"Porsche's Top 10 Pop Culture Moments"

As I usually find with such lists, they've got most of the right entries, but they're in the wrong order. #8 should absolutely be #1.

"15 Amazing Videos Of Soldiers Returning Home"

Simply great

They haven't actually tried this yet; it's still only a joke

But just wait.

"Social Security Reform Bill Encourages Americans To Live Faster, Die Younger". (By the Onion News Network. Short and funny.) 

"Pentagon's Craziest PowerPoint Slide Revealed"

Article is from last year, but if you haven't seen it, it's a beauty.

One's in Detroit.

Investment bloggers answer.

"18 Scientific Facts About What Annoys Us and Why"

"Introducing Annoying: The Science of What Bugs Us by NPR's Joe Palca and Science's Flora Lichtman. This brilliant book gives the physiological, psychological and neurological reasons why you get pissed off.

"Will all of this make the world less irritating? No, but you can have a smug and satisfied moment of peace while you read."



"Here's your first look at the new Beavis And Butt-head"

The Great Cornholio will be back. (NSFW, obviously.)

"Do It Yourself, or With the Help of Tinkerers Everywhere"

Yet another way the Internet is cool. New York Times, 4/23:

HANDS-ON kits offer great ways to learn about science and engineering. But the joys of making a small robot or a crystal radio set have long eluded those who can’t get past Step 2 in the instruction manual.

But now, even those without a wisp of natural geek in them may have a chance at success. That’s because Web-based instructions — often designed by hobbyists for other hobbyists — are now supplementing the often-confounding printed directions that come with such kits.
