Curious George: Would anyone like to help me? I need some volunteers to help out with a project I'm doing for university. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes of your time. (More inside for anyone who is interested) more inside

Ladies and gentlemen, the new New Coke, Coca-Cola C2.
Writing on the Brain Another excelent commentary via A&LD. Loved the first paragraph. Interesting how A&LD likes to paraphrase articles in a way that doesn't seem to relate in any way to the content of the sources.
Weird Stuff on Ebay Yes, you too can now own a piece of history. A piece of Abraham Lincoln's hair from the night he was assassainated. Most likely fake, but still creepy and fascinating.
Lime Cat I have no idea why.
In Passing ... This is a great little blog that documents conversations heard in passing. "We need a dolphin with opposable thumbs." "The combination of a dolphin and a monkey should do it, then." "Hell of a love child." "You have not been trained to think that way, so you don't. But I see it." --Two guys who appear to be doing more drinking than eating at the hotel restaurant.

With friends like this... Quite the storm in New Zealand over the arrest of alleged (if not terribly competant) spies trying to operate a false passport scam. The New Zealand government has hit the roof and, while their lawyer wants the case thrown out before it reaches trial, even the Aussies are making concerned noises. more inside
Date Jesus. No, really. “This is a legitimate ad. I am highly spiritual, though not religious, and have often been called Jesus because of my appearance and powerful spirituality that I attempt to share with others.” more inside
Tiffany Brissette was the actress who played VICI the robot on that glorious 80s show Small Wonder. Here she is immortalized by an obsessive and confused fan base (David Zapasnik asks "have you ever ridden a robot horse?" among other things; his post is must-read). Another young girl points out "You're so beautiful in so many ways, & so are your hands & knees." more inside
Nothing can prepare you for: CHENGWIN! Yes, Chengwin: half chicken/half penguin and his arch enemies Chunk (half skunk) and Chixon (half Nixon). If this isn't strange enough for you, there's always the adventures of Chabio (half... well, you know). more inside
