I’d like to start off this blog post with this picture:
I kind of wish that that is what the protests during the G-20 were like. Just sayin.
Slate has a great article about the artificial hymen, and how it is being banned in many countries. My favorite line (also picked out by some friends of mine, because apparantly we have a hive mind of some sort…or are really that cool, I’m looking at you Katrina):
In this way, the artificial hymen serves as a useful test of religious idiocy. If a $30 item that leaks fake blood violates your faith so profoundly that you must ban it, then what you have isn’t really a faith. It’s a fetish. And your fetish won’t survive globalization.
And then after I thought I knew what computer I was going to get, this comes along, with twice the RAM as the other one I was looking at. Also, when did Acer buy Gateway? I feel as though I missed that. Well, I know that I missed that.
I think this is a really good idea, and quite honestly, am suprized that no one came up with this before. I would love to do puppet shows on cold days!
I’ve never been able to really tell what was so good about high end TVs, maybe I just have low expectations. Maybe I’m more convinced that what I have now is fine. Maybe I’m a really bad graphic designer. Eh, take your pick, I’m going back to my animal mittens!
I knew PopCap was really successful. But I had no idea you could play their games inside World of Warcraft while waiting for party members or during loading/travel times. Good God. That’s like lacing crack with caffiene. And wrapping it in chocolate covered bacon. I would probably never leave Azeroth. Ever. The article doesn’t really talk about that, but does mention it, so I linked it.
Two really great, really snarky posts. The first from Daily Kos, which I’ve linked to before, but never really read. I might look into that. And the second from Andrew Sullivan. I’ll read Sullivan’s writing, but generally gravitate towards other writers for whatever reason.
That’s it for now, have a great one!
