Some new linkies:

Listen up--this stuff is important: The Link Between the 2003 viruses and worms and Spam (UCE) junkmail. Warning: PDF file. I can attest to the truth of this article. It's important for people to be informed about this. Spam is NOT a benign industry, and the most malicious virii are NOT written by bored teenagers looking for kix.

Mother Teresa: The Final Verdict - The truth about Mother Teresa, as told by a native of Calcutta. Aroup Chatterjee will open your eyes. This is the story that caused my break with the Catholic Church.

The Wailing Wall: An Atheist Joke

A journalist assigned to the Jerusalem bureau has an apartment overlooking the Western Wall. Every day when she looks out, she sees an old bearded man praying vigorously. Certain he would be a good interview subject, the journalist goes down to the Wall, and introduces herself to the old man.

She asks, "You come every day to the Wall. Sir, how long have you done that and what are you praying for?"

. . . you start thinking in Japanese but with English subtitles. -- YuGaTA

The old man replies, "I have come here to pray every day for 25 years. In the morning I pray for World Peace and for the Brotherhood of Man. I go home have a cup of tea, and I come back and pray for the Eradication of Illness and Disease from the earth. And very, very important, I pray for Peace and Understanding between man and his neighbours."

The journalist is impressed. "How does it make you feel to come here every day for 25 years and pray for these wonderful things?" she asks.

The old man replies, calmly, "Like I'm talking to a f ***ing wall."

Well, you'll be pulling your hair out no more with the demoroniser. Oh yeah, it runs on perl, but surely any non-moron can hack that.
