Fake Britain: A Map Of Fictional Locations | Londonist
Includes Leadworth, Scarfolk, Qwghlm, Beanotown, and, of course, Llareggub, but is unaccountably lacking in Little Bazeley and Little-Storping-in-the-Swuff, and I was hoping that it might finally tell me where the Village is.

Nobody knows what’s inside the newly found massive Egyptian sarcophagus | The Verge
26 Reasons For And Against Opening The Ominous Ancient Black Sarcopahgus. It took about four hours for this fascinating titbit of archaeological news to be turned into a listicle, which is a modern-day curse the Pharaohs could never have imagined. Contains more references to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK than you're likely to find in the Journal of Archaeological Science, but one can always hold out hope.

JUGGALOS | Federal Bureau of Investigation [PDF]
53 tantalizing pages have been redacted from the FBI report on the Safe Streets/Gang Unit's investigation into Juggalos. Of the bits that aren't classified, there's this burn: "Insane Clown Posse can't get its music on the radio, but claim to have 1 million devoted fans".

Rai stones | Wikipedia
"Because these stones are too large to move, buying an item with one simply involves agreeing that the ownership has changed. As long as the transaction is recorded in the oral history, it will now be owned by the person it is passed on to and no physical movement of the stone is required."

If you put a little pastry mohawk on the crust, you can call it a 'Kornish pasty' and circumvent regional protection legislation. Follow it up with Buns 'n' Roses. Bullets for my clementine, sautéed in Led Zeppelinseed oil, and limp bizkits.

Today is the 20th anniversary of 1997. People did different things then, like watch Brass Eye on its original broadcast. Looks like I've missed the screening of this (and the York one), but there's still... um... Sheffield? Halifax?

Hast Thou Slain the Jabberwock? | North of Reality
The otherwise unexplained "-y" in the title explains everything. The poem is related to, or of, the Jabberwock; it is Jabberwockesque. The text itself is the eternal Jabberwock, unsnickersnackable: it will always be here, ready to come around again with jaws that bite and claws that catch at a new beamish boy, forever, whenever he opens the book.
