Sunday, August 24th — Blue Politicians and London

August 24, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that there’s this crazy politician from Montana named Stan Jones, an unsuccessful Libertarian Party candidate for both the Senate and Montana’s governorship, who has developed argyria after ingesting home-made colloidal silver.  Argyria has given his skin a permanent blue-gray color.  He took the colloidal silver because of fears that the Y2K bug would make antibiotics unavailable.  Amazing.  Thanks to Hanna(h) at Borders for this one. =)

…I also learned that London can put together a heck of a little ceremony of their own… featuring such English things as David Beckham, Leona Lewis, Jimmy Page, a Routemaster-style bus, and people waiting for said bus in the rain.  I was a big fan.
