"THe Annalect of Improbable Science" is one of the most Hatrackian organizations I've ever run across. While I can't afford their magazine, I do get their free e-mail. Its great.

I also heard on NPR the acceptance speech of the Peace Prize winner. It ran something like this:

(SPOILER)

"Thirty years ago I had only one dream. I wanted to teach the world to sing. So I invented the Karaoke machine. Now, after listening to people use it I still have but one great dream...'I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony. Cocacola!"
