Stumble Upon!

So as many of my friends know, I have been using the stumbleupon addon to find new and interesting sites.  It is probably one of the greatest addons that I have seen for IE/FireFox, in a long time.  Basically you download this tool bar (optional and configurable), configure your account with categories you would like to see, (ei: Comics, Computers, Linux, Comedy)  i keep meaning on posting great links i find with this tool, but i continue to forget.  So while im here late at work, i will post whatever links i stumble below, so you can get an idea of the awesome.  I wont lie, sometimes you find junk, but most of the time you find something entertaining.  I have spent a few nights up late telling myself just one more stumble for hours.

This great tool can be found at : http://www.stumbleupon.com/

Here are some stumbles tonight to wet your taste buds:

Why is Leather So Expensive?

So the other day I got to thinking, Why is leather so expensive?  Why is leather considered a luxury item?  The more i thought about this, the more confused i got.  As i sat there eating my hamburger in Cheeseburger in Paradise, i wondered,  how is it possible that Americans consume so much beef, yet we are still stupid enough to pay extra for leather seats.  Hell i ate that cow the seats should be free.  Ill tell you this much… ill get down to the bottom of this puzzle.
