Random Facts

This is one of those vintage, oldie-but-goodie emails that have been circling the net for years, and I felt it was worth casting permanently in hardened blogcrete.

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

(I know some people like that too.)

All the news that's fit to search

Google will scan 200 years of news content from Time, NYT, Lexis-Nexus and others, and give users the option to buy full articles. I hope their scanner operators have carpal tunnel protection...

The Ultimate Blog Post

I think this writer at Wired Magazine hit the nail on the head in explaining exactly what a blog is. From the article: "Creating your own blog is about as easy as creating your own urine, and you're about as likely to find someone else interested in it."

Shameless Plug for Howard

My friend Howard has fallen in love with the Mac application Quicksilver, so much so that he's decided to take on the task of writing the documentation manual for it. See a an initial blog review of it here, along with a direct download of the manual here.

Oh, and why do I care?
Cuz a)he's a friend of mine, b)it's a very cool app, and c)my picture is on page 21.

You got chocolate in My bacon!

If you ever had an urge to mix chocolate and bacon for two great tastes that taste great together (?) here's a recipe.

Frankly, I think this would be a great accessory to the WAKE n' BACON, a fine product developed by Matty Sallin, a designer and cousin of my wife. Matty made many a headline and even a visit to the Today Show as a result of his somewhat unkosher timepiece.
