Forget about North Korea. Worry instead about the geek in the adjacent cubicle with a computer-controlled missile launcher (just connect it to an open USB port).

Or, you could just pour your latte in your lap...
This outfit claims caffeine helps prevent cancer and removes cellulite, but you have to admire their honesty: the intent was to introduce a legal consumer product with addictive qualities.
But does this stuff work? Some people swear by it, but I figure this guy has nailed it. Because of its low octanol:water partitioning constant, transdermal absorption isn't the best way to get caffeine into your bloodstream.
"In conclusion," he says, "until I see a double-blind study using this product, I will remain highly dubious that the effects felt by using caffeinated soap are anthing more than placebo and subconscious attempt to justify buying overpriced soap."

Signs you're getting old, #78
I was stopped at a traffic signal in South Park, the windows rolled down, my canine companion Beanie in the back seat, the stereo blasting the song "Out Tonight" from the musical Rent.
As I sat there pounding out the driving drum bridge on the steering wheel of my stylish 1995 Saturn station wagon, two young ladies, out on their afternoon constitutional, stopped and stared at me incredulously.
I performed the last four bars perfectly and raised my arms in triumph. As the song faded out, I heard one girl remark to the other, in a voice trembling with righteous indignation,
"That is just so wrong."
Sigh. And I was going to do "The Tango Maurenn" as an encore.

On a Mission from God...
The Sunday School teacher asked me to address her kindergarten glass, explain what I do for a living, and note the relationship between my career and the almighty.

The firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address is now something other than email@example.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used firstname.lastname@example.org as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that email@example.com was no longer firstname.lastname@example.org but rather email@example.com which is longer than firstname.lastname@example.org and more letters to type than email@example.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than firstname.lastname@example.org but actually just as functional as email@example.com? I sent e-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address to just about everybody I knew who had used email@example.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the firstname.lastname@example.org change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which email@example.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for firstname.lastname@example.org would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that email@example.com no longer is the firstname.lastname@example.org they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. email@example.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
