I need that like I need...

NOT safe for work...

This page has a very not work safe image on it - but the story is one of those things that is funny, yet makes you feel really sorry for the victim... Edit: OK, I guess the warning wasn't clear. This isn't porn, it is disgusting. The key word is 'prolapse'. OK? Now you've been warned.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Well, a comment pointed out that Snopes has something to say about this too.

Stranded at the Airport

This has come up a few times in the past few days in conversation and I was kind of surprised by the number of geeks who *didn't* know about this. It originally came up because of the forthcoming Spielberg/Hanks picture 'The Terminal' which appears to be loosely based off of this true story.

Yes, there really is a man who has been stranded at Charles De Gaulle Airport since 1988! August 26, 1988 to be precise - and his name is Merhan Karimi Nasseri. This story is one of those things that is almost impossible to believe - like something right out of Catch 22. And it is kind of scary to think that it can really happen.
