Links-a-Plenty: All these poor wittle sites just lying around hoping to be linked to.
  • A lively interview of P.J. O'Rourke at the Onion. Always worth reading. And don’t miss his latest Diary of a Country Gentleman in Forbes.

  • Another interview, this one with Joe Bob Briggs, the king of B-movie hosts. One of the few people who appreciate the difference between high quality trash cinema and plain old trash cinema.
  • This is a wicked optical illusion. In fact I'm not sure I would have believed it if I hadn't used my color checker on it.

  • Take this job and…give it to someone else. The Worst Jobs in Science. I didn’t get past Flatus Odor Judge (aka professional fart-sniffer). "…refuses to divulge the remuneration, but it would seem safe to characterize it thusly: Not enough." Uh-huh.

  • For the Pixie, who is a Monopoly maven, the Probabilities in the Game of Monopoly. And here I thought is was just a matter of evicting widows and orphans.

  • Economists at work.

  • Are the Detroit Tigers the worst ever? Nope. They came through in the end and dodged the record. They even failed at being the worst.

  • Idiots like this EBay scammer should be peeled and rolled in salt.

  • These kids with their Maxims and their FHMs. Didn’t have no silicon or airbrushing in my day. All we had was swanky prose and cheesey graphics. And we were grateful.

  • I'm Greg Brady, the real Greg Brady, all the other Greg Bradys are just imitating…

  • Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny imropetnt tihng is taht frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.
