Urban Legends: The top shopping day of the year is ... the day after Thanksgiving.
  • Turns out this is FALSE.
  • (Fireworks explode. Mariachi music starts up. Guns fire in the air. Guys yell "eee-haw.") This is the first time I can remember Snopes having debunked anything that I formerly believed!
  • The correct answer, at least since 1995, is "the last Saturday before Christmas." There is one potential exception. When Christmas itself falls on a Sunday, the last Saturday before it obviously falls on Christmas Eve. That last happened in 1994, when the biggest shopping day was Friday the 23rd.

  • "People with nothing better to do on a Thanksgiving than to sit in the audience of a third-rate talk show"
  • "CBS keeps paying me even though I stopped trying around 1997"

Did the Pilgrims land on Plymouth Rock because they ran out of beer?

Mr. Miyagi waxes off ... 'Karate Kid' actor Morita dies, aged 73
  • His acting was memorable, but I think humankind will always remember his uncanny feat of having remained 73 years old for more than 30 years.

Great headline: "Crowe as mad as hell over temper claims." And if you claim he has a temper, he'll kick yer fokkin' arse!
  • The article also includes this fascinating tidbit: "At the AFI awards he will sing a duet with Marcia Hines. The pair will sing Testify, a song Crowe wrote about the phone-throwing incident."
  • I'd have to say, even without hearing it, that it must be the "Un bel di" of phone-throwing songs.
  • By the way, Russ, if you're reading the blog today, here's an August 2006 event you may want to sign up for in advance. You're welcome in advance.
