Oscar the cat, named after the delicious weiner, lives at the dementia unit at the Steere House Nursing And Rehabilitation Centre in Rhode Island, and he seems to have the uncanny ability to predict the death of the residents to within four hours.

In order to promote the upcoming Simpsons movie, 7-Eleven has converted eleven U.S. stores (and one in Canada to be announced today) in to Kwik-E-Marts. Inside you are able to buy Buzz Cola, Squishees, Frosted KrustyO’s and Simpsons inspired donuts. 7-Eleven should just ditch their name and do this to every store.

The New York Times recently did a neat photo essay comparing real-life gamers to their in-game avatars.

Oh sure, you’re cynical and jaded, and you’ve heard the music from Super Mario Bros. played on the piano, on the guitar, and even on the drums. Nothing can impress you.

The Adventures of Mr. Lee

Mr. Perthold attached a small camera around the neck of his pet cat, Mr. Lee, to see where he went and what he did when he disapeared during the day. And it is a magical world of cat friends, secret hiding spots, and (omigosh!) snakes! It’s a world almost as magical as my world of cubicle walls, LCD monitors, fluorescent hum, and… and… *cries*
