Tomorrow is one of the most important US elections in a long time, where the american people get to decide if they still want a christian fundamentalist warmonger as their president. In the spirit of the times here’s a video clip showing Mr. Bush doing what he likes the best – giving the world a one finger victory salute. Let’s hope the voters return the gesture tomorrow…

This Tuesday the BBC Radio 4 started sending the new episodes of the great Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy radio plays by Douglas Adams. In keeping with the spirit of the original, these new series are called the Tertiary, Quadrenary and Quintessential phases, and starts with the book Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Since the first two series were broadcast twenty-five years ago, this is something fans of Douglas Adams’ science fiction have been waiting a long time for! You can listen online here, but be warned – each episode is only available for seven days after the repeat…

There’s a new story on Fray entitled The Worm Within. It’s a very funny, and quite enlightening (in a gross kind of way) tale about a special kind of bowel movement…

The humourous illustrations are also great. I guess no matter how “civilized” or “urban” humans become, nature’s parasites will always find a way to get inside.

Tomorrow is April Fools Day, and for some inspiration, here are a few pages from the excellent Snopes web site. First, a little background history, and as always it’s well researched and an interesting read. Then there’s a listing of some of the more memorable pranks throughout the years.

It’s pretty easy to fall for an April Fools joke if you are unprepared; last year I was almost fooled into thinking that Bob Dylan was playing at a seedy dive in Lillestrøm.
