Move over, 3G

Just when cell phone companies were gearing up for 3G, it looks like it's about to be eclipsed by WiMax.

Goodnight, TiVO

An article sent by my wife forcasts the end of TiVO.

Cat's in the shredder and the silver spoon, little boy saw it and started to swoon...

There was a horrible incident in the household the other night involving a cat and a paper shredder. Cat will be fine, there's now a cover over the shredder* and Bank One gets to charge interest on another $600 we had to charge. (*I've heard the cats turn it on themselves when we weren't even in the room.) So now he has a shaved patch and some really nasty raw looking skin. He never did really bleed, so that's good. We took the opportunity to also de-male him. How sad. But between those two incidents, he may just prove to be nicer to the other cats.

It's getting tougher and tougher to weigh the dog. Weighing the dog involves getting him to stand up on two legs facing away from you, then grabbing him around the middle and lifting him in the air and then stepping on to the scale trying to make sure his flailing paws don't break the shower door or push against a wall knocking him over on top of you. And also making sure that he doesn't twist his head around and bite yours. The sucker weighs 72 pounds! And he was the runt of the litter.

Killing Koalas

On Kangaroo Island off the coast of Australia, they have a problem... there are too many koalas... they are eating all the foliage, the trees are dying and the koalas may eventually die of starvation because there's no food left for them to eat. They've tried sterilizing the koalas, and even transporting large quantities back to the mainland, but to no avail, they apparently think they're bunnies. Anyhow, conservationists are asking the government to "thin the herd", if you will, but they're afraid to because of the tourist backlash. I have the perfect solution... give away koalas to each tourist who visits. Seems like a plan to me.
