Random Friday Five
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.
