Science and Technology (2006.02.22)
Mythbusters: The Interview
Extensive question-and-answer session on Slashdot. These guys, like their predecessors on Beyond 2000, deserve accolades for popularizing science and technology.

Humor and Good News (2006.02.22)
Star Wars Holiday Special
It's awful...really, really awful. But about five minutes in is a sequence with the "Wookie Mom". Who knew such bad taste was possible?

Threats and Hazards (2006.02.22)
The Biggest Security Hole of All: People
In an experiment in London's financial district, a bunch of employees at financial-services firms willingly loaded CDs handed to them on the street onto their own computers, bypassing security steps they knew they were supposed to take. A good reminder why all the laws, all the surveillance, and all the Big Brother-like behavior in the world ultimately are no defense unless human behavior itself is changed.
