Making an IE Voodoo Doll | DIE DIE MSIE!!!!

Find the Animials in the Underground Map | Very inventive use of time.

Keepers of the Lost Ark? | It’s the stuff of legends and Indiana Jones plots, but a small Ethiopian city of Aksum says that it’s Christian Population has been in its presence for nearly 3,000 years, and that it is guarded by a succession of virgin monks. Of course, no one can ever see it, so it will be difficult to prove.

Your Creepy Ex-Co-Workers Will Kill Facebook | Cory Doctorow has a bit of a rip on Facebook and makes some interesting analogies to the early AOL and discusses “Boyd’s Law” and the probability of the network putting one in an awkward social situation.

Voice of the Underground sacked for spoofs | Emma Clarke was cut off on her consulting gig with the Transport for London company after she posted a series of spoofs on her personal website. I’m sorry for her loss, but these are absolutely and wonderfully brilliant.

Garlic is really good for you | Although your significant other may disagree and there’s a smell, it is shown that garlic helps trigger hydrogen sulfide production in cells, which “acts as an anti-oxidant and transmits cellular signals that relax blood vessels and increase blood flow” according to the New York Times article.

Feds cancel Amazon Customer ID request | A judge ruled that customers have a First Amendment right to keep their reading habits from the government. Thank God someone is standing up and actually READING the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    You know, I've often had a similar thought about social networking sites... my various social network memberships have put me in a couple of situations where I've had to decline/block/deny connections or "friendings" from people who probably had no idea why I did it.

    regarding editing the coentmms I don't edit dissenting opinions. You can see many on almost any given post. I edit profanity and random, abusive off-topic shots taken at other commentators. If I want to keep featuring my blog address in my client newspapers, I have to keep it family friendly.@ derek My readership continues to grow and far less than 1% of readers leave coentmms. So I don't care if a few adolescent miscreants drop out because I edit their coentmms.@ sean Those studies are a bit misleading because fish isn't the only place you can get 06. You can also get it from flax, seaweed, and some other plant places in small amounts. Animal protein, including fish, has been shown to feed cancer, and fish has been shown to contain high levels of all kinds of toxins. Getting more 06 is good, getting it from plants is WAY better. ESPECIALLY if you've had cancer. Thanks for the input.
