Posted by on Thursday, January 23, 2003

The small animal called "Microraptor gui" -- in honor of Chinese paleontologist Gu Zhiwei -- was about 2 1/2 feet long and had feathers covering its legs that were similar to the feathers in its wings. The fossils were dated to 128 million years ago. ...

Before he figured out how to create actual flesh-and-blood creatures, God made some prototypes: mechanical cows and cats and dogs that were quite happy roaming the earth.
By the time the living, breathing models were perfected, God's robots weren't so eager to step aside.

Huh?! Boy Bands Take Techno Hit BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, January 09, 2003
Salon has an interview with Justin Timberlake of boy band *NSYNC, who complains that nobody has written a computer virus to honor his band, or his more recent solo career.

"Girl singers seem to get all of the attention from computer viruses," said Timberlake. "Britney has one, J-Lo has one, and now even Avril Lavigne has one that sends people to her Web site. I don't see any *NSYNC virus out there giving us free publicity."

The Virus Writers' Union released a statement denying their responsibility for this problem. "We aren't obligated to publicize any particular musicians, it's up to the individual virus writers, and right now our members do tend to be teenage boys. Anyway, *NSYNC is one of several bands mentioned in the GVW virus." (Via SlashNot.com)...

Michele's Breasts are in Your Hands! BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Thursday, January 09, 2003
Southern Cali college girl, Michele bemoans her "itty-bitty boobies" and asks the world to decide whether she should surgically acquire a set of bodacious ta-tas by donating to her online implant fund. So far the fund has swelled to only $19.36, hardly the push-up Michele was hoping for and pretty far from the $4500 she needs to get [more inside] her Wonderbra. But perhaps Mefites have a silicone dollop of charity left after the holiday season. Then again, maybe this isn't the breast, er umm, best way to spend your charity dollar.

Posted by on Tuesday, January 07, 2003
OGLETHORPE, GA-- Alex Dunn, 39, father of 15-year-old Drew, slipped into his son's bedroom for one more look at the liner notes to his Britney Spears album Monday. "Just like to see what my son's into these days," said Dunn, perusing the photo-packed booklet accompanying Spears' Oops!...I Did It Again for the fourth time in as many days. "I bet he'll put this on the moment he gets home from JROTC drill practice in an hour or so." Upon hearing a car pull into the driveway, Dunn, who has previously browsed the liner notes to his son's Mandy Moore and Christina Aguilera CDs, put the Spears disc back exactly where he found it and quickly left the room...

An Aussie Answer to 'The Two Towers' BAR-ENDER
Posted by on Tuesday, January 07, 2003
A kilometre-high solar tower, to be built in the Australian outback by EnviroMission Ltd, will become the world's tallest structure when completed in 2006. Designed by Jorg Schlaich of Schlaich Bergermann und Partner, the solar tower (or solar chimney) operates like a hydroelectric power plant, but uses hot air instead of water, and it could provide enough electricity for 200,000 homes. Time calls it one of the best inventions of 2002, and I think it's one of the most ingenious ideas I've ever heard. Another solar chimney project was planned in Rajasthan, India, but its current status is unknown.
