Oh, the threat that is bottled water! First it was intellectually-challenged supermodels leading the fight, now it’s ethically-challenged mayors that are tangled up in bottled water’s vicious web of lies and deceit (via a reader’s email).

For sale: One super-cool, super-stealthy top-secret Navy test ship. One owner, low mileage. Who needs a houseboat when you’ve got this? (via Days of Our Trailers) I’d almost give up my insane dream lifelong ambition of owning an M163A1 PIVADS for some thing like that. Almost.
