Twenty liars who kept lying. And got away with it...for a while, at least. (From Cracked)
Fifty years of "Alice's Restaurant" -- and how Arlo Guthrie feels about it. (From Rolling Stone magazine) If you've never heard this very funny, thought-provoking song, click below. Settle in first -- it takes almost 20 minutes.

"Saving history by stealing it." Or in artistic terms, copying it. I'm still not sure what to think about this angle...
A Wisconsin farmer dies, along with 16 of his cattle...in a freak methane poisoning accident. This one is really strange.

What's today's cooks can learn from yesterday's tenement cooks. Some real-life examples here. (Thanks, Kris Driessen, for forwarding this on from the New York Post.)
Have a great week. Stay sane.
