Pitter patter
The article Ancient Human Footprints Found at Volcano lists an alternative headline: Ancient Human Footprints Reveal Traces of Short People in a Hurry.

My ancestors, from the sound of it.

You betcha
Actual betting opportunity found on
What will Saddams fate be by 06/30/03?
He will still be the president of Iraq(mantain control of Baghdad) +300
He will be a US Prisoner +175
He will be dead EV
He will be MIA +150
He will be a political exile +300
He will be Smoking Cubans with buddy boy Muammar Qadhafi +500
He will travel to Calcutta and take up Mother Theresa's Torch +15000
He will Join the Backstreet Boys and tour with Elton John +15000
Violent Aliens will arrive on earth and claim him as a citizen of planet Zerg +15000

(For those of you not in the know, a positive number indicates the amount you would win if you bet $100 and a negative number indicates the amount you would have to bet in order to win $100. I had to look it up. I still have the provincial view that odds should be expressed as a ratio. Silly me.)

My money's on the Zergians. Other lines allow you to bet on whether or not Elvis is alive, who the next Pope will be, and whether the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan will be subject to a terrorist attack within the next year.

Sign of the apocalypse?
Hooters Air: Every flight will feature two "Hooters Girls" in snug T-shirts and orange short-shorts who are there to "just be friendly"
It seems a little unfair. You'd think they could partner with Chippendales or something...
