R.I.P. Iwao Takamoto and Other Tidbits

- spanning_time Deathwatch: The creator of Scooby Doo, Iwao Takamoto died this week at that the age of 81. Scooby Doo was never one of our favorites, but we loved the episodes with crazy guest stars like The Three Stooges, The Harlem Globetrotters, or Don Knotts.

- Zoo Puts Humans On Display: Surely there are better ways to get some vacation time: "One of the human apes, Josh Penley, said the experiment was a chance to 'get myself out of my comfort zone and to get a week off work.'"

- Top 10 Most Ridiculous Products for Babies: Number one creeps us out so much we already know we're buying it once we get around to procreating. We decided long ago that our kids are going to be little science projects. We predict a lot of neuroses in their future, and correspondingly high therapy bills.
