I was raised a Catholic. Sort of. My family wasn’t particularly religious, although I did go to Catholic schools until the fourth grade. After that, I moved to the US, went to public school, and attended Baptist churches for a while where I was told that the Catholic church worshiped Mary over Jesus, and that… Read more Catholic Rebirth
All my life I’ve tried to create revelry and camaraderie by putting together contests where people could participate and compete in. I’ve seen others do this and have amazing success at it. But I… well… queue the violin:
Behold, the power of the Internet! Two-hundred thousand years of human evolution and technological revolution, all so we can laugh at a kitten going buck-wild on a laptop.
Alright, folks: time for another edition of Le Linkage, the incidental series chronicling some of the more interesting pages I find in my stumbles through the Web. Today’s episode features stories about Nigerian scammers, anthropology, human enhancement, science fiction, some humor, and of course, another simple online game. Enjoy.
This is a follow up to a previous post about the matter.

I just thought this was incredibly cool: a guy decided to do a draw up showing what Futurama may have looked like as an anime. Click the image for the full size one. Aside from the complete lack of tentacles, short skirted uniforms showing off white panties, mecha [Edit: D’oh! Forgot, Bender and Tinny Tim.],… Read more Futurama as Anime
The title doesn’t really mean anything. I haven’t rebooted my life, though I have rebooted my eating patterns.

Expires on January 31, 2007. Otherwise, have at it. If you haven’t had Cold Stone ice cream, do yourself a favor and try it out, then use this to pick up some for someone special. You can print it out without any of the extra Gnorb.NET stuff here
Ok, so the election has passed and I can now get back to regular blogging, right? Actually, the election’s been over for a while and I’ve just needed a break from real blogging (as if I’ve ever actually done any of that before). At any rate, it’s (about darn) time for another episode of Le… Read more Le Linkage #11
I think I’m going to puke. What a whopper! This towering 8,000-calorie beefburgerâ€™s certainly not for the faint-hearted. It has four slabs of beef weighing 2lbs, three cheese layers, four bacon rashers, lettuce and tomato. The Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona, has wheelchairs to cart off belly-busted customers who tackle the Quadruple Bypass Burger.… Read more Quadruple Bypass… Burger?
