A history of gay bath houses. Not remotely safe for work. [via a segment I heard on NPR]
What the bagel man saw - An economist gave up his job to sell bagels to companies on the honor system and tracked all the data. "By measuring the money collected against the bagels taken, he could tell, down to the penny, just how honest his customers were. Did they steal from him?

After the fall of Constantinople, the city of Trebizond and its empire (map) held out until 1461. The first three chapters of a detailed history are online (1, 2, 3). more inside
"What we need to do is to help in the cause of, ah, downfall of California," an employee is heard saying on the tapes. "You guys need to pull your megawatts out of California on a daily basis." More Enron tapes from CBS. Too bad the Governator wasn't there to fight the bad guys.
