A growing cadre of Americans collect, cook on, restore and generally admire old stoves, for their design, craftsmanship and superior performance. Among this group of devotees, Ed Semmelroth -- a.ka. "the stove man" -- is legendary for his passion and skill in restoring old stoves to nearly perfect conditions.
Dude, I know this guy!
I went to high school with him and thought he was bizarre for collecting stoves. Now he's bizzare on NPR too!

Introduction to a bogus computer-generated paper entitled Rooter: A Methodology for the Typical Unification of Access Points and Redundancy.

A month or so ago, we reported on a posit involving how many 5-year-olds you could take down before they brought you to your knees. Looks like this guy has taken the next step, from vague postulation to strength analysis and risk assessment of a specific kindergarten class. It's on!

A friend and I were talking about these new combat robots, and he was going on about the fact that they violate Isaac Asimov's laws of robotics. This conversation prompted me to go home and jump on the net, where I delved into the history of robots. Came across other cool links on the subject, like the Victorian Robot Hoax, and mileposts in the history of computing, like the first computer bug.

I loves me some abandoned stuff. Subways, old houses, that kind of stuff. But there's one topic of abandon that, for some reason, really grabs a hold of my attention: hospitals. Time to scratch the itch, cause this one is a peach.

If you're in the Irvine, CA area this next weekend, check out the live production of Spock's Brain, re-enacted word for word on the stage. Impress your date by shouting out dialogue a second before the actors do!
