10 Million Ways to Die

Add another to the list: getting your legs chopped off by the plane you skydived from. The guy managed to land, only to die later.

From the rhetorical questions file: why do singers always get far more attention when they screw up the national anthem than when they sing it properly?

While I'm linking, Norbizness found some lost Star Wars dialogue.

I got an email today from some guy who wanted my thoughts on Ozzy Osbourne's appearance at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in '02. OK, then, I thought, and I responded, happy to run with the topic. In the last few weeks, I've also gotten emails from the online operations of Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid (they'll be sad to learn that my words don't exactly swing large blocs of votes here). Last fall I got an email from a guy doing a project on blogs for a communications class at the Uniersity of Maryland. Last January, I was even interviewed for a wired.com article on blogs. Truly bizarre the attention one gets from writing one of these things, even if practically no one reads it.
