Citations, sites, quotas and stuff that seem to be non-neglecteble. A more non-conform way to spy on the trends and the world.
Finibus Bonorum et Malorum is a work from Cicero. Chunks of this is a part of the Lorem ipsum - the dummytexts that is used in almost every sketch that creatives in advertising use.


Trouble for the Tidy Bowl man

Southpinellas: You'd better take an extra check next time you go on the loo. Shannon Scavotto found a rock python about six feet long in his toilet-bowl. And catched it himself since noone else seem to bother. "He called the maintenance department for his building on 4th Avenue S, and they said someone would be right over. He called animal control, but its snake expert was on vacation. He called a snake rescue, but they wanted $150.".

Women tore the testicle when refused to get banged "She grabbed him by the genitals, tearing off his left testicle, then hid it in her mouth before a friend of Jones handed it back to him saying 'that's yours.'"

Art Night to Kill Dumb Sex Law To get around the sexlaws of Idaho the strip-club Erotic City in Boise have come up with a creative idea. For fifteen greens the public get a sketchpaper, a pen and then they are invited to paint the nude dancers.

"We have a lot of people drawing some very good pictures," said Erotic City owner Chris Teague, who has posted many of the drawings around the club..

Chris Teague's stunt is totally demolish the law since the art nights is worse on nudity than before: the girls is without their g-strings.


Nudity in Bangkok... what's new with that? "Executives of St Herb Co., which makes the 'breast beautifying' cream, said they laid on the stunt merely to counter suggestions their advertising claims were exaggerated." The Nation said Ying, one of the models, was embarrassed at having to bare herself in front of the cameras, but did believe her breasts had become firmer and the gap between them smaller as a result of the treatment.

Everything for the dough. Ying got her yang in Mr Greenbuck.

And it goes on: the company will massage 60 year old chics in public to: Senior Journal. But the Thai authorities is making statement - MCOT:TNA English News: the ministry would campaign for women to engage in exercise aimed at enhancing their breasts in order to counter the popularity of breast enhancement cream.

Halle Barry is cool

Boing Boing: "Berry was named worst actress of 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in "Catwoman" and she showed up to accept her "Razzie" carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for "Monster's Ball."

"They can't take this away from me, it's got my name on it!" she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.

She thanked everyone involved in "Catwoman," a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.

"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

Macintosh Creator Raskin Dies at 61

Macintosh Creator Raskin Dies at 61: "Jef Raskin, a computer interface expert who conceived Apple Computer Inc.'s groundbreaking Macintosh computer but left the company before it came to market, has died. He was 61.

In 1979, Raskin had a different idea: A computer that's priced affordably, targeted at consumers and extremely easy to use. A small team, under his command, was put together at Apple to pursue his concept that would eventually become the Macintosh.

"His role on the Macintosh was the initiator of the project, so it wouldn't be here if it weren't for him," said Andy Hertzfeld, an early Mac team member.

Raskin, who worked as a computer science professor before joining Apple, was well aware of the research being done in computer interfaces at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center. He worked to bring it to the attention of Apple executives.

Raskin also named the Macintosh after his favorite apple, though the name was slightly changed because of a trademark issue with another company.

Raskin led the project until the summer of 1981, when he had a falling out with Steve Jobs, Apple's co-founder. He left the company entirely the following year.

After leaving Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple, Raskin founded another computer company, Information Appliance, and designed another computer that incorporated his ideas. He also wrote a book, "The Humane Interface," which was published in 2000.

He was an accomplished archer, target shooter and occasional race car driver, friends said."


Email spoofing

Exploding Cigar: The fictive William Wyndell a k a David Earthman have used e-mail to spoof people and then collected the emails in a book. (E-mails from Hell). "Not professional enough? What are you talking about? You haven’t even seen me put my sales skills to use. You could ask my old boss. The only reason I am not there now is because he and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on certain issues and we got into a fistfight. Then he was saying something like “you are the best salesman I have ever had, but you are a jerk”, or something like that…I don’t know. I wasn’t really paying attention. I was busy kicking his ass. Point is, I’ll sell loads of those stupid vitamins. What do you say, boss?"


First image on the Web?

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Back in 1992, after their show at the CERN Hadronic Festival, my colleague Tim Berners-Lee asked me for a few scanned photos of "the CERN girls" to publish them on some sort of information system he had just invented, called the "World Wide Web". I had only a vague idea of what that was, but I scanned some photos on my Mac and FTPed them to Tim's now famous "". How was I to know that I was passing an historical milestone, as the one above was the first picture ever to be clicked on in a web browser!"

Victims of Google

The Guardian: "'The support to the academic and student communities from the qualified subject librarians, whatever its contribution to the teaching and research roles of the institution, is hard to justify in value-for-money terms at a time when the process of literature searches is substantially deskilled by online bibliographical resources.'"

The librarians at Bangor, the University of Wales are getting sacked since the students aren't in need of them. Says the leaders of Bangor. The librarians thinks otherwise... Rationalization the Googleway? (via mymarkup)

Collctors items

Mainichi: "The 56-year-old man had been living in the second floor apartment since 1981, and had apparently been keeping newspapers and magazines there since he moved in. Officers cleared the magazines into 50-centimeter high piles that stretched some 30-meters wide."

DVD menus are the work of the devil

The Shape of Days: DVDs are like bad waiters. Disc goes in: "Soup or salad?" "Salad." "Ranch or vinegrette?" "Vinegrette." "Raspberry or balsalmic?" Put some green stuff in a bowl, drizzle on some tangy stuff, and bring me the results!

Bosses Too Stupid to Live

The Dali Grind: This guy probably suffers from a rare psychological disturbance called "womanphobia". And gets really discriminated because of this by the woman on the labor-agency.

Forbidden: pix of Tour de Eiffel at nighttime

Fast Company Now: "no longer legal to publish current photographs of the Eiffel Tower at night without permission. Technically, this applies even to amateurs. When I spoke to the Director of Documentation for SNTE, Stéphane Dieu, via phone last week, he assured me that SNTE wasn't interested in prohibiting the publication of amateur photography on personal Web sites. 'It is really just a way to manage commercial use of the image, so that it isn't used in ways we don't approve,' said Mr. Dieu." (via verybigblog)

Qoack Qoack!

A forbidden image. Architechural porn.

Teens fined for handing out cookies

Exploding Cigar: "Two teen girls in Colorado been fined almost $900 for baking and delivering cookies to their neighbors last summer. One woman they took cookies to was so terrified by the knocks on her door around 10:30 pm that she went to the hospital after suffering an anxiety attack. The families of the girls offered to pay the woman's medical bills but she sued instead. Court records contained a half-dozen letters from neighbors who said they enjoyed the unexpected treats."

MSN Search launches with cruel joke about Boing Boing

Boing Boing: At the top of the results stack, MSN Search asked me -- "Were you looking for Bling Bling?" Why yes, as a matter of fact I am, and if you knew how small our checks were......Matthew Cox adds, "I thought I'd give the new MSN search a try and wanted to see what it would give me if I searched for the 'best web browser.' Discounting the sponsored sites, the first two returned links were to Mozilla/Firefox. IE didn't appear until #8."
And BB reader Jeff says,
I wanted to inform you that when you search for "worst browser" [with MSN Search], the first result is Internet Explorer.


Naked Lara Flynn Boyle Terrorizes (?) Airline Passengers

Defamer: "The always-reliable British tabloids are reporting that a nude, pill-popping Lara Flynn Boyle recently terrorized fellow passengers on a flight from L.A. to London, roaming the first-class cabin halfway through the trip, waking a man, and trying to get into bed with him as she told him to prepare for landing."

This things never happens to me when commuting on the bus everyday ;)
