    The Perfect Gift for the Crafty Computer Nerd Who Has Everything

    This Laptop Compubody Sock is designed to provide for privacy, warmth, and concentration in public spaces. I'm not sure about breathing. Perhaps there's another device under there for that. This is just one creative melding of homespun craft and technology wrought by Brooklyn-based artist Becky Stern, whose Body-Technology Interfaces project includes a collection of socially-aware, purposeful knitted technology "cozies."

    If This Doesn’t Convert Panti, Nothing Will

    For those of you needing a little spiritual sustenance in Panti's absence, this bit of nuttiness from Cher's 70s TV variety show has it all: Cher in one of her wackiest disco-era spandex looks, Dolly at her most gorgeous - looking literally angelic and playing God (?!) as she welcomes Cher to heaven in a spaceship! And there's really nothing like a Sistine Chapel reference to jazz up a George Harrison production number.

    According to smug US TV preacher Dublin is in "DIRE STRAITS"!!!

    People don't go to mass!!! And homosexuals are pushing their agenda!! "Dire straights" doesn't even begin to describe the terrible heathen state of Dublin!

    A US TV preacher was invited to Dublin by Fr Dave Mardsen of St John Vianney Parish in Artane. (Really? What the hell was Dave thinking?) and he has made a video report on the shocking state of Dublin Catholicism for his programme "The Vortex", where "lies and falsehoods are trapped and exposed!"

    He speaks to "two dozen" people on the streets of Dublin and is shocked to only find one who goes to mass every week "because he believes'. However, I am surprised at how many young people he finds that do go to mass semi-regularly, or every week because their parents insist. I'm shocked he found any!

    But it gets particularly hilarious around the 5:30 mark when he reports with a solemn tone, that Dublin is in the grip of the gay rights movement and it's agenda. They are planning a march for "so called gay marriage"! And there are stickers "all over the place promoting sodomy as a right"!

    When you WANT to see cock you will see cock EVERYWHERE

    This video has been popping up all over the internet today, because although it isn't very nice, the truth is that laughing at mentally disturbed people who seem at first glance to be completely sane - especially when their brand of religiously driven insanity has them condemning everyone else to eternal damnation - makes us feel better about ourselves. "I may be terrified of clowns" we think to ourselves, "but at least I don't see cocks everywhere!"

    Anyway, this seemingly-sane-at-first-glance and not-foaming-at-the-mouth nut (kind of like an American Jim Corr) who goes by the name of William Tapley, or to give him his full title. The Third Eagle of the Apocalypse (I'm not making this up) is convinced that Denver Airport in Colorado is full of sneaky phallic symbols and hidden cocks, and that these were put there deliberately as a sign of the apocalypse. He does! I am serious! And so is he. Very serious.

    Ha! Mr Giggles nearly gave her a bleedin' heart attack!

    This is just so nuts, but I shouldn't really laugh because this is how I feel about those Paul's Boutique jackets with the pink logo on the back.

    Obsession

    Here's a very short mini documentary about a 15 year old English guy (and I am going to go out on a limb here and say he's a gay) and his obsession with singer Katy Perry.

    My first thought was, "Katy Perry??" because I find her remarkably bland and uninteresting, but he's only 15, and each to their own and all that. 

    Although his obsession seems pretty all consuming - he even suggests he loves Ms Perry more than his family - he also seems to have a certain self-awarness about how nuts it is, and a sense of humour about it. I'm guessing this kind of obsession is filling a need of some sort - or is just an expression of an obsessive personality? - but that it's essentially harmless and he'll grow out of it. Right? Or should his parents be worried about the kid? Any psychologists/psychiatrists out there?

    Although I had my favourite stars when I was a teenager - Michael Jackson being my #1 - and spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about him, listening to him, reading about him, looking at him, wishing I was friends with him etc, it never came anywhere close to this. Though I guess I had friends who went through obsessive periods that nudged in this direction.

    It's actually worse, because at least black people were allowed have their own bars and restaurants

    I recently gave up smoking (again!) but I'm feeling pretty confident this time (fingers crossed!). Even though I've been slightly obsessing over smoking/not smoking I've resisted the urge to bore you all with it so I won't start now, but you should check out this nut. She just loves her cigarettes and she ain't gonna take all these smoking bans lyin' down. It's segregation and discrimination! At least black people had their own bars!

    She must be absolutely ragin' with New York, where this week the Mayor signed a new law that bans smoking in many public spaces, including parks, beaches and pedestrian plazas like Times Square.

    (thanks Lurl)

    Don't read Harry Potter!

    Don't! Seriously Kids. You'll end up practicing witchcraft, doing drugs, having sex, and getting a bad hair-cut. It's just not worth the risk! (and anyway, Dumbledore dies)

    And now a word from our foreign correspondent

    Our New York bureau chief has been quiet of late, but being snowed in has driven him back to his laptop:

    Angelo's New York Nelly News

    Gays in the Military a Threat to Wildlife

    When thousands of black birds fell from the sky on New Year's Eve in Arkansas, with no apparent cause of death initially visible, their wings had barely stopped flapping before the conspiracy nuts were speculating that the cause might be everything from secret military tests involving poison gas to UFOs or even the end of the world. The fact that a few weeks earlier thousands of fish had turned up dead in a nearby river only whipped the nuts up into further frenzy.

    But the prize for the most ludicrous bit of magical thinking has to go to Texas minister Cindy Jacobs, who managed to tie the demise of these unfortunate fowls to, of all things, the December repeal of the US military's Don't' Ask, Don't Tell ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the ranks. And the link? The policy was originally implemented in 1993 by then-president Bill Clinton, who before that was of course governor of what state? That's right, ARKANSAS! Spooky. And to make it even eerier, the birds fell near a town called Beebe, and the current governor of Arkansas is named Beebe, though how that connects to DADT is totally unclear to this atheist. But one thing is absolutely clear to Cindy: God is not happy, and He just might take out a few of his other creatures to demonstrate His displeasure: "It could be because we have said it's okay for people who commit these kinds of acts to be recognized in our military for the first time in our history, there is a potential that there is something that actually happened in the land where a hundred thousand drum fish died and also where these birds just fell out of the air."

    Now how can you argue with airtight logic like that? The scientific explanation of course, turns out to be much more prosaic: The birds, who have poor eyesight and rarely fly at night, were roused by celebratory fireworks and died after receiving blunt head trauma when they flew into trees, buildings and such. But scientists are still flummoxed about what killed the fish, so maybe it's really just the lesbians that God is angry about.
