He drafts 18-wheelers with the engine off and takes "death turns" at 52 miles an hour. Maybe I'm missing the point, but the king of the hypermilers seems more like an accident waiting to happen than a hero in the post 9/11 era.
"I'm not just doing this for myself," Wayne told me before we met. "I'm doing this for my country and the world."

Is it beatiful? No. Will it help prevent the spread of AIDS? Probably not. Is it cooler than Saturday's lunar eclipse? Absolutely (or, at least from our perspective).Link & blockquote via Pronto Condoms...

We pity the fool...Link via Vanity Fair...
I look over from the couch at the new 19-inch analog TFT-LCD flat-screen monitor delivering an 800-to-1 contrast ratio, 260 cd/m2 brightness, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 170/170-degree viewing angle, and a scanning frequency of 30–81 kHz horizontal and 56–75 Hz vertical, or so I'm told.

What I see are the green hills, blue sky, and stratocumulus and cirrus clouds of the Napa County bitmap landscape called Bliss, the Microsoft Windows XP default desktop wallpaper. It looks like an invitation to suicide on a Sunday afternoon.

This guy ate the world's hottest chile pepper and lived to tell about it?! How hot could it be?
When Paul Bosland exhaled after taking a bite of the world’s hottest chile pepper, it felt like he was breathing fire.

“Got milk?” he thought.

Bhut Jolokia, the world’s hottest chile pepper The next thing Bosland thought, after gulping down a soda, was, “That chile has got to be some kind of record.”

He was right.

In fall of 2006, the Guinness Book of Records confirmed that New Mexico State University Regent’s Professor Paul Bosland had indeed discovered the world’s hottest chile pepper, Bhut Jolokia.

Bhut Jolokia, at 1,001,304 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), is nearly twice as hot as Red Savina, the chile pepper variety it replaces as the world’s hottest. A New Mexico green chile contains about 1,500 SHUs and an average jalapeno measures at about 10,000 SHUs.

I'm sure I wasn't the first to think of it, but I'd like to go on record saying that sometime during our screening of An Inconvient Truth I leaned over to Terry and said in so many words, you mean to tell me there isn't someone out there who can come up with some idea to rid the atmosphere of these gases (a.k.a. Mega Maid)? Link via Virgin Earth.
"Up until now, what has not been asked seriously on a systematic basis is, is there some way that some of that extra carbon dioxide may be scavenged effectively out of the atmosphere? And no one knows the answer to that," Gore said.

Who needs a flux capacitor anyway? Link & blockquote via NY Times...
Missed Connections was created in 2000 after Craigslist employees noticed "I saw you" messages popping up in the personals section. The name of the category was chosen as a transportation metaphor. "Our motivation is simply that this is something that happened to all of us," said Craig Newmark, an Internet pioneer who started Craigslist in San Francisco.
