There’s an exhibit on at the California Science Center called “Body Worlds: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human Bodies” that shows real human cadavers. It makes children cry and adults cry out about the “sanctity of the human body.” I raspberry the latter and wish that it would come to Vancouver.
At last I can rule the world, once I get my hands on one of Susumu Tachi’s Invisibility Cloaks!
L. Paul Bremer, the American proconsul in Iraq, in one of his final acts before handing over “sovereignty” to Iraq’s new interim government, decreed that American forces will remain immune from prosecution by Iraqi courts for crimes against Iraqi citizens or destruction of property
And hooray for Fahrenheit 9/11 opening at #1 at the box office. Let’s hope it kills Bush’s chance of being re-elected.
Lastly – here’s a weird story:
TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) — A Japanese teenager was forced by his teacher to write an apology in blood after dozing in the classroom, the school’s principal said on Monday.
The teacher later went to high school principal Hiroaki Dan and confessed what he had done, Dan told Reuters.
The teacher had apologized to the 17-year-old boy and his parents, Dan said, confirming a local media report of the incident, which happened last Thursday.
He said the boy was taken to the staff room of the school in Fukuoka City, southern Japan, after being caught asleep during a lesson. The 40-year-old male teacher handed the boy a box-cutter and paper and told him to write an apology in blood.
The teacher left the student, who then cut his finger and began to write an apology using his own blood.
