Some odd disjointed notes

1) I am in a hotel for the week and was delighted to see I get the SciFi channel. Except when I turned it on last night they were showing professional wrestling. Huh? WTF? Sure it's fiction, but it's not science fiction... is it?

2) A UK channel is censoring smoking out of old cartoons. Um, why does this seem particularly silly to me? (Even as one whose allergies are affected by smoking and who generally supports efforts to minimize smoking in public places.) So smoking is bad but it is okay to have a character whacked in the head by a frying pan so they fall off a cliff while holding a stick of dynamite? Huh?

3) Sorry, but mice don't really like cheese. (Thanks to xsagirl for that link.)
