And a few more links:

1. So Manny Ramirez was using steroids. Big surprise. But what is interesting is that journalists have known for months that this scandal would break and have kept it quiet.

2. Using the Konami code at ESPN's site used to activate unicorns and rainbows?! Here's a list of websites that are impacted by the Konami code. Via.

3. Forget Jon Voight's machinations. Here's how the NOC list really gets in the open. An agent puts an unencrypted memory stick in her purse and then forgets the purse on public transit. The mistake (and hopefully it was a mistake) forced MI6 to abandon a major drug operation. Via these sites.

4. Did you know Hugh Jackman used to be so skinny he was called "chicken legs"? His trainer showed him how to bulk up. His trainer also boasts that Baz Luhrman complained during the filming of Australia that Jackman was getting too big. You can read about his fitness program at Men's Fitness.
