Yahoo slideshows. These showed up during MeFi's absence. I personally favor them over the "Most Viewed Images" list. Workers beware, it's effortless to blow an hour or so checking out all of the neatly organized topics.

My favorite part of yahoo right now is the Most Emailed Articles/Pictures list. It's seriously great... the most important, funniest and craziest news is all there.

The problem is that they are too _neatly organized_. I feel like I'm looking at People magazine. I'll take

I disagree that these are well done, as Jason said. They have "commercial breaks" in the middle, and Yahoo's editorial judgement runs in the USAToday/Oddly enough! direction. What exactly is to like about them? I like the NYT's "interactive features" (This is a bad example, it's just one page, but, many are multipage popups with helpful rollovers.)

Ok, now I want to know how it is possible for a bus driver to hit and kill an elephant? How can you not see something that big in the road? How can you not see two of them?

(Sorry, but I cannot seem to get a link to the accompanying story). Here is the text:

A crane attempts to remove a dead elephant after it was hit by a bus and killed in the city of Guwahati, the capital of the eastern state of Assam in India, August 22, 2001. Two domesticated elephants were killed when they were hit by a bus while crossing a bridge in Guwahati. The bus driver was killed and several passengers were injured in the accident on Saraighat bridge over the river Brahmaputra. (Caroline Singh/Reuters)

Heh heh...I recently saw a short film about an artist building and installing a to-scale model of, er, "equipment" for this DC landmark.

When I saw this picture, I thought that Dubya was smoking for a second. Not to hijack the thread, but does anyone know who the last President who smoked was? Just curious.

I meant while as President.

Reagan didn't smoke, however he did do cigarette ads. Draw your own conclusions....

Well, Clinton smoked... but he didn't inhale!

(Now if you will excuse me, I will hop into my time machine and take that joke back to 1992, where it will be piss-yer-pants funny.)
