Führerschein für Spaghetti-Anbeter

Geduld und Zähigkeit zahlen sich aus. Erst für den Österreicher Niko Alm, dem nach dreijährigem Kampf erlaubt wurde, auf seinem Führerscheinfoto ein Nudelsieb zu tragen. Grund: Das Küchengerät sei eine religiöse Kopfbedeckung und Alm als Anhänger des „Fliegenden Spaghetti-Monsters“ zu dessen Tragen auch auf offiziellen Fotos berechtigt. Nun hat es ihm ein Deutscher nachgetan. In der beschaulichen Uckermark akzeptierte die zuständige Fahrerlaubnisbehörde ein ähnliches Ansinnen von „Bruder Spaghettus“. Der fromme Nudelanbeter berichtet: „Hier wurde mein Antrag nicht nur entgegen genommen, hier wurde nach Vorlage der Bestätigung, dass es sich bei der Kirche des Fliegenden Spaghettimonsters Deutschland e.V. um eine gemeinnützige Körperschaft handelt, und nach einer Kopie der selbigen, völlig unkompliziert der normale Ablauf in Gang gesetzt, und nach nicht einmal vier Wochen war der Führerschein fertig.“

Nicholson fail

August 10, 2011

Nicholson was brought up believing that his grandparents, John Joseph Nicholson (a department store window dresser in Manasquan, New Jersey) and Ethel May Rhoads (a hairdresser, beautician and amateur artist in Manasquan), were his parents. Nicholson only discovered that his „parents“ were actually his grandparents and his sister was in fact his mother in 1974, after a journalist for TIME magazine who was doing a feature on Nicholson informed him of the fact.[8] By this time, both his mother and grandmother had died (in 1963 and 1970, respectively).

Alt-Tab order of Windows 7

Februar 23, 2011

I can’t get used to the win 7 alt-tab order, gladly there’s a way to turn it back to the old style (alt tab goes to the last active program).

This has been bugging me for weeks. The absolute random order in which Windows 7 puts your windows when you’re doing heavy alt-tab work between applications. It seems like most of the time it’s exactly opposite of what you want; „This was not my idea!“, it places the last application you worked on at the end of the list, with 20 windows open, this is a problem.

Solution here:

Darwanian M&Ms

August 1, 2009

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels.

Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the „loser,“ and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round.

I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.

Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment.

When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to

M&M Mars, A Division of Mars,
Inc., Hackettstown,
NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A.,

along with a 3×5 card reading, „Please use this M&M for breeding purposes.“

This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this „grant money.“ I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we
will discover the True Champion.

There can be only one.
