Geographers have now mapped occurrences of the seven deadly sins for the US. Not surprisingly, the East Coast seems to be a hotbed of evilness, and the Midwest, a hotbed of goody-two-shoes.

Geek-box prodigy

I must confess - I have a strange fascination with unlikely music being played on the accordion (really, any instrument that just seems to clash with the idea of the music, like Star Wars on a harp or on bagpipes, but I digress). Now, normally, I would keep this fascination to myself, but I enjoyed this video so much, I had to share. This is an amazingly wonderful rendition of one of my absolutely favorite pieces of music ever, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

Headline: Russian wizards seek trade union: report

Quote: The report added that Russia's "extrasensory" practitioners -- psychics, faith-healers, witches, magicians and so on -- had reported an increase in their workload in connection with the global economic crisis.
