Barbie's Dream Locker Room

Iowa has painted the visitor's locker room a pepto bismol shade of pink. Even the urinals are pink. Not sure if that really affects teams, but it's still funny.

My First Greasemonkey Script

Mediocre Employees are the Worst

Quote from my project management course: "Mediocre employees are the worst... Never hire mediocre people because they're not bad enough to get fired, not good enough to get promoted and nobody's going to hire them away from you so you're stuck with them forever."

Do they know it's Hallowe'en?

Awesome.
BOO! This fall’s sweetest – and scariest – benefit song is DO THEY KNOW IT’S HALLOWE’EN. This single features a star-studded ensemble known as the NORTH AMERICAN HALLOWEEN PREVENTION INITIATIVE. Both a trick and a treat, this song is a satire - as well as a charity-benefit song with all proceeds being donated to UNICEF.

An epic journey into the pulsating heart of fear, this song is a call-to-arms featuring:
Beck
Sum 41
The Arcade Fire
Sonic Youth
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Sloan
Peaches
Feist
Devendra Banhart
Wolf Parade
Postal Service
Buck 65
Comedian David Cross
Sex Pistols’ founder Malcolm McLaren
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
60s soul legend Gino Washington
Psychedelic singer Roky Erickson
Los Angeles 70s group Sparks
Inuit throat singer, Tagaq (a frequent collaborator with Björk)
AND MANY MORE!

Freaky new bikes

Revolutionary Venom Line Being Developed by Specialized

These look like something out of "Akira". I want the Viper, which features a hubless rear wheel that floats in a magnetic suspension field. Really!
