Did you know
that the number 10 does not appear anywhere on a dime? I find that very strange.

ABCNews confronts editing crisis?
From Earth Summit Confronts Global Water Crisis
Earth Summit delegates on Wednesday tackled ways to quench the planet's growing thirst and provide sanitation to billions of the world's poor who do without either every day.

Doing without the planet's thirst every day. A tragedy, indeed.

Hot potato
Pink has apparently started watching Martha Stewart again. It's only a matter of time before we're all neck deep in embroidered monitor cozies.

As long as he's volunteering to start a Hints from Pink column, I have some followup questions. I thought the raw potato trick was supposed to be used if the glass actually broke, not if the glass just separated from its metal thread thingy. Does the raw potato actually grip better than the pliers would have? It would be nice to avoid the electrician next time, but it would also be nice to not have to explain why the ceiling and light fixture are liberally coated in bits of potato.

I had a piece of broccoli burn the holy hell out of the roof of my mouth today. Just goes to show that veggies can be hazardous to your health. Where are the Surgeon General's warnings when you need them?

Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.
Personally, I thought Dave's movie quotes quiz was a lot easier than Ben's. I got 12/20 on the former all on my own, whereas Dave and I working together could only manage 3/20 of Ben's.

More importantly, neither quiz included a quote from this movie...

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.
Hit it.
