Owl Pellets for January 24th through January 28th

These are my undigested internests for January 24th through January 28th:

  • Haiti quake raises fears of child-eating spirits - – PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – “The earthquake that shattered Haiti has unleashed fears that child-eating spirits, mythological figures entrenched in Haitian culture, are prowling homeless camps in search of young prey.” You know, I think Madonna might be one of these loups-garous.
  • 30 Awesome Orange Websites For Your Inspiration | Web Design Tutorials and Inspiration | Learn Photoshop Online | Creative Inspiration | Web Resources – I was kinda worried about the amount of orange on this site. Liked how it looked but wasn’t sure how hard it is on the eyes. But I only had one complaint –from a friend who is always complaining anyway and that’s not an invitation for you to start-. Looking at these other orange sites, I find I don’t mind the colour at all..
  • Ubuntu to use Yahoo as default search engine – TechSpot News – This is probably interesting to about 10 people but I’m one of them. Big announcement on the day of the iPad Launch.
  • Blue Jays GM Confirms There Never Really Was A ‘Roy Halladay’ | The Onion – America’s Finest News Source – TORONTO—Responding to criticism that the team should have done more to deal star pitcher Roy Halladay by the trade deadline, Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi revealed at a press conference Monday that there was no such person as the alleged six-time All-Star.
  • Carlton Fisk blasts Mark McGwire – chicagotribune.com – “But when you have some of these obscene numbers being put up by people who shouldn’t even be there. … I mean, you know what’s going on. … The people it should have been most obvious to are the people who covered it up by not addressing it . . . You don’t blame people for not ratting them out; you blame the people who abused the pharmaceutical world. It’s not like you are taking a couple of aspirin and you don’t know what’s going on. (Non-prescription steroid use has been) a federal offense for a long time, regardless of whether baseball was recognizing it and putting rules into place. The people who did it … they were breaking the law to start with. It doesn’t have to be a baseball law. They knew what they were doing and the reason they were doing it. Now they are sorry because they are getting called out.” What else is new, Carlton?
