Well, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, but this can’t end well:

Eugene Terre’blanche hacked to death this weekend

Any hate-man that high-profile getting whacked, that’s not going to leave his remaining compatriates in a particularly JOLLY mood.

Left Behind: the video game (a review). For no apparent reason, it gives one of the best and most succinct explanations of rapture philosophy that I’ve ever read.

I think I broke a couple toes just now.

How was your day?

nerdy religious propaganda:

first, for reference, chick tracts. Little cartoony pieces of evangelical Christian propaganda.

Now, feast your eyes on these:
Who Will be Eaten First? Chick meets Cthulhu.

GALACTUS IS COMING. Chick meets Marvel comics.

How much do you trust your ATM?
Man used MP3 player to hack ATMs
Hacking many standalone ATMs is as easy as googling for a master password

drug revolt

Sunday, November 12th, 2006

There is a revolution brewing. Medical students refuse pharmaceutical company freebies.

At least one well-publicized pharmacy is morally opposed to manufacturer-recommended inflated prices (and they do mail order).

warsaw’s finest

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

I had forgotten exactly how fabulous Attacked By Thugs! is, a brief account of the author’s assault by a bunch of punk kids, followed by a long account of the violent but utterly fruitless attempts of the cops to find the perps.

“I was assaulted by four guys just past that bridge!” I yelled when i got in the van. I barely had time to get my foot off the pavement before we were shooting down the highway in the wrong direction, sirens blaring, shotguns skittering around on the floor.


There were six cops in the van with me, dressed in full black uniform and combat boots. There were various firearms and body armor piled on the floor, left over from the WTO summit the week before…We were still heading the wrong direction, and whoever had designed the Warsaw highway system had not apparently heard of the U-Turn.
