Website Sells Pubic Lice 319

A British website called will help you prove that there is literally nothing you can't find online by selling you pubic lice. A disclaimer on the site says the creators "do not endorse giving people lice," and the lice are for "novelty purposes only." The company also boasts about a facility "where we do all of our parasite husbandry and carefully considered selective breeding." Three different packages are available: "Green package - One colony that can lay as many as 30 eggs for about $20. Blue package - Three colonies to share with your friends or freeze a batch or two for about $35. Red package - A vial of 'shampoo-resistant F-strain crabs' which can take up to two weeks to kill for about $52."

They tried to innovate instead of imitate.
Microsoft is amazing at imitation: word, excel, powerpoint, X-Box, C#, Windows, etc. When Microsoft imitates, they are second to none. What happens when they innovate, they end up with Vista, instead of copying OS X with 7.

My all-time favorite creations are the Zune and Clippy.

The analogy is good, because once you learn how to swim, you can never drown.
