Cage, Presley to End Three-Month Marriage
Surprise. 'Presley said; "I'm sad about this but we shouldn't have been married in the first place. It was a big mistake," she said in a statement.' Not for Nick, who can say for the rest of his life that he maried the daughter of the King. Like if one of those StarWars geeks that Triumph mocked ended up marrying George Lucas' daughter.

Places the United States has bombed. Um. Just in case it comes up the next time you play Trivial Pursuit.

Stupid: Chips Target Urban Snackers
Those silly white maketing people and their little ideas. Gosh! Although actually, it'll probably work. Ok. I'm stupid.

Cool movie stills from the aptly named

Happy Thanksgiving. Don't eat too, too much.

Rented Brotherhood of the Wolf which was a lot better than I'd expected. Quiet night, nothing else going on, except maybe eagerly anticipating the vast amounts of food to be consumed soon.

How mushrooms will save the world
Cleaning up toxic spills, stopping poison-gas attacks, and curing deadly diseases. You think of something else when you first read that headline, though. Heh.

Saw Die Another Day on Friday. It says a lot that the best thing to say about it is that it's not the worst Bond movie ever. Better than the last 2, not better than Goldeneye. I was trying to think who would be a good next Bond after Pierce Brosnan is done, but I couldn't come up with anything. Rupert Everett? Too gay. Orlando Hudson? Too young, and stuck with an iconic role in LOTR. Jeremy Northam? Depends on his ability to be an action star.

David and I were wondering how they make the yellow first-down stripe on football telecasts work. The Answer Geek has the explanation.

"Not a future in PR" award: Garrison Hearst, SF 49er running back, on what he thinks about gay athletes in the NFL. He later apologized.

Clear cold nights are good for thinking (and driving). It occurred to me that one of the signs of maturity is the ability to be genuinely happy for others when good things happen for them. Not that I wasn't happy for people before, it's just that so often I'm very selfish with my concerns, like with my future, that sometimes I only half-listen to other people when they're sharing. What is good is that I think I do this less than before. So those of you who I talk to have nothing to worry about.
