Some motorists travelling Highway 104 toward Truro claim the statue looks like it has an appendage not intended by its sculptor emerging from its midriff.

Sending Junk To The Junk Mailers

Mailing a tireLegal Revenge Against Spam Snail-Mailers:

Better Movie Endings

How It Should Have Ended creates animated alternative endings to movies, usually with a much better ending than the original. Their Seven remake was predictable but funny.

They offer their movies in .wmv format and as torrent files. The best torrent client I’ve used is Azureus; it’s highly customizable and, more importantly, easy to use.
