Venus Non-Flytrap
If you haven't already done so, go outside tonight and take a look at the moon and the planet Venus--it looks like they're practically touching. In reality, of course, they're at least several dozen miles apart, but the effect is still pretty cool. Is there such a thing as a "venusian" eclipse? If so, we're pretty close to it at the moment.

Word is that Monty Python's Life of Brian will be in theaters again later this spring. The re-release is intended to mark the blasphemous film's 25th anniversary, which created it's own firestorm of controversy in 1979. The timing is also intended to capitalize on the publicity surrounding Mel Gibson's take on Christ's crucifixion.

Life of Brian is arguably the single funniest movie ever made by intelligent lifeforms on Earth and/or Mars. The other three principle contenders for this honor would have to be Monty Python's Holy Grail, Airplane, and Gigli.

Incidentally, after three weeks on top, The Passion of the Christ has slipped to number two at the box office. It was replaced by Dawn of the Dead, which is also about people coming back from the dead.

And if that's not irony, I don't know what is.
