Religious jokes, Katrina damage photos, Zen antidotes, and Takk

What's the difference between a priest and a pimple?

A pimple waits until you’re 13 before coming on your face.

And that one didn’t even get top place in the ‘most offensive’ category. Heh.

More diversions: satellite imagery, or any high-quality aerial photos of anywhere, hold a fascination for most people. Since Jurricane Katrina reduced the Gulf Coast to a body-strewn wasteland, there has been no shortage of people who want to check out their home or just the comparative damage in general — I linked to Google Earth’s imagery a few posts ago. But the reason Google was able to integrate damage photos with previous photography was through the hard work of the NOAA, which has made aerial imagery available for free despite the harrowing stories coming out of the region.

Finally, some Zen Koan, and Takk, a new album by four-of-a-kind Icelandic group Sigur Rós, which I bought today in a fit of gay abandon.
