1/23    Stephane Peterhansel wins Dakar Rally - NASCAR - Yahoo! Sports:
        5411 miles in 46 hrs.  That's 118mph average.  How can someone drive
        118mph average for 46 hrs, off road?

1/23    Coin shortage could turn pennies to nickels
        Can they really do that?  Doesn't it just cause inflation or
        depreciation of the US Dollar which defeats the purpose?

1/23    are there any plain, VERY SIMPLE tv listings online?  tv guide
        crashes on me and yahoo's tv listings are fucked up.  is it that
        \_ I've started to use aol's tv listings:
           Another option is, but that is digital channels only.

1/23    "China weapons test shakes up world view"
        \_ I don't even know why people making a such big deal of this for
           the following reasons:
           - virtually all space program are run by the military.  What made
             China's space program so opaque again?
           - what China has done allegedly is something US and USSR has done
             in the 1980's.  That is 25+ years later.  What is a big deal?
           - China has tried this 4+ times and this is the first time it
             hit something.  There is a huge chance that this is nothing but
             a non-repeatable lucky shot.
           - China has begged US to sign a treaty banning the arming of space
             but US refused and said US need all means necessary to protect
             itself.  Don't you remember any of that yourself?
           \_ It's a big deal because only US and USSR had the capability to
              do this previously.  Also, there are concerns that the
              politicians don't have enough control over the military.
