Wacky Laws Still on the Books in America

Here's an example of one on the list:

In West Virginia, anyone who taunts someone who decides not to participate in a duel or who declines to accept a challenge is guilty of a misdemeanor and can be sent to jail for up to six months and fined up to $100. - Wacky Laws Still on the Books in America - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

tons of reports—tons—about failing Zune 30s. Apparently, the players began freezing at about midnight last night, becoming totally unresponsive and practically useless. Updated 12:00PMThe crisis has been dubbed by Zune users 'Z2K9', due to the apparently synchronized faceplantings across the country. According to tipster Michael, the Zune users experienced something like this: Apparently, around 2:00 AM today, the Zune models either reset, or were already off. Upon when turning on, the thing loads up and... freezes with a full loading bar (as pictured above).

The real origin of Laugh-Out-Loud Cats

At first I would have believed this, but the more of them you look at the more you realize it's not true. Clever though.

Pre-Christian Alpine traditions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The word Krampus originates from the Old High German word for claw (Krampen). In the Alpine regions the Krampus is represented by an incubus in company of Saint Nicholas. Traditionally, young men dress up as the Krampus in the first two weeks of December, particularly in the evening of December 5, and roam the streets frightening children (and adults) with rusty chains and bells. In some rural areas the tradition also includes slight birching by the Krampus, especially of young females."

Myst Online goes open source, fans to make their own worlds

When GameTap shut down the servers for MystOnline: UruLive earlier this year, it was a major disappointment for the small, but dedicated, fan base the game had acquired over the years. Those fans will now have a chance to shape the future of the game, as developer Cyan Worlds has announced that the source code for the title will soon be released, giving fans the ability to mold and update the now-open source game as they see fit.

If I Die A Bacon-Related Death, I'd Like It To Be Because Of This

Who would have thought that simply weaving bacon together like a basket, covering it in cheese, and rolling it up into a cannister looking thing, would be the thing that finally made me so "I don't know if I can eat this." Although, I quickly followed that statement with "I'd like to try and see if I can eat this."

Turning the iPod Touch into a phone

The MP3 player can be transformed into a mobile phone with the help of a free app from Internet telephone company Truphone. The new app allows users with a Wi-Fi connection to make and receive phone calls via voice over IP with other iPod Touch owners, users of the Google Talk's messaging service, and customers of Truphone's Internet telephone service. The company said it expects to add the ability to handle landline calls.The app creates a virtual keyboard on second-generation iPod Touchs to dial calls and requires the addition of a headset and microphone.However, Apple doesn't appear to be too threatened by Truphone; the application is available for free download at Apple's App Store.

70's photographs: Rock stars at their Parents Houses.

These pictures are strangely humanizing, showing these rock stars at their parents place. They all seem to have real, honest-to-goodness, “normal” seeming families (well, maybe except for Elton John).

Songbird Blog » Songbird 1.0 is Here!

It's finally out of beta, much faster that before, and it's been several hours and it hasn't crashed on me yet. So that's a step up from the previous versions. I've been an on again, off again fan since it started. Let's see if this gets me on again. Although with tools like (now called load2mobile) and foxytunes which uses the in-browser yahoo player already working in firefox... could this music player be a little too late?
