Out of the Blue

Well it's the fourth of July, which is also known as Independence Day here in the U.S., as we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, and of course, Jeff Goldblum thwarting those aliens with a Macintosh computer virus. We had more fireworks last night, of course, but Hudson the wonder dog's reaction wasn't as severe as the night before, so we can hope she's feeling a bit desensitized. Of course the festivities tonight should be louder, but we can always hope. Anyway, here's hoping all of you who are celebrating have a fun and safe time.

Independent Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Palisade Guardian 3.
Effing Worms 2.
Stories: Fireworks can injure your eyes - experts. I want to be an expert too!
Woman glued to Walmart toilet seat in Kentucky. Thanks Boing Boing.
The Bristle Brush as Barbecue Hazard. Seems careless. Thanks j.c.f.
Science: CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson. Thanks Jim.
Follow-up: xkcd- Home Organization.

Wow.. that's a bit scary. I mean isn't using wire brushes to clean grills kind of commonplace?

Yeh. The news story made me think... as it is I don't know how much I would pay attention to the grill after doing a quick cleanup job... so what are the chances that a newbie cook at a restaurant would.

They've been used for years/decades/whatever though I'd never heard a story about it until last month. Perhaps this is a case of "they don't make them like they used to?"

After all, the news stations have ALWAYS loved shocking local news.
