There's a car parts store out there. Not telling you which one, but it's in the city, and it's one of the big chains.

Go in there, and ask the guy with two nose studs for a pair of pink fluffy dice. Green, if you're a woman.

Tie 'em to your rear-view mirror. They really will make you go faster.

There has only ever been one book of prophecy truly inspired by god, and it is Vol 3 of the Connex Southeast Corporate records for 1999. Fortunately it was generated automaticly by a computer program based on their financial databse. It was the Programmer who was inspired by god.

Nobody has ever read it.

All holy books are truly and genuinely inspired by God, but she doesn't always tell the truth.

All books are inspired by God, and they're all true.

Except Moby Dick.

If you examine Moby Dick using the techniques of the so called "Bible Code" it predicts the death of princess dianna

(true actualy I attended a lecture by Simon Singh where he used it as an example of why the Bible Code idea was flawed and would work for any sufficiently long book ... but that's just what he wants us to believe)

The government is worried. Someone in Colorado is mailing out CDs with a demo program. It's bug-free, it's user friendly, and it will break any encryption in 12.4 seconds exactly. The crypto guys over at the NSA finally tried throwing completely random numbers at it. 12.4 seconds later, the program told them why they'd come up with those numbers. Sure, it only works eight times. But it says you can remove the limitation by buying the registered version.

Keep an eye out for the CDs. Each one is exactly 12 centimeters across, and 36.5 in circumference. God help you if you look at the reflections.

Take a look at some of your old photos. Do you have one that's a street scene, maybe from a vacation? Look at it closely. See that guy in the background, in the dark suit? You have to look carefully the first time.

Now look at some other photos. See that figure in the background? Yup, same guy.

He's in the background of a lot of your pictures. Anything where there's a crowd. Always a crowd. He doesn't want to stand out. It's not just you. He's in everyone's pictures. He's stuck there, has been for a hundred and fifty years. Back in 1839 he stopped for a shoeshine, and Daguerre trapped him. He's been trying to find a way out ever since.

Try looking at the pictures again in a few years. He'll be a little closer to the camera.

Cats can see things humans can't, like ghosts and destiny. It's because they sleep differently than we do. More lightly. It keeps their brains alert.

You can gain this power too. We can't sleep the way they do, but we can simulate it. All you have to do is restrict your sleep to fifteen-minute periods, and don't overindulge. (Set an alarm. Use discipline.) After about a week, you'll start seeing them too.

Any architect or designer Wal-Mart hires to develop its floor plans must be fluent in ancient Greek.

Throughout history, whenever a culture destroys or assimilates another, the ghosts of the old culture have remained, longing for vengeance. They can be mollified with relatively simple rituals of imitation, however. Hence, the ubiquity of tobacco in Western culture ever since the first colonies in the New World.

What, then, are the possible results of anti-smoking campaigns? And do they have anything to do with the precipitous increase in the popularity of piercings and tattoos?

What's next?

The "Wicca" depicted in Buffy the Vampire Slayer is in fact exactly what real high up wiccans believe. Don't think so? that's because you haven't been inducted into the secret mysteries yet.

----------------

Christ actualy did return during the lifetime of his disciples. However whilst his first coming had been in his peaceful form - Jesus, his second coming was in a vengeful form - Mithras. This is a mystery only known to certain members of the catholic and orthodox churches.

How do I know?

I used to be a Cardinal.

There's an extra in this one movie. He's a vaguely unsettling guy in a wheelchair. And he's not just in one movie...

...he's in <i>every</i> movie. You just need to know where to look.

I gotta admit, it scared the fuck out of me when I saw him rolling downhill covered in woad during Braveheart.

everyone knows the legend about the haunted place with more windows than rooms, yet no-one ever scales the buildings to peer in, wonder why? we don't talk about the folks who thought like you did.

The Viagra companies are keeping this secret, but every time a tower like building is demolished or collapses, impotance spikes in the population of that area.

guess who really controls the terrorists?
