Rembrandt's Hidden Self-Portrait Sees Light of Day
I think it's funny that he's wearing a beret. Like he was saying to himself "I want to look cool for my self-portrait, I better wear my beret." Anyway.

On to the public service portion this post:
The Fully Informed Jury Association
Welcome to the official web site of the Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA). FIJA is a non-profit educational association whose mission is to inform all Americans about their rights, powers and responsibilities when serving as trial jurors.

I gotta drive down to Midway tomorrow to pick up a friend. It'll be a long drive back home right into the teeth of rush hour traffic. Woohaa.

This is totally disgusting. Don't trip and fall.

I'm helping out with a retreat this weekend. I hope to at least not infect everyone with my cold.

Pretty sweet Superman site, done by some dude who's working on the special edition DVD (which apparently will come out in April 2003).

The Race to Kill Kazaa
Sounds like something straight out of James Bond.

The transcript to last night's State of the impending Iraqui invasion address. And a link to the very first State of the Union, given by a different George.

Getting in touch with celebrities is fun! Especially Colin Farrell, cuz then you can ask him about this crap.

Time for BED. Sleepy NOW.
This is an old, OLD link, I think one of the first links my friends got email. Basically a bunch of engineers had a contest to see who could get their grill lit first, and it (d)evolved into a guy using liquid oxygen (i.e., rocket fuel). It's good to be testosterone.

National Geographic Swimsuit Issue
And it's not a parody. Business is slow in the magazine world, altho I doubt my former employer would go this route.

In self-defense against a man, kick him in the groin. Straight from the American Journal of Crap I Already Know.

I can't believe it, a mainstream article about a somewhat intelligent Christian authority that does not depict him as reactionary or pedophilic.

The best ad in the world: MJ vs. MJ. Go behind the scenes of the technology that made it happen.

As a public service announcement, I present to you The State of the Union Address Drinking Game.

I feel a cold coming on. And there's nothing I can do about it. Better bundle up tomorrow.

Don't name your kids this.

Dave Barry has a blog. Sweet.

For Homestar Runner fans, an interview with the creators. And for those that missed it, the Superbowl short.

Everybody likes watching the commercials more than watching the game nowadays:
- Incredible Hulk trailer (.mov file)
- Matrix Reloaded trailer

I thought I was supposed to view the men and women of our armed forces as heroes?

Bare facts on TV's Sneaker Streaker
Great Nike ad. You admire the dedication the guy has to his craft.

Don't have to go into the office until 2. Life is about the small victories.
