Friday's Food For Thought - 4/11/08

Welcome to another Friday! and another Friday's Food for Thought! Where we give you a brief examination of what is interesting and unusual about the world for your mental stimulation. We hope you enjoy another thought-filled Friday!

From the BBC NEWS: Animal dung coffee at £50 a cup.

"A gourmet coffee blended from animal droppings is being sold at a London department store for £50 per cup." To benefit cancer research.

They're not completely crazy, just mostly crazy.

Now then, a team quote! This quote supposedly originated with British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, but gained great popularity in the States thanks to the one and only Mark Twain. It is dedicated to all of the scientists, politicians, and statisticians who help make the world go round:

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

And finally, a video dedicated to tv news reporters. What wonderful moments of humor you bring us daily:

Have a great Friday!

Dude, what the crap?

(Pun very much intended.)

That is seriously gross.

Yeah, I read about the coffee. It seems fairly interesting. In the story I read, there was an excellent sentence: "It is also thought that their gastric juices may add to the flavour."

And I had seen most of the news anchor mishaps, but they're still hilarious. I love the old guy with the dog, as well as the guy who gets hit by the sled and does a flip.
