Video game gifts for the obscenely rich - Dec. 6, 2005
Topic: PC Video Games 2:07 pm EST, Dec 27, 2005

I'm going to tell you a little secret about Bill: While you can't turn a corner without seeing him pimping the Xbox 360 these days, he actually prefers PC gaming. Most folks think he's dreaming up the next big thing for Windows when he's locked away in his office. Uh-uh. He's working to level up on the Mal'Ganis server in "World of Warcraft".

Since this article has been posted and talked about on the Mal'Ganis forum for World of Warcraft I figured I should post it here. Bill Gates plays WoW and is a Night Elf. Now if I just knew what his name was we could all play gank the gates.

Joss Whedon lets ''Firefly'' go
Topic: Movies 5:18 pm EST, Dec 20, 2005

Whedon's fond memories are also tainted by Serenity's status as a franchise nonstarter; despite Universal's best marketing efforts, the film only mustered $25 million. ''In the end, it was what it was: a tough sell,'' says Whedon, adding that it appears the Firefly saga has reached its conclusion. He has no regrets — and he's moving on.

The DOs and DON'Ts of Picking Up a Girl in the Computer Lab
Topic: Humor 12:05 pm EST, Dec 16, 2005

DO leave your iPod conspicuously out next to the keyboard

Like the colorful plumage of a peacock in the animal kingdom, iPods are the sleek fleathers that we humans spread to attract the opposite sex. If you're listening to music in the lab, leave your iPod in plain sight, where a passing female can see it. If she smiles approvingly, nod at her, then caw and peck at her flesh. This will show her that you are interested as well.

DON'T post to a blog

I cannot stress this enough: do not let a girl see you posting to any kind of blog. You will never, ever get laid. Seriously. Take it from me.

Haha this really made me laugh today.

Police whack giant snow penis
Topic: Humor 2:24 pm EST, Dec 14, 2005

New Windsor - What, some might ask Jessica Sherer, is with the giant snow penis she built on her boyfriend's lawn this week?

I had to meme this because of the title alone. The rest of the story is mediocre at best. But the end has one last quote that is meme worthy.

Biasotti worries the display might give others ideas. "Now we're going to get snow penises popping up all over town," he said.

Deal nips lawsuit over showing breasts to ape
Topic: Current Events 9:23 am EST, Dec  2, 2005

Two animal handlers who say they were fired for refusing to expose their breasts to a 300-pound gorilla have settled their lawsuit against the Gorilla Foundation on undisclosed terms.

Nancy Alperin and Kendra Keller, both in their mid-40s, claimed that Gorilla Foundation president Francine “Penny” Patterson pressured them to indulge Koko the gorilla’s “nipple fetish” as a way of bonding with the 33-year-old female.

The foundation denied the allegations.

How Swearing Works
Topic: Science 4:47 pm EST, Dec  1, 2005

Many studies suggest that the brain processes swearing in the lower regions, along with emotion and instinct. Scientists theorize that instead of processing a swearword as a series of phonemes, or units of sound that must be combined to form a word, the brain stores swear words as whole units [ref]. So, the brain doesn't need the left hemisphere's help to process them. Swearing specifically involves:

* The limbic system, which also houses memory, emotion and basic behavior. The limbic system also seems to govern vocalizations in primates and other animals, and some researchers have interpreted some primate vocalizations as swearing.
* The basal ganglia, which play a large role in impulse control and motor functions.

So, you can think of swearing as a motor activity with an emotional component.

Driving Habits
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:13 pm EST, Nov 28, 2005

What a concept! When you have to drive around lots of pedestrians and other vehicles in chaos you learn to drive without hitting other people and cars. Which explains why those of us who can pay attention to other vehicles around them are much better drivers. Then again, I can't say that -- when I'm flying, I am aware of *nothing* behind me. Then again, when you are the fastest car on the road, you don't. Because the police are the only ones who are faster and they will let you know when they get there with the siren.

But I stand firm by my principles -- the speed limit should be replaced by the traffic speed advisory signs like you see for on- and off-ramps. I know of one ramp in my own city I've pulled at 80MPH (without loosing control, omg) which is marked as a 45MPH ramp. Yes, I've merged into traffic speeding above the limit! What a concept! I've _accelerated_ on the on-ramp, merging in at the speed limit! It's called an acceleration lane for a reason.

I recognize that the article mostly talks about slower speed (50 MPH and down) driving in cities, as opposed to low-flight as evidenced by the AutoBahns. In a situation like the AutoBahn, it does make sense to have a clear road, with clearly defined lanes, etc. Driving at 80+ is much different than driving at 50MPH and down. Believe me, I've driven in the northern territories much more than most people do.

Mounting ISO images in a virtual CD-ROM drive
Topic: Technology 1:09 pm EST, Nov 28, 2005

Microsoft's internal, unsupported application for mounting CD/DVD ISOs as drives. No more stupid daemon tools with their spyware filled BS that takes 20 minutes to get rid of!
