Toothpaste for Dinner: The Marketing Department

Currently making me chuckle muchly is the dead-tree version of ‘Toothpaste for Dinner’ — Only ten bucks at Amazon. Here’s my favourite cartoon from the book.

Does exactly what it says on the can. “Beedogs.com is the premier online repository for pictures of dogs in bee costumes.”

Songbird Media Player

New cross-platform iTunes-a-like being built by some former Nullsoft guys. Interesting to see someone other than the Mozilla foundation building apps in XUL.

NPR : There is No God (Penn Jilette)

Excellent commentary by Penn Jillette on atheism. This is my “belief system” too.

“Believing there is no God means the suffering I’ve seen in my family, and indeed all the suffering in the world, isn’t caused by an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent force that isn’t bothered to help or is just testing us, but rather something we all may be able to help others with in the future. No God means the possibility of less suffering in the future.”
