A preview of the next Bush administration's foreign policy? "If Bush wins a second term with Cheney at his side, neo-conservatives such as Perle might well find themselves back on top. If so, you may be able to buy this book on remainder and use it as a scorecard."
Baghdad Bob Is Back Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf (aka Baghdad Bob) scored a job doing commentary for Abu Dhabi TV. He also claimed that American forces were "lost in the desert . . . They cannot read a compass . . . They are retarded," and, "There is no presence of the American columns in the city of Baghdad at all. We besieged them and we killed most of them." I'm wondering how soon it will be before he scores a job with the networks.

Recently posted over at Comfort Stand Records (the same folks who brought you the late and much lamented 365 Days Project), is the excellent (and free!)Three Forks, the new album by The Apartment.

David Hasselhoff, love him (Geocities and NSF-Anybody) or hate him.
Only spaces, tabs, and newlines are considered syntax. "Most modern programming languages do not consider white space characters syntax, ignoring them, as if they weren't there. We consider this to be a gross injustice [....] Should they be ignored, just because they are invisible?" I consider this the Bizarro Python. [via Joe Marshall on news:comp.lang.scheme]

Who knew that Interpol were such good photographers? Interpol, that most amazingly amazing band has a catalog of their photos online which impress immensely. Not as good as their music to be sure, but still a great set.

Paul O'Neill Spills the Beans Former Sec of Treasury Paul O'Neill's statements are damning. Writer Ron Suskind has the documents to back them up. Not only did O'Neill give Suskind his time, he gave him 19,000 internal documents.
Daily Show Great parody on the Daily Show of how silly the coverage of Howard Dean has gotten (and I'm saying that as someone who thinks Dean will loose to Bush if he's nominated).
I gie ye fair notice: January 25th is Rabbie Burns Day!
"Pinnochia: If Only Sigmund Freud Had Known"
The fetish site for men who like women with abnormally long, misshapen, pinnochio-esque noses. "It's an interesting juxtaposition of sexual pride and humiliation." The front page is entirely SFW, but proceed beyond that at your own risk.
