  1. Saabaru

    I may have noted before that my favorite car company, Saab, and my favorite car model, a Subaru WRX, have been merged together as one in the new Saab 9-2X. It's true and there's two truths: 1) I can't afford to buy one right now. 2) It'd only be better if it were a hybrid.

    Anyhow. The Independent has a good overview of the new Saab. It's written by someone who clearly understands Saab's history, and unique place as an automaker.

  2. Reserve Your Copy Today!

    A Pop up ad from Catholic OnlineOK, silly story to tell. I was perusing Coudal Partners' website, and in their "About" section, they has a link to their "patron saint."

    Well, I had just disabled my pop-up blocker in Safari so that I could enjoy some sample tracks off of Phish's new album. Sure enough, when I clicked on the patron saint link, which lead to Catholic Online (catholic.org) I got a pop up. Yes, God sent me a pop-up ad he wanted me to see.

    As disturbing as that is alone, the content of the pop-up was even more disturbing:

    Catholic Online is the best way to reserve you {sic} pre-release copy of Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" DVD/VHS.

    Order as many as you want with NO LIMITS

    I took a screen shot for your displeasure.

  3. 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

    The National Trust for Historic Preservation has released its 11 Most Endangered Historic Places for 2004.

    Included on the list is the State of Vermont, under siege again by the Wal-Mart Corporation.

    Also, Nine Mile Canyon, called "the world's longest art gallery" for its 10,000 Native American rock-art images, is threatened by the Bush Administration's plans for extensive oil and gas exploration. Nine Mile Canyon is located in a remote part of east central Utah. The canyon is said to contain the highest concentration of monochromatic prehistoric rock art in North America. Nine Mile Canyon is also an area with many diverse historic sites from the days of pioneer settlement, such as stagecoach stops, ranch buildings and settler’s cabins.

  4. GreaseCar!

    I saw this company in a small news tidbit on the news today, check them out! GreaseCar.

    GreaseCar is a company that sells vegetable oil conversion kits for diesel powered automobiles. It's a dual fuel system, that uses regular diesel along side regular vegetable oil to power the car. Where do you get the oil to run on? Most restaurants will give it to you for free, since waste frying oil usually costs them money to remove. You simply collect it, filter it, and put it in your veggie-tank. Regular diesel fuel is still used to start the vehicle, and to shut it down. The car can also run exclusively on regular diesel when vegetable oil is unavailable.

    If I had a diesel powered car, I'd be getting in contact with them right now!

    Note from Jake: Drivers Eye Vegetable Oil As Cheap Fuel - Article from Associated Press, references to GreaseCar and Weston, CT, the state Brian and I grew up in.
