There's a Monster at the End of this Post

Post title stolen shamelessly from GutterNinja.

This has been one really odd week. While I'll let Hubby-Eric tell the tale over on his blog and maybe the boring blog if he chooses to do so... let me just say this has been a really really odd week.

Oh my. The Penny Arcade guys go up against Harlan Ellison. Language warning. But then, if you have any idea what Penny Arcade is, you already knew that. Via Tom.

The Museum of Hoaxes suspects that the killer dolphin story isn't exactly... true.

A laptop that costs only $100 and has a hand crank for back-up power. I want one. It looks rugged. I'd love to test one, and I'd gladly pay $100 for the honor of being a tester...

The Story of Bobby Martin, a football player born with no legs. Wow.

"We decided to give so much away simply because we’d rather our music was out there being listened to than not..." The Steadman band releases their music for free onto the 'net.

Former Education Secretary Bill Bennett made a ludicrous and incredibly racist comment. More compassionate conservatism for you.

Eyewitness accounts of the New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-1812, in the Mississippi valley.

And lastly, here's the monster. Thanks, Steve
