Curious George: Noisy neighborhood? I ran a poll on my phpBB site and found that 17 out of 45 people who responded had a noise problem in their neighborhood that bothered them. These users aren't old folks, either; most are in their 20s. Only 38% said their neighborhood was quiet. How is the noise at your place, and where do you live?
Road Rage Cards. Does anyone else think this is a really stupid bad idea? (Though, at least it's not more of the "Tie The Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Ol' SUV" stickers)
Fight! Fight! Fight! An Ask Metafilter thread that no one is following anymore (except for a few of us hopeful technopop fans) has turned into an underground steel cage match between Toxic and Mean. (Sorry to Mefi-watch, but it's pretty funny. Especially since we all know the two main characters. And they think they're alone in the arena. Shh!)
The Periodic Table of Funk If your gonna get your funk on, ya gotta know all the basic elements that are used to build up our funky universe. Who knew Barney Fife was a basic building block of funk molecules?

Man dies at the evil hands of......a shrimp? I would definetely call this an unfortunate series of events.
Drum Lessons - Lesson #1: How to play Rock and Roll rhythm. (.wmv)
Commercial Breaks (90MB avi file) A fascinating programme on BBC2 television about Imagine Software Limited. The Liverpool software giant crashed out during the summer after a life of a little over 18 months, during which time it produced more hype than any other software house before. The company appeared to bask in self-created publicity, much of which was very clever, and so it seems appropriate that its death should also have been as well recorded for posterity by the media it sought for its promotion, as had its successes in life. more inside

Witnessing to Liberals. By elevating science to supreme authority, [liberal Christians] assume the Bible is a fallible human document, approach Scripture with an antisupernatural bias, and dismiss miracles as the fantasies of ignorant people in biblical times who did not understand the laws of nature. . . . Confronted with such a plethora of unbiblical ideas, conservative Christians might wonder how to begin in evangelizing their liberal counterparts. Following are some guidelines I have found helpful when dialoguing with liberal Christians.
