They forgot to say, "With alignment set properly, the system will fire when the pilot smiles."

One Key

Dear Lazyweb,

In my continuing quest to reduce the number of items on my keychain, I would like to have my mailbox lock re-keyed to be on the same key as my door. I had one locksmith tell me he couldn't do it, but maybe one of you knows where I can find a lock that will fit on my mailbox, that can also be re-keyed to take a normal-sized key. (The mailbox is in part of a huge bank of mailboxes in the lobby, so replacing the entire door is not an option.)

I'm also considering dremelling that RFID fob apart to see if I can make it smaller. But they charge a stupid amount of money to replace them...

SOMA Nature Walk

Since they covered up the hole with a road, I don't get to see the underground drama very often any more.

G, E, B, Leviathan

The shadow of this cube in different directions gives QR codes pointing to the Wikipedia articles for Kurt Godel, M.C. Escher, and J.S. Bach respectively. Note that QR codes cannot be read in mirror image, so only 3 of the 6 possible cube orientations cast a readable shadow.

Best comment:

"Though it's true QR codes can't be read in mirror images, these particular reverse images codes do work. They point to the Wikipedia articles for Achilles, Tortoise and Crab."

"Please, please help me. The eel is moving through my body."

After entering via the anus, the fish perforated the man's colon and caused massive internal bleeding.

By the time the man reached help, the creature - weighing half a kilo - was writhing its way through his internal organs, using a mouthful of razor-sharp teeth to cling onto intestinal walls.

"It was still alive when we got it out but it died soon afterwards, which was probably a mercy."
