Chinese food is bad for you?

Being a professor is nice around finals week. Unlike my students, who are cramming for three or four different tests, watching their immune systems crumble, and enduring a week and a half of anxiety and agony, all I have to do is write a test, copy it, and then hand it to them and read a book while they sweat it out.

But, then again, I have to grade them.

On to the news:

But I went there for a healthy alternative
(Pope may also be Catholic, film at 11)

(The mental image on this one is astounding)

Karma 1, Enron 0
(Actually, Karma, 182M)

More "old people smuggling drugs" stories
(This one happens with alarming frequency)

Bright, shiny objects:

(A full minute of giggling!)

Actual useful information
(What to have in your car in case you get stranded in the snow)

Today's strange anniversary:

March 21, 1860 -- US extradition treaty with Sweden. Someone apparently felt the need to write that one down.

Fun fact of the day:

Why do they call it Latin America?

And finally:

Happy equinox to you all. It's the first day of spring, which means that the days are finally longer than the nights, and it only gets better until June!
