I would think that this is the scariest costume you could get if you are trying to scare prepubescent boys.

Arabic-style writing prompts flight cancellation
MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (AP) — Midwest Airlines canceled a flight ready to take off for San Francisco after a passenger found Arabic-style handwriting in the company’s in-flight magazine and alerted the crew.
The plane, carrying 118 passengers and five crew members, had already pulled away from the gate at Mitchell International Airport Sunday evening. It returned to the gate, the passengers got off, security authorities were notified, all luggage was checked and the aircraft was inspected. Nothing was found.
The passengers were put up in nearby hotels and booked on a Monday morning flight.
The writing was in Farsi, the language used in Iran, said airline spokeswoman Carol Skornicka. She said she didn’t know exactly what the writing said but was similar to a prayer, “something of a contemplative nature.”
Please tell me this isn’t real. Please tell me that they didn’t cancel a fucking flight because somebody found a sentence written in Arabic.
There was a problem coming up when someone tried to post a comment and would receive an error message. (The message said “error occurred”. Gee, thanks for the helpful message Movable Type)
I think something happened with Blacklist because I fiddled around with it and the comments are working again. Sorry if you left one and got that problem. Thanks Radmila for pointing it out to me.
Just try to tell me that this book won’t win a Pulitzer. I linked to the Amazon site so be sure to check out the reviews. If you check out the related links there is one on how to attracte asian women also.
What a silly concept. If you have to buy a book to date a woman (nevermind a woman of a specific race) then you are trying way too hard. (At least that is what it says in my copy of How to Give Dating Advice for Dummies)
This must have been a pain to load.
A peculiar name for a weapon, but it is derived from the splayed shape of the webbed foot of a duck, in some cases the term is very accurately descriptive.
The principle behind this type of pistol is one of confrontation by one person against a group. Hence it was popular among bank guards, prison warders and sea captains. The threat being that one volley can kill several men.

From BBC News:
Police and academics in Cambridge are trying to find a graffiti artist who could be Britain’s brightest vandal.
The artist spray-painted part of a chemical component of DNA on the road outside a lab where the double helix was unveiled 50 years ago.
Atop the design – described by one academic as “really nice” work – the artist wrote the word “phospholipase”.
Some suspect it to be the work of a chemistry student on the way home after a night of post-exam celebration.
Some very good anti Bush posters at the Partisan Project.
With one of the most important presidential elections in our country’s history fast approaching, we have created Partisan Project, a group of designers and artists using their time and talent to help bring about change.
I really hope this blogger comes back. I have read every single one of his posts and they are always good albeit bitter.
I really have no opinion on this list since I am not even going to pretend that I know anything about art.
