Another site with pics of strange, different, or whatever-you'd-call-them people.
The Federal Reserve must for the first time identify the companies in its emergency lending programs after losing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.  
 
Should be an interesting list...
Title says it all.. laughing at laughing..
He was a 14-year-old blind kid, angry and alone. Then he discovered that he possessed a strange and fearsome superpower — one that put him in the cross hairs of the FBI  
 
Wow.. the kids' pretty slick
Wow.. just..wow..  
 
"Yesterday I came across a slightly mysterious website — a collection of Polaroids, one per day, from March 31, 1979 through October 25, 1997. There’s no author listed, no contact info, and no other indication as to where these came from. So, naturally, I started looking through the photos. I was stunned by what I found."  
 
The collection can be seen here;  
 
Photo of the day
As the title says.... not great but okay.

"At the age of 7, I could recite all 66 books of the Bible in 19 seconds. My father insisted on this because he was frustrated at waiting as his children flipped back and forth trying to find the verses he was preaching from. Afterwards, if one of us took to long my father would stop in the middle of his preaching, cast a gimlet eye on the offender and demand that, “Somebody smack that kid!”

Austin, Texas—The Texas Private Security Board yesterday declined for a second time to adopt a rule that would end the justifiable confusion over whether computer repair technicians in the state must be government-licensed private investigators to continue solving their customers’ computer problems.  
 
amazing..I'd heard of this type legislation being bandied around, didn't know a state had actually implemented it.

Lost in Space
Posted by hmarshall in blinded by science 9 years ago
"There are those who believe that somewhere in the vast blackness of space, about nine billion miles from the Sun, the first human is about to cross the boundary of our Solar System into interstellar space. His body, perfectly preserved, is frozen at –270 degrees C (–454ºF); his tiny capsule has been silently sailing away from the Earth at 18,000 mph (29,000km/h) for the last 45 years. He is the original lost cosmonaut, whose rocket went up and, instead of coming back down, just kept on going."  
 
Not conclusive, we may never really know. Interesting story of two brothers who listened in on the Soviet Space Program.
