Busy couple days at work, coupled with flaky internet at home, means no real posts. Sorry. By way of compensation…

The text, such as it is, of the oh-so-controversial coloring book A Scary Thing Happened;

Free market supply and demand in action, marijuana-style: Authorities destroy a half-million dollars of dope, and Hells Angels in Canada are stockpiling it to drive the price up. Yay, capitalism at work!

I’d like a Coke, a basket of fries, and an Uzi, please. Do you take cheques?

Yay, the the nine-year-old bride in Saudi Arabia has divorced her 50-year-old husband. (Ick.)

Suspicious statistic of the day: According to a British Rail spokesperson, people trespassing on railroad tracks in Britain “costs the rail industry millions of pounds a year”. How on earth do they arrive at that figure?

Last and least, from Wikileaks, Intelligence Exploitation of Enemy Material, a 2006 USMC publication.
