Using Internet Explorer is like leaving your front door wide open all night

Don't do it. Slashdot | Experts Say To Switch Browsers In Light of IE Vulnerability
"Microsoft has begun flooding media outlets with information advising users to switch to an alternate browser while a serious security flaw is being patched. The flaw, which affects all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer, is manifested via malware and has infected over 6000 sites thus far. Microsoft states: 'The vulnerability exists as an invalid pointer reference in the data-binding function of Internet Explorer. When data binding is enabled (which is the default state), it is possible under certain conditions for an object to be released without updating the array length, leaving the potential to access the deleted object's memory space. This can cause Internet Explorer to exit unexpectedly, in a state that is exploitable.'"

This remote makes me uncomfortable

grinding.be -- Gel Remote

Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it seems to come to life. A soft light emanates somewhere from within as the center of the device begins to slowly rise and fall, mimicking the tranquil motions of breath. Left undisturbed, the remote will slumber peacefully. But should a human hand approach, sensors inside alert it to the imminent touch. It stops breathing, grows rigid – the light from within is extinguished.

World of Warcraft: The Wrathgate

World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King

Roughly halfway through the new Wrath of the Lich King expansion, in the land of the Dragonblight, at the culmination of a few ridiculously long quest chains this cutscene plays. (Click through to see it.)

It's the first in-game cutscene in WoW, and is a milestone much like when Jonathan Coulton's "Still Alive" provided the payoff/coda to Portal. It's a new step in game narratives.

In "Wrathgate," the Alliance and the Horde put aside their differences momentarily and storm the front door of the Lich King's fortress. The Lich King, Arthas, handily beats them but his army is then defeated by an attack of his former minions--and current members of the Horde--the Forsaken.

It's a great moment in a fantastic game. If you will be playing WotLK, I'd suggest not watching it here. As it's much more of a surprise when it pops up in-game.

Tina Fey a victim of random violence

Tina Fey Reveals Trauma Behind Her Scar - Tina Fey : People.com
Since shooting to fame and winning Emmys as the star and creator of 30 Rock, Tina Fey has remained quiet about the dramatic story behind the faint scar that lines that left side of her face. "It's impossible to talk about it without somehow seemingly exploiting it and glorifying it," Fey, 38, tells Vanity Fair in its January issue. But when she was 5, the future TV star was playing in the front yard of her Upper Darby, Penn., home when a stranger approached the young Fey and violently cut her cheek.
