Netherlands runs out of criminals,
has to shut prisons

Netherlands obviously knows what the hell they're doing; how about we take some lessons from them? President Obama, I'm talking to you.
The Dutch justice ministry has announced it will close eight prisons and cut 1,200 jobs in the prison system. A decline in crime has left many cells empty.
Read the story here.

Remember when?
Christian Bale's Meltdown:
The Dance Remix

This is so old now, but I've had the track in my iTunes, and it just came up (I love shuffle!) so I felt like sharing. It's totally NSFW, but it's catchy and I can dance to it.

Note to wife:
don't watch this.

You think it's just going to be cool and neat, but it gets dark and scary. Sorry to spoil it for those who like dark and scary, but everyone else should consider this fair warning.

That said, *I loved it.

How to Beat the Swine Flu

It's really simple.

Americans, we've decided, are so dumb that "we" think to avoid the swine flu, just don't eat pork. (I never eat pork, but that's another story.) To avoid this misconception, the CDC et. al. are attempting to rebrand Swine Flu as H1N1, hoping that will lead to people doing more sensible things to avoid contracting the flu, and skipping the ridiculous pro-avoidance methodology.

Here's how you beat the swine flu (and all flu strains in the future): call it the Dirty Hands Flu.

Feel free to share my idea; just credit Toner Mishap.
