I woke up this morning, turned on the news, and found out it’s that time of year again: Oscars. Have a look at the nominees here. After looking at the list, I discovered that I have not seen many of the movies that spawned the nominations. It looks like I have a lot of movies to see.

If you smoke and work at Weyco, Inc in Lansing, MI your time is short. The company recently fired four employees due to their refuasal to take a test to determine if they smoke. This brief article tells the story of the firings. It should be interesting to see what happens when this company is ineveitably taken to court. It will be a personal right to privacy issue to keep an eye on.

Smoking obviously adds to the cost of health care, but where do you draw the line of personal freedom to do what you want on your free time and your employers rights to be concerned about you do in your free time?

So, you think you can cheat death? Well, a man from San Mateo, Califronia thought he could. This article tells the story of man who changed his travel plans at the last minute, avoiding disaster at the hands of a tsunami in Sri Lanka.But, as the story tells, the man did not avoid disaster. After making a wise decision to avoid the Asian tsunami, the bay area man chose to go snowboarding, and was killed in an avalanche.

It’s the cold harsh truth. Everyday in America (and around the world) many robots go without a home. This is a problem that has been growing in recent decades. Now, the Robosapien Foundation is here to help. Robosapien homelessness is ever increasing due to a bad economy, predjudiced employers, and many labor interests fighting against robosapien rights. Robosapiens have many needs that have to be met, from new oil for their joints, to reprogramming, and even the simple things that we homosapiens take for granted, such as a warm place to sleep. The time to act is now! Help out our robot friends, before they turn on us and take over the world.

Ever go to the bank and wonder why we humans have never invented a huge tube system to travel by? Me niether, but these people have. Now, I’m not know for my knowlege of physics, math, or really even reality. What I do know is that it seems scarey that the tube just stop in the picture. I sure hope people don’t shoot out of the end. I know you guys are going to have all kinds of questions, such as “What happens if the tube breaks and loses preassure”?, but never fear, they have an FAQ. Enjoy

GPS has been a good thing. It has many uses, such as allowing motorists find their destination with ease. But, just imagine that you are driving on a highway in Eastern France and your GPS tells you to pull a U-Turn on the crowded highspeed road, what do you do? Just do as this man did and follow instructions. The driver was old, so I don’t know who to blame this one on, perhaps we’ll call it a shared liablility.

With an adventurous sense of curiosity a few young men and a young woman turn to science to figure out if cheap vodka can be made better, through the process of filtration.  The scientific method was more or really, less followed in this trial to determine if bad booze could turn good. This site has all the procedures, data, results, and conclusions in an easy to follow format with amusing pictures and raw notes. Now, vodka filtration usually requires a complicated device such as the one in the picture above. The sheer beauty of this experiment is that the filtration was done with a simple filtering system available at local supermarkets and discount superstores for about $10-$15.

Not too long ago .alpahmonkey., ShadowStalkr, and I were sitting around at the bar discussing the lost art of ASCII. We had fond memories of days past when naughty bodyparts were drawn with symbols, such as (+) and other similar methods. Well, as it turns out, ASCII art is still HUGE. This site not only has art from the days past, but there are also ASCII versions of some of your favorite movie scenes.Go on and check it out. It’s a cool site, the link goes to the list of movies but there is other good content on the site to take a look at.

This site is a humorous site on a very serious topic. The draft may be coming back, infact as this site points out, many military experts expect a return of the draft. I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, “Hey souped, how can a website that addresses the return of the draft be humorous?” Well, check it out.This site has many funny moments at the expense of those who are 18-34 (or up to 44 if you are lucky enough to have experience in foriegn languages, computers, or the medical fields!). They probe such deep issues as the likely hood of partying it up in Baghdad with those wacky party girls the Bush twins, addresses why the draft would be awesome, and has quotes such as “I look killer in a black body bag, and I don’t even work out!”

Give the site a look.
