Priceless!

Goodbye Peyton and Lucas (or - "FINALLY!")

It looks like Chad Michael Murray might not be the only longtimer bidding adieu to One Tree Hill come Season 7.
Not long after the CW announced another pick-up for the serial, The Chad's leading lady, Hilarie Burton, issued what for all intents and purposes is a goodbye message to her fans.
All but confirming an online report that she, like Murray, won't be continuing her run, Burton says in a video posted to her Wilmington, North Carolina-based production company's website, "I want to clear up one thing that's very important to me. I want everyone to know how much I love Peyton Sawyer, and my crew.... I don't want anyone to think I'm abandoning a place that's been very good to me."

Will the real "Prawo Jazdy" please stand up

DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish police have solved the mystery of a Polish recidivist who clocked up 50 traffic offences on different addresses and who was never caught, after one officer noticed his name meant driving licence in Polish.

An internal police memo cited by Irish papers on Thursday said officers taking details of Polish traffic offenders had been mistakenly using "Prawo Jazdy," printed in the top right corner of the driving licence, as the holder's name.

"Prawo Jazdy is actually the Polish for driving licence and not the first and surname on the licence," the police memo dated June 2007 said. "It is quite embarrassing to see the system has created Prawo Jazdy as a person with over 50 identities."

A police spokesman declined to comment on the reports.

About 200,000 Polish people flocked to Ireland during the boom years of its "Celtic Tiger" economy but a poll in November indicated a third of them planned to leave due to recession.

The greatest Valentine's gift... EVER!!!

from: http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/interactive/a090/?cpg=cj

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero... you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we've determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don't understand? Well luckily for you we've created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.
Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000...). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey... you're depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you're fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you'll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

Dr. Horrible 2?!?

"There is talk about a Dr. Horrible sequel," Nathan Fillion said in a group interview last week in Universal City, Calif., where he was promoting his upcoming ABC series Castle. "It's actually in one of the songs on the Dr. Horrible DVD commentary music." The recently released home-video version of Dr. Horrible featured a musical commentary track.
