A legend is born

nevenatwork: Crash sucked
Billy Nelson: the oscar is bull anyway
nevenatwork: yes. very much so
Billy Nelson: i heard one time that some actress, i don't know who, used hers as a door stop at her beach house.
nevenatwork: ava gardner or hepburn, probably
Billy Nelson: lets post it on wiki, then it will be true.
nevenatwork: she used it as a door stop, and one night she woke up in bed, smelling smoke coming from the other room. She got up to her house being engulfed in flames. She ran to the door, which was wide open thanks to the gold figurine jammed under it. She made it out just as the gas tank exploded, sending her face first in the sand. She turned around and saw nothing but ruins where her Malibu home had been... and the Oscar, unscratched. And that's how she learned the true meaning of the Academy Awards. And that's why it was the best summer ever.

Carl Sagan's apple pie recipe

Here's an old recipe, tried and true.

Carl Sagan's Apple Pie
(Click for a larger, legible pic on Flickr, or get a printable 4x6 recipe card)

I often bring up Sagan's quote when people say they've "built a PC from scratch" and such. Of course, I don't say it to make a philosophical or cosmological point of any sort, but to be the sort of linguistic jackass you know me as.
