    by the way, Jason Yungbluth's Deep Fried (the Clarissa strip from last month came from it) is wonderfully evil.

    Rockets from Russia: great Eastern Bloc science-fiction films
    We may think of Kubrick's 2001 as the great grown-up sci-fi film, but many beautiful, thoughtful cosmic adventures came out of the Eastern Bloc too

    Have aliens landed?

    Swedish sea treasure hunters have found something extraordinary: an 18m disc sunk in the bottom of the ocean, with what appears to be 300m long impact tracks leading to it.

    The disturbing comic ("Stuffed Friend") that Finagle linked too in the last Around the Net thread is part of a series:

    Link to foreign-language blog post listing Clarissa installments

    This guy's burrowing into family dysfunction makes Chris Ware look timid.

    I hope Clarissa gets a pistol someday.

    @StefanJ - I was looking forward to August.


    I think Clarissa needs us to stage an intervention. With chainsaws. And sulphuric acid.

    Internet Explorer users have lower IQ says study
    Internet Explorer users have a lower than average IQ, according to research by Consulting firm AptiQuant.
    The study gave web surfers an IQ test, then plotted their scores against the browser they used.
    IE surfers were found to have an average IQ lower than people using Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Users of Camino and Opera rated highest.

    Aaaaaand less than 24 hours later:

    If the BBC's big enough to admit it was duped, who am I to resist?
    Internet Explorer story was bogus
    A story which suggested that users of Internet Explorer have a lower IQ than people who chose other browsers appears to have been an elaborate hoax.
    A number of media organisations, including the BBC, reported on the research, put out by Canadian firm ApTiquant.
    It later emerged that the company's website was only recently set up and staff images were copied from a legitimate business in Paris. It is unclear who was behind the stunt.
