Wilson's still out sick, but it's hard to miss the little guy when we have Natali Del Conte in the studio to keep us company. Our listeners in Southern California must miss him dearly, because they stomped their feet in unison at 4:04AM yesterday and caused a 4.4 magnitude earthquake! No major damage or injuries were caused by the quake, so we're taking this as a friendly warning not to break up the crew!
We're hoping none of us ever gets to see the backseat of the new Interceptor, Ford's new automobile that will soon replace the Crown Victoria as the official police vehicle. The car is outfitted with a twin-turbocharged engine, bigger brakes capable of surviving a 75-mph rear-end collision, "antistab" rear-window plating, and Ford's hands-free Sync technology. No word yet on whether or not Ford plans to update existing undercover patrol cars disguised as taxis. Yeah, we see you, coppers!
It's no surprise that Snooki and the other stars of MTV's "Jersey Shore" fully endorse Ugg Boots, but a new study by the head of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine might have them rethink their choice of footwear. No one's doubting their level of comfort, but some podiatrists are suggesting that the foot doesn't get the proper support inside the boots, which can lead to ankle, knee, hip, and back pain after prolonged wear. Ugg Australia commented that their boots are built for "comfort" rather than as "performance footwear," so be sure to limit the amount of time you spend in them!
I have to give fair warning about the pictures that we show after the break, because you might not like what you see. After yesterday's conversation about RuPaul's Dragulator, listeners Derrick and Paul took it upon themselves to create their versions of Natali and The 404 in drag! Click at your own risk.
There's plenty more to get to, including Nintendo D2 rumors and a segment on "marital aids" in the shower, but you'll have to check out the full episode to hear it all! Much thanks to Natali Del Conte for filling in for Wilson today, and don't worry, listeners: she'll be back on Thursday's show, as usual!
We also have plenty of 404 stickers left, so send us a SASE and don't forget to send us a picture of where you stick them; there's a good chance I'll use it on a blog post! Unique, high-quality pictures in landscape are ideal. Send to the404(at)cnet[dot]com.
