I added a second hard drive to my TiVo today. I have one of the early ones, which only had a 14-hour capacity at the basic recording level. Its new capacity is much, much higher.

Best: 43 hrs, 49 min
High: 71 hrs, 3 min
Medium: 94 hrs, 8 min
Basic: 159 hrs, 12 min

Pope condemns sarcasm. Words fail me.

(Via Ted Barlow)
This is an appalling accusation I hadn't seen before, from one of George W. Bush's childhood friends:

''We were terrible to animals,'' recalled Mr. Throckmorton, laughing. A dip behind the Bush home turned into a small lake after a good rain, and thousands of frogs would come out.

''Everybody would get BB guns and shoot them,'' Mr. Throckmorton said. ''Or we'd put firecrackers in the frogs and throw them and blow them up.''

Torturing small animals in childhood is, of course, one of the classic warning signs of a serial killer, because children who lack empathy towards animals often grow into adults who lack empathy towards people. And Bush has never lacked for lack of empathy. Remember when he mocked a woman on death row?

If I were in a Buffy musical:

They took...the stitches...OUT!!!!!

(Chorus: They took the stitches out!)
