Well it's friday, and like the rest of you, I could use a good laugh.
If you're going to sell your house, nowadays, it's important to take pictures of the exterior, the interior to share with prospective buyers, what a great deal they're getting.
Real Estate pictures.

Attacked By Thugs!
- Maciej Ceglowski
is accosted by young, dorky thugs in Warsaw. After flagging down a van full of police to report the incident, frenzied pursuit-driven hijinks ensue. Almost makes me want to move to Poland and become a cop. Anyone have any sort of similar, amusing, crazed police experience? (I realise there are plenty of non-amusing, crazed police stories out there too, unfortunately.)

was bought by the same town on the same day.
Watch the cool (but large) flash video documentary.
Or download it here:

Virus replication is a feature!
"If you are using a Macintosh e-mail program that is not from Microsoft, we recommend checking with that particular company. But most likely other e-mail programs like Eudora are not designed to enable virus replication." The original URL is 404. I wonder if Microsoft will be exerting their copyrights to force archive.org to remove this.
