Terrorist Mohammed Taheri-Azar has been convicted of nine counts of attempted first-degree murder in the March 2006 incident where he drove his vehicle into the Pit at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He will be sentenced to between 26 and 33 years in prison. As a reminder to the world, he said at one point that he acted to avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world.

Found stashed on my computer, from around the time of the release of the 4th edition of Dungeons & Dragons, is this Wired article, discussing how gamers would react to a new edition of a cookbook.
Among my favorite comments is this one, from one of those people who demands total realism in their game:
I just have to laugh at the recipe for Beef Wellington. In Wellington's day, ovens didn't have temperature settings! And pate de foie gras certainly didn't come in cans. It's like the authors didn't even care about replicating authentic early 19th century cooking techniques!

MightyGodKing has the 2008 election described with Magic: the Gathering cards. They're funny, though of course they'd be funnier written from a conservative viewpoint. He's also taking reader submissions, to be posted Monday. So I've submitted some cards of my own.
(via alternatehistory.com, of all places)
Update: Part 2 is here, using some of my submissions.
