Autistic basketball player creates mayhem at game (video)
Simply awesome. Hollywood definitely needs to make that kid's story into a movie.
"CBS ran an incredibly powerful story tonight that brings you to your feet and just keeps on giving each and every minute into it. Jason McElwain, an autistic high school basketball team member in Rochester NY, served as the coach's assistant and spirit leader for several years. On the final game of the season the coach let him finally put on a jersey with the rest of the team. Watch what happens then...
American Werewolf Academy Live in the Studio (TexasGigs Podcast) | texasgigs.com
Good band, the lead singer works with me.
American Werewolf Academy came into the TexasGigs.com studio last night...and they had the goodness in their hearts to bring beer! There's an interview, 2 songs from their new album, and Aaron serenades me with one of my all time favorites, "Goodnight My Pumpkin Pie." Oh yeah...and there's a special appearance from Tony's BlackBerry...which is sorta ironic...
World's largest Windows error message | NetworkWorld.com Community
"We went down to New York for the long weekend. Despite the 16-degree weather, we walked down to Times Square - all the bright lights lured us the ten blocks from our hotel. When we got there, we stood like, well, tourists, gaping at all the electronic billboards. And then, across the square, I saw it: the world's largest Windows error message - on a two-story high e-billboard (I guess everything really is bigger in New York). It was the only billboard in the entire square with absolutely no movement - since the PC running it had obviously frozen.
Lesbian refuses to take off t-shirt for school pic, everyone relieved
Heh. Too easy.
"A STUDENT being asked to remove a T-shirt with a lesbian slogan has sparked a protest at a school in Melbourne's northwest.
About 30 students at Strathmore Secondary College last week rallied behind Year 12 classmate Stephanie, 17, after she was told by teachers to change out of the T-shirt for school photos.
Stephanie, who did not want her surname published, said she had worn a T-shirt bearing the slogan 'Nobody knows I'm a lesbian' to school on several occasions without concerns being raised by staff or fellow students."Herald Sun: Lesbian T-shirt school storm [19feb06]
Holy crap, look at that dog. I love dogs, but that is a serious 'don't fuck with me' looking animal.
"How can you lose weight fast? Which sport burns more calories per hour than any other? Swimming? Jogging? Aerobics? In fact, it is none of these. The best sport for weight-loss, muscle tone and the cardio-vascular system is Running Away From Dogs. "(more parody at link)

Go down in the dungeon. Kill everything you meet. Backstab your friends and steal their stuff. Grab the treasure and run.
Admit it. You love it.
This award-winning card game, designed by Steve Jackson, captures the essence of the dungeon experience . . . with none of that stupid roleplaying stuff. You and your friends compete to kill monsters and grab magic items. And what magic items! Don the Horny Helmet and the Boots of Butt-Kicking. Wield the Staff of Napalm . . . or maybe the Chainsaw of Bloody Dismemberment. Start by slaughtering the Potted Plant and the Drooling Slime, and work your way up to the Plutonium Dragon . . .
And it's illustrated by John Kovalic! Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin can reduce any roleplaying group to hysteria. And, while they're laughing, you can steal their stuff.
Munchkin won the Origins award for Best Traditional Card Game of 2001!"
$30,000 Millionaires - It's not what you make...it's what you fake - Filming in Dallas Texas, Spring 2006
"Dallas is the L.A. of the south. Forget about cowboy hats and pick-up trucks. In Dallas, image is everything. $30,000 Millionares is a comedy about five guys (late-20s to mid-30s) who fake being rich, all for the sake of Dallas' pretentious image. More importantly, they exaggerate their incomes to impress and ultimately score with the city's most beautiful women."
List of people widely considered eccentric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eccentricity is necessarily defined relatively. For the purposes of this article, an eccentric is someone whose behaviour, beliefs and/or hobbies deviate in a significant way from the accepted norms of their society, but otherwise can function largely as normal in society. He or she may be regarded as strange, odd or at least unconventional, irregular and erratic. Other people may regard the eccentric with apprehension but also with amusement.
Sometimes eccentricity is clearly intentional. Some comedians behave in eccentric ways even off-stage for professional reasons—to maintain their funny public image. Some entertainers and artists like Salvador Dalí use eccentric lifestyle to draw attention to themselves and exploit the common perception that creativity and madness are closely related. Athletes may behave in aggressive ways because it is part of their image as "tough guys" and as a way to intimidate their opponents.
There are historical cases where an eccentric may have taken the mantle intentionally for religious reasons (Russian Yurodivy, for example) or used it as an unusual way to make a semblance of a living. Some of their contemporaries may have regarded them with religious devotion.
Other so-called "eccentrics" behave the way they do simply because they care little about societal pressures against their behavior. What other people think often does not matter to them.

This feature about Philip Dick's "Valis" experience was published in Weirdo comic #17 from summer, 1986.
It is an interesting graphic interpretation of a series of events which happened to Dick in March of 1974. He spent the remaining years of his life trying to figure out what happened in those fateful months.
You will find all 8 pages of this story here. The file sizes are rather large (120-140K each) so that the text was readable and the detail visible.
Enjoy The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick. In typical Dick fashion, you will find that it raises more questions than it answers.
