Rubik's Cube "We turn the Cube and it twists us." Erno Rubik
Did you see the gorilla? [Via Crooked Timber.]
FAA official destroys 9/11 tape with his own hands. In a fit of simian rage, I've destroyed a couple CDs (don't try it, unless you like plastic slivers and a shower of silvery dust), but this sounds odd. Haven't they heard of shredders?
