I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

(*Well, it's sorta mine... I get to drive it sometmes, right?)

Alongside food and fire crackers, Chinese are adding a new item to their lunar New Year shopping: Adult diapers. Sales have soared ahead of the holiday as travelers prepare for long trips home aboard trains so crowded that even the toilets are jammed with people, newspapers said Tuesday. In Foshan, a southern industrial city with a large migrant population, supermarkets report diaper sales have risen 50 percent since the main travel season began on Jan. 14, the papers said.

You Are a Boston Creme Donut
You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily. You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.

The origins of the Great War of 2007 - and how it could have been prevented
The devastating nuclear exchange of August 2007 represented not only the failure of diplomacy, it marked the end of the oil age. Some even said it marked the twilight of the West. Certainly, that was one way of interpreting the subsequent spread of the conflict as Iraq's Shi'ite population overran the remaining American bases in their country and the Chinese threatened to intervene on the side of Teheran.

This site will tell you the #1 tune in the country (either the US or UK) on the day you were born. My US song is: "Mr Cluster - Larry Verne" Who??? I do recognize the UK song, however. It's: "Tell Laura I Love Her - Ricky Valance" Wonder if that's where the name came from?

Gee, now who would have EVER guessed that this would happen?
ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) -- The Turkish gunman who shot Pope John Paul II failed to report to a police station Friday -- the day after his release from prison -- and authorities said the military could ask for his arrest for draft-dodging. Mehmet Ali Agca was required to report daily to a police station to allow authorities to keep tabs on him until at least officials decide on whether he should serve his military service. Istanbul Gov. Muammer Guler said Agca -- whose whereabouts were unknown -- had not reported to any police station by Friday evening. Guler said Agca was also required to report to a military hospital on Monday. "If he doesn't show up, he will be listed as a draft-dodger" and his arrest could be sought, Guler said.

A project of the Music Genome Project.... you give it an artist, and it creates a playlist of music you might enjoy. Too bad I have such lousy speakers on my laptop--the songs it plays really are interesting, and mostly new to me. I'll have to try a couple other genres to see what it comes up with! h/t to From Where I sit

Jonathon (The Impaler) Sharkey has chosen Friday – yes, Friday the 13th– to formally announce his candidacy [for Governor of Minnesota]. “Unlike other candidates, I’m not going to hide my evil side,” he said. The 13-point platform on his extensive website (www.jonathonforgovernor.us) offers a number of conventional policy initiatives, including emphasis on education, tax breaks for farmers and better benefits for veterans. Quite some distance from the mainstream, however, is his pledge to execute --by impalement in front of the State Capitol -- terrorists, rapists, drug dealers, child abusers, repeat drunken drivers and anybody who preys on the elderly.
