(Can't say I'm excited about the movie. The robot looks like a combination of two of my least favorite robots - - ROB and Short Circuit, and I'm apparently the only person on the planet who hated Ratatouille.)

Slashdot has some funny ideas (mixed amongst a lot of bitter comments):
The trick is to do things she and her friends like in unexpected and subtle ways. For example, arrange the appetizers in the Fibonacci series (or get really daring and stack them vertically using Pascal's triangle). Use geometry to decorate (especially Pi)
Don't forget drinking games: It's not that hard, you just pick a card and drink half the sum of the prime factors in fingers. If you get it wrong, you have to stand on your head and recite pi backwards (as hard as it sounds.)

I don't really know what this is. I was able to figure out that it's the cover of "Monster Movie," the debut album by Can from 1969, but not much else. You can sample several tracks at Amazon. There's a bit of information in the Wikipedia entry. Image spotted here.
George Bush: "Senator McCain's not here. He probably wanted to distance himself from me a little bit. You know, he's not alone. Jenna's moving out too. Hillary Clinton couldn't get in because of sniper fire and Senator Obama's at church."
Craig Ferguson, host of CBS' "Late Late Show": "Vice President Dick Cheney is already moving out of his residence. It takes longer than you think to pack up an entire dungeon."

Luckily these Super Mario Singing Glow Stars showed up from Japan at just the right time. Put one of these little beauties on your desk and anytime you need protection just hit the button on the back. The Star flashes on and off and plays the invincibility song just like the Super Mario Brothers game. Voilà! instant invincibility for the duration of the snappy little tune.
(Of course, what I'd really like is a mallet that played the Smash Bros. music.)
