Constitutional Terrorists?
KBA | Submitted by: Soylent

Among the things it lists are "Makes numerous references to the US Constitution" and "Claims driving is a right, not a privilege". It does not list "Islamic Fundamentalist" at all. The flyer was intended for distribution to law enforcement.

I Want My OTV
London Telegraph | Submitted by: Soylent
"This is a great propaganda film - the kind that you can't get out of your head. Bin Laden's story of Muslim subjugation turning to resistance is so effective that I barely need my transcripts. He uses the most sophisticated western film-making techniques: it's as if Guy Ritchie, Sylvester Stallone and Spielberg have banded together to make jihad, the movie."

Hans-Josef Brinkmann, who is probably fat, drank two cans of Coke a day for years and somehow ended up a diabetic. After this, his plans are to sue the maker of Snickers and Milky Way. Yes, probably fat. Incidentally fatness is the most prominent cause of diabetes-- but it's hard to sue yourself for being fat.

Dog loses out on $19,000 truffle
Los Angeles Times | Submitted by: Soylent
Restauranteur Wolfgang Puck paid $19,000 for a 1.82 pound truffle, which is a new record. Whatever. The interesting part of this story is that one of the bidders at the auction was Gunther IV, a dog that inherited $200M. The first story is the truffle, the second is Gunther buying Madonna's mansion slightly more than a year ago.
