As TSA agents discovered the grisly contents of the package, Joe Pesci was sighted leaving the security line, a large black duffel bag encumbering his otherwise hasty retreat.

The link to the Seattle Public Utilities PDF is bad.

Its more like "pinup girls that look like cats". I hadn't realized how many pinup poses are feline. A freudian might say that this is why cats photos are so damn popular. Of course that's not true -- gay men like icanhz, after all. Nonetheless the "sex kitten" image is alive and well.

"The SoCal nuclear plant has had to close because of the unexpected deterioration of tubes."

Some people fear that the Internet may follow suit.

Not as bad as I was afraid actually, still bad mind you, but not "Waterworld" bad like the East Coast will have.

Also good news: nice to see in 2050 the Watetfront Streetcar is back.
