Ahz yeahz

Stolen from today's (guest-written) three-pointer:
Trivia question: who was the last NBA MVP before Steve Nash's two-year run? Answer: the guy who dominated tonight.
That's right, ladies and germs, Kevin Garnett drops 44 to douse the white-hot Phoenix Suns. They used to be on a 17-game winning streak and probably penciled in the T-Wolves as an easy victory. Not the case. I'm really liking this Timberwolves team right now, new coach and all. Obviously, KG is the best player on the planet, but we've got some other guys who are fun to watch as well (I'm thinking about building a shrine to Craig Smith, who is the second coming of Charles Barkley, but without the yapping). If the playoffs started today, we'd have the #8 seed, meaning we'd have to face off against the best team in the West, Dallas. I think we can make a run at a higher spot, but we need some overachieving teams to drop a few slots (I'm looking at you, Lakers and Jazz).

Also, my second-favorite NBA team made a huge trade not too long ago, dumping troublemaker G Stephen Jackson and the re-acquired forward Al Harrington for the overpaid (yet still decent) Troy Murphy, 2nd-year C Ike Diogu (who I really like), and the "How is HE still in the League?" guy, Mike Dunleavy. I like the trade for the Pacers, who now have a TON of big men with many different skillsets, some good young swingmen (Daniels and Granger), and, erm, Jamaal Tinsley, who has had a very, uhhhh... injury-free year so far. Yes, that's being nice to Jamaal.

In non-NBA news, I found these maps of relationships in the Middle East. You can drag things around and see how it changes things, if you're into the whole visual-learning thing.

I also added a few more links on the left side.

Also, Windows Vista is coming out today. I'd wait before buying it if I were you. Also seen on CNN TV this morning: Castro death parties planned in Cuba (these are different from death SQUADS), Tyra Banks is apparently really fat, so there were multiple stories about that, including one online which asks "Are we taking the Tyra Banks story too far? Click to watch video", Ari Fleisher is a Dolphins fan (and leaked the identity of Valerie Plame to Dan Marino - kidding), and my personal favorite: Police Use Stun Gun on Greased, Naked Student ("Frightened Students Huddle in Corner!").

Miami is supposedly ready to kick off a big party in their stadium for Castro. Do you think Tehran is going to have a party in 08'?

Having his own sex aid gives him the chance
to explore toys without any pressure or fear
of judgement and in time, shows him how fun and innocuous sex aids can be.
One was younger than me, but they both had the meaty cold-climate build that puts years

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
