Johnny Cash - Mugshot


Intrigued by the chipper (creepy) smile Tom Delay is sporting in his recent mugshot, I headed over to The Smoking Gun's Mugshot Gallery to check out the other famous mugshots they have there. Of course, my favorite was Johnny Cash, but my favorite description was the one for Sid Vicious:
Sid Vicious, bassist for the Sex Pistols, was arrested by New York police for the October 1978 murder of girlfriend Nancy Spungen. Sid's subsequent drug overdose spared him the indignity of a homicide trial.
The indignity of a homocide trial, heh.

A couple of stories found via digg.com:

First, and with a hat tip to drjekyll, a story about a 30,000 calorie sandwich [digg.com link]. You know a sandwhich is gonna be good when one of the many ingredients is 2 corn dogs. The sandwhich topped in a 6.5 pounds and took 12 hours to eat.

Next, and probably not anywhere nearly as disturbing, Scientists build world's first single-molecule car [digg.com link]. Crank that he is, sidelobe says it's really more like a roller skate than a car, but it's still cool.
