Can you turn crappy vodka into good vodka using nothing more than a Brita filter? A team of scientists set out to find whether a 1.5L bottle of shit vodka can be charcoal filtered to smoothness. The opinion of the panelists was that the result after 5 filtrations was exceptionally smooth and better in this respect than Ketel One, although it did not posess its character.
Curious, George: Food, glorious food! I'm sitting in my (slightly gross) dorm room, trying to think of food I can easily make with my electric kettle, the slightly risky microwave in the lounge, or my bare hands. I've got a tiny fridge, but as grocery shopping occurs rarely, long lasting foodstuffs are a plus. What are your favorite bizarre/easy/comforting snack foods from those first "Oh my god, mom's not here to cook me dinner" days/months/years? Extra points if it's vaguely healthy!

Nice elephant you got there.
This Link has been Making the Rounds It's shown as evidence of a grand conspiracy in certain Florida counties to mess around with the vote. However, by simply looking at past elections 1996 and 2000, it's easy to see that despite the difference between party registration and actual voting patterns, it's not quite that big of a difference. *NOTE - WHEN CLICKING ON THESE LINKS, SELECT OFFICE - US PRESIDENT, THEN ON "PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" for county results - sorry for the extra work, can't get directly to the proper page* more inside

Tanks against US citizens? Freedom? It seems it didn't interest the media too much(there's a war goin on, ya know, but it interested some to remove the video from the web (via BoingBoing)? Anyone remember tiananmen square? more inside
Curious, George: Help me dress my husband, please? Mr. MonkeyToes has decided that he needs more flair in his professional wardrobe. Any recommendations for books on clothing for men? Ideal book leans toward the classic and conservative, and has color illustrations. Though I recall a thread on this topic on Metafilter, my MeFi-fu turned up nothing, and Amazon offers too much choice. What book has helped you or your guy become a spiffier dresser?

Finally a reason for pop up ads: Humor. This is just ridiculous. If I ever see someone with this phone (considering Pink is the new "Ghetto Black," it could very well be a man), I will personally slap the crap out of them.*

OOOK, so who wants to put this live-wire to their forehead? it'll help you remember better...I promise. (I can see it now: Monkeys the world over walking around with electrodes on their foreheads to promote memory and prevent double posting)
Curious George: Go, my seeker monkeys! Fly! I'm looking for a site I saw on Metafilter ages ago. It was some art project, where some Spanish (I think he was Spanish) guy took loads of headshots of people in different social groups. I've searched and searched but I can't find it. If anyone could help me out, I'd <3 them forever. more inside

Army Spc. Bryan Freeman Jr was killed Monday in Iraq. Bryan was the 1,334 US soldier killed in Iraq. Bryan was a very good friend of my wife in High School and needless to say she was very upset. Normally I would not post such a downer of a link but I feel that in general many of these soldiers that have been killed lately have not been getting the attention they deserve. RIP Bryan.
