This is Epth Nation

Epth is a state of mind, not a place. Reading this will give you a virtual drivers license in that state, but you'll still need to be 21 to purchase alcohol. And you can't get any there anyway, so stop asking.

News Not Related to Hurricanes

I'm tired of the way this hurricane is being covered. It seems like those well-dressed news people should be helping those poor people get out of flooded areas, but they just stick a microphone in their face. Is this what people have to go through to get their 15 minutes of fame? I mean, I know that a striking image can stir us to action, but do we need to see a professional person professionally telling us (in an impersonal way) how horrible things are while standing in front of a field of rubble? Do we need to see it on every station? I know that it would be ludicrous for a station not to cover it. But do they have to send people to stand right in the middle of it? Is that what journalism is these days?

I don't even know if I'm complaining about it, really. Something just seems off about the coverage, you know?

Anyway, here's the news I didn't get to yesterday that has to do with other things:

Olive Oil has been found to "Act like a painkiller." Apparently, 50g is equivalent to 1/10 of a dose of ibuprofin! Wow, that means you only have to drink half a kilogram of it to equal a whole pill, right? Who's going to do that, and why is this cluttering up the news?

How does a virus get programmed into an MP3 player before it ships from the factory? That's the question Creative Labs is asking, after recalling a buttload of their stupidly-named Zen Neeon 5GB gadgets. Apparently, these were shipped in Japan, so again, this news is worthless.

My Fantasy Football League starts this Sunday with it's deadly automated draft. Again, not important.

A story will be coming soon, as well as my recap of last Tuesday's My Super Sweet Sixteen, which was typically insane, but moreso.
