`Pterosaurs (ter’?·sôrs) are flying reptiles with leathery or membranous wings attached to the sides of their bodies and supported by an elongated fourth digit on their forelimbs. They were created by the Lord on the fifth day of His Creation Week (Genesis 1:20-22) and were a constant presence in the skies over Eden, where they peacefully ate fruit and plants. After the Fall, many of their descendants degenerated to a carnivorous diet and became feared by man, although non-wicked specimens preserved on the Ark helped to temper this degenerative tendency after the Flood. Various Pterosaur kinds were common throughout Eurasia and Northern Africa up until the early Middle Ages and interacted extensively with Man. Today, although Evolutionists falsely insist that they are extinct, pterosaurs can still be found, hidden away in the unexplored wilds of our world.’

`We’re not just offering you a tiny, 1 acre parcel of land on the Moon, Mars or any other boring planet like some companies.
No, we’re giving you free and clear, legal title to a full square mile piece of Uranus!
Included in your deed are the full mining rights so you can penetrate deep inside your piece of Uranus.
If you’re worried about the population explosion on Uranus and don’t want to buy a piece of the surface of Uranus you can have a ring around Uranus or even a big bright moon!’
All you need is some sticky tape and super glue.
With pictures, not really safe for work.
`”Disneyland is fighting a California appeals court decision that its rollercoaster-like rides (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn Bobsleds, etc.) must adhere to the same safety standards as public buses and actual railroads. The court decision would require rollercoaster operators in California to use ‘utmost care and diligence’ as opposed to merely ‘reasonable care,’ which is the current standard. I’m not quite sure how ‘utmost care and diligence’ is compatible with rollercoasters at all.”‘
`A study of 100,000 pupils in 31 countries around the world has concluded that using computers makes kids dumb. Avoiding PCs in the classroom and at home improved the literacy and numeracy of the children studied. The UK’s Royal Economic Society finds no ground for the correlation that politicans make between IT use and education.’
I am a dingle berry, apparently.
`This web site provides browsers with images and information from one of the world’s largest collection of well-preserved, sectioned and stained brains of mammals. Viewers can see and download photographs of brains of over 100 different species of mammals (including humans) representing 17 mammalian orders.’

Usually I don’t much care for these videos of people on BMX’s or whatever, but this guy is pretty damn cool.
And I’m drunk.

`WebTracer is an project based on the intention to visualise the structure of the web. There are many applications that analyse websites for structural integrity and diagnostic purposes, but few reveal the visual structure that web hypertext creates. Webtracer represents this structure as a three dimensional molecular diagram, with pages as nodes(atoms) and links as the strings(atomic forces) that connect those nodes together.’
It didn’t work for me, something wrong with my GL drivers. [shrug] But the demo graphics look cool.
`This part of the site is mainly a collection of Japanese pornographic magazine covers.
They have not been altered or edited in any way by me. This is how they were really published.
Take the image on the right for example. It’s obviously meant to say “Fresh Elegance”, but even that alone seems a bit strange.’
Not safe for work.

`Once upon a time, I was a coder not unlike yourself. My day consisted of coffee, perl and java hacking, meetings, and e-mail. I had a cubicle with fluorescent lighting, my own bookshelf and two computers. And I traded it all in.
Even before Office Space, white collar workers peered out the window (if they were so lucky) and imagined a more romantic life doing real work out under the sun.
Well, having no children, no great career ambition and no financial obligations more pressing than a crippling student loan, a year and a half ago, I decided to live this dream.
I became a bicycle messenger and now I’m here to report back.’
`The following may or may not be true, and is based on hearsay, rumor, and gossip–most of it from relatively reliable sources, some from more dubious ones, and some based on my own suppositions. I have tried to make this list as accurate as possible, but in some/many cases I wasn’t able to verify rumors. I have not put anything here that I know to be untrue.’

`The study, which has caught the attention of millions of Muslims worldwide, is based on in-depth interpretations of various verses in the Koran. It predicts that the US will be hit by a tsunami larger than that which recently struck southeast Asia.
“The tsunami waves are a minor rehearsal in comparison with what awaits the US in 2007,” the researcher concluded in his study. “The Holy Koran warns against the Omnipotent Allah’s force. A great sin will cause a huge flood in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.”‘
`The highest-ranking US general in Iraq authorised the use of interrogation techniques that included sleep manipulation, stress positions and the use of dogs to “exploit Arab fears” of them, it emerged today.
A memo signed by Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez authorised 29 interrogation techniques, including 12 that exceeded limits in the army’s own field manual and four that it admitted risked falling foul of international law, the Geneva conventions or accepted standards on the humane treatment of prisoners.
The memo, dated September 14 2003, also stated that the Iraq interrogation policy was modelled on the one used at Guantánamo Bay “but modified for applicability to a theater [sic] of war in which the Geneva conventions apply”.’
`Back when I was dating Asian Super Slut, we had a lot of great sex – great sex for me, I should say. ASS had been pleasing me for months, and I had been completely failing at taking care of her needs. Being the dutiful boyfriend, I thought it would be a nice gesture to somehow turn this around. As you all know, succeeding in getting a woman off is a difficult job. But let me be honest… it is especially difficult when your big toe is longer than your penis. I was smart enough to realize that it was folly to depend on Mr. Winky to get the job done, so I decided to try out my skills as a Cunning Linguist.’
`The parents of Terri Schiavo have authorized a conservative direct-mailing firm to sell a list of their financial supporters, making it likely that thousands of strangers moved by her plight will receive a steady stream of solicitations from anti-abortion and conservative groups.
“These compassionate pro-lifers donated toward Bob Schindler’s legal battle to keep Terri’s estranged husband from removing the feeding tube from Terri,” says a description of the list on the Web site of the firm, Response Unlimited, which is asking $150 a month for 6,000 names and $500 a month for 4,000 e-mail addresses of people who responded last month to an e-mail plea from Ms. Schiavo’s father. “These individuals are passionate about the way they value human life, adamantly oppose euthanasia and are pro-life in every sense of the word!”‘
`Here’s a note from your parents. It says, “Let’s play hide and seek for thirty-five years.”‘
`Michael Jackson has been crowned the US’s most foolish person for the third consecutive year, snatching the dishonour from the likes of President George W. Bush and society heiress Paris Hilton.
Eighty per cent of 1030 people who took part in an annual April Fool’s Day survey felt that Jackson, on trial for molesting a 13-year-old boy, deserved the top spot on this year’s list, which also featured his bra-popping sister Janet Jackson and convicted domestic diva Martha Stewart.’
