Links of the Moment
"Obey Your" " Tested, Mother Approved." "Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a" The Advertising Slogan Generator is providing all my slogan needs! And if that wasn't cool enough, the Brunching Shuttlecocks' C.Y.B.O.R.G. (what would your acronym be, if you were a robot designed to cause mayhem?) has been upgraded to generate cool graphics like the one here to the right.

Quote and Review of the Moment
"The Turkish Enterprise's dress code has got to cause problems. The female personnel are forced to wear miniskirts that end four inches above the bottom of their asses, and when they turn around to work on the spray-painted cardboard computers, they have no secrets. I'm sure this leads to situations where the navigator loses his concentration and says, 'Miss Uhura, we are crotching a course for the panties sector, coordinates your whole ass hanging out. Repeat: panties, panties, panties.'"
--This was some of what boingboing decided to excerpt for its link to a review of the Turkish Star Trek. The review was funny though it went on for a bit...but this damn "coordinates your whole ass hanging out" quote has been sticking in my brain.

Headline of the Moment
"The Bush administration is reminding potential attackers that nuclear retaliation is among the U.S. options." Pandora, your box is ready.

Quote of the Moment
"The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not."
--George Bernard Shaw. Dylan said about the same thing to me when I was having my "existential crisis", that I was fretting about the fate of the world while he was worrying over the current price of ground beef.
