there are some real beauty's architect wonders on the site but some are real shitty as well.
to bad for it little bit nationalism in me that there isn't one dutch challenger for the new world wonders.
Some nice dutch world wonders:
the delta werken: Imagine everybody called it a wonder that jezus walked over water and turned water in to wine. Than the delta werken are defiantly a world wonder.
The kubus woningen(van blom):
Hihihi we live in a square.

Boredom – A great Spiritual Phenomenon. Abha, boredom is one of the most important things in human life. Boredom simply shows that you are becoming aware of the futility of life, its constant repetitive wheel. Boredom is the first indication that a great understanding is arising in you about the futility, meaninglessness of life and its ways.An interesting read about boredom.

Amazing that more than 90% of the Japanese died.
cybrbeast (referring to Flags of Our Fathers):
Ira Hayes (you guys found him the most annoying character, I found him the best)
Referring to his alcoholism, he once said: "I was sick. I guess I was about to crack up thinking about all my good buddies. They were better men than me and they're not coming back. Much less back to the White House, like me." After the war, Hayes accumulated some fifty arrests for drunkenness.
In 1954, after a ceremony where he was lauded by President Eisenhower as a hero, a reporter rushed up to him and asked him, "How do you like the pomp and circumstance?" Hayes just hung his head and said, "I don't."
Ira's tragic story was immortalized in a song, "The Ballad of Ira Hayes", by Peter LaFarge. Covers of this song were done by Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Smiley Bates, Bob Dylan, Kinky Friedman and Townes van Zandt. In 1964, Johnny Cash took the song to number 3 on the Billboard country music chart.
Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima
The movie seems to be pretty accurate.
Now we have to wait until the other part; Letters from Iwo Jima is released. It's a top 250 movie.
A gigantic 10m-long squid, believed to be the largest ever found, has been caught by New Zealand fishermen in the Ross Sea.
Weighing an estimated 450kg, the colossal squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) was eating a hooked toothfish when it was hauled to the surface of the New Zealand vessel San Aspiring, owned by the Sanford seafood company.
Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni @ wiki
Though it is known from only a few specimens, current estimates put its maximum size at 12–14 metres
Pretty scary creature, I wouldn't want to meet that while swimming, or diving in one of those mini submersibles. I do hope they catch some footage of a live one soon.

The finding of a parrot with an almost unparalleled power to communicate with people has brought scientists up short.
The bird, a captive African grey called N'kisi, has a vocabulary of 950 words, and shows signs of a sense of humour.
When he first met Dr Jane Goodall, the renowned chimpanzee expert, after seeing her in a picture with apes, N'kisi said: "Got a chimp?"
Pretty amazing. Full article in the main link.
If you haven't seen him, Einstein the parrot is also pretty smart.

It appears that Britney has decided to not only shave her pussy, but also her head.
There's a video and news story in the blog link. It also appears that she went into rehab, but left a day later. Maybe she finally snapped, or she is just going for a Sinead O'Connor look.
More pics here.

I think it looks sexier, it also has a higher resolution screen and camera, and operates on Windows. It's also likely to be lots and lots cheaper.
