We haven't seen the CMX Rodent for a while, but I'm guessing this would be right up his alley (sorry, rat-run :wink: )

Peace, love and Mike. This is the story of Mike the Headless Chicken.

The Amazing, true story of this famous fowl dates back to September 10, 1945 when Mike, a young Wyandotte rooster, was about to become the dinner of Fruita, Colorado, farmer Lloyd Olsen.

With a sharp ax in hand, Mr. Olsen firmly held Mike, preparing to make the bird ready for his wife Clara's cooking pot. Mr. Olsen swung the implement, thereby lopping off poor Mike's head. Mike shook off the event, then continued trying to peck for food.

Mike's will to live remains an inspiration. It is a great comfort to know you can live a normal life, even after you have lost your mind.

Thanks, Mike!

These are two well established online communities where you can find answers to your questions.

MetaFilter
http://www.metafilter.com/

Ask.Metafilter
http://ask.metafilter.com/

Metafilter is a weblog (what's a weblog? | comprehensive history of weblogs) that anyone can contribute a link or a comment to. A typical weblog is one person posting their thoughts on the unique things they find on the web. This website exists to break down the barriers between people, to extend a weblog beyond just one person, and to foster discussion among its members.

If you're new to the site, I'd suggest taking a look around, checking out the archives, and getting a feel for the place. You might also consider registering as a member. Members can post comments, customize the look and behavior of the site.

After becoming a member, check out some of the links and think about leaving a comment or two. If you stick around for a while, you'll get a feel for what types of things are posted as links, and if you find something amazing and/or enlightening, please post it.

The privilege of posting links to main page comes after posting a few comments and being a member for at least a week. This lag is built in to allow new members to get used to the place and to understand what other members consider good links. With the current number of members, even if fewer than 1% of the total membership post a link each day, it's far too many links to take in. Please take extra special care when selecting a link for the front page. To get an idea of what constitutes a good link, take a look at the link guidelines, to hear some philosophies guiding the site and community, check out the new user message.

Lists! Everybody loves lists!
So, to browse some interesting lists... Listropolis is the place to go.


It’s been said that if you can’t find what you’re looking for, make it yourself. In searching for a list of lists, we noticed an obvious lack of sites that aggregate said lists, so Listropolis was born. We will be adding random lists that we find across the web, or lists submitted by our readers. Every list will give credit where credit is due, and will provide a link to the original list. Have we said list enough? Get used to it. But seriously, who doesn’t love a good list?
