Today's Mighty Oak

opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your front door forever



Wikileaks has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.  How awesome would it be if it won?  I can only hope.

Buzzfeed has a list of Darth Vader doing strange things (at least, strange for the Dark Lord of the Sith), this may be my favorite:

And here is what Star Wars would look like if it was drawn by Dr. Seuss.

Warning, this will overdose you on cuteness:

And following that explosion of cuteness, this made me so incredibly proud.

I was never a huge fan of Groundhog Day, but maybe I wasn’t old enough when I first saw it.  But anyway, here’s a bunch of estimations about how much time actually takes place.

What would it look like if the entire population of the world moved together to a density like many cities:

I find this strangely funny, I think mostly because of the kid’s reactions:

And as a follow up to that, Newt Gingrich tries to defend his view of marriage.  And the response:

Gingrich would like to remind everybody that that marriage is between one man and one woman whom you abandon riddled with cancer on her hospital bed while you fuck the shit out of your mistress whom you later marry and cheat on with a third woman while screaming with Godly moral outrage about the infidelities of the president.

Bill Gates talks about this latest endeavor, eradicating polio around the world.  My favorite quote however, is where he states the vaccine-autism link is an ‘absolute lie.’  I’ve never really listened to him speak for that long, but he is very well spoken.  Maybe not as good as Steve Jobs, but better than what I had perceived he would be.  Anyway, here’s the clip:

And lastly today, this is scary first, because of the oppression of expression (and bloggers) and two, because it is a reality that in some areas, certain ethnic groups have limited rights.
