Krankie hurt in fall from beanstalk can only mean that it's Panto season again. Sir Ian McClellan is playing Widow Twanky in Kevin Spacey's Aladdin from this Friday. But it's not just those upstarts: every city in Britain has one, and it's a tradition with much history and wonder. Can Christmas be Christmas without some good old-fashioned cross-dressing and double entendre for the whole family? Is this stuff only found in the UK? It's behind me, boys and girls?
Japanese men can now rest in the lap of a sexy...foam pillow. I'm not sure what to make out of this, but it's a sure nod to the creative spirit of the Japanese.
It's Like Christmas 1998 All Over Again If you're not busy between 1900 and 2200 hours Mountain Time (-7 GMT), you can turn this guy's Christmas tree lights on and off via his webcam.

Tallest highway bridge in the world, and 15 years in the making, the Millau Viaduct opens tomorrow. It crosses the Tarn River valley at a deck height of 807 ft (246 m), more or less, depending on your source for the numbers. The towers have a height of 1,118 ft (341 m). The press has posted their typical microscopic photos for the plebes, so I tried digging around for better pix: 1, 2, 3, 4. Any better/newer ones?
