Green Feces: Funny stuff over at the Moonlight Health message board, where people talk about their abnormally-colored poo. Some of my favorites:
“I had a yellow and blue snowcone last night and I got green shit today so since two others have had blue slushies I can pretty much sense what it came from.”
“I WAS STONED AND ATE AN ENTIRE PACKAGE OF TWIZZLERS. NEXT DAY POOP WAS GREEN. IT LOOKED PRETTY COOL BUT THEY WERE CHERRY TWIZZLERS SO GREEN POO-POO WAS A BIT UNEXPECTED IF I DIE FROM THIS I’M SUING TWIZZLERS OR HAUNTING THEM OR SOMETHING.”
“I had about 5 glasses of grape Kool-Aid last night, and this moring my doodie was BRIGHT green. The highly artifically colored drink/food mystery continues…”
“i believe that kool-aid is a huge culprit! i drank a whole jug of blue kool-aid yesterday and pow! fluorecent green dookie…come to think of it, i wish i’d turned the light off to see if it glowed!”
Anchor Attributes: Fascinating overview of what attributes people are using for the A (anchor) element on their web sites.
Apple: Building Music for the Movies. Apple profiles Danny Elfman, one of my favorite composers. Excellent.
LiquidMetal: Hasta La Vista, Titanium. I hope Apple’s next Powerbook casing is made out of this stuff. A slick metallic glass case!
But when heated in its raw form to 750 degrees Fahrenheit…the mysterious alloy does something that amazes even the most unflappable metallurgist. It softens into a viscous tar that can be molded like plastic. Then, when cooled rapidly, it congeals into a solid that’s twice as hard as titanium or stainless steel, and so smooth that paint won’t stick to it. The alloy, which scientists liken to “metallic glass” is called LiquidMetal.
AlterNet: Was Paul Wellstone Murdered? This article seems to smack more of sensationalistic journalism than it does offer any proof or theories that Wellstone’s death was anything but an accident. Some conspiracy theory discussion here.
Skeptical Inquirer: Why Was The X-Files So Appealing?
Daily Times of Pakistan: Ignorance of a hegemonic imagination.
That most non-Muslim Americans are abysmally uninformed and misinformed about the basic teachings of Islam is certain; what is less clear, however, is why.
Village Voice: Blame It on Al Qaeda. I’ve noticed this too. The mainstream press seems to jump to conclusions too quickly and too often. Something tragic happens; try to link it to terrorism to make it a more sensational story. A serial killer happens to be a Muslim; oh, he must be linked to Islamic fundamentalism somehow. A Senator’s plane crashes; oh it must be a secret GOP plot. Blogger hacked; it must have been Userland!
Nice Design: Spiffy new design over at Cederholm. Great work! As some people have guessed I am in the tedious process of coverting my site layout to CSS, driven by MoveableType. Slow-going…
