Underwear snobbery, Gore v. Lohan, and a big rock hits Norway

Al Gore tickles Jay Leno’s funny bone.

“It’s not all fun,” Gore remarked. “For instance, I have this huge thing with Lindsay Lohan now. When Leno asked how the feud started, Gore responded, “she knows what she did.”

A record-setting meteorite slammed into Norway on Wednesday. It’s presumed to be the largest to hit Norway at “considerably larger” than 198 lbs.

As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.

A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.

And Slate has posted “an underpants manifesto”.

It’s come to my attention that there are some men out there—even a few friends of mine—who’ve not yet switched to boxer briefs. These are otherwise intelligent fellows who, either through ignorance or recalcitrance, begin each day by pulling on (shudder) traditional boxers or (double-shudder) briefs. I feel great pity for these men. Because the irrefutable truth is that boxer briefs—a knit, mid-thigh-length compromise between boxer and brief—are the ultimate male netherwear. The sooner you accept this, the happier your crotch will be.
