Ten of the most expensive bicycles on Earth for you to gawk at.Ten of the most expensive bicycles on Earth for you to gawk at.

Yes folks, a bicycle made of gold and diamonds will only set you back about $60,000. Turns out that very same bike was actually sold for $75,000 at a charity auction according to the source article. Someone really wanted that bike.

Thinking of purchasing a Dell Mini laptop with the sole purpose of putting Mac OS X on it? Apple would prefer it if you just bought a laptop from them instead. Now pony up.

Although not technically a sitcom; Jesse's caffeine pill freakout from Saved by the Bell is still a personal favorite.

Daily Grind: Hoarse

Name: Vin (aka house of flu)
How Vin feels today: Hoarse @ 7:04:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue loading up on various vitamins and anti-flu type medicines. Remind self to get flu shot prior to flu season actually starting next year.

Music Stuck in Head: Stomp the House / The Fresh Beat Band
Thank you Nick Jr. Who can I flog for putting this show in the face of my three year old?

Stuff to do today:

  • Apologize for limited posting of weekdaily links, influenza has taken hold of my entire family
  • Be better prepared next season, actually get flu shot
  • Launch various work projects from home
  • Check out some of the latest and greatest gadgets whilst I've been sick
  • That new Apple mouse looks even more ergonomically uncomfortable than the previous version
  • On the other hand, that Barnes and Noble e-reader is quite enticing
  • Note that above product actually requires desire to read publications with more than thirty pages
  • Give up, continue flu detox program

Ah, the days of Danger Mouse. Batman Beyond (also on the list) was a pretty awesome (and suprisingly bad-ass) series as well. Those looking for a nostalgic dose of it should check out the movie, Return of the Joker.
