Seen around and about 

Will you be dead a year from now? Figure the odds, and plan accordingly.

The President of Audi of America speaks about the new General Motors...
To start, he said the Volt is "a car for idiots." Adding that they're too expensive and, "No one is going to pay a $15,000 premium for a car that competes with a (Toyota) Corolla. So there are not enough idiots who will buy it." He predicted that the Volt will fall flat, which will cause the federal government to step in and subsidize the Volt in order to save face...

... sounds plausible -- but then, how many cars does Audi sell in America?

The Swedish military has problems with its bras...
The Swedish Conscript Council has told the country's military leaders the bras are useless in combat because of weak catches. They also claim a lack of fireproofing means the bras can even catch fire and melt into the skin of a female soldier... [Ananova]
... but then, when was the last time the Sweden sent its military into combat - with bras or without?

A lover's quadrangle results in "Krazy Glued" genitals. For some guys a triangle should be enough. (Well, Krazy Glued on is better than Bobbitted off, one guesses.)

An issue of vibrating importance going to the Supreme Court?

No peak oil yet. (So no need to buy that Volt until the government subsidy lowers its price.)
