Religion is kinda like nuclear power: you split the atom this way, you get electricity; you split it that way, you get an atomic bomb.

But you have to post the property settlement on MySpace...

Islam's highest cleric in the "moderate" state of Dubai issued a fatwa yesterday permitting the country's Muslim men to divorce their wives through text messaging. The Grand Mufti Ahmed al-Haddad, in a written statement, said that phone SMS messaging was no different than written declarations of divorce. He also declared that religious authorities could judge the divorce over a mobile phone.

Islamic law only requires that a husband repeat the phrase "I divorce you" three times for a marriage to end.

Was the Death Star Attack an Inside Job?

As if conspiracy theorists don't have enough trouble with perceived reality...

...

How could any pilot shoot a missile into a 2 meter-wide exhaust port, let alone a pilot with no formal training, whose only claim to fame was his ability to "bullseye womprats" on Tatooine? This shot, according to one pilot, would be "impossible, even for a computer." Yet, according to additional evidence, the pilot who allegedly fired the missile turned off his targeting computer when he was supposedly firing the shot that destroyed the Death Star. Why have these discrepancies never been investigated, let alone explained?

...

The whole thing's here. Intriguing. Cough. Via the Sanity Inspector on the Usenet alt.quotations newsgroup.

Does Al Gore know about this?

Use the telephone company's juice to power select home appliances.

These guys are real telephone whizzes. I haven't tried the products on this page, but I know their more traditional stuff is truly spiffy.

It's based on Chernobyl-inspired technology. What could go wrong?

Gee, I wonder where they send the royalty checks?

Dear Amazon.com Customer,

We've noticed that customers who have expressed interest in books by James Boswell have also ordered The Works of Samuel Johnson, Volume 10 by Samuel Johnson. For this reason you might like to know that Samuel Johnson's newest book, The Works of Samuel Johnson, Volume 10, is now available in Paperback. You can order your copy for just $18.99 by following the link below.

-via fellow former computer columnist, role model, and old buddy Stan Kelly-Bootle, who enthusiastically adds, "I can't wait to get Samuel's LATEST."

So there.  
The kgb@kgb.com e-mail address is now something other than kgb@kgb.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 kgb@kgb.com as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that kgb@kgb.com was no longer kgb@kgb.com but rather kgbarkes@gmail.com which is longer than kgb@kgb.com and more letters to type than kgb@kgb.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than kgb@kgb.com but actually just as functional as kgb@kgb.com? I sent e-mails from the kgb@kgb.com address to just about everybody I knew who had used kgb@kgb.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the kgb@kgb.com change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which kgb@kgb.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for kgb@kgb.com would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that kgb@kgb.com no longer is the kgb@kgb.com they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. kgb@kgb.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
