Archived News for the Month of June 2002

New this Week:

06-28: Honey, I shrunk the grimmie! Or at least that's the gag. Check out the latest addition to the High School Art page in the Art Portfolio section of the Hobbies department.

6-27: The Marathon files link has been fixed to reflect the demise of Fileball.net. Also new on the Lynx page is a link to a pro-2nd amendment web site some of you will find interesting. If nothing else, you can use it to contact your congressmen. Look for it in the Information section.

6-26: The Chili Facts page over in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department is updated with a graphic depicting the atomic structure of Capsaisin, the chemical that makes chilies hot. It was a simple step from there to developing atomic fusion. Next, robots will rule the world.

6-25: It looks like Hitometer is starting to wither on the vine. I have switched over to the services of Site Meter. You can read about it on the Page Hit Counter section of Web Building department.

6-24: Are they avoiding us or are we listening in on the equivalent of their string-and-tin-can phone hence the lack of traffic. These questions and more are ignored on the SETI page over in the Hobbies department.

6-20: All my split personalities singing together arm in arm -
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday dear meeeee-eeeeee,
Happy Birthday to me.

6-19: So what's going on here at the House of Wacks? I'm busy saving the world from Nazi tyranny and I am cleaning my oven at the same time thanks to New and Improved Easy-Off oven cleaner and the computer game, "Medal of Honor: Allied Assault"

6-17: I've traded in my aluminum foil hat for an aluminum foil bag to put over my head. I'm still protected from that radio in my head and now nobody can recognize me as I enter and exit SETI headquarters. For the latest progress report, go to the Hobbies department and/or click on the SETI link.

6-14: This weekend I am going to leave you with the Shakespearean Insulter, a new Humor link on the Lynx page. Bag on your friends with class using insults from the Immortal Bard himself. Perfect for hosing trolls and friends alike in email, newsgroups, chat or even in real life... if you have one, thou fawning fen-sucked clotpole!

6-13: "The Constitution... 'plainly is not adequate to protect the individual against the growing bureaucracy .. . The individual is almost certain to be plowed under, unless he has a well-organized active political group to speak for him.. . But if a powerful sponsor is lacking, individual liberty withers... ." — Justice William 0. Douglas, 1968. Visit the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.

6-12: The Chili Pepper Gardening page is now completed with a final word on harvesting your bounty. I mean what good is growing all that produce if you aren't actually going to "harvest it". (Notice I didn't say "pick it and eat it" because that has a whole nother connotation!) This is all going on in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department.

6-11: What if six hijackers kill two unarmed pilots and aim a 747 at a nuclear power plant? Do F-16's shoot down the plane and kill everybody aboard? Scary but very possible. Find the simple solution to this problem in the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

6-10: Come help me induct Carl Sagan into the Hall of Hallucinations as we further prove that we are either all alone of none of us in the human race can tune a frickin radio on the SETI page over in the Hobbies department.

6-7: Want to have some fun? There is a great online game I found that tries to guess which dictator or sit-com character you are pretending to be. This thing is uncanny accurate if you give it good answers. You have to know your character so don't try to fake it. I had a blast with this thing and want to share it with you. Check out "Guess the Dictator" over in the Games section of the Lynx page.

6-6: He "did what he thought was right in a very deadly encounter," said Detective Tony Morales, a Phoenix police spokesperson. He was commenting on a brave act of a citizen using a gun to come to the aid of his neighbors who were being attacked by a vicious gunman. Read all about it on the Armed Citizens feature of the NRA page over in the Extra department.

6-5: Today I trade links with freewebmasterhelp.com on the left side of the Web Building page under "Web Building Sites to Visit". Free Webmaster Help has everything a webmaster needs - for free. You can find in-depth tutorials, interesting articles, tools to improve your site, free web host reviews, counters, guestbooks and more.

6-4: Lions and tigers and bears oh my! Find out what you can do to protect your chili pepper plants from weeds, pests and diseases short of all out thermonuclear war. Visit the Gardening section of the Chili Pepper page over in the Hobbies department.

6-3: Despite my aluminum foil hat, matching shoes and underpants; signals are still coming from outer space and I am doing my best to understand them. View my latest efforts at the SETI page in the Hobbies department.


As usual, the Joke of the Weak is updated every weekday by 8AM PST and the SETI page is updated every Monday. The NRA pages President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen are updated each month.
