|The Caganer figurine is a traditional part of the Catalan Christmas crèche. I don't fully understand why a guy taking a dump is part of the scene of the birth of Christ, but this explanation of Catalonian Christmas traditions might help.

with this Pessebre Virtual.

|Anyone who watches movies at home should be aware
How Film Is Transferred to Video, so they can
understand whether to accept pan-and-scan or go off
looking for widescreen format. (My apologies that
this link doesn't involve naked inanimate objects
in suggestive poses; perhaps degenerate readers
can apply this to adult cinema.)|

|After I've built the bombs and exterminated 99% of humanity, I plan (unlike these weirdos) to rebuild civilization around the
two greatest movies of all time. Zardoz, the only
movie to ever feature Sean Connery in a bright orange diaper
and feature Giant Floating Stone Heads dispensing birth control advice. Zardoz, alone, is prince of movies, and in my
new Utopia, the huddled masses will look up from their mud-and-wattle huts to see the giant
floating stone heads flying across the sky chanting THE GUN IS GOOD, THE PENIS IS EVIL, WEATHER IN THE LOW
70'S, CONTINUING UNTIL SUNDAY. Hail Zardoz! Prince Of Movies.
And of course, to keep the masses from revolting, I will base my elite squadron of cyborg death commandos on
the designs pioneered in Infra-Man,
where blond Chinese queens from under the earth beat up on science police in tinfoil suits. Truly, it will be a glorious future!

|Space science is one of the biggest casulaties of the collapse of the Soviet Union, in particular,
the Buran, the Soviet
space shuttle, never got past the testing stage. The page, incidentally, is from
Encyclopedia Astronautica, a fairly beefy collection of links on space travel in general. Check out the seriously huge
list of cancelled spaceflights in particular.|

|If you happen to be chained to a desktop machine, I strongly reccomend the IBM Trackpoint Keyboard
featuring their trademark red eraserhead pointing device. If you occaisionally photoshop, there is a ps/2 port on
the back for a real mouse. However you'll be surprised how infrequently you'll move your arms away from the keyboard
and how much more physically connected you feel to your machine. I encourage you to switch
mouse button functionality between right and left buttons for optimal right handed trackpointing though.
If you reject pointing devices all together, then you should definitely go with IBM's AT Buckling-Spring Keyboard.
101 keys (none of this windows crap) of loud blissful joy.

|I've spent the last few months looking for the perfect laptop. This involves compulsively checking
with japanese importers (jpd and
dynamism) as well as reading trade rags and
poorly written magazines. While the SONY Vaio I mentioned earlier is an
absolute steal at $1400, I think the most perfect of the perfect laptops today has to be
the Fujitsu Biblo MF40X. Featuring an XGA 12.1" display, 3d accelerated graphics,
a 0.18 micron process Pentium III at 400mhz, and a modular bay that takes a DVD drive in a
svelte package that weighs between 3.7 and 4.5lbs. Unfortunately despite my letters, Fujitsu
only sells the SVGA version in the US, so you'll have to fork out $3800 to
jpd for the import.

|"PCs are like telephones, which also used to be huge objects that all
looked the same. The reason why the profit margins on the PC are so small
for so many manufacturers is that they've all concentrated on the same
thing: the CPU, the hard disk. People won't spend so much money on that
anymore. People want to feel the value of having
As long as manufacturers introduce wonderful quality, small size and great
benefits, customers will pay for that."

|Not able to find a gift for that certain hard-to-shop-for someone? Well, give the gift of livestock. No, seriously. I'm not kidding here. The livestock you give through The Heifer Project doesn't go to that person, it goes to families in third world countries where it can really change their lives by giving them a source of food and income. I'm giving my grandmother a llama this year.|
