Bean me!

Ground Chuck

Being shopped around right now is a possible live action movie, or an animated series (I think the latter is far more likely) that will at last tell us the true story of the (second) greatest hero of our land.

Behold, the Legend of Chuck Norris.

Heavens Gates

Bill Gates sez:
Levy: You also talk about improved security in Vista.
Gates: Yes, although security is a [complicated concept]. You’re [referring to] the fact that there have been some security updates already for Windows Vista. This is exactly the way it should work. When somebody comes to us [after discovering a vulnerability] we’ve got [a fix] before there is any exploit. So it’s totally according to plan, and that’s why we have the whole Windows Update thing. We made it way harder for guys to do exploits. The number [of violations] will be way less because we’ve done some dramatic things [to improve security] in the code base. Apple hasn’t done any of those things.


"Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine."

Yeah, there's a smart move, Bill.


Dateline: IRC

I keep seeing these "To Catch a Predator" bits on Dateline...ok, I hear about them. I haven't watched the show in years, can't be bothered. But I digress.

I keep hearing about these bits, and I just want someone to make a parody where they go to ambush some guy they've lured in, and it's a *real* Predator. As in the thing that killed Jesse Ventura, and tried to blow up Arnie real good. The image of this encounter amuses me greatly.



Another badass quiz from eSPIN-the-Bottle...

Which Sexy Are You?


You keep it real smooth, all James Bond-style. The suave, international hotties will love you.

You’re sophisticated, mature, and you’ve got fairly expensive tastes. (And your personal hygiene? Outstanding.) Just be careful not to get too carried away. Big, bold romantic gestures are sexy and all, but there’s something to be said for sharing a laugh or dancing in the rain. (As long as you’re not wearing any suede.)

Take This Quiz!

Wait...what? This quiz is broken! Bwahahaha.
