I think protesters are really just into bondage and exhibitionism. They dress up in crazy outfits, parade around in public, and wait for the inevitable time when the police come and put them in plastic handcuffs.

Play Video Games, Win Money
That's the slogan of YouPlayGameswhere players 18 years and older can win cash or prizes while playing against each other in the online World War II action game Return to Castle Wolfenstein. "If two players want to play a game for $100 a life, then we'll open up a server for that," he said. Grove said prizes eventually will include games, vacations and money. YouPlayGames' system remains in beta-testing but should be released later this month. [source]

Trade of the Week: Contract on Saddam
I recently wrote about why is one of the coolest sites I've seen; you can now access my review here. One of the coolest things they have are the Saddam Futures. They have both March and June contracts. You bet for or against the likelihood of Saddam being ruler of Iraq at the end of those respective months. Read the description and then go through the trading demo.

Update: A sudden price drop seen in the market for predictions on Saddam's date of demise - might indicate gamblers suddenly think he may make it past March 31st. If you click on IRAQ.SADDAM.MAR03 you can see a chart on the history of how money has been invested on whether "Saddam Hussein is not President/Leader of Iraq by 31st March 2003". In the last few days the graph there shows a sharp decline in the percentage chance that he will be gone soon - from up in the 70's to around the teens now.

Another article.

You can also trade on the "Security Alert Level March 2003".

off topic but entertainment related nonethteless
Evidence that shows Michael Moore is a liar and Bowling For Columbine is a deceitful propaganda piece not a documentary. To think that it will probably win the oscar for best documentary is sad.

Great Fake Puma Ads
Gawker has just declared its intention to leave the images up. In an email to The Men's Room, Nick Denton from Gawker explained the Puma threat is ridiculous, not only because of the First Amendment protection, but also because's going to draw even more attention to the blow-job ads:
First, because it's going to draw even more attention to the blow-job ads. (Maybe Puma's being ironic and *really* clever, but I don't think so.)

Second, because the letter says the ads are "sexually suggestive" -- which I thought was the whole point of fashion advertising.

And, third, most relevant for weblogs: Puma says that a blog is "not a media outlet", and therefore not protected on First Amendment grounds.

We're leaving the pictures up.
