  • Also, 67% refer to their friends as "dude."
  • Really. Honest. I didn't make up either of those numbers.

Some clips from Madison
  • "'Madison' is a father-son action/drama based on the inspiring true story of the tiny river town of Madison, Indiana and its legendary efforts during the hydroplane racing season of 1971. In addition to the thrills of 180-mph flat-bottomed boat racing, the picture captures the spirit of a small American River town struggling to stay alive as water transportation has virtually disappeared."

This is truly bizarre: The Ultimate Warrior threatens to sue Something Awful. Keep reading the article. When the bogus legal threat doesn't get the desired response, the Warrior's director of communications tries to harass the father of Something Awful's webmaster.

"MORE than 300 grannies danced naked in the Mtlumuvi River to perform an ancient ritual that jeers at impotent men and is believed to kill rodents that destroy crops." It's good to know that you can exterminate pests and make fun of the impotent with a single ceremony. I've been paying for two separate rites.

Classes teach grannies to strip. This is a bold piece of social engineering from the administration, designed to aid in both pest control and the all-important need to ridicule the impotent.
