrong.
A small victory in the fat war McDonalds will be eliminating "super size" items from its menu, bending to pressure to cater to Americans' growing preference for healthier food options. Here's a healthier food option for you: don't eat any fast food, period..
FMA just doesn't quite go far enough eh? It seems that some on the right don't think the Presidents new Federal Marriage Amendment cuts it. They argue that it's a sellout, endorsing unmarried homosexuality. I have a feeling they would prefer this amendment, from Protestants for the Common Good.
Snarky but nice. Moomin meets Lewis Carroll.
Ladies and gentlemen, The Jesus Beanie. And... "at the request of the children, each Jesus Beanie comes with attached underwear!"

Bottled water actually tap water. Coca-Cola admits that its Dasani brand of bottled water is, in the UK, made from tap water in Kent. UK water groups are in arms over the implications for plain tap water, and, hopefully, consumers will be as well, since filtered tap water and filtered source water are different products and probably shouldn't be marketed as interchangeable. The interesting spin on this (not terribly well-reported) story is that it also broke in Canada in July, 2002. How is it that their other production facilities weren't questioned? What about the point made in the Canadian article - does this use of municipal water supplies tax the system, and how is Coke remunerating the city? And how did no one ever notice that an urban production facility would need to have their water brought in from an outside source? more inside
John Edwards Quitting Race Now the real fun begins. Who will be Kerry's running mate? I'm thinking Clark. How dirty will the campaign be? Bush called Kerry to congratulate him. Oliver Willis has a parody of that conversation. It seems that Kerry-basher Glenn Reynolds doesn't have anything to say.
