If you’re like me and enjoy your FireFox extensions a little too much and acquire too many after awhile, hopefully breaking up each tab into its own process (a la Google Chrome an supposedly IE 8, which i was unaware of) will make FireFox more stable and not have the whole browser crash due to one tab’s malfunction.
Apparently I haven’t checked the status in a while, because the excellent Sharpeworld has been back for a while. Time to hit some archives.
Harper’s Magazine has a handy dandy list of stats from the Bush era. If you’re a Bush fan please note that they’re not all related to the man, just the time-frame he was in office. For example: “Minimum amount that religious groups received in congressional earmarks from 2003 to 2006: $209,000,000″. See? There are assholes on both sides.

Unbelievably entertaining and terrifying:
LINK UPDATE AND NOW WORKING
I don’t normally get all political on this site, because frankly I’m pretty sure nobody cares what I think. Now, with the awesome GOP convention underway and political links flying about weblogs more freely than the previously awesome 2 girls 1 cup video did, I feel the need to post a CBS News link that runs down some of the ridiculous crap spewed forth by the absolutely horrifying to me in every way Sarah Palin. Seriously, I can’t believe they found someone whose moral, religious and political views are my exact opposite, and for that I guess I give McCain’s team some kudos. Still, come on, they’re both fucking retarded fear mongers that will possibly open up the gates of Hell if elected, how can this not be seen?
Ok, maybe not the gates of Hell. But they both make me throw up a little in my mouth.
Can you guess the accent? My terrible score of 28 says that I myself can not.
The website On This Very Spot gives you some ideas of places to visit, if pop culture is your thing.
Strange Maps is one of those sites that might have been posted here before, I honestly can’t remember. It’s easier to just repost sometimes than to bother looking something up, right? Anyways, their latest post, Niam Niam: the Cannibal Map of the World provides the quality reading I’ve come to love.
In anticipation of the latest movie, take a gander at Batman through the years.
The Titanic wasn’t the only ocean liner lost at sea. Check out Lost Liners for more stories of giant ships that never made it back.
The article How True Are Horror Movies Based on Real-Life Events? is short but good.
I didn’t even know “hustler” was an actual term used as an arrest type. Thank you Atlanta PD Vice Department for setting things straight.
