Today's Straight Dope

For those that don't read The Straight Dope, its an old weekly newspaper article from Chicago where a really smart (cynical, funny, etc) journalist (Cecil) has a whole slew of researchers and they answer pretty much any question ever asked (go through the archives... anything from 'could a plane take off from a treadmill going the opposite direction' to the 'nutritional breakdown of semen').For those that don't read The Straight Dope, its an old weekly newspaper article from Chicago where a really smart (cynical, funny, etc) journalist (Cecil) has a whole slew of researchers and they answer pretty much any question ever asked (go through the archives... anything from 'could a plane take off from a treadmill going the opposite direction' to the 'nutritional breakdown of semen').

Today's article will be a classic.... discussions on what happens when werewolves and vampires fight, how much blood a vampire needs daily, and sex with zombies.... funny stuff!

I love The Straight Dope! Remember their TV series several years ago? I think it only ran for a season.

I've been getting the weekly mailer since I can remember, too.

Sorry, I'm a semi-noob when it comes to SD... only been going to the internet page for about 4 years, now.
No emails or anything, just a daily stop when browsing the net...

If you subscribe to their mailer, you'll get a summary every Friday.

Speaking of funny stuff on the net, I haven't heard from this guy [thesneeze.com] in awhile; I am worried he may have finally found something he really shouldn't have eaten.

Bah I take it back; after looking at his main page, he apparently has just taken a break from eating weird stuff for a bit :-)
