Friday Funnies - Darwin and Martin

A short work week and a quick Friday Funnies - First off - the DARWIN Awards for the most creative way of skimming the Gene Pool.

A 24-year-old Swiss second lieutenant picked up an award for learning a lesson Indiana Jones taught us long ago in Raiders of the Lost Ark: Don't attack with a sword if your opponent has a gun.

While trying to demonstrate a surprise knife attack on an armed soldier, the lieutenant grabbed a bayonet and leapt at an unsuspecting young man nearby.

They had it posted on the old Screen Savers site a long time back, and on for a while, but I've just kept it in the image file. Now I'm setting it back up here so the folks who have zapped the site from the Digg Link can see it. Enjoy.

Notice how Gates looks a lot like Montgomery Burns?

I thought I'd put a little movie up on why I don't always get the blog updated on a regular basis. As you can see - there's a helpcat that isn't very helpful.
