Looking for something to do?

5 days at home afforded me an opportunity to catch up on my web browsing. Here are some links that will test your knowledge... among other things.

MythBusters :: Fact or Fiction Quizzes - See what you thought you knew.. like was the red-suit Santa we know and love an invention of Coca-Cola?

CSA: The Confederate States of America - Sorry, Nate. This has nothing to do with truth. It's a mock-umentary about what would have happened if the South had won the war. It's playing a film festivals with a wider release planned for 2005.

Star Wars: The Official Site - The trailer to Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is online (if you didn't know already.) It's very cool; the best part is the footage from Episode IV - the original Star Wars movie.

South Knox Bubba has added a bunch of new blogs to the Rocky Top Brigade.

BBC - 50 things to eat before you die include yummy things like lobster, ribs, ice cream and the Cornish Pasty. I've eaten 31 of the 50 foods - I have no desire to eat guinea pig. Fine foods that did not make the list include corn bread dressing, sweet potato casserole, and Texas Toast. Then again, it is the BBC... they wouldn't be familiar with the Southern cuisine. To their credit, they did list ribs but not the general category of barbecue.

I guess that's because then they have to pick a style. Memphis style all the way!

What foods do you think were wrongfully excluded?
