Everyone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:
1. A site called 'Who represents' where you can find the name of the
agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name is:
2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange
advice and views:
3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island:
(What really gets me personally about this one is that they didn't click after they realised that the name www.penisland.COM was already taken...)
4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder:
5. Then of course, there's the Italian Power Generator company:
6. And then we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New
7. If you're looking for computer software, there's always:
8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website:
9. Then, of course, there's these brainless art designers, and their
10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website:

Woman forsakes her beautiful face(China Daily)
Updated: 2006-10-24 08:56
A young woman from Chongqing sought plastic surgery to make her face less attractive recently, after being crossed in love.
The 23-year-old woman's sweetheart left her weeks ago to stay with another woman. Although the two had been in love for six years, her ex-boyfriend feared that her too-beautiful face might lure many other men and thus he didn't feel safe staying with her.
She came to hate all men after being courted by many others, prompting her desire for the surgery. But the doctors refused to co-operate, saying she had a mental disorder and needed to seek help from psychotherapists.

Does your cat look like Adolf Hitler? Do you wake up in a cold sweat every night wondering if he's going to up and invade Poland? Does he keep putting his right paw in the air while making a noise that sounds suspiciously like "Sieg Miaow"? If so, this is the website for you.
And that website is www.catsthatlooklikehitler.com. A must visit for all you kitty lovers out there. I laughed for a full 10 minutes. You'd better laugh too at the sheer cuteness.

Holy Crap, will you look at that wheel!
PYONGYANG, North Korea-- The invention of the wheel by Glorious Leader Kim Jong-Il has sparked nationwide celebrations in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
"I wish those capitalist pigs could see us now," said Glorious Leader Kim Jong-Il while proudly staring at the crude, roundish, wheel-like thing before him. "Do you have any idea what this means for our great nation? Certainly we can use this contraption to increase the efficiency of the hundreds of already efficient steel mills and power plants we have all around this Glorious country!"
In every major city, government-commissioned military parades were held with mandatory public executions of traitors being performed at each one. Said traitor Rang Hui as the executioner placed his neck into a noose, "I guess I'm kind of sad that they're killing me so soon, but at least I know our great people will be able to move faster then they ever have before. With any luck, electric light will make its way here by the end of the decade. Then the People's Revolution can really begin!"
Stated Korean weapons expert Ling Song, "We are very excited about this new invention. We believe that using this 'wheel' will allow us to drive our tanks much more efficiently, as the current idea of setting them on cinder blocks has severely hampered our war efforts. I'm not supposed to tell you this, but some brilliant young minds in the department have even considered putting wheels on our nuc--" At this, a stray bullet fired from a capitalist pig-dog hit Song in the head, preventing him from finishing his Glorious statement. With any luck, Glorious Leader will repay this pig-dog with the power of the Glorious North Korean wheel.
"Our freedom has been taken to new heights!" wildly screamed Glorious Leader Kim Jong-Il as the first ever prototype of the wheel rolled down a hill into the DMZ. "You see those soldiers on that wall? They're walking! When we adapt these to our military vehicles, we'll run them and the rest of the imperialist Yankees over!"
"Bullshit," said Donald Rumsfeld at a press conference. "We used to think Iraq was capable of producing and using wheels, but we really fucked that one up. North Korea does not have the wheel. This is obviously just another stupid morale-boosting scheme that Kim Jong-Il has devised to keep his people happy."
When asked how he felt about this critical military development, George W Bush replied with, "The American people will unite together to face this new threat. We shall not bow down before the Axle of Evil and its many, many wheels. We will not be brought down. We will not be defeated. The Department of Homeland Security will be raising the Communist invasion threat level to crimson red and all objects more round than an octagon will be banned from entering the country."
Spies report that research to build iron weapons is currently underway in The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, but such reports should be taken with a grain of salt. Until recently it was thought that North Korea had a vast supply of sharp sticks, but UN Weapons Inspectors have found that North Korean sticks are, to quote the report, "Not really that sharp at all."
