Sacrificing without Digesting

And now, on a related note for yesterday's posts, this is Tess Gerritsen again on human sacrifice. It still exists today, only now it isn't sanctioned by any government or society. In this regard I suppose it's similar to slavery -- witness the recent brouhaha over the forced servitude (i.e., slavery) of children and adolescents in China. Well, at least I haven't heard of anything similar regarding human sacrifice lately, but it's early days in the new century.

Angry Alien Productions: 30-Second Bunnies Theatre and other cartoons.

"... in which a troupe of bunnies parodies a collection of movies by re-enacting them in 30 seconds, more or less." And they said that it couldn't be done. A big collection of funny stuff. Be sure to check out Rocky Horror.

Bowling with a Pug

Hmmm. I don't think I would let these morons dogsit for me. I have to admit this MySpaceTV video is funny, though, and the music is great! Hooray to Samson! Nor were any guitarists harmed.

The Thought For Today

"Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air - explode softly - and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth - boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either - not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination." - Robert Fulghum

"In Massachusetts, Republicans are upset over a new tax hike on dogs. It was slipped into a bill at the last minute by Democrats. Democrats claim they're only going to be taxing dogs that make over $250,000 a year, though." - Jay Leno

Good Experience Games - good games, fun games

Good Experience Games - good games, fun games

"These are online games that, in my opinion, offer a "good experience" - good game design with an overall attention to quality. Unless otherwise noted, they're all free, online, and available right now." And about 3/4 of the way down the page, you'll find The Hitchhiker's Guide. You'ld better get started before the Earth is destroyed.

Roswell Revisited

So was this guy nuts or what? Deathbed affidavits are thought to be true because what do you have to lose? I'm not sure that's accurate, because one's family can lose. The living still have something to lose in a lot of cases. But I have to admit, what did this guy have to lose by telling the truth? That still doesn't mean he saw a flying saucer, of course. But maybe he saw something he wasn't supposed to see...

The Thought For Today

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed a desire to become a "great" writer.When asked to define "great", he said: "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, wail, howl in pain, desperation and anger!" He now works for Microsoft writing error messages...
