Randoms of the week

1. I think someone should start making knock-off computers that can run Mac OS, and work like Macs. But, they should call their company 'Citrus Computers' and call the items 'Oranges.' Then, when they get sued, their defense can be "You can't compare Apples to Oranges!"

2. I like these new shirts from Despair.com. (no consideration for the link. Didn't even win one in the release drawing.)

3. Citrus Computers could make mp3 players. Call them Tangerines.

4. This headline: Developing News: Data Shows Crime Down In Little Rock. Now, since Little Rock is north of us, I read this one way. But if I were in Fayetteville, I'm thinking "Don't go to Little Rock! There's crime down in Little Rock."

5. I like twitter, but this is funny:







6.Looks like the Senate may have to actually work a whole month. Poor dears. They need a raise. Or better, just send them a cookie. No, send them half a cookie, with a note that you have withheld taxes from it. If your Senator is wealthy, as defined by the media, which means making more than $50,000, or by the President, which means more than $250,000, then tax them at Jimmy Carter levels: 70%.

7. Or just be mean, get an oreo, lick out the filling, and mail them the outsides. They'll get an envelope full of black crumbs, hopefully to contemplate as the USPS asks for a bailout.

8. Did you know most major TV broadcasts are available with Spanish audio? They are. There is a little pop-up at the beginning of things like the NBA Finals that says "This broadcast available in Spanish. Push the SAP button on your remote." And it says it in ENGLISH! If you can read it in English, why do you need to hear it in Spanish? Shouldn't it print the pop-up in Spanish?

9. One more:

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, New York scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: "California archaeologists, finding traces of 200 year old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers."

One week later, The Coon Valley Journal, a local newspaper in Wisconsin, reported the following: After digging as deep as 30 feet in his pasture near Coon Valley, Wis., Ole Olson, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Wisconsin had already gone wireless.
