Max Biaggi whining again

Remember what Max Biaggi said last year when he became the official Honda rider? I will never blame the bike again

Guess how he explains the bad test results in Jerez:

“We arrived from Barcelona with a good set up, but here in Jerez the bike did not respond anymore,” explained Biaggi. “My experience let me tell that I know the set up differences between these two tracks. I did all a rider can do: I tried all the suspension and chassis solutions and I rode over the limit but it didn’t work. The lap time remains too slow for my standard. At this point it all depends on engine management, power output and electronic controls. It’s not up to me. I hope the answer will come soon.”

Toilet paper books and personalization

In Japan you can now buy the Toilet-Book:

This got me wondering if there are anybody offering personalized toilet paper, and was happy to find several:

You can have some fun putting text on a toilet paper roll but you can go wild with photos if you hate your ex or your boss.

ActivePDF sold my e-mail address to spammers

Like everyone else I hate spam with a passion. I manage to keep the spam level reasonably low as I use a different email alias for each subscription, forum, etc. When a company sells my address to a spammer I know who the bastards were and I just delete all mails to the spammed alias.

In this case the bastards are ActivePDF as they sold my e-mail address:

Your privacy policy ( clearly states:
Once you register, or otherwise provide activePDF with your personal information, will not share that information with third parties without your permission.

How do you explain that I receive SPAM mail to the e-mail address I registered at your site ( As you can tell from the e-mail address, I use a unique address for each company I deal with so I can recognize who sells it to spammers for profit.

The latest spam mail was sent from "" with the title "Complimentary Subscription to eWEEK".

Please make sure that my address is removed from the list of the spammers you sold it to.

Thank you,

Look before you sit

Beware when your trouser snake is not the only snake in the bathroom:

It was almost 9 a.m. Tuesday and Shannon Scavotto already was running late for work when he opened the toilet to throw out a tissue.

Inside was a snake as thick as a child's wrist, its diamond-shaped head sticking 10 inches out of the toilet.

St. Petersburg Times has the full story
