The Mystery of the Green Menace | Absinthe
It's been celebrated as a muse and banned as a poison. Now an obsessed microbiologist has cracked the code for absinthe - and distilled his own.
Absinthe was first distilled in 1792 in Switzerland, where it was marketed as a medicinal elixir, a cure for stomach ailments. High concentrations of chlorophyll gave it a rich olive color. In the 19th century, people began turning to the minty drink less for pains of the stomach than for pains of the soul. Absinthe came to be associated with artists and Moulin Rouge bohemians. Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Van Gogh, and Picasso were devotees.
In 1874, the French sipped 700,000 liters of the stuff; by the turn of the century, consumption had shot up to 36 million liters, driven in part by a phylloxera infestation that had devastated the wine-grape harvest.

Calling in Sick | The Mother of All Excuses
An excuse for any occasion, check out the mother of all excuses place. Here are a few good ones to get you started.
17. I won't be in today or Ever Again. I've found a way to earn money by staying at home working on my puter. I'm tired of getting paid for punching a time clock, working my but off on a J.O.B (Just Over Broke) 9 to 5 and retiring with $ 0 in my bank account, forced to live of the Government and taxpayers. If you want to know what I'll be doing, send an email to: Cookie18@SmartBot.NET Hooray! Freedom at Last!
43. I was already at work for this and wanted to leave...Tell the boss I called home a few minutes ago and gotta go, my girlfriend went out to sunbathe naked in the back yard and locked herself out of the house and needs the door opened.
103. I work in a Medical office and have to open the place at 5:30 am. well, I overslept that morning (really overslept) and didn't get there until around 10:00 am. Well, the boss shows up at 8:00 am and I can imagine was wondering where I was for all this time. When he asked I replied..." I was here, you know how the copier is out again? Well, I was under the desk trying to fix it. I don't know how you couldn't see me, my legs were sticking out far enough to trip you." He replied," we'll have to call the repair man for that I cant have you under the desk for 4 hours!"

Getting Girl Gamers In The Game
News.com.com has an interesting article that talks about the lack of women in the game industry (both player and developer) and what is being done to change it.
Attendees see the women's game conference playing a key role in overcoming some of the historical hurdles to gender diversity in the industry. The conference "can get game designers and game houses thinking about the psychology of women in gaming, and to (think about the) subtle differences (necessary) to make games more palatable to everyone," said Rebecca Whitehead, the dean of academic affairs at the University of Advancing Technology.
Speaking of the Women’s Game Conference? Anyone catch that one lady talk about last week’s word of the day “teledildonics”?
Google Flight Search
Google is testing a new flight search feature that allows you to type in two separate cities or airport codes and get flight times and information between the two cities. Thank Mr. Alpert for the heads up.
Users can type in two different cities, or airport codes, in the Google search box to bring up two boxes for entering departing and returning flight dates. Below those are links to the travel Web sites Expedia, Hotwire and Orbitz. Clicking on one of those links leads directly to flight options for your selected itinerary on that site.
Is there anything Google can’t find? They need to come out with Google Home Search, you just type in common household items like “car keys” and it finds them for you. That’d be handy.

Apple Sued over Scratched iPod Nano Screens
A class action lawsuit has been launched against Apple Computer claiming the company's recently released diminutive iPod nano scratches too easily. The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in San Jose California, seeks to represent up to 125,000 iPod owners, says the law firm that launched the case.
The suit claims that the iPod nano is defectively designed, allowing the screen to quickly become scratched with normal use. The suit also claims that the excessive, rapid wear renders the device unusable. Apple executives responded to consumer complaints in September regarding excessive scratching and broken screens. Apple said that the screens on the iPod nano are made with the same material that is found in the company's fourth-generation iPod, which, to date, is complaint-free.
"The Nano is so small - People are putting this iPod in places where no iPod has been before" - MoPo Geek News
Prussian Blue Young Singers Spread Racist Hate
Duo Considered the Olsen Twins of the White Nationalist Movement. Thirteen-year-old twins Lamb and Lynx Gaede have one album out, another on the way, a music video, and lots of fans.
They may remind you of another famous pair of singers, the Olsen Twins, and the girls say they like that. But unlike the Olsens, who built a media empire on their fun-loving, squeaky-clean image, Lamb and Lynx are cultivating a much darker personna. They are white nationalists and use their talents to preach a message of hate.
Known as "Prussian Blue" — a nod to their German heritage and bright blue eyes — the girls from Bakersfield, Calif., have been performing songs about white nationalism before all-white crowds since they were nine.
"We're proud of being white, we want to keep being white," said Lynx. "We want our people to stay white … we don't want to just be, you know, a big muddle. We just want to preserve our race."
Lynx and Lamb have been nurtured on racist beliefs since birth by their mother April. "They need to have the background to understand why certain things are happening," said April, a stay-at-home mom who no longer lives with the twins' father. "I'm going to give them, give them my opinion just like any, any parent would."
History of the Swastika | Health Life Good Luck
The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. Until the Nazis used this symbol, the swastika was used by many cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.
Even in the early twentieth century, the swastika was still a symbol with positive connotations. For instance, the swastika was a common decoration that often adorned cigarette cases, postcards, coins, and buildings. During World War I, the swastika could even be found on the shoulder patches of the American 45th Division and on the Finnish air force until after World War II.
There is a great debate as to what the swastika means now. For 3,000 years, the swastika meant life and good luck. But because of the Nazis, it has also taken on a meaning of death and hate.
These conflicting meanings are causing problems in today's society. For Buddhists and Hindus, the swastika is a very religious symbol that is commonly used. Chirag Badlani shares a story about one time when he went to make some photocopies of some Hindu Gods for his temple. While standing in line to pay for the photocopies, some people behind him in line noticed that one of the pictures had a swastika. They called him a Nazi.
Unfortunately, the Nazis were so effective at their use of the swastika emblem, that many do not even know any other meaning for the swastika. Can there be two completely opposite meanings for one symbol? In ancient times, the direction of the swastika was interchangeable as can be seen on an ancient Chinese silk drawing.
Some cultures in the past had differentiated between the clockwise swastika and the counter-clockwise sauvastika. In these cultures the swastika symbolized health and life while the sauvastika took on a mystical meaning of bad-luck or misfortune.
But since the Nazis use of the swastika, some people are trying to differentiate the two meanings of the swastika by varying its direction - trying to make the clockwise, Nazi version of the swastika mean hate and death while the counter-clockwise version would hold the ancient meaning of the symbol, life and good-luck.

E-Waste Pictures | Chris Jordan
Exploring around our country’s shipping ports and industrial yards, where the accumulated detritus of our consumption is exposed to view like eroded layers in the Grand Canyon, I find evidence of a slow-motion apocalypse in progress.
I am appalled by these scenes, and yet also drawn into them with awe and fascination. The immense scale of our consumption can appear desolate, macabre, oddly comical and ironic, and even darkly beautiful; for me its consistent feature is a staggering complexity.
Rome Bans Goldfish Bowls
ROME has banned goldfish bowls, which animal rights activists said are cruel, and has made regular dog walking mandatory, the city council said.
Under a new by-law, round fish bowls were banned along with fish and other creatures being given away for fairground prizes. The moves came after a national law was passed to allow jail sentences for people who abandon cats or dogs.
The newspaper reported round bowls caused fish to go blind. No one at Rome council was available to confirm this was why they were banned however, many experts said round bowls provided insufficient oxygen for fish.

Apple iPod Video Delivers "iPorno"
It hasn't taken the adult industry long to figure out how to transform Apple's iPod Video into the iPorn Video.
Sites from the dark side of the Web are already rushing to buy QuickTime Pro licenses so they can create viral transmissions intended to pounce down the broadband pipe into Apple's new iPod Video media players.
The adult industry is huge. It's no secret that it was adult-oriented sites that helped drive demand and technological advance for the Internet itself. The industry is also not scared to experiment. Playboy's decision in December last year to release an image gallery of some its models for the iPod photo proves this.
The move by adult sites to embrace Apple's mass market product is one Apple's competitors can only envy. Provision of such content may well drive iPod Video demand even higher.
Baby Boy Named “Google”
A COUPLE in Sweden has named their new-born son "Google", reportedly because the baby's father is a search fan.
The healthy baby boy, born on September 12 this year, was christened "Google Kai" by his father who coincidentally, has a doctorate in search-engine marketing. According to father Walid Kai, a Ph.D. in search engine marketing from Kalmar in Sweden, the name came to him as soon as he found out his wife Carol was pregnant.
"When we first knew that my wife Carol is pregnant, I said, 'we will name our child Google,'" wrote Walid in an email to who else, but Google. "Everyone laughed and did not take me seriously. My brother said, 'Yeah, name the next one Yahoo Fuji Nikon."

History of Halloween - Trick or Treat
The American tradition of "trick-or-treating" probably dates back to the early All Souls' Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called "soul cakes" in return for their promise to pray for the family's dead relatives.
The tradition of dressing in costume for Halloween has both European and Celtic roots. Hundreds of years ago, winter was an uncertain and frightening time. Food supplies often ran low and, for the many people afraid of the dark, the short days of winter were full of constant worry.
On Halloween, when it was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought that they would encounter ghosts if they left their homes. On Halloween, to keep ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.

Hollywood Seeks Video iPod Residuals
Here we go again. It would seem that Hollywood has their collective hand out again, this time looking for video iPod residuals. Apparently the Writers Guild doesn’t feel the use of the current DVD residuals model should apply to the $1.99 an episode model Apple has in place because they do not get a big enough piece of the pie when all is said and done.
Writers Guild of America West President Patric Verrone was the latest to voice these fears, issuing a letter to members Friday that said WGA West and its sister guilds are unwilling to accept the DVD residuals formula, which takes most of the money off the table before sharing a set percentage of gross revenue.

Breast Implants may soon carry MP3 Players
Music may one day be very close to a woman's chest, with BT futurology which manufactures computer chips that store music, creating a MP3 player that can be implanted into a woman's breasts. While one breast could hold an MP3 player, the other the person's favourite music collection. BT Laboratories' analyst Ian Pearson said flexible plastic electronics would sit inside the breast. A signal would be relayed to headphones, while the device would be controlled by Bluetooth using a panel on the wrist.
The Pillsbury Doughboy Died Yesterday
It is with the saddest heart that I pass on the following news.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection, and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, who has a bun in the oven.
He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Buttersworth, Hungry Jack, The California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and Captain Crunch.
The grave site was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers.
He was not considered a very smart "cookie", wasting much of his dough on half-baked ideas. Despite being a little flaky at times he still, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes. In lieu of Flours,....just send a little dough

Camel Toads Scouting Toes at the Pool
I tried to look for camel toads in a drug book, and I didn't find them. Please let me know what camel toads are and how I might be able to tell if he is smoking taking or licking them. Is this something the local authorities need to be alerted to in order to protect other patrons at the pool or surrounding area?
The iced tea did a number on the toads, so my younger, hipper coworkers tell me. What he undoubtedly wrote was " camel toes," a crude euphemism for, well, extra tight pants worn by females. The Good news is that the expression has absolutely nothing to do with drugs.

Can Bloggers Strike It Rich?
When it comes to the profit potential of blogs, Nick Denton, founder of Gawker Media, calls himself a skeptic.
It's a surprisingly pessimistic perspective coming from the Brit who has launched a network of 13 theme blogs -- including Fleshbot (porn), Gawker and Defamer (gossip), Gizmodo (gadgets) and Wonkette (politics). His most popular properties (Defamer, Gizmodo and Gawker) report between 4 million and 6 million visits per month and millions more pageviews, he and his top talent have been featured in articles in the ink-and-pulp press (Wired, The New York Times Magazine) and Denton rarely misses an opportunity to trumpet ads on his sites for blue-chip companies like Absolut, Audi, Sony, Nike, Viacom, Disney and Condé Nast.

God Told Bush to Invade Iraq
President George W Bush told Palestinian ministers that God had told him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq - and create a Palestinian State, a new BBC series reveals.
Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'"
Abu Mazen was at the same meeting and recounts how President Bush told him: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."

It is probably an obvious statement to say that the main force behind piracy, has always been the search for wealth. Pirates were able to acquire amazing riches, and goods, through their campaigns.

The assets, of which the most noted, and often most prized were; gold and silver pieces, currency, jewelry, and precious stones. But the actual pirate booty, was acquired from looted merchant ships which usually included items such as linens, cloths, food, anchors, rope, and sometimes medical supplies. The cargo even included rare articles such as spices, sugar, indigo, and quinine.
