benedictxvi.com for the new Pope?

Not likely.  Looks like Rogers Cadenhead snapped it up already.  If the Vatican wants to use the domain name of  benedictxvi, the new owner has some “requests”:

Here are some things I would like. Please do not call them demands:

  • I. Three days, two nights at the Vatican hotel they built for the conclave.
  • II. One of those hats.
  • III. Complete absolution, no questions asked, for the third week of March 1987.
  • IV. A back-cover blurb from the Pope for the next edition of Movable Type 3 Bible Desktop Edition. But only if he uses the book to create his own weblog.
  • V. World peace

Holy crap Batman!

The perfect crapper
ToiletAmerican Standard’s new Champion toilet can “swallow” 24 golf balls without choking.   It doesn’t have chains & flappers but a tower system for flushing and the waste opening is 40% larger virtually guaranteeing no need for plunging.  (They haven’t met my friend Mick yet.)  The (w)hole flushing story.

Maggots are good

 Four years ago, a small cut on Mitchell's left heel turned into an diabetes-related infection two inches wide and down to the bone... the powerful antibiotic that doctors prescribed for her infection was also wreaking havoc on her bones. Mitchell found a dermatologist willing to perform the [maggot] procedure, and soon had 600 live maggots wriggling inside the wound on her left foot, 400 in her right, where they were sealed in gauze and left for two days. Today, Mitchell walks normally and both wounds are completely healed. She is now a member of the board for the Biotherapeutics Education and Research Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes the medical use of maggots

How quickly they learn...

Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time...
A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers. Eventually the construction crew, all of them gems-in-the-rough, more or less adopted her as a kind of project mascot.  They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important.
At the end of the first week they even presented her with a pay envelope containing a couple of dollars. The little girl took this home to her mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take the two dollar "pay" she had received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.  When they got to the bank the teller was equally impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age.
The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with the crew building the house next door to us."
"My goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on this house again this week, too?"
The little girl replied, "I will if those idiots at Home Depot ever deliver the ******* sheet rock..."
