Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- I don't own a gun (yet) but I just have to say Mike Rowe's post on guns is awesome!

- Now I really want to try this booze

- Making sense of String Theory. The video is from 2005 - I wonder if the theory still holds up? Seems like all the cool kids are speaking about Quantum Physics these days.

- Fantastic true story of an American  fugitive drug smuggler who became an environmental hero in Australia

- 12 fun facts about Slap Shot. Thank God they went with Paul Newman and not Al Pacino.


  1. True story - the first time I saw Slap Shot was at a smoker for the Gamma Nu literary society (fraternity without a house) at Illinois College, along with Tangerine (XXX). I met a guy who used to frequent a restaurant in New York. He took a friend there one day and was surprised to find the doorman absent. He went inside to find Joanne Woodward telling him it had been reserved for a private birthday party for Paul Newman. He was invited to stay.

  2. Also, Mike Rowe is a national treasure.
