Located inside:

- How many millions is putting your dork in a mousetrap worth?
- What's next for the gorilla pimp of assisted suicide?

"On Sunday, Mr. Kevorkian discounted his critics and said he did not care what his legacy might be in the assisted-suicide movement. 'I did it right,' he said.

A disturbing behavioural science experiment has begun. William Golding would have been thrilled to witness his plotlines played out in the darker corners of our online islands, where the savagery of avatars drives some to riot and others to assault each other." Is it irony that one of the leading programming firms mentioned in the article is "Endemol," i.e. "end 'em all?" [more]

"26." And 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. [more]
