Jesus fucking christ. Why the fuck did I ever crawl out to work today? I mean, wtf? I had every legal right to stay at home. And now I am here, doped to the eyeballs, still in pain, right side of the head swollen and hurting in weird places like the ear and forehead, mildly nauseated and dizzy, with mild cognitive retardation and the ensuing typing difficulties and occasional stabbing headaches. I am definately staying at home tomorrow. Gah. Fuck this piece of shit job.

That’s about it from me so far, so hey, some links.

A couple of cage fighters (you know, fighting without rules, one man enters two men leave two men enter one man leaves sorta thing that is show on late night tv) put on dresses and went for a night on the town in Britain. Why? I dunno. Maybe for a lark, maybe they’ve met in the rink and fell madly in love a-la Brüno (UPDATE: turns out it was a stag night. Sigh. I liked my Brüno version better), but there they were, in full drag, walking in a yob-filled street. What followed was pretty hilarious. Or, well, depending on who’s side you’re looking at it from. If you can’t be bothered with reading the article, here’s a CCTV recording of the beat-down. Like any real fight, it’s over it two seconds:

Another spectacular vid is of about half a million bats streaming out of a cave in New Mexico. In infrared! Those interested in additional facts and the background story can read the Wired article, those not-so-much can just watch the footage below:

Ok, and for the last vid, here’s this kid, right, pushing his shit on the streets of Mumbai. The usual case, extreme poverty, lack of education, something we all know and love to exploit. The difference here is that this kid picked up 10 different languages in a few years, with a decent accent, no less! Brilliant little bugger. Here’s a link to the CNNGo story, as well as the videos:

The following clip is of the same guy, but later, at age 15. His language skills have now developed well beyond the sale pitch! Amazing fellow. Hope he goes far…
