01 FOR SALE: HOVERCRAFT Look for it in the new newsgroup!

02 STAR WARS: EPISODE 1 The official title: The Phantom Menace. Flame away, you drooling fanboy, you.

03 JOHN GLENN He's an astronaut! ...a Senator! astronaut! action figure!

04 THE INTERNET PIZZA SERVER Yet another totally useless web site. Check it out in your copious free time.

06 ACCIDENT Synonyms: force majeure, act of god, cruel hand of fate, "major bummer, dude!"

07 BREAKUPGIRL.COM This purveyor of relationship advice on the Web has signed a deal to develop a television sitcom based on her site. You knew it would happen, didn't you?

08 URBAN LEGENDS The "BILL SUX" Pentium chip is a hoax! It just goes to show-- you can't believe everything you read in Wired magazine.

09 KBHK The bay area UPN affiliate couldn't air the seventh-season premiere of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine because of an unresolved contract dispute. Oh, the humanity!
