There's a story over on Accordian Guy's website about some a thuggish moving company, named Quick Boys Moving (who seem to be neither quick, nor boys) threatening him over comments on a post about movers in Toronto his blog. I found it pretty amusing. I feel bad for Accordian Guy for all the flying bullcrap, and the inherent threat of Eastern European thugs, but the almost viral like spreading of this story across the web has to be doing more damage to Quick Boys Moving's reputation than one initial negative comment ever could do. Via Boing Boing. I found the whole "refresh your browser" thing especially funny.

Oh yeah, and Anthony also told me about the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Apparently, some good citizens of this country decided to take umbrage with the attempt by the Kansas State School Board's attempt to sneak 'intelligent design' (i.e. RELIGION) into the scientific curriculum, and have made attempt to get their creation myth, that the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world, put into the curriculum. Thus showing the inherent flaw in trying to staple 'revealed' 'knowledge' onto a scientific curriculum. Be sure and check out the inverse relation between the number of pirates in the world and global warming. A visit to kooksville has never been so funny. Or so full of wry parody and social commentary.

I thought you might appreciate this:
"For several years now, an Australian scientist named Cameron Jones (and a lot of other people) are applying fungus and molds to the playing surface of CD, specifically to play with the mold's audio properties. And you'd be surprised what it sounds like. Rather than muffling the audio, it adds echo, audio holes and glitching, all effects that people pay good money to achieve electronically."

Whoo hoo! Let's get us some religion in the schools. Also, I would like my Flying Spaghetti Monster with a side of meatballs, please.

Don't try to bait me on this Munkee Girl. Private schools are fine for religion. Or, god forbid, religion should be taught at home by parents. Not at school.

Ok, rant mode off.
