Misc.

Are you a Creationist? Sick of all those smug science-huggers laughing at you? Well, tell 'em to check this shit out. They'll be all like, "I now realize that my beliefs are not only misguided, but the work of the Devil," and you'll be all like, "In your face, evolution bitches!"

Speaking of credulous peasants, interesting tidbit from a Times Online story about morons who throw their money at frauds like Deepak Chopra:

Demi Moore hopes to live to a great age through his teachings. “Even 130 years isn’t impossible,” she says.

Dude, you're clearly terrified of getting old now. Do you really want 90 more years of misery? Although I guess by the time you hit 130, you won't look a day over 122. (Via the Advice Goddess, who I wish I could see in her new 1-minute spots on the Biography Channel.)

Items of clothing once worn by genderless wraith Clay Aiken soon will be on display in a museum. Is this acceptable?

And is it just me, or does Lindsay Lohan look like Frankie Muniz in a fright wig? And, well, with boobs?

I sure am glad the Seinfeld cast has come to an agreement over the royalties for DVDs of the show. It's like a weight has been lifted. Now we'll be able to watch it anytime we want, instead of having to wait 20 minutes for a rerun. And it's a victory for the forces of good, too! Jason Alexander explains:

"Well, the character of George is not a millstone around my neck but I had to turn to my former bosses and say, 'I'm not invested in the longevity of the show. The longevity of the show actually is a detriment to me right now. It keeps me from getting certain kind of work. You have not made me a participant in the life of this show, therefore I am not inclined to give you these services.'

"It took a while for them to understand. Frankly, I think they were well prepared to proceed without our services until the audience said, 'Don't do that.'

"I said to Jerry when he made the decision years ago to not let us in, 'The day will come when you regret this decision, only because it's going to put us in a position eventually of seemingly tainting the wonderful impression of what this was for the four of us.

"You have created a rift between you and the three of us, and while we are in no way, shape or form looking for parity with you, you have created a chasm that is also inappropriate,'" Alexander recalled.

Translation: "We live in a society!!!"

Did you know that an anagram for "Mel Gibson" is "Big Melons"? Also "Noble Gism" and "Bong Smile." But more to the point: "Glib Omens."
