A remote tribe in the Brazilian jungle is now online after a charity gave them five battery-powered computers. The Guarani tribe has even come up with a word for the internet in their own language, "um-capa-al-gori", which means "mankind's gift from Al Gore".

Movie fans buying cheap pirate copies of new films could be helping fund al-Qaida, police warned today. I'm opposed to piracy, but this gets an award as the most astoundingly clueless article in history. The author seems to think that people download pirated internet movies in Pakistan, then smuggle hard copies of the CDs and DVDs into England to sell. Yeah, right. Well, call me crazy, but if I were going to sell pirated movies in England, I would simply download them in England, and therefore not have to worry about getting caught at the border with thousands of illegal CD's. Amazingly enough, the internet will also work in England! It's no wonder these guys can't catch the pirates. They have no idea how the whole thing works. (Now that I've had my rant, they may be right about pirated profits going to support criminals and terrorists. That, I don't know.)

World's biggest liar accused of cheating: In order to get into the lying contest, he lied on his application. Then he lied about whether he broke the rules. And the other guys are pissed. Which shows me that he has the least regard for the truth, and should be the winner. Unless, of course, he SAYS he should be the winner. (The Mudd's Robot Quandary)

Swedish authorities are warning of attacks from drunk and disorderly elks. Yeah, we have that same problem, although the Rotarians get even drunker than the Elks.

The World of Money Presents: Money of the World. Which country has the ugliest money? Sample comment: "Bolivia seems to have discovered a new way to stimulate the economy: make your money so ugly people can’t wait to spend it. This bill comes complete with a picture of a fellow who, no doubt, was once a dashing fellow of power and reknown, but now just looks like a greasy cabdriver who does the midnight-to-dawn shift because it lets him really pay attention to what the voices are saying."
