How to Assure No Second Date A nice write up in a blog on how to avoid a second date. Freakin' hilarious!
6. Wow. Leave your balls alone. Seriously, holy cow. Those are your balls. You guys are sitting, maybe, three feet apart. Jesus, man. There is not a dating guidebook in the world that would even conceive of writing a chapter called "Don't Play With Your Balls (on the First Date)" because any mammal with the gift of literacy would not even consider this a "Do I or Don't I?" kind of question. Wow. There you go again.
Good funny to wake up to on a tuesday after being awake till 2am!

On a related note (as in, also a funny blog entry) a review of the fashion highs and lows of religious extremists is a good read. Critisism of the fashion sense of the god hates [fags|shri-lanka|pope|america|everyone-but-us] people.

Obi Doesn't Remember R2? Cool blog entry over at the star wars blogs on Why doesn't Obi-Wan remember Artoo.
After first shuffling around with some nonsense about his old name (yes, Yoda calls him Obi-Wan after Luke's birth... let's stay on target here people), Ben is the master of not technically lying.
A cool read for fans anyway. Linked to by the 7 year old watching all 6 movies entry that was linked on /. this morning.

Battlefield 2 Demo Out Cool, Gamespot has the BF2 Demo online now. This looks awesome, at least from the E3 trailer. This is the sequal to Battlefield 1942, which if you remember right has lots of fighting action, lots of vehicles you can jump in and out of, etc. Very cool. It's a 500mb download, so I hope it's worth it :)

Counterstrike:Source Gimmicks I knew that Valve had released a map called "cs_office" for counterstrike, but have never played it. Found some info and screenshots on the CSBanana gimmicks page, and love the look of some of the stuff they put in. Note the inspirational posters... my favorite one has to be the one for 'ping' :)

Apple Keynote Live Updates I didn't realize that the rumors of Apple-on-Intel were anything more than pie in the sky rumors..... Dana was nice enough to point me to the WWDC 2005 Keynote Coverage which has live updates. Or rather, has live updates (as it's now 30 minutes passed when I originally started posting this, and things are starting to happen :)
