Drew's not dead, just too drunk to FARK.

I didn't realize Columbia was offering courses in homebrewing these days.

Actually, only supposed to be the top three, don't know how that happened.

It really is sad what a huge percentage of my news and entertainment comes from FARK. But every time I turn on real news, I get depressed.

Nah, it goes like this: I sort through roughly 700-800 headlines in any given week, and pick about 30 headlines from Main and another 10 from each of the tabs, then let the admins/mods vote on their favorites. The top voted from them are the ones I select for the Headline of the Week, which means deselecting the ones that didn't get quite as many votes. Only the top 3 headlines in the subtabs are supposed to go, but somehow either I didn't deselect the low-vote ones on the geek tab or somehow it got hung up during processing. I'd wager it's my own User Error.

My first Headline of the Week!

Only 13 comments. What's the point of this resume?
Also: No voting?

Three are mine:

Tour de France cyclist Frank Schleck accidentally ate a bee or wasp during Sunday's time trial. Doctors say other than catching a slight buzz, he'll be fine

lame


New t-shirt built from piezoelectric film charges your cell phone by converting ambient sound to electricity. If you wear it to a Manowar show, you can power London for six hours

the odd headline that someone added their own joke to; i didn't submit it witht he Manowar joke. i don't know if i even added a joke to it.


Chloe Sevigny gets a grip on fashion, chokes up, says it sucks, she's 'not excited by contemporary fashion'', will debut her own fashion line. Now that's a mouthful

i know she's kinda homely at times but man i want to rail that ass. she has somethign that is so freaking sexy. but yeah, WHY DID SHE BLOW THAT DUDE

Dang, my 'Miss Brazil' post got some traction!

I'm kind of surprised to see my Taco Bell headline in there. I had a weirds sense I might get the nod this week, but I figured it'd be for the post-submission swapped-in dog-sex one.

In any case, it's an honor just to be nominated. :)
