The O'Canada Factor Since today Canadians can watch Fox News too. Bill O'Reilly of The O'Reilly Factor, as a special treat to his newly found Canadian audience, devotes his entire show to Canada and even interviews himself. "Here at The Factor, we've talked about boycotting Canada in the past. Think this is an empty threat? Ask France. Face it; Canada is utterly dependent on America for its economic well being. Last time I checked, Americans make 40 million visits to Canada a year. We spend upwards of $10 billion and this doesn't even include all the hidden taxes those communists levy on us as we're leaving their land of igloos and left-wing defeatism." Read the transcript.

Great Hackers
(second post today, I know, but it's a great essay)
Kopi Luwak A food scientist has cracked the secrets of the world's most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak (described by some as "earthy, musty, syrupy, smooth and rich, with both jungle and chocolate undertones"), whose beans pass through the intestinal tract of an Indonesian civet before being roasted and savoured. Maybe they could ask this Belgian artist to build a machine to make this coffee without the help of cats?
