I love collections of cart art.

Someday, I will own this chair.

The internet/spam soapbox.

The buzz word generator. You may be clueless, but at least you can make everyone else feel clueless too.

America's Stupidest Home Cat Videos.

The Matrix, ascii style. (Someone had aalib and way too much time on their hands.)

I don't know about this one, but it would be amusing if it's true...

Why let Iraq and N. Korea have all the fun, when you can buy your own uranium, but you can't get flash powder for fireworks. That might hurt someone.

As a tangent, we have uranium in our house! Really! We have this antique salt bowl that is made of uranium glass. Basicly glass with uranium in it, giving it a day-glo yellow color. It glows so freakin' bright under a black light. This means the race is on. Will I die of cancer (radiation) or of high blood pressure and related problems (salt)? Taking bets now. :-)

Woo Hoo! I'm "Radioactive Man!"

I was reading about the uranium glass we have, and found this tid bit...

We all are living under varieties of naturally existing radiations on the earth.
Indeed, we ourselves have radioactive substances in our body.

For instance, a human body contains natural potassium, equivalent to about 0.2% of his body weight.
This natural potassium is a radioactive substance.
Therefore, if he weighs 50 kg, he has a radioactivity of about 3000 Bq.

In other words, his body has about 3000 emissions of corpuscular and electromagnetic radiations from potassium in a second, throughout his all life.

And that's not even taking into account Carbon-14.

Now if only I could glow in the dark. Now THAT would be cool.
