Pearls (before Swine)
(reverted to the state of March, 19)
This should be a section of links to pages that contain really interesting,
high-quality contents. Strangely, (strangely?) there is nearly
nothing to be found here. There is enough material out there that is funny,
interesting, obscure, or otherwise noteworthy; but it takes more to be a
(04.04.95) The responses to the Wile E. Coyote question
are hilarious. Everything from existentialist psychoanalysis (``The Road
Runner is not real. He doesn't exist at all, except as a resident of the
Coyote's hostile, barren internal mental landscape. '') to capitalism's
Pyrrhus victory over communism (``We think communism is dead and
buried. We think we have succeeded in killing the Roadrunner. We have
purchased our ACME anvil and we have dropped it on the communist
threat. Now, I suggest we take a moment to look around and notice that we
are standing on a little piece of cliff suspended in mid-air.'').

H0M3 PAG3!!! is, well, hysterical. Some old jokes were recycled in a
creative new fashion (e.g., in the credit card rating menu). The pages
B1FF links to are quite, well, interesting, too.
(22.02.95) Stev0's Rant of the Week (there is
an archive of old

Home Page has everything i crave: genuine material (instead of lotsa lame
links) and an unusual thematic focus.
The Superguy Home
Page. Superguy is [..] ``a collection of ongoing storylines based in a
single shared universe. This is a universe with super heroes, super
villains, nefarious plots, cunning plans and more undead talk show hosts
than you can shake a stick at. It is silly. It is funny. It is strange. It
is a place where SPAM can transport you to an alternate reality, a place
where Hell(tm) is a corporate entity with its own cable TV network, and a
place where the Buffalo Bills could actually win the Superbowl.''

Logical Map as of June 1, 1981.
(05.03.95) The Cherry
Corporation, especially Cherry
Cherry Communications' "mini-mags". The description of the "Pocket
Guide To Theory" cracked me up. Strangely (strangely?), it even
provides quite useful definitions! (I checked maybe a dozen). And then
there is this up-to-date description of the German intellectual scene:
Germany has enjoyed a rich history of intellectual debate. The German
dialectic tradition is still in full effect, as many a long night are spent
with a stein of good beer in one hand, and a book in the other

Booth. (Havent looked at the scroll of sin yet, it's so damn
large. oops, profanity.)

still don't want any part of it.)
