Weekend link roundup

Some of silly and amusing little things that have caught my eye in the last week.

A man with no arms is fined for speeding in New Zealand. Says the police officer who stopped him, "Obviously driving at a speed like that, arms or not, you're just waiting for an accident." [via Boing Boing]

The Atheists of Silicon Valley have compiled over three hundred proofs of God's existence. I'm convinced.

Professional dominatrix Princess Natasha changes her Web site to protect young children searching for a cartoon. I just find it amusing to imagine the ten year-old girls trying to find their favorite heroine and instead discovering a world of whips and latex. [via]

Do you watch Lost? Wondering what the hell that map was on the blast doors? See for yourself.

Am I the only person who kinda wants to revel in the B-movie grossness of Slither?


  1. Logical proofs of God's existence are like logical proof's of Hamlet's existence. Both are dumb, and both miss the point that a fiction like rights or selfhood or God can do culturally useful work even if it's acknowledged to be a fiction at bottom. Sigh.

  2. I forgot another useful fiction--particulate electrons. Just try teaching high school chemistry without them!
