The privilege of murder

A bunch of authors are auctioning off the right to be mentioned in their next books, to benefit the First Amendment. Stephen King’s offer:

One (and only one) character name in a novel called CELL, which is now in work and which will appear in either 2006 or 2007. Buyer should be aware that CELL is a violent piece of work, which comes complete with zombies set in motion by bad cell phone signals that destroy the human brain. Like cheap whiskey, it’s very nasty and extremely satisfying. Character can be male or female, but a buyer who wants to die must in this case be female. In any case, I’ll require physical description of auction winner, including any nickname (can be made up, I don’t give a rip).

By any other name…

Products the world probably doesn’t need

Found this in This Old House magazine: The home urinal. Why? ” The Lloyd Residential Urinal puts an end to the age-old battle over the toilet seat…” Yes, and what housewife wouldn’t rather have a urinal in the decor, complete with deodorant cake and a shelf for your beer?
