Links `n Stuff
Since the entire world seems to be against the U.S. I suggest that we begin a policy of Total World Domination to eventually create The United States Of Earth.
To consolidate our power base we need to start close to home, so why not Invade Canada first?
After a slow, determined and methodical campaign of conquest, we will finally be able to declare to the world that, "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" (Click the "Local Copy" link)
Who would win in a fight between Dubya and JoKe? Enquiring minds want to know.
To pretend you are Dubya and beat the living daylights out of John Kerry Go Here.
Have you ever wondered where the media, politicians and activists get the numbers for their statistics and why they are consistantly wrong? Well, if you have some time on your hands check out the The Glossary of Mathematical Mistakes.
It`s chock full of all kinds of cool info and links to un-boggle the mind.
When you visit weblog comments sections, do you ever get just a teensy bit jealous when some of the commenters show off by using cool HTML tags that you know nothing about? Now you can show them that you too, can be cool. Use the HTML Cheatsheet.
This next, and last link, has been on here before but I`ll put it up again because I like it. French Horns

Your glossary of math mistakes is now bookmarked - it's a classic. Do you have any idea how much time I spend on the phone every day trying to correct errors in mathematical reasoning? It ain't pretty.
Friday I was ready to confiscate someone's calculator...some people just shouldn't be allowed to create graphs or crunch numbers.

You like stats, here`s a good one from the same site.
A humorous Statistical Rash:
A) The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
B) On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
C) The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.
D) The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine, and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans
E) Conclusion: Eat & drink what you like. It's speaking English that kills you. - Author Unknown

Good stuff, joatmoaf. The Glossary is a howl. While I was reading it I was reminded of something Woody Allen once wrote: "More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly."

Another Statistical Rash:
An increase in ice cream sales is usually accompanied by an increase in burglary rates.
Conclusion: To decrease burglary, ban the sale of ice cream.
One that the Were-Penquins wrote a while back at Ott's:
Since 80% of all accidents occur in the home, your best bet for safety is to buy a home and never go there.

"JoKe"? I like that. But, how is it pronounced?
