E-mail Harvesting by PalmOne

For those of you who want the latest English version of Palm Desktop for the Mac, and don’t want Palm to have your e-mail address, you can get the file from Conxion (11.8MB, SIT format).

I’ll also take this opportunity to note that there’s a great service called Mailinator that allows you to hand out temporary addresses for this sort of thing.


Thank you. We now return to your regularly scheduled blogging.

Dumbass of the Day

The honour goes to my friend Matt’s downstairs neighbour, who also gets the Insensitive Bastard of the Day, Daily Jailbird, Jackass Wifebeater of the Day, and Senseless Waste of Human Life of the Day awards.

Let’s hope a 380-pound inmate named Tyrone makes real good friends with this guy in the joint.

Lazy Bastards!

The crackhead who inspired this hilarious rant would be Dumbass of the Day, but he isn’t really stupid…just lazy.

However, the owner of the motorcycle that was victimised is a dumbass. His spark plugs got stolen, so he a) didn’t move the bike and therefore got a $35 street-sweeping ticket and b) had it towed to the dealer and then let the dealer install new spark plugs ($100 total).

A word to the not-so-wise: spark plugs, even for a Moto Guzzi, are only $5 or so each. Installing them is very very easy, and if you need a wrench, you can buy one for $10.

Hypocrisy 101

Setting: a man and his wife are sitting at the breakfast table in their residential bungalow.

MAN: I wish those bloody bells would stop.
WIFE: Oh, it’s quite nice dear. It’s Sunday. It’s the church!
MAN: What about us atheists? Why should we ‘ave to listen to that sectarian turmoil?
WIFE, interrupting: You’re a lapsed atheist, dead.
MAN: The principle’s the same. The Mohammedans don’t come ‘round ‘ere wavin’ bells at us. We don’t get Buddhists playing bagpipes in our bathroom, or Hindus harmonising in the hall. The Shintoists don’t come here shattering sheetglass in the shithouse, shouting slogans…
WIFE, interrupting again: All right, don’t practise your alliteration on me!

You’ve gotta be kidding me. I can understand the concern about noise, but the mosque is in a business district, and the church right across the street rings its bells five or more times a day already.

Woe to you, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth. So you also on the outside look richteous to others, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Matthew 23:27-28, NRSV

Flushable Art

Now you can take an artistic dump that everyone is sure to remember.

Double extra bonus points for anyone who manages to pull off an artistic Urinal Poop with a Turd Twister.

Dumbass of the Day

From yesterday’s AP news wire, and printed in my local paper:

Don’t apply to be a trooper while in a drunken stupor.

You’d think this would be common sense for most people. Not, apparently, for Robert Gulley.

Google News has been having some problems with images not matching up to headlines for the past few days. It was only a matter of time before something really amusing happened, and now it has:

Michael Jackson-Google News mixup

The only hang-up: I thought Jackson was only interested in five-year-old boys

2004 Muzzle Awards

Since 1992, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression has awarded its annual Muzzle Awards to individuals and groups in the United States who have committed the most heinous acts against our freedom of speech in the previous year.

The 2004 Muzzle Awards have just been announced. Their stories would be funny if they weren’t so frightening.

Coolest SUV Accessory Ever

I can’t wait to see someone put these on that Corvette monster truck I saw a couple of years ago down here in Tennessee. I really really really want to turn a big pickup truck into a half-track!
