When I was 15, I went to Japan for one year as an exchange student. I was the lone American in a school of 5,000 Japanese, and I quickly acquired one habit that has since driven every girlfriend and teacher of mine absolutely nuts: pen tricks.
The Museum of Hoaxes has a great post of bizarre experiments including Milgram, the effects of LSD on elephants and the vomit drinking doctor.

August 28, 2007 (Computerworld) — Apple Inc.’s share of the laptop market is growing — the company now sells more than one in every six laptops purchased in the U.S., a research firm said today.
“Apple’s definitely up,” said Stephen Baker, an analyst at Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD Group Inc. “Their sales are continuing to grow faster than the rest of the marketplace.”
NPD, which collects its data primarily from retail sources and excludes most online and all direct sales, said Apple’s MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops accounted for 17.6% of June’s unit sales, an uptick of more than three percentage points from May’s 14.3%.
Baker attributed the jump in market share to refreshes that both laptop lines recently received. The lower-priced MacBook was updated in mid-May with faster processors and more memory, while 15-in. models of the high-end MacBook Pro were outfitted with new backlit LED screens in early June.
The market share increase pushed Apple past Gateway Inc. into third place on NPD’s list of laptop sales leaders, behind Hewlett-Packard Co. and Toshiba Corp. Research firm IDC also has Apple in the third spot; data it released last month put Apple’s share of U.S. sales at 5.6%, far behind leaders HP (28.4%) and Dell (23.6%) but tied with Gateway.
Saturday May 26th the VNN Vanguard Nazi/KKK group attempted to host a hate rally to try to take advantage of the brutal murder of a white couple for media and recruitment purposes. http://www.volunteertv.com/special
Unfortunately for them the 100th ARA (Anti Racist Action) clown block came and handed them their asses by making them appear like the asses they were.
Alex Linder the founder of VNN and the lead organizer of the rally kicked off events by rushing the clowns in a fit of rage, and was promptly arrested by 4 Knoxville police officers who dropped him to the ground when he resisted and dragged him off past the red shiny shoes of the clowns. http://www.volunteertv.com/home/headlines/7704982.html
â€œWhite Power!â€ the Naziâ€™s shouted, â€œWhite Flour?â€ the clowns yelled back running in circles throwing flour in the air and raising separate letters which spelt â€œWhite Flourâ€.
â€œWhite Power!â€ the Naziâ€™s angrily shouted once more, â€œWhite flowers?â€ the clowns cheers and threw white flowers in the air and danced about merrily.
