A student asked the Master, "What is the nature of the Unofficial Daria Movie Rumor Page?
The Master repiled, "The Page is a long, confusing story told backwards
. It is lies and half-truths
, yet it is the greater truth. It is a mirror, a puppet show
, a morality tale, a fiction which is real life, an homage yet the reverse of an homage
. It is the future, set in the present, retelling the past
. It is the present, set in the present, retelling the present."
The student said, "Huh
The Master continued, "If all else fails
, look at the very bottom of the Page, past the links and the Web rings."
The student, not understanding, did as the Master told him. It was then that he was enlightened

televised suicide: the goofiest bin laden rumor yet?
good lord. the story claims bin laden is going to kill himself on tv to trigger attacks on monuments around the world. even the tabloids have been staying away from the attacks, for the most part. but when this story
went by on a ticker while i was surfing, i just had to look. what's the strangest post-attack rumor you've heard so far? i want obscure, here, people, not anything about malls on halloween.

Apple Computer will introduce a 'breakthrough device' next week.
Will this be the long-rumored Apple PDA that Newton fanatics have been asking for? A device for wirelessly streaming your mp3 collection through your stereo? Your basic portable mp3 player? Or something that hasn't shown up on any of the rumor sites at all? Whatever it ends up being, my curiousity is officially piqued.

10 police officers found.
I hope this isn't another mistake, but "A report just in says ten police officers missing since the collapse of the World Trade Centre buildings have been found alive under the rubble." Post details as you find them.

Sounds like Apple is working their ass off to get new products out to show in January. The Cubebook
sounds cool and I am sure there would be pictures if MacOS Rumors wasn't in Apple's back pocket.

As conspiracy rumors go, this is a doozy: World Oil Magazine
is hearing from its Mid East sources that the Arab states are so angry with Gore's choice of a Jewish running mate that they're going to cut back production in the hopes of swinging the election to Bush. I'm sure the Gore team gave plenty of thought as to how Lieberman would play in Peoria, but I wonder if they considered how much he would antagonize Damascus?
