Legal It's time for bed over here, but before I turn in with a nice cup of tea and a Gilmore Girls episode, we've got some good news for you: SCO has been dealt yet another major blow in its baseless lawsuit against Novell. A jury has ruled that Novell owns the UNIX copyrights - not SCO.

EVERYONE MUST GET STONED! Hookers and blow all around as we celebrate the end of thi--did that hand just twitch?

Seriously, let's not be too quick to celebrate here until we've removed the head from the body, burn the body and buried ashes separate from the head. Oh and make sure that there aren't any brothers we'd have to worry about. Goliath had four brothers*, and because the biblical King David didn't get them the same time he got Goliath he had to deal with them later when he was an old man. We don't want that to happen here!

Interesting. Out of curiosity, I looked up that Bible passage you listed there.

Not that I would believe anything the Bible had to say, but if I'm reading it correctly that passage asserts that David didn't kill Goliath. Unless he later killed another giant called Goliath.

People changed names all the time in many ancient cultures, often to commemorate a major life event (Abram became Abraham, for example, and Jacob became Israel). It's perfectly reasonable that when Goliath was killed in battle, one of his brothers would assume his name and superhero catchphrase ("the shaft of his spear is like a weaver's beam!") to continue the fight against Philistine's mortal enemies. Which leads to the question... who will now take on the name "Daryl McBride" ("the spark of his intellect is like a boll weevil's!")?
