Fun with referrer logs

I suppose it was one of my regular readers who came up with this one:

Cobb smooths flap: Schools can have peanut-free zones

A more than usually meddlesome school principal in Georgia had said that she was banning peanuts from her campus. The school district the next day said she wouldn’t and there could be “peanut free zones” if someone actually has an allergy. (She apparently didn’t even know if there was anyone who could be harmed by them.) What I’m taking from this is a continued reinforcement of my belief that the Dilbert Principle exists, and principals (excuse the pun) are among the beneficiaries. Every school principal I remember meeting has been either incompetent or a petty tyrant or both. I’m sure there are decent ones, I’m just saying I don’t recall meeting any.

Tired Of Walking Fish? Try Flying Snake

I’m not tired of the walking fish, but perhaps everyone else is. Still, a flying snake is pretty cool, even if it hasn’t invaded our shores (yet). The next in line would be a swimming bird, I think. In that case, we need to make sure no penguins get established in the North American ecosystem. They’re voracious.

UPDATE: Amish Tech Support is now your official Flying Asian Paradise Tree Snake Headquarters.

With implant Miss America may hear again

Heather Whitestone, the deaf woman who won Miss America back in ’95, got a cochlear implant, which I assume would really piss off the “deaf identity” community except that they never really liked her anyway.
