Lots of great links found their way into my inbox this week! Thanks to everyone who contributes to the pool. Once again I threw out about half of what I was going to include, just to keep to a managable level. Don't feel you have to go to every link today, because I may have some linkless posts next week... or maybe not.
I got a ton of new readers yesterday, thanks to Mark and The Carnival of Cars, thank you very much!
Why do Asian girls go for white guys? Why can't Asian guys compete? This movie is called Yellow Fever. Its 15 minutes long, so load it when you have something else to do offline. Funny and thought-provoking.
The story of one man’s response to a Nigerian 419 scam. THIS is FUNNY, but trying it yourself is not recommended.
Evgeni Plushenko - Sex Bomb!
The Love Calculator will tell you what the odds are of a great relationship by entering the names of two people. I tried it. Got horrible results with first names, last names, screen names, radio names... then I finally read the instructions that said real first name and real last name. OK. Bingo! 83% odds of making it!
How to tell is somebody is lying to you.
Distorted Tunes Test. (lifted from Omegamom) I scored 100%, but it was painful to hear some of these tunes played so badly. I have such a good ear for music that I'm fully aware of how badly I sing!
Apples and Wine
Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don’t want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren’t as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they’re amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who’s brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.
Men are like fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it’s up to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Talk about timing! There's a great punchline here. Probably more than one. What do YOU make of this?
Sitting together on a train, traveling through the Canadian Rockies were an American guy, a Canadian guy, a little old Greek lady, and a young blonde girl with large breasts.
The train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later there is the sound of a loud slap. When the train emerges from the tunnel, the American has a bright red hand print on his cheek. No one speaks.
The old Greek lady thinks: The American guy must have groped the blonde in the dark and she slapped his cheek.
The blonde girl thinks: That American guy must have tried to grope me in the dark, but missed and fondled the old lady and she slapped his cheek.
The American thinks: The Canadian guy must have groped the blonde in the dark. She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.
The Canadian thinks: I can't wait for another tunnel, just so I can smack the American again.
I remember this joke from when I was a kid, except then it was a Frenchman instead of a Canadian, giving the storyteller an opportunity to affect an accent. Thanks to Carl for bringing this deserving joke back (I think he added the part about large breasts himself)!
Thought for today: Originality is the art of concealing your sources.
