Looking back on 2007, part 1

For the next several weeks, I'm going to post my favorite entries from Boing Boing this year. Here are some from January 2007:


Video of many car crashes on icy Portland road (Welcome to a world without friction.)

Having low expectations makes you happier (Danes don't expect good things to happen to them, and when something good does happen, they're thrilled.)

Canadian spy coins a "mistake" (Defense Security Service unable to substantiate the claim that coins had eavesdropping bugs in them.)

Man tasered for wearing baseball cap at city council meeting

(“It means more than just a hat,” he said. “It’s like my crown. It’s like asking a king to remove his crown.”)

Every issue of MAD on one DVD-ROM (That's over 600 issues -- 17,500 pages)
