Eric Strand finished
this year's Grandma's Marathon in Duluth in 6 hours and 15 minutes. But before he got to the starting line that day, he had run the entire course backwards

This media world of ours is teeming with hidden messages under the apparent ones. For instance: Bateman
shows us Bush's actual meanings of his latest radio address. The Nightly Potato
at AtomFilms is just one more spud in a tv universe of spuds. And you think you really understand "Who's on First?" Maybe you can, if you take a Star Wars approach

There is bad taste and then there is really bad taste
. I'm not sure how the scoring works, but I think my high score is as follows: dead: 2 men, 3 women, 0 child - injured: 2 men, 1 woman, 1 child.

DEA leaked report on Israeli spy ring
Leaked report with blacked out names and no title etc? Note that the spies, if such they are, were gathering info dealing with drug enforcement and not with American military. Is this good? No Bad? yes. But seemingly not bad enough to anything other than shipping them out. Israeli mb big on Ecstasy and DEA well aware of this (If I am, why wouldn't they?). pdf file

The mention of Benedict Arnold was inadvertent.
Just caught a fun piece on NPR about 'Kill Duck Before Serving
', a collection of notable corrections printed in The New York Times. Miscaptioned photos, famously bad journalist math (how
many bras?), and transcription gaffes ('veteran,' not 'Bedouin'). Great stuff, whether you love or hate the 'paper of record.' One gem: "A caption in Business Day with an article about the National Bank of Kuwait mistranslated the Arabic script of the bank symbol. It says, 'National Bank of Kuwait' [not 'There is no god but Allah']." The Times regrets the error.

Germs from Jupiter? Viruses from Venus?
Nope, just live
space-borne bacteria discovered floating around Earth. "Although the bugs from space are similar to bacteria on Earth, the scientists said the living cells found in samples of air from the edge of the planet's atmosphere are too far away to have come from Earth." (via waldo.net)

More Scandinavian lunacy. Sure, everyone hates Flash/Shockwave, the pestilence of the Internet, yada yada yada. But everyone loved the race-track builder
, and making your own rock video of an iron-pumping cow
is easy, fun and worth downloading Macromedia plug-ins.
Bonus points for any Finns out there who want to provide a translation.
