Pin the Tale on the Donkeys. Moral of the story? Politicians lie or can be wrong, no matter which party they are (/obvious).

List of 100 Movies that deserve more appreciation. I've seen a lot of these, theres a lot I want to check out now though.

Very interesting page with photos of Chernobyl and how it looks now.

Oregon County Bans All Marriages - Period. This is for straight and gay marriages. Sounds like a plan to me, at least everyone is treated equally now:)

You are Communist

What: Communism

Where: At the distant top-left of the politcal spectrum

What political extremity are you?

Holy crap PETA, are you guys seriously this insane? "The 5-inch-tall, red-and-white striped containers mimic KFC's buckets. But instead of fried chicken, each is filled with items including a bag of fake blood and bones, a bloodied plastic chicken and a cardboard caricature of a blood-spattered Colonel Sanders holding a butcher knife toward a terrified-looking chicken" These of course are also being handed out to school kids.

Some more pics of the E Ink reader.

E Ink book readers are on the way. Maybe I can finally convince Beth and Alyssa to read books this way, since it says it looks like its actual ink. I myself don't mind reading on computer or pda monitors, but I think it can bother other people's eyes. The reader can even display manga!

NASA - NASA Develops System To Computerize Silent, "Subvocal Speech". Anyone else interpret that to mean we can have telepathic type communication systems like they have in Ghost in the Shell:SAC? So the optical camouflage is covered and the communication system is set. Now we just need our cyberbrains and I'll be happy:)

Evolution as Fact and Theory. Best quote - "Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts do not go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's, but apples did not suspend themselves in mid-air, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from apelike ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other, yet to be discovered."
Explains what the difference between theories and facts are and why you can't say "Well, it's only a theory.

Really strange fish found. Including a humpback angler fish, the dumbo octopus, and the giant sea spider. Apparently the angler fish is some sort of crazy vampire.

Brain-controlled video game made. Now this is the kind of stuff I'm talking about. Ghost in the Shell thought communicators, here we come.

Well, apparently there won't be a super eruption at Yellowstone. Interview With USGS Yellowstone Scientists. There goes all that excitement:-P

PDA wristwatch. Is it sad that I would actually wear something like this, even though its basically "huge"? I should probably just wait for the ones made from flexible LCDs that wrap around your arm...
