Original Recipe...

Or extra nasty?

I wouldn't drink this if you paid me

But I would probably buy it for the box and then try to sucker a friend into trying it.

Best possible recipe: Melamine sunrise

Still need Christmas gifts? There are many fine looking products here. Note: product categories are not based on any logic I can understand.

And Jack Black as Jesus Christ

Of course I'm probably the last to find this, but so glad I did.

Prop 8 sucks. And here to tell you why is writer Marc Shaiman and starring (in part): Margaret Cho, Andy Richter, Maya Rudolph, John C. Reilly, Allison Janney, Kathy Najimy, Sarah Chalke, Jack Black & Neil Patrick Harris.

The whole story here

Does Not Compute....

This is your modem:

This is your modem on drugs:

A brief photographic history of computing @ SFU.

There is tons of info out there about the history of computers, with many amusing images. I like this one (for image content - NOT page design).

My personal computer history runs about 20 years. That doesn't seem that long, until I watch this:

That was my first computer. No hard drive, so I stored my documents on this:

First lesson learned. Do not put computer storage cassettes in your car stereo. It's like listening to a fax tone set to 11.

Still waiting for some sort of direct neural interface. Think of all the rsi issues it would solve.

We still have a looonnnngggg way to go.

The Senate Just Got Entertaining

So Hillary Rodham Clinton is leaving the senate to become Barack Obama's Secretary of State. That means there's a seat to fill. And guess who wants it?

Caroline Kennedy and Fran Drescher.

Yup, Fran Drescher. Best know as the uber annoying Nanny.

Details here

Best quote so far (and something I stated myself before I read this), from a People Magazine poll: "Here's one way to prevent any filibusters: Fran Drescher's screechy voice."

Almost guaranteed that any motion she brings forward will be passed as fast as possible, just to shut her up.

Of course there is some other competition, but they are all boring so who cares.
