Random Friday Five

I'm very tired today, due largely to a late night spent beating people at games of Zombies!!! Corps(e) and Cthulhu500, but also due to a little reading of A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin before bed. So here are 5 random (and by random i mean selected for being the most interesting ones i saw today) links for you:

Time Magazine's 100 Influential People: interesting read, 100 blurbs, some written by non-journos. Mostly very well written, except for the J.J. Abrams blurb written by Tom Cruise - that one just made me want to throw up.

Madman on Kuro5hin who supposedly cured his asthma by deliberately infecting himself with african hookworm. Yummy. I may have to do some further investigation on this, because it's very Hulda Clark, but then again it might work.

Dumbasses get what they deserve when they discovered that 'train-surfing' is a bloody stupid idea.

The CIA's world factbook on South Africa. Search for your own country.

And the real names of celebrities, in case you were wondering. Go look at Chuck Norris for a surprise.

aside from flirting with the other diseases he's mentioned (like filharzia, and bilharzia - those are terrific), i don't see that he's that mad. i can certainly understand his desperation.

what frightens me is some of the responses he's received. i've never read so much paranoid, stupid crap before... it annoys me each time i see him having to repeat the same things he's said in the essay.

kills me. what we need to do is find a symbiote that will somehow make people (especially the americans, but i'm biased here) less dumb - or less able to communicate their level of stupidity. we need to find something that will literally shut their mouths!

and we need to remember to send this thing to the very highest level: imagine george w. only able to say "mmf mmmfff mmmff". it would be a better world.

now to paste this onto my blog :P
