French retards can sue their birth doctors for not killing them in the womb... I thought the link I posted about a woman suing her boss when she crashed her car after driving home drunk from a staff party was the height of lawsuit insanity, but this takes the cake: in France, if you are seriously disabled, you have the right to sue a doctor who failed to recommend an abortion to your mother.... .... Homosaywhat?

'I think my standards have lowered enough that now I think ``good design'' is when the page doesn't irritate the living fuck out of me.' Does jwz have a point? (After all, he wrote enough of Netscape to know a bloated browser when he sees one.)

Nepal's Crown Prince Dipendra kills family, self over arranged marriage dispute. Proving the astrologers wrong, who had predicted that the king would die if the Crown Prince was allowed to marry before the age of 35; the 30 year old Eton educated prince disputing over his choice of bride, killed his parents, brother, sister, and other relatives in what is labeled as the worst mass killing of royalty since the Romanovs. more.

A very pretty digital film Actually made waaaay back in the year 1996, though it's still quite nice. The fine people over at Paperveins have quite a bit of neat interactive art, although their servers seem to be a little slow... Please be gentle!
