There's always room for funny....
The Onion, as usual, has all the best coverage....God Outdoes Terrorists Yet AgainGovernment Relief Workers Mosey In To Help
NEW ORLEANS—Federal Emergency Management Agency director Michael
Brown, leading a detachment of 7,500 relief workers, moseyed on down to
New Orleans Monday afternoon. "Well, I do declare, it's my job to see
if any of these poor folks need any old thing," Brown said from his
command rocker on the command post porch, adding, "Mighty hot day,
ain't it?" Follow-up teams of emergency relief workers are expected to
begin ambling into the Gulf Coast region as early as this weekend.
"They should be getting the trucks good and warmed up anytime now, and
they'll be cruising into town just as soon as all the reservists stroll
in," said Brown, who is currently at his desk awaiting offers of food,
water, and evacuation buses to roll in from "somewhere or other."

|The Deviant Geek|
You answered 79% of the questions as a geek truly would.
|You're a geek and you know it. You've got all sorts of fringe hobbies and socially unacceptable tendencies. Chances are, whenever possible, you hate to be grouped with other people and sometimes go out of your way just to be different. |
You're smart too. You're more willing to depend on your own brainpower to solve problems, instead of relying on others to pull you through life. You probably read a lot, and generally enjoy learning new things.
So what's it all mean? You may be considered by some to be uncool, but you probably don't care either. In social situations you may be either slightly passive or slightly loud (geeks always fall into the extremes). In a nutshell, you answered enough questions correctly supporting a geek philosophy to be considered a more potent geek than 60% of the population.
|My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:|
||You scored higher than 67% on geekness|

A must-see website
For all you Bible fans out there, and I know you're there - Back of the Bible
It's a quick look at some of the more obscure Old Testament books where... Well, the author describes it as:"For every chapter about Jesus wind-sprinting across a lake to tell you how much he loves kittens, there's another with God making a smoking peasant fireball because they sacrificed a goat to Him with the wrong knife."
It's that kind of tone. It actually reminds me a great deal of the old Seanbaby Superfriends website - same style to it. I laughed out loud several times, most of all at this line, describing God in the Book of Zephaniah (I didn't know there was
a Book of Zephaniah, did you?) where he threatens ance again to wipe out every living thing from the planet Earth:"In movies, the lunatic threatening to kill everybody because they don't love him enough is the guy Bruce Willis shoots a lot of times. In the Bible, it's the guy Bruce Willis prays to."
It's really, really funny. Go look.

First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day
January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carroll, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore. I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics. Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?
Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.
For consideration: this only works if you spread the word, of course, but three and a half weeks is forever in LJ Meme Time.
Spread the word.....

From William Gibson's weblog:Cyber-Claus
Quote: " In the night of 12/24/07, though sensors woven through the very fabric of the house had thus far registered a complete absence of sentient bio-activity, I found myself abruptly summoned from a rare, genuine and expensively induced examples of that most priceless of states, sleep."
