The crazy guys at ZUG (which bills itself as “the world’s only comedy site”)
have pulled off a major prank, proving that no one
at retail stores even bothers to check that the signature on a charge slip
actually matches the one on the back of the credit card. John Hargrave,
who remarks that his normal signature looks like it was written “an
unusually talented chicken,” signed his charge slips as Shakespeare, Jesus,
Porky Pig (at Disneyland), etc., and no one batted an eye. He says he’s
thinking of legally changing his name to “I Stole This Card.” But I’ll stop

cost or whether it
was available in any countries outside Japan. But it
seemed like a very funny
Most laptop and desktop PCs today include one or more
Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports. But you may not have enough USB
devices to keep all those ports occupied. Fortunately, someone’s come
to the rescue with a coffee cup that plugs into any spare
USB port to keep your beverages steaming. The site where this is
advertised is all in Japanese – which I can’t read – so I can’t
tell you how much the USB Cup costs or even if you can order one
yet. But thanks to a graph on the site, I can state
that the plug-in cup (works with Windows or Macs!) will keep your
java hotter than an ordinary cup a toasty 18 degrees F. (10 C.)
